Cuomo isn’t the disease, Cuomo is a symptom — some call it “being liberal” – others say “progressive” – still others only say “Democrat”
A CALL TO ARMS — The New York State Republican Party needs a New York State Republican Militia — and the National Republican Party needs an NRA (National Republican Army)
It was widely reported yesterday and Friday that New York’s Governor made some very noxious remarks for widespread distribution. The Blaze put the story out there like this: “New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a radio interview that if ‘extreme conservatives’ are ‘right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay,’ then ‘they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are’.... ‘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 if they are the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are’.” (See “NEW YORK GOV. ANDREW CUOMO: SOME CONSERVATIVES ‘HAVE NO PLACE IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK’ by Dave Urbanski, 1/18/14, The Blaze [http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/01/18/andrew-cuomo-if-extreme-conservatives-are-right-to-life-pro-assault-weapon-anti-gay-then-they-have-no-place-in-the-state-of-new-york/]).
The NY Governor made his remarks during a radio interview with Susan Arbetter on “The Capitol Pressroom” Friday morning; and Cuomo made his controversial statementss in the context of what he chose to portray as a “schism” between moderate and “extreme conservative” Republicans both in New York state and around the country. However, Cuomo’s most ominous quote was not as widely reported as some of the lines that did make the headlines.
The Governor’s statements about conservative Republicans were obnoxious enough, but Cuomo underlined his mail-fisted posturing by telling conservatives to “figure out if your extreme conservative philosophy can survive in this state and the answer is no.” He didn’t ask if we thought the conservative philosophy would “flourish” or “succeed” — Cuomo was asking us to think about whether conservatives and their conservative philosophy would “survive” anywhere in New York.
Too many will focus only on Andrew Cuomo and the fact that he made these remarks at this time. True social conservatives know that the recent comments are just a reflection of a socio-political pathology that has plunged this country in a culture war that is multi-generational. Alien (un-American) notions that were pushed by the Comintern in the 30s, 40s and 50s were adopted by Democrats who called themselves “liberals” in the 50s and 60s, and lately they have posed as “progressives” so as to submerge, blend-in and become confused with a more traditional brand of Americans from early in the 20th Century. Cuomo is symptomatic of the pathology, he isn’t the pathology itself. By whatever name it goes, this pathology is a disease that needs to be battled just like Cancer, TB, Small Pox or AIDS. Certainly in needs to be battled by all conservative Republicans — by whatever means are available, locally, statewide and nationally.
That part of what the so-called “Democrat” Cuomo said that addressed the survival of conservative Republicans in New York was nothing less than a thinly veiled threat of persecution, prosecution, and yes, even execution. It would have made any Fascist, Nazi or Commie thug proud in any one of their Twentieth Century European, Asian, African or New World regimes.
For any proud American patriot, who happens to be a conservative Republican living in New York, this should be seen as more than a thuggish threat or alarming hyperbole — it should be seen and heard as an actual ALARM. Look at the coverage of Andrew Cuomo’s statements in The Blaze — see the whole context of the article — read some of the hundreds of comments that followed; and ask yourself this: “Is this moment in history a personal CALL TO ARMS ?”
There are countless firearms — pistols, shotguns, rifles, carbines and others — that are still legal to obtain and own in New York State, even with the NYS S.A.F.E. law on the books. All conservative Republicans need ask themselves if they need to arm themselves for their own good and survival. That would certainly not be what Andrew Cuomo wants you to “take away” from his radio interview — but who cares what he thinks. Imagine if gun purchases soared even more since he made his remarks on Friday than they did after passage of his anti-gun laws.
Maybe, Andrew Cuomo needs to think about this again. Remarks like the ones that he made on Friday, are exactly what might lead the extremist conservative Republicans to push the New York State Republican Party to sponsor a New York State Republican Militia. — And then, who knows, maybe the National Republican Party might see it as its historic mission to establish a National Republican Army (NRA) in the 21st Century. Now, there’s a couple of ideas that need to be explored....
