Was Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) being honest when he said America “was never that great.”
Mara Gay, a member of the far-left New York Times editorial board, believes Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) was being honest when he said America “was never that great.” She also agrees with the sentiment.
During a speech before supporters Wednesday, Cuomo was very clear about why he does not believe America has ever been great.
After criticizing President Trump’s “Make America Great” slogan, Cuomo laid out his reasoning.
“We’re not going to make America great again. It was never that great,” he said, as his supporters laughed and gasped.
“We have not reached greatness, we will reach greatness when every American is fully engaged. We will reach greatness when discrimination and stereotyping against women, 51 percent of our population, is gone,” he added. “…and every woman’s full potential is realized and unleashed and every woman is making her full contribution.”
From the sounds of it, Cuomo was pandering to women because he is in primary race with Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon, who he is obviously worried about.
Later, though, through his office, Cuomo backed down.
“The Governor believes America is great and that her full greatness will be fully realized when every man, woman, and child has full equality. America has not yet reached its maximum potential,” a Cuomo spokesperson said.
Gay, however, is not buying Cuomo’s backtrack. She believes he said what he meant and meant what he said.
“Baffled by the assumption Cuomo’s America was ‘never that great’ remarks were a gaffe,” Gay tweeted Friday morning.
Sally Goldenberg, a senior reporter at the far-left Politico agreed. “I agree!” she tweeted, adding, “It’s also a bold (and risky) statement that a lot of other Dems aren’t willing to make. And he’s got a very high-profile challenge on the left he appears to be concerned about. Seems uncomplicated.”
Someone added that Cuomo’s “not great” statement reminded him of what former First Lady Michelle Obama said on the 2008 campaign trail about being “proud of my country for the first time.”
Here is the problem with all this left wing pandering and intellectual materbating to each other under the guise of meaningful discussion. America has been so far superior to other countries to it’s treatment of it’s people on economic, religious, social, cultural, and individual rights issues, that no other countries hold a candle to us. Go live overseas and do some of the social activism and journalistic nonsense that goes on in the States, and you will find yourself in a world of legal hurt with the authorities, to say nothing of the freedoms of religion and individual rights you enjoy here; and I am talking Australia and the EU! If you make it to other regions, religion becomes a discriminatory issue and being a local minority can be detrimental to your health to a far greater extent that anything experienced in the US in the last 60 to 80 years. We as a society have evolved and our left wing friends want to drag us in the direction of A Third World mentality, which will lead us away from what we have accomplished, since our nation was founded and evolved socially and economically from an opportunity perspective. Do we have problems…of course, but to a far lesser degree than what else is out there, and do not believe what the NYT is propagandizing…the Mara Gay's of the world are Globalists using techniques perfected by the likes of Joseph Goebbel's himself:
Not every item of news should be published. Rather must those who control news policies endeavor to make every item of news serve a certain purpose…..Joseph Goebbels.
