Home builder commentary from our survey this month was about as negative as I've seen to date. Here's some of the market color that jumped out...
#OklahomaCity builder: "Biggest challenge is your customers who just closed their home and see you drop prices by $30,000."
#Jacksonville builder: "Buying land at the top of the market and having to pull every incentive lever to sell is not a recipe for success. We'll cut starts ~60% to 70% in 2023."

THREAD: Did these people inflame tensions and/or attacks against Hindus in the UK?

Sunny Hundal | Journalist: Cricket fans of mixed faith clashed in #Leicester, Hundal posted a tweet claiming “In Leicester extremist Hindutva groups go on the rampage in Leicester. Shocking stuff”. This unsubstantiated claim was a dog whistle that may have incited attacks.

Dr Rita Pal | Pakistani-British doctor: Known for raising issues relating to #Pakistani politics in the #UK. During the recent violence in Leicester, we believe she assisted the instigators and the Muslim extremist rioters to identify an apparent “RSS office” and attack it.

“The purpose of the statement,” according to @pbmehta "was to subtly signal out the Indian state as a protector of Hindus". What’s wrong with that?

#Leicester #Birmingham #HindusUnderAttackInUK
As and when, there is a real or imaginary attack on Christianity anywhere in the world, the US and the UK are the first ones to react. So do Islamic nations when they think Islam is under attack in any part of the world. @pbmehta

#Leicester #Birmingham #HindusUnderAttackInUK
The Indian Govt took cudgels on behalf of Afghan Sikhs when the community was attacked by Islamists in Afghanistan. In #Leicester, what option did Indian Government have? @pbmehta

It was not a Hindu-Muslim dispute in #Leicester. It was Ind vs Pak. The violence began on Aug 28 after Ind defeated Pak in a T20 match. British Muslims of Asian origin snatched the Indian flag and desecrated it, resulting in clashes between anti-India and pro-Pakistan elements.
On Sep 4, Pakistan won the match and almost 10,000 youth joined in from Birmingham. Charged Muslims assembled in a stadium and declared ‘Islam is in danger’. This slogan is a euphemism for declaring a war against non- Muslims by the believers.
Violence against '#Kafirs' followed and continued unabated for days. The current dispute which started with an insult to tricolour, ended in Hindu-Muslim clashes and desecration of temples. #Leicester #Birmingham #LeicesterHindusAttacked

Shocking #Hinduphobia. The shameful silence of the British Media. Assault on a Hindu temple & Hindus in #Birmingham by Muslim extremists.

- Screams of Allah Hu Akbar
- Go drink some cow pi*s
- Go eat cow s**t
- Piss drinking b****ds
- Abusing the police & throwing missiles
A dangerous plot. This is not a Hindu-Muslim clash, this is an outright attack on Hindus by #Islamists. And then they play the victim!

Their hate is clear to see. This has always been the case of Islamist hate and not being able to accept non-Muslims, particularly #Hindus.

Why Did British Police Ignore Pakistani #Muslim Rape Gangs Abusing 1,400 Rotherham Children? Political Correctness - Forbes

#Liecester #Birmingham
If British #Hindus are expecting Police to protect them, then they are mistaken.

Remember you are all of Kshatriya descent.

Terrorists only fear powerful, take Israel or China. Don’t give in even a centimetre. Fight back, this is our Era.

1/ I was there to show support to the local temple, the crowds have gone home with a massive stench of mairjuana, I spoke to four lads and they didn't even have a clue why they were there. #birmingham #smethwick. Anon protest called, no ring leaders...
Again, nobody knows who called for this, nothing was achieved and it just throws all the hard work others have done. Kudos to @theabrahamicfdn for coming with other faith groups to stand in solidarity with the Mandir, which they appreciated.
Extremism and stupidity on all fronts should be condemned - at least protest with facts rather than rhetoric and hate. Finally thanks to @WMPolice for quickly ending the situation and dispersing these people.

Do you remember how the British Media covered #TrojanHorseAffair?

As @nytimes latest podcast shows, there was no plot and the media failed to ask basic questions around the letter and its origins.

Lives ruined. Communities slurred. Will newspapers and broadcasters apologise? ImageImageImageImage
As @OborneTweets has argued; “With few exceptions, journalists failed to examine the underlying facts while repeating what turned out to be false allegations.”…
The investigation by @samirashackle in @gdnlongread states,“It is hard to imagine these kinds of stories garnering such levels of media attention had they not involved Muslim staff or pupils.”…

Fresh October home builder survey results. Top themes: 1) Builders are finally lifting sales caps (though not all). 2) Lack of lots & land development delays will hold back growth in 2022. 3) Most builders expect prices to keep rising. Market commentary to follow…
#ColoradoSprings builder: “One cautious trend to watch is single-family rental businesses paying more for land than builders. This will suck up trade capacity & supply at a time we can't afford it.”
#Denver builder: “Traffic & sales definitely slowing down, but also following a more seasonal pattern as compared to 2020. Resale inventory is still historically low. Rents are skyrocketing again.”
