Andrew Cuomo: Right To Life, Pro-gun? Pack Your Bags!

Memo to New Yorkers: If you are an “extreme conservative” – as defined by Andrew Cuomo, that is – it’s time to pack your bags and leave; your governor says you “have no place in the state of New York.”


Saying “their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves,” Cuomo spoke with “The Capitol Pressroom” on Friday:



“You have a schism within the Republican Party. … They’re searching to define their soul, that’s what’s going on. … 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. … 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.”


Who in the heck is Andrew Cuomo to determine who does – and who does not – have a right to live in the state of New York? By the governor’s reasoning, do “extreme liberals” have the right to live in New York? Better yet, does the governor of a conservative state have the right to tell liberals they’re not welcome?

  1. Anyone notice Cuomo sounds like the Segregationists of the 60s? The never change… just pick other groups to treat unequally. If I was working in campaigns again, this is how I would approach this issue. #Liberalsonly
