Allowed to use the word RetardThe MSM is talking about how Sarah Palin is saying how Emanuel’s use of the word “Retard” is incredibly offensive, but Rush Limbaugh using it in the same context is perfectly acceptable. They are saying this is a double standard, I must jump to her defense and show how it’s not.
Definitely allowed to use the word RetardSarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh and the rest of the conservatives are allowed to use the R word, but the rest of the world is not. It’s just like how black people can use the word nigger and it’s not offensive but if a white person uses the word it is. Gay people can use the word faggot to describe themselves and that is not an insult, but if a straight person calls them that word it is an insult.
In the same way it is perfectly acceptable for conservatives to use the word retard because it defines their policies, but if a normal person uses it is considered an insult.
The idea behind minorities, like conservatives, using terms used to degrade them is to lessen their impact. Like how a hooligan used to be a degrading term aimed at the Irish, they took over the word and now it refers to people up to no good of any Nationality.
The conservatives are just trying to take the word that is used to describe them and take away the hate behind it; hopefully they will take it farther and use it to describe all their plans.
They can talk about how they want to bring back the retarded policies of deregulation of banks that caused the financial meltdown.
They can be proud of the retarded war in Iraq that drained Treasury and turned the world against us.
They can boast about their retarded tax plan that led to zero job growth in this country since it was enacted.
They can show how their retarded policies haven’t done one thing to help America in the last 20 years.
Just imagine if they had a retarded convention with all the retards gathering and holding up misspelled signs, opposing the “Pubic Option” or telling Obama to read the “Consitution”.
They are all allowed to use the word RetardWhat Palin is doing is using this opportunity to proudly show the world that she and her fellow conservatives are truly fucking retards.
