It was still wrong then, Mr. Troll.

Also, seriously, people, stop paying attention to Coulter. Her entire career is built off of pissing off people with fallacies and misinterpretations. She's a professional troll, and should be set to ignore like all of the good ones are.

Who would be? This is a person who makes a living saying inflammatory things to get attention. Now a bunch of people have given her attention for an inflammatory thing she said. Saying it again is about the most transparently predictable thing she could possibly have done.

Yup. The way she's doubling down and saying "retard" repeatedly now reminds me of a small child saying a bad word, then getting a big response from the adults, so she keeps on saying it.

This one time when Rush Limbaugh was fisting her, he asked Ann if they could include Michelle Malkin's young nephew in the action.

Ann replied, "Are you retarded?"

To which he wittily retorted: "You know that I am. Were you trying to be offensive?"

And she shot back: "You know that I was. Why don't you die and get cancer?"

And Rush did. And she ate his corpse and choked on a bone.

So your argument is that at one point you heard a democrat say "Bush is a retard" so from that point forward it's OK for conservatives to use it however/whenever they want. Sound logic.

Hey a black guy just used the N word...go ahead conservatives use it whenever, oh wait, they already do.

Coulter was fired from MSNBC when she told the president of the Vietnam Veterans of America Foundation, himself a disabled Vietnam veteran, "No wonder you guys lost." He had misquoted a report that he said showed that 90% of all American casualties were the result of American land mines. Coulter replied "No wonder you guys lost" because his accusation was so ridiculous.

I stopped using it a few days ago. Well at least I'm trying my best to, it still pops in my head every now and then. Long story short - there are honest nice people who are hurt by the term and about a thousand terms you can stick in there instead. With those, it's tough to argue why it's okay to continue using the term.

Anyway, do what you like, I'm probably about the last person on earth who gets to judge.

Stage 3 Romney-Amnesia (Romnesia). You immediately think cancer and not Alzheimers?

More to the point - you think it's a reference to anything?

There are stages of
1) HIV
2) Cancer
3) Alzheimers
4) Arthritis
5) Syphilis
6) Herpes
7) Pregnancy
8) Allergic Reaction
9) Stroke
10) Inflammatory Bowel Disease

The list goes on. This is how medicine works. People like to know what to expect, so medical conditions are described in stages. That your dumbass immediately jumps to cancer means you're completely oblivious to all of medicine. Stage 3 ________ is a reference to medicine. A reasonable person I suppose could put the two things together, medical + amnesia and come out with something like Alzheimers. But cancer? You watch too much TV.

Googling the term "Stage 3" yields two ads, both for cancer. The first disease cited in links is cancer. Like it or not--whether it's Obama saying it or Coulter saying it--"stage 3" is associated with cancer by the hoi polloi. If the reference had been used in front of an audience of doctors or patients, then "stage 3" would have different connotations.

As stated, if a liberal had said the same in reverse about Romney, you would not be offended by it, you would be cheering, and that's putting aside the number of times I've seen liberals say things far more offensive about people they disagree with.

Oh is it only wrong when conservatives do it? Coulter should have taken a lesson from Limbaugh, when you talk like a liberal about a liberal without being a liberal... it's wrong.
 
2012-10-24 12:38:33 PM  
As much as I hate Ann Coulter to the point where I want her to fall from a balcony and land ass first on picket fence, I have to agree that the people making this into an issue need to A) remember that she'll say anything to get attention and should be dismissed, and B) get over the fact that retard, in this type of use, does not refer to mentally handicapped people.

No matter what you try to do, people will continue to use whatever PC term is derived for the handicapped. Do you think people who can't walk like to hear a person who can't feel be called an 'emotional cripple'? Maybe they've gotten over the usage, or maybe they understand that it's not being used to disparage them, just as today's use of retard is not meant to disparage the mentally handicapped.

Now, there are some stupid, awful people who make fun of the handicapped and will say retard in doing so, but that's not what most are doing - the ones who are, well they should probably be beaten into comas by a gang of handicapped people - it would be both hilarious and poetic justice.

When Chris Hayes or a liberal talking head says it, come back and get our reaction then. Liberals can't argue against hypotheticals - if you set the stage, we can't argue with the drapes.

As it stands, a Republican talking head with a history of histrionics used an offensive word - the same word previously denounced by the conservatariat as being "off-limits", no less - and is being called on by apolitical people in addition to some partisans (like Malkin) to apologize.

Coulter instead doubled down. Fark that woman with a barbed-wire condom.

Also, forgive me but I just don't see how Romnesia is a reference to cancer. Well, that's not entirely true... I actually DO get how it's actually not one, but that some waterheads desperately want it to be something offensive so they're willing to bend the truth to pretend it is.

Then he apologizes. Then he invited Special Olympics to the White House.

Then you conveniently left that last part out.


That's called a lie of omission. Also, a sin of omission.

Like it or not--whether it's Obama saying it or Coulter saying it--"stage 3" is associated with cancer by the hoi polloi. If the reference had been used in front of an audience of doctors or patients, then "stage 3" would have different connotations.


This is almost as asinine as talking about how Marines still use bayonets.

You claim "stage 3 Romnesia" would be taken by the hoi polloi as "stage 3 some type of cancer" as opposed to "stage 3 of this hilarious new medical condition called Romnesia." You base this on "googling for stage 3 comes up with Cancer and also Ann Coulter."

Let me do something you seem incapable of doing. Quote someone accurately.

Ann Coulter tweeted this:

Obama: "Stage 3 Romneysia" - because cancer references are HILARIOUS. If he's "the smartest guy in the room" it must be one retarded room.

If you have a problem with Romneysia being confused with cancer, you should tweet Ann Coulter. She's the one who mentioned cancer in her tweet.

Regarding the use of "stage 3", I'm not grasping at anything. The only use of "stage 3" in my life has been in cancer cases my loved ones have experienced. My mother suffered through Alzheimer's and not one doctor used the term "stage 3" to describe her symptoms. Now that might be a comment regarding the quality of care in Arizona but regardless I'm sorry to inform you--as I pointed out by searching for the use of "stage 3" on the web--that "stage 3" is associated with cancer in the minds of many if not most people. Including, as evidenced by the accurate quote above, by Ann Coulter. Sorry if you don't like it, but it is what it is.

I get that using the word retard publicly could be hurtful, but I don't know of anyone who uses that word for people with cognitive issues. It is used for people who are of at least of average intelligence who do something unbelievably, draw-droppingly stupid. The word has become like idiot or imbecile - words that once had clinical meaning but no longer are used for anything other than the pejorative.

For example, thinking that Romneysia, a clear reference to amnesia, is a reference to cancer is retarded. And, if someone with Downs Syndrome called me out for using that word, I would apologize to him and explain that I was in no way referring to anyone with intellectual disabilities. I meant someone who is stupid, like Ann Coulter.

Yes, Ann Coulter did indeed take that snippet out of context and completely change its meaning. How on earth does this help your argument?

Here, let me do something you seem incapable of doing. Quoting someone accurately and honestly. You know, with the proper context:

In a world of new threats and profound challenges, America needs leadership that is strong and is steady. Governor Romney's foreign policy has been wrong and reckless. Last night he was all over the map. Did you notice that? During the debate he said he didn't want more troops in Iraq, but he was caught on video saying it was unthinkable not to leave 20,000 troops in Iraq, troops that would still be there today.

Last night he claimed to support my plan to end the war in Afghanistan. I'm glad he supports it. But he's opposed a timeline that would actually bring our troops home. Early in this campaign he said he'd do the opposite of whatever I did in Israel, but last night I reminded him that cooperation with Israel has never been stronger. (Applause.)

Last night he said he always supported taking out Osama bin Laden, but in 2007, he said it wasn't worth moving heaven and earth to catch one man.

Now, we've come up with a name for this condition. It's called Romnesia. (Applause.)

AUDIENCE: Romnesia! Romnesia! Romnesia!

THE PRESIDENT: We had a severe outbreak last night. (Applause.) It was at least stage three Romnesia. (Laughter and applause.) And I just want to go over with you some of the symptoms, Delray, because I want to make sure nobody in the surrounding area catches it. (Laughter.) If you say that you love American cars during a debate, but you wrote an article titled, "Let Detroit Go Bankrupt," you might have Romnesia. (Applause.)


Here are a bunch of examples of Romney flip flopping and forgetting his original stance. A play on the word amnesia. "A severe outbreak of Romnesia." Yet you think a reasonable interpretation is Obama is thinking about cancer. No word yet on why he called it Romnesia like amnesia and not Romnoma since the names of cancers end in -oma.

Jiro Dreams Of McRibs: If you have a problem with Romneysia being confused with cancer, you should tweet Ann Coulter. She's the one who mentioned cancer in her tweet.


Yes, she incorrectly mentioned cancer in her tweet. Only a farking moran would think cancer. Why am I replying to you rather than Ann Coulter? Gee, I forget:

Yes. Obama got up in front of a microphone and said "Stage 3." He then walked away. The rest of the context is irrelevant. So naturally it makes sense that people thought "stage 3 cancer."

ERMAGERD! SOMEONE POINTED OUT THAT PHRASES HAVE CONNOTATIONS THAT VARY WITH THE AUDIENCES THAT HEAR THEM!!1! ERMAGERD!

Obama could have used a different phrase. Had he done so Coulter couldn't have exploited that phrase by comparing it to cancer. The reason why, as I pointed out above, she could exploit "stage 3" by linking it to cancer is because of many, if not most, Americans experiences with the phrase "stage 3". I'm sure the common cold has different stages but since they aren't often possibly fatal, there probably aren't the emotional connotations attached to "stage 3" colds as there to "stage 3" cancers.

And that's why she chose to use the term "cancer".

Correct, if someone wanted to reference a tumor, they would add either "-oma" or " sarcoma/carcinoma." Therefore when Obama added "-nesia" it makes complete sense to you that Ann Coulter thought he was referencing cancer.

Nice argument you've got going on there. Shame if you turned your brain on and saw how stupid you look.

I'm not insinuating Obama talked about cancer. I'm saying:

1. Obama used a term that millions of Americans associate, due to their personal experiences, with cancer.

2. Either Ann Coulter believes that "stage 3" connotes cancer or she exploited that notion in the minds of millions of Americans by blatantly stating Obama talked about cancer. I can't decide which one. Maybe you can.

But so what? So what if it implied cancer???? Do you think some diseases are funner than others? Can't you just see it for what it is, a clever play on words--Romney's name and amnesia combined, to poke fun at his absurd lapses in memory of what his platform was the hour before?

colon_pow: farkplug: What's the big hoopla about a cancer reference? Hell, I HAVE cancer (diagnosed two weeks ago), and I'm not offended. It's just a farking random disease like any other. It's not some untouchable trait or failing or permanent characteristic of mine that should be shrouded in shame or spoken of with reverence. I'm still the same person I was before I got it. It can kill, but so can car or train accidents. Yet we don't get all antsy about people saying, "He/she's a trainwreck."

/Don't stage me, bro.

that's a scary deal. stay strong.


I'm not scared (yet?), but I know you mean well, so thank you.

Black people get to use Nibong without it being offensive, I'm pretty sure Ann gets to use "retard"

That's actually a good point. Now, if only she could develop cancer...

Jiro Dreams Of McRibs: ERMAGERD! SOMEONE POINTED OUT THAT PHRASES HAVE CONNOTATIONS THAT VARY WITH THE AUDIENCES THAT HEAR THEM!!1! ERMAGERD!


Exactly. Obama used the term "Stage 3" because many diseases - including cancer - progress in stages. You and Ann Coulter apply one usage of "Stage 3" to mean "cancer" so that you then get to shoehorn in all kinds of other presidential criticisms.

Most other people leave it be because they understand that calling Mitt's position uncertainty "Stage 3" is humorous because "Stage 3" implies an advanced case. Taking one of many implications and assuming Obama meant the "worst" political one just so you can call him names and claim he's insensitive to cancer patients reveals the arguer as partisan (and not just because it's ludicrous to think that Obama, himself the son of a cancer victim, is insensitive to those suffering from cancer).

It suggests you're so partisan, in fact, that every reading of every phrase would be spun in the most negative way possible. Just so's you know, that becomes a lens through which we read your posts. It's like the boy who cried "Outrage!" - someday, you might actually be legitimately offended, and no one will care.

// if it's a legitimate offense, the body politic has ways of shutting that whole thing down anyway

I'm sorry if you think I'm partisan against Obama. If anything, I'm partisan for Obama. I am truly worried that people like Coulter and Romney will run the White House again.

I think it's fair to say Obama inadvertantly connoted cancer and Coulter purposefully denoted it. And those are two very different things.

karnal: Dems were calling Bush a retard way before it was wrong....


Every last goddamn time that someone points out the hellacious reeking mess that Obama inherited from Bush, you pretend that the Universe came into existence on January 20, 2009.

You don't get to only admit that Bush was president when it's convenient for you.

Also: Defend Coulter all you like, he's still not gonna have sex with you.

I'm hardly surprised that she doubled down on the derp. That's how she's made a living for a long time. I do find it amusing that she'll try and spin that Obama is in the wrong for referencing cancer, which is HILARIOUS, by referencing "retard", again.

OMG.

This just keeps getting better and better. Coulter injects cancer, Palin injects "shuck and jive". Is Gingrich going to show up pants-less at the Lincoln Memorial and deliver his famous "I have a boner" speech?

The GOP is straight up coming unhinged.

I remember what happened the last time the admins greenlit every single story about a controversial figure.

Fark developed a mighty strong hankerin' for tacos.
