John Franklin Stephens, Special Olympics Athlete, Pens Open Letter To Ann Coulter Over 'Retard' Remark

Commented Oct 24, 2012 at 12:37:34 in Impact

“There is just no place for this kind of remark. ANYWHERE. It's too bad that people are so callous or ignorant to see the beauty in those with disabilities. Take autism for example. 1 in 88 children are on the spectrum (that's a lot of kids), yet still people are ignorant. To learn more about autism go to http://www.centerforautism.com/

“I'm not sticking up for a cheater. I'm sticking up for what he represented to the cancer/cycling community before all this came out. He was a hero, a story of hope. Now he's just a story of sham. Sure he doped. But so did the rest of professional cycling.

So what I'm saying is, I'm sticking up for the beacon of hope he was to thousands suffering from cancer. I'm standing up for the hero he was to thousands of young American kids getting on a bike for the first time.

But please, attack me personally because you don't agree with me on a topic. If it makes you feel better than maybe it's worth it.”

“A much better, well thought out reply. I appreciate it. It's good to have some mature, well-thought banter. I see what your saying. And I didn't mean that Lance SHOULD be looked at differently for his overcoming cancer. But the matter of the fact is that the worldwide audience DOES view him different because of his past. And because of that past, both in cycling and in cancer patients, he is looked at as somewhat of a hero. There are thousands and thousands of young cancer patients that see Lance overcoming cancer and winning the TDF as a miracle and an inspiration for them to get through their pain. Beyond that Lance has brought popularity in cycling to the U.S. bringing thousands and thousands of new riders into the sport. Now am I saying that, that makes it okay for him to dope? No. I'm merely saying what is the use of the USADA to convict him now 7 years after the fact. He's old, no longer a player in the professional world. I mean why go after only him? I'm just saying what is the greater good here? Ridding him of his title that he last won over 7 years ago or letting him keep the persona that gave hope to a niche of people that needed it very badly/inspiring many to pick up a bike for the first time and try a new sport? This is only my opinion and I welcome rebuttals as I'd love to hear”

“So your telling me that Lance alone has tainted cycling as a sport? That it's all  his fault and without him there would be no drugs? What about all the other cyclists in the tours that he won in. How do you know they didn't blood dope? You can insult me and my arguments all you want, but it doesn't change the truth. Perhaps next time you should write back with an argument that is better than calling mine 'pathetic'.”

“Sticking up for a cheater is pathetic. Do you cheat, too?”

kleinsteinberg on Sep 13, 2012 at 07:21:01

“Where did I say that it was Lance alone? I only responded to your point, and it was you who was only talking about Lance. Of course you are right about all (well probably not all) cyclists and it has been going on for decades. So no, he is not the ony one who (allegedly) tainted cycling as a sport. What you appeared to imply was that alenient view should be taken because he had bravely overcome cancer. That I object to, because when you get on the bike to fight for the yellow jersey, that point is irrelevant! Oscar Pistorious is not asking for a bonus because he is running on blades! If you enter the competition , your personal history is irrelevant and you play by the rules. As in athletics, if the man or woman who won took drugs, they should be disqualified. Should the one who came second automatically be declared the winner? No, he should be checked for drugs, they will have his samples. Go down the line, and if you get to number 10, and he still took drugs, abandon the event! The tour de France is a massive event, but if everybody took drugs, what#s the point of hosting it, or following it:
I hope that you will find this argument better, and I did not say anywhere that I thought Lance alone had tainted the sport. You only feel insulted because you do not want to acceot another opinion.”

“So sad to see. In a sport where doping is commonplace, for an organization to go after only one individual, 7 years after their last TDF win.

The real tragedy here goes out to all those young riders out there or young and old cancer victims out there that looked up to Lance as a hero, as someone that beat all the odds.

This ruling taints cycling as a sport, and kills the morale of thousands of cancer victims world worldwide. Even if he did dope, it is the USADA's responsibility to see the bigger picture here, to be able to grasp the scope at which their actions have upon tearing down Lance.

What use is it now? 7 years later? And why only Lance?”

Jeffrey Jensen on Sep 11, 2012 at 00:05:39

“He is one of many who have been caught. Some would say the last of his group. It is not only Lance the other 3 or 4 cyclists who have been caught were all on his team at one point and all said that they learned how to dope from him. It has been uncommon knowledge for a little while that Lance was doping like when his heart grew to 4x avg, or his lung cap. grew to 2x avg vol, or his Vo2 grew to 10x normal. It was like watching Barry Bonds grow like a teen in mid life and be like "what? me dope? prove it". Anyone who is not feed the narrative has had a firm grasp of what was to come for many, many years now.”

kleinsteinberg on Sep 10, 2012 at 16:48:38

“because he is the only one who won the Tour de France! You just throw cancer victims and drug cheats in one hat, and the only one who tainted cycling as a sport (if he did take drugs) is Lance, not the people who banned him. The bigger picture? Lancey in the sky with diamonds? Your arguments are not pathetic, they are not even arguments.”

“This sparks a very interesting debate. Can the food you eat drastically change you? Can it manipulate your child if you're pregnant? Take for instance right now we have a lot of GMO's and substances in our food that weren't here 100 years ago. And now look at the rate of autism, it's shot up dramatically in the last century. Sure that can be attributed to new diagnosis, but still one's got to think, can the food we eat now influence the next generation?
