‘You’re not New Yorkers’: Hochul says political rivals like Zeldin ought to move to Florida. ““We are fighting for democracy. We’re fighting to bring government back to the people and out of the hands of dictators,” Hochul said at a Monday evening rally in Kingston alongside Democratic congressional candidate Pat Ryan, where she called out his Republican opponent, Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro, Zeldin and former President Donald Trump.”
Looking at the photos in the NY Post article, I do not see a teleprompter, which leads me to believe that New York’s Governor is speaking from her deeply held beliefs that she is “fighting to bring government back to the people and out of the hands of dictators…” and then went on to say “Trump and Zeldin and Molinaro – just jump on a bus and head down to Florida where you belong. OK? Get out of town. Because you don’t represent our values,” added Hochul, who raised eyebrows last week for a dig against Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis at a Manhattan event commemorating the Holocaust. (As written in that article, Gov. Hochul quickly noted “Getting in trouble – gotta stay on script…”.)
It is interesting how you say that the three gentlemen you singled out to “jump on a bus and head down to Florida,” “don’t represent your values.”
Which values are you referring to, Governor? The ones you used when you chose Brian Benjamin as your Lt. Governor? Perhaps you are referring to the amount of money taxpayers will have to pay for the Buffalo Stadium that potentially could benefit your husband. Of course, your values include using state aircraft as your personal taxi, refusing to fire DA Bragg, lets not forget that you also refuse to protect merchants, customers, and innocent people by not having a meaningful discussion of the criminal justice reforms that has caused untold hardship on New Yorkers just trying to make a living in New York State. Your values also include using Executive Orders to prevent New York returning to a sense of normality as COVID lessens it grip on New York. Governor Hochul, your values also include signing a legislative package to “strengthen” the state’s gun laws, which are already among the most restrictive gun laws possible, to further limit our 2nd Amendment rights.
It is interesting to know that you want to take New York’s government out of the hands of dictators; while all you have done with your words is show what a dictator you are. If New Yorkers do not agree with what you want, if they want to protect innocent lives, especially unborn innocent lives, if they do not want their hard earned money used to build a sports stadium they will never use, if they complain when you use state aircraft as your personal taxi, if they demand an honest discussion on the failed criminal justice reforms, if they are fed up with Executive Orders interfering in their daily lives and understand that placing more restrictions on our 2nd Amendment only creates a market for more illegal guns on the streets, they are the dictators, Governor?
Look in a mirror, Governor, you are the dictator, and we will end your reign.
