‘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.

New Zealanders Face 5 Years in Jail For Not Handing in Banned Firearms

Report shows gun owners giving up their guns.

Published

on

Following a ban on virtually all semi-automatic firearms, New Zealanders face 5 years in jail if they refuse to hand them in.

A France 24 report on the government’s new buyback scheme showed a line of gun owners wilfully giving up their guns in response to the Christchurch massacre earlier this year.

This despite the fact that the shooter himself said in his own manifesto that provoking mass gunfiscation was one of his intended goals. Mission accomplished.

Since the buyback scheme began, 19,000 firearms have been handed in. Most of the guns seen being handed in looked like ordinary rifles, not AR-15s.

Inspector Terry Van Dillen said he “accepted” that some people would be emotional giving up their guns due to them having been handed down by families for generations.

I’m sure any potential future mass shooters are gleefully handing in their firearms to police as I write this.

New Zealand’s gang members even publicly announced they would refuse to hand in any of the “banned” firearms.

Disarming responsible people and making them easier targets for actual criminals.

Genius idea.

“The left tries to threaten, bully, intimidate Americans into submission”

During a rally in New Mexico Monday night, President Trump tore into the left over the trend of ‘cancel culture’, saying that leftists are obsessed with bullying everyday Americans into submission.

“The left tries to threaten, bully, intimidate Americans into submission,” Trump said.

“They use Democrat prosecutors and congressional committees whenever they can… to demean you, to libel you. They try to blacklist, coerce, cancel or destroy anyone who gets in their way.” the President added.

Trump referred directly to the New York Times running another story alleged sexual misconduct by Brett Kavanaugh which was based on pure conjecture.

“They have to change their ways,” he continued. “They wrote a story about somebody that said she doesn’t remember this.” he added, referring to the ‘accuser’ who admitted that she didn’t recall the incident.

The Times’ was forced to make a major revision to the story.

“Do you see — the Democrats are calling for his resignation. They’re calling for his impeachment, and the woman involved said she doesn’t know anything. So the New York Times had to put out a major apology, and they had to change their story … and they still want him to be impeached!” Trump proclaimed.

“I call for the resignation of everybody at The New York Times involved in the Kavanaugh smear story, and while you’re at it, the Russian witch hunt hoax, which is just as phony a story. ” the President continued.

“They’ve taken the old Grey Lady, so prestigious, and broken her down, destroyed her virtue, and ruined her reputation. She can never recover, and will never return to greatness under current management. The Times is dead, long live the New York Times.” Trump further declared, echoing comments he made on Twitter earlier in the day.

Ted Cruz Slams PolitiFact For Claiming Beto’s Plan to ‘Take the Guns’ Was False

Fact checking the fact checkers.

Ted Cruz slammed fact checking website PolitiFact for previously claiming that Beto O’Rourke’s plan to “take our guns” was false following Beto’s assertion last night that, “Hell yeah, we’re going to take your AR-15!”

Back in March, PolitiFact “fact checked” a lyric in a Ted Cruz primary campaign song which proclaimed Beto “wants to take our guns.”

PolitiFact reported that Beto had “not called…for government agents to take guns from law-abiding residents.”

However, during last night’s Democratic debate Beto did precisely that.

“Hell yeah, we’re going to take your AR-15!” Beto proclaimed.

“Just a reminder, when I said it, PolitiFact (a wholly-owned subsidiary of the DNC) rated “Beto wants to take our guns” as FALSE. Maybe they should buy one of his new t-shirts,” tweeted Cruz.
