Incorrect in that they create built environments that are hostile towards other modes.

In the same way that opening a cupcake shop in a neighborhood forces people to gain weight? Sounds rather tenuous.

In DC, even though a lot of buildings have parking minimums (more than you'd think), some new developers are applying for exemptions to the parking minimums because the costs associated with building parking infrastructure within the current built environment are prohibitively high - often requiring strict adherence to a variety of zoning and historic preservation laws. So it really depends on the environment whether parking minimums will "create" built environments or the other way around -- or not at all.
