Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

PETA finds source of autism: cow’s milk

Is there no shame that these individuals feel for crap like this?  From WABC-TV:

The animal-rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has put up a billboard in Newark claiming there is a link between cow’s milk and autism.

The group says the billboard shows a bowl of milk and cereal with the tagline “Got Autism?” in imitation of the “Got Milk?” campaign.

The sign also claims that studies have shown a link between cow’s milk and autism. The group cites two European studies that link autism to milk consumption and show a link between dairy-free diets and improved autism symptoms. …

This will no doubt come as a huge shock to parents of autistic kids who breastfed their kids and didn’t give them any dairy products.  When you have to lie in order to bring people to your point of view, that means your point of view is deficient, weak, and full of holes.  PETA has proved that time and again.

By the way, for those who know someone with autism, I leave you with this thought, from John 9:1-3:

1 As He passed by, He saw a man blind from birth.

2 And His disciples asked Him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he would be born blind?”

3 Jesus answered, “It was neither that this man sinned, nor his parents; but it was so (D)that the works of God might be displayed in him.

No one is being punished by God by having autistic kids, relatives, or friends.  Please remember that.

White Sox manager unveils new school for autism

Kudos to Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen for this:

Dozens of friends and family members of children with autism—along with White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen—came together Wednesday to celebrate a new, state-of-the-art school and research center on the West Side that could set the standard for autism education. Here are a few key questions and answers about the center:

Q—Why was Guillen at the school Wednesday?

A—Guillen helped unveil White Sox Field, a pristine softball field adjacent to the school. The Sox organization donated $1 million to the new facility, and Easter Seals officials decided it would be fitting to name the field after the team.

The Sox manager spoke passionately about his interest in helping kids with autism both here in Chicago and in his native Venezuela.

“Don’t treat them like somebody else,” Guillen said. “Treat them like the human beings that they are. Give the best day to these kids every day. That’s the main reason we helped build this field, to give them as many great days as possible.”

Guillen is known as a foul-mouthed hothead, and truth be told, he’s earned that reputation.  However, he deserves much praise for his involvement in this worthwhile endeavor.

Exit prediction: Michael Savage won’t be attending any school tours there anytime soon.

Michael Savage needs an #sskicking of Biblical proportions

I am not a violent guy.  A smart aleck?  Yeah.  A sarcastic schmuck?  Sure.  Sometimes (some might say “more than frequently”) a jerk.  Believe it or not, I’m really not proud of that.

But man, what I wouldn’t give for just five minutes alone with Michael Savage right about now!  The thrashing I would give to that cretin would be legendary.  UFC fighters would pay me to learn some of what I would do to Savage.  From the NY Daily News:

WOR radio talk show host Michael Savage, who makes a good living being outrageous, found himself in the middle of a new firestorm Monday after he branded most autistic children fakers who just need tougher parenting.

“In 99% of the cases, it’s a brat who hasn’t been told to cut the act out. That’s what autism is. What do you mean they scream and they’re silent?” Savage said last week in remarks that lit up the Internet over the weekend.

“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.'”

Ed Moffitt, 75, proudly showed a picture of Bob, his 8-year-old grandnephew. “Bob can’t speak. He never called Savage any names,” Moffitt said.

“We are dying to hear him say ‘Mommy’ or ‘Daddy.’ And [Savage] says that he is just acting out?” said the boy’s grandfather, retired NYPD officer Bob Moffitt. “It hurts me.”

On the air last night, Savage said his comments were “ripped out of context” by “far left Stalinists.”

He said he was talking about kids who were “misdiagnosed,” but repeated his contention that most children who are called autistic aren’t really sick.

Last month, Savage blamed the prevalence of autism on “a racket” to get disability payments dreamed up by “poorer families who have found a new way to be parasites on the government.” … 

I am trying to compose myself as I type this, and attempting to do so is proving more challenging than trying to reason with a moonbat.

Anyone who knows me well on a personal level recognizes my sensitivity to and awareness of autism.  Many people out there do not know what autism is, and I do my best to educate people when possible.  I recognize that many people who are underinformed on autism got their limited exposure to autism from the movie Rainman, and that’s a shame, since very few autistic folks are savants like Dustin Hoffman’s character.  Chances are that you will never meet an autistic savant.

Lack of education is one thing.  But a total callous disregard for those who suffer from an illness that affects 1 out of every 150 babies born is inexcusable.  Savage says that his comments were “ripped out of context” by “far left Stalinists.”  Considering I am the polar opposite of a “Stalinist”, I would love for someone to tell me in what context I am to infer his comments, because right now, I’m seething.
