Posted on 06/17/2013 4:42:17 PM PDT by Nachum
As NewsBusters reported last week, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin called out vulgarian comedian Bill Maher for referring to her Down Syndrome son Trig as "retarded." On ABC´s The View Monday, co-host Barbara Walters astonishingly defended Maher saying, "I don´t think he intended it to be mean-spirited" (video follows with transcript and commentary): WHOOPI GOLDBERG: At a recent standup show in Las Vegas, comedian Bill Maher apparently called Sarah Palins five-year-old developmentally-challenged son Trig retarded. And Sarah blasted him on Twitter as a bully. Is that, is it, is he a bully? Is he a bad, what is he?

Wasn’t it the liberals who banned the word “retard” as unPC?
This is the first amendment at work, freedom of speech. Why is it good for some and not others? Society has made it loathsome to be retarded. We all have something imperfect. Accept it. Talk about it with truth. Ya, so thats what he is retarded. He cant do anything about it. The word police have conditioned us to feel shame for speaking truth because the truth may hurt someones feelings. Is that the kind of society we want to foster one that can only respond to fairy tales? I am a fat gimp. Thats what I am. I cant do anything about my bum leg.
I love Sarah Palin. I would campaign for her until the end of time. But she gives Bill Maher way too much power. He wants her attention and gets it every time he wants it. She should revel in the fact that Bills heart is full with her. He will say anything to make Sarah think about him even in a despicable way. Bill doesnt hurt Trig with this talk. Sarah shouldnt allow him to hurt her.
This celebrity slut has made a living unbelievably in the “spoken word” industry . . . she, having a hell of a speech defect, trots around like some kind of queen. I can’t stand looking at her or being made to listen to her.
He damned well did mean it.
Imagine Dennis Miller saying that Obama's daughters are "retards" because he doesn't think much of the president.
What say you BABS?
Are the kids "we-tahds" or not?
Did an anti-Obama comedian not "intend" that?
I'll wait for your answer.
Oh, I don't know, Whooped-ass. Let's see what you say about a comedian if he/she called your child 'retarded'.
C'mon, she's not particularly attractive, and can't even pronounce an "r" properly.
Maybe she's good in bed.
Makes me wonder how Tom Brokaw got HIS gig.
He was not making a joke, he is just a mean liberal.
same way Doris Kerns Goodman did it...on her knees
Retarded is a perfectly fine word, and I don’t mind that Maher used it.
I am tired of the PC police.
Wa Wa has always been retarded. I despise those that think it is okay to pick on and disparage little kids.
Trig has never done anything to Maher. Maher should feel shame, the fact that he does not shows he is low class trash.
Barbara, you should know than anyone else as you have a special needs child. I think you know he meant it as cruel and I am ashamed of you for backing him.
If she had only stopped at “I don’t think”, I could have agreed with her. Since she continued past those three words all I can say is, senility is sad.
Boy that’s an honest statement rarely mentioned !
Katie Koran Couric worked upper management like that too !
She like BAbawa preferred them married too
Cougar on the prowl.
or how bout maher calling barbara walters a retard because he thinks it’s not just a simple speech impediment she has?
But you could say that about any slur. I’m sure there are words people once used that Whoopi would object to now.
Has the worthless, dried-up, old hag Walters slipped further into dementia? Walters, and the rest of the dyke Liberal sisterhood on the ‘’view’’, are useless feeders. Unfit to waste the same oxygen that young Trig needs to survive and flourish. May they each contract horrible diseases and suffer excruciating pain and linger in agony until Satan finally claims their putrid souls.
Oh....yeah...hey, ‘’just joking’’
There. Makes it allll better now, doesn’t it.
