Skip to comments.Escalation: After Cuomo's 'No Place in New York' Remarks, His Counsel Reminds the New York Post
Posted on 01/22/2014 9:24:45 AM PST by Nachum
On Friday, as I noted on Saturday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo told public radio's Susan Arbetter that "extreme conservatives" that is, people who are pro-life, understand the clear meaning of the Second Amendment, or wish to keep marriage as it has traditionally been defined "have no place in the state of New York, because thats not who New Yorkers are." Note well that Cuomo's remarks are still not news at the Associated Press's national site.
On Sunday, Cuomo's people sent and released an "open letter" containing a very inaccurate transcription of the original interview accusing the New York Post's Aaron Short of being "entirely reckless with facts and the truth" in his report ("Gov. Cuomo to conservatives: Leave NY!"). As I demonstrated on Monday, the only reasonable interpretation of what Cuomo said is that Republican Party members who hold any one of the three positions noted in the previous paragraph "have no place in the state of New York." In the past several days, the matter has escalated. The Post has continued to cover the story that's what newspapers are supposed to do while, in an extraordinary move, the Counsel to the Governor has entered the fray with what can only be interpreted as threatening language.

After much reflection and due consideration we would like to take this moment to let you know how much we appreciate your style, wit, and complete lack of self restraint. Keep it up. You make excellent writing material.
The editors of the New York Post....
My husband and I WERE going to go to NY and the Hamptons this summer, but not now we aren’t.
I’d visit New York if they held a tar and feathering party for Cuomo which culminated in riding him out of Albany on a rail.
Who you gonna believe, Cuomo or your lying ears?
The first response of liberals when they put their foot in their mouths is to threaten those who call them on their stupidity.
I thank God every day that I do not have to live in the northeastern part of this country.
The LA media market has lately been bombarded with advertising stating that if you bring your business to NY it would be able to operate tax free for 10 years.
Yeah. Invest millions on the words of a sleazoids who’ll end up stealing it.
Im remembering this image of this angry little German man with an odd mustache telling Jews to leave Germany or there would be problems for them. Somehow they were not worthy of living in Germany?
Sounds like an ad campaign begging for a response no?
The absolutely wonderful irony of Cuomo’s statements are that in the end, it will be Che de Blasio who will end up battling, and causing the most problems for him. The big progressives who run crony-capitalist Wall Street and NY State’s one-party, Democrat government cleared the path for their junior, upstart, bratty communist cousin to find a way into Gracie Mansion in NY City. Now they will have to deal with him.
21 days into the new People’s Republic of NY City and de Blasio and Cuomo are already on a collision course over taxes, Pre-K, snow-plowing and the “war on the rich.” Any problems in NY City, especially financial, will be felt in Albany, and no doubt the Post will not let him forget it - and Cuomo will not be pleased.
Let’s hope they both lose.
Any person who is forced out of New York by Cuomo will come to realize, eventually, that Cuomo did him a huge favor.

SAMPLE COMMENT Kudos to Aaron Short-—his Cuomo story was great journalism-—the type we expect from a top shelf newspaper like the NY Post.
Let Cuomo’s office know!
The biggest insult is to all the NYers, especially the non-NYC, who are NOT liberals. it insults them both by the fact they are not liberal, and that they aren’t the big city people which some NYers seem to think is all there is to NY state.
Same here in Austin. What a waste of money - as if any thinking, successful person would move their company from Austin to the socialist utopia of NY! Laughable!
Actually, aside from reflecting Cuomo’s true feelings, I think his statements were meant to boost his creds with the Che de Blasio wing of the Dem party, which seems to have taken over the party. He’s telling them that he may have a few more modest ideas on income redistribution and confiscatory taxes, but not to worry: he hates those “right-to-life, pro-assault weapon, anti-gay” GOPers just as much as de Blasio does.
BTW, he didn’t even say “anti-abortion,” which is what he keeps trying to make people believe now, but “right-to-life” as a term of condemnation.
This is what it took? New Yorkers aren't any different now than they were before he made those remarks. In fact the majority are exactly as he described them. I long ago vowed never to spend any funds in NY or any of the other northeastern police states.
But if they leave NY, who will pay the exorbitant taxes?
The LA media market has lately been bombarded with advertising...”
Watching weather on one of the local stations in Houston last night and noticed the same ads. Trying to get even with Perry for soliciting companies to move to Texas?
Wonder how the idiot governor would react to an alternative to Wall Street springing up in another state and taking all that cash and tax money with it?
More likely just enriching the Texas media market.
It has long been a lotto dream of mine to find some nice rural town in the eastern time zone such as Beckley, West Virginia or Pigeon Forge, Tennessee who would let me build a giant cow on their main square, hold a media event around it every New Year’s Eve where country and patriotic singers gather to perform and, as the stroke of midnight approaches, the cow lifts her tail and drops a giant plop on a replica model of New York’s Times Square to ring in the New Year.
More likely just enriching the Texas media market.”
You’re likely right about that being the end result. Several of the people in the neighborhood are from the east coast and love being in Texas. There is one gal who hates being down there though. Seems she thinks we talk funny, eat weird food, are obsessed with guns and just totally uneducated bumpkins. She told her husband she’s moving back to New York with or without him this summer. Suspect it will be without him. He seems to fit right in, has a great job, got his permit to carry, just bought his third gun and is going hunting with some of the guys in the neighborhood this fall. Pretty funny...
New York is where I’d rather stay
I get allergic smelling hay
I just adore a penthouse view
I love u darling but give me park avenue
I love u darling but give me park avenue...”
Fits her too a tee - but I’m not sure she loves anyone but herself.
I’m sure I probably watched this very episode. We didn’t miss any that I recall. So fitting for this neighborhood couple. Remember that we had one of our regular monthly neighborhood cookouts one weekend last year. My grandson showed up with some cotton he had picked. The female neighbor was simply amazed when she saw it as she did not realize that cotton grew in the fields. Of course all the natives laughed at her.
