It’s understandable that Governor Andrew Cuomo, an immigrant from New York, would be very upset about federal judges nominated by Trump being allowed to marry people. That’s a privilege meant to be reserved for clergy, ship captains, anyone who filled out a form on a website for $5, and crooked lawyers supported by Democrats. And what if they marry the wrong people, like Republicans, and those people reproduce, creating more Republicans?
This threat to the corruptacracy of New York must be resisted by all means.
Gov. Cuomo just vetoed a bill that would have allowed all federal judges to officiate at weddings in New York — saying he can’t stomach the idea that even some of the jurists might be President Trump appointees.
“I cannot in good conscience support legislation that would authorize such actions by federal judges who are appointed by this federal administration,” Cuomo said in a statement Friday as he shot down the bill — which was passed overwhelmingly by the Democratic-controlled state legislature.
“Such actions” being marrying people?
“President Trump does not embody who we are as New Yorkers,’’ the Democratic governor said. “The cornerstones that built our great state are diversity, tolerance, and inclusion. Based on these reasons, I must veto this bill.”
We must support diversity, tolerance and inclusion… by being intolerant and uninclusive of anyone who differs from us.
They must not even be allowed to marry. So much for #LoveWins.
Democratic state Sen. Liz Krueger of Manhattan told The Post that she helped sponsor the bill because it was a no-brainer.
“Four years ago, we gave the governor the ability to perform marriages. Two years ago, we gave legislators that ability. So when it was suggested to me that we expand it to federal judges, I thought, ‘Why not? The more the merrier!’ ” Krueger said.
“I’m certainly no fan of the judges this president is choosing to appoint, but since any New Yorker can become a minister online for $25 and legally perform weddings, I didn’t consider this to be a major issue.’’
Great. Now we have to fight for the right of Republicans to marry.
This is obviously a blatant case of political discrimination in marriage. It’s no different than Cuomo announcing that he won’t let Buddhist clergy or people who didn’t donate to his campaign marry people. But, of course, it’s not actionable because the media is on his side.
And so are Democrat judges.
