New York Governor: Our State Can’t Tolerate Anyone Who Disagrees With Liberal Orthodoxy

Gid outta heeah!

Gid outta heeah!

The intolerance displayed in San Francisco towards Maria Conchita Alonso is no isolated incident.

And it is no coincidence that another display of intolerance surfaced in the news this week.

New York governor Andrew Cuomo labelled as "extremist" anyone who disagrees with the liberal creed, and went on to say that such dangerous people have no place in the Empire State.

"Agree or get out"....  A liberal version of "Love it or leave it."

What constitutes "extremism" according to Cuomo?  Being pro-life.  Not supporting his party's gun-control laws.   Even worse, Cuomo sees these "extremists" as package-deal bigots who are also "anti-gay" and love to see innocent people massacred with assault weapons.  In his own words:

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 if they are the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”

So there you have it.  A New York version of Castrogonia.  If you disagree with the party line, then you are a worm and deserve to be disenfranchised and driven out.   This ban on "extreme" thinking, of course, includes the entire Catholic Church, not to mention millions of New Yorkers who live outside of Greenwich Village.

From MediaIte:

Gov. Cuomo: Pro-Life, Pro-Gun, Anti-Gay ‘Extreme’ Conservatives ‘Have No Place’ in New York

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo had some seriously harsh words for “extreme conservatives” who are trying to make in roads in his state’s political sphere. During a conversation with radio host Susan Arbetter on The Capitol Pressroom Friday, Cuomo said “these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay” have “no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”

Responding to potential criticism that he’s leaving his “progressive” roots behind by reaching out to potential Republican donors, Cuomo shifted the attention to the “schism” in the Republican Party that is causing some conservatives to drift further to the right. “Is the Republican Party in this state a moderate party or is it an extreme conservative party?” he asked. “That’s what they’re trying to figure out.”

He went on to compare the issues in New York to the “gridlock in Washington”, which he said is “less about Democrats and Republicans” and “more about extreme Republicans versus moderate Republicans”...

... Cuomo did say that “moderate Republicans” have “a place in this state,” but “not what you’re hearing from them on the far right.”

Whole deal HERE, includes link to audio recording of Cuomo's remarks.

  • I fear we're going to see a lot more of this the closer we arrive to the mid-term elections. The CDR is here,riding the airwaves of the MSM.

    Well isn't Cuomo the little fascist--how in keeping with his heritage. If anybody doesn't belong, not just in NY but in the USA, it's a proto-totalitarian like him. Who the hell is he to decide who does and doesn't belong where and on what basis? It goes without saying that he'd never take that tack with truly radical leftist types, like the Bill Ayers crowd. And where's the Catholic Church on this? Are they just going to treat him like a naughty little boy or treat him as the dangerously unhinged thuggish politician he is? And I thought Howard Dean was a nasty, obnoxious prick. Lord help us.
