Glenn Beck, in an open letter to Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Beck's website, The Blaze, demands to know whether his company and its money are still welcome in the state after Cuomo said "extreme" conservatives do not have a place in New York.

Cuomo on Friday said that the GOP has a problem with "themselves" and that if they are "right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay" and they are the "extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that's not who New Yorkers are."

Beck, founder and CEO of Mercury Radio, asked the governor in his letter whether he thinks there are two classes of citizens in the state.

"We are fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, entrepreneurs, dreamers, visionaries, hard workers, straight, gay, black, white, believers, non-believers, liberals and conservatives," Beck said. "More importantly than any one of these labels, we are decent and kind human beings, and upstanding, loyal and patriotic Americans."

Further, Beck said, conservatives don't see things as left and right but "as right and wrong." Mercury Radio creates jobs for hundreds of people while providing news, opinion and entertainment for millions of people, as well as a helping hand, Beck said.

"Are our contributions, tax dollars, and genuine goodness as citizens not welcome here? We respectfully request an answer on whether there are two classes of citizens," Beck wrote.

Further, Beck points out in his letter, the United States was built on the principle of robust free speech, and "when freedom of speech is chilled, we cannot openly express our ideas, and without competing ideas there can be only tyranny." He asked the governor whether he intends to "build a tyranny" over political matters.
