"Fredo" Is a Racist Term Unless the Left Uses It, Including Chris Cuomo's Guests, Then It's Fine

“It’s okay when we do it” is the unofficial motto of the left. I’ve said it once before, but it bears repeating now.

In the wake of CNN’s Chris Cuomo flipping out over someone labeling him as “Fredo,” the left rushed to his defense by referring to the name as “racist against Italians.”


To be clear, “Fredo” is not a racist term, and is an attack on someone’s weak character. Still, Cuomo and the left can’t hear something unpleasant to their ears without firing off the term “racist” like they’re the seagulls in Finding Nemo.

Interestingly, the left liked to use the term Fredo itself before this. Here are a few examples, including a CNN host using it.


Here’s George Takei calling Donald Trump Jr. “Fredo.”

Here’s Vanity Fair using it to describe the Trump administration.

And for the pièce de résistance, here’s CNN contributor Anna Navarro calling Trump Jr. “Fredo”…on Chris Cuomo’s show! 


Apparently, using the term is only offensive if it’s used against someone on the left who takes it way too defensively and adopts a tough-guy Italian-American accent as a defense.

Use it to describe a Trump family member or his administration and it’s no longer a slur, it’s somehow and accurate descriptor. If you’re wondering why people can no longer take the left’s claims of “racism” seriously, this is why.

As I wrote earlier, the left has no real defense for themselves as confronting public figures during their off-hours is something they themselves have encouraged. This includes Cuomo, who sat back and defended Antifa after they attempted to raid the home of Fox News host Tucker Carlson, forcing his family to hide in the pantry. His network also doxxed an old lady for simply standing up for the Covington Catholic kids over a smirk.

This outrage from the left is purely for show. They don’t really think “Fredo” is a racial slur, they just want the public to believe it is in order to foster the “right is racist” narrative.
