Ann Coulter Calls Obama a “Retard” View Count: 228

On Monday night, Ann Coulter, who has not shied away from the spotlight recently, decided to call President Barack Obama a ‘retard.’ The insult came following the third and final debate between Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney.

Coulter tweeted Monday night after the debate, “I highly approve of Romney’s decision to be kind and gentle to the retard.” Coulter continued on Tuesday afternoon, tweeting the following:

“Obama: “Stage 3 Romneysia” – because cancer references are HILARIOUS. If he’s “the smartest guy in the room” it must be one retarded room.”

People took to Twitter to attack Coulter for her comments on Obama. One person tweeted about the comment, saying that it was “offensive and disrespectful.” The same person asked Coulter, “Are you out of your f-cking mind?”

When the debate was over, Obama was awarded the victory by voters. Pundits said that the debate was interesting because Obama was able to attack Romney so aggressively and because of how Romney kept agreeing with Obama.

In response to her slur against Obama, John Franklin Stephens, a Special Olympics athlete, wrote an open letter to Coulter and it was posted on The World of Special Olympics. Coulter has yet to respond to the letter.

Dear Ann Coulter,

Come on Ms. Coulter, you aren’t dumb and you aren’t shallow.  So why are you continually using a word like the R-word as an insult?

I’m a 30 year old man with Down syndrome who has struggled with the public’s perception that an intellectual disability means that I am dumb and shallow.  I am not either of those things, but I do process information more slowly than the rest of you.  In fact it has taken me all day to figure out how to respond to your use of the R-word last night.

I thought first of asking whether you meant to describe the President as someone who was bullied as a child by people like you, but rose above it to find a way to succeed in life as many of my fellow Special Olympians have.

Then I wondered if you meant to describe him as someone who has to struggle to be thoughtful about everything he says, as everyone else races from one snarkey sound bite to the next.

Finally, I wondered if you meant to degrade him as someone who is likely to receive bad health care, live in low grade housing with very little income and still manages to see life as a wonderful gift.

Because, Ms. Coulter, that is who we are – and much, much more.

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.

I have to wonder if you considered other hateful words but recoiled from the backlash.

Well, Ms. Coulter, you, and society, need to learn that being compared to people like me should be considered a badge of honor.

No one overcomes more than we do and still loves life so much.

Come join us someday at Special Olympics.  See if you can walk away with your heart unchanged.

A friend you haven’t made yet,
John Franklin Stephens

Ann Coulter Calls Obama a "Retard" by

  • dafirestar

    I for one don’t take the time to vote and Probably won’t in this election, my reasoning is simple, if I voted that would imply I had a choice that one’s policies would affect my family and myself favorably over the other or maybe one man’s ideals and direction is more representative of who I feel would do a better job running our once great nation. The truth is I don’t believe on candidate would do anything different than the other, rendering my vote useless. The fact is I’m apolitical basically the whole excercise I find actually great for checking out the sound bytes of people who have deemed themselves to be more patriotic than the next person? Truth is I think it’s just a psychiatric condition driven by ego, when someone like Ann Coulter feels the need to inform me that Obama is not the N-word but the R-word? OK Ann. OK people tell me this when someone uses words like that what comes to mind? For me, I think uneducated, I mean who talks like that to cut down another person? yes your right someone that has not been educated or a 12 year old. So based upon this article thanks to Ann Coulter if I were to vote, sorry Mitt Ann just lost you a vote. For if I sided with Mitt, that would mean I would be on the same side as the uneducated and immature. That’s what I got from this article. Everything else said whether relevant or not I wouldn’t know all I saw was Obama is a retard and I thought so little of this woman whatever else she had to say was lost to her comment. I could go on and on but really what adult woman speaks like that? I’m astonished that this is how a successful author communicates.

    Ann is just one of the talking heads guarding the inhabitants of Bullsh*t Mountain from rejoining the world of the sane. Fox News is a propaganda machine which dumbs down America by the day through disinformation and their slanted agendas.

    Well the way i see it is as follows:
    1. retard by definition is “slow” or “to make slow”.
    As I see it, Obama has had a slow or “retarded” attempt at being the president. There has yet to be a budget made, or I guess you could say he has “retarded” his efforts.
    He has yet to cut the deficit in half as he said, or one might say he “retarded” recovery, or perhaps retarded growth. Also, just to throw it out there, a nigger is an uneducated person (not just an african american). He obviously does not know how to promote job growth, decrease gas prices, or help the middle class, so as I see it he has no idea what it means to be president.
    So in conclusion he is a “retarded nigger”.

    @Chris Wilson,let me just say this.”Retarded” does not mean slow.I’m a musician,so I’m an expert on this.To slow down is to “ritard.” I have quite a few cousins who have learning and mental disabilites and I worked as a student teacher for a special education class.I dont appreciate Ann’s comments or yours. People like you are the reason that the world is tainted;because you don’t care about anyone’s feelings but your own. God forbid that you ever had a child with autism or down syndrom and someone walk in a room and say “retard” in front of them. How you do think that those people feel when people use that word to be hateful to others. The man who wrote this letter to her is correct,it’s not right and nobody should use that word in a derogatory way.Mentally challenged people are some of the best people in the world. They’re not hateful,theyre happy,and theyre very intelligent if you give them the chance to be.Also, on the use of the N-Word.How dare you use that word. It is so rude and so racist. I’m white,and I would never call someone that word to get my point across. It’s degrading. In my opinion,you have no room to call anyone a name referring to their intellect,or lack-there-of;because you,my friend,are obviously not the brightest crayon in the crayola box.The president doesnt control gas prices,in fact, our government in general doesn’t.We buy gas from the middle east,and when things go ary there,our prices go up.THEY control that. And I’m considered middle class and I feel that I have been helped quite a bit actually.So, you really should let your brain finish working before you start typing,my friend. Because what you just stated on this page is far from intelligent.
