DAILYKENN.com -- The governor of New York recently wrote, "...they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are."
Think of the governor's comments as a contemporary Edict of Expulsion.
Who are being expelled? Jews? Evangelicals? Illegal aliens?
The governor was referring to individuals he describes as extreme conservatives, "right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay."
Oddly, New York City is listed as a sanctuary city for illegal aliens as are other state jurisdictions including five counties. Illegal aliens are welcome and afforded privileged protection. Citizens who adhere to traditional morals are not welcome. "That's not who New Yorkers are."
It reminds us of 1492. That's when Jews were expelled from Spain because 'that's not who Spaniards were.' Christopher Columbus set sail from Spain on August 3 of that year. The day prior, August 2, was the deadline for all Jews to leave Spain under the Edict of Expulsion. [source]
The governor's Edict of Explusion seems to be working. According to New York Business Journal correspondent Heather Hartel, "New York is top in the U.S. in terms of its residents leaving for other states. In 2015, New York had a population of 19.5 million. By 2016 (the latest year available), it shrank to about 19.3 million, resulting in a net drop of 186,000 people." [source]
So what are lefists in New York up to? It appears they urging conservatives to leave and encouraging illegal aliens (who overwhelming support far-left Democrats) to enter. It appears to be a political ploy to assure far-left Democrats will have a secure grip on the state's government.
Conservatives aren't the only persons unwelcome in New York. Cuomo signed legislation this will that allows non-physicians to kill pre-born babies until birth.
Today New York State Senate passed the Reproductive Health Act which redefines person as“a human being who has been born and is alive” and which permits abortion in some cases to birth!— Obianuju Ekeocha (@obianuju) January 22, 2019

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is already notorious among pro-lifers for being one of the most pro-abortion politicians in the nation. The state he serves already has one of the highest abortion rates in the country, but he has been continually fighting to make abortion even more widespread and commonplace in New York.
Now, the abortion extremist is taken it even farther, publicly proclaiming on the Capitol Pressroom that pro-lifers are not welcome to live in New York.
You have a schism within the Republican Party. … They’re searching to define their soul, that’s what’s going on. Is the Republican party in this state a moderate party or is it an extreme conservative party? That’s what they’re trying to figure out. It’s a mirror of what’s going on in Washington. The gridlock in Washington is less about Democrats and Republicans. It’s more about extreme Republicans versus moderate Republicans.
… You’re seeing that play out in New York. … The Republican Party candidates are running against the SAFE Act — it was voted for by moderate Republicans who run the Senate! 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.
Last year, Governor Cuomo made it clear that he wants New York to be the abortion capital of the world. New York’s abortion rate statewide is already almost twice as high as the national average, and in New York City, it’s even worse. Cuomo’s Women’s Equality Act, opposed by the majority of New Yorkers, was defeated last year, but Cuomo has sworn to try to get it passed again in 2014.
That Andrew Cuomo wants there to be more abortions in New York isn’t a surprise to anyone. That he is so extreme as to say that pro-lifers shouldn’t even be able to live in his state, simply for believing in the sanctity of life, is truly shocking. To him, evidently it’s not good enough for abortion to just be legal and widespread – he thinks that pro-lifers should be not only silenced, but kicked out of the state.
It’s despicable and disturbing. And while pro-lifers are used to abortion advocates attempting to have them silenced, this takes it to an entirely new and sickening level.
