Skip to comments.Whoopi Goldberg Defends Bill Maher Calling Trig Palin “Retarded”
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 Views 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.
The discussion left viewers dumbfounded at the irony that the same cast who will defend Mahers 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).

She would certainly know.
More human garbage.
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.
She didnt know it then, but there was a reason for her feeling as if she wasnt grasping anything taught in the classroom. Whoopi has dyslexia, but during her early years, she didnt have a diagnosis, only her self-given diagnosis as abnormally slow. You dont 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 couldnt 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).
The left does not even try to hide its venom now. Sooner or later that snake is going to bite itself to death, I feel.
Whoopie, you are a retard.
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
Yes, but those slurs haven't been in vogue for a coon's age.
Whoopie is retarded and a nutbag
Who better to give lessons on language etiquette than Ms. Whoopi, the colored lesbian comedian?
