Granny Killer Cuomo Calls Sherriffs Who Refuse to Enforce 10-Person Thanksgiving Ban in Homes “Dictators”

Now that's creative

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) responded angrily Monday to sheriffs in the state who said they would not be enforcing COVID-19 restrictions that limit indoor gatherings, including during the upcoming holidays.

Sheriffs in four New York counties said last week on social media that they would not be enforcing the coronavirus rules, claiming their jurisdiction does not apply inside people’s homes and that the orders were not constitutionally defensible.

“This is an emotional time, political time. Everybody has their own strongly held opinion. Right. You have a strongly held opinion that says, ‘COVID is all an overreaction. It’s a hoax. I’m not wearing a mask. I’m not following these rules.’ You have sheriffs upstate who have said, ‘I’m not going to enforce the law,’” Cuomo said during a press briefing.

“I believe that law enforcement officer violates his or her constitutional duty. I don’t consider them a law enforcement officer. Because you don’t have the right to pick laws that you think you will enforce, and you don’t enforce laws that you don’t agree with. Right. That’s not a law enforcement officer. That’s a dictator,” he added.

“God bless you,” Cuomo added. “But don’t ask me for help.”

The governor said what happens in people’s homes is absolutely the government’s business.

“Laws apply in your home. Domestic violence applies in your home. Drug laws apply in your home. Yes, it does,” he said.

The state’s new executive order limiting in-person gatherings inside private homes to 10 people has been met with considerable criticism, including law enforcement wondering how their officers can enforce this rule.

Lewis County Sheriff Michael P. Carpinelli has been one of the sheriffs rather vocal about his opposition to the governor’s continued mandates throughout the pandemic.

Over the summer, the sheriff went on record saying he and his deputies would not be patrolling county bars to enforce state social distancing and mask mandates.

“To me, it’s not a criminal crisis, it’s a health crisis,” Sheriff Carpinelli previously said. “Why should the police be enforcing a health crisis?”

Sheriff Carpinelli earlier this year announced his bid to run against Gov. Cuomo in 2022.

After Monday’s press conference, the New York State Sheriff’s Association issued a three-page letter in response to the governor’s comments, stating the 10-person limit on gatherings in private homes has “caused great consternation among many of our citizens, who envision armed officers arriving at their doors to count the number of people around the Thanksgiving table.”

The letter says this would be “neither practical nor Constitutional.”

In response to the governor’s comment that law enforcement officers can’t “pick and choose” which laws they wish to enforce, the association said it finds the comment “ironic, and disingenuous” as the governor has directed that state police do not need to enforce the order.

The letter continues on to say those in law enforcement are not sure whether the 10-person limit is the right call, or number, to make.

“That is a decision for science, not us, to make,” the letter says.

But, they said they do know the onus the governor has put upon law enforcement is an “impossible task.”

“We urge all our citizens to keep informed on the best steps to take to protect themselves, and others, from the spread of this terrible disease. We urge you to listen to our public health officials. We urge you to limit your exposure to those outside your household as much as you reasonably can. If we all do that, we will sooner be able to get back to normal,” the letter reads. “We in law enforcement do not have the resources nor the legal authority to force you to do those things. It is a matter of individual responsibility and we are confident that you will all voluntarily rise to the occasion.”

Do all these people really not know the meaning of “dictator” and “fascism”? Because what he is doing is in line with dictators and Antifa are acting like fascists. Maybe Cuomo will go beat up every sheriff, I mean, he’s such a tough guy.

Well, this statement makes perfect sense:

“We urge all our citizens to keep informed on the best steps to take to protect themselves, and others, from the spread of this terrible disease. We urge you to listen to our public health officials. We urge you to limit your exposure to those outside your household as much as you reasonably can. If we all do that, we will sooner be able to get back to normal,” the letter reads. “We in law enforcement do not have the resources nor the legal authority to force you to do those things. It is a matter of individual responsibility and we are confident that you will all voluntarily rise to the occasion.”

Law Enforcement or Rule Enforcement… How many of this idiots mandates (rules) are law passed by a legislature?

His mandates killed thousands of seniors. Yet the dicktator is not held responsible. He has destroyed the economy yet this dicktator is not held responsible. He has ordered masks for children which will be deleterious to their health yet he is not held responsible. He has eliminated businesses and jobs yet he is not held responsible and the list is endless. He has done all this on the basis you might come down with a cold. (corona) The virus they speak of has never been isolated and proven to exist. They guessed at the sequence and are using the same PCR test they used in 2005. Their supposed vaccine will change your DNA so if there are any problems you are stuck with them as you cannot undo the genetic change. This is a thousand times worse than anything Hitler was dreaming of.

Under the 9th amendment natural law says you have the right to work,,, to run a business,,, to not have to wear anything that can be detrimental to your health,,, the right to obtain any medical care you need,,, the right to travel unhindered,,, the right to believe in a God of your choice,,, and countless others.

This idiot has no authority to tell you how to live your life, who to love, who to hug, who to kiss, to quarantine unless they can PROVE you are sick.

Sad thing is,,, he will probably be re elected.

I would agree except I’m against the death penalty. Better to make him suffer, let him think about the evil he’s committed for a long time.

That’s not a death penalty, just recycling a PoS.

If you prefer suffering… Just hang the asshole by is feet make a small cut in the neck vein and enjoy the show.
