OK, I understand that headline is going to strike people wrong. I get it that it may look like I’m actually FOR sexual misconduct, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. I’m speaking strictly about New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo’s predicament. Now some magazine has come out and said that it’s not six or even seven women that have been abused in some way by the Governor…it’s 30!
And I’m here to contend, that these allegations, while important are the least of Cuomo’s problems.
I think a much more damning issue with Cuomo is his total disregard for elderly life with his decision to mandate that nursing homes accept COVID patients, right in the midst of the most vulnerable people in our society. And while the sexual misconduct charges are garnering all of the headlines, I have to say that I find it rather disgusting that sexual abuse is viewed in our society, apparently more serious of an issue than the killing off of the elderly.
Let’s get it straight. Andrew Cuomo’s life as a politician is over. I saw a poll recently that said most people feel he won’t resign, but will fight it right up to the point that he realizes there are votes there to impeach him. I’m not sure if New York has the same punishment that we went through with Donald Trump, whereby not only are you removed from office, but you may not be able to run for elective office (at least local or state office) again. If that’s the case, I would see him bailing before he’s actually impeached, tried, and convicted. It’s the Nixon gambit.
But what worries me more than anything to do with Andrew Cuomo, because I really don’t care about him, is that we seem to be paying attention to the wrong things in our society these days. We spend much more time worrying about how many women a politician groped than we do about how many people the same politician killed with his policies and decisions.
As we look around the country, I find it very sad that the left views what happened at the US Capitol on January 6th to be an incredibly heinous display by what appears to be Trump supporters (though there have been at least one or two ANTIFA members videotaped inside the Capitol during that incursion), and yet they have nothing to say about the riots in Portland, Seattle, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and Minneapolis. They cry that five people died in the Capitol takeover attempt, yet have are silent about the 25 people that were killed in the riots.
We tragically mourn the death of someone like George Floyd, and we all do, but have no problem turning a blind eye to the number of murders that happen every weekend on the streets of Chicago, Baltimore, Washington, DC, or New York City. We continuously hear complaints about how treasonous Donald Trump’s acts were as president…that he was “illegitimate”, yet we hear nothing about Hunter Biden’s foibles, or if, and how deep the current President of the United States has been involved in it, and whether he profited by millions of dollars in the shady dealings.
This country is at a crossroads. We either are going to allow the leftist snowflake socialists to continue with their notion of being “woke” and using cancel culture to sweep American history under the rug, or we are going to return to what made America great. It isn’t about this complaining about meaningless stuff like not publishing books by Dr. Seuss. That sounds more like Nazi Germany than it does the United States. And they want to tell me that Donald Trump was the Nazi? Somehow I think they were skipping school during that part of history class!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
