The political world is still buzzing over the incendiary comments New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo made regarding his views on Republicans, more specifically, conservatives.
Even dyed-in-the-wool New Yorker Sean Hannity said he would make plans to leave his state. Something I thought he would never do or even say. Good for Sean.
Now I don’t know if Andrew Cuomo really believes the things he said or whether he simply sees the final transformation of the Democratic Party into the Communist Party via New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio? It may be a calculated attempt to shift way left. Who knows – who cares? He said what he said and there’s really no walking it back.
It’s funny, though, with all the problems plaguing his state and the country, he and the rest of the leftists insist on blaming conservatives for ruining the country. We are why the country is falling apart. It certainly couldn’t be the combination of almost 200 years of rotten, fascist, racist Democrat policies. Whatever do I mean, you ask?
I mean just this. Look back in history and be reminded that virtually every bad policy, every ruinous decision, every unconstitutional law or mandate was the handiwork of a Democrat.
Look back at the “father” of the Democrat party, King Andrew Jackson. Oh yes, Obama isn’t the first president who fancied himself a monarch. Jackson was also quite often called a dictator. He believed in “Manifest Destiny,” the evil opposite of “Divine Providence.” He pushed for and got passed his “Indian removal act,” or ethnic cleansing act, which basically led to the extermination and/or removal of all Indian tribes east of the Mississippi.
That, of course, led to the infamous “Trail of Tears” march, thanks to the next Democrat up and hand-picked Jackson successor, Martin Van Buren. In 1839 Van Buren also allowed for the near extermination of the Mormons in Missouri. It was called the “Mormon War” and Van Buren just allowed it to happen due to his fear of losing votes in Missouri. That’s character, eh?
Next up is Woodrow Wilson, and until recently I considered him to be the worst, most evil president in American history. I predict Obama will surpass him or maybe it will be a number 1 and 1A thing.
Wilson was a vile racist, fascist, and eugenicist. A historian wrote that he “love, craved and in a sense, glorified power.” Sound like somebody we know?
He brought us the income tax. He flung us headlong into World War I to satisfy his own warped, selfish need for power. He re-segregated the American military. He imprisoned American citizens and journalists. He gave us the United Nations with his “League of Nations.”
Next up – Franklin Roosevelt – god of the left. Where to begin with him? Roosevelt gave us the “New Deal,” which we are still paying for. He turned a worldwide depression into a uniquely American “Great Depression.” He put forth the socialist dream “Second Bill of Rights.”
He imprisoned hundreds of thousands of Americans of Japanese, German, and Italian descent. Even many Democrats realized he had to go prior to his death. It was because of Roosevelt that both Democrats and Republicans passed the 22nd Amendment limiting the president to two terms.
And then there was Lyndon Baines Johnson – LBJ – Father of the modern day radical leftist. He gave us the “Great Society.” It marked the beginning of the end of personal responsibility, freedom, and liberty and the dawn of the entitlement society. It was he who actually began the slow ruination of American healthcare with Medicare and Medicaid.
After LBJ, and other than Ronald Reagan, virtually all modern-day presidents have been, to some degree, progressives. Whether on a bullet train or a slow roll, they have all worsened and weakened the American experience, possibly to the point of no return.
So when Andrew Cuomo says idiotic things about conservatives being the problem, he had best go back and review history.
