From Fr. Z: Gov. Andrew Cuomo: conservatives “have no place in the state of New York”

Fr. Z shared a distressing article about New York that I’m afraid will be the trend in our country, the more we hope to follow Canada and Europe.

The Republican Party candidates are running against the SAFE Act — it was voted for by moderate Republicans who run the Senate! Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves. Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life[!] pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.  [Will he have people rounded up and deported?  Perhaps he’ll inter them in camps with the help of the National Guard.]

[Fr. Z’s emphases and comments]

Where is the freedom, the tolerance, the multiculturalism in scapegoating and eliminating political enemies?  That is the broad lie of the ideology of multiculturalism: adhere to my version of diversity or leave.  Seems more like uniculturalism to me (aka totalitarianism).  What kind of free society is this??
