The numbered points that follow are lines from a four-minute skit in a Saturday Nite Live show on April 8, 2017. They represent a scurrilous attack on a people who have contributed enormously to America and the world at large. Do not be fooled: This is not “comedy” or “parody.” This is vile and hateful representation that should be addressed.  

  1. There are no good jobs. They have all been taken by the filthy greasy Italians.
  2. It is not their fault that they are greasy meatball-eating crotch-grabbers.
  3. Don’t be upset over the Italians who everyone knows are not even real white people.
  4. Do you know how to brainwash an Italian. You give him an enema. That makes sense
  5. Do you know why Italy is shaped like a boot. You think they could fit that much crap into a shoe. That is very true.
  6. Then we will hire half wit goombah rat-faced italians and work them to death at the machines. This is my dream
  7. When you say greaseball, is it because their food is greasy or they are…?

 The following are a ‘few’ of the half-wit goombah rat-faced Italians they are talking about:  Anthony Fauci: infectious disease specialist, specializing in HIV/AIDS research. NJ police officer Matthew Tarantino: a man with an exemplary record recently killed on the way to work and mourned by thousands. John Basilone: U.S. Marine Corp. gunnery sergeant killed in action during WW II. He received the Medal Of Honor for heroism above and beyond the call of duty during the battle of Guadalcanal and the  Navy Cross posthumously  for extraordinary heroism during the battle of Iwo Jima. John Basilone was the only enlisted Marine to receive both of these decorations in ww2. He was 28 at time of death. Dominick Salvatore Gentile: The Son of Italian immigrant parents. A WW II pilot who surpassed Eddie   Rickenbacker’s WW I record of 26 downed aircraft. Distinguished Service Cross, the Silver star, Distinguished Flying Cross (U.S.), Distinguished Flying Cross (U.K.), Air Medal. He was 30 yrs old at time of death. Army Staff Sergeant Salvatore Giunta: America’s first living recipient of the Medal Of Honor since the Vietnam War. Maria Montessori: An Italian physician and educator best known for the philosophy of education that bears her name and her writing on scientific pedagogy. Her educational method is in use today in many public and private schools. ****Henry Viscardi Jr.: Born  in 1912 of Italian immigrant parents, he had twisted legs that wrapped around his abdomen. He did not wallow in misery but went on to becoming one of the leading advocates for the rights of the disabled, advising every president from Franklin Roosevelt to Jimmy Carter. He created the National Center for Disability Services. When created in 1952 it was the first business in America staffed largely by disabled people. Viscardi’s work is known worldwide and has touched millions of people of every race, religion and ethnicity. His accomplishments are too numerous to include here. A major film on Henry Viscardi Jr. is being considered. Maria Gaetana Agnesi: Italian mathematician, philosopher, theologian and humanitarian. She was the first woman to write a mathematics handbook and the first woman appointed as a mathematics professor at a university and to discuss both differential and integral calculus. The latter part of her life was devoted to helping the poor; she invited many into her home, where she set up a hospital.  A very few in a very long list of those of Italian heritage who have made positive contributions to America and the world at large.  nicolo..’Luce Di Speranza’   732 963 9059
