My British dad used to use that phrase: "Don't show your ignorance."
And in the context of Ann Coulter (who tweeted the above Monday during the final debate in the U.S. presidential election) it fits like a glove.
I'm so glad I don't live in a country where ignorance and hatred are accepted as "free speech."
The media describe Ann as a Conservative pundit.
However, a pundit -- "a learned person" who "makes comments or judgments in an authoritative manner" hardly describes someone whose best criticism of the United States President is to call him "the retard."
There isn't anything learned or authoritative about tweeting a schoolyard taunt that has been used to dehumanize people like my son for decades -- a word that isn't even used in medical circles anymore.
I took a quick look at Ann's website , and it spews hatred for marginalized groups, so I guess it's not surprising that she'd add a slur against people with intellectual disabilities to her arsenal.
What does surprise me is that Mitt Romney, the Republican contender for the U.S. presidency, would not publicly call her on it.
With friends like Ann Coulter in your camp -- who needs enemies?
There were a couple of news outlets that did report on just how offensive, infantile and "unfunny" she is.
