King Andrew's New York is a liberal utopia

In his typical “my way or the highway” recent interview with Susan Arbetter on the Capital Pressroom program, Gov. Andrew Cuomo has made it crystal clear that there is no room in New York for those who disagree with King Andrew.

He stated, “The gridlock in Washington is less about Democrats and Republicans. It’s more about extreme Republicans. Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault weapons, anti-gay?”

Cuomo continued, “Is that who they are? Because, if that is who they are, and they are the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”

Isn’t that odd? What happened to the tolerance toward differing opinions that the liberals are always preaching? Our dictator defines extremists as those who oppose abortion, believe firmly in the Second Amendment, and define marriage as the union between a man and a woman. (By the way, governor, that doesn’t make them anti-gay.)

Consider, Governor, those gray-haired ladies in church on Sunday, or the old gents in the local diner telling tall tales about their youth. Do they want to have a baby’s skull crushed in the womb and its brains sucked out through a tube?

Do they want to change the definition of marriage to one that disagrees with their God and their Bible? Should these old soldiers forfeit the weapons with which they saved our freedom?

If they answer “no,” does that make them evil, and no longer welcome in New York? Does that make them extremists? In Gov. Cuomo’s New-York, apparently!

Think about what Gov. Cuomo is saying! Isn’t he talking about your grandfather or grandmother or maybe, your aunt or uncle? Do you or your parents fit the description of Cuomo’s unworthiness?
