"Obama: "Stage 3 Romneysia" - because cancer references are HILARIOUS. If he's "the smartest guy in the room" it must be one retarded room."
After I saw your tweet, I realized you just wanted to belittle the President by linking him to people like me. You assumed that people would understand and accept that being linked to someone like me is an insult and you assumed you could get away with it and still appear on TV.Well said, Mr. Stephens! That is exactly the point of all of this, shall we say "hoopla," about the offending tweets. When people use language like what Ms. Coulter continues to use, they are making an assumption that people hearing that language will consider it an insult to the person they are calling that name. That assumption, and the unfortunate truth of it, is the heart of the larger problem here. When you use the word "retard" as an insult, you are perpetuating the idea that to be "retarded" or "disabled" is to be "less than." It is something to be despised, made fun of, degraded, in Mr. Stephens' words - belittled. And when someone like Ann Coulter uses the word "retarded" as an insult, she is perpetuating that to a large audience under her influence.
