There he goes again. The Fargo Forum’s resident left wing flame-thrower couldn’t resist vilifying Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) after Cramer’s quickly deleted tweet stating “She’s retarded” in reference to actions by Cong. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
Mike likes to pile on when he thinks he’s got red meat. Mike can’t help but pull out all the anti-Christian, personally vindictive insults. He’s gotten very mean over the years when it comes to promoting his brand of coarse, unfair, left-wing rhetoric.
Sen. Cramer’s version of the events is clear. If you like Sen. Cramer, you believe him. If you don’t like, you now think you have confirmation he is a monster. Sen. Cramer states that two circumstances came in to play when he wrote his original tweet; fat-finger and auto-complete. We all know the helpful but sometimes very unhelpful auto-complete employed by software when writing on either a PC or a smartphone. We also know all too well what fat-finger means. I’ve probably corrected 20 words thus far because I fat-fingered my keyboard.
Sen. Cramer states he meant to tweet “She’s ridiculous.”
Reasonable people can disagree about this. It certainly is out of character for him to tweet, say or write anything like this. Perhaps, in a moment of frustration with Pelosi, he really did tweet, “She’s retarded.” Perhaps he quickly recognized his insensitivity and deleted the tweet. Or, perhaps it is as he said; he was a victim of fat-fingering and auto-complete.
The fact remains that probably no retarded, i.e. cognitively impaired, person would have known about this issue had it not been for McFeely and others like him. Do you think McFeely took that into account when he wrote his hateful article? Do you think the Forum editorial staff stand behinds and encourages this type of writing from its employees?
