New York Governor, murderer of nursing home residents, and credibly-accused sexual harasser Andrew Cuomo has decided New York will ignore our fallen military heroes, and instead celebrate essential COVID-19 workers on Memorial Day.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo drew scrutiny Monday after he called for the public to honor COVID-19 essential workers on Memorial Day, the federal holiday traditionally reserved for honoring fallen military servicemembers.
I still remember my grandfather telling me how doctors and nurses stormed St. Mihiel during WWI.
“It’s Memorial Day and we remember those who gave their lives on Memorial Day, gave their lives for this country or for freedom, because freedom isn’t free,” Cuomo said at a press conference. “I also think we should remember this past year on Memorial Day, remember the 42,000 New Yorkers who died. 42,000. Remember the 1,000 essential workers who died giving their life.”
Ironically, most of these people were killed by Andrew Cuomo and his nursing home directives.
Cuomo said that flags throughout the state would be flown at half-staff during Memorial Day Weekend in remembrance of essential workers who died during the coronavirus pandemic. State landmarks will be illuminated red, white and blue.
For someone who is occasionally deemed an “essential worker,” I think this is the stupidest idea Cuomo ever concocted. I’ve lost a few coworkers to the Chinese Wuhan Virus, and even they would think this is an idiotic idea. Memorial Day is for those brave men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect this country and its freedoms.
