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

Published

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.

Hunter Biden’s Art Dealer Had Grand Chinese Ambitions in 2015

This certainly raises a few new questions…

Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, has been heavily criticized in recent weeks, as he begins to sell hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of art to anonymous buyers around the world. As one can imagine, the idea that such vast amounts of money are pouring into the First Family without any transparency has led to concerns about foreign interests gaining a foothold in the White House via untraceable transactions. New reporting regarding Hunter Biden’s art dealer is now exacerbating those worries. The art dealer representing the president’s son has longstanding ties to China and said in 2015 that he wanted to be the art world’s “lead guy in China.” Georges Berges, who is representing Hunter Biden as he ventures into the art world, has talked about his business dealings in China in the past, but his reported ties could pose an ethics issue as he sells Biden’s art to anonymous buyers. Here is where it gets wild: Berges said in a 2015 interview with Resident that he wanted to be the art world’s leader in China. “My plan is to be the lead guy in China; the lead collector and art dealer discovering and nurturing talent from that region,” Berges said. “I plan to find and discover and bring to the rest of the world those I consider China’s next generation of modern artists.” He also said that that he believes “China’s economy is transforming the global economy and everything is changing because of a rising China,” and that he was fascinated by “cultural impact” China is “having on the world.” “Cultural power is real power. That is the reason America continues to be the capital of the world, because of its influence on culture for generations and on an unrivaled global level,” Berges also said. “And I…

GOP Rep. Says There’s ‘Credible’ Evidence of Wuhan Lab-Leak Theory

China has been avoiding any such investigation for months now.

From the very moment that the COVID-19 pandemic began, there were concerns that China wasn’t telling us the truth. This was primarily based on Beijing’s horrendous record of dishonesty when it comes to the international community, which has been ever-so frequent in cases in which the Chinese government could be made to appear cruel or uncaring. To be fair, it doesn’t take long for most to realize that this is, in fact, reality, especially as we continue to receive credible reports of the nation’s use of concentration camps and ethnic cleansing. In the case of the coronavirus, not only did the world discover that the data coming out of Beijing was wholly incorrect, but that a laboratory specializing in the exact type of coronaviruses that caused COVID-19 happened to be just a few miles away from the epicenter of the pandemic. Now, despite numerous attempts to stall or stymy efforts to investigate the theory that pandemic began as a lab-leak, one US lawmaker is claiming that there is credible evidence of just such a possibility.  Sunday, on FNC’s “The Next Revolution,” Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-IA) stressed the importance of investigating the origins of COVID-19, and in particular, China’s role. His statement was stern. “As you know, we still have yet to have any notice that there will be an investigation. And so I think, rightfully, we used the powers of oversight that we have in Congress and we convened a hearing. Unfortunately, none of the Democrats attended that hearing. But the expert testimony from the witnesses was quite profound and quite significant. “And I think as they said, and I would tend to agree that this virus came from the laboratory, whether it was a leak, whether it was accidental, whether it was intentional, whether it was manmade or whether it…
