Michael Savage feeling the heat from big pharmaceutical companies and the usual liberal suspects

I know Michael Savage. I’ve been to a few of his events and was a regular caller on his show “The Savage Nation.” Savage is not a raving lunatic attacking autism victims. In fact he had a brother with severe mental and physical disabilities.

What the learned author and authority on herbal medicine is doing is exposing the AMA and BIG Pharmaceutical companies for taking control of the system and broadening the life-long sale of dangerous, under-tested drugs on innocent children.

Dr. Savage has always been against Big Brother/Big Sis manipulation and is one of the last true advocates of freedom in America.

Could Savage be on to something? Is Autism being over sold? Why are some calling it the American disease?

This story by Elizabeth Gorman on MinnPost.com shows an oddity. It should be researched further.

The article reports that an unusually large proportion of Somali-speaking children in Minnesota have autism, something that has also been noted in Sweden, where Somali immigrants call autism “the Swedish Disease,” because they did not see it back in East Africa.  Could it be that booth American and Swedish pharmaceutical companies are expanding the market for their drugs?

According to the report, almost 6 percent of the Minneapolis school district’s total enrollment is made up of Somali-speaking students. But in the city’s early childhood and kindergarten programs, “more than 12 percent of the students with autism reported speaking Somali at home,” and over “17 percent of students in the district’s early childhood special education autism program are Somali speaking,” the article said.

Somali kids with autism seem to be doing worse, on average, than their school mates: “About a quarter of all autism children who attend autism classrooms for students functioning too low to be mainstreamed in regular schoolrooms are Somali.”

The statewide autism rate in Minnesota is already quite high — at 100 per 10,000 children, as compared to the national average estimate of 67 per 10,000. In the Somali immigrant community, however, it could be much higher than either of those figures.

Mr. Obama, have you no shame? Why did you push to fire Don Imus within days of his street-talk jock joke, but let your family attend the hate monger Rev. Wright’s church for 20 years?

“I understand MSNBC has suspended Mr. Imus,” Barack Obama told ABC News, “but I would also say that there’s nobody on my staff who would still be working for me if they made a comment like that about anybody of any ethnic group. And I would hope that NBC ends up having that same attitude.”

Mr. Obama, what about your America-hating, white-blaming racist pastor? He wasn’t joking about blaming American whites for 9/11 and inventing the HIV/AIDs virus. Why did you continue to attend Rev. Wright’s church for 20 years? Imus is a political satirist who often had you on as a guest to help build your political popularity. Rev. Wright is a hate spewing monster. Why did you let your daughters attend such a place of worship on Sundays for their entire lives?

It took Obama more than a year to speak about his pastor’s racially charged anti-American tirades, but when it came to denouncing Don Imus for his racial street talk joke against the Rutgers girls basketball team, it took Obama only a week to demand the shock jock be fired, reported by FOX News.

So this is why your wife is proud of America for the first time? You grew up in South Side of Chicago world of blame whites for all your ills. Meanwhile, American blacks are killing each other off at the rate of 20,000 a year.
