You Might Be A Racist If...

You don't believe that everybody, everywhere on planet earth has a right to vote in your national, state and local elections.

In advance of the 2009 citywide elections, a coalition of immigrant and
advocacy organizations is reigniting a fight to give noncitizens the right to
vote in municipal elections, drawing the ire of opponents who argue that voting
is a right for American citizens only.

At a rally outside City Hall yesterday organized by the New York
Coalition to Expand Voting Rights, supporters of a City Council bill that would
extend voting rights to 1.3 million noncitizen New Yorkers said it’s unfair that
immigrant residents pay more than $18 billion in state income taxes when they
can’t vote for their representatives. The group is planning to pressure elected
officials to back the legislation, which has been on file for more than two
years but hasn’t
moved forward.

A supporter of the bill, Council Member Robert Jackson of Harlem, {snip} suggested that those opposed to giving noncitizens the right to vote might be motivated by racism...

Of course if you take this logic to it's natural conclusion, tourists, who pay taxes (and generate untold billions in revenue) every time they purchase a product in America, have a right to vote here as well...

Then again, this is what happens in a multicultural nation. It's called identity politics and is about attaining power through media extortion and political blackmail.

After all, if it weren't for the fact that the overwhelming majority of illegals were non-Whites, then the "racism" angle would not be playable in the current migration/invasion debate.

Put another way, if it were 20 million Swedes or Irishmen who were here illegally, marching through the streets demanding extra-special rights, our government wouldn't hesitate for a moment to crack them over the head and ship their asses back to where they came from...
