There has long been talk about the “tolerance” of the liberal left. This is a characteristic that has long been the quintessential virtue to be signaled by those looking to appear as compassionate as possible.
Progressives point to their acceptance of all people, no matter their ethnicity, sexuality, or appearance, as some sort of magical gift bestowed upon them by their liberalism.
Of course, we all know this to be untrue. America, by its very nature is tolerant, and Constitutional conservatives have just as much as right to claim supreme tolerance as anyone on the left. All are created equal, after all.
No, tolerance is no political trait – it is a personal one – and CNN’s Chris Cuomo looks to be in short supply this week.
We must warn you; the language ahead is quite profane.
A video has surfaced of CNN’s Chris Cuomo using profanity and threatening violence after an individual referred to him as “Fredo.”
The video, which surfaced Monday evening, shows the CNN anchor flipping out on an individual who referred to him as “Fredo” – a nickname popularized by Breitbart News’s John Nolte.
“No. Punk ass b*itches on the right call me Fredo. My name is Chris Cuomo. I’m an anchor on CNN,” Cuomo said. “Fredo is from The Godfather. He was the weak brother.”
He continued, telling the man that “Fredo” is equivalent to the “N-word” to Italians.
Then things turned even uglier.
The man reacted to Cuomo’s explosion, remarking, “You’re a much more reasonable guy in person than you seem to be on television.”
“If you want to play, then we’ll f**king play,” Cuomo shot back, hurling a series of insults at the man and referring to him as a “punk b*tch.”
“You know my name is not f**king Fredo,” he continued, adding, “own what you said.”
“I’ll f**king ruin your shit,” Cuomo ranted. “I’ll f**king throw you down these stairs like a f**king punk.”
The video itself demonstrates the vociferous and visceral anger of Cuomo, and we retweeted by members of President Trump’s family.
