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

It isn’t an “ethnic slur.”

Published

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.

Yet Another Unseen Photo of Justin Trudeau Wearing Blackface Emerges

Clearest example yet.

Published

on

Yet another photo of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wearing blackface has emerged – with the latest example being the clearest yet.

Trudeau has appeared in public wearing blackface on at least three separate occasions, one when he was a teacher and one when he was a student, as well as at a 2001 event when he dressed up in an Aladdin costume.

The latest example is from the 2001 event at the West Point Grey Academy, when Trudeau was 29-years-old.

Unlike the original black and white image that emerged from this event, which was first released in 2019, this one is in glorious full color and shows the Canadian leader sticking out his tongue, apparently enjoying the moment.

After the last controversy two years ago, Trudeau responded by saying he “deeply, deeply” regretted wearing blackface and admitted it was racist.

This led many of his critics to note how many of the most woke people in contemporary politics espouse such beliefs partly because they are compromised and guilty about previous behavior.

For the second time in two years, Canadians are heading to the polls to vote in an early general election.

Despite recent polls showing a statistical tie between Trudeau’s Liberals and the Conservatives, the result will likely see Trudeau forming another minority government, rendering whole exercise rather meaningless.

DC and New York Hit With Bomb Scares Within a Week of DHS Threat Bulletin

Feds warned of anti-government attacks.

Less than a week after the Department of Homeland Security issued a bulletin saying that anti-government extremists angry at COVID measures could be preparing attacks, DC and New York were both hit with bomb scares.

Last Friday, the DHS warned that there was a “heightened” risk of attacks carried out by domestic extremists motivated by their opposition to lockdown measures and anti-government sentiment.

Earlier today, a man from North Carolina parked a truck outside the Library of Congress on Capitol Hill and began telling authorities that the vehicle contained an explosive device.

The man began filming a Facebook livestream explaining how he was a an ex-serviceman, but the social media site quickly removed the video.

In a video of the man’s statements posted to Twitter, the suspect rambles about wanting to speak to Joe Biden while threatening, “If you shoot me, 2 and a half blocks are going with me.”

Police apparently know the identity of the suspect but don’t know his motive, although he reportedly said he is “ready to die for the cause.”

According to Andrea Mitchell, the man has a criminal history and has expressed “anti-government views.”

Meanwhile, New York’s Times Square has also been evacuated after an object resembling a “cookie tin” was thrown at people in Father Duffy Square.

In light of the bomb threat in DC, authorities chose to lock down the area and told people to stay away.

Although the bomb threat in New York looks likely to be harmless, the situation in DC is precarious and ongoing.
