Skip to comments.Malkin: Lessons for Shove Guv Andrew Cuomo
Posted on 01/21/2014 4:54:07 PM PST by jazusamo
Not so fast, Andrew Cuomo. We see what you did there. After publicly bashing conservative New Yorkers as "extreme" people who have no place in his state, the intolerant Democratic governor wants to blame the media for his unmistakable contempt for those who oppose abortion, support gun rights and defend traditional marriage.
Newsflash: Crapweasel politicians can backtrack and scapegoat, but they can't hide.
When he railed against socially conservative Republican candidates in a radio interview last week, Cuomo hyperbolically singled out those he called "right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay" citizens. Sounding unapologetically purge-tastic, the governor said these political opponents "have no place in the state of New York, because that's not who New Yorkers are." His bigoted comments provoked a fierce social-media-driven backlash led by devout Catholics and Second Amendment activists in the Empire State. And now, he's got job-creating, tax-paying conservative business people threatening to leave. Heckuva job, Andy!
In a desperate damage control attempt, Cuomo issued a statement claiming that the New York Post "distorted" his words. It's always the messenger's fault. The Shove Guv also accused his critics of being "entirely reckless with facts and the truth." Really? There was no equivocation in Cuomo's political eviction wish. Whether he was talking about conservative candidates and/or the voters and donors who support them, you can't get any clearer than "have no place in the state of New York."
Translation: You don't belong. Pack your bags. Don't let the door hit ya on the way out. Scram.

Cuomo is a “service monkey”
Yep. Michelle Malkin always does a great job.
I was planning on doing a Hall of Fame tour this summer (visiting the Pro Football, Rock and Roll, Baseball, and Basketball Hall of Fames, all during one week since they’re virtually all along the same stretch). Wondering if I should skip Cooperstown so I wouldn’t have to spend money in Cuomo’s kingdom.
This is how liberals think.
Remember during the Chick Fil A controversy, when mayors such as SF mayor Lee, and Chicago mayor Emmanuel, said Chick Fil A was not welcome in their cities?
This is the mindset of liberals. In their perfect world, you would be denied your business license unless you support liberal causes such as homosexual marriage.
And if liberals get too much power, they will attempt to drive Chick Fil A andHobby Lobby and other targeted companies out of business.
It would be great if all the conservatives moved out and took their jobs and businesses with them.
Let the libs support their utopian fantasy without the conservatives to mooch from.
I would say a solid majority of the voters, and an even greater proportion of the people in NY agree with Cuomo. I would also say that same solid majority is too stupid, greedy, or evil to understand why ignoring constitutional protections of the minority is perilous. It will be a long time, if ever, before conservatives will have any legal means of protecting their rights or redressing their greivances in NY. If it were me I would start making arrangements to get out before they come up with some sort of “exit tax.”
I’d bet this will hurt New York with tourism this Spring and Summer and many New Yorkers have to be really ticked.
We’ve been seeing a lot of “Move your business to New York and get ten tax free years” commercials lately. First off, they must be determining who comes in by extensive application. Then, who’d believe anything a commie administration claimed anyway?
I live 25 miles north of Cooperstown. It is a quaint little village in upstate NY, lots of things to see, Hall of Fame, small shops, great restaurants and fine beer. Dont let the Governor scare you away. Upstate NY is not like down state.
The only money you would spend in NY would be any entrance fee there might be to Cooperstown. And if you can somehow snag free tickets, then you could see it without spending any money and leaving only a bit of tire rubber on their hole-ier than thou roads.
I didn't read it in the Post, Gov., I heard the audio of your insane rant, you psychotic dumbass. lol
Joseph Stalin, Speech on Agrarian Policy Dec. 27, 1929
Was this policy correct? Yes, it was absolutely correct at the time. Could we have undertaken such an offensive against the kulaks some five years or three years ago? Could we then have counted on success in such an offensive? No, we could not. That would have been the most dangerous adventurism.
An offensive against the kulaks is a serious matter. It should not be confused with declamations against the kulaks. Nor should it be confused with a policy of pinpricks against the kulaks,
But today? What is the position now? Today, we have an adequate material base for us to strike at the kulaks, to break their resistance, to eliminate them as a class, and to replace their output by the output of the collective farms and state farms.
I heard the audio of it also and read a piece that his staff is trying to say he was misquoted and it was taken out of context.
That turkey Cuomo said what the Post wrote and his staff is lying big time.
I always find it fascinating when a politician says something asinine and pretends they didn’t say it, even with video or audio proof. It’s almost that after a while they have no concept of integrity, responsibility or reality of the situation.
The smart Jews left Germany in 1933. The ones who tried to stick it out were gassed.
Michelle Malkin and Judge Jeanine are in a class by themselves. I love watching both of them rip liberals a new one. I can hear the cutting sarcasm and disgust in the judge's every word. I despise rats as much or more than these two do.
This is going to be an extraordinarily ugly political year, and people like Cuomo would be humbled if they were capable of the virtue of humility. What a pity for the country that they are not.
Yep, both of them tell it like it is when it comes to liberals, they don’t pull punches.
Just imagine if Ted Cruz said in a speech:
“There is no place in America for progressives (liberals) who are destroying this country. Get out for your own good”
Or if a Republican said :
“There is no room for gays in (his Southern conservative state)”
All hell would break loose
AMEN...You’re precisely right!
The Catholic church in NY should ban the SOB from ever being in a church again. Period.
CELEBRATE DIVERSITY!- ( that's an order)
“And now, he’s got job-creating, tax-paying conservative business people threatening to leave.”
And that is our only hope. This kind of frank talk is great news, everyone knows he meant it.
If you have acquired wealth and wish to keep or grow it, you had better get out of blue states while you can. We can pick up the pieces later and huge fortunes will be made.
We really need to bring back tar and feathers.
I’m pretty sure Cathy Donohue, one of the people shown in the photos, is the sister of William Donohue, head of the Catholic League.
No thanks. The pro-deathers can have NY all to themselves.
I’ve heard it’s pretty good.
It may be a saving grace that they are not capable of humility.
I’d have to tell you I’ve worked in NYC and lived in upstate New York for awhile(near Cooperstown) The two regions might as well be two separate countries really. There is no love loss between the two. Folks upstate are not like the ‘’city folk’’.
Thanks for linking, that’s a very good article.
The speakers made excellent points while at the same time not lowering themselves to Cuomo’s level.
Tar and feathers seem appropriate to me.
I believe this policy is what prompted a HUGE, multi-page business real estate advertising supplement last week. I think it was the Times; could have been the Journal. Now that he’s started this thing, he’s not going to be able to screen out the conservatives. Ha. Ha.
Given the state that NY has gotten itself into with its crooked politicians, we might run out of tar and feathers within a week.
New Yorkers have some understanding of big industry. They’ll have to set up an assembly line and do it in large batches! lol
You are right. They are VERY different. I go to the state conventions sometimes (GOP) and so get to see the political types from all over the state in action.
It is an eye-opener.
They have completely different issues locally and statewise, and are MUCH more conservative than the NYC people. The ones from the western part of the state speak with Midwestern accents, just to give you an idea. It’s a big state.

Extend your trip a little farther west and go to the Air Force Museum in Dayton. I’ve been several times and it is fantastic.
Five years ago, when my son was a junior at Purdue, his idea of Spring Break was a fathe-son trip to Cooerstown instead of going to Florida to drink beer and chase bikinis. How could I say no? It was definitely off-season and we could go through The Hall at our leisure. I got to tell him about all the guys I saw play. We stopped in Buffalo on the way back to catch a Flyers-Sabres game. It was a great trip.
I would love to see Rick Perry from Texas run commercials in New York telling them how much pro life conservatives and their business are welcomed in Texas.
Played right, this could be the end of any future political aspirations for Cuomo.
There needs to be a split. I would say the boundary would be at Orange and Dutchess Counties.
Cuomo was born on third and thinks he hit a triple...
If it wasn’t for ‘daddy’ he’d be selling shoes at JC Penney...
LOL! Now that’s hilarious and absolutely true!
Even though NY is a lib state Cuomo may just find a lot of backlash from his idiotic rant.
Cooperstown is a baseball`s fan must, loved it.
Holy cow. It looks like Hiroshima.
My wife and I thank the Governor for his bigoted statement - we were deadlocked as to whether to spend a portion of our spring vacation in New York City or Myrtle Beach, but after hearing that conservatives such as us weren’t welcome in NY it looks as though the money we’ll be spending on hotels, restaurants, shops and entertainment will be going to the good people of South Carolina.....
