Newtown A ‘Little Convenient Massacre’ For NY Gov. Cuomo Says Gun-Loving Columnist
Frederic Dicker a New York Post columnist and radio host called the Newtown tragedy a “little convenient massacre” in that it led to gun legislation favored by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. This, understandably, outraged families in that community.
The families joined gun-control advocates in demanding an apology from Post state editor and conservative political columnist Fredric Dicker, who made the comment Monday on his WGDJ Talk AM 1300 radio broadcast from Albany…
The remark came while Dicker was discussing Gov. Cuomo’s State of the State address with political satirist Randy Credico. The subject turned to the governor’s SAFE Act gun-control legislation, passed in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting.
“That was his anti-gun legislation, which he had promised not to do, but then he had a little convenient massacre that went on in Newtown, Conn., and all of a sudden there was an opportunity for him,” Dicker said.
