French President Francois Hollande promised to change French electoral laws so that residents, without French citizenship, will be allowed to vote in municipal elections. Muslims tipped the election with 93 percent of voting Muslims, casting their vote for Socialist Hollande. This is how a country is changed “fundamentally” (and how anti-Semitism spreads throughout the West). New York Mayor commandant de Blasio said he is willing to “continue the conversation” to allow non-citizens to vote in local elections. A Councilman in the District of Columbia is proposing that non-citizens be able to vote in the city’s municipal elections–with a huge Hispanic presence there, and other cities are looking at the same.

The French vote marks the first time that Muslims have determined the outcome of a presidential election in a major western European country; it is a preview of things to come.
As the politically active Muslim population in France continues to swell, and as most Muslims vote for Socialist and leftwing parties, conservative parties will find it increasingly difficult to win future elections in France.
According to a survey of 10,000 French voters conducted by the polling firm OpinionWay for the Paris-based newspaper Le Figaro, an extraordinary 93% of French Muslims voted for Hollande on May 6. By contrast, the poll shows that only 7% of French Muslims voted for the incumbent, Nicolas Sarkozy.
An estimated 2 million Muslims participated in the 2012 election, meaning that roughly 1.7 million Muslim votes went to Hollande rather than to Sarkozy. In the election as a whole, however, Hollande won over Sarkozy by only 1.1 million votes. This figure implies that Muslims cast the deciding votes that thrust Hollande into the Élysée Palace.

It’s coming to America. Non-citizens voting in local elections in the U.S. has been proposed in various cities for years. History shows that once the public hears it over and over, we become immune to the consequences.
More cities are trying to follow in the footsteps of D.C.-area jurisdictions to give non-citizens the right to vote in municipal elections.
Though many of these proposals have failed, the Washington Post notes that activists in Amherst, Massachusetts, Madison, Wisconsin, and Burlington, Vermont are also clamoring to give voting rights to non-citizens. In New York, as Breitbart News has noted, Mayor Bill de Blasio has said he would like to “continue the conversation” this year on giving voting rights to non-citizens.
Six Maryland jurisdictions and Chicago allow non-citizens to vote in some local elections.
The Post notes that opponents believe the campaign to grant voting rights to non-citizens “is part of a political scheme to create more Latino voters, who polls show tend to prefer Democrats,” especially since the “largest number of green-card holders are from Mexico.” Source: Breitbart
European Union citizens have the right to vote in any EU member state where they reside. Francois Hollande has not yet made good on his campaign promise.
