Cuomo: 'Extreme Conservatives,' Pro-Lifers Not Welcome in NY


If anti-abortion activists thought those 35 feet ‘buffer zones’ currently in place around abortion clinics were restrictive, wait until they hear the boundary New York Governor Andrew Cuomo wants to draw for them. Calling into “The Capitol Pressroom” radio show Friday morning, the liberal leader made it clear just what he thinks about conservatives and pro-lifers:

“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’s comments perhaps come as no surprise to those familiar with his proposed Women’s Equality Act – legislation which works opposite its title thanks to its radical abortion agenda. Although the measure was defeated last year, Cuomo, in his fourth State of the State address, declared he was determined to try again in 2014.

    Son of Sfachime, what more can you expect.

    I think conservatives should leave new York and take their tax dollars with them. Let the liberals from the city work the farms.

    I’m still waiting to see a weapon assault someone. Until that happens, there are no assault weapons.

      I know some very nice, conservative, normal New Yorkers. I, too, wish they would pack up and be part of a swap for some of the loonies we have in Eastern Virginia. According to cuomo, everyone should then be happy.

      When I was about twelve years old, my Remington Speedmaster with a 17 round tube feed(assault weapon??) just jumped out of my hands and assaulted a no trespassing sign. I got it under control and reprimanded it profusely. It hasn’t done that since.

    • Washington22 says:

      This reminds me of Rham Emmanuel in Chicago and his assertions and comments. It gained him a lot of bad publicity and Cuomo will get the same and worse because he is Governor, not just a wimpy mayor. Coumo is and idiot, out spoken without common sense, a very bad mix.

  3. DougSter says:

    So, New York doesn’t want any pro-lifers? That means they prefer and welcome pro-deathers. That’s great – being pro-death is a self correcting problem!

    I intend to do my bit. I don’t live in New York so I can’t move out. But I can certainly avoid going to New York for entertainment. I’ll spend my money in friendlier states. And there are many friendlier states to choose from. Thanks Andrew. Enjoy your deadbeat liberal buddies.

    ANYONE NOT PRO LIFE, PRO GUN, PRO TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE, SMALL GOVERNMENT, CONSTITUTIONALISTS, AND FREE MARKET ARE NOT CONSERVATIVES AT ALL. EXTREME IS ONLY WHAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN WE THE PEOPLE DECIDE TO STAND UP AND PREVENT THIS NATION FROM BEING TURNED IN TO A THIRD WORLD DICTATORSHIP.
    RUN OUT THE CONSERVATIVES THEN ALL YOU WILL HAVE LEFT IS ANTI-LIFE, ANTI-LEGAL GUNS, FUDGE PACKING, DICTATORIAL GOVERNMENT, LAWLESSNESS, NANNY STATE TAKERS WITH NO ONE TO PAY THE WAY FOR THEM. TRUST ME, IT WILL NOT TAKE LONG FOR THEM TO GET OUT OF CONTROL AND RADICAL PLUS.

    New York, the City of Death! Great Slogan! I have never been there and never plan on going there so he doesn’t have to worry about my Pro-Life Butt corrupting his progressive pile of crap lefties!

    My church youth group is planning two mission trips: one to El Salvadore, the other to…..New York City. How appropriate, land of the lost.

  8. Wiseoldlady says:

    You coumo are very very rude, indignant, and vile. Who the hell do you think you are…does not matter how much money any one has or which college you attended…it is about decency…you have NONE. History proves it is always hate filled dilutional maniacs like you that cause decay. Liberals are sick…they are the extremist…the weird dos, the psychopaths. The kool aid drinkers, the indoctrinated, the ignorant, the gullible, war mongrels, drug users, spoiled brats, rebellious, immoral….guess that is how you want NY…full of a bunch of fools you can push around. Please get some mental help…you need it. I SUGGEST ALL NEW YORKERS BOYCOTT THIS MORON. When he goes to a restaurant DONT serve him…or make him wait twice as long…you get the picture. Do you care if you loose his business.

  9. chuck selander says:

    Well, it is interesting–I remember that in Germany in the thirties and early forties that there was expressed a similar thing against a certain part of society–”not welcome”. And the results??

  10. JT says:

    Yep, All the Conservatives should leave NY, let the liberals have all the control! just like Chicago and Detroit! They CAN’T blame ANY Conservatives for their mess, since NONE have been in power for years!

  11. JOE says:

    So only gay , gang bangers that are extreme liberal and pro death are allowed in NY ?
