Radio Host Michael Savage Denies the Existence of Autism

This is a really shocking statement, and I doubt that Michael Savage will be able to avoid walking back from it. I mean, Savage has said some of the stupidest and most offensive things imaginable on his right-wing radio show, but this one takes the cake. On Wednesday, Savage said the following about the rising rates of autism in the US:
" 99 percent of the cases, it’s a brat who hasn’t been told to cut the act out. That’s what autism is. What do you mean they scream and they’re silent? They don’t have a father around to tell them, ‘Don’t act like a moron. You’ll get nowhere in life. Stop acting like a putz. Straighten up. Act like a man. Don’t sit there crying and screaming, idiot'...Stop with the sensitivity training. You’re turning your son into a girl, and you’re turning your nation into a nation of losers and beaten men."

Wow. I am literally speechless (certainly wordless). 99% of autism cases are just "brats." No matter what your politics are, you have to admit this guy has lost his fucking mind.
