About.com Blogger Says "Don't Waste Your Time On Savage"

Whilst reviewing my fellow Google page 1 hits on various "'Michael Savage' +autism" type Google searches, I stumbled across a certain Lisa Jo Rudy who wrote a piece on About.com that basically said, "Don't wast your time on Savage.". She seems to be criticizing the efforts, in particular, of a blogger named Cindy Sue Causey who put together quite a good piece on some of the planned Michael Savage protest events.

Lisa Jo Rudy seems to think that the time and effort people are putting into protesting Michael Savage would be better spent spending time with one's autistic children.

Well ... maybe ...

No, I don't think an UNDUE amount of time need be put into Michael Savage, nor do I think he should be taken off the air.

I do, however, think that, yes, a great deal of attention and scrutiny needs to be brought to this man.

Why?

Because he's willing to say the things that certain other very powerful people don't feel comfortable saying.

Michael Savage's comments need to be taken VERY seriously and people need to make it a point to as many people as possible just how wrong Michael Savage is.

Although - I'm beginning to wonder if Michael Savage's rantings might actually have been a backfire of his reading some of the works of John Best.

You see - if I understand this correctly, John Best is convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that, in particular, there are two young ladies in New England who are very vocal on autism issues who are absolutely, 100%, utterly fraudulent. This of course in spite of the fact that at least one of the two young ladies has posted her medical records in more detail than the average Presidential candidate.

But, let's entertain the notion for just a second that these are the two best actresses in North America. That still doesn't account for certain two-year olds I've run into who have tempers so bad they will beat their head bloody on the pavement and, yes, John Best's son, Sam.

In fact, John Best himself left a comment on my blog saying so much as Michael Savage was mistaken ... that there are some "fakes" and some very real cases of autism.

Actually, as psychotic as this suggestion may sound, I'm thinking the only expedient solution to this problem is to try to get John Best and Michael Savage on the phone - or - better yet - get them together in person. They both seem to have a similar view of the world. Perhaps John Best could at least convince Savage that Best's own son is autistic. I'm fairly sure Michael Savage would never doubt Best's ability to be a harsh disciplinarian and to try every draconian "training" method that has ever crossed the imagination of humanity.

Yes ... I'm thinking that might be what we might want to try, as crazy as it sounds.

We need to get John Best booked as a guest on Michael Savage's show ...

Whoa - knew NOTHING about these two women in England. That's quite an interesting slant... do you have any links or further info?

Thanks!

New England actually.

To be more complete, John Best has a list of a half dozen or so individuals who he thinks are "faking".

Wait a second ... I presume you're writing PROFESSIONALLY on autism topics and you've never run across John Best???? :)

Hi, and *thank you*.. :)

Was out tooling across the Internet, likely something akin to how you describe yourself finding information, and there you were..

Re the compliment on the Six. Almost Seven.. post, a lot of the information came originally from an entity called "Autism Action Network" that happens to have been new to me.. I just filled in some holes around what they had forwarded into the disability advocacy community..

Just did what I always do.. If I believe enough in something to forward it, it leaves these Fingertips intact.. I don't censor.. It's not my Right to make those kinds of Choices on behalf of others.. :)

Like you :: The firing part.. Hmmmmmm.

Accountable somehow.. Most definitely.

Spend just a few minutes expressing displeasure to the sponsors.. Indubitably.

Add Michael to a "Bite Me..!" list from which he would have to work exceptionally hard to ever find himself removed from.. Check.

Move on to the next anticipated case of blatant, baiting Disabilism. Done Deal. :)

Thank you again so much.. Stumbling on this was a pleasant surprise..

Peace and best wishes from North Georgia.. :)
