Don’t worry, Christianoids, even if Prop 8 fails, there will still be a group of people you can discriminate against. Cheer up, Libertarians, there will remain an entire class of people whom you can still post hate speech against. Once homosexuals have the same rights as white people, you guys can always discriminate against autistic people. Christianoids can claim that autism is the devil’s mark, or some other god damned nonsense. Libertarians can post nasty discriminatory rants against autistic people and can claim it their constitutional right. Well, at least until Autistic people start suing. Then libertarians can add frivolous lawsuits to their long litany of complaints. Face it, autism is the new gay.
I noticed this when I was at a supermarket checkout stand and saw an article autism. In this article the father admitted to wanting to murder his autistic son. Holy psycho-killers, Batman! That was right out of an article from the same magazine from back in the Seventies. Only then the father wanted to kill his gay son. Jesus H. Christ on a Crutch? What would these bastards do if their kids were like mine, both gay and autistic? What a blood bath that would be.
But not to worry, there is no need for violence or bloodshed. The autistic child can be cured the same way that they used to cure gay kids in the Seventies. Aversive therapy. Yes, it’s against the law in many states. Yes it is cruel and unusual, and if you did it to an adult you could be sued. Still, if you do it to your kid, he will come out cured, and you will be spared the social stigma of having a child who is different. Isn’t that worth the money you spend and all the agony you cause the child?
Back in the Sixties and Seventies, a parent’s biggest fear was that little Johnny or Suzie would grow up to be gay. Can you imagine the social stigma? What would the neighbors think? They would avoid you at church. Father might not get that promotion. So it was Dr. Ivor Lovaas to the rescue! Is Johnny lisping? Is little Suzie wearing her hair too short? Then take your kid to Dr. Lovaas. He knew just how to cure homosexuality. Electric shocks! Pain! “Clinics” opened up all over the country that claimed to cure homosexuality. They took little Johnny and little Suzie and hooked them up to electric shock machines. Unacceptable behavior, such as looking at naked pictures of the same sex, is rewarded with electric shocks.
Of course the supermarket check out magazines were full of praise for the Lovaas method. The authors could not praise Lovaas and his clinical approach to a cure enough. This is not surprising since the authors of these magazine all work for public relations firms. Each and every article in the Ladies Home Journal and Good Housekeeping is an advertisement. Companies pay to have their promotional articles carried in those magazines. Pay them enough, and Good Housekeeping would have carried articles praising genocide. So in the Seventies, we were treated to articles about parents in desperate straits due to the sexuality of their offspring rescued by the brilliant Dr. Lovaas.
Today Gays and Lesbians are on the verge of equal rights and social acceptance. There are even Gays and Lesbians in the financial industry and in government. Unless you happen to be a Christianoid whack-job, homosexuality is no big deal. All these “clinics” with their expensive electric shock machines were threatened with bankruptcy. Then, somebody got the bright idea of curing autism. It was almost as good a racket as “curing” homosexuality. Autism is not really understood by the general public, so it is scary. Autistic kids act weird, so they are a danger to mommy and daddy’s careers. Nobody is going to promote somebody with a weird kid. So mommy and daddy can send their little Johnnies and Suzies to a Lovaas clinic to learn how to behave normally.
The problem is that autism is caused by irregular brain development. Autism may be preventable some day in the near future, but once the brain begins to develop, there is no going back. The kid is autistic. All the quack cures and chelation therapy in the world is not going to make the brain undevelop and redevelop normally . All the Lovaas clinics are going to do is teach the kid stupid pet tricks like ‘smile on command.’ So when you see see Jenny McCarthy on the cover of Us Magazine telling the world that her child has been cured of autism, remember that she is being paid to tell that lie. Here are a few links for you. Remember, only education can conquer prejudice.
Dr. Lovaas Curing a Gay Teen
They conspired with the Mossad to destroy the Twin Towers. They have conspired to poison our water with fluoride. They are conspiring to give American jobs to undocumented workers. They have conspired to destroy American freedoms through the income tax. They are like rats in the walls, working tirelessly to undermine the Constitution. Whoever they are, they are a busy bunch of bastards.
So who exactly are they? Nobody really knows who they are. Some say they are “Skull and Bones”; a Harvard student’s club. Others say that they are the International Jewish Conspiracy, and that Israel is secretly running the world. I have also heard that they are a secret cabal of Kaballah masters called the Illuminati. That last one just doesn’t make any sense. The Kaballah is a Jewish mystical discipline. So wouldn’t the Illuminati be part of the International Jewish Conspiracy? Who would I go to for an answer to that question?
Americans seem to love conspiracy theories. There are so many of them. Feminists are conspiring to destroy the American Family through abortion. Unions are conspiring to rob honest libertarians from amassing wealth. The number of conspiracies and conspirators is endless. All the ills of the world are because of some mysterious conspirators are manipulating world events for their own sinister ends.
The utter absurdity of conspiracy theories is enough to give me a migraine. Sorry, America, George W. Bush is not Lex Luthor, and Batman and Superman are not going to depose him. If Magneto was real, he would be in his 90s right now. Dr. Evil is a movie character. There are no evil magicians manipulating the world through Kaballistic Numerology. Two high level stock brokers making a deal on a golf course is not a conspiracy. Even if they did belong to Skull and Bones together, it is not a conspiracy.
Why bother doing anything about the state of the world when it’s all the Illuminati’s fault? Were I a member of the Bush misAdministration, I would be encouraging conspiracy theories as much as possible. I would be hiring on-line guerrilla marketers to post phony conspiracy evidence in chatrooms, social networks, and bulletin boards. I would be hiring ghost writers to produce books that “prove” the Mossad conspired with bin Laden, or that jet fuel doesn’t burn hot enough to melt steel girders. There is nothing that can effectively squash the investigation of real crimes as accusations and phony evidence of false crimes.
Conspiracy theories also serve an emotional need for stability. They assure the American public that there is indeed somebody in charge of their lives. Christianoids have Jesus running their lives, and Libertarians have Thomas Jefferson as their savior. Conspiracy Theorists have the International Jewish Conspiracy to blame their failures on. Conspiracy theories assure us that somebody is in charge even if that somebody is a James Bond villain.
The fact is, we are living in a Capitalist chaos with thousands of different factions maneuvering to take advantage of each other. The big fish are out to eat the little fish, and the rest of us are only here to buy gasoline from them. The United States Constitution gives us both the power and the responsibility to put a stop to this kind of capitalist chaos. We have the constitutional power to enforce limits and reasonable laws to end the abuse in government. We are the actual government, and we are not doing our jobs. It is much easier to put another $150 into the tank of the old SUV and blame the price on those damned Illuminati.
Ultimately conspiracy theories are an excuse to continue to avoid our responsibilities to ourselves, to our nation, and to the world. Nobody conspired to have us ignore the corporate abuses happening in the Middle East right now. Nobody conspired to have us ignore the warnings about Global Warning. Nobody forced us to listen to the Capitalist bullcrap spouted by the neocons. We all know the homeless are out there, we ourselves chose to ignore them. The state of the world is our fault, and only we can fix it.
