As a New Yorker, This Is What I Have to Say About Cruz’s Comments on New York Values


When Ted Cruz dissed New York values during the debate, Donald Trump set up a straw man and talked passionately about 9/11 even though 9/11 had nothing to do with the point Cruz was making. Joining the bandwagon was Fox News, the entire media, politicos from both sides of the aisle and everyone else who chose to ignore what Cruz was referring to, so I’m illuminating here.

New York values are Progressive, Socialist, and Communist values. All Republican voices are being quickly eliminated through illegal immigration, an influx of refugees, and a demand that all on the right except liberal Republicans shut up.

All I hear is how Cruz insulted those wonderful New Yorkers and yet takes money from them – HYPOCRITE! Truth is,he wasn’t insulting those New Yorkers and they darn well know it.

Cruz was referring to the following – the leaders chosen by New Yorkers.


Gov. Cuomo had a message for conservative Republicans in 2014 — you don’t belong in New York.

Cuomo said that members of the GOP with “extreme” views are creating an identity crisis for their party and represent a bigger worry than Democrats such as himself.

“Their problem isn’t me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves,” the governor said on Albany’s The Capitol Pressroom radio show.

“Who are the they? Right to life, pro-assault weapons, anti-gay — if that’s who they are, they have no place in the state of New York because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”

For information purposes: Cuomo wants abortion until the moment of birth though the babies are fully-developed human beings. He thinks wanting marriage to remain between a man and a woman is anti-gay. Both of these issues encompass all New York Catholics – they’d all have to leave New York.

He added that moderate Republicans [liberals who call themselves moderates], such as those in the state senate, “have a place in their state.”

His values explained:

He definitely wants your guns. It’s a New York value.

The left believes that there is an epidemic of rapes on college campuses. It’s a vote getter for any politician who wants to side with them in liberal states. Andrew Cuomo claimed that one in four women are victims but only 5% report it. How could he possibly know the figures are that high if only 5% report?

Dictator Andrew Cuomo has foisted a legislative proposal on the lawmakers using phony statistics.

Cuomo’s law requires affirmative consent as “a clear, unambiguous, and voluntary agreement between the participants to engage in specific sexual activity,” Mr. Cuomo’s office said.

He’s a bad Catholic who banned travel to Indiana like a dictator when the Governor of Indiana reaffirmed the Religious Freedom Act.


Communist mayor Bill de Blasio represents New York values.

De Blasio told the New York City residents during his inauguration that he was going ‘to ask the rich to pay just a little bit’ more so he can pay for government-controlled universal pre-K and after-school programs. Hillary nodded and smiled as he said it.


The rich in NY are already the most heavily taxed in the country.

De Blasio began with what has become a collectivist slogan, It Takes a Village, and then turned to nod and smile at Hillary who wrote the book, It Takes a Village, a term she did not coin. It’s an old African proverb and communist epistemologists use it.

He spoke of HUD and their “big ideas” and she nodded enthusiastically. HUD of course was behind forcing banks to give mortgages to the poor who couldn’t afford them, leading to a flood of foreclosures during the economic crisis five years ago. They are also busy social engineering neighborhoods throughout the country.

De Blasio thanked Mayor Dinkins for “making New York a safer city.” Crime and murder rates skyrocketed under Dinkins. The truth is the opposite of De Blasio’s pronouncement. De Blasio wants social justice, income equality, and government control over children from the pre-K level on. Obviously it is what Hillary wants as well or she wouldn’t have shown her enthusiastic support as he spoke.

He said that New Yorkers “blazed the trail of progressive reform.” His movement is about ‘economic justice,’ which means he believes the government has the right to take as much of other peoples’ money as it wants. He “will take dead aim at The Tale of Two Cities’ and he ‘meant it,” he said.

De Blasio said he would expand the ‘paid sick leave law’ and force it on private business. Big developers will be required to build more affordable housing, aka section 8. Hillary smiled and nodded.

He railed against the growing gap between rich and poor which his party has caused to grow in a way we have not seen since The Great Depression.

DeBlasio is an ardent supporter of Common Core which has become a vehicle for socialist government propaganda. I hate to quote Naom Chomsky but this quote fits, “Propaganda is to a democracy what the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state.”

He concluded his speech by saying he “will rebuild communities from the bottom up”. De Blasio fancies himself a social engineer. He defined New York as “a city that fights injustice and inequality.”

To believe this, you must abandon your ideas of earned success and individualism. It is not the individual, it is the government. It is not earned success, you didn’t build that.

De Blasio will “make New York more fairer (sic) more just, a more Progressive place…it begins today.”

All this brought smiles and nods from Hillary Clinton, who also represents New York values.

Bill de Blasio is paying four health-advocacy groups to bully landlords and developers into banning smoking in peoples’ own apartments so the secondhand smoke won’t waft into neighbor’s residences.

People won’t be able to smoke even in their own homes if they share a wall with someone, but don’t worry, it’s all voluntary for now. Hitler probably said that once too.

It’s for the common good.

For Warren Wilhelm Jr aka Bill de Blasio, it’s never about talent, quality, commitment, hard work, it’s about race and ideology.

There is a major review of the diversity of the boards, staffs and audiences of New York City cultural organizations, such as museums, orchestras and dance troupes this summer to be undertaken by his administration, the NY Times reports.

“If you’re living in a city like we are in New York — with 65 percent people of color right now — maybe we’re missing out on some of the talent if we don’t have diverse audiences, staffs and boards,” said Tom Finkelpearl, the city’s commissioner of cultural affairs, whose department will commission the study.

They’d like to see a 65% audience of color! Talent is irrelevant.

He illegally staffs the civil services with Muslims, African-Americans, and illegal immigrants based on a quota system.

Hillary Clinton is a liar but will most likely rule as a Progressive.

Yes, New York values. Aren’t they lovely? For me…today…New York values stink.



  1. While I took a somewhat different approach, I feel the same way. I believe that Progressives and their media sock puppets are using this exchange between Trump and Cruz as a distraction intended to divert attention away from Hillary Clinton.

    I would not put it pass the Progressive Republican establishment to try to position their candidate into place while they think everyone is distracted with “New York Values.”

    The problem with all of the above is that I keep hearing that New Yorkers are so upset when most of the New Yorkers I am communicating with could care less. Most New Yorkers that I know are more concerned with Cuomo and de Blasio whom they can’t wait to vote out of office.
