Previously on SBPDL: Is This the Reason New York City Is Ground Zero for Coronavirus Pandemic? Did Massive Chinese Lunar New Year Day Parade in Manhattan on Feb. 9th (“Be Strong Wuhan”) Help Spread the Chinese Virus?


Hard to tell if Governor Cuomo understands what he is admitting here… Diversity is not our strength. [Andrew Cuomo: NY Has 15 Times Coronavirus Cases of CA Because ‘We Welcome People’, Breitbart, March 25, 2020]:

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said Wednesday that the state was getting hit hardest in the United States because of their welcoming spirit.

Cuomo noted that New York had 15 times the coronavirus cases of California and other states and offered his opinion about why that was the case.

Cuomo on why New York is hit hardest by Coronavirus

— Joe Gabriel Simonson (@SaysSimonson) March 25, 2020

“Because we welcome people from across the globe,” he said. “We have people coming here, we have people who came here from China, who came here from Italy, who came here from all across the globe.”

Cuomo said that he believed that the virus was in New York City long before people even knew it was a problem.

“I had no doubt that the virus was here much earlier than we even know,” he said. “And I have no doubt that the virus was here much earlier than it was in any other state, because those people come here first.”

New York currently has 30,811 cases, California has 2,644 cases, Washington state has 2,404 cases and Massachusetts has 1,159 cases.

Cuomo added that New Yorkers lived “close to one another,” which was another reason the virus spread more quickly.

He cited the close quarters in which New Yorkers lived in their communities, restaurants, movie theaters, public transportation, that, made New Yorkers more vulnerable.

But he said that the greatest weakness of New Yorkers was also their greatest strength.

“Our closeness is what makes us special,” he said, noting that New Yorkers were more open, accepting and tolerant than the rest of the world.

“The closeness is that New York humanity that I think exists nowhere else,” he said.



Open borders.


This is how and why New York City is ground zero for one of the worst outbreaks of the Coronavirus (China Virus for those heathens uninterested in maintaining political correctness) in America.

Diversity is not our strength.

  1. I really enjoy a few eateries in midtown Manhattan and central park with a few other spots….otherwise the rest of the city is definitely forgettable.
    Even midtown has plenty of bums pissing on the sidewalk and begging for money that makes you want to leave town after a few hours. You have the new criminal justice reform there which certainly sets you up for robbery or violence now.
    Just a dump to steer clear of these days!

  3. the issue is that this is not that hard to solve. NYC can easily be surrounded and locked down due to geography, and all travel out can be halted. but they aren’t serious about this, so that hasn’t happened. the entire thing is full of shit Democrat liars complaining on television all day about the job that THEY screwed up.

    when there are 20,000 National Guard guys surrounding NYC like Escape From New York, and you can’t leave on a single bridge or tunnel, and all flights out of Laguardia and JFK are grounded, then i’ll accept that they’re serious.

    hilarious to hear New Yorkers complaining that they need more help, more money, more ventilators. what? all of a sudden they don’t want to bash us flyover country people anymore about how they’re so much smarter, so much richer, so much better? why don’t they just make more medical stuff if they’re so much smarter and richer? is it because NYC doesn’t produce a single thing of value? and that the rest of the country wouldn’t even notice if they disappeared?

    indeed, we’d be far better off if NYC disappeared. New York politicians were impeaching Trump and investigating his taxes just 1 month ago.

    West Virginia is one of the least ‘diverse’ states and it was the last state to report a case of Wuhan flu. The case was reported in one of the DC facing exosuburbs the state now hosts. Elsewhere places like the Great Plain states have few cases and dollars to donuts those that they do have sprang up along the interstate highways that cross them and brought infected travelers from our diverse coastal cities to gas up and eat at the highway interchanges. Some poor waitress or gas station clerk caught it from an urban coastal city dweller and took it home as a ‘souvenir.

    Plagues and pandemics have always followed the wandering travelers who just pass through the small towns and villages of the heartland. They are created in the urban petri dishes that breed disease.

  8. Understand that diversity is big business. Our enemies know it’s a poison but getting paid is getting paid.

    Declare war on diversity, wherever you are, however you can.

  9. “Because we welcome people from across the globe,” he said. “We have people coming here, we have people who came here from China, who came here from Italy, who came here from all across the globe.”

    But not in the Governor’s Mansion. No, no, you can’t just walk in there. A third worlder can’t walk up and cough in his limousine. His family will never be forced to live an work cheek and jowl with the great unwashed.

  11. On the subject of “dieversity is our strength”, looks like Baltimore’s population has now dropped below the 600,000 mark.

    Sorry, this link has a limit on free articles, but I’m having trouble finding “free” sources…I guess it’ll hit Yahoo news eventually. So, how’s that diversity working out, again?

    On the Coronavirus front though, I’m surprised that Baltimore hasn’t really blown up with cases yet. The most recent totals I saw were yesterday, putting it at 72 cases. Out of roughly 593,000 people, that’s actually not that bad. For comparison, Prince George’s County, with about 900,000 people, had 101 cases. Montgomery County seems to be Ground Zero, with 164 cases, but a population of a bit over 1,000,000. Baltimore County was also fairly high, with 81 cases, and a population of around 824,000.

    Many blacks are afraid of wild animals and the outdoors. I knew a guy who used to have a charity that took inner city kids from Chicago hiking and camping. He said these were kids who grew up with shootings, violence, drugs, and weren’t afraid of that, but would be scared shitless at night hearing frogs croaking and crickets chirping.

    That’s one reason I’m not too worried about a hood rat invasion out here.  There are a handful of Africans here but not a critical mass for a chimp out even if most of them weren’t here to get away from the ‘hood themselves.

    Unfortunately, the local park where I hime the canyons are attracting more and more diversity. What used to be a pleasant experience a few years ago now attracts mestizos with the accompanying litter and noise from their yammering and iphones. Even a few negroes are showing up.

    OT: Yet another reason to avoid signing up for today’s US military. At the link you’ll see the unit insignia for the 435th Security Forces Squadron, essentially a military police unit of the USAF on jump status (hence the parachute) based in Germany. Note the unit motto on the upper tab of the patch: “Strength in Diversity.” See for yourself:

    Units have had a wide variety of nicknames and mottoes over time, often referencing previous battles in which the units fought with distinction. This one, however, just isn’t inspiring in the least. Maybe I need to be a SJW to get that inspiration, and if SJWs are what they’re looking for, then no one in his right mind should be a part of this madness.

    Here’s the future: out in western Jersey, there’s plenty of places for hiking and such. Lots of open space ( we try to make you all think it’s refineries and negros so you stay away) but a younger friend who lives out there says they in the summer, the rangers close the hiking trails – guess why????

    If you guessed ‘Dindu incursion’ give yourself a high five.

    It seems the blacks and browns DO congregate in the wood but not like in the Audi commercials. No kayaks or glampers … just condoms and cheap beer.

    To the extent that the park service shuts them down.

    I guess the theory is ‘anywhere is better than home’.

    New York politicians were impeaching Trump and investigating his taxes just 1 month ago.

    Earlier this week, Mayor Di Blasio was apoplectic. “New York City is Donald Trump’s home town!” he sputtered. “And this is how he treats us? He doesn’t want to lift a finger to help us.”

    The NPS does advise being very wary of bison. They aren’t domesticated herd animals, they are wild animals.

    Florida has posted National Guard units at its airports to screen for New Yorkers and New Jersites attempting to escape THEIR infected neighbors. So far 3400 have been apprehended and put in 14 day quarantine or sent back.Today the state police are stopping Louisiana tagged cars to screen them.

    This is going to be a growing problem. Look at where the outbreaks are. Detroit, New Orleans, Chicago. See what is happening? Negro run cities are going to scarf up ALL the stocks of medical supplies and nothing will be left for white America when the virus finally spreads out of the diseased inner cities.

    Cuomo is utterly unelectable, just like the rest of the liberal field of candidates.

    He’s experienced and wily enough to know that fact. Its unclear if Bloomberg knew that fact of himself.

    Due to the bedrock of its three hundred year old founding cultures, The United States will only elect a certain profile:

    absent a major terrorist event and eight years of subsequent national PTSD. And absent two wars with the press taking on the task of framing a twice over Ivy President to seem like trailer trash, the latter toward the end of electing someone who has mocha skin but otherwise mostly fits the profile. A culmination of events that won’t be reproduced in any predictable future. Especially now that the press has lost the confidence of the populace.

    Cuomo is entirely too Italian to be elected in this country, too coastal, and looks (and talks) like a Shetl Jew to boot. Root culture always asserts itself in the preferences of large numbers of people. In the case of the United States in 2020 and even in “secular” blue state culture, it’s still Anglo-German and Christian (thank goodness).

    Whither the diversity ideology? In 10 years, will people still be expressing with enthusiasm that diversity is our strength? Lately, it seems to be increasingly expressed with a sigh.

    Hopefully, someday, we can turn this around. The Danish leftist prime minister (a 41-year old woman elected in 2019) is recommending they repatriate their diversity and allow only Europeans to immigrate.
