Ann Coulter Refuses
to Apologize for Calling
President Obama a "Retard"

Cleveland Leader (OH), by Julie Kent

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 10/27/2012 12:31:49 PM

Conservative political commentator Ann Coulter refuses to apologize for calling President Barack Obama a "retard", dismissing her critics. During an appearance on Alan Colmes' Fox News Radio show on Thursday, Coulter shrugged off the outcry. Coulter's tweet set off a firestorm among advocates of people with mental disabilities, but she says that she does not regret using the offensive term and blames "liberal bullies" for the subsequent backlash.

Comments:
Like Ann, I think most Americans are tired of being lectured to by the PC language police. The left is a joke and needs to be mocked at every opportunity. We are not afraid to call a spade a spade.

Obama never apologizes for the stuff that comes out of his mouth. Why should Ann Coulter?

If the stupid Dimwits would not make such a fuss over it, most people would not have heard it or cared. They certainly didn't mind when Obama called Mitt a bu..S...... Guess that is what defines a double standard.

#5: not really. It's the use of the word as an insult that bothers people. As the mom of an autistic kid I'd punch anyone in the mouth who used the term in that way.

"Retard" doesn't really mean anything but "stupid person" now. But some people are still very sensitive about it since that's a very recent switch in definitions. Coulter is being a jerk and distracting from the race which plays directly into the Democrats' hands.

Just like Rush calling Fluke a nasty name, these things don't actually help the cause of getting Obama out of the WH. Just because they call themselves conservatives doesn't mean we should support them when they're being jerks.

The Islamic Malignancy does seem a bit slow in learning from his experiences, and in adjusting his course of action. Yeah, "retard" is a fair characterization, but it misses the fact that he is a sneak thief.

#9, never in my life have I called anyone "retard" who was developmentally disabled or brain damaged or children with emotional or behavioral disorders. Ever.

My definition has always been people who should know better and refuse to make informed decisions out of pure laziness or stubbornness and it has been clear I used it in that context. And, if anyone were to call your kid or anyone else's that name in my presence, I would probably beat you to the punch in correcting them!

I have a retarded child. It's cruel. Don't use it. It causes pain to us, our close friends and family members who understand special needs people. "Mentally retarded" is a perfectly descriptive phrase, even tho it's now out of style. My daughter is 38, I've heard them all. call her a retarded person, but don't call your dumb jerk friend a Retard in public. Ann is wrong.

I think Ann should immediately apologize for her poor choice of words.
What she meant to say is that Obama is a narcissistic, deceitful, untruthful, sniveling, corrupt, dishonest, lazy, incompetent, ignorant, racist, muslim punk.
Howdaya like that, Dems?

: slow or limited in intellectual or emotional development or academic progress: I'd say the definition fits. I am so tired of everyone being so thinned skinned and banning words they find offensive. If Chrissy Mathews had his way, we wouldn't be able to use "the", "apartment", "street", "door" ect ect.... in other words shut up everyone and make them affraid to speak lest they offend someone.

To the best of my memory I have never called a mentally handicapped person a retard, but I have called my children, my spouse and myself "retarded". I usually abbreviate it just to "tard" though as in "you tard" after doing something particularly stupid. When I say "that's retarded" my husband (who is a as non-pc as I am) tells me how offensive it sounds to him. As an aside, I was getting gas a couple of weeks ago and an older couple pulled up on the other side of the tanks and in the back seat was a Down Syndrome girl of about 14. She looked at me and we smiled at each other and I cannot explain the feeling of peace and joy that came over me. It was almost as if God himself was smiling at me. Just one of those moments that stay with you.

Following the first debate, Democratic operatives, including James Carville and Chris Matthews, were so stunned by Obama's terrible performance that they burst out on national television with words and descriptions of Obama that might as well have included ''retarded.''

Ann Coulter was just telling the truth in her own direct way when she used the ''R'' word to describe Obama. And what else are writers supposed to do except express the truth as they see it?

In years to come, Ann will undoubtedly be joined by legions of historians reviewing the Obama presidency, who will agree with her assessment that something is wrong with Obama's mental capacities -- just as legions of historians have come to the conclusion that King George the Third was mad, though during the time he was in power no British writer had the courage that Ann Coulter has now to say so.

It okay for them to call Romney any foul mouthed thing, including what came out of Øbama's mouth a few days ago- I won't repeat- Media fawning over the Dems and libtards like ants on sugar and then Ann calls Øbama by what he really is, a political and American heritage "retard" and it's suddenly, "Man the Walls!" for them. Good for Ann- it's long past time to quit apologizing. Stand behind your words and rhetoric, say what you mean and mean what you say!

My thoughts: Autism and Down Syndrome are very different. I've had some interaction with both. If I had to summarize my experiences, autism disrupts the human capacity for social awareness, interaction, and empathy. Although it may have a genetic origin, I tend to think of it as a software problem that disrupts communication pathways in varying degrees of severity. The autistic person I knew best was incapable of meaningful verbal communication but was highly adept at individual problem solving (e.g. finding keys to unlock forbidden places). I would not describe her as retarded, but she would neither know nor care if Ann Coulter did. Down Syndrome kids are the reverse. They are often highly social and empathic. I think of it as a hardware problem--all the right software is there but the processor runs slow. This tends to disrupt the process by which experience and information develops into maturity in adults. I suspect we like our friends with Down's more than we otherwise would for the same reason we like kids--because it affords us an opportunity to revisit a children's world and, sometimes, to indulge our protective instincts. A part of me finds that patronizing and selfish.

Many Down's people are aware of their condition and, being highly empathic, our reactions to it. I try to treat them like I would anyone else. I do not insult them, nor do I presume to take offense on their behalf. If a developmentally disabled person asked me what I thought, I would say this: Ann Coulter is a funny lady with a processor that sometimes runs too fast and gets her into trouble, and that is both her gift and her disability. I would suggest that we focus on her gifts and try to understand and forgive her disability.

She's equal time for 0bama and Biden, playing with one half of her brain tied behind her back just to make it fair.

I don't think of "retard" as a clinical word, just as someone slow. I guess if I had a family member as described in above postings, I might feel different.

0bama does seem slow, and Biden seems like a person who has had neurological surgeries with residual damage. He's nuts.

Gosh, what is it some of you folks don't understand about this? Your rationalizations and excuses are astounding! You are causing pain to the families and friends of the retarded. Just stop it. Please. Usingnthis word as an insult means is that you think so little of, and are so put off by retarded people that you think it's ok to mock them. It says more about the speaker than the spoken to.

#9 makes a thoughtful comment endorsed by others.

The difficulty, as I see it, is that definitions and rules for one situation do not work well every where else. You are allowed to knock your opponent down in boxing but not in a courtroom although we may reach that point.

So when a word such as "retard" moves from medicine or psychology into slang and politics it is not the same word. It is the same sound. Consider how "gay" evolved.

A great deal of word hijacking or adaptation comes from TV, especially from comedy.

Politics and the associated media talk is battle. It is not about assessing mental prowess. Ann gives as good as she gets. Sometimes more. It gets mean but she is working in mean places. So do you censor one side?

The President is no economic illiterate, despite what conservatives think. He understands basic macroeconomics just fine, thank you – but with a twist. Mainstream Democrats worship at the altar of the New Deal. It’s an article of faith that massive government spending pulled America out of the Great Depression.

Its origins and objectives are far more terrifying. Where the traditional Democratic playbook for economic downturns was provided

A majority of Americans believe that President Barack Obama’s signature health care law will be repealed. A new Rasmussen Reports poll found that 62 percent of likely voters believe that Republicans will repeal Obamacare, which recently marked its fourth anniversary. Only 23 percent of those polled believe that the health care law has been a success, compared to 46 percent who describe the law as a failure. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, offered a Republican alternative to Obama’s health care overhaul last week, saying states should play a greater role in containing health care costs while

Secretary of State John Kerry angrily defended the Obama administration’s record on international diplomacy from Senator Jim Risch, after the Idaho Republican claimed that America’s foreign policy “is spinning out of control.” Kerry came before a Senate committee Tuesday, explaining to interested lawmakers that Russia remained an aggressive force in eastern Ukraine and that increased sanctions against Vladimir Putin’s regime seems more likely. “I do not envy the position you’re in here today,” Risch began after Kerry had outlined significant challenges in eastern Europe and elsewhere. “After the discussion we’ve had here today, I think anybody who would come in here would

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
