Sean Hannity is Leaving New York Over Pro-Life Slam

After New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said that pro-life conservatives don’t belong in New York, radio and television host Sean Hannity says he is ready to pack his bags and move. Cuomo made his disparaging comments about “extreme conservatives” during an interview with Susan Arbetter on The Capitol Pressroom radio show on Friday. Cuomo is a well-known pro-choice supporter and backed a bill last year that would have allowed for more third trimester abortions had it passed.

Cuomo was discussing the problems in Washington when he made his comments about extreme conservatives. “Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves,” Cuomo said. “Who are they? 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 they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”

In a poll taken last year, roughly 55 percent of New Yorkers identified as pro-choice while 41 percent identified as pro-life. The New York governor’s comments did not sit well with many New York conservatives, especially Sean Hannity. Hannity announced his plans to leave the state on his radio show on Monday.

“Now I want to tell you something–I was born and raised in New York,” Hannity said. “I want you to know that and I can’t wait to get out of here. I really can’t. I don’t want to pay their 10-percent state tax anymore. I live in the second-highest property taxed county in the entire country in Nassau County. I can’t wait to sell my house to somebody who wants it. I can’t wait to pay no state income tax down in Florida or Texas. I haven’t decided yet, but I’m leaning Florida because I like the water and I like to fish.”

Just in case it wasn’t clear that Hannity plans to take his money and leave, he also directed a comment at Cuomo. “Gov. Cuomo, I’m going to leave and I’m taking all of my money with me–every single solitary penny. And by the way governor, because I work here–there’s a whole bunch of people that work for me and benefit because I do two shows. And I guess maybe some of them will be out of work, governor. I’m sure you’ll take care of them.”

Hannity plans to discuss Cuomo’s comments about pro-life conservatives during On the Record on Tuesday night.

  • What I don’t understand?

    We have aborted 54 million babies since Roe vs Wade. Think of all the artists, writers, saints, builders, musicians, doctors, scientists, and just generally good people we have snuffed out before they were even born.

    There are men serving decades in prison for fist fights, smoking pot, stealing copper, and going to meet someone from the internet when a person didn’t even exist and literally nothing happens.

    Yet, a woman can kill a baby and be considered a hero to the “feminist cause”. She can snuff out a life and walk free. Go to an abortion clinic. Open the waste bags. See the little hands, fingers, and arms. You tell me there is not a victim. I dare anyone in favor of abortion to go open those bags. But they won’t. The don’t want to see what they are really doing.

    Here I will make it easy for all of you to see what an abortion looks like. Just put this in your browser.


    • YouKiddingMe

      I take it you’re of the male gender then, got it.

      • Julie

        What on Earth makes you say that? I’m a woman and I feel exactly the same way.

      • DoctorBob

        So you want to murder your children, YouKiddingMe? Got it.

      • Joe

        Regardles of gender, if any person is for abortion then he/she should have been aborted. If not, why not? If the proceedure of abortion is good enough for the unborn then it shoud have been good enough for them.

      • Bruce Ona

        You mean you believe women are more violent & murdering than males?
        Wow! No liberal woman for President!

    • john baptiste

      You are absolutely correct. Probably the same people who are pro-abortion are against the death penalty.

      • fs

        How about the anti abortionist for the death penalty?

        • Julie

          That’s right, because a psychotic individual who murders deserves to die–a baby doesn’t.

          • gruntled

            Suppose Adolf Hitler’s mother had gotten an abortion?

          • YouKiddingMe

            It just reminds me of something George Carlin said “Why, why, why, why is it that most of the people who are against abortion are people you wouldn’t want to fuck in the first place, huh? Boy, these conservatives are really something, aren’t they? They’re all in favor of the unborn. They will do anything for the unborn. But once you’re born, you’re on your own. Pro-life conservatives are obsessed with the fetus from conception to nine months. After that, they don’t want to know about you. They don’t want to hear from you. No nothing. No neonatal care, no day care, no head start, no school lunch, no food stamps, no welfare, no nothing. If you’re preborn, you’re fine; if you’re preschool, you’re fucked.”

          • Richard Saunders

            You really are clueless aren’t you? George Carlin takes a liberal position on most things. He’s brutal on religion and conservative republicans in general.

            On religion he said..

            When it comes to bullshit, big-time, major league bullshit, you have to stand in awe of the all-time champion of false promises and exaggerated claims, religion. No contest. No contest. Religion.

            On Conservatives.

            Once you leave the womb, conservatives don’t care about you until you reach military age. Then you’re just what they’re looking for. Conservatives want live babies so they can raise them to be dead soldiers.

            Carlin doesn’t vote one way or another because he believes voting, as he said, is the “illusion of choice.”

            Carlin was brought up Irish Catholic but grew into an outspoken atheist. Conservative? Not hardly.

      • Bruce Ona

        You need to learn justice 101.
        What did a baby do to deserve to get the death penalty? And yet you approve of murdering them. You have a very hard heart (like Hitler’s).
        What did a murdering rapist do to deserve the death penalty?
        If you do not know the difference, you are lost.
        Good news: Jesus came to save the lost-you and me. Just soften your heart, thank Him for dying on the cross for your sins- a sinless man dying for lost, sin sick humanity. Admit, like I did you are a sinner and you want forgiveness to avoid eternal separation from God in the Lake of fire. Trust in His finished work on the cross and His resurrection. Make Him 1st place in your life. Then I will see you in heaven with Him who will rule the earth with Justice.

    • gruntled

      Some of those “babies” would have certainly grown up to be criminals as well!
      Just imagine if every woman would have 6-8-10 children. Some of them might be geniuses- smart enough to figure out where to get the additional food and fresh water, not to mention room for all the new highways those additional people will demand.


      Andrew Cuomo is an example of the pathetic leadership of the American Communist Party and its god, Obama. Worse is this current Pope, and particularly the gutless American Catholic cardinals and bishops, who have lacked the courage to take on these political Catholics; from the debaucherous Kennedys, to Cuomo, to Pelosi, etc. All of them disciples of Satanic evil . All of them frequently making statements and voting against not just Catholic but moral teachings, and the Church does nothing to excommunicate them. The Church either cavorts with them by failing to excommunicate these Marxist prophets of unbelievers, or it fears the leftist-fascist government under which the dark shadow of the U.S. now exists. Why can a communist like Cuomo accuse those who are oppose to tri-mester abortions of extremism, because the media itself is as marxist and evil as those with whom they constantly protect, so that the evil extremism of the Left is treated as if it were mainstream. The Roman Catholic Church has not dealt with this problem from within, and has now been so weakened,that few Catholics take it seriously. The handful of devout Catholics and Evangelicals do not have the courage to stand out from the masses of church attending,non-believers. “I will spew you from my mouth” says the Lord of Christians in the last days, who know no more of the experience of a living Christ in their lives than the politicians from hell, who populate both political parties and lead this nation down the road of perdition. We are most truly in the last days, led by the demons of hell.

  • Paul Galinak

    How soon can you leave?

  • marilyn ryan

    It’s a shame God’s laws are disregarded by New Yorkers and Gov Cuomo

    • fs

      Doesn’t the bible say the soul enters the body on the first breath. I also believe it has some statements on not judging others and on not flaunting your religion in the political sphere, but that Jesus is just a liberal isn’t he

      • jason suggs

        How many of your children have you murdered?

      • Bruce Ona

        Actually it says God formed us while we were still in our Mother’s womb. And it says thou shalt not murder. And Jesus Christ my Lord says as you do it to the least of these you have done it unto me. And it says God cannot be mocked, you will reap what you sow. And Jesus said let the little children come unto Me and forbid them not for such is the Kingdom of Heaven.
        I do not think you are illiterate. I just think your heart is so self righteous & prideful you cannot recieve in your heart what it really says.

  • Amy

    I welcome Sean and his family to Florida….the sunshine state….not the over taxed state! Come to Orlando “The City Beautiful” :)

    • ? ANTHONY

      Take him. But then again, the people of Florida have already suffered enough with their governor.

      Hannity should go to Lower East Kabbiby, and stay there.

      • Bruce Ona

        Thank you Sean for standing up for the defenseless babies. You are a courageous man.
        Don’t let the liberal threats worry you. Their deeds will fall back on their own heads. God will reward them for how they treated defenseless humanity.

  • john baptiste

    Why would anyone live in a socialist state like New York, anyway?

  • j. stanley

    54 million “CDWs” (Children Developing in the Womb) murdered. Has anyone really crunched the numbers to ascertain what the cost is in lost tax revenue, in lost revenue to the social security system, in lost Gross Domestic Product figures?

    • gruntled

      LOST revenue? Are you serious? Did you calculate the savings to society in less welfare and fewer prisons?
      Are you suggesting that the USA is short of people? (What we ARE short of is jobs for the people we already have!)

      • Bruce Ona

        2 billion people can easily live in the United States. Liberals just want the land reserved for spotted owls & the like. Its humans they hate-thus they support abortion, Euthanasia, mercy killing, legalizing drugs which kill & death metal music that they worship. The bible says murderers will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

        • gruntled

          Easily? We don’t take care of those who are already here! Poverty and environmental degradation obviously are of no concern to you.


      I am pro-life. Do not make you pro-life argument on economic grounds. This is strictly a moral issue, and it is only on moral grounds that God expects us to defend this issue.

  • trent

    New Yorkers would say good riddance to bad rubbish. Let all the extremists leave–won’t be missed from New York. Doubt that Florida wants those extremists like Sarah Palin and Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh either. Instead of talking all the time and pretending that they are talking for all of America, they need to shut up and listen and they will find that they are in the minority.

    • http://yahoo marcia burris

      Faux news and glad he is leaving, hope Limbaugh is next.

    • Bruce Ona

      Actually you, like Hitler, are the extremist. Anyone who can kill a little baby sleeping securely in the Mother’s womb is an extremist. Sean stands up for life. You stand for death. You are extreme and evil.


      Trent, we have now heard from Sodom. Where is our speaker from Gomorrah, San Francisco?

  • john60

    They wouldn’t have to worry about me leaving the communist state of N.Y. where if you don’t agree with Dictator Cuomo,you don’t belong there.

    Evidently it’s about what he thinks,no one else.

  • Sally

    I don’t doubt that the liberals would approve of full term babies, at birth, being killed, AFTER they are born. Perhaps that will be next? Doesn’t place much value on human life, does it? Maybe we Americans are becoming more like the Muslim extremists?

    • Julie

      Horrifically enough, many babies ARE born live then killed outside the womb. Their little heads are ripped off,strangled, umbilical cords and penises torn off and buttocks sliced off (to ensure death by bleeding) or just left to die in the garbage. Doen’t that just make your heart ache?

  • Jeff

    Hannity is a huge liar so I seriously doubt he will move, just like Limbaugh didn’t move to Costa Rica like he said he would if Obama got re-elected. WHAAAA!

    • Bruce Ona

      Actually it is the babies crying Waaaay! And God hears their cries. He will quickly bring Justice to them and the wicked will be destroyed form the land and forever forgotten. Don’t go down with the wicked. repent and turn to the God of the founders of America. Jesus can fill you with love for the very people you hate including Sean & little babies.

  • Vicky

    Hey Sean,
    Need help packing!

  • e

    …hmm…why is that the natural father has absolutely no now legal say what so ever, as to whether his child lives or dies!

    Now imagine an equal rights amendment giving the natural father the right to decide that outcome! How may of those aborted children would be alive today?

    Sean, as a true conservative with a voice, I wonder, do you have the courage to be the harbinger for this cause and introduce the topic on your show?

  • Carolyn Putney

    If every pro-life person were able to leave New York, the economy of that state would surely suffer. In nearly every state, those of us who are against abortion are forced to pay for them, through our tax and/or insurance dollars. They would find that many pro-life people are conservatives who are responsible in other ways as well: financially sound, volunteer in their communities, donate to charities, etc. The absence of those things throughout the state would make an impact. I wonder just how well the State of New York and their beloved governor would fare then?

    • Julie

      That’s what I was just thinking. 41% of the population is a hell of a lot of pople.

  • lloyd osborne

    Do not let words push you out of a state that needs your insight. There are good people in New York and they need a voice too.

  • jon

    Conservatives say you MUST have the child under every circumstance, once the kid gets here they turn their back on the child.

    • DoctorBob

      It would be nice if you knew what you are blathering about before you blather, Jon.

      • gruntled

        @DoctorBob- Isn’t it Cons who are pushing RIGHT NOW to cut food stamps as well as other programs that benefit poor children???


          Grunted, I taught and administrated in inner-city schools for forty years. Government statistics demonstrated that 1/3rd of school lunches wind up in the trash. Many of our poorest students would not eat the breakfasts provided, but instead only wanted a bag of “Cheetos” and a Pepsi or Coke. All day long they do nothing, but eat junk food. Stop hiding political corruption and individual irresponsibility under the masquerade of misplaced compassion.

          • gruntled

            I’m waiting in xain to hear a SOLUTION for society’s ills from a Con. Slashing the “safety net” is about all we get from the radical right.

    Just don’t send that idiot down here to Tennessee, we have enough of them already !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • DoctorBob

      “Them?” Oh, you mean patriotic Americans who believe life is sacred, and who want government to answer to them, not the other way around? A shame YOU are not one of “them,” fool.

    • Elle Hoover

      I’m a native of Nashville, Tennessee and I resent your arrogance. You do not speak for Tennesseans. I for one would happily welcome Mr. Hannity at anytime. If you think that of Tennessee, why don’t you just move to New York and march the lock step with the rest of the socialist/communist that think LIKE you do! Good riddance! It kills me that liberals think if you don’t agree with them you’re evil, racist, terrorist, like starving babies, etc. ABSURD!

  • Julie

    I wish every abortion (especially late-term) supporter would read about the horrific things done to these babies (even after being born alive) and take a good long look at the pictures that are out there.

  • DoctorBob

    What exactly is an “extreme Conservative?” Define it, without ranting and blathering when you do. We want a balanced budget, we want government to live within its means, and we want government to be accountable to the people who elected them and who paid their salaries. If that’s “extreme,” then I’m thinking that everyone in the country should be an “extreme conservative.” Fact is, that’s just a pejorative label these Lefties use to beat up anyone who demands they be accountable and to spend our money wisely. So, I’ll come up with my OWN pejoratives for THEM: LUNATIC LIBERALS! And they do NO represent the ordinary Americans who elected them. They just use those ordinary Americans to be fleeced regularly. I say, OUT WITH THEM ALL! Put in people who WORK FOR US, not AGAINST us! Gee… now isn’t THAT an “extreme” concept?

    • gruntled

      The extreme social “conservative” wants to impose his/her moral views on everyone else.
      The extreme fiscal “conservative” basically says “Ive got mine, screw everybody else.”

  • MJ

    It is the woman choice! There are reasons for an abortion, some are right and some are wrong. But ultimately it is the woman’s choice to have an abortion. She is the one that will live with the memory and decision for her life.

    Do you want to go back to the time of back street abortions or “accidents” result in the lost of life. Do you want to go
    back to a time were women did not have control or rights over their own bodies.

    We need to compromise….there are two sides to everything and we need to meet in the middle.

    I am uncomfortable with government telling me what I need when it comes to me health or body. I understand that government is necessary but most of what is happening seems not to be working anymore or at least not working as it should or was intended.

    When I think about who the babies could have been you also have to look at the other side of who they could have been to….drug users, murders, rapes, abusers, and other worse people.

    There are always two sides…two ways things came turn out

    • Bruce Ona

      So you take the place of God and decide who lives & dies?
      And then you no doubt call pro-lifers judgemental?
      You are judgemental and dangerous to the life of children in the womb.
      You should support abortions for bald eagles and whales if you are so certain abortion is such a wonderful “choice”. Actually you are so full of fear of raising a child you have no room for love left in your heart.

  • http://FoxNews Don Hall Sr.

    When Jack Kevorkian aided a terminally ill man in taking his life he was convicted of murder, I am not condoning what Kevorkian did but is it any different than aborting a child? At least the suicide victim had a choice unlike the unborn child. Why wasn’t the abortionist charged with murder as well?

  • Howard Sterner

    Hey Sean you need to be killed.
