‘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.

Hillary Claims Facebook Conspiring To Re-Elect Trump

‘Authoritarian’ Zuckerberg is ‘Trumpian’

Conspiracy theorist Presidential failure Hillary Clinton declared this past weekend that she believes Facebook is conspiring to re-elect President Trump.

In an interview with Atlantic, Hillary proclaimed that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is an “authoritarian” who “intend[s] to reelect Trump.”

As evidence, Hillary pointed to Facebook leaving up a slowed-down video of Nancy Pelosi that someone uploaded to the platform.

“I said, ‘Why are you guys keeping this up? This is blatantly false. Your competitors have taken it down. And their response was, ‘We think our users can make up their own minds,'” Clinton said, adding that “They have, in my view, contorted themselves into making arguments about freedom of speech and censorship.”

Hillary was, knowingly or not, parroting comments made just hours earlier by Globalist influencer George Soros, who said “Facebook will work to re-elect Trump and Trump will protect Facebook.”

“It makes me very concerned about the outcome of 2020,” he said during an Open Society Foundation dinner at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

Soros described Trump as “the ultimate narcissist” and a “con man” who wants the world to “revolve around him.”

The two leftists’ claims are particularly laughable given that Facebook has taken to routinely censoring conservative posts and opinion en mass, while allowing leftists to weaponise the platform.

Hillary and Soros are also basing their claims on the fact that Facebook has refused to censor political ads, despite some claiming such posts have contained disputable claims. Yet, they fail to mention that Facebook is allowing such content from both sides of the political spectrum.

Americans Aren’t Interested in Trump’s Impeachment

If Google trends is anything to go by.

Published

on

Google Trends data illustrates how Americans aren’t really interested in the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

Mike Cernovich posted the search interest data for the keywords “impeach” and “impeachment,” showing interest drastically slipping from its December high.

“Friends (and foes), there are objective ways to measure the public’s interest in a subject like impeachment,” tweeted Cernovich. “You can see interest peaked (not to be confused with piqued) in December. Interest fell off a cliff, and here we are.”

Another graph shows that interest in impeachment was actually higher back in September last year than it is now.

Despite much hyperventilating by the media, the start of Trump’s Senate impeachment trial was watched by around 11 million viewers across 10 broadcast and cable television networks.

That’s down on the 13.8 million viewers who tuned in last November for the first day of the Congressional impeachment inquiry.

Perhaps most Americans understand that with virtually zero chance of Trump being impeached by the Senate, the whole charade is merely a show trial to try to keep a cloud over the president going into the 2020 campaign.

Trump Says He’d Love To Attend Senate Trial, “Sit right in front row and stare in their corrupt faces”

“Corrupt” Press have won Pulitzers for “Russian hoax”

President Trump declared Wednesday that he would love to attend the Senate impeachment trial and stare his accusers down.

Speaking from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Trump told a reporter “I’d love to go. Would that be great? Would that be beautiful?”

“Why don’t you go?” the reporter asked.

“I don’t know, I’d sort of love to sit right in the front row and stare in their corrupt faces. I’d love to do it.” Trump replied

“Why don’t you?” the reporter again asked.

“I don’t know. Don’t keep talking because I may— you may convince me to do it.” Trump replied, but acknowledging his lawyers wouldn’t love it.

The President then imagined ‘pencil neck’ Adam Schiff speaking at the hearing.

“He’ll stand, he’ll look at a microphone and he’ll talk like he’s so aggrieved,” he said, declaring Schiff to be a “major sleaze bag.”

Trump also had some choice words for the media, calling the press “partners” in the “Russian hoax”.

“If we could straighten out the press in our country, we would have a place that is so incredible.” Trump urged.

“The press is so dishonest, so corrupt. I read it all the time. I don’t mind bad stories. I deserve bad stories sometimes. But when I do something great,or good, let it be written about good! Same thing with other people.” the President added.

“The corruption in the media, as I call it, the fake news media is unbelievable and hopefully everybody is going to sort of learn a lesson. People got Pulitzer Prizes for their coverage of me. And it turned out they were totally wrong.” Trump continued.

The President described the impeachment effort as “a takedown attempt of a sitting president of the United States.”

“The Russian hoax is a terrible thing. The dossier was a phony deal, paid for by Hillary Clinton and the DNC. And used in the FISA courts totally illegally. It’s a terrible thing that happened.” Trump asserted.

The President also took a moment to slam Hillary Clinton, weighing in on the beef between the two time loser and Bernie Sanders.

“When she says nobody likes him, nobody likes her. That’s why she lost, I mean, nobody likes her. She had every advantage. She had this big machine behind her. She had Obama, she had everybody behind,” Trump said.

“She’s the one that people don’t like.” he added.
