They are the Nazis. Sitting back and watching generations of children be harmed and killed from poison in vaccines. Doing nothing, and actually trying to make it worse. They might as well pick 1 out of every 100 kids and gas them. That is more humane. The idiot who made this clip would have made better use of his time jerking off --b/c that is the equivalent of the message they are sending out. --AoA commenter
April 2, World Autism Awareness Day, will soon be here, and bloggers in the autism community are writing posts relating to the day, to the month ahead on raising awareness, of the work that remains to be done in society at large to create an environment of acceptance, appreciation, and accommodation for those with autism.
Over at Age of Autism, they're bent out of shape (when are they not?) over a parody of a scene from a movie involving Hitler having a huge hissy fit; it's been parodied many times for many different subjects. This time, though, the anti-vax movement-- Handley et al.-- are being parodied. Ah well. It is funny, as all the parodies tend to be. It is a huge rant that Hitler is in the middle of, with all sorts of people standing around watching him with worried looks on their faces. I've already said no one should call these parents Nazis, and I honestly didn't read it as such, just as I didn't look at any of the other parodies of other groups as equating them to Nazis. But the Nazi gambit isn't new to AoA; it's one they regularly dust off.
It's interesting that AoA is so sensitive about this, so sensitive in fact that they feel the need to immediately post a picture on an emaciated young man on their blog (thanks to a friend for pointing out the inherent irony there). I guess the folks over at AoA think serving up a baby at Thanksgiving is hilarious and acceptable, as is writing that Nancy Snyderman was under the table (since she wasn't pictured) giving Offit fellatio.
Was the video in poor taste? I'll let you be the judge of it, but considering the rhetoric over at AoA from its editors and commenters, the question of whether they engage in foaming-at-the-mouth rages over things seems moot. All one has to do is read the comment at the top to realize that these folks aren't operating in objective reality. All in one day, they managed to let on comments that called Ari and individuals on the spectrum who advocate for themselves sociopaths, and nastiness like the above.
Now, if AoA were an unmoderated blog where anything and everything got on and stayed on, I'd have less of a quibble, but this is a censored blog where the editors examine the comments and intentionally choose some and reject others. Hmmmmm. I find that the most interesting thing of all.
Oh, and anyone who thinks it would have been more humane to kill children than have autistic children needs some serious help.
