This hater needs a ho sit down — we don’t need any more racist firefighters.
Via NYPost reports:
The first-responder son of city Fire Commissioner Salvatore Cassano has unleashed a sickening slew of tweets that target everyone from Jews to blacks to the poor.
Joseph Cassano, 23 — who yesterday’s Post revealed is working as an FDNY EMT in an apparent bid to fast-track his promotion to firefighter — regularly uses the derogatory term “shwoog” when referring to black people, and once tweeted, “I like jews about as much as hitler.”
He even openly gripes about his job, calling it “the worst’’ and ripping the people he’s paid to serve.
“Getting sick of picking up all these obama lovers and taking them to the hospital because their medicare pays for an ambulance and not a cab,” Joseph Cassano tweeted Feb. 3.
About a week earlier, the young EMT posted from his Twitter account, @jcassano15, “Gotta love people with the iPhone 5 and brand new Jordan’s whip out their benefits card #f–kobama #ipaidforyourstuff.”
Before last November’s election, Joseph Cassano vowed to “move to Scotland” if Obama were re-elected.
On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, he posted, “MLK could go kick rocks for all I care, but thanks for the time and a half today.”
Joseph and two other scions of FDNY brass are among 100 new hires at the EMS — where about 40 percent of personnel are minorities.
EMS members get first crack at joining the FDNY as firefighters under new federal diversity rules that put them ahead of “open competitive” applicants to the Fire Academy.
The young Cassano made it clear earlier this month that he wants to join the FDNY, tweeting, “I hate ems” and, “Everybody wanna be a firefighter, but don’t nobody wanna be a damn EMT.”
He has no love for the NYPD, either, tweeting in September: “U couldn’t pay me enough to be a cop, there’s absolutely no direction in that department and I’m very glad I’m going the other way.”
Early this morning, Joseph Cassano released a statement through an FDNY spokesman that said, “I regret posting some comments that were offensive, especially since I enjoy my job and treat every patient with great care and respect.” His father declined to comment.
The boorish tweets started before Joseph was even hired by the city.
“News flash to half of the island,” Joseph, who lives at home with his parents on Staten Island, posted in August. “ur white! Stop talking like ur a shwoog.”
In November 2011, Joseph laid into rapper Flo Rida after the performer sampled the song “Levels,” by Tim Bergling, in his own tune “Good Feeling.”
“This dumb shwoogie Flo-rida should be shanked for what he did to levels,” he opined.
In January 2012, Joseph and a buddy traded tweets about Jews.
“I saw a sick jew walking on bloomingdale and thought of you,” Joseph posted to the pal, who uses the twitter name @breezyy.
In November 2011, the duo had an exchange after @breezyy posted a photo of a Hasidic Jew near a basketball court where kids were playing and wrote: “This no good Hebrewwww crepin on the kidssssss.”
Joseph replied, “I like jews about as much as hitler #toofar? NOPE.”
The FDNY progeny openly admits on Twitter that his remarks have gotten him in hot water in the past.
Last March, Joseph, who plays in a local baseball league, disclosed that he had been suspended for five games because of a Twitter post.
“1 game down 4 more to go,” he tweeted on March 16, 2012.
When one of his friends asked what he’d done, Cassano replied, “got suspended for a tweet #suspendedchild.”
Young Cassano also displays a vulgar attitude toward women.
“I love boob jobs . . . I wish every girl in America were forced to get one once they turn 18,” he wrote in November. He added, “I’ll vote in the presidential election when a candidates main purpose is to make breast enhancement surgery free to all who want it.”
SMH. This guy doesn’t deserve to wear the uniform.
