Coulter and the “R” word

25 Oct


After the foreign policy debate Ann Coulter tweeted her support for Romney being nice to “the retard” referring to Obama. Not only does this prove that women can be just as ignorant as men, it clearly shows the turn politics has taken in recent years. I can’t imagine anyone saying something like this about the President 10-15 years ago. She has gotten a lot of backlash for her comments from reporters, the Special Olympics, and parents of children with special needs.


As someone in a position to be a role model for young women, she did a very poor job at setting a positive example. It’s become common knowledge that using a word like that is completely inappropriate and someone in a position to show a strong, independent woman just threw all her respect out the window.

    oh, wow. i volunteer with Hillcroft’s Thursday night rec program and i think that this type of thinking is terrible. people need to realize what it is they are actually saying when they use certain words.

    Ann Coulter has always gotten her fame from her shock value. I remember during the DNC she tweeted how Sandra Fluke was having sex with Bill Clinton and getting live abortions on stage. Based on what she says on a regular basis, I doubt she regrets what she said. I just hope people who see it know how wrong she is

    Anne Coulter has always been someone that I did not like. She once said something along the lines of if all women we killed, there would be no democrats. I just think she is an example of how women are working against other women in achieving equality. I just feel like that she has no respect for her own sex. It has surprised me to learn just how many women think like her. I’m not sure where this comes from and I as a woman cannot understand her thinking. However, everyone is entitled to their opinion and I do applaud her for sticking to her guns despite the negativity she receives from many women and also men.
