The Weirdness Of Lefty Tough Guys

Fredo Cuomo
One of the truly weird features of the modern Left, especially its major political candidates and media figures, is the propensity to engage in the politics of personal confrontation and physical threats against President Trump, his supporters and others on the Right.

As Victor Davis Hanson wrote in a recent column for FOX News, former Vice President Joe Biden has bragged on two occasions that he would like to beat up President Trump.

In March 2018, Biden huffed: “They asked me would I like to debate this gentleman, and I said no. I said, ‘If we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him.”

A year later Biden came forth with, “The idea that I’d be intimidated by Donald Trump? ... He’s the bully that I’ve always stood up to. He’s the bully that used to make fun when I was a kid that I stutter, and I’d smack him in the mouth.”

Even more comical was Senator Cory Booker’s testosterone-fueled comment that, "Trump is a guy who you understand he hurts you, and my testosterone sometimes makes me want to feel like punching him, which would be bad for this elderly, out-of-shape man that he is if I did that. This physically weak specimen."

Prof. Hanson also cited actor Robert De Niro as one who has repeatedly expressed a desire to physically assault Trump. A month before Trump was elected, De Niro said of him, “I’d like to punch him in the face.” Later, De Niro doubled down with a series of “F--- Trump” outbursts.

In a TMZ video, actor Mickey Rourke had a lot to say about Trump, who he said once sued him and Tupac, including this: “I’ll meet him in a hotel room any [expletive] day of the week and give him a Louisville slugger.”

Likewise, actor Jeff Daniels told Stephen Colbert “…we [Democrats] need somebody that can take this guy on, that can punch him in the face."

And the threats from celebrities aren’t limited to President Trump – his supporters have not only been threatened but have been on the receiving end of numerous verbal attacks, physical assaults and acts of vandalism.

Perhaps the strangest example of testosterone-fueled Leftism was a verbal dust-up between CNN anchor Chris Cuomo and an unknown person who approached him at a public location and referred to him as “Fredo” Cuomo, as do conservative talk radio rock stars Rush Limbaugh and Chris Plante (in reference to the weak brother character in the Godfather books and movies).

The video that went viral on Twitter shows Cuomo in a heated shouting match with a man who called him “Fredo,” with the CNN newsman telling him it was an insult to Italians the same way the N-word is for African Americans.

“Punk-ass bitches from the right call me Fredo,” Cuomo told the man, who claimed he thought the CNN anchor was named Fredo. “My name is Chris Cuomo. I’m an anchor on CNN. Fredo is from The Godfather.

“Fredo is from The Godfather, he was a weak brother and the use of it to an Italian is disparaging,” Cuomo tells him in the video according the transcript from the New York Post’s Mark Moore.

The man then tells Cuomo that he thought that was his name.

They went back and forth, and at one point Cuomo, a son of the late New York Gov. Mario Cuomo, shoots back, “Own what you said,” before threatening, “I’ll f-cking ruin your shit. I’ll f-cking throw you down these stairs like a f-cking punk.”

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 f-cking 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 f-ckin' 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 f-ckin' problem," Cuomo shot back.

Setting aside the fact that Cuomo referred to himself as “Fredo” on Curtis Sliwa’s AM 970 radio show back in January of 2010, stop and think for a second about all of the Republicans and conservatives who have been confronted in public for supporting President Trump and managed to leave the scene of the confrontation without threatening violence against the instigating party.

President Trump sent a tweet directed at Cuomo, who recently hosted a CNN town hall on gun control.

“Would Chris Cuomo be given a Red Flag for his recent rant? Filthy language and a total loss of control,” Trump tweeted. “He shouldn’t be allowed to have any weapon. He’s nuts!”

Trump later told reporters “I think what Chris Cuomo did was horrible. His language was horrible, he looked like a total out-of-control animal. He lost it, and frankly, I don’t think anybody should defend him because he spews lies every night. I don’t know why anybody would defend him,” Trump said. “Chris Cuomo is out of control. I watched it, I thought it was terrible… you’ve never seen me do that.”

President Trump is right. Fox News host Tucker Carlson, former Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, White House senior aide Stephen Miller and Senator Ted Cruz are just a few of those on the Right who proved themselves to be better men and women than Chris Cuomo, Joe Biden, Cory Booker and the entire roster of Hollywood Trump haters.
