Skip to comments.Our Rebuttal? (Andrew Cuomo shocks crowd, says America 'was never that great') - Vanity
Posted on 08/15/2018 5:00:37 PM PDT by Teacher317
NY Gov Coumo was just the most recent Lefty to say "America isn't Great". We should have a long list proving otherwise, handy for all to post on Social Media in response when this foolish notion is pushed.
If we don't get 100 items in a list within a day, I'll be sorely disappointed in FR!!!
The Marshall Plan clearly has proven to be a massive global upgrade from the Treaty of Versailles and the habit of punishing the defeated.
Penicillin and numerous other vaccines have saved untold lives across the globe.
Open Heart Surgery and organ transplants have saved untold lives across the globe.
Medical charity (Red Cross, Salvation Army, Doctors without Borders, etc etc etc) have saved untold lives across the globe.
Air conditioning has saved untold lives across the globe.
Electricity and the light bulb changed the face of the earth.
The telephone changed the face of the earth.
Aviation changed the face of the earth (and English remains the official language of all international air travel ).
The cell phone changed the face of the earth.
20. The internet is the greatest repository of knowledge ever known, and is accessible by even the poor in most of the world.
No nation has given more wealth to charity in the history of the planet.
Capitalism turned an economy that was on par with Belgium into the biggest engine for wealth creation in thee history of mankind.
22 isn't a bad start... keep it rolling!!!
The greatest gift ever to mankind - a direct consequence of the Judaeo/Christian religion.
America has the greatest Industrial might in the World.
When I hear someone say that ‘America was never great’ my response is always “Compared to what?”
They usually don’t have an answer ready.
We have the right to home school if we so choose, so as to avoid indoctrination and useless information in those prisons called public schools.
Not every country affords parents that option. Maybe most do not. The USA can be proud of that.
We walked on the moon
Its liberals like Cuomo who dont measure up and whose insecurity makes them attack greatness.
Don’t need to preach to the choir. Just hope they run on this theme.
23. Everyone wants to come here, legally or illegally. If it wasn’t so great, why would they try?
[We walked on the moon]
Well, now, Telly Savalas, Sam Waterston, O.J. Simpson, James Brolin and Elliot Gould would have told you differently.....well, about Mars, that is.....
We mopped up the tyrants in two world wars and re-built everything that was destroyed in the process. All accomplished by “The Greatest Generation!!!”
This man has a political tin ear, and a understanding of America and its history that no one could envy.
When the President speaks about making America great again - going back in time - he ignores the pain so many endured and that we suffered from slavery, discrimination, segregation, sexism and marginalized womens contributions,
Cuomo guarantees that his definition of equality may never be realized, because he does not define his version of equality. Does he mean equality of opportunity, or equality of outcome? The first we have always striven for, the second is obviously impossible and therefore ridiculous.
Add to that, he seems to require that we somehow equalize history, or revise it, by somehow redressing it with some sort of punishment of America and Americans. They used to call that process affirmative action, which was never an accurate term.
Better term might have been political racial pandering or false demagogic promise-making. The result of decades of this kind of political fraud, is the political correctness and identity politics we have suffered under when the Democrats were in power.
Finally, Cuomos criticism ignores all the efforts by so many Americans to create a reality out of equality of opportunity, like the Civil War, all the positive constitutional amendments to date, etc, etc. etc. He wishes to pretend that Utopia will somehow descend upon us all, someday, somehow, certainly under his reign. And New York will lead the way? The Democrats have destroyed every municipality they have ever governed. Maybe that is what he is so impatient to see be overcome, eh?
Did Cuomo hire Obama’s Clarification Team ?
By the way... Isn’t the crackpot that said this the son of legal Italian immigrants who struggled to become CITIZENS of a country he now thinks “was never that great??? I wonder why we should even respond to this knucklehead... He’s as Ignorant as one of those poor rare and endangered Sucker fish in the lake at Klamath Falls, OR!!!
23. We landed men and cars on the moon, because we could, and because humans needed to go there.
We haven’t claimed it as territory of the U.S..
Of course! Venezuela and Cuba are great you peasants!
Cars! On the moon! That right there is the only thing you really need to prove that the USA is far and away the greatest nation in the history of mankind! Well, that and the bacon double-cheeseburger...
F’in commie POS.
If he refuses to do it, he must hate brown people since he is OK with them coming to a country that is mediocre, not great. Instead, he should give them a list of great countries that they should go to. Then he should go to one of those great countries and stay there.
