Ari Ne’eman Helps Fellow Autistic Muppet Off The Short Bus at Sesame Street

ari

Ari Ne’eman, real-life Muppet with autism

Julia may be the first Muppet with autism to appear on Sesame Street, but the first Muppet with autism has been around long before the back of the short bus caught any PBS producer’s attention.

The first autistic Muppet was born 10 years ago, when a pimply teen with Asperger’s started a campaign against the NYU Child Study Center. It was not a campaign against the center’s interim director whoring herself out to the federal vaccine program to help it exonerate itself against the families of yet more children it permanently brain-damaged. Rather, the entire campaign was simply against NYU’s advertising related to autism because the ads had offended him. And thus the mainstream media’s own autistic Muppet was born in the baby face of the autistic feelings campaigner named Ari Ne’eman, who could be trotted out at any time to praise the virtues of autism and advocate censoring discussion of the disorder on the pretense of offensiveness. His most recent media appearance was to help fellow autistic Muppet Julia off the Magic Short Bus and into the impressionable minds of young Sesame Street viewers.

Like the Sesame Street Muppets, Ari Ne’eman’s simplistic role and nebbishy look never changed. The dull-but-soft-spoken, chubby-but-clean-cut face of the autism acceptance ideology known as neurodiversity remains as it had in the past with the same talking points and nothing new to offer. In this world of make-believe, autism is normal and there is nothing wrong. It would all be so great, if it weren’t all such a lie.

Julia, like Ari, represents a caricature of the fastest growing childhood neurological disorder in the country. Both send the message that autism is merely a case of social awkwardness as opposed to the debilitating lifelong disability that has robbed so many innocent children of their ability to speak by vaccination. Both send the message that people with autism can just “be themselves” and society and other people will just accept them, no matter how socially off-putting people with autism can be. And both ultimately give people with autism a cop-out excuse – use the mantle of autism to make people feel sorry for you and absolve yourself of any personal responsibility.

Julia and Ari do a disservice to everyone with autism – the really severe whose experiences are simply neglected, and the higher-functioning who are discouraged from taking personal responsibility for their behavior. But unlike Ari, the explanation for Julia can at least be partially explained by ratings.

No young child wants to watch a Muppet who can’t speak and has diarrhea 10 times a day, nor does any such child want to see some awkward Muppet getting bullied into fitting in by bigger, meaner Muppets. Balancing entertainment with reality in this instance is virtually impossible.

Mainstream media has no such excuse for trotting out its own autistic Muppet by the name of Ari Ne’eman for the last decade in order to paint a rosy, unrealistic portrayal of autism. Unlike the ratings-generated Julia, Ari is a Muppet used purely for purposes of spreading propaganda. There is virtually nothing about him that viewers would find genuinely appealing to watch.

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:

Julia, Muppet with autism

And drops off an autistic Muppet.

The much-anticipated Muppet with autism named “Julia” will make her debut on the famed children’s show next week. Neurodiversity activists hailed Julia’s creation as a major step towards “acceptance” in popular culture. Not everyone was pleased, however.

Many parents of children with autism lambasted the program for what they saw as a normalization of the fastest-growing childhood neurological disorder in the United States. They argue that they would consider their children recovered from their condition if they ever reached the functional abilities of Sesame Street’s new ginger sped.

The bizarre media portrayal of autism as some kind of positive virtue is also happening on the other side of the pond where the BBC is doing a documentary film arguing that autism is an “ASSET” in the workplace. It’s not going well.

Meanwhile, there is emerging knowledge that higher-functioning autism comes with even bigger hurdles than previously realized. People with autism suffer a disproportionately higher rate of gender dysphoria, girls with autism have a disproportionately higher rate of homosexuality and men with autism have a disproportionately higher rate of trouble finding girlfriends.

Taking all the aforementioned issues of the spectrum into account, shows like the BBC documentary and Sesame Street appear more likely to give their viewers a confused look at the disorder rather than an informed one. Meanwhile, higher functioning people with autism are given the contradictory messages of fitting in and embracing their off-putting social woes. But the worst consequence is leaving the most severely disabled out of the picture entirely while the cause of their horrible disabilities remain covered up by the deep state, the mainstream press and the doctors who are now being cranked out of medical school dumber than they were when they entered.

Update: Video replaced.

Trump Imitates Autistic Self-Advocate Ari Ne’eman on Denying Autism is a Disability

The first autistic appointee to the National Council on Disability Ari Ne’eman has written that autism is not a disability:

We see the world in a different way than our neurotypical peers (neurotypical is a word in the autistic community meaning those of the majority neurology). This does not imply a defect, but merely a difference — one that we have just the same right to as those of a different race, nationality or religion.The belief was that anyone society labeled “disabled” could only go so far. Sadly, these misconceptions had the potential to become self-fulfilling prophecies. When the expectation is that people of a certain type can only reach so far, they are not provided with the same challenges and opportunities that educators give mainstreamed students….

We should recognize what diversity of neurology has contributed to the human race and what it can bring to the future. Difference is not disability and someday, I hope, the world will recognize that those who think in different ways should be welcomed.

AUTISTIC RIGHTS TOGETHER CASTRATES AUTISTS

fiona-o-leary

Fiona O’Leary, leader of Autistic Rights Together, which supports autistics going “trans” to mutilate their genitals and take dangerous levels of hormones

The neurodiverse front group Autistic Rights Together led by Irish nut Fiona O’Leary is trying to discredit the documentary Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe by making tenuous associations with a water purifier given as a treatment to autistic kids with gastrointestinal illnesses. Yet these same people who claim to stand up for autistics by protecting them from “dangerous” medical practices support them mutilating their own genitals to undergo “sex-reassignment surgery”.

Last year, Emma Dalmayne – one of O’Leary’s close confidants – actually wrote a blog post for which she interviewed three “trans autistics” and introduced by writing:

You’re a transgender individual and coming out as such can prove just how little support is in place with the government failing consistently to provide services and GP’s failing to take you seriously.

Those “services” would be the genital mutilation and hormone injections that come with undergoing “sex-reassignment”. Then last month Dalmayne reiterated her position in a tweet to Fiona O’Leary:

Yet these same women who claim to be crusaders for autists by opposing what they call “dangerous” alternative treatments for autism support the mutilation of autists who clearly have more wrong with them than just their autism. Not surprisingly, O’Leary and Dalmayne did not take well to having their hypocrisy pointed out to them and were easily triggered:

No thank you, Emma.

Jason Chaffetz Triggers Liberal Snowflakes on Vaccine Dangers

chaffetz

Congressman Chaffetz reacts to snowflake audience getting triggered after he tried explaining to them the concerns raised about vaccine injuries. Other triggers for this audience include but are not limited to: being told the president will be held to the standard of the law and being reminded about where their electricity comes from.

You gotta hand it to Jason Chaffetz. Being a congressman is hard work, but not many things demonstrate that like the town hall full of whiny cry-babies he had to deal with on Thursday night. Among the things the audience gave him crap for: investigating the government cover-up of vaccine dangers.

But it was the entire hour-and-a-half town hall that was difficult to watch, not just the audience’s ignorance on vaccination harms. Chaffetz was shouted down throughout the entire event simply for stating his opinion on a number of issues when asked by the audience. They even shouted him down right after he told an emotional story about losing both parents to cancer. That’s how insufferable these people were.

One so-called teacher asked how she is supposed to “teach” her students about “safe spaces” when the nation isn’t a safe space. Lady, you shouldn’t “teach” students about safe spaces precisely because this nation is not a safe space. Your job is not to give students an earload of make-believe, your job is to teach them.

I was already itching to stop playing the YouTube when at the end, some overweight, neurodiverse autist who clearly couldn’t control his own hand-movements asked a question about the president’s “BS” opinion regarding vaccines. As soon as Chaffetz discussed how concerns were brought to his office, the audience got triggered once again: “Noooooooooooooo!!!! Science! Science! Science!!!!”

Although there is virtually nothing else that the audience full of dirty hippies, feminist harpies and neurodiverse nitwits said in response that is audible, one of those snowflakes alleged the following was asked:

Why yes, as a matter of fact – his name is William Thompson, and he still works as a senior scientist for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. What better way to shut these infantilized protesters down than to subpoena him and have him tell the truth under oath? Okay – maybe not shut down, just expose as being even thicker than they come across.

After all, they may never stop crying over this…

So pleased she is not the President. I thanked her for her service and wished her luck. The investigation continues.

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.

miloautism

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.

Trump Versus Self-Victimizing Age of Autism Blog

maxresdefault

See video of SJW in action for reference

Social Justice Warrior. A pejorative term for an individual who repeatedly and vehemently engages in arguments on social justice on the Internet, often in a shallow or not well-thought-out way, for the purpose of raising their own personal reputation.Urban Dictionary

There are two paths the autism community could take: end the vaccine-induced autism epidemic at its source as Donald Trump has said he would do as president or live in a perpetual state of victimhood and align with others who do the same. There is a segment of the autism community that already does this, known as the “neurodiversity” movement which claims the problems facing the autism community are solved by fighting the non-existent “ableism” that society heaps on people with autism. Self-styled victims come in many other forms of identity-defined politics: man-hating feminists, cop-killing Black Lives Matter terrorists, illegal immigrants who think they are entitled to amnesty and Muslims who complain about “Islamophobia” and deny that Islam has anything to do with Islamic terrorist attacks. Collectively, these groups are known as “Social Justice Warriors” – abbreviated SJWs. Not only does the Age of Autism blog support Crooked Hillary, it has now gone full SJW.

In a post titled “A Better Way to Make America Great,” contributing editor and autism parent Dan Burns rejects Trump in favor of his own solution of self-victimization for the autism community:

“This year, Ben and I stood in solidarity with Hispanic, Muslim, and gay families: the lonely, frightened, and excluded; the imprisoned and the oppressed. As the autism wars intensify, vaccine injured and mandate resistant families, kicked to the curb by some mainstream media and threatened with apprehension, detainment, and forced vaccination, are feeling excluded, reviled, and oppressed. Families are banding together, starting group homes like The Autism Trust in Austin, Texas. May they find, in solidarity with other victims of ignorance, fear, and hate, that from the wounds of brokenness, healing springs.”

There is nothing wrong with banding together and starting group homes, and certainly nothing wrong with The Autism Trust which has done plenty of great work. However, “healing springs” do not emerge from “wounds of brokenness” by finding “solidarity with other victims”; they emerge by working to make life better for yourself and others. Milo Yiannopoulos – Breitbart Tech editor and British gay conservative Trump supporter – said it best:

“Everybody has bad shit happen to them, and you either use it to turn yourself into a star or you become a victim. And I don’t have time for victims. If you allow the bad things in your life to define you, you will only ever be a parasite.”

The autism community doesn’t have time for victims either. Instead, it should become a star for change by getting out the vote for Donald Trump to Make America Great Again!

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!
