‘Fredo’ is NOT the Italian Version of the N-Word

It isn’t an “ethnic slur.”

Published

on

CNN host Chris Cuomo faces humiliation after getting in a confrontation with a Trump fan who called him ‘Fredo’, with Cuomo claiming that ‘Fredo’ is the Italian version of the n-word.

Newsflash, Chris; It isn’t.

The viral video shows Cuomo embarking on a foul-mouthed tirade during which he threatens to throw the man down the stairs while insisting that ‘Fredo’ is an ethnic slur.

“My name is Chris Cuomo. I’m an anchor on CNN. Fredo was from The Godfather. He was the weak brother. And they use it as an Italian aspersion. Are any of you Italian? Are you Italian? It’s a f***ing insult to your people. It’s an insult to your f***ing people. It’s like the n-word for us,” Cuomo says.

“You’re going to have a f***ing problem. I’ll f***ing ruin your s**t. I’ll f***ing throw you down the stairs like a f***ing punk,” Cuomo adds.

CNN subsequently defended Cuomo, with a spokesman stating, “Chris Cuomo defended himself when he was verbally attacked with the use of an ethnic slur in an orchestrated setup. We completely support him.”

However, as virtually everyone on Twitter, including numerous Italians, pointed out, ‘Fredo’ is not and has never been the Italian version of the n-word.

“Take it from an actual Italian, “Fredo” is not racist against Italians. The Godfather has all Italian characters and one loser brother is called Fredo. That doesn’t amount to the “n word”. How is this even an issue?” remarked Alessandra Bocchi.

“Did @ChrisCuomo just say that “Fredo” is to Italians what the N word is to black people?” asked Katrina Pierson. “The N word is a dehumanizing word used against blacks who endured years of oppression. Fredo is a term from The Godfather, referring to the dumb brother. Equivocating the two is pure racism.”

“I don’t believe I have to say this but: Fredo is NOT an anti-Italian slur. It means a stupid guy who doesn’t know he’s stupid. Frequently used on non-Italians like Don Jr,” said Jeet Heer.

“Hey @ChrisCuomo, take it from me, “Fredo” isn’t the N word for Italians, it just means you’re the dumb brother,” tweeted Donald Trump Jr.

“So @ChrisCuomo says that “Fredo”— a character on The Godfather— is the same as the n-word? Equating the two is the very definition of white privilege and diminishes the generations of hate African Americans have had to endure,” said Steven Cheung.

“I am an Italian-American and “Fredo” is honestly not the term that I would consider to be the most insulting against Italians,” tweeted Madison Gesiotto.

On another point, Cuomo has now ensured that the nickname ‘Fredo’ will follow him around for life.

The memes are also pouring in thick and fast.

ABC Attempts to Pass Off Gun Range Footage as Combat Footage From Syria to Blame Trump

For “atrocities” as a result of him pulling out U.S. troops.

Published

on

ABC News attempted to pass off footage from a 2017 gun range show as evidence of Turkey bombing Kurdish civilians in order to blame President Trump.

Yes, really.

The ABC News anchor presenting the footage comments that it shows “the situation rapidly spiraling out of control in northern Syria” after Trump ordered U.S. forces to leave.

The anchor accuses Trump of “effectively abandoning America’s allies in the fight against ISIS,” before discussing the video.

“This video right here appearing to show Turkey’s military bombing Kurd civilians in a Syrian border town,” he states before mentioning “horrific reports of atrocities committed by Turkish-backed fighters.”

The chyron accompanying the footage reads “SLAUGHTER IN SYRIA.”

However, the video (original posted here and below) is from a 2017 gun range show entitled ‘Knob Creek night shoot 2017’.

The footage clearly shows an audience watching the show and is obviously not combat footage from Syria.

ABC News responded by making their original erroneous report featuring the footage private on YouTube.

They literally passed off an old video of a gun range show as combat footage to blame Trump for “atrocities.”

Will anyone face any consequences for this disgraceful example of fake news?

Kurt Eichenwald Posts 1983 Image of Child Earthquake Victims to Bash Trump Over Syria Pullout

Journalist fails to clarify or delete fake news tweet.

Published

on

Journalist and New York Times bestselling author Kurt Eichenwald posted an image showing child victims from a 1983 earthquake in attempt to pass off the photo as a consequence of President Trump pulling U.S. forces out of Syria.

“Child murder? Not a problem for @GOP anymore. Its a feature. Dont you complicit killers ONCE say “family values,” Eichenwald tweeted yesterday.

However, the photograph, which shows a woman crying over the corpses of five children, was taken in 1983 after an earthquake in Turkey’s eastern Erzurum province.

The image is one of several dubious photographs to have been erroneously presented as evidence that Trump is complicit or responsible for war crimes.

Eichenwald has not deleted the tweet despite its completely fraudulent nature and hundreds of respondents pointing that out in response.

The journalist was previously embroiled in controversy after he unwittingly shared a screenshot from his computer showing that he had looked up tentacle porn.

Turkey launched Operation Peace Spring last week in what it claims is an effort to eliminate terrorists and secure Turkey’s border while aiding the safe return of Syrian refugees to Syria.

Project Veritas Tapes Feature Zucker Admitting CNN Only Covering Trump Impeachment For Ratings

Bombshell revelations set to drop soon.

Published

on

Project Veritas is about to release bombshell recordings of CNN President Jeff Zucker admitting that the network is only covering Trump’s impeachment for ratings with no expectation he will actually be impeached.

The new tapes are about to drop today with James O’Keefe promising the revelations will be the “story of the year.”

In the tapes, Zucker orders CNN staffers to ensure blanket coverage of attempts to impeach President Trump simply for ratings, admitting that the impeachment process itself will go nowhere.

The insider who leaked the recordings has been collecting information for 6 months and is still secretly embedded within the news network.

He has collected hundreds of hours of recordings which are so voluminous, Project Veritas is still sifting through them.

James O’Keefe will appear on the show today in the second hour to discuss the bombshell new tapes.

O’Keefe teased the release of the tapes earlier by leaking audio of Zucker discussing them.

“Let’s just do our jobs and not worry about it, okay?” Zucker tells staffers.
