New York Values? With Anthony Weiner, the Cuomos, Client Number 9, and Rampant Corruption, Cruz is RIGHT!

-By Warner Todd Huston

With New Yorkers wringing their hands and crying like babies over Ted Cruz’ “New York values” comment, one has to laugh at the state whose denizens usually prides themselves on being so tough acting like two-year-old whiners. But, despite their stomping of feet, the fact is, Ted Cruz is right. New York values are corrupt, generally un-American and the perfect example of how not to be as an American. Sadly, there is very little good to say about the Empire State.

Yes, we all felt for New York during the attacks on 9/11. Yes, we stood with New York on that terrible day. But let’s face it, that would be about the only time in the last 50 years that the rest of the country had any sympathy for that corrupt den of thieves. Further, the attack on the World Trade Center was not an attack strictly on “New York.” It was an attack on the whole of the country. Remember, they also planned to hit the White House and did hit the Pentagon that same day. If the World Trade Center happened to be in Philly, it would have been Philly they targeted.

The truth is, New York is generally the worst of what the nation has to offer. It’s taxes are too high, it is extremely liberal, it is pro-abortion, anti-Second Amendment, anti-business, it’s politicians stand against American freedoms and liberties, and they are lovers of the nanny state.

Before we get farther into this, let’s dispense with this silly “yeah, but some people there are great” argument. If you are going to employ that line of pap, you are a liberal because only liberals are so broad minded that everything falls through the cracks–especially truth.

Yes, yes, yes, there are “some people” who live in New York who are great. And they are a tiny, meaningless and powerless minority and because they don’t actually control what the majority of the state does they are dismissed (and absolved) from the accusations against their fellows.

You see, you can’t make a moral point unless you talk in generalities. If you didn’t use what is a mean average for something, then nothing is ever “wrong.” After all, something good can be found in just about anything and if you are going to use “something good” as your criteria, then nothing could ever be “bad” or “wrong.” And in that case, you cannot have morals because that “something good” would always over power the moral truth.

Now, that being said, back to “New York Values”: The “values” that prevail in New York–both the city and the state–are mostly horrendous, un-American, un-Constitutional, irreligious, and immoral. In short, New York “values” is a sarcastic remark because New York has no values, at least not any good ones.

New York is infested with rampant political corruption. Again, every state has it, but being the “big” state New York is, it has commensurately big corruption. You have a governor that lost his job because of his philandering and disgusting sexual peccadilloes with prostitutes (along with his lies about same), you have a whole raft of local politicians recently sent to jail (including the powerful Assembly Speaker), you have Congressmen having to leave office over sex scandals, tax evasion and other corruption (just recently Michael Grimm, Eric Massa, Chris Lee, and Anthony Weiner), and others (such as Charlie Wrangle) so neck deep in financial corruption that the House of Representatives had to censure them, and that is only a short note about the ones who have been punished for their corruption.

Then you have the hundreds of state officials who are corrupt as the day is long but haven’t been convicted as of yet. Just pick up any New York newspaper or sit in on any random newscast and you’ll be introduced to them daily.

Every state has corrupt officials, granted. Illinois is no piker, either. But for New York what is worse than the mere corruption is the corrupt moral status of politics in New York.

Here are just a few examples:

… face it, we could go on like this for days.

In addition, let us also not forget that New York is the locus for one of the most immoral organizations ever created by the warped mind of men: The United Nations. And I have but one last name to add to the list of horrible people who are proud New Yorkers… the Clintons.

In the end, notwithstanding that there are certainly “some” good people there, New York is a rotten place, full of rotten people, pushing un-American, wrong-headed, and just plain bad ideals.

Cruz is right. When people hear the phrase “New York Values” they understand that the phrase is an epithet that perfectly describes a venal state.

Finally, I’d suggest, New Yorkers, that if you don’t like it, then change your ways. Stop wallowing in your “New York values” and start taking on American values.

Still, Ted Cruz did decide he had to apologize for his truthful campaign rhetoric. And his apology is a masterful one…

Hillary Clinton and Andrew Cuomo and Bill de Blasio have all demanded an apology. I’m happy to apologize:

I apologize to the millions of New Yorkers who have been let down by liberal politicians in that state.

I apologize to the hard working men and women of the state of New York who have been denied jobs because Governor Cuomo won’t allow fracking. Even though there had been many high paying jobs just south in Pennsylvania, New Yorkers are denied the ability to provide for their families.

I apologize to all the pro-life and pro-marriage and pro-second amendment New Yorkers who were told by Governor Cuomo that they have no place in New York because that’s not who New Yorkers are.

I apologize to all the small businesses who have been driven out of New York city by crushing taxes and regulations.

I apologize to the millions of unborn children, many African-American and Hispanic, whose lives have been taken by politicians who relentlessly promote abortion on demand with no limitations.

I apologize to all of the African-American children who Mayor de Blasio tried to throw out of their charter schools that were providing a lifeline to the American Dream.

I apologize to the people of New York who are offended when the New York Daily News lambastes anyone who prays for victims of violence.

I apologize to the people of faith who are ridiculed and insulted by the New York media.

And I apologize to all the cops and the firefighters and 9/11 heroes who had no choice but to stand and turn their backs on Mayor de Blasio, because Mayor de Blasio over and over again stands with the looters and criminals rather than the brave men and women of the law.

And to the millions of conservatives–working men and women in New York, with common sense values, trapped by the failures of your political leaders–I am glad to tell you, help us on the way. 2016, like 1980, will bring America back

Spot on, my Texan friend.
