Piscopo: NY Italians Dare Liberals Trying to Take Down Our Columbus Statue to 'Bring It On'

"Bring that on. Bring it on," Piscopo dares anti-Columbus activists.

Just try to take down New York Italian-Americans’ statue of Christopher Columbus, entertainer Joe Piscopo dares liberals against public memorials of the Italian explorer.

At the Media Research Center’s 30th anniversary gala, Piscopo said that trying to remove statues of Columbus crosses the line with New York’s Italian-Americans:

“Even an Italian-American, we got a sense of humor - until you try to tear down our statue of Christopher Columbus – then, you got a problem.”

Italian-Americans living in New York just won’t stand for it, Piscopo warned:

“Oh, bring that on. Bring it on.

“You have no idea what you’re going to see in New York, by the grace of God, what’s gonna happen. No, seriously. Take down our statue?"

Piscopo said that the days of Italians being disrespected are over:

“The Italians, we get no respect, at all. You know, we’re like the Rodney Dangerfields of nationalities, you know: ‘No respect at all, I tell you. It’s okay. It’s alright, it’s okay, I tell you.’

“No, that ain’t gonna happen, anymore.”
