Whoopi Goldberg Defends Bill Maher Calling Trig Palin “Retarded”
Life News ^ | June 19, 2013 | Lauren Enriquez

Posted on 06/19/2013 7:49:15 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

This week, anti-life members of The View cast demonstrated their bias once again in a discussion about the proper nomenclature that should be applied to individuals with mental and chromosomal abnormalities.

Had the target been anyone other than the vehemently-hated conservative Sarah Palin and her beautiful son who was born with Down Syndrome, The View‘s Barbara Walters and Whoopi Goldberg would undoubtedly not have defended the vulgar Bill Maher, who called Trig Palin “retarded.”

In a despicable demonstration of the all-too-common liberal tendency to defend their own at all costs, Walters and Goldberg “reasoned” that because “retarded” used to be an acceptable term to describe persons with chromosomal or other disabilities, Bill Maher was justified in his hate speech.

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

The discussion left viewers dumbfounded at the irony that the same cast who will defend Maher’s senseless hate speech tears into anyone who dares to express opposing viewpoints (such as the pro-life views discussed on the show here and here).

I will not call Whoopi retarded. I will say on this one issue I agree with David Icke. She is a Lizzard Woman.

Calling “Whoopi Goldberg” retarded would be offensive to all the low-IQ people who are naturally that way and can’t help it.

I find it interesting that certain people who are so sensitive to how they are treated are so insensitive to how they treat others.

N-word. It’s OK. Just a little old-fashioned, but not offensive.

So - Whoopie doesn’t like the term ‘retard’

Sorry, Whoopie, but Libtard comes to mind when I think of you.

Oddly enough:

http://dyslexia.yale.edu/goldberg.html

She didn’t know it then, but there was a reason for her feeling as if she wasn’t grasping anything taught in the classroom. Whoopi has dyslexia, but during her early years, she didn’t have a diagnosis, only her self-given diagnosis as abnormally slow. “You don’t want to be retarded all your life,” she tells Laura Randolph of Ebony magazine in a 1991 article. “I was retarded for a good part of mine, according to all the paperwork, and I just couldn’t handle it.”

The nature of Mr. Maher’s comment has been suppressed. It is evident that it was intended as a dig at Sarah Palin (even Barbara Walters acknowledges this, and uses it to justify the attempt at “humor”).

So my guess is it was a remark such as “Of course Sarah thinks she’s smart, she spends all day raising a retard.” or “you can see with her retarded son that the nut doesn’t fall far from the tree”. Neither would justify the use.

I await Mr. Maher to clarify what he said and defend it. He is a frequent guest commentator on CNN (and has a program on Time-Warner’s sister HBO network). CNN has advertisers. Time-Warner is a big company. There is plenty to boycott as far as Mr. Maher is concerned (he’s previously boasted he has no sponsors, which is false when he appears on CNN).

Didn’t Whoopi admit to having dozens of abortions..Hey Whoopi, if “Retarded” has lost its meaning, does the same go for the N word, because if that has lost its meaning too I would love to say it straight to your face and see how you react..something tells me she wouldnt like it

In a very academic sense I agree.

Or I could agree if what Ms Goldberg meant was that society should abandon PC terms.

I don’t thin that is what she meant

Really mx dredlox? Hello kettle! More than likely, if the eval was done we, would find that she, baba walrus and billy maher would easily fall in to the category of substandard intelligence quotient. Like the immigrated from dumbassistan. Possibly the Island of Moronica.

I wondered how this antisemite-to-the-bone got the Goldberg name:

She adopted the traditionally German/Jewish surname Goldberg as a stage name because her mother felt that Johnson was not “Jewish enough” to make her a star.

Just as it used to be considered declasse to lift a cheek and squeeze-off a fart on national television. And then say, “I done stepped on a frog!”

OK, only a few dozen people heard/saw it .... She’s a class act.

After all they are 'Pro-choice'.


Stunning how the Left attacks the kids of those that oppose them simply
because they are unable to challenge the Adult on an equal level.

For once I have to disagree. “Retarded” is a perfectly acceptable, and necessary word. Think not?

Delete it from your vocabulary and try to describe the people that actually listen to Bill Maher.

Yes she is. This is why anything she says should not be commented on or acknowledged. In fact no one should ever watch her or any of her movies, tv shows, or appearances. There are more Hollywood types I won’t watch because of their beliefs. If more felt like me, there would be far less movies that just take up space and less “heroes” that mean nothing. Common sense is out there, you just have to look for it and make it real.
