Cuomo: Conservatives “Have No Place” In New York

On the Statue of Liberty, New York’s historic gateway to America, a plaque reads “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free…just don’t give me your conservatives.” Or at least that’s what it would say if New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) had written it given his recent remarks that conservatives are not welcome in New York.

Cuomo - Conservatives Have No Place In New York

In a recent radio appearance Gov. Cuomo discussed the divisions within the Republican Party and asked:

“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.”
