So, in other words, he made an offhand comment somewhere and since you don't like him (not many seem to), you just conflated that with him claiming to represent all Italian-Americans rather than stating a simple fact?

Anthony Scaramucci is destroying all of the progress that Italian-Americans have made in countering ethnic stereotypes over the decades.

This point is the problem. Never ever act like any one person can or should represent an entire ethnic group or demographic.


Excuse me. I don't think that I ever did that. Look to the subject heading of this thread. It states that SCARAMUCCI ACTS LIKE HE REPRESENTS Italian-Americans.



I've heard fellow African Americans say "this or that person just set us back x-amount of years". And I've heard fellow Muslims say "this or that person/crime just set us back x-amount of years", too. But I completely disagree w/them too.

The whole point in the Western judicial system is that every individual is responsible for his or her own actions. Collective blame is literally a war crime and collective guilt is just plain stupid. Even famous political and religious leaders rarely reflect the wants, needs, and opinions of the people they claim to represent.

In other words, Scaramucci only represents himself. If you give in to the narrative that he represents Italian Americans as a whole, then you're giving him and the narrative-makers power over yourself. But clearly you're not doing that so don't worry about it.


I never gave into Scaramucci's narrative. I am just sick and tired of it... and he is doing damage, BTW.


Clear, blatantly emotional response here, to a very calm and insightful reply. Look at the way he spoke to you versus the attitude in your response. Melodramatic righteous indignation, all caps, aggressive tone, overly defensive...you have absolutely proven with this post that you are taking this whole thing personally, just as it was pointed out to you.

Has Anthony Scaramucci himself claimed to be the representative embodiment of all Italian Americans? No. That is your claim. Has anyone else on this forum created a thread based entirely on the belief that he "acts like" he thinks he's qualified to speak on the sole behalf of all Italian Americans? No. Only you did that. Clearly, the only person here with the problem is you.

Even Tony Danza is a less offensive stereotype than this fettamucci guy.

He is the epitome of all that's wrong with the GOP, another guy who's mouth is bigger than his intellect. He won't last long because Trump does not like anyone who gets more attention than himself. I like to think Italian Americans are classy, courteous, stylish and pasta-okay the last one is a compliment but hey they did come up with the best cuisine on earth IMHO. However this Mussomucci guy has none of those qualities and you are quite right as he does come across as the greasy haired Hollywood archetype, embracing your heritage is fine but defiling it is another.



We used to call guys like this "slicky-boys" back in the army. They were low class punks, sported "100-mile-an-hour," greasy slicked back hair, talked a lot of trash and got slapped around plenty. They all came from a region centered on NYC, and all of them claimed to be connected to the mob.
It was not the Italian link that made them butt-monkeys, hell we had plenty of folks descended from Italians. It was the specific culture they grew up in. Just a bunch of entitled little boys who yelled and blustered, tried to scam out of pulling their weight, got the beat-down often, and wound up getting less than honorable discharges at a high rate.
I believe the "mooch" is about to get a taste of military justice.

Correct. And Sant'Agata, where they make Lamborghinis, is right down the road from Modena.

Well, Italy is a no-brainer for us since we still have family/property there. We're taking my mom next time since she always took me when I was younger.
