Yeah, Cuomo Resigned but for All the Wrong Reasons

I don’t want to be the one to rain on a really solid parade but the resignation of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is the end we wanted, but the means by which he should have gotten there is still completely going ignored.

As Nick Arama wrote, on Tuesday Cuomo resigned with all the dignity of a Captain going down with his vessel, the good ship Groper. On the surface level, it has everything to do with the fact that he’s got a line of women going out the door that are reporting him for sexual misconduct. On the other, an investigation began into an illegal phone call Cuomo made to the Obama White House about Preet Bharara, a U.S. attorney who was investigating corruption in New York.

The latter is definitely shadier as it loops in other prominent Democrats, including Barack Obama in terms of wrongdoing and unethical behavior. We can’t have that. Obama must be protected at all costs as he is the highest being in the Democrat mythos.

While it’s all well and good that Cuomo is ousted for one or both of those things, it’s not right that he’s resigning for either of those reasons.

Remember. Cuomo killed 15,000 people with his COVID-19 strategy, which was to move elderly patients infected with the virus to unsecured nursing homes. It was a cover-up that was largely ignored by the press but was starting to gain traction in news cycles and damaging his support on both sides of the aisle before stories about his sexual misconduct began popping up left and at just the right moment.

Despite #MeToo fever, Cuomo’s unwanted sexual advances could be far more easily dealt with than being the direct cause of 15,000 dead New Yorkers. Even as the women began coming forward, Cuomo didn’t budge. CNN didn’t seem to care. “Cuomosexuals” announced themselves proudly. The worship of him didn’t cease. With Gavin Newsom facing recall, Cuomo was still the go-to example on how to be a governor.

But now he suddenly is. We can speculate all day as to the real reason, whether it’s the weight of the accusations, the measures to protect a Democrat party legacy, or if it was even to protect Kamala Harris’s chances in 2024 (a theory being bandied about), but no matter what, the real reason isn’t the reason it should be.

Andrew Cuomo should be resigning because he killed 15,000 people.

More importantly, this has some very eye-opening implications on what Democrats actually consider important. The fact that he’s not being forced to resign over killing thousands of Americans, but instead something like groping a few women or endangering the Obama administration should send up so many red flags you’d think this was a Chinese communist party rally. To be clear, groping women without their consent is absolutely awful, but I think the deaths of thousands is a far higher crime.

If Democrats don’t care, and actively attempted to avoid talking about policies they wholeheartedly endorsed being the deaths of your parents or grandparents, then they must not think about you very highly. It would appear that your safety is considered a tertiary concern. It’s their own political power that is first and foremost. This should surprise no one, given their penchant to applaud rioters who burn entire cities down and murder everyone from retired police officers to children all in the name of “justice” and “equality.”

At the end of the day, it’s great that Cuomo’s gone, but it needs to be hammered home that his true crime was his crime against the very lives of Americans. It not only implicates him, but shows where the true concerns of the Democrat party lie, and just how far they’re willing to go to make sure you don’t see the real issues.
