Colin Meloy Doesn’t Like it When You Criticize Neurodiversity


The Decemberists’ frontman Colin Meloy – who has a son diagnosed with high-functioning autism – really does not like criticism of neurodiversity. He hates it so much, he blocked Autism Investigated’s autistic editor on Twitter and then bragged about it:

Meloy gained notoriety for apparently pushing Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein to play ignorant about the evidence vaccines are linked to autism, before the Green Party officially weighed in with their party line that there is no causal link between the two.

He is also an admirer of Forbes’ writer Emily Willingham, who has been caught pretending that government results implicating mercury in vaccines as causing autism do not exist. Willingham is a board member of the “National Association of Science Writers”, which is supported by Johnson & Johnson. She has also blocked the editor on Twitter.

But even more disturbing is Meloy’s adoption of neurodiversity – an insidious ideology that seeks to push a particular agenda by making already-controversial topics like vaccines even more off-limits for discussion through political correctness and professional victimhood. Neurodiversity SJWs (“social justice warriors”) are trying to mischaracterize legitimate discussion about autism’s etiology or treatment as hate speech against autistic people for not accepting them as they are.

But the fact of the matter is that autism is a real disorder that severely impacts many people, and there is plenty of evidence they are caused by vaccines in the very studies the US government fraudulently uses to say they’re safe. If Colin Meloy refuses to acknowledge any of it but is nonetheless happy with how his son is doing, then he should just be grateful for that and stay out of issues he clearly does not understand and does not want to.

    Well Jake, you can put to Colin the following hypothetical: if it could be shown that a vaccine would cause precisely his son’s current condition, would he accept that his son receive it?

    Possibly he blocked you for the very reason he stated. “Neurodiversity is cancer” is a deeply offensive phrase.

    I always neurodiversity was sponsored by the vaccine manufacturers. Made up front group.

    • I think it would exist in some form even in spite of the current controversy, but its ideology happens to sink up with pharma’s agenda so the two are natural allies. Neurodiversity would still be destructive because its just like those modern victim-playing movements like BLM and contemporary feminism.
