The tolerant left strikes again…
Governor Anthony Cuomo, a New York Democrat, told conservative New Yorkers to leave get out.
In an interview with WCNY Cuomo said:
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.
Here’s the audio:
Today Governor Cuomo denied he told pro-life conservatives to leave the state of New York.
The Blaze reported:
The office of Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) in an open letter to the New York Post claimed he never said “conservatives should leave New York,” adding that his words were taken entirely out of context.
“The New York Post distorted Governor Cuomo’s words yesterday, saying that the Governor said ‘conservatives should leave New York,’” Cuomo’s office said in a statement. “The Governor did not say that, nor does he believe that.”
The statement is in response to controversy surrounding a radio interview Cuomo gave Friday morning to WCNY’s Susan Arbetter.
Cuomo’s office noted that he said in the interview that “it is fine” to oppose gun control measures and to be anti-abortion, adding that “he respects both positions.”
