Canary Party VP: “your judgement is compromised on this because of your autism”


By Jake Crosby

After repeated denials of reports that she made discriminatory statements about me, Vice President of Canary Party Ginger Taylor has finally admitted that she believes my criticism of her superior, Canary Party Chairman Mark Blaxill, is because of my autism and not because of his continued role in hijacking and undermining the congressional autism hearings. In a Facebook message to me, she wrote (boldface mine):

Jake… I am tell [sic] you this because I have respect you [sic] and I believe that you are better than all this.

You are making poor choices.

You are slashing and burning people who care about you.

I WANT to believe that being this cruel, that making these poor choices are because of your autism, because you do not see the extent of the damage that you are doing to good people doing good work, and NOT because you actually realize how much harm you are doing.

So yes… I beileve [sic] that your judgement is compromised on this because of your autism, because the alternative is that you mean to tear our friends apart and hurt them. And I just don’t want to believe that you are that cruel of a man.

If I have misjudged you, and you are hurting people on purpose, then please let me know and I will be happy to retract my belief. But until you tell me that you truly see how much damage you are doing, and that you don’t care, I will continue to believe that you are not doing this out of spite, but out of not being able to see the impact of your actions.

Previously, Ginger Taylor denied telling people in the autism community that my autism was the explanation for my criticisms of her former employer, Mark Blaxill, but now she has expressed her bigotry directly to me, in a Facebook message that defies logic. She offers only two explanations for my criticisms: 1) “spite” and 2) my autism – while never actually addressing any of the issues I have raised with her or others in Canary Party.

Since my first article on how the Coalition for SafeMinds‘ hijacking of the congressional hearing was published last February, Mark Blaxill waited five months to publicly address any of the revelations about his role in undermining the hearings, and only then in response to similar concerns raised by philanthropist Barry Segal on Age of Autism – the website Blaxill both edits and sponsors. In his comments, he gave contradictory information about his relationship with the lobbyist working under him prior to the last hearing and then called my reporting about his role “delusional overall.” He also said he refused to address any such criticism of him again.

Now added to the long and growing list of reasons Canary Party should be shut out of the congressional autism hearings permanently is Vice President Ginger Taylor’s admitted bigotry against people with autism. Her willingness to dismiss them for their views is characteristic of the dismissals by Canary Party and affiliated groups pertaining to criticism of their activities within the months since the November hearing. Such bigotry compromises Canary Party’s entire leadership.

Over the years, Mark Blaxill has directly accused at least one other critic (Jonathan Mitchell, via email), of irrational thinking due to his autism. Last spring, I learned that both Mark Blaxill and Ginger Taylor were using my autism to discredit me. It now seems that Blaxill is letting his subordinate do his dirty work for him.

29 Thoughts on “Canary Party VP: “your judgement is compromised on this because of your autism”

    Hi Jake,

    Saw this piece this morning and wanted to add a few things.

    First, I thought I would post the next part of the message that I sent to you to give a better context on the whole point of my exchange with you, which was to try to figure out what you were trying to achieve, what you wanted, and to see if there was a way to mend the relationships that have been so badly damaged. Including ours. Well specifically ours.

    “Jake… I truly don’t understand why you are doing this. All the lashing out and accusations to people trying to reach out to you.

    If that is truly the person you think I am… sabotaging you… then I don’t know where to go from here.
    You are “friends” with me on fb. It implies a good faith relationship. .. not one where personal attacks are appropriate.

    Do you want to be my friend.. give me the benefit of the doubt and try to work on things… try to understand each other… then lets try to do that. But I am not open to a “friendship” where I am tried in absentia by you, convicted and punished… and where you launch attacks on our friends and colleagues on my page.

    If u think I that I am horrid then why r u still friends with me and talking to me? I want to belie e it is because you don’t want to burn this bridge.

    Do you want to try to actually work this out as friends?”

    So many people have reached out to you to see how to make things better, and many of them have given up after receiving difficult responses from you. I have not done that yet. I am still hoping that we can understand one another and find a way to navigate this.

    • I’ll respond to the below comment when I have the time, but for now I will respond again to that FB message you re-posted (even though I already responded to it via FB and you never replied).

      Becky Estepp and Erik Nanstiel blocked me, and Mark Blaxill unfriended me.

      Erik blocked me after I threatened to report him to FB for cyberbullying on YOUR thread where you were similarly nasty to me and supported his attacks.

      Now you are threatening to unfriend me on Facebook like Mark did. While that’s up to you, all this is the complete opposite of reaching out.

      Your claims that I made personal attacks, lashed out, or convicted and punished you in absentia are completely fallacious

  2. Ginger Taylor on September 29, 2013 at 2:37 pm said:


    I need some help understanding your accusation against me.

    You have correctly reported that I believe that your judgement in how you have navigated dealing with the complaints you have, and the relationships you have, has been compromised because of your autism. But I don’t follow how that amounts to bigotry.

    1. bigoted attitudes; intolerance toward those who hold different opinions from oneself.

    Bigotry is a really harsh charge. And frankly a little painful for me to be accused of being bigoted against those with autism, as I have spend years fighting for them. And defending you specifically:

    And the fact that I have reached out to you like a half dozen times this year, and I am continuing to do so, hardly suggests an intolerance on my part. On the contrary. I still consider you my friend, and I have no intention of burning that bridge, because I think that you are going to come to have a better understanding of this whole problem sometime in the future and will want to repair these relationships.

    You have written: “Previously, Ginger Taylor denied telling people in the autism community that my autism was the explanation for my criticisms of her former employer, Mark Blaxill…”

    I don’t believe that “your autism is the explanation for your criticisms.” I do believe that your autism should be taken into account in evaluating your criticisms, and they way you have chosen to handle them. You once claimed that I told people not to listen to you, because you had autism. Not true. I merely think that your claims and your actions should be closely examined because your autism seems to me to be coloring your objectivity on things.

    You have a disability. The hallmarks of that disability are difficulty in seeing what is appropriate behavior, perseverating on things, difficulty putting yourself in another’s shoes, not correctly interpreting other’s emotions or intentions. I see all of that at play here. That does not remotely mean that I think that you should not be tolerated or that you should be dismissed out of hand.

    You seem to me to be taking things that are your speculation, and reporting them as fact (why Mark testified instead of Brian). And to be turning your subjective opinion about how you think things should have gone, and making it a matter of right and wrong (you didn’t like Mark’s testimony, I did, just because you didn’t like it, does not mean it was destructive or wrong.)

    You are publishing people’s private emails and messages, when it is not “news” and with out their permission. That is not appropriate. There are no crimes here, just peoples actions or opinions that you didn’t like or agree with. And after you have done so, you have been upset when those whom you have wronged don’t trust you and don’t want to stay in touch with you.

    Even though, one way or another, everyone has addressed your concerns to the extend it is appropriate to do so, you are still writing about the same issues that have been settled. You are harping on your perceptions of personal wrongs between people who are now working together closely and don’t have problems with one another.

    I look at that and think “autism.” Am I wrong?

    I have not heard you explain to me how this is not autism, or what your motivation is for this, or … I don’t know… I wrote to you and asked you to help me understand what you want, what you are trying to get out of this, what changes should be made… but I have not heard any of that. You just launched an attack on me.

    If your disability was physical, and I pointed out that you could not run fast because you had only one leg, and that should be taken into account when evaluating your physical activities, that is not bigotry. That is just a factual reporting of the impacts of a disability. So how is my opinion that your autism is impacting your perceptions/choices here bigotry?

    When ever I have talked about you, which has been rare, I have always made it clear that I have a great deal of affection for you. I have said, that everyone loves Jake, everyone is heartbroken at being attacked by him, and that no one wants to respond publicly because they don’t want to be perceived as attacking him back. That we all thought that this was something that you would come out of and want to mend your relationships.

    When I see your writing, I see you as someone who does not understand how the people you are attacking really feel about you.

    After this started, we were in DC lobbying and ten of us were having dinner together. Everyone was chatting happily at the table, discussing the great response we were getting from the congressional meetings, and I looked over at Dan and Mark, who were slumped over and looked like their dog had just died. I heard Dan say something to the effect of, “I’ve tried everything. I don’t know what else to do.” So I asked what was wrong. They looked at me and just said, “Jake.”

    Those men love you, Jake. They have been so proud of you and they were crushed that you went after them so unfairly. I have had a conversation with Mark since where he was in tears because of the way you treated him. As a matter of fact, of all the people who have been hurt by your actions, I have only heard from ONE who was angry with you. Everyone else just feels like you have taken a baseball bat to them. They have all been grieving over this. And feel hopeless on how to fix it. Because no matter what approach has been taken, you have not found anyone’s responses acceptable.

    The fact that you cannot see that after almost a year, well I don’t have another explanation for that except that your perception is compromised because of your autism.

    Because… again… I don’t want to believe that you actually see how much your friends love you, how hurt they have been by your attacks, how they are retreating out of not wanting to be hurt again by you, and that would just continue to hurt them knowing how hard it has been for them.

    I can’t believe you are that guy who would publicly attack these people knowing how much they have sacrificed for our kids and our cause, and how personally hurt they are by your actions.

    I want to believe that you just don’t see it because of your autism.

    So… for the record… I am not bigoted against you… and have no intention of closing the door on you, and I will always remain open to repairing this relationship when the attacks stop, good faith is restored and you want to have reciprocity. Friendships are a two way street.

    And also for the record. It is really hard to know how to navigate this problem, because I don’t know what the rules are. Are we friends or are we adversaries?

    You are facebook friends with me, you have my number, so it seems to me that you could just pick up the phone and find out if I am your friend or your adversary and either fix things or end things. But you are in this strange place where we are facebook friends, we have private messages where I am trying to fix the relationship, but you report on me as if I am Paul Offit, who won’t be in the same room with you. In fact I was reaching out to you several times this spring, even invited you to call me, and you never responded.

    So you treat me like an adversary on the level of Offit or Mnookin, and write about me publicly… but… well others who have unfriended you on FB after being attacked by you, you have criticized them for it.

    So see where the problem is? Friends give each other the benefit of the doubt and don’t attack one another publicly, and adversaries attack each other publicly. You have called me a bigot. So am I your adversary? Because I don’t feel that way at all. I feel like we are friends having a huge misunderstanding.

    Are we friends or do you consider us adversaries?

    • LOL, this is great!!! A liar tells Jake he’s not smart enough to criticize her because he has autism. The liar insults him in the process since Jake has Asperger’s which means he’s not even slightly compromised mentally as actual autistic people are. Then said liar pleads on Jake’s heartstrings about how much their friendship means to her. Oh, boo hoo. Poor Ginger feels soooo bad I’m starting to feel sorry for the poor girl myself.
      Jake’s an intelligent guy who sees through liars just like I do. Ginger is so deviant that she deleted a picture of my car from the Canary Party page that had the words “FLU SHOTS CAUSE AUTISM” painted on both sides of it. From this, we saw that Ginger doesn’t like anyone telling the public the truth about autism as they drive down the highway. She’d prefer to keep these things confined to the cage of a Facebook page where the general public won’t see it. Ginger also banned me from the page because she didn’t like me telling anyone the truth. And, she blocked me. I don’t know why but maybe she didn’t want me laughing at her for acting like such a fool.
      Yes, I’m an adversary of the Canary Party and their associated groups who consistently lie about autism and how to solve the problem. I’m hurt that Ginger didn’t try to play on my emotions to shut me up the way she’s crying to Jake. She did try to insult me in some personal emails though by thinking she could lie to me. So, I encouraged her to provoke her to lie some more. She was dumb enough to comply and gave me a good laugh.
      Jake, these people are all degenerate liars and you did the right thing to expose their deception. Here’s the picture of my car that Ginger deleted. This is how people should sway public opinion about autism. It’s free!

    • “I have not heard you explain to me how this is not autism…”

      So I have to explain to you how my positions are not motivated by my autism after you’ve summarily dismissed them? But your superior Mark Blaxill’s contradictory response is “appropriate”?

      Ginger, you are a bigot; you also are a hypocrite for asking me to give you the benefit of the doubt when you have not begun to do the same for me. I deserve to be listened to just like anybody else, without prejudice, stigma or being “examined” for my autism as you call it. I don’t owe any explanation for how my autism has nothing to do with my positions, but Mark Blaxill owes a consistent explanation for his role in SafeMinds’ misrepresentation of Dr. Brian Hooker – who organized the congressional hearing to begin with – to congressional staff. That Blaxill refuses to do, and he refused to do it since before my first article even ran on the Bolen Report – opting to insult me instead.

      Despite being copied on that email, Dan Olmsted lied to his readers that Blaxill was never given a chance to respond, that my article was “unsourced” and Olmsted even libeled me by alleging I invaded peoples’ privacy. I never had any intention of directing criticism at him before this. Otherwise he would not have been the first person I submitted my article to for publication, which he of course rejected. Despite your claims, I was very fair to both Blaxill and Olmsted. If Blaxill cried about me to you, he should have cried out of guilt for what he had done, not out of self-pity for being caught.

      Mark Blaxill is trying to get out of explaining himself by trying to discredit me for having autism. And with your self-admitted bias in his favor, you were more than happy to help him out long before you were the subject of criticism in any of my writing. As you can see on my Facebook thread, Dr. Hooker is outraged about this as are others. You also can’t seem to stop using violent imagery to characterize what has been entirely peaceful opposition on my part. If you don’t like being put in the same category as Offit and Mnookin, don’t put yourself there by resorting to their kinds of tactics.

      We may still be listed as “friends” on Facebook, but your behaviors towards me are not those of a friend. Mark Blaxill unfriended me on Facebook months ago, and you can just as easily do the same as it would be consistent with your actions towards me anyway. My friendship with Mark Blaxill was based on what I thought was a mutually-shared cause. But as it became more and more apparent that he had his own agenda instead, the point of our friendship seemed rather defeated. For you, however, your relationship with him comes first. We value different things.

    Here are my thoughts .

    Jake , if my child attains anywhere near the skill level that you operate at then I’ll be ecstatic .

    Ginger , here is the deal as I see it , this vaccine conspiracy has been occurring for up to 30 years now , and accelerating in nature . Our resistance has been ever present for much of that time , because I knew the rumours about Vaccines & Autism , but was co-erced into vaccination against my better jusdgement .
    And it turns out all the rumours about mercury and vaccines and autism are true …. no doubt about it.
    Anyway my point is this , where is the log-jam within our movement , why are opportunities consistently missed , how is it the most heinous crime of all time is being allowed to continue with so little fight back ?

    The Suffragettes won the vote for women .
    The aparthied movement brought down the White Supremacist Govt of South Africa .
    The Cold War came to an end largely due to mass discontent eg Poland , Romania
    The Fathers for Justice have been very high profile & successful.
    The Arab Spring toppled corrupt Arab govts\leaders across the Arab world .
    But the autism holocaust , the mass poisoning of babies across the whole world doesnt get a mention –
    how can this be ? And the Tsunami of Vaccine Poison is only now coming to the fore – we are yet to reach the peak , and there is hardly a squeak out of us ? So ginger you tell me ? What is going on ? I’d love to hear your response ?

  4. Sorry, Jake. It looks like I stifled conversation again. I have a nasty habit of doing that when liars are involved. None of the liars mentioned here have ever had the nerve to question anything I said about them in public. You’d think that one of these illustrious alleged leaders would do that but Blaxill, Olmsted, and Ginger have never said a word to me. JB Handley once aimed a veiled threat at me but then he slunk away like a typical weasel.

    It’s curious how Ginger attacks you with the words that people use behind your back, Jake. Nothing but cowardice from these people who pawn themselves off as leaders. This is one of those cheap psychological ploys that obnoxious misfits pull to try to make people feel bad for not heeding their supposedly wise words. It works best when they gang up on you to do this, inspires guilt or something if you let them feed it to you.

    It can be daunting when a herd of liars tries to put you down for not accepting their deranged philosophy of deception. You might even question yourself when they add in that crap about how much they care for you. Of course, you know that’s not true, not one word of it. If these creeps cared about anyone with autism or Asperger’s, they would have pursued intelligent tactics over the years to stop babies from being poisoned. They had their chances to do that but all they ever did was lie about it. They’ll even show you that they agree with me because none of them will come back here to challenge me. So, that confirms for you that you trusted your own mind and you were right. Don’t let these psychopaths bother you, not even a little. You’re better than they are.

  5. White Rose on October 1, 2013 at 7:42 am said:

    Ginger ? where are you ? please respond …..are you a serious campaigner against vaccines crimes ?

    • Ginger and her pals are campaigners against truth. They make lots of noise when they think they can con parents. When somebody calls their bluff though, they crawl back under their rocks and hide.

  6. White Rose on October 1, 2013 at 9:32 am said:

    Look at this article announcing the huge success of vaccines trials in Chad for meningitis .
    I simply cannot believe the brazen bare faced liars of the GAVI-WHO alliance against the people of the world .

    how many children\babies did that trial MURDER ……up to 1000 I understand …..
    Anyone who doubts the criminal level of vaccination , need only research this little episode .

  7. Hey Ginger, here’s a chance to do something useful and redeem yourself in the eyes of all the parents who trusted you. Go put this link on your Canary Party page and tell everyone that a real leader showed up and told you how to beat Congress so we can force the Medical Industry to stop poisoning our babies.

    If you won’t do that, you’re telling everyone who reads this that you support shooting more mercury into babies to mangle their little brains. If you don’t understand, please ask questions.

  8. White Rose on October 2, 2013 at 9:27 am said:

    Just read a scathing piece by that tool Gorski-Orac talking about Ginger , and from my point of view its very complimentary about Ginger Taylor to be honest . According to Orac , who of course has for some reason (probably a secret paycheck) involved himself so heavily in the defence of the most defective products in history (ie vaccines) ,Ginger is the real deal – a woman who means business . Orac if you read this we are all committed volunteers , better than any mercenary , everytime .

    However , Ginger , I hope you read this , because my questions all still stand , how is it possible that we are so ineffective against these crimes against humanity ? And why do these strange things that divert our campaigns keep on occurring ? I am sorry , no-one like to hear it , but are we infiltrated ? (eg Beth Clay & all at Autism Speaks .)

    To all those people who say there isnt smthg really wrong going on ….. in terms of de-population plans .

    just do this little experiment for me . Count how many women you know who are childless greater than 35 years of age …. in my life I have just done a rough count and its 35 so far .
    So ignore the media nonsense when they talk about abortions in China & India and all those terrible stories …..look at yourselves in the West . There is a conspiracy a foot , and it isnt a theory , its real and happening right now ….. the culprits are the super rich – you know their names.

    I am still trying figure out why Safeminds undermined CoMed at the Mercury Treaty. I thought we all wanted the mercury out of the shots. Nobody gives a reason for this, so I guess Safeminds likes mercury in the shots.

    A message to those forces that want to monitor us (the parents of the poisoned) . The more determined amongst us know your plan , and let me advise you of ours , its prosecutions we are demanding , you can forget the compensation . And it will be a wide sweep , we aim to send the guilty parties to prison for the rest of their days and totally disgrace the lot of you . So if I were you I’d start making your exit plans now , work out who your fall guys are (for instance I’d imagine in the UK it has to be Saluisbury .) But make no mistake we are going to be satisfied with just the one name , all those doctors who knowingly cooperated and oiled this machine are in the firing line too (Bedford , Elimann ,Baird and the rest) .

    Orac & LBRB & SBM all object to our use of the word holocaust and tsunami and epidemic with regards to vaccine damage . Well see this you total scoundrels .

    CDC Admits 98 Million Americans Received Polio Vaccine In An 8-Year Span When It Was Contaminated With Cancer Virus

    The CDC has quickly removed a page from their website, which is now cached here, admitting that more than 98 million Americans received one or more doses of polio vaccine within an 8-year span from 1955-1963 when a proportion of the vaccine was contaminated with a cancer causing polyomavirus called SV40. It has been estimated that 10-30 million Americans could have received an SV40 contaminated dose of the vaccine.

    So this makes Germany 39-45 look like a teddy bears picnic . Holocaust is the correct term , Now lets prosecute the guilty .

    Just putting my five cents in here. Dr. Andrew Wakefields findings regarding the MMR vaccine and autism link have been confirmed in 28 different studies around the world. Google it, you’ll find actual links to most of these studies. So there is a link. Is it possible that autism is caused by something else altogether as well? Absolutely. Meanwhile, there still is a link. Period.

    Resorting to name calling in comments sadly takes away from what could otherwise be an intelligent discussion. The topic here is relevant and it appears that Ginger cares more about you, Jake, then you would care to admit.
