Rudy Giuliani will be hosting AMC's Mob Week

Postby Squigy » 03 Aug 2011, 13:18

Here's a story about it on the New York Times website:

http://www.nydailynews.com/opinions/201 ... _week.html

I was shocked when I heard this. It's bad enough that this whole television event encourages stereotypes against Italian-Americans, but to add insult to injury Rudolph Giuliani, an intelligent and successful Italian-American politician of whom we can all be proud, is HOSTING it.

I REALLY don't get this! He's not an actor or a mobster, so why should he be hosting it? Because he's of Italian descent of course, which means he MUST have a connection to the Mafia!

Anyway, I just thought I'd share that with you.
My Italian surnames:

Caserta: Maietta, Rossano, Tessitore, Negro, Peluso, Musone

Campobasso: D'Andrea, Barile

Catanzaro: Fiorelli/Fiorillo, Romito

I really enjoyed watching those movies this week!!!! Like most other people I could have done without Godfather III. That movie was pointless. My favorite of the three is definitely Godfather II.

As far as Giuliani hosting, being an Italian from NY probably helped. I believe he also fought organized crime when he was mayor of NY. BUT he loves mafia movies...Go figure :)

Just wanted to say..... Rudy's dad was indeed in the mafia. Not saying thats why he hosted it but, using him as an example of people portraying stereo types and not actually living up to them does not apply to Rudy. However he did indeed fight the mafia and clean up the streets despite his family having past connections.

I had no idea his father was in the mob. I learn something new everyday on this site. Thanks for sharing :)

WOW! I didn't know that Rudy's father was in the MOB...But you know what? I just researched it and he was arrested for holding up a milkman, he did a stint for 18 months, if that's being in the mob, TI SALUTO !

apparently the father of Rudy giuliana ,Harold Giuliani was an " enforcer" for his brother in law ( rudy's uncle). Do I know this for a fact? No I am sure when it comes to this stuff its very hush hush. however this is what mayor Giuliani has reported himself.
