NEURODIVERSITY = WEAPONIZED AUTISM

fQBhujJ10 years ago Ari Ne’eman of the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network stuck his fat face on Good Morning America to exalt the virtues of autism. Since then, autists have become an adorable public spectacle for America’s entertainment. America knew what repulsive freaks we were being, but wouldn’t admit it and patted us on the head as cheerleaders for the emerging identity politics of the left.

Barack Obama put Ari Ne’eman on the National Council on Disability, where he got nothing done except for being the autistic figurehead for neurodiversity. The movement that was formed in the early 1990s by “gender-fluid” autist Jim Sinclair has done nothing to improve the lives of people with autism. It has allowed autists to become unsuspecting tools of the pharmaceutical industry, mainstream media/entertainment and the institutional left. In effect, neurodiversity is weaponized autism.

Politicians, drug companies, the slush fund that is federal autism research – they all benefit from this sideshow of autists who play warriors for a non-existent civil rights movement. Meanwhile, children are literally losing their ability to speak thanks to vaccinations and the government continues to cover that up. Weaponized autism is as dangerous as ever.

At least, however, we can still celebrate one of the few cases of weaponized autism gone right, Exhibit A: 4Chan trolls capturing Shia Labeouf’s stupid anti-Trump “He Will Not Divide Us” flag.

Disturbing footage taken straight from Shia’s cuckshed.

Update: I hope Shia doesn’t kill himself. He makes such a great cartoon villain.

WILLIAM SHATNER PLUGS AI, RIPS “SELF-ADVOCATES”

William Shatner

William Shatner – the man, the legend himself – plugged Autism Investigated’s piece on Twitter that caught Forbes’ contributing Emily Willingham denying the existence of government research implicating mercury in vaccines as a cause of autism. He also slammed the Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN) and its opportunistic founder Ari Ne’eman for attacking other charities and then currying sympathy by playing victim.

It started with yet another hit piece by neurodiversity blogger Emily Willingham in Forbes Magazine, this time against President Trump for his acknowledgement of Autism Awareness Month and views of autism being caused by vaccines. William Shatner was not impressed:

What followed was a slew of vitriol directed at him by the online proponents of neurodiversity – the cancerous, social justice movement that preaches autism “acceptance” – egged on by Autistic Self-Advocacy Network (ASAN) founder Ari Ne’eeman. Unfortunately for Ne’eman and friends, Shatner didn’t take their attacks lying down. In particular, Shatner slammed Ne’eman’s group and movement for its tendency to play victim:

For the past decade, Ari Ne’eman and his group have received mostly positive media attention but little public scrutiny. No mainstream journalist or big name celebrity has taken on their movement directly. Without question, they were in for one hell of a surprise when William Shatner stepped up.

But even better: Shatner tweeted a link to Autism Investigated’s 2014 post which exposed Forbes journalist Emily Willingham’s omission of the existence of Centers for Disease Control data implicating mercury in vaccines as a cause of autism:

And for his tweets of truth, Shatner received a couple of warm and well-deserved thanks:

Facebook Censors Milo Yiannopoulos For Condemning Transgender Genital Mutilation of Autistic People

Breitbart Tech editor, political provocateur and LGBTQ Nation‘s 2016 “Person of the Year” Milo Yiannopoulos has confirmed to Autism Investigated that a post of his condemning the transgender lobby’s targeting of autistic kids for genital mutilation has been censored by Facebook. A frequent critic of social justice movements like third-wave feminism and Black Lives Matter, Yiannopoulos slammed this disturbing new trend of abuse after it was glorified in the pages of The Atlantic and further encouraged by the usual suspects of the autism community’s own social justice movement: neurodiversity.

Yiannopoulos’ censored Facebook post

Like the bizarre “fat acceptance” movement of third-wave feminism that seeks the normalize the obesity epidemic, the neurodiversity movement seeks to normalize autism – now the fastest growing neurological disability among children in the US. The primary instigators of this campaign are the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network (ASAN) and its appallingly dull founder Ari Ne’eman, who served as the first autistic member of the National Council on Disability under President Barack Obama.

Since leaving the council, Ne’eman has remained an autistic darling of the left: continuing to voice his fringe opinions on the platform of victimhood, grievance culture and political correctness that characterizes the feminist and Black Lives Matter movements criticized by Yiannopoulos. Such opinions of Ne’eman’s include accusing Donald Trump of suggesting autistic people should be dead when he said vaccines are linked to autism. Ne’eman has also opposed measures to stop autistic children from elopement and drowning by claiming that tracking devices used for such purposes are oppressive to autistic people with a tendency to elope. Given Ne’eman’s already twisted vision for the autism community, it would only be a matter of time before neurodiversity would join forces with the transgender lobby Yiannopoulos vocally opposes.

That trans-neurodiversity alliance formed last year on the heels of a terrible tragedy. Danielle Jacobs – a 24-year old woman with Asperger Syndrome in Arizona – committed suicide by cop after complaining that her doctor would not prescribe her testosterone for her desired gender “transformation.” Given her issues of aggression as further evidenced by her complaints of suffering “meltdowns” and a widely viewed video of her hitting herself, more testosterone was probably one of the last things she needed. Nonetheless, Ne’eman and associated LGBT groups pounced on her death with a joint statement, proclaiming:

Trans and gender nonconforming autistic people—and all transgender and gender nonconforming people—have have a right to:

make medical decisions and access affirming health care, including transition-related medical care and trans-competent services related to autism (boldface mine)

Ne’eman and friends assert that Jacobs and other “trans autistics” should just be allowed to go ahead with their plans of genital mutilation, castration and deformity, and that critics like Yiannopoulos are presumably just “ableist” and “transphobic.” Yet even though Ne’eman supports giving more testosterone to autistic people who if anything have extremely elevated levels of the hormone already, he has condemned lowering elevated testosterone levels found in autistic children. When he has, Ari Ne’eman was quick to point out that the drug used to lower their testosterone has also been used to chemically castrate sex offenders. Never mind that he has partnered with the trans lobby to actually castrate autistic people.

And now with the censorship of Yiannopoulos’ post that called out this horrific new form of abuse against autistic people, so has Facebook.

Crooked Hillary Swallows Sacked Autism Stats

Ck2fATmUgAQFbr5

Despite Crooked Hillary Clinton saying “I believe in science” at the Democrat Convention, yet more information emerges confirming she does not. These days whenever someone invokes “science” to make a point, very rarely do they have any real scientific backing to their claims. A highly publicized UK survey used to allege autism prevalence was as high in adults as it is in children in order to disprove the autism epidemic has now been trashed by the same government that conducted it in the first place.

Despite being widely criticized for invalid methodology from the time it was released in 2009, Crooked Hillary Clinton cited the study as being informative as well as to justify the implementation of a similar survey in the US:

When the United Kingdom conducted an adult prevalence survey, they learned valuable information regarding the needs of adults on the autism spectrum that has helped them craft and improve services. Clinton will instruct the CDC to conduct the United States’ first-ever population level survey of adults on the autism spectrum.

That statement could have been borrowed from 2012 congressional testimony of Autistic “Self-Advocacy” Network’s (ASAN) Ari Ne’eman – a group comprised of both high-functioning and self-identifying “autistics” –  who asserted:

The United Kingdom in fact conducted that study and found a comparable rate of autism in adults as in children. We should be doing that here, and regardless of the result we would gain valuable information on supports for autistic adults.

Ne’eman’s group was among the organizations that advised Crooked Hillary’s campaign on autism policy. His group subscribes to “neurodiversity” – an emerging movement seeking to normalize autism while generally diverting blame towards society for autism’s problems. Key among such beliefs is that autism’s huge rise as a result of vaccination is not real and that autism was simply ignored in the past, a position happily legitimized by Crooked Hillary and her crooked, vaccine injury-denying campaign.

Ari Ne’eman has now announced plans to formally step down as head of ASAN in December, perhaps in anticipation of a cozy spot within Crooked Hillary’s administration should she be elected president. We must do all we can to ensure she does not win by voting for Donald Trump, who acknowledges that vaccines cause autism, pledges to end the autism epidemic and will Make America Great Again!

Neurodiversity Is Social Justice Cancer

The+people+have+spoken_b24557_5782253

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

-Deny autism is caused by vaccines and attack Republican nominee Donald Trump for making the case that it is (The covered up science shows that vaccines cause autism.)

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:

Cancer.
