Glenn excoriates NY Governor for telling ‘extreme conservatives’ to get out

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo made headlines over the weekend for comments he made about “extreme conservatives” in New York State. During an interview with Susan Arbetter on WCNY radio on Friday, Cuomo criticized “right-to-life,” “pro-assault weapon,” “anti-gay” conservatives:

CUOMO: The Republican Party candidates are running against the SAFE Act — it was voted for by moderate Republicans who run the Senate! 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.

Cuomo did lend his support to the “moderate Republicans” that have consistently worked with Democrats to pass his agenda. But he urged the “extreme conservatives” to “figure out if your extreme conservative philosophy can survive in this state and the answer is no.”

On radio this morning, Glenn questioned whether or not the New York outpost of TheBlaze would still be welcome in the state given the company’s pro-life, pro-Second Amendment stance. Furthermore, Glenn questioned what Cuomo meant by the term “anti-gay” for he couldn’t think anyone who is against a homosexual’s right to live and work in society.

The governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, said some conservatives have no place in the state of New York. ‘Extreme conservative’ – the right-to-life, pro-assault weapon, and anti-gay have no place in the state of New York because that’s not what we as New Yorkers are.

Wow, I didn’t know you could speak for everybody in New York. And I don’t even know what ‘anti-gay’ means. You’ll have to be more specific because I’m the guy who holds two out of those three opinions. They’re the first two. The third is: I stand with members of GLAAD or anybody who is a fascist and says you don’t have a right to live, you don’t have a right to work, you don’t have a right to pursue your happiness. I’ll stand against anybody who is a fascist, whether it’s a heterofascist or a homofascist. I’ll stand against you. And I will join with anybody who understands what fascism is because I still find these things self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they’re endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. And nobody can change them.

Now, Andrew Cuomo says, who are these extreme conservatives who are right to life, pro-assault weapon and anti-gay… because that’s not who New Yorkers are. Well, I’d like to ask a few questions.

If you’re a moderate conservative, does that mean you’re okay with killing half the babies? Is there a number, Governor Cuomo, because right-to-life doesn’t make you a moderate to, say, half the babies? By the way, the numbers in your state fall apart… Right now it is up to five months… you can come in and kill your baby. But once you go above five months, everything starts to change with your constituents… Most people will say they’re absolutely pro-life, with an exception of incest, rape, and life of the mother. That’s where the numbers start to really get strong. And that doesn’t seem extremist. That seems rational to me. That seems like somebody who has a heart. Now, I know there are a lot of people that say, I don’t agree with that. And quite honestly, Governor, I wish I could join them. I wish I could be that way. But my heart won’t let me join them… But I don’t condemn them… I want to learn from them. And I might find that they’re absolutely right. I might find that they’re absolutely wrong. But I will decide that.

When it comes to the Second Amendment, let me ask you something: What kind of gun is okay? Because if I take the metal or the plastic off of an AR, I pretty much have a deer rifle. It’s only that we’ve spray painted them black and made them look spooky. Yes, they’re semi-automatics, but so are semi-automatic guns. Lee Harvey Oswald killed with the bolt action, so he had to put another round in the chamber himself. But look at the damage he did. So where is the line here? Is it only the ones that are spooky looking and painted black? Are deer rifles okay? And if I made an AR look like a deer rifle, I’m sure, Governor, you wouldn’t know the difference. Would that be okay? I want to know where the line is on guns because I really thought abortions should be safe and rare. I thought that was your position. Now it’s anybody who is pro-life is an extremist. Right now you’re saying ‘assault weapons’, but all of the laws that are being enacted in the state of New York are not just against assault weapons. They’re against any weapon.

And I’m sorry, Governor, but I don’t know anybody who is anti-gay. And if they do, I would be the first to point them out and say, ‘That person hates gay people because they’re gay.’ There are gay people that I don’t like. It has nothing to do with their sexuality. There are straight people I don’t like. It has nothing to do with they’re sexuality. I think basing your like and dislike on somebody’s sexuality is one of the most moronic things I’ve heard. How about on this Martin Luther King, Jr. Day we judge the man by the content of his character… because I have a dream today that someday liberals and conservatives, our children can go and play together, and learn together, and be together. I have a dream today that I’m not a second-class citizen in this country.

My good friend, Pastor Hutcherson, died a few months ago. He was a black man who watched the freedom buses burn. He watched them burn. He watched his own people beaten. He hated Martin Luther King when he was young because he wanted revenge. And then he found the Lord. And that changed his heart. He no longer wanted revenge. He was thirsty for love. And he spent his whole life trying to find people who are like-minded, that understood anger and rage is not the answer. Love is the answer. If you say that people who are pro-life, pro-assault weapon, and however you define anti-gay don’t have a place in your society and in your state, I don’t think I have a place in your state… I don’t want to live in a country where we round people up for their opinion. The arrogance is astounding from the left.

Cuomo’s office has since come out and said the governor’s comments were “distorted.” The office points to another portion of the interview in which Cuomo says “it is fine” to oppose gun control measures and to be anti-abortion, adding that “he respects both positions.”

    Andrew Cuomo just outed himself as a lunatic. Unfortunately, New York state outside of Albany and NYC isn’t simply a liberal funny farm. There are lots of Republicans in the state, and he just told every one of them to move out.

    I wonder what they are going to do when the tax revenues take the hit from all of the successful conservatives moving out under the governor’s orders?

    The man is a dyed in the wool idiot who hasn’t figured out that alienating the people who make the most income and pay the most taxes in his state is a really bad idea – yet.

    I hope they enjoy the new third world status he and the mayor of NYC are creating.

    Ever since Obama shafted the American people by becoming the first Illegal President, the Liberals have become emboldened beyond belief. Cuomo’s words is the culmination of the Tyranny of the Left when he now unabashedly ostracizes Conservatives, as if he owns his state. I have to wonder if this man ever even thought that there are Conservatives in his state and how’d they feel about his rhetoric.

    Liberals are like mad dogs released from their cages and need to be contained. We conservatives must fight back and fight back hard, or we will be overrun by the likes of Cuomo, De Blasio, the depraved homosexuals, and the organized murder syndicate called Planned Parenthood.

    Conservatives, do not give in an inch anymore. It’s time to take a hard stance and fight back with equal or stronger rhetoric than what these nutty Liberals are dishing out!

    The governor might be putting the label “extreme Conservative” onto every Tea Party person, they seem to protest an awful lot about all three of the things he mentioned. Also having this topic means you guys are inconsistent once AGAIN. You love talking about the founding fathers and how there should be states rights. But when a governor decides he wants certain people to leave his state all Yuri can do is get upset. WHAT in heaven’s name do you think states rights IS? It means if you don’t like how one place acts you can always go to any of the others. These days there are forty nine of them plus territories held by America. Unlike 200+ years ago you have PLENTY of choices.

    Too bad the 5 counties that make up NY city + the couple counties that touch & therefore go along with NY city can outvote the entire rest of the state.

  • Carl-Cathy Wisnesky

    Sorry, but any city that would vote in a mayor that essencially ran on a Socialist/anti-constitutional Republic platform does not have citizens that are “fine”. Further, by saying that the “moochers voted these idiots in office” implies 1 of 2 possibilities: Either the cities is full of moochers (not fine) or a majority of the people are “fine” but did not vote so they deserve what they get. Either way, the NY city area is controlling the rest of the state by having a majority in the state legislature that makes the laws for & spends the tax dollars of the entire state.

    Mario Cuomo, September 13, 1984
    “… that’s not easy; applying religious belief to everyday life often presents difficult challenges. It is always been that way. It certainly is today….
    ” In addition to all the weaknesses, dilemmas and temptations that impedes every pilgrim’s progress, the Catholic who holds political office in a pluralistic democracy – who is elected to serve Jews and Muslims, atheists and Protestants. as well as Catholics – bears special responsibility- He or she undertakes to help create conditions under which all can live with a maximum of dignity and with a reasonable degree of freedom; where everyone who chooses may hold beliefs different from specific Catholic ones – sometimes contradictory to them; where the laws protect people’s right to divorce, use birth control and even to choose abortion.
    ” In fact, Catholic public officials take an oath to preserve the Constitution that guarantees this freedom. And they do so gladly. Not because they love what others do with their freedom, but because they realize that in guaranteeing freedom for all, they guarantee our right to be Catholics: our right to pray, to use the sacraments to refuse birth control devices, to reject abortion, not to divorce and remarry if we believe it to be wrong.
    ” The Catholic public official lives the political truth most Catholics through most of American history have accepted and insisted on; the truth that to assure our freedom we must allow others the same freedom even if occasionally it produces conduct by them which we would hold to be sinful….”

    Andrew Cuomo, January 17, 2014
    ” If extreme conservatives are right-to-life, pro-assault weapon, anti gay, then they have no place in the State of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”

    What a difference a generation makes.

    Hey Governor Cuomo – I am a proud Tea-Party supporting Conservative Republican, and a life-long New York State resident. Just wanted you to know sir, that we ARE gun-toting, Bible-believing Christians who abhor abortion, and who have come to a much a clearer understanding – under your reign, as to why our Founding Fathers instituted the 2nd Amendment to protect us from a tyrannical government. However, I must tell you sir, we have no plans on being threatened by bullies like you (who have forgotten what the Constitution is), and forced into leaving our homes here in rural New York State.

    Our families have spent their blood, sweat, and tears building Western & Upstate New York — and this country, into a place where we are supposed to be able to be FREE to practice our religion without the fear of mad, power-hungry government dictators imposing their “state” religion upon us.

    So get over yourself Andy – We won’t be giving up our guns because we still believe in the 2nd Amendment, nor will we be abdicating our belief in God & Jesus Christ anytime soon to cower to your hate-filled demands that we fall in line with your hypocritical position (as a guy who is supposedly a Catholic!?) that somehow baby-killing is OK.

    No, Jeff, your reply in referring to “equal rights” makes my point. Glenn refers to gays having the right of free speech and the right to be left alone. But those matters are not at all the subjects of controversy. Indeed, it is GLAAD that has been seeking the silencing of people espousing traditional Judean-Christian morality, not the other way around. It is the demand for so called “equal rights,” i.e. “non-discrimination” against gays, where the controversy lies. Traditional Judean-Christian morality condemns homosexuality as sinful behavior that people right with God do not practice, and one can articulate secular reasons make traditional Judean-Christian moral practice sound social practice. See the book cited in Justice Alito’s DOMA dissent “What Is Marriage?” Creating a protected class in homosexuals raises all sorts of issues, including conflicts with religious liberty.
    I would not say who belongs in New York and who does not based on their beliefs, but Governor Cuomo is — wrongly. If someone is a fascist, it is he. Does Governor Cuomo mean to say that New York has no place for those who believe in the traditional conception of marriage and who hold to traditional Judean-Christian moral belief seeing homosexuality as sinful? If so, Governor Cuomo should say so and make his intolerance plain.

There is nothing about that state that is in any way attractive to me and if the whole place fell into a giant sinkhole, I would not miss it at all. The only thing that I find important about Mr. Cuomo’s attitude is that it might infect other people. If I had the misfortune to have a business in New York, I would waste no time in moving it elsewhere.

    New York State accounted for the biggest migration exodus of any state in the nation between 2000 and 2010, with 3.4 million residents leaving over that period, according to the Tax Foundation. Over that decade the state gained 2.1 million, so net migration amounted to 1.3 million, representing a loss of $45.6 billion in income.

    Now consider that those who have left are the ones who have “made it” economically….that is they are leaving with assets.

    Those who have arrived are seeking to “make it”….but given the obuffoona economy, their chances for economic success have been severely curtailed.

    NOW this cuomo-buffoon comes out with his anti-Conservative spew, vilifying law abiding gun owners, anti-homosexual and anti-abortion people, as he positions himself for a white house run. I thought about making a stand in New York

    The only way the governor would know you were an “extreme Conservative” would be if you protested something. Otherwise it’s kinda doubtful anyone would stop you from going there by making answer a questionnaire or something. And yes, it does seem like states rights. You know the rules Governor Cuomo wants so you don’t have to waste your time getting run out of town or anything.

    anyone who is against a homosexual’s right to live and work in society. Has Cuomo the cohones to confront the Saudi, Iranian or any other Muslim rulers in New York City, telling them they’re not welcome in New York with their beliefs? I dare him!

    Does this include the Amish in the Finger Lakes section of the state? They, after all, are residents of New York. And Conservative to the extreme. Shame on you, Governor.

    One state at a time that is their plan. I just hope the people in NY wake up, but I think most of the 8 million do not even understand what he is. So they will be ruled like sheep until it is too late for them. We in Texas will not let it happen here no one will ever take our right to protect ourselves here. It will take only force from them and that will be a fight to the end. Give Me Liberty or give me Death. That is the only way I will live. I will never live or even go to NY because I am 2 of the 3 for sure. But never will I hate someone for being what God made them into. Just like Glenn said I only judge by what kind of person you are. Not what the Government labels you. Stay strong and free. And the second is going away fast. And if we the people do not see that then we will lose it.

    The irony, of course, of the governor’s statement is, if all the conservatives of that state DID leave, who would be there to work and pay the taxes to support all his liberal, free loading followers?

    Governer Cuomo stepped in it. He does not speak for me and my views. I do not think it is right that a woman has the opportunity under the law to kill her child that is growing inside her Especially right up to the day she gives birth. Because that is what Cuomo believes..I do not believe in abortion enless it is in the case of incest or rape, then I think it is up to the person if she wants to carry the child to term. I personally think that is wrong to do this, but in these extreme cases it is up to the woman. I realize others hold different views on the subject, however, I do not agree with them. You are intitled to your opinion as I am. I believe we all have the right to bare arms. It is written in the constitution. Agree or disagree with this premise, you have the right to your opinion and you do not have the right to infringe on my contitutional rights, I am not anti gay, I don’t think we have the right to redefine marriage. If we do this we have to suffer the consequences of what this will do to society, I don;t believe Gay people should be bullied or picked on, I believe they have a right to work. But I don’t think we shoud be forced to except this as the norm becuase it will have consequences for society as a whole. I hope that Cuomo continues to reveal his true self. I don’t want the voters deceived as to who this guy is when voting ensues. Keep it coming Cuomo. You will sink yourself. You represent all the people don’t forget that. Weather you agree with them or not. I personally hope you sink in your intolerance and I pray you will “not” be elected to another term. Bye Bye

    Yes, there are but that is not what you wrote, sunshine. Glad you can count. Now, tell your buddy, Obama. He still thinks there are 57. Oh, and don’t forget to look up state’s rights. You will find that in the Constitution, you know, that little document your little friend likes to trample on.

  • vener8r

    Whilst I do not share absolutely EVERY belief of every issue with my conservative breathren, it is my pleasure to agree with Mr. Cuomo that we are all indeed extremists. However, only by comparison. And the tipping point is not being unbalanced by anything that we have done. We are still here, as conservative as ever accept that we are finally growing a collective spine and making headway in affecting Washington. The truth of the matter is, that the leftist leadership are the ones tipping the scales of idealogical separatism. Further and further they lean, further left than ever. And, would that not make them look across the chasm and call US extreme? And there are a myriad of those who, in name, should defend us, and do little more than call us names and berate us for being too right. Shame on us for losing our sight and our power to these psudo-conservative charlatans. We are to blame. It is our country, our government, our choice, and we squander it, like the starving given cake. I am extreme, and I am proud of it. If a despot like Cuomo or Emporer Obama call me extreme, I am in a very good place.

  • vener8r

    New York State is an absolutely beautiful state – just as California is. The problem is that NYC, and most large cities, are mostly controlled by liberal progressives – like Cuomo. You can’t condemn the whole state because of the literal “Bad Apple” (pun intended).

    Believe me, “Off Duty” – after fighting “The Wind Farm Scam” (available at Amazon) here in NYS over the past decade (which is nothing but a massive transfer of wealth scheme and giant land grab), Cuomo’s “SAFE” Act, and now him spewing this hate speech, it IS hard to want to stay and fight when it’s NYC politics that are running the show here. But, I’m NOT a quitter! And I’ll be damned if I’m going to let this dictator undermine our Constitutional freedoms without a fight!

    Fear Not, For I am Your God! That should be easy to do and for most of us for the most part it is! Think, don’t buy into this or any hype. No one is kicking down our doors, placing us under arrest because we love freedom, Christ, life, self defense, Yes, our values are being attacked, but are you or those you know closely in some type of physical harm? Do you know of anyone in this still great nation who has been forced to march to a FEMA Camp or has truly lost something or someone they love directly because it or they were taken from them under duress? Our fellow humans are dying everyday in areas of the globe we can’t even imagine living in! Please do not tell me how bad you have it or how fearful you are because of a theory about a plausible future event while hundreds of your fellow humans die daily in places that even our media players won’t ever mention or venture into! So as you sit there at your computer drinking your coffee or having your lunch while at your cushy job that you travel to and from everyday in your personal vehicle or even public transportation having left or to arrive in your home full of heat, food, entertainment and your loved ones I remind you, God is in control, “Fear Not for I am your God! What do you really fear? The loss of all the objects you posses or the lives of your loved ones? The real question is why do you fear anything at all if you are a true believer? Let them look, but be the light, continue to be someone they fear! The tail of this nation is wagging the Dog! Things have been flipped, good is evil, evil is good. Stand up for what you believe in, fear defeats us! “Fear Not!” <…

    “ReformSchool” – I am very well aware of the massive amount of voter fraud that went on (I’ve been a Glenn Beck fan since he was still on CNN). The point is, you can’t generalize that “all New Yorkers voted for him” and thus should be considered in the “same can” as Cuomo – because that is NOT TRUE. I am just one of MANY New York State citizens that have been fighting against the corruption within our political system here in NYS for years. I do know that it is a lot easier for people to throw stones, then it is for them to roll up their sleeves and get involved in the fight, though.

    I said these days there are forty nine OTHER states people can go to instead of the handful there were when the founders were around. In those days there wasn’t as much choice as there is now. If someone didn’t like where they were or were told they would probably be happier living somewhere else ( hopefully when there is such a thing as time travel you won’t go back to the 1770s or earlier, you might be horrified at how strict the laws were and wildly unprepared you’d be for life back then) they either had to move to another state or out to the wilderness or else try and make the best of what they had.. Do try and read the words that got written instead of lookiing through mad. But it seems I hit a nerve, you’re so different on the inside than you are on the outside. Kind of a shame. Here’s another one, though. You say you’re a fan of the Constitution. So please explain how you and other Tea Party people can love a document all about how there needs to be a federal government when at the same time you and other Tea Party people can’t stand the federal government. Both statements cancel each other out. You can’t have both, things don’t work.like that.

    Glenn, you are welcome in New York. Cuomo’s comments do not apply to you. He spoke about “extremists” who are pro-life. You allow for abortion in the cases of rape, incest, and danger to the mother. You and the 52% of Americans you cited are not pro-life. You are pro-choice; and some would say pro-abortion in those cases.
    You can’t be a little pregnant and you can’t be a little pro-life. You either allow the murder of a defenseless, innocent human being, or you stand against that murder. And I can assure you, God does not apply the same caveats and concessions you apply to the abortion issue. God is pro-life. You are not.

    Uh, I think that you’re a little confused. You ARE correct that Christians should not fear the status of the country or where we see it heading from the standpoint of being terrified and cowering. But you yourself said “Stand up for what you believe in, fear defeats us!”. I think Glenn and those on his show are trying to stand up now BEFORE we get to the point where we’re disarmed and marching into the FEMA camps (I don’t believe in those, by the way). Trying to revolt with nothings is MUCH more difficult to achieve than rebelling now while the tools to back it up are still available.

    Maybe we just need to give them exactly what they want! Allow abortion for any reason at any time. Allow gay marriage but ban gay adoption or lesbian insemination and in two generations the liberal mindset will be gone from the nation as it will have killed itself off.

    So if you are a registered Repubican and you agree with the gov, then you can stay in NY state.

    No, they don’t. We do need a federal government, based on the Constitution. There are three separate branches of government, each having its own power. We are not a dictatorship. All three work together to govern, not one with a “pen and a phone”. Our constitution states that any power not expressly given to the federal government is RESERVED TO THE STATES. I don’t lump you in a category with a label. Why do you feel it Necessary to label me as a Tea Partier?
    And the state of NY does not belong to the governor. It belongs to the people. He has no right to tell anyone to leave.

    Sorry about calling you a Tea Party person if you aren’t. You just sounded like you were defending extreme Conservativism by saying that I and all the Obama supporters trash the Constitution. I have no love for that document, I’m a states rights fan. But as a moderate establishment Republican I tend to think people work with the governments that exist. The Constitution was written by people for people of that time. They were still dealing with having been a moneymaking for Britain. As Thomas Jefferson put it, America was supposed to be an experiment in a new way of living. So any document detailing that way of living should be updated every generation to keep up with the people instead of the people trying to fit the rules written on the paper.

    What the governor of New York and the mayor of New York City are doing is following the precedent of obama of invoking the scary basic progressive policy of no such thing as individuals just the elite royal ruling class and the collective of expendable slaves,serfs,zombie what ever you want to call them of the submissive for the good of the royal ruling class and at the mercy of royal elites whims !! A glaring blatant example of progressive policy toward the individual is obama care on how it was put into play !!!!!!!!!! 1.) obama promise utopia medical care ,and got snake oil care at much greater cost and less care with ration care ( it ok to lie to the individuals) while he steal your heath nsurance that you like , at lower cost,and better coverage ( ok to steal from individual or slave with no say on their part) 2.) You know what in the bill when it pass to keep individual citizens in the dark ( denied individual to discuss,debate ,vote and to make a choice for themselves 3.) What obama and ruling elite like N.Y governor and mayor implying that individual cannot not think for themselves or make decisions, should have individual freedom,not given right to make choices for themselves only the royal annointed should have this power ,to dictate how someone should live,make decision for their slave or serfs for the good of their slave collective population and to stamp out individuals !!!! God made us individual with inalienable rights !!! It the greed of men to have power of control over others making them cogs in a collective in not being individuals and to serve the royal elite !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We must all say no to this basic progressive policy of stamping out individuals and their freedom !!!!!!!!!

    Extremism shouldn’t even be sitting in any governmentally controlled seat, especially if its one’s own governorship. Most of all, not all of New York (state wide), aren’t all left. Every single state in the United States have their share of right and left and to have someone like Cuomo go off the deep end and say what he said, the people have every right to prove him wrong or prove him that he is more extreme than some of the people in his own state. Not all New Yorkers are liberals and democrats, not all of California are democrat, not all Texans are right, not all Arkansans are right or conservative. Every state has its own set of yin/yang principles. You always here this everywhere you go: “not everybody is whom they seem to be.”
    So, you kind of got to look at the code behind what Cuomo said and hear it this way: you can still be a New Yorker, just don’t sound, talk or act like a conservative.
    He likes how they look but he despises how they talk and how they live.
    He’s become his own Obama. There are certain people he likes and there are those that he doesn’t. In Star Wars talk, every state have their share of Jedi and Sith.

    Which is worse? A Governor with a big waistline who supposedly caused a major traffic jam ( and who probably likes jam…with some peanut butter ) or a Governor with a bigger mouth who is trying to cause a mass exodus from his state. The Governor with a name like a rabid Saint Bernard in a lifeless, catatonic state is the one who needs to brush up on his Constitution. Cuomo is the true “hater” here who is obviously very INtolerant of people of devout religious faith and who strongly believe in their Constitutional RIGHTS. Maybe he should take his marxist views to Venezuala or North Korea or Iran. What he’s saying is the equivalent ( only a lot worse ) of what President Vladimir Putin is being accused of regarding “gays” in Russia.
