It’s rude and in extremely poor taste to publicly harass/call people names that you disagree with politically. Yes, Democrats and their followers do it all the time and it is applauded by the media. It is in especially poor taste to do it when the person is enjoying a night out with his wife and daughter.
The man that called Cuomo ‘Fredo’ was wrong to harass him while in public with or without his wife and daughter. And I agree with Cuomo by standing up for himself. Most men would do the same thing. We have the right in America to have varied opinions without being harrasses for them. TAKE NOTE DEMOCRATS! All Americans have that right, not just the Socialists.
Again, Democrats and their followers harass people buying gas, going to movies, eating dinner, walking down the street. They “doxx” people on a regular basis. They beat them with truncheons and baseball bats (Antifa). Dems harass and commit violence on people they disagree with politically. It IS what they do.
What I disagree with is not only about the moron that harassed him so much as it is that Cuomo just had to go to the good old Democrat “racist” mantra. Everything is racist to Democrats. Just disagreeing with them and using a term from The Godfather movie is now racist? Not hardly.
Now let’s get to poor little Chris “Fredo” Cuomo. Even though he’s as tough as a box of wet cornflakes and as sharp as Joe Biden on a good day, he goes off the deep end when a man calls him “Fredo”. And with his low IQ, Cuomo contends that it is a racial slur, not just referencing the “dumb brother” in The Godfather, which is what everyone knows it really is.
It’s odd that this term “Fredo” has been in use since the first Godfather movie, and never has anyone considered its use a racist term. Until the hyper-sensitive mental midget Chris ‘Fredo’ Cuomo came along that is.
The brouhaha started when a man called Cuomo “Fredo”, a passing reference to the stupid brother in the iconic movie series “The Godfather”. I mean it’s typecasting, right? Stupid brother in a movie, stupid Cuomo in real life? Same same.
And Cuomo has called Trump and other conservatives the most vile and vitriolic names repeatedly for 2+ years. Has anyone called him out?
But the selective moral outrage and the use, again, of the term racist when nothing is racist is beyond the pale. Everything is now racist. Pistachio ice cream? RACIST! Eating tacos? RACIST! Green grass? RACIST! Hot water? RACIST!
But his “selective moral outrage” is outrageous considering that Cuomo referred to himself as “Fredo” in an interview with Curtis Sliwa in January of 2010, and he was smiling and joking about it. Nobody called that racist.
So has anyone else ever referred to another human being as “Fredo” before Cuomo’s turn? It seems as if it’s been used hundreds of times. But never was it called “racist”, until Cuomo decided to change the definition of “racist”, i.e. anyone that calls him anything other than his given name. He wouldn’t like us very much then, as we have several names for him.
Here are some samples of others that have called people “Fredo”;
CNN Hardball host Chris “Thrill Up My Leg” Matthews called Donald Trump Jr. the “Fredo-like son” of the First Family. Nobody called that racist.
“Daddy [President Donald Trump] kept Fredo back home. So who cares what Donald Trump Jr. says?” Ana Navarro, a Republican strategist, said in January 2019. Nobody called that racist.
CNN Hardball host Chris Matthews said this in October of 2017:
“You know who Trump sounds like when he says he’s smart? Fredo from The Godfather.” Nobody called that racist.
CNN Hardball host Chris Matthews has called Paul Ryan “Fredo”. He’s called Jared Kushner “Fredo”. He called Jeff Sessions “Fredo”. Nobody called any of those incidents racist.
Joy Reid opined: “Dang. Trump Aides. Russia Flap Proves Don Jr. Is the ‘Fredo’ of the First Family. Nobody called that racist.
Cher called Susan Collins “Fredo”: “SenatorSusan Collins is like Fredo to Michael. SheBetrayed Us….She has No Character.I will never think of her again….unless it’s to Support her opponent…& See Her sail off to TRUMP RETIREMENT TOWER SIBERIA. Nobody called that racist or ignorant. Cher can sing but she doesn’t know how to use the punctuation, capitalization, etc.
Sawyer Hackett said this about Julian Castro: Showing off his movie buff cred with this Godfather reference on obstruction of justice. “The fact that [Trump] was Fredo and not Michael—and nobody respected him enough to carry out his orders, doesn’t absolve him.” Nobody called that racist.
George Takei: “We should stop calling junior Don. We should start calling him Fredo.” Nobody called that racist.
Alec Baldwin: “Must be tough for Trump. He’s got two sons and they’re both Fredo.” Nobody called that racist.
Dan Pfeiffer: “The whole Trump saga is like the Godfather but if all of the characters were Fredo”. Nobody called that racist.
Alec Baldwin: “That lying, thieving, silver (plated) spooner Donald Trump Jr. wants to lecture u on patriotism. I want 2 challenge u, Fredo Trump, 2 a contest. A televised quiz on the history of the US Constitution. C’mon! You’re so smart. You’re so tough. You’re such a great American. Bring it”. Nobody called that racist.
The Boston Globe: “Is Donald Trump Jr. our era’s Fredo Corleone”? Nobody called that racist.
I could list another 200 instances of people calling other people “Fredo”, and it’s always directed at them as being the “stupid” brother, or the less intelligent family member. Never once was it used as a racial slur, and never has it been considered a racial slur, until now.
Yet when a man called Chris Cuomo ‘Fredo’, Cuomo went ballistic:
“No, punk-ass bitches from the right call me ‘Fredo.’ My name is Chris Cuomo. I’m an anchor on CNN,” a heated Cuomo responded. “‘Fredo’ was from ‘The Godfather.’ He was a weak brother and they use that as an Italian slur- are any of you Italian?… It’s a fucking insult to your people. It’s an insult to your fuckin’ people. It’s like the n-word for us. Is that a cool fucking thing?”
After the man sarcastically told him, “You’re a much more reasonable guy in person than you seem to be on television,” Cuomo reacted, “If you want to play, we’ll fucking play.”
“If you’ve got something to say about what I do on television, then say it, but you don’t have to call me a fuckin’ insult,” Cuomo continued.
“Hey man, listen, I don’t want any problems,” the man, who appears to be holding the camera from below, told Cuomo.
“Well, you’re gonna have a big fuckin’ problem,” Cuomo shot back.
“You’re gonna have a fucking problem, I’ll fucking ruin your shit, I’ll fucking throw you down these stairs like a fucking punk,” Cuomo says after the man asks what he is going to do about the situation.
The man, who has been described on social media as a “Trump supporter,” repeatedly claimed he thought Cuomo’s name was Fredo, which the anchor responded by calling him a “liar” and told him to “own what you said” and “stand up like a man.”
Firstly, calling someone “Fredo” when their name is Chris is not racist. That is absurd and only reinforces the weakness of the entire Democrat platform this election cycle. FYI Lefty’s/Socialists: Is calling Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta “Lady Gaga” racist? It’s not her real name, so it must be!
They’ve got nothing to run on except to claim that everything anyone on the right does or says is racist, racist, racist, racist, racist, racist, racist and racist. And if it doesn’t seem to be racist, it IS racist! So there!
Here is Fredo Cuomo cursing up a storm. Note: We do NOT bleep out his curse words. He owns them for eternity.
Everything is RACIST now as the Left has nothing to campaign on. The economy is humming, taxes are low, inflation is almost non-existent, the housing market is jumping, crime is down (among those of us on the right that is), and the Left is PISSED!
Hey Fredo Cuomo, grow a pair buddy. You’ve been around the sissy boys at CNN too long it seems. You’re turning into an extremely sensitive sissy boy.
On that note, we’ve wasted enough space on the idiot Chris “Fredo” Cuomo.
