Andrew Cuomo Desperately Tries to Walk Back “America Was Never Great” Comments

Published

on

Liberal Democrats have a tough job.

They have to portray enough hatred for America to satisfy their more radical voters and stay within the realms of the media narrative, but not enough to turn off their more moderate base who probably like America, at least a little bit.

When Cuomo virtue signaled his rear off at a recent event on gender politics and said that America was “never that great”, he most likely thought the sentiment would fall on eager ears.

His context was that until every woman in the nation got her butt out of the kitchen, stuck her kids in daycare, and entered the workforce (I might be paraphrasing), that America would never reach its full potential.

It speaks quite a bit to the current zeitgeist of the left that Cuomo thought it was OK to say this. After all, “America was never great” is a favorite chant of far-left socialist and “anti”-fascist protesters, who the media has been galvanizing as brave heroes of Democracy (they’ll even cover up the physical assault of journalists at these protests if they have to.)

But it was met with some backlash, which, during an election year, Cuomo has had to scramble to respond to.

IJR Red reports:

When Cuomo spoke on Friday about his comments, he said he was “inartful.”

“The expression I used the other day was inartful, so I want to be very clear,” he said, according to The Democrat & Chronicle.

“Of course America is great and of course America has always been great. No one questions that,” he added.

He went on to describe how his immigrant ancestors showed evidence of America’s greatness.

“As you know, my family is evidence of American greatness. My grandparents came to this country as poor immigrants and their son became governor and his son became governor. That’s never been a question,” he said.

His office had already attempted to backtrack on his “America was never great” comments by saying that Cuomo did indeed believe America was great, but Trump:

Here, you can see, he is trying to walk the line between “America is already great” and “America was never great”, which any sensible person would observe are two opposing sentiments.

If you ever felt like the left was intellectually caving in on itself due to rampant cognitive dissonance, here’s a very good example.

Portrait of Texas School Shooter Emerges in Wake of Tragedy

Authorities still have plenty of explaining left to do.

Published

on

While some in American politics continue to obsess over the instruments of tragedy, there are others who are looking to the impetus for these actions, in hopes that we can discover the reason for the uptick in violence in America.

Mass shootings are a problem in America, and no one is denying that.  The political fracas we face today is not so much about declaring our disgust as it is about discovering the reason for these tragedies, as we already understand how they are committed.

And in that pursuit, we must examine deeply the background of those who commit such atrocities.

Authorities identified Salvador Ramos as the shooter who opened fire in Robb Elementary in Uvalde, Texas, on Tuesday. The 18-year-old shot and killed at least 19 students and two teachers, Fox News confirmed.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott identified Ramos as the shooter and said the Uvalde local entered the school grounds and proceeded to open fire. Abbott also said the shooter is dead and is believed to have acted alone.

There were some clues online, it seems.

Ramos allegedly posted disturbing images online before the shooting, and apparently messaged a woman about his plans before he carried out the deadly attack.

An Instagram account allegedly connected to Ramos featured disturbing photos, including one showing a high-capacity magazine. The Instagram account has since been taken down.

The same account allegedly sent alarming messages to a woman before the deadly attack. The first message, sent on May 12, asked, “You gonna repost my gun pics?” The woman was tagged in photos showing guns.

Authorities have yet to declare a motive in the case, leaving many to wonder what could have driven Ramos to such horrid behavior.
