Some parents of autistic children have called for Savage's firing after he described autism as a racket last week. "In 99 percent of the cases, it's a brat who hasn't been told to cut the act out," Savage said on his radio program last Wednesday.
Savage offered no apology in a message posted Monday on his Web site. He said greedy doctors and drug companies were creating a "national panic" by overdiagnosing autism, a mental disorder that inhibits a person's ability to communicate.
On his radio show last week, he said: "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, you idiot.'"
Hear, hear! Kudos to those like Mr. Savage who expose the scam artists, lying doctors, and other justificators of indolence and subsidy!!!
(As you know I may be one of the handful of people on earth who believes that autism [for the most part] is a fictional disorder. The doctors tried to place the mark of Cain on me, too - but I wasn't buying. Sorry Charlie, no sale.)
