Gov. Andrew Cuomo says gun-loving pro-lifers not welcome in New York, right explodes

New-York-Governor-Andrew-CuomoRight-wing media figures of all stripes are outraged that New York Gov. Chris Cuomo (D) said that New York state is no place for “extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay” Republicans.

“(T)hey have no place in the state of New York,” the governor said, “because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”

The Albany Times-Union reported that Cuomo was speaking to Susan Arbetter on the New York Public Broadcasting radio show “The Capitol Pressroom.”

The National Review’s Kathryn Jean Lopez interpreted Cuomo’s statements to mean anyone who opposes abortion. In a column titled “Pro-Life? Not Welcome in Andrew Cuomo’s New York,” she lamented that people who want do deny a woman’s right to choose are, as ever, being unfairly persecuted.

She called Cuomo an agent of “the culture of death” and bemoaned New York’s “miserable [sic] high occurrences of the grave, irreversible misery” of abortion.

CNN conservative commentator S. E. Cupp took to Twitter to denounce the governor:

The conversation with Arbetter was about the current schism in the GOP between moderate Republicans and Tea Party extremists.

“Is the Republican party in this state a moderate party or is it an extreme conservative party?” he asked. “That’s what they’re trying to figure out. It’s a mirror of what’s going on in Washington. The gridlock in Washington is less about Democrats and Republicans. It’s more about extreme Republicans versus moderate Republicans.” called the governor’s remarks “condescending” and demanded to know how liberals would feel if conservative governors made similar remarks about liberals.

The website’s Cortney O’Brien urged readers not to be “soft on Cuomo.”

“We should be attacking his comments,” she said, “which alienated a large bloc of voters, just as much as the left jumped all over Romney’s ‘47 percent’ gaffe.”

    Now that the anti-science, superstition-based initiative presidency ends, we need several public works science Manhattan projects to make us great again and boost us out of this Grotesque Depression. First we must provide free advertising-based wireless internet to everyone to end land line monopolies. Then we must criscross the land with high speed rail. Because bovine flatulence is the major source of greenhouse gases, we must develop home growable microbes to provide all of our protein. Then we must create microbes which turn our sewage and waste into fuel right at home. This will end energy monopoly by putting fuel in our hands. We must address that most illness starts from behavior, especially from parents. Since paranoid schizophrenia is the cause of racism, bigotry, homelessness, terrorism, ignorance, exploitation and criminality, we must provide put the appropriate medications, like lithium, in the water supply and require dangerous wingnuts who refuse free mental health care to be implanted with drug release devices. CHurches should be licensed to reduce supersition and all clergy dealing with small children should be psychiatrically monitored to prevent molesting. Osama bin Laden and Timothy McVeigh were the ultimate superstition based initiatives. Widen navigation straits (Gibraltar, Suez, Malacca, Danube, Panama and Hellspont) with deep nukes to prevent war. In order to fund this we must nationalize the entire financial, electrical and transportation system and extinguish the silly feudal notion that each industry should be regulated by its peers. Technology mandates a transformation of tax subsidies from feudal forecloseable debt to risk sharing equity. Real estate and insurance, the engines of feudalism, must be brought under the Federal Reserve so we may replace all buildings with hazardous materials to provide public works. Insects, flooding and fire spread asbestos, lead and mold which prematurely disables the disadvantaged. Disposable manufactured housing assures children are not prematurely disabled and disadvantaged. Because feudalism is the threat to progress everywhere, we must abolish large land holdings by farmers, foresters or religions and instead make all such large landholding part of the forest service so our trees may diminish greenhouse gases. We must abolish executive pay and make sure all employees in a company are all paid equally. We must abolish this exploitative idea of trade and monopoly and make every manufactured disposable cottage self sufficient through the microbes we invent.
