Cuomo Expels Those Who Have No Place In New York By Richard Cooper

Cuomo Expels Those Who Have No Place In New York

New York locations.  April 1, 2015

After his re-election, Governor Cuomo has taken action against those he deemed extremists.  In January 2014, he told Susan Arbetter of The Capitol Pressroom that “extreme conservatives” should leave New York.

In compliance with his orders and the Democrat-controlled legislature elected in November 2014 Tea Party “extreme conservatives” are fleeing to the South and West.  A group of Long Islanders, waiting to cross the Verrazano Narrows bridge began singing “Massapequa, Massapequa” to the tune of “Anatevka, Anatevka” from Fiddler On The Roof. 

For more than a century the Adirondack Park has been declared “forever wild.”   Governor Cuomo cites as a benefit of the expulsion of the extreme conservatives that with the depopulation of upstate New York, the Adirondack Park will now be enlarged to include Columbia, Delaware, Fulton, Greene, Hamilton, Montgomery, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, Schoharie, Warren, Washington, Cayuga, Chenango, Cortland, Herkimer, Madison, Oneida, Oswego, Otsego, Onondaga, Tioga, Chemung, Livingston, Ontario, Schuyler, Seneca, Steuben, Wayne, Yates, Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chatutauqua, Genesee, Niagara, Orleans, Wyoming, Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Jefferson, Lewis, St. Lawrence counties.  In other words, most of the upstate counties beyond the MTA region.

Libertarians went north and east to New Hampshire to join the Free State project.

Those to the left of the Governor such as the Occupy movement were given the boot as well, heading to the People’s Republics of Vermont and Massachusetts. 

Both pro-frackers and anti-frackers were declared extremists by the new legislative committees on Extremist Activities.  Speaker Silver said “They should wait until the Governor decides to know how they should protest in his support.”

Moses said to Pharaoh, “Let my people go.”  Pharaoh Cuomo said “Let the extremists go where they belong.”
