Andrew Cuomo would never be caught dead describing an actual jihad as a “jihad,” because he is committed, like all the Democrats, to the false claim that Islam is a religion of peace that has nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism, and that jihad is an interior spiritual struggle. But he feels free to use the word in a negative manner to denigrate President Trump and his immigration policies. Doesn’t that make Cuomo a racist-islamophobic-anti-Muslim-bigot? The hypocrisy of the left is stunning. This shows that Cuomo actually does have a negative view of jihad, but he would never dare admit that explicitly. It would mean the end of his political career in this fantasy-loving age.
“Cuomo: Trump Admin. Is on a ‘Jihad to Deport as Many People’ as Possible,” by Haris Alic, Daily Caller, July 24, 2018 (thanks to Todd):
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D.) compared the Trump administration’s efforts to crackdown on illegal immigration to the zealotry of Jihad, an Arabic word describing a holy war waged on behalf of Islam as a religious duty.
Cuomo made the comments while in Puerto Rico on Monday, where the governor had journeyed with a delegation of New York elected officials, students, and labor leaders to observe recovery efforts undertaken since Hurricanes Maria and Irma ravaged the island last year.
During a press briefing to publicize his visit, the governor was asked about his decision to issue a pardon to seven illegal immigrants residing in New York that were facing deportation by federal law enforcement for “minor convictions.”
The governor justified his actions, claiming the Trump administration had launched a “crusade” against those they do not “consider original Americans.”
“This administration is on a crusade against people who they do not consider original Americans,” Cuomo said. “Which is specious and hypocritical at best [because] unless you’re a member of a Native American tribe, then you’re really an immigrant to the United States.”
The pardons, which were issued on Monday, marked the third time Cuomo has intervened using his gubernatorial authority to shield illegal immigrants from “potential deportation.”
Citing what had been done in “Puerto Rico” and “at the border,” the governor claimed President Donald Trump and his administration were waging a “Jihad” on illegal immigrants.
“They are on a Jihad to deport as many people as they can who they believe are not in the United States legally,” Cuomo said….
