    Fake in terms of your words.

    ‘Beat them at the polls’ is not ‘genocide’ and ‘Fredo’ was an intended Italian slur to get a result used by a trump supporter that even Hannity said did not require an apology by the target of the slur.

    So... racism again? Not so fast.

    "Fredo" wasn't seen as an Italian slur on Chris Cuomo's own show when Ana Navaro referred to Donald Trump Jr. as "Fredo". So where did it all start? Rush Limbaugh and the golden microphone.

    RUSH: So let’s start here first with Daily Mail TV, the syndicated tabloid TV show. The host here is the noted journalist and former New York Giants backup quarterback Jesse Palmer. And he put a reporter on the case out there, Chris Spargo, and here’s how it sounded.

    PALMER: Besides Cuomo being Italian, is there any other reason why that guy could have decided to call him “Fredo” in the first place?

    SPARGO: Well, the clip was originally posted by a man who was said to be an avid listener of conservative pundit Rush Limbaugh’s radio show, where the host often refers to Cuomo as “Fredo.”

    RUSH: Right, but that’s as far as it went. “Oh, so Limbaugh did it. Oh, well, that explains it; Limbaugh did it.” Now we move on to Inside Edition — I lose track of the names of these shows. Is Entertainment Tonight still on? Does anybody still know? Is Entertainment Tonight still on? Did you know Mary Hart used to host that show way, way back? Anyway, this is Inside Edition and this is some reporter, I don’t know his name, talking about the Fredo meltdown video yesterday.

    UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: Cuomo first got the nickname “Fredo” from right-wing radio show host Rush Limbaugh.

    RUSH ARCHIVE: Fredo Cuomo is the co-host of CNN’s New Day.

    RUSH: Let me just take another brief moment to explain where this started. It all really started in 2016 when Fredo went to Cuba. He went to Cuba on assignment, CNN, to go down there and discuss and learn how great the communist revolution in Cuba was doing. And Fredo was dissatisfied with what he saw. He was very unhappy with what he saw. And it was a few months after that that I began to use the term Fredo.

    It had nothing to do with ethnicity. It has nothing to do with the mob. Has nothing to do with the Mafia, has nothing to do with any of that. It has to do with what Fredo is. Fredo Corleone was who? He was the black sheep of the Corleone family. He had Sonny out there murdering people and getting murdered. He had Michael taking over the whole family, the real bad guy, who didn’t want any part of the family at first, nor his dad.

    And then Fredo. Fredo wanted to be accepted and loved by everybody, but just didn’t have the brain matter to pull it off. Nothing ethnic about this at all. So let’s put this to bed once and for all. Grab audio sound bite No. 22. March 21st, 2016. CNN show called New Day. The co-host is Alisyn Camerota. She’s asking Fredo about what he’s wearing, his attire while he covered Obama’s trip to Cuba.

    Camerota said, “Fredo, we can’t help –” Well, she didn’t say Fredo, she called him Chris. So I guess I should stick to the transcript. “Chris, we can’t help but notice your culturally appropriate garb that you’re wearing. Tell us the history of your shirt.” And here is what Chris Cuomo, now Fredo, said. Listen carefully here. You shouldn’t have to listen very carefully, but actually focus on this for a second.

    CUOMO: My guayabera? This shirt belonged to my father. It was given to him by Fidel Castro. It marked conversations going on decades ago that were the same as those today. The concern was the freedom of the people. What is the point of this communist regime if it is not to truly make everyone equal, not at the lowest level, not by demoralizing everyone, but lifting everyone up. My father, generations of politicians have been fighting this. So I wear this shirt as a reminder of that.

    RUSH: That’s all it took. That is one of the greatest misunderstandings of communism and it explains a lot, because I think a lot of people on the left have an egalitarian view of communism. (impression) “It’s based on equality and sameness and fairness and social justice,” and all this “woke” garbage going on.

    Communist is a tyranny. It kills people. Communists build walls around their country to keep people in. People get put in jail in communist countries for what they think if it’s outside what the state permits.

    There’s no equality.

    There’s no sameness.

    There’s no prosperity.

    There isn’t any increasing standard of life.

    The leaders have everything, and the population basically exists in a meager way with no hope. They literally have no hope. They have no freedom. They have literally no freedom whatsoever. They speak to each other in whispers in their bathrooms, hoping the state does not overhear what they say. For Chris Cuomo to be down in Cuba and to be upset that the communists are screwing it up because they’re not elevating people?

    “What is the point of this communist regime if it is not to truly make everyone equal, not at the lowest level, not by demoralizing everyone, but lifting everyone up?” Where in the world does that happen? Lifting everybody up does not happen in socialism. It does not happen in communism. But you know this explains a lot to me. This is a guy who is Fredo, and that’s when I began to use the name because, folks, this is just… (big sigh) I’ll be charitable.

    This is just as incorrect and wrong as it can be, and yet this guy has a prime time show on a nationwide cable news network! And he doesn’t have the slightest idea what communism is, which begs the question: How many of the rest of the people in the Drive-By Media don’t really know what it is despite its presence all over the world and despite the evidence? It’s a legitimate question, because these people are sympathetic to communism regimes. They love Chavez. They love the old Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev and Khrushchev, Yuri Andropov, all of them.

    They love Castro, and I’ve been trying to figure out, “What is the romantic attachment to these killer despot tyrants that all of these leftists have?” I’ve come to the conclusion… I could be wrong about this, but what it is, is almost an envy or a jealousy of the power that they have, and the promise. They live in a world where communism promises the same for everybody. It promises equality. This is the great deceit of it all. Communism is not anything anybody should want to aspire to.

    Nobody should want to live in a communist regime or country! All you need to do is talk to people who have, who have escaped. People die trying to get out of those places. Yet here was Fredo down in Cuba, and he found exactly what communism provides. He found poverty. He found hopelessness. He found people with absolutely no future. He found people that did not have any way to enjoy life. And he’s blaming the communists for screwing it up, not realizing that that’s what communism is. So that’s the origin of the term, for me, “Fredo.”


    It has nothing to do with the mob. It has nothing to do with the N-word. It has nothing to do with ethnicity in any shape, matter, or form. It has to do with sheer ignorance. All right. I got that out of the way. Now everybody understands. I doubt this will get covered beyond this program today, but there was a lot of attention. Since the entertainment shows are looking at it, that means a broad-based demographic swath of the country was exposed to this that otherwise wouldn’t have been.
    Hope that helps separate fact from fiction and slows the jump to that flaccid charge of racism.

    So what you are telling me is you somehow read racism from my written words of Italian slur.
    That’s an interesting leap considering I never considered Italians as being a race.

    And then you quote the guy Rush who takes credit for making up the Fredo slur on the guy. Ok. I don’t tend to listen to rush.

    While I appreciate your attempt to learn me on this racism tangent, it was still a slur and Hannity still said cuomo shouldn’t give apologies and I still don’t agree with tucker’s take to which I was responding.

    It isn't an Italian slur either. Its about being the black sheep of the family. Unless when the term was pointed to Trump Jr. on Cuomo's own show, he thought the Trumps were Italian.

    For the record, it was used four times on Cuomo's own show without him batting an eye.

    Selective outrage.

    So says rush.

    I see you now have backed off of the racism call out.

    And to that I say is it selective outrage or a reaction to intent by cuomo?
    Who cares? hannity says no foul. And I say no genocide to tucker.

    It’s not about what is said it’s about who said it. That’s a worn out old trick the democrats have been using since Watergate...

    a vociferous campaign against alleged communists in the US government and other institutions carried out under Senator Joseph McCarthy in the period 1950–54. Many of the accused were blacklisted or lost their jobs, although most did not in fact belong to the Communist Party.
    a campaign or practice that endorses the use of unfair allegations and investigations.
    "he practiced McCarthyism long before there was a McCarthy"
    Does that sound familiar? Could it be linked to what we see on a daily basis coming from the radical left? My theory is it goes way back to the McCarthy Era. The radical leftist of that time like McCarthyism so much they started doing the same thing. It’s been passed down from generation to generation and now it’s an excepted political practice. It’s everywhere you even see it in Western Europe, every college and university, DNC, MSM, Hollyweird, you name it’s there... It goes hand in hand with communism and fascism... Racist... Rolleyes...
