Kathy Hochul Attacks Transportation, Free Speech

It seemed no replacement could be worse than the arrogantly tyrannical Andrew Cuomo. But progressives always manage to progress still further into dysfunctional authoritarian madness. Kathy Hochul tops even Cuomo by banning normal vehicles and calling on Facebook to censor opponents of abortion.

Via Newsmax:

Gov. Kathy Hochul, D-N.Y., last week signed legislation banning the sale of new gas-powered cars and trucks by 2035.

Mandating the use of economically inefficient electric vehicles in the name of the climate allows Democrats to adopt the posture that they control even the weather. The policy also has a real world application: to make vehicles unaffordable to many Americans, denying them independent transportation. All things independent are anathema to Democrats.

By 2035, the last sane Americans will have escaped the People’s Republic of New York anyway. But Hochul et al. would like to see authoritarian ecolunacy imposed nationwide:

New York, California, and 10 other states asked President Joe Biden in April to set standards to ensure that all new passenger cars and light-duty trucks are zero-emissions by 2035.

Censorship is something else Hochul would like to impose beyond the borders of the Empire State. Via The Blaze:

In a letter to Facebook founder, chairman and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, the governor requested “information on any and all existing efforts to combat misinformation regarding abortion laws, procedures, and their availability.” She also pressed for Zuckerberg to, “Take additional action to curb the spread of this misinformation, as Facebook has with information related to COVID-19, vaccines, and voting rights.”

If information regarding Covid and election integrity that Democrats want suppressed constitutes “misinformation,” so does anything that might dissuade expectant mothers from aborting their children.

New York’s next governor will likely be even worse than Hochul, difficult as that might be to imagine.
