Andrew Cuomo: Pro-Life People “Have No Place in the State of New York”
Life News ^ | January 17, 2014 | Steven Ertelt

Posted on 01/17/2014 7:36:38 PM PST by NYer

Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York has already proven himself to be one of the most pro-abortion politicians in the country. He’s repeatedly pushed a bill that would make the state that has some of the highest abortion rates in the nation further down the road of unlimited abortions.

Now, Cuomo has said that pro-life people have no business living in the state. If the governor has any interest in pursuing national office with a potential Democratic presidential campaign, he’s definitely lost the majority of the country that appreciates the right to life of unborn babies.

But maybe Cuomo is doing the rest of the nation a favor. If he alienates enough pro-lifers, who move elsewhere, the state will continue to see its influence wane — as it further loses more Congressional seats to southern and western states as conservative New Yorkers look for more welcoming places to live.

As reported today:

Governor Cuomo is issuing a warning to what he refers to as the more conservative arm of the Republican party – you’re not welcome in the state of New York.

Moderate Republicans, or those most willing to capitulate to Cuomo’s own extreme agenda, still have the welcome mat rolled out.

Here’s Cuomo during a Friday morning conversation on the Capitol Pressroom (H/t Times Union):

You have a schism within the Republican Party. … They’re searching to define their soul, that’s what’s going on. Is the Republican party in this state a moderate party or is it an extreme conservative party? That’s what they’re trying to figure out. It’s a mirror of what’s going on in Washington. The gridlock in Washington is less about Democrats and Republicans. It’s more about extreme Republicans versus moderate Republicans.

… You’re seeing that play out in New York. … The Republican Party candidates are running against the SAFE Act — it was voted for by moderate Republicans who run the Senate! Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves. Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.

If they’re moderate Republicans like in the Senate right now, who control the Senate — moderate Republicans have a place in their state. George Pataki was governor of this state as a moderate Republican; but not what you’re hearing from them on the far right.”

Cuomo has made a career of referring to anyone that opposes his agenda as “extreme” while simultaneously referring to that agenda as “common sense.”

In NY, you can have any belief you like, as long as it is the same as Cuomo’s. You have the freedom to think just like him. Gotta love the left and their tolerance.

He’s so afraid of them (this means the likes of Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin) that he thinks they are hateful monsters. But it is he who has put himself in the path of God’s burning anger. I think we would do well not to get all that huffy ourselves. I think we are watching a nemesis situation begin to form.

http://www.frontpagemag.com/2014/dgreenfield/no-country-for-liberal-republicans/

From the above link:

And then one day, suddenly, the good Republican who has held all the right opinions, is pounced on, beaten, bloodied and dragged through the mud. At innumerable sweaty press conferences held to apologize for some sin that wouldn’t even make the last minute of the evening news if it were carried out by a member of the progressive club in good standing, the former media darling wonders why this is happening to him. It is happening to him because the left doesn’t believe in exceptions to its rules.

The good Republican thought that he had made peace with the left. All he ever had was a temporary truce of mutual convenience that ended once he moved from convenient to competitor.

Well if you want it: with the measure you judge so will you be judged.

How do you like that?

God isn’t mocked. Your pride WILL fall, but how it falls is up to you. On hard cement and shattering, or gently caught by the Lord and turned to His glory?

We have crossed a major rubicon of morality when a US State Governor outright proclaims that within their legal jurisdiction unborn children are not safe.

Since blacks babies are disproportionately exterminated by abortions as compared to the percentage of white infants killed, one has to conclude that Cuomo wants more black abortions because he hates black people and he wants their population limited. Cuomo must be a racist.

So, not content with exacerbating the mortgage mess by suing banks to force them to make risky loans to unqualified buyers (mainly blacks and Hispanics), former HUD secretary Cuomo is now trying to decrease the number of blacks in the future.

You're right... he is afraid. I'll bet he's never met a member of the Tea Party - - his prejudice and fear is causing his hatred. It's sad.

The majority of votes came from the major cities - NYC, Buffalo, etc. The rest of the state is red.

It’s a huge exaltation of pride... of women who are of, by, and for their own selves. It used to be viewed as an honor to be a mother... now it’s being viewed as a plague... and not to single out the moms, there are the toms (tom cats).

It’s being frowned on from heaven. It’s going to bring its own judgment on itself. The Democrats have gone so mad they are going to torpedo their own fortunes. Just watch. They are not cleverer than God.

But those who DO trust in the Lord and call upon Him will be saved. This is not the same thing as “conservatives according to the flesh” powered by their own egos, who are like trojan horses to the cause.

Look at your own tag. You are to all appearances a cruel self powered tyrant, and I can tell you there is one set of liberals who now actually can share a REASON to be angry at “conservatives.” Smart ass!

You hate God’s love. God’s love also hates you because you give it no room.

I do believe, that whenever abortion became legal, New York was the only state which hosted such procedures. Then California legalized it...Then one by one other states opened clinics so that misguided women did not have to cross country to do the deed.

God is bigger than you are, dweeb. And God gives me courage. I don’t feel the least bit smaller on account of you. The attacks you launch are proof that it is God with me.

I don’t have to shout you down now, dweeb, either. Events orchestrated by the real live God will do so quite nicely if you don’t look above instead of looking down on people. What are “pro life values” to you? Why should you logically care about them? Your “conservatism” is shell-hollow without a robust affirmation of God, who seeks the love of every one of those babies. And even of you, but you won’t respond. At least yet.

My thoughts, exactly. Wonder how many abortions his live in girlfriend has had. His mother might be thinking, if I only knew...

He sounds like the muslims against the jews. It’s not his state and he doesn’t get to determine who belongs here or not. Wonder what the Vatican will think of him now - since they gave him an annulment from his wife and three female children.

I think of New York State as a place where history has run its course. Most of the place saw its heyday decades ago. Heck, the place was even on the first steps into its long-term decline back when It's A Wonderful Life was set there -- in 1945.
