FUCK YEAH SPECIAL LYMPICSMonstrous hypertension record-setter Rahm Emanuel has A LOT OF SHIT TO DO AND DOESN’T HAVE TIME TO FUCKING HOST THIS FUCKING PANSY-ASS ROUNDTABLE SHIT, but he will GET IT OVER WITH and then will you people SHUT THE FUCK UP FINALLY. Apparently apologizing for a PRIVATE FUCKING REMARK wasn’t good enough for the FUCKING SHRIVERS and now what, he has to KISS SOME SHRIVER’S ASSHOLE and host a DELEGATION ARE YOU SERIOUS JESUS CHRIST OF FUCKING R–… WHATEVER YOU FUCKING CALL THEM… AT THE WHITE HOUSE, are you SERIOUS? FINE, let’s just FUCKING DO THIS…

You want a panel FINE HERE’S YOUR FUCKING PANEL:

Washington Wire reported earlier today that White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel privately apologized last week to the Special Olympics after the Journal reported that he used the word “retarded” in a derogatory manner.

But advocates for people with disabilities didn’t think that apology, coming in a phone call to Special Olympics head Tim Shriver, was enough.

Now, Emanuel is taking his contrition one step farther – hosting a delegation of advocates, including two people with mental disabilities, at the White House.

A statement from the Special Olympics issued late Tuesday described the session as a “face-to-face discussion with Rahm Emanuel about the suffering and pain of people with intellectual disabilities that is perpetuated by the use of the terms ‘retard’ and ‘retarded’ as well as the damage that can be done by the casual use of the R-word – even if it is not directed toward people with intellectual disabilities.”

THERE anything else? IS THERE ANYFUCKINGTHING FUCKING ELSE YOU FUCKING WANT Rahm to do, or can you FUCK OFF already?

The release said that the group will ask Emanuel to take “he R-word pledge at www.r-word.org and to join in the March 3, 2010 Spread the Word to End the Word campaign, as well as invite him to be a leader of change surrounding the pervasive and damaging use of the R-word.”

They want Rahm Emanuel to GO TO A FUCKING HYPHENATED FUCKING WEBSITE CALLED R-WORD and TAKE A FUCKING MOTHERFUCKER PLEDGE.

FUCKSHITFUCK fine, JESUS FUCK.

Emanuel Steps Up His Apology

    I think Rahm is less scary when he’s swearing up a blue streak and calling people retarded. It’s when he STOPS calling people fucking retards that we have to start worrying…

  • badmuthagoose

    I think retarded people should TAKE THE WORD BACK! Start using it ALL the time. If anyone says anything, get on their case, saying that YOU can say retarded, because you ARE retarded, but no one else who isn’t retarded can use the word.

    Poor ideas that formed that way due to lack of intellectual/moral rigor are, by definition, retarded. Must we cling to these hyper-PC fuckwads, and all of their retarded ideas? The left’s agenda is clearly retarded by such limitations.

    Just callin a spade a spade, also.

    [re=506719]Minnie Mean[/re]: my kid sister, in middle school, took up the less offensive term LD (learning disabled) as in “That’s so LD!”. The kids couldn’t figure out why the teachers got so upset.

    I think you missed a FUCK in there somewhere.

  • V572625694

    [re=506712]Dreadful Gate[/re]: Careful now:

    “Moron” was coined in 1910 by psychologist Henry H. Goddard from the Ancient Greek word μωρός (moros), which meant “dull” (as opposed to “sharp”), and used to describe a person with a mental age located between 8 and 12 on the Binet scale.[4] It was once applied to people with an IQ of 51-70, being superior in one degree to “imbecile” (IQ of 26-50) and superior in two degrees to “idiot” (IQ of 0-25). The word moron, along with others including “retarded”, “idiotic”, “imbecilic”, “stupid”, and “feeble-minded”, was formerly considered a valid descriptor in the psychological community, but it is now deprecated by psychologists.

    Hope that clears things up for you dimwits.

    If Rahm really wants to drive those fucking retards at the fucking roundtable crazy, he should tell ’em both to go sit at the fucking end.

  • simpethesis

    I haven’t thought of the word retarded as meaning someone with disabilities since I was in elementary school. Can we just accept the meaning that is inherent in the statement “that’s fucking retahded”? Mentally disabled is a completely different phenomenon.

    …the Ancient Greek word μωρός (moros), which meant “dull” (as opposed to “sharp”)….

    I don’t know where you got this horseshit from, but Liddell-Scott’s Greek-English Lexicon says that μωρός meant not only “dull” but “stupid, silly, foolish” and that this was the general meaning of the term.

    Έχουμε μια εγκέφαλο,’o μωρός!–which means, Get a brain, moran!

    Moronic–1) Of, or pertaining to, the angel Moroni. 2) The concept of angels in general.

    As for Rahm’s retardation, it’s not like retards are going to vote Democratic any time soon, are they? Retard advocates could do so much better than keep Rahm after school (detention) for calling fellow Dems retarded for not understanding why they need to quit fucking around and pass Obama’s agenda.

    What’s next in the PC world? A civil trial? Retards v. Rahm? Will Rahm be found liable by a jury of his dull normal peers?

    OK, over to you guys…

  • Pithaughn

    My friend had a funny thing he did when ever a retarded child would act up in public, say the indoor playground at a Miky D’s. He would pantomime pulling a handgun out , screwing on a silencer, jam a magazine in, pull back the dealy that chambers a round, assume the official FBI stance and take a few shots while making the gunshot w/ silencer sound. Sort of a loud PFFFFT sound. Then there would be a cacophony of jaws hitting the floor. As he was 6′ 2″ 265lbs no one saw fit to confront an obviously deranged bully. I sure do miss him.

  • Minnie Mean

    [re=506792]FMA[/re]: I like ‘special little angel’ even though it has twice the consonants of ‘retard’ and thus requires more effort on my part. It’s cute and funny. However – this does not solve the problem when not referring to a person. I don’t think “This fucking panel is so special little angeled!” is going to work. Then again, ‘doofus’ doesn’t work there either…

    Emanuel’s going along with this because if he doesn’t Axelrod will publish all the shit he’s been hoarding on everyone in Chicago politics for the last 20 years.

    Why? Because epilepsy has left Axelrod’s daughter with disability issues, and he wants to stay on the good side of the pain in the ass nun that runs the facility she lives at. Sister Rosemary scares politicians and bigwigs throughout the state, the same way people in India knew to get the fuck out of Mother Teresa’s way.

Too many of them are incensed that liberals are treading on their freedoms to discriminate and insult people all over the motherfucking place, but the second a liberal says something they can twist, note I did not say something they were actually offended at, kaboom, the entire country follows the faux outraged leader and blows up.

    And fuck Rahm Emanual too for going along with this shit. He should have held a press conference and called Sarah Palin a fucking motherfucking retard for communicating with the world with Facebook ghost-posts. And flipped off the press at half-finger while doing so. Obama would have gained more votes than lost. All the retards who vote are already registered as Republicans already.

  • desertwind

    Rahm is not very good at his job, is he?

    Rahm should move to Iowa. We have the word Retarded in our state laws, and I live a few blocks away from the local Association of Retarded Citizens center. Apparently we just don’t give a fuck about the word here in the midwest – maybe he should have used that as his excuse?

    Um, I dunno if you saw Sully’s post on this, but Palin actually named the baby for being retarded. Specifically, the medical term for Down Syndrome is Trisomy-G, which often gets abbreviated as Tri-G. So if her own baby’s name means “retarded,” it’s a bit rich of her to get mad at others . . .
