Radio “host” Michael Savage is a fucking idiot. Excuse my French.
Savage stated that nearly every child with autism is just “a brat who hasn’t been told to cut the act out.”
Direct quotes from this douche:
“My main point remains true. It is an overdiagnosed medical condition. In my readings, there is no definitive medical diagnosis for autism.”
“They don’t have a father around to tell them: ‘Don’t act like a moron. You’ll get nowhere in life.”
He also stated his belief that “99% of the cases” of autism were a result of lax parenting.
He said they should be told, “ ‘Straighten up. Act like a man. Don’t sit there crying and screaming, idiot.’ ”
Savage’s program, Savage Nation, is heard nationally on more than 350 stations.
As this dumb ass is a “shock jock” there isn’t even a point in threatening to boycott or writing letters to his boss. The more hoopla this gets, the more they will be thrilled.
I can only hope that the general public has gotten to the point of being educated enough to realize that this is all complete idiocy. This is just a throw-back opinion to the 50′s and 60′s where they blamed “refrigerator mothers” for causing autism, and kids were stuck in institutions never to be seen again.
I will not even post a link to any article about this man or this crap he spews. I will not give him even one bit of happiness by running the numbers up on his hits for the utter garbage he is spewing.
Or come and meet my son, who has autism. And yes, he has a father. And no, he isn’t a brat, he isn’t spoiled. He has a neurological disorder.
And at least he doesn’t have “I’m-an-asshole-for-pay” disease.
