The spirit of antichrist hates Sarah Palin and anyone who loves and serves the truth of God. How much hate, lies and death does one have to see from the minions of the antichrist until one can just turn away and bless the light bearers instead? God bless Sarah Palin.

I thought Wonkette was a woman. This was definitely written by a very bad gay man. This kind of evil comes out of the gay bars. I know this from my own experience with gay men and careful reading of the conservative blog Hill Buzz.

Hopefully, it's the train wreck syndrome. The want to be there to watch this idiot go down in flames.

The mask has fallen. Liberals are showing their true sentiments, vile, crass, vulgar, hateful, indifferent to humanity,interested only in their own power, calloused, insane and fundamentally evil. Thank you Barry O for making all of this clear to Americans.

Ignorance gravitates towards ignorance, and pro abortion is the greatest social ignorance to ever inflict the terminally selfish and depraved. Sarah should be proud to have such people as her enemies. It speaks well of her.

Calls Him "Retarded"

Uhh, he is.

Sad, but that's a statement of fact. Considerably lower than average intelligence is almost always associated with Downs Syndrome. "Retarded" is a euphemism for such people that came in a few decades ago when the considerably harsher earlier terms (moron, imbecile, idiot) became non-PC.

I guess "retarded" has now moved up the PC food chain and is itself no longer acceptable. "Special" or "special needs" will probably be next.

I read her disgusting rant, and she said a lot of things that were far more offensive and actually untrue.

I also thought Wonkette was a woman.

Actually a woman started the blog a number of years back, but sold out and it now has a bunch of posters.

This particular disgusting post was by a man (using the term very loosely) who calls himself Jack Stuef.

I should have pointed out that making fun of someone for being retarded is about the most despicable thing I can imagine.

Not really, I guess, but then I have a vivid imagination. It’s plenty bad, though.

The latest PC term I heard was “spectrum kids.” A friend of mine who is a music teacher was asked by the mother of an autistic child if she had “experience with spectrum kids.”

IMHO, it is no longer social ignorance that drives these people it is moral irrelevance. With the technology they have today and the pictures of fetuses than be taken, they have no excuse except for the fetus was imperfect or unwanted so therefore kill it - my body, my life, my business. They have the same intolerance for the ailing aged.

I believe that refers specifically to kids on the “autism spectrum,” which does not necessarily have anything to do with retardation.

But it is tough keeping up with the euphemisms.

I hate to sound dumb but are the words about satan walking back and forth your own - or are they a quote? Wherever they come from they moved me to tears. Beautifully harsh words.

When coming upon this FR post, I could actually hear the footsteps of the devil...

And the homo who called him 'retarded' is still mentally ill, I don't care what the AMA says.

Glad you had the courage to use “that” word. At my advanced age I truly remember the old terms used to describe youngsters sadly (fill in blank).
“Retarded” is another word now NOT PC to too many people. I hear people unwilling to use the word BLIND, DEAF, HANDICAPPED, CRIPPLED and even DEAD.

From George Carlin:

CRIPPLES! Simple honest direct language. There’s no shame attached to the word cripple I can find in any dictionary. In fact it’s a word used in Bible translations. “Jesus healed the cripples.” Doesn’t take seven words to describe that condition. But we don’t have cripples in this country anymore. We have: the physically challenged. Is that a grotesque enough evasion for you? How about differently abled? I’ve heard them called that. Differently abled! You can’t even call these people handicapped anymore. They say: “We’re not handicapped, we’re handy capable!” These poor people have been bs’d by the system into believing that if you change the name of the condition somehow you’ll change the condition. Well hey cousin ... doesn’t happen! We have no more deaf people in this country. Hearing impaired. No more blind people. Partially-sighted or visually impaired. No more stupid people, everyone has a learning disorder. Or he’s minimally exceptional. How would you like to told that about your child. He’s minimally exceptional. Psychologists have actually started calling ugly people those with severe appearance deficits. It’s getting so bad that any day now I expect to hear a rape victim referred to as an unwilling sperm recipient!

And we have no more old people in this country. No more old people. We shipped them all away and we brought in these senior citizens. Isn’t that a typically American twentieth century phrase? Bloodless. Lifeless. No pulse in one of them. A senior citizen. But I’ve accepted that one. I’ve come to terms with it. I know it’s here to stay. We’ll never get rid of it. But the one I do resist. The one I keep resisting, is when they look at an old guy and say, “Look at him Dan, he’s ninety years young.” Imagine the fear of aging that reveals. To not even be able to use the word old to describe someone. To have to use an antonym. And fear of aging is natural. It’s universal, isn’t it? We all have that. No one wants to get old. No one wants to die. But we do. So we con ourselves. I started conning myself when I got in my forties. I’d look in the mirror and say, “Well...I guess I’m getting ...older.” Older sounds a little better than old, doesn’t it? Sounds like it might even last a little longer. I’m getting old. And it’s okay. Because thanks to our fear of death in this country I won’t have to die. I’ll pass away. Or I’ll expire, like a magazine subscription. If it happens in the hospital they’ll call it a terminal episode. The insurance company will refer to it as negative patient care outcome. And if it’s the result of malpractice they’ll say it was a therapeutic misadventure.

I’m telling ya, some of this language makes me want to vomit. Well, maybe not vomit ...
... makes me want to engage in an involuntary personal protein spill.

The problem is the tragedy of the condition, not the term used to “name” it.

Too many people think we can make the condition stop being tragic if we euphemize it enough.

Doesn’t work. Retardation is still a tragedy. As is blindness, deafness, paraplegia, etc.

The people suffering from these conditions are equal to any of us in God’s eyes, and they should be in ours. I believe to some extent the desire for euphemism comes from a refusal to acknowledge the existence of tragic conditions. We’ll just pretend they aren’t really tragic.

Unfortunately, you can’t be a liberal without also being retarded, at least in your maturity.

Sorry, usually I reference quotes.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Job 1:6-7 (King James Version)

6.Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.

7.And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

and
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
John 10:10
“The thief (Satan) comes only to steal and kill and destroy;
I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There are other similar references.

Satan is real, we are not to follow Satan. “Satan is the father of lies.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
John 8:44 American Standard bible

“You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The answer to the troubles of this life are told of in the Holy Bible and Jesus Christ.

Retard has come to mean stupid. Retard means slow, noun or verb. Retardare is Latin for “to slow.” Rétard in French means slow.

It’s considered offensive, but it’s really just a word. Yes, in the sense of a sufferer of Down’s Syndrome, it’s appropriate. Is it insensitive? Depends on the person.

I’m tired of political correctness.

I’m sick and tired of tip-toeing through the tulips with these idiots. I’ve aggressively confronted Leftists at the office lately, and I’ve been lambasted for it. The thing I love about this is that management is all PC, so they have to “coach” me about “sensitivity.” This isn’t about sensitivity. I’m over it all.

It’s time to start firing back with the big guns. .50 cal over the hill, some 40mm shells, we need the major ammo in our arsenal. Enough with keeping the powder dry. The Leftists think we’re all pacifists. It’s time to show them that they’ve woken the bear, and it’s very, VERY pissed off.

Make sure you let the National Downs Syndrome Society and the National Association for Downs Syndrome know about this attack on a child with Downs Syndrome as well as parents who chose life rather than aborting Trig. If someone has the juice perhaps they can force the NAG’s to make a statement about this kind of an attack on a woman and a defenseless child. Not much hope with the last one after all Sarah Palin isn’t human in their eyes let alone a woman and in their eyes Trig probably should have been aborted.

Another aspect of the “Trig” issue is that leftist women look at him and know, viscerally, “I would have had him killed” and they can’t escape the knowledge that that is wrong.

I, too, loathe political correctness. But in Trig’s case, I’m gonna skip the “retarded” word and use Down Syndrome. His mom doesn’t like the word and since she’s done so much for me and my country, I’m gonna honor her wishes.

Off topic, I felt a little guilty calling the scumbag author of this piece “gay” so I tried to research it. I can’t find where it explicitly says he’s gay but his Wonkette pages seem devoted to gay issues. So I’m assuming I’m right. If you can believe it, “Hugs” is an advertiser on his page!
