GET OVER IT.
What you saw and experienced on 9/11 was an expression of American values, not New York Values. American values, for a brief moment in time, overcame the insular, narrow, lefty values of the New York City elite. These elite have adopted and revel in values that are way outside mainstream, “fly-over state” values. These elite despise the knuckle dragging, stump-toothed morons who are so unfortunate as to live between the left and right coasts.
But, Alex Griswold says it so much better:
“The notion that it’s somehow outrageous to say New York has different values than the rest of the country is, to put it bluntly, stupid. No less than the public editor of The New York Times recognized this fact a decade ago, when Daniel Okrent said in a column that “of course” the paper had a liberal bias. He argued that the bias didn’t derive from any vast left wing conspiracy or intentional malice. Instead, he noted that the paper’s editors, reporters, and columnists were all New Yorkers, and they simply have a different “value system” than the rest of the country. . . .
So where did Cruz get the idea that “New York values” are incompatible with the more conservative values that prevail in the heartland? How about from Cuomo himself:
“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 if they are the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”
So even after being told by the Governor of New York himself that conservatives aren’t welcome, it’s somehow below the belt to say they have different values.”
You want feigned indignation? Here’s yer feigned indignation – New York City elites up in arms over Ted Cruz calling them out for who they really are.
