Last week Andrew Cuomo opened his mouth to talk about his feelings in regards to Conservatives...
“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.”
Being that these beliefs describe almost all Conservatives, and are actually not the slightest bit extreme, Conservatives responded with predictable outrage.
"Pro-assault-weapon" simply means you support the Second Amendment's original purpose; to balance the power of government that also has "assault weapons." Is Andy giving up New York's assault weapons? Didn't think so.
"Right-to-life" describes the majority of Conservatives and Christians. Andy himself claims to be Catholic. Guess he's talking about himself here? No, he must be talking about the people who go to Mass for other than political reasons.
"Anti-gay?" Don't even know what this means anymore because I haven't seen Conservatives protest gays in my lifetime. I have seen opposition to the gay agenda which includes forced acceptance of behavior, suppression of free speech/religious freedom, and the forced sexualization of children. Yes, some people are opposed to that and judging by the latest Duck Dynasty saga, it's not extreme either.
But Conservatives missed the real take-away from the horse's own mouth... What does a tyrant like Cuomo do with people who have "no place?" Accepting Cuomo's words at face value, he has a real problem on his hands with people who don't belong. Some of those people already live in New York State. Should they be forced to leave? What if they refuse? Maybe they should be rounded up so they can't cause anymore trouble?
Keep in mind, Cuomo is not a Chrissie-Matthews-political-pundit-type-commentator. He doesn't have a show on MSNBC. He is the governor of New York. His words aren't just political musings, they represent his office, it's authority, and it's intentions.
It's no coincidence, as with all tyrants, that Cuomo recently disarmed the people of New York State with the NYSAFE Act. Less than a year later, he can freely telegraph these intentions because the people he is targeting are now sufficiently disarmed. He, his agents, and the Liberals who would happily cheer an American genocide can act with impunity.
The laws? Well, they make the laws. And since the Constitution is now null-and-void, there is nothing protecting your right to life (ironic, no?) or your right to live in a state in which you don't belong.
If you're outraged, you're doing it wrong! Look beyond the words and understand the ideas. Every mass murderer in history has marginalized people, de-humanized them, declared them a common enemy, and then offered a resolution to the problem. Andrew Cuomo is no different.
Think my tinfoil is too tight?
