Editor’s Note: Sign the petition to block neurodiversity apologist Steve Silberman from speaking at the Autism Society of America conference.
Today’s political and academic climate is tainted by a new wave of “Social Justice Warriors” (SJWs) – far-left activists who shirk facts for emotion and who bully people they disagree with. Their weapon of choice? Political correctness.
There are third-wave feminists who exaggerate sexual assault statistics, who fabricate claims that men have higher wages than women and who advocate the killing of all white men. There is the Black Lives Matter movement which has proven itself to be a form of social justice cancer similar to feminism – advocating racially segregated dormitories and the murder of police officers (two of whom were actually murdered in New York City by a BLM supporter). But there is yet another incarnation of so-called “social justice” that has proven itself quite destructive despite catering to a smaller community: Neurodiversity.
Led primarily by Crooked Hillary-stooge Ari Ne’eman and his Autistic Self-Advocacy Network (ASAN), neurodiversity’s stooges (abbreviated “ND’s”) – among other things – engage in the following behavior:
-Shame parents of severely afflicted children for trying to help their children, even for trying to stop them from wandering off and drowning.
-Shame non-like-minded people with autism for voicing a desire to not have autism
-Claim autism is not bad and should not be treated or cured
-Suggest calculating the costs of caring for people with autism amounts to eugenics
-Deny an autism epidemic
Recently, people in Ari Ne’eman’s group protested a screening of the documentary film Vaxxed despite never having seen it and had the nerve to argue that people hosting the venue did not have a right to film them protesting. They further dismissed the film’s director on the basis that he has no medical license, yet members of ASAN can join and consider themselves “autistic” even if they have no real diagnosis – merely if they “self-identify” as such.
While ASAN and neurodiversity claim in principle that having autism is as inevitable as being black, in practice being “autistic” to them is essentially a choice. Not only does ASAN hardly represent the autism community, some of them do not represent it at all. Moreover, many neurodiversity “autistic” self-advocates appear to be disproportionately women – especially strange considering that there are far more men and boys diagnosed with autism than there are women and girls. These folks – Ari Ne’eman included – also identify as feminists. It is hardly surprising then that neurodiversity is intimately linked with other contemporary social justice cancers that are using political correctness to advance their destructive goals. At UMass Amherst, one student later nicknamed “Trigglypuff” for her viral YouTube outburst (see video below) repeatedly attempted to shout down invited speakers who were critical of feminism. As it turns out, Trigglypuff is also an ND who is opposed to an autism cure.
Even feminists who do not identify directly with the neurodiversity movement have trouble with free discourse of ideas specifically as they relate to autism and vaccines. One notorious feminist named Melody Hensley barred critical questioning of millionaire vaccine industrialist and virulent liar Paul Offit. Several years later, she hypocritically pined for sympathy by claiming she got PTSD from Twitter.
It is shameful to think that politicians are catering to these groups. Fortunately, one presidential candidate – presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump – does not give in to such nonsense. Autism Investigated wants an honest president who speaks his mind, who slams Crooked Hillary Clinton and her shameless abuse of the woman card, who rebukes Black Lives Matter by emphasizing that all lives matter and who acknowledges that autism is an epidemic caused by vaccination instead of taking autism policy advice from the likes of Ari Ne’eman. If elected, Donald Trump will be that president who will acknowledge these harmful social justice movements – whether they be feminists, Black Lives Matter or neurodiversity – for what they are:
