Preemptive moral of this story: When the entire government is run by rule of law-eviscerating, national sovereignty-destroying, liberal left commie bastards, its chief executive doesn't have to be a dictator, because he's part of an oligarchy that will do it all for him:
New legislation is reportedly being pushed to give illegal [alien]s the right to vote in New York City's elections next year.
The New York Post reports Bertha Lewis, head of the Black Institute....
No joke, by the way. You'll be shocked to learn that there is no "White Institute," unless you count a nuthatch, also in NYC, called the "William Alanson White Institute". Which is where the denizens of the "Black Institute", and the entire New York municipal government, belong, appropriately enough.
— part of a coalition of immigration-rights groups making the push — says a bill is expected to be introduced this spring.
Think about that phrase, folks: "illegal alien rights". Highly oxymoronic, no? Or at least it used to be.
"We want to expand the right to vote for everybody, not suppress the vote," Lewis said, the Post reports. "What a radical idea." [emphases added]
Indeed. Why let the law suppress voter fraud? What else would one expect to come out of the piehole of the former CEO of the defunct and re-imagined ACORN? You know what they say about the devil having many faces.
There are an estimated 1.3 million noncitizen residents in the city, about 500,000 of whom are [illegal]. Neither group is allowed to vote....
And there is a very good, sound reason for that: They're not Americans and, locally speaking, not New Yorkers, and they're not here legally. Put another way, they're invaders, and therefore legally not welcome here. It's the same reason why convicted felons didn't used to be allowed to vote.
Note the tense.
"People want to come out of the shadows," she said....
By not by going home and going through the process of coming here legally, like millions of immigrants have done over the course of American history, respecting the country they wanted to be their new home by respecting its laws first and foremost. Which is another synonymical definition of an "invader".
It'd make Big Bertha a "collaborator," wouldn't it?
....adding: "There will be a lot of support for it in the City Council.
I bet it will.
We want people to participate in civic life and be invested in what happens. It will lead to a healthier community."
Then let them come here legally. Otherwise they're freeloading invaders and can get the hell out.
But I'd advise New York Conservative Party Chairman Mike Long to chillax. He's right that this is "outrageous" and a "vote-buying scheme". That's simply what Democrats do. But it's not like it's going to affect the ideological tilt of the Big Apple, which was "baked" in that regard a long, long time ago. It's more like running up the score.
Exit rhetorical question: Do you think NYC is a sanctuary city? And why do you suppose that both stately Wayne Manor and Charles Xavier's School For Gifted Youngsters are far outside the Gotham City limits?
