Yesterday on his radio show, right wing talker Michael Savage said that autism is “a fraud” and “a racket” and that “in 99 percent
of the cases, it’s a brat who hasn’t been told to cut the act out.” Savage then asserted that all these “brat[s]” need as a father to tell
them to “stop acting like a putz“:
That’s what autism is. What do you mean they scream and they’re silent? They don’t have a father around to tell them, ‘Don’t act like a
moron. You’ll get nowhere in life. Stop acting like a putz. Straighten up. Act like a man. Don’t sit there crying and screaming, idiot.
Michael Savage and Rush Limbaugh have absolutely nothing in common...I love Michael Savage, if you haven't listened to him, you ought to, when he
gets ranting he's a hoot! Savage is a definitely more of a Libertarian, he rags on Bush as much as the left.
If I'm not mistaken, for what's it worth, he has a PhD in either pharmacology or something related...and he takes a very big stand on the "drugging
up" of American and how the pharmaceutical industry is hell bent on over-medicating adults and children etc. That's probably where they got the
article from, he rants on this topic a lot, along with all the preservatives and stuff in the foods, and the hormones in our meat and milk, etc
As Much as Savage offends people, he ussaly knows what he is talking about. This is an old clip too, yesterday was a repeat.
Here is the full clip. Its not a great audio quaility. But, it gives you the WHOLE context. Something your not getting from media matters, but i know
thats not important to everyone
He has a PHD, from UCBerkely, in nutrition. And he got this 30 years ago, before 'nutrition' was mainstream... So this isnt just some random guy
talking out of his you know what, this is a guy that is an AUTHORITY in the feild of nutrition, and he is going to know more then ANYONE else on these
Is 99% a factual number, probaly not, is the number closer to 0%, doubt it.
However, i have heard Savage say the SAME thing about ADHD, he might have just goten the 2 confused... no tthat it makes it right, but its
Personaly, i think that with many of todays common 'mental' disorders, it is more of an effect of the persons upbringing, and an effect of the
Did the thread just get moved, from Breaking Alternative news, To General news... Then moved to Medical Conspiricies? Thats kinda funny...
He may have a PhD in Nutrition, but he knows jack scat about autism. For him to say something like that is pure idiocy. I sometimes listen to him
just to see what the fringe lunatics are talking about. He is a very bigoted man with delusions of grandeur.
Why would you even listen to Savage?
Are there actually people out there who need to be lectured by
You mean there are actually people who take him seriously and can't find
another radio station or who are fearful of silence.
If the choice is Savage or silence I choose silence and my own free thoughts.
If the choice is Savage or a guy reading the instructions to bake
bread. Guess what, if you listened to the guy tell you about bread
you may have actually learned someething instead of pouring
your freedom down the porta potty of radio talk show mongoloids.
First, heres a better clip, from a diffrent poster.
A lot of people get mad at Savage. For the most part, the people that get mad at him, are the people that have been fed a 10 sec clip, picked out by
some media group, ussaly media matters...
Just tune in and listen to his show... its on pretty much everwhere in the country, even super liberial cities like NY, DC, Chicago, LA, and even San
Fransicko where he boradcasts from 5 days a week for 3 hours (3-6pm)...
You can dissagree with a man on some issues, and even be highly offended, but the man does several things that you are just not going to get from
Speaks his mind
Live 1 man show
No politicaly correct garbage
Just listen, i mean, hes on RIGHT now... just listen before you take Media Matters talking points...
whiteraven, You are dead on about the first time you listen to savage.
I am sitting here laughing at all of you that are so "outraged" about Savage and his antics, I don't care what you say, he's a riot, and dead on
about a lot of things. Granted when he gets going I bet he covers his desk with spittle He's definitely passionate about his topics and
that's part of his charm.
And yes, you may be angered, but the truth does sting a bit. And yes TK I think he was probably mistaking Autism for ADHD which he also rants about
quite a lot. My favorite Savagism "Red Diaper Doper Babies"
