Cuomo to conservatives: Get out!

If Gov. Andrew Cuomo had his way, a large segment of his state’s population would immediately be exiled from New York.

If Gov. Andrew Cuomo had his way, said Marta Mossburg, a large segment of his state’s population would immediately be exiled from New York. During a recent interview, the Democratic governor made the jaw-dropping statement that “extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay” have “no place in the state of New York.” That’s an incredibly intolerant stance from a man who’s governor of our third-largest state, with clear presidential ambitions. His characterization of widely held conservative views as “extremism” is no less troubling. If by “right-to-life,” Cuomo means people who support abortion restrictions after the first trimester, then he’s talking about “a hefty majority of Americans, according to the Pew Research Center.” If by “anti-gay” he means everyone who opposes same-sex marriage because of religious beliefs, then Cuomo is saying “Get out!” to New York’s millions of Roman Catholics, evangelical Protestants, and Orthodox Jews. Ultimately, Cuomo’s comments suggest that he believes that non-progressives “do not deserve a voice.” If a Republican governor said the same thing about liberals, he “would be eviscerated.”
