All about him! Geraldo Rivera: What makes Cleveland case harder to bear? Ariel Castro is Puerto Rican

Oh, he was just turning the horrifying Cleveland captives case into some sort of demented identity politics thing is all. Geraldo Rivera appeared on “Fox & Friends” on Friday and further exposed himself as a self-involved and shameless hack.

Yes, strange that.

Despicable, Geraldo. And there is more:

Geraldo not only blathered on and on during his appearance on “Fox & Friends,” but he wrote about it for Fox News Latino, too.

As the wretched extent of Cleveland’s notorious crime becomes known, there will be necessary scrutiny of the heartless, wicked, perpetrator. And from my point of view, making Ariel Castro’s terrible crimes even harder to bear is the fact that he is Puerto Rican.

What? That is what makes it harder to bear?

Sickening. But not surprising coming from someone who referred to slain Ambassador Stevens as the “dead dude.

As Twitchy reported, the pathetic Geraldo Rivera tweeted about “under-reported” news about the Texas EMT who was arrested on charges of possessing an unregistered destructive device. Geraldo said, “imagine if Muslim!”

This Twitter user turned it right around on the foul Rivera.


Yuk, yuk, yuk! The Cleveland case is so hilarious, huh, Geraldo?

Wicked, heal thyself.

  • Gloves Donahue, Jr.

    The Puerto Rican people have just requested that Mr. Rivera claim to be Jamaican from now on.

    • HARP2

      Yep…..don`t worry…be happy.

    • CatHerder

      Wonder how the Jamaicans feel about that?

    • InformNow

      What ju mean man?! – Geraldo…

      Ever notice which side breaks things down by race and which side is called racists?! Funny how the world works that way.

  • mdtljt

    There he goes again…the RaceBaiter Extraordinaire…the trumpeting of a criminal’s ethnicity shall forever be known as “pulling a Geraldo”…Al & Jesse are pikers compared to this douchecanoe…

  • Clayton Grant

    Geraldo, I would be more concerned with Puerto Ricans being tainted by the inane twaddle that comes out of your mouth.

  • David Johnson

    Surprised he didn’t bring up Muslim’s!

  • IceColdTroll

    Yeah, terrible tragedy he wasn’t a Republican WASP.

  • Cruz2016!!!

    Gee, thanks for clearing that up Geraldo…here I thought he was Cuban
    Like any of this makes a difference with this scum of the earth!!

    • GaryTheBrave

      With a last name of Castro I thought he was Cubano as well. How RRRAAACCCIIISSSTTT of me.

  • almarquardt

    If memory serves, didn’t Geraldo originally use a different name, because he was afraid of acknowledging his own ethnicity — until being “Hispanic” became something kinda cool?

    Seems to me a person’s race (including his own) is all about convenience (or inconvenience) with him.

    • Harlan Hikaru Fox

      He was born “Gerald Riviera” to two parents of Jewish extraction, actually.

  • TocksNedlog

    So, Geraldo is ashamed for his people.

    As the rest of his fellow Americans are ashamed of him.

  • radjahshelduck

    And to think I thought the worst thing Geraldo does on twitter is to have a 20 year old profile picture.

  • LegalizeShemp

    Geraldo should ditch reporting and go into acting, he’d be perfect for the lead in “Screwed: The Harry Reems Story”.

  • Jack

    guess Jerry was just hoping the criminal was a white dude…can’t hate whitey enough around here.

  • $27789750

    However, that mostly Puerto Rican neighborhood was genuinely horrified which is to their credit. Geraldo, himself, is self centered and full of himself.

    • Marjorie

      He and Barry should go bowling together!

  • CatHerder

    Funny, I don’t feel any different about a Caucasian perp than any other ethnic group.

  • Brett McMicken

    in other words, “if only they had been white.”

    gee, where have we heard THAT before?

  • Texyank

    Leave it to Jerry Rivers to act like the punk kenyan and make it about HIM.

  • Steve_J

    Does that mean he was a “homegrown” predator/perv?

  • Guest

    Gerry Rivera continually pushing for that which will ALWAYS elude him,

  • Garth Haycock

    I’ll play your little game, Geraldo. From now on, I’ll refer to Castro as “the San Juan Sadist.”

    After all, isn’t that what you want?

  • Junie3

    I guess it’s okay to refer to him as the Puerto Rican Kidnapper, Baby Killer, Slave Girl Keeper. Oh heck, call him the Puerto Rican KKK.

    • GaryTheBrave

      I see what you did there.

  • bonnieblue2A

    Race/ethnicity identity first is one of the hallmark traits of leftist Progressives. Geraldo’s racism shines through yet again.

    Hey Geraldo, This perp. Ariel and his brothers are kidnappers, rapists, pedophiles & misogynists, baby-killers…….just for starters.

    Yet these guys being Puerto Rican is what “really makes it outrageous” to you and not what they did to these poor young girls they held captive x 10 yrs.? Really?

    Well, considering the source, maybe it isn’t such a leap coming from a guy who is old enough to be his wife’s grandfather.

  • Bucky Jenkins

    noam laden’s comment was worthy of a “bam”? he’s geraldo’s radio sidekick…

  • froggy19510

    Ya cuz we all know that Purto Ricans are as pure as the driven snow. Just ask Jerry Rivers.

  • teamfrazzled

    No idea the guy was Puerto Rican – and still don’t give a crap he is.

  • Bill Board

    Geraldo and Castro … both Puerto Rican’s … both losers.

  • Oilfart1

    Geraldo is an ass-clown. He is of the media lineage that hoped the Boston bombers were angry white, Christian males.

  • 96leroy

    What makes the Cleveland case harder to bear (for me) is that some folks still consider Ariel Castro to be a human being deserving of rights.

  • Rich Davie

    I still have no idea how Geraldo the faux conservative still has a show on the FOX News outlet when he’s neither conservative nor a journalist… not to mention his blatant racist angle on everything that comes out of his mouth.

    I guess both of his viewers must have some serious pull over at the FOX News Network… FOX needs to free-up the time slot that he “occupies” on their network for a show that will draw more than 2 viewers and send him to CNN or MSLSD where he belongs.

  • bizzy bea

    Geraldo’s father was a descendant of Catholic conversos Puerto Rican Sephardic Jews. His mother is of Ashkenazi Russian Jewish descent. He was raised “mostly Jewish” and had a Bar Mitzvah.

  • lillymckim

    I like Fox but I turn Fox off when he comes on.. I refuse to listen to him.

    And here I was ready to blame Cubans…

    I never forgot the Puerto Rican man who wrapped his arms around me and tried to pick me up and carry me out of the grocery store when I was around 10-12 years old. Fortunately I was a tough kid and I fought my way out of his grasp. My parents had asked my to get a bag of pretzels from a different isle and the thought that a child molester would attempt to abduct me never crossed their mind. Years later when I played varsity football my jaw dropped as I recognized that the child molester was my team mate’s dad.

  • Murphy Linn Spears

    Not sure what purpose GR has ever played on Fox or any other news channel….

  • MidAtlanticWoman

    I can’t for the life of me understand why Fox News keeps him on the payroll.
