What a rude dope

Radio host angers parents of autistic children

I stopped listening to him years ago when he took pot shots at the entire Catholic church. He needs to be canned for such asinine statements. I give him one day with my boys before he cries for mercy.
Here's an excerpt:

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.'"


He needs prayers. Badly.

I saw that story this morning. He should take his own advice. What an idiot.

He's talking about the kids that are *misdiagnosed*, not the ones that are truly autistic. Michael Savage has been, once again, totally quoted out of context and everyone is throwing an "I'm offended" fit and it's really all very sad because he's angry about the rampant misdiagnosing of kids as "autistic" when they are not and this takes money and time away from those kids who truly have autism. If a kid acts like an out of control brat that does not mean he's automatically autistic! But this is the direction that the teachers and medical professionals are heading... And this is going to do a lot of harm for the truly autistic children and adults. THIS is what Michael Savage is getting at. He's right too!

I disagree, this is his exact quote:
"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.'"

99% is dead wrong.
And when I stopped listening to him, in 2006, here is what he said about my beloved church:
It is a pig story! It’s animal farm all over again. And also make no bones about it, it’s the greedy Catholic Church that was behind it because the people of America walked away from the molesters’ dens and they need to bring in people from the Third World who are still gullible enough to sit there and listen to the molesters…the Roman Catholic Church was behind this, the Roman Catholic Church started this a year ago. The Roman Catholic Church flooded the streets because they cannot get parishioners anymore amongst educated white people who have caught onto the racket and instead they need to import dummies to sit in the church pews. That’s the story and it is not difficult for you to understand—I’m telling you the truth. It’s all about greed. It’s greed at the top of the Catholic Church.

Make no mistake about why this is happening. This has nothing to do with compassion for Mexican workers. This has nothing to do with fairness for Mexican workers—it has to do with the greed…. That’s all there is to it. And that includes the Catholic Church pigs. And if you don’t like it, don’t listen to the show—I really don’t care anymore. I’m not going to be duped by this sanctimonious garbage that all churches are good and that the institution itself is good. Bah humbug. The institution is rotten from the top to the bottom.

He's a bitter bigot and regardless of his education and good points, he does what he does for shock.
If he hadn't given a 99% label, I would have given him the benefit of the doubt. His Catholic statements(there were many of them)were directed at all of us.
