I heard the entire show last week when Savage was talking about Autism and of course Media Matters slanted the statements to fit their left wing agenda. They seemed to forget to mention that Dr. Savage was criticizing the misdiagnosing of children by doctors, that are pushers for the drug companies these days.
Savage also claimed that some parents are claiming their child has a learning disability, so they could get extra public assistance.
I am sure the left wingers like that children are being medicated, because it is easier to brainwash them with their socialist ideologies and perversion.
Savage did lose his cool, but it was towards the corruption of the doctors and drug companies, not the Autistic children or their parents.
Nice try Media Matters. Have you ever heard of something called Freedom of Speech?
Progressives = Stalinists.......
Here is Michael Savage's response to The Autism Controversy
My comments about autism were meant to boldly awaken parents and children to the medical community's attempt to label too many children or adults as "autistic."
Just as some drug companies have overdiagnosed "ADD" and "ADHD" to peddle dangerous speed-like drugs to children as young as 4 years of age, this cartel of doctors and drug companies is now creating a national panic by overdiagnosing "autism, for which there is no definitive medical diagnosis!
Many children are being victimized by being diagnosed with an "illness" which may not exist, in all cases. Just a few weeks ago doctors recommended dangerous anti-cholesterol drugs for children as young as 2 years of age! Without any scientific studies on the possible dangers of such drugs on children, corrupt doctors made this controversial, unscientific recommendation.
Increasingly, our children are being used as profit centers by a greedy, corrupt medical/pharmaceutical establishment. As the brother of a severely disabled person who suffered and died in a New York "snake-pit" of a "mental hospital," I know first-hand what true disability is.
To permit greedy doctors to include children in medical categories which may not be appropriate is a crime against that child and their family. Let the truly autistic be treated. Let the falsely diagnosed be free.
