New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was extremely mad online after the Proud Boys hung banners in New York City over the weekend.
“The Proud Boys banners found in NYC today have been removed and an investigation is ongoing. I have a message for the ‘Bigot Boys’ who skulk around like cowards in the dead of night: when you preach hate and division, NY answers with love and unity. Crawl back into your hole,” Cuomo said on Twitter.
The brother of CNN’s Chris Cuomo – one of the most far-left partisan news anchors on the cable circuit – attached a lengthy statement in which he attempted to act like a tough guy.
“Early this morning posters and banners apparently created by the neo-fascist group Proud Boys were found at various tunnels across New York City. The banners, which included extremist right-wing propaganda slogans like “no retreat” and “no surrender,” as well as Italian-American stereotypes were clearly meant to divide and instill fear in New Yorkers.”
“New York is not intimidated by these neo-fascists.”
“I have a message for the ‘Bigot Boys’ who skulk around like cowards in the dead of night: when you preach hate and division, New York answers with love and unity. Crawl back into your hole, Bigot Boys – there’s no place for hate in our state.”
Wow, Governor. Very cool!
Cuomo’s tweet said an investigation into the banners was ongoing, though what exactly was being investigated is unclear. It’s still legal in the United States to express one’s opinion freely – at least for now. Nor did it bother to explain how “no retreat” and “no surrender” were “extremist right-wing propaganda slogans.”
Enrique Tarrio, the Proud Boys Chairman, provided Loomered with some photographs of the banners in question. One referred to the city government as tyrants:
“Andrew Cuomo = Fredo,” another said.
Cuomo was referencing the word “Fredo” when he said that the banners included “Italian-American stereotypes.” His brother Chris became riled in public when someone called him “Fredo” in August. The incident was captured on video. Chris Cuomo attempted to justify his anger by calling “Fredo” an anti-Italian slur used in the film “The Godfather” to malign one of the characters.
The Proud Boys were in New York City over the weekend protesting after two of their members, Maxwell Hare and John Kinsman were sentenced to 4 years in prison for defending themselves during a brawl with masked Antifa thugs.
The man who presided over the case, Judge Mark Dwyer, proving his bias, proclaimed that the fight reminded him of 1930s Germany and the rise of fascism. None of the members of Antifa who were involved in the melee were arrested, or testified at the trial.
Meanwhile, Antifa members have been allowed to run amok throughout the country. Several of them have committed acts of violence and haven’t faced any jail time, including the infamous “bike lock professor” who violently assaulted Trump supporters at a Berkeley, California rally, only to have the serious charges against him dropped and receive probation.
