Andrew Cuomo: I’m an undocumented immigrant

| April 20, 2018 | 97 Comments

The legacy governor of New York State, Andrew Cuomo, declared that he’s an undocumented immigrant for some stupid reason, according to Fox News;

“I’m undocumented. You want to deport an undocumented person, start with me because I’m an undocumented person,” Cuomo, 60, said during a bill signing.

During the bizarre speech, the New York governor criticized the “extreme conservative movement” for being “anti-immigrant.” He said his family, who emigrated to the U.S. from Italy, was constantly ridiculed with a racial slur that he said meant “without papers.”

“I’m an Italian-American. I came from poor Italian-Americans who came here. You know what they called Italian-Americans back in the day? They called them wops,” Cuomo said, referring to the pejorative slur for Italians. “You know what wop stood for? Without papers.”

Well, Cuomo was born in Queens, his father was born there, too. While they are indeed wops, in the vernacular of my more youthful days, that’s not what the term means;

According to the Online Etymology dictionary, the slur originated from southern Italian dialect “guappo,” which means “dandy, dude, stud.” The dictionary said it’s not an acronym.

Since Cuomo is second generation Italian, he’s not undocumented. In fact, real undocumented aliens aren’t happy with Cuomo’s attempt at virtue signaling;

Immigrant advocacy group Make the Road Action has called on Cuomo to apologize for the comments.

“To Dreamer and immigrants like me, these fabrications are offensive,” Make the Road Action member Antonio Alarcon said in a statement, adding that the governor “has no idea what it’s like to live as an undocumented person.”

“For those of us who came to this country with our parents to find a better life, and have struggled daily to get by and faced the threat of being torn from our family, it’s unbelievable that the governor would try to claim to have shared our experience,” he said.

Immigration officers shouldn’t let the fact that Cuomo isn’t an illegal alien keep them for deporting his dumb ass, though.

      Damn, ya beat me to it!

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      I hereby declare that I am completely in favor of deporting Cuomo to a better place.

      He is a bitter little person, isn’t he?

      • A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

        I make a motion for Cuomo to be deported to Venezuela.

        • Jus Bill says:

          Second!

          All in favor?

        • Apparently,…Their are a lot of “village idiots” going all the way back to Italy for many generation’s in the Cuomo family tree, this is proof that it is not a sleeper cell in the Cuomo DNA, also this type of arrogantly delusional stupid bovine manure that spews from both Cuomo brothers is verbally on public display on a regular basis from Albany and on CNN. AND this once again confirms the old adage “like father, like sons”. Andy and Chris seem to be even more arrogantly delusional than pops Mario, so that shows proof of a pronounced gene(i)rational decline in the Cuomo family DNA.

          BTW: I am of 1/2 Italian/Sicilian decent, the other 1/2 being Polish/Scottish, my families story of how they arrived in the USA from Italy is similar to the Cuomo’s, I’m a couple of years older(63) than Andy but was not raised a limousine liberal with a silver spoon in a governors mansion. I would never say something so stupid as I am an “undocumented alien” since I’m 4th generation.
          What kind of friggen’ sphincter penetrating fudge licking moronic village idiot would say something like that ?
          OH YEAH that’s right “Andrew Cuomo”
          he embarrass those of us of Italian ancestry

        • Mike_C says:

          Hasn’t Venezuela suffered enough already?

      • Ret_25X says:

        The best part is that this dickhead isn’t even an immigrant.

        That is the lamest part of this crap–the whole “nation of immigrants” canard.

        I didn’t immigrate here, my parents did not immigrate here, my grandparents did not immigrate here and the great grands who did are long dead.

        So is being related to someone who immigrated 140 years ago make me an immigrant too?

        If so, someone needs to explain the “native born” part of my security clearance.

        • Ex-PH2 says:

          I would be happy enough if someone reported him to Immigration. Bust him, send him back where he infers he came from, tell him to apply for a visa for permission to re-enter,and see just how long it takes him to start crying.

          I’d guess the Italians don’t want him, either.

        • Valerie says:

          The Leftards use the term ‘nation of immigrants’ to undermine our citizenship. I call myself a Native American, because I am third generation.

          • Ret_25X says:

            and I call the so called “native americans” (meaning the “indians”) second wave immigrants.

            They are not “from here” either.

            It is like libtards don’t understand that humans do not originate from north america.

            after all, they are tards for a reason.

    • desert says:

      You bet! Take him at his word and run the lying a.h. out of the country! imho

  2. Former EM1/SS says:

    One would think he doesn’t need to be deported, the stupid SOB should just use some of the vast fortune he has acquired in the land that treats him and his ilk so freaking badly and re-locate to a country that would treat him better

  3. Cris says:

    Etymology
    The Merriam-Webster dictionary states wop’s first known use was in the United States in 1908, and that it originates from the Southern Italian dialectal term guappo, roughly meaning thug, pimp, or swaggerer, derived from the Spanish term guapo, meaning handsome, via dialectal French, meaning ruffian or pimp.[2][3] It also has roots in the Latin vappa, meaning wine gone flat.[2]

    In Neapolitan and other Southern Italian dialects, guappo is pronounced as wah-po.[4][5] As Southern Italian dialects often feature unaspirated stops or “swallow” the final vowels in a word, guappo would often sound closer to wahpp to American or Anglo ears. Guappo historically refers to a type of flashy, boisterous, swaggering, dandy-like men in the Naples area. The word eventually became associated with members of the Camorra and has often been used in the Naples area as a friendly or humorous term of address among men.[6] The word likely transformed into the slur “wop” following the arrival of Southern Italian immigrants into the United States. Southern Italian immigrant males would often refer to one another as “guappo” in a jocular or playful manner; as these Southern Italian immigrants often worked as manual laborers in the United States, their native-born American employers and fellow laborers took notice of the Italians’ playful term of address and eventually began deploying it as a derogatory term for all Italians.[5] The term “guappo” was especially used by older Southern Italian immigrant males to refer to the younger Southern Italian male immigrants arriving in America.[7][4]

    False etymologies
    One false etymology or backronym of wop is that it is an acronym for “without passport” or “without papers”, implying that Italian immigrants entered the U.S. as undocumented or illegal immigrants.[8][9][10] The term has nothing to do with immigration documents, as these were not required by U.S. immigration officers until 1918,[11] after the slur had already come into use in the United States.[9] Another backronym is that wop stands for “working on pavement,” based on a stereotype that Italian immigrants and Italian-American men typically do manual labor such as road building.[12][13] Turning acronyms into words did not become common practice until after World War II, accelerating with the growth of the US space program and the Cold War, and the first use of wop significantly predates that period.

    • Cris says:

      Just to clarify it a little more….

      • rgr769 says:

        Maybe Cuomo was thinking “dago.” Is dago a synonym? If so, what is the etymology of that word? Asking for a friend with an inquiring mind, but make it pithy.

        • NormanS says:

          Derived from the Spanish, “Diego James”. Originally applied to Spaniards or Portuguese serving in British and American ships. Eventually expanded to include Italians.

          • 2/17 Air Cav says:

            I have never heard dago used other than to refer to an Italian. Spaniards I don’t know about but Puerto Ricans are known as spics. As you can tell, I travel only in the classiest circles. (In actuality, aside from screwing around here, I haven’t heard either term used since I was a kid. And that was a long, long time ago.)

    • Jay says:

      Don’t let facts get in the way of a good story though….

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      I believe in the not so distant past, Italian-Americans were also called ‘guinnies’, not sure how that was spelled.

      However, I’m happy to support the Dreamers whose parents brought them here and who want to be Americans, when they tell Cuomo and his ilk to go pound sand sideways.

      • USAFRetired says:

        PH2 now you reminded me of a tired old joke. About how you can tell if it is an Italian Air Force helicopter. The little blade goes guinea guinea guinea and the big blade goes wop wop wop.

        The blades of the AH1 Cobra sure sound like they go wop wop wop. I read somewhere about the Scott Ogrady rescue mission that was a concern of the AH-1s that flew RESCORT. Apparently it is the loudest of the helos in our inventory.

    • AZtoVA says:

      I would say acronyms came into common use during the pre-WWII days of the federal government program/agency explosion.

    • Jeff LPH 3, 63-66 says:

      The initials WOP was engraved on the Ellis Island hand stamps which stood for Without OFFICIAL Papers for Immigrants coming into NY without any paperwork. This I know from watching a documantary many years ago about Ellis Island. So maybe the doc I watched long ago was wrong like Cris mentions on his above comments.

    • RCAF-CHAIRBORNE says:

      From my experience, the most offensive thing you can say to an Italian is to criticise their cooking!

    • desert says:

      Crappo seems more appropriate for this warthog!

    What sound does an Italian helicopter make?

    Asking for a friend.

    • sj says:

      That was the running joke in ’68 in Viet of the Nam when MG Olinto Barsanti (aka Pizza 6) 101st CG would fly into a firebase. More than once I heard a phantom “wop wop wop” on the Div Cmd Net. I heard that he would laugh about it.

      • Sparks says:

        MG Barsanti was a highly decorated soldier at that. Led by example.

      • rgr769 says:

        We had an insane Assistant Division Commander who liked to fly out to firebases and chew ass. Our lunatic battalion commander told us to broadcast and scream to everyone on his firebase, “the General is coming. The General is coming,” so that everyone could try to get their shit together before he could get off his bird. This General, who wrote field manuals, during and after WWII, once locked my heels and chewed my ass because a firebase M-60 machine gun position was not horseshoe shaped, cuz that’s they way they are always depicted in the field manual.

    • SFC D says:

      What does a flat Pirelli sound like?

  5. MCPO NYC USN Ret. says:

    He is no WOP.
    He is a WOB.

    With our brains!

  6. UpNorth says:

    Well, he and his brother certainly are documented assholes.

  7. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    “I’m an Italian-American….”

    Dahell nationality is that, anyway?

  8. thebesig says:

    Andrew Cuomo, by wrapping himself with the, “I’m Undocumented” description, is engaging in “stolen migration.”

    Maybe he’s talking about moving from another county or borough? If that’s the case…

    The military “immigrated” me from Minnesota to Virginia. Do my military records count as documentation? If not, does that make me “undocumented”? 🙄

  9. Combat Historian says:

    I hope Cynthia Nixon kicks his ass. At least she’s honest about her proggyism…

  10. Cris says:

    Dad – Scottish and Irish + Mom from Spain + this Air Force Brat born in Spain = American.

    Have never called myself Spanish-American or Scottish/Irish/Spanish-American Just American, oh, and Marine! 🙂

  11. Tallywhagger says:

    Cuomo is sort of like Maxine Waters but with real hair. Sifty-ass-son-of-a-bitch even bred himself to one of the stupidest Kennedys ever to breath.

    Classy.

  12. Ex-PH2 says:

    126 people took the citizenship test and passed and then took the oath of citizenship.

    They come from all over, just like my ancestors did and they were PROUD to become Americans.

    What a maroon!

  14. Garold says:

    Good. Now he needs to be reminded that he can’t run for president.

  15. A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

    Never underestimate the capacity of a liberal politician to be an absolute shit-for-brains. IMHO this further proves that the D-rat party is more dedicated to illegal aliens than it is to American Citizens.

  16. Green Thumb says:

    What a clown.

    I guess is taking a page of the Elizabeth Warren playbook.

  17. The Other Whitey says:

    Ben Shapiro had the best reply to this:

    “Actually you’re a rich white dude with a famous dad for a politician and a brother with a morning show on CNN.”

  18. QMC says:

    Well he’s a well known documented idiot. Fortunately for him he’s a Dem in NY, so he pretty much wins elections by default anyways.

    • Sgt Fon says:

      unfortunately for me, he is a Dem in NY also. he is elected by NY city, the rest of the state hates him for the idiot he is…

      • A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

        Just like in Chicago, get the D-rat nomination and you’re in. My Son asked me about the reality of zombies, I briefly explained how the dead suddenly come back to life and vote D-rat every other year in cities like Chicago, NYC and others.

  19. Forest Green says:

    Fauxcahontas and da WOP. Sounds like the 2020 Presidential ticket.

  20. David says:

    Cultural misappropriation I believe the correct term. Think Elizabeth Warren or Rachel Whatsername in the NAACP.

    Wonder if he has Italian tires on his car? Dago through mud, dago through snow, but when dago flat dago wop, wop, wop. (Older joke than most readers here.)

    He may as well claim to be an Honorary Chief Petty Officer.

    • Former EM1/SS says:

      OMG. Thread winner!

    • Yef says:

      What’s an honorary chief petty officer?
      Why is it funny?

      • Hack Stone says:

        Honorary Chief Petty Officer, as in Daniel Bernath is not nor ever was an Honorary Chief Petty Officer.

        Once you become a regular here, you learn a few things that may seem incorrect to the casual viewer, but thanks to inane postings from exposed posers, TAH has adopted as acceptable. For example:

        We write “lawer” instead of “lawyer” thanks to Gunny Driveway (Ronald Mailahn). http://thisainthell.us/blog/?p=28658

        We now refer to that country in Southeast Asia as “Viet Of The Nam” due to a recent poser (can’t recall which one).

        “As to” is often posted in comments as a nod to an intellectual genius who formerly lived in Bethesda MD but now occupies a P.O. Box who lost his job, home and what little reputation he had defending Phil Monkress’ false claims of being a Navy SEAL. (Too many threads to post a link)

        A closed US military hospital in Panama is the official repository for military records for those claiming to receive a Purple Heart while records show the person was still in high school. (Shane Ladner). http://thisainthell.us/blog/?s=Shane%20ladner

    I hate that guy

  23. Roger in Republic says:

    Mr. Cuomo is the reason that the founders forbade Titles of Nobility. They knew from hard experience that inbreeding was bad for the body politic.

    During my working life I worked for several self-made men whose children squandered the labor of their lifetimes.

    I keep making offers to my friends and family who still live in NY to sponsor them for asylum from the PDRNY as so they can taste real freedom.

    None of them have taken me up on the offer yet.

  25. OWB says:

    He could always burn his birth certificate. Not quite the same as burning a draft card, but maybe he can start a new trend for lefties ashamed of their documentation.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      I think that is a brilliant idea! I like it!

      You’re right: we should encourage them to do that. Then they can complain when they’re deported to some other infernal place. 🙂

    • rgr769 says:

      He should also burn his driver’s license and his passport, as well as any other document that shows he is a US citizen. Then he can truly claim to be “undocumented.”

  26. Roh-Dog says:

    Somebody should tell him he his a high capacity undocumented something-or-other, and needs to be registered post haste.

  27. Jeff LPH 3, 63-66 says:

    Hey andy, take a long walk off of a short pier.

  28. GDContractor says:

    I’m looking at this a different way. If he can self identify as an undocumented immigrant, then so can I!

    Driver’s license! On demand, no papers!
    Medical treatment! On demand! No papers!
    Bill collectors? Tough shit. I’m not that guy! I’m undocumented!

    I’m going to save a ton of money.

  29. RCAF-CHAIRBORNE says:

    Reading his bullshit gave me the worst headache since the last time I tried to have an intelligent conversation with a Creationist.

  30. Hack Stone says:

    Does this mean that he is ineligible to vote?

  31. Devtun says:

    A phony immigrant. A dingbat. None of his pop’s legendary political acumen.

  32. Rosalee Adams says:

    One more time a lib, this time Cuomo, proves that plastering your walls with degrees does not = intellect

  33. Stephen F. McCartney, M.D. says:

    “Godfather” (Mario Cuomo) to other mobster: “You must forgive me..my wife and I spoiled ‘Santino’ (Andrew Cuomo) and he speaks without thinking….”
    “Santino’s” grandparents Andrea and Immacolata arrived via Ellis Island (1926,27). He was born in 1957 in Queens, son of “Godfather” Mario and older brother of “Fredo”.
    “Santino” must have read “Everything You Want to Know About Rich Connected White Folks” book by bimbo white chick (Rachael Dolezal) who was former NAACP bubba and “identified” as Zulu-American. Open mouth…insert foot !

  34. Ex-PH2 says:

    Unfortunately for this and other lame-brained politicians who think they’re being clever, when they say something this stupid and they think they’re being clever, they seem to hit the bent nail right on the spot to bend it even more.

    The Real Dreamers (see in the 3rd article at the top) are very annoyed with Cuomo’s attempt at cleverness.

    Let us hope, sincerely, that he and other politicians like him will continue with these faux pas, which are an obvious and lame attempt to garner votes and an audience. One can only hope that they don’t wise up by the time the next term election comes around.
