Skip to comments.Andrew Cuomo: Pro-Life People “Have No Place in the State of New York”
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 youre not welcome in the state of New York.
Moderate Republicans, or those most willing to capitulate to Cuomos own extreme agenda, still have the welcome mat rolled out.
Heres Cuomo during a Friday morning conversation on the Capitol Pressroom (H/t Times Union):
You have a schism within the Republican Party. Theyre searching to define their soul, thats whats going on. Is the Republican party in this state a moderate party or is it an extreme conservative party? Thats what theyre trying to figure out. Its a mirror of whats going on in Washington. The gridlock in Washington is less about Democrats and Republicans. Its more about extreme Republicans versus moderate Republicans.
Youre 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 thats who they are and theyre the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because thats not who New Yorkers are.
If theyre 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 youre 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.
So is he promising to commit suicide? Can we hold him to it?
so when is this bastard going to kill himself?
My, things are getting ghoulish. This is no way to get blessed.
Is Cuomo loves abortion so much, he should take one for the cause and off himself..PLEASE..I’ll even supply him with the pills if he just does it..I see that the far left is making Conservatives the new Jews of this century..pretty soon they will be demanding we get put into ovens
How bout blacks or gays Mario? Are they allowed to live in your state or would you like to put them on cattle cars too?
These people believe this sort of thing with all the fervor of a reformed drunk. They are dangerous beyond belief. They can switch their hate to anything at a moments notice.
What a Satanic beast he is.
There’s no place for Demwits, except Hell.
Him run for national office? he has a face that looks like a sphincter on a baboon! And even a baboon has more feeling for a child than he does.
I don’t know, but you do seem to be coming across like an ass.
How about affirming that God is dangerous to them beyond belief??
The worst thing isn’t even these murders. It’s booing God.
One more delusional democrat. The little sh*t thinks he's dictator... Cuomo's got an Obama-complex...
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.
Cuomo’s an extremist - the FBI and Homeland need to check him out...
New York, the pro death state. Democrats and death are friends.
Since he WAS elected governor, and he IS as anti-life as can be... I’d say he’s right. Pro-life? Get outta NY.
