When the Monitor prints inaccurate information such as this:
"Seidel believes that the propagation of the theory causes many harms: It traumatizes parents, who believe their children have been poisoned and must be fixed; it harms children, who are subjected to medically unnecessary treatments designed to remove mercury from their bodies; it discourages vaccination, leaving children vulnerable to deadly diseases; and it distracts autism activists and researchers from the work she feels is most important"
they are dooming some autistic children to life in an institution.
Margot Sanger-Katz, the uneducated dingbat who wrote this article, obviously has not heard the truth about autism. We are curing autistic kids by removing the mercury that doctors injected into them. Seidel knows this, lies about it, and the Monitor prints her lies.
Parents are not traumatized to learn that mercury from vaccines caused their kids' autism. They are happy to learn this since we now know what caused the problem. If we know what caused the problem, there is a chance we can fix it. Seidel is trying to make people believe the lies that doctors have told us for decades, that there is no known cause or cure for autism. That lie became obsolete in 1999 when we learned that mercury was the cause of the autism epidemic. Unfortunately, those with the most money to lose do not want us to know that fact. So, scumbags like Seidel spend all of their time trying to perpetuate that lie.
Seidel and her associates at Neuroinsanity go overboard by coming up with the absurd notion that it is somehow wrong to tell people with brain damage that that brain damage should be repaired. They have conned lots of brain damaged people into publicly proclaiming that they enjoy having the brain damage known as Asperger's and they are encouraged to lie about it by calling themselves autistic. Every time some idiot with Asperger's publicly states that they are an autistic person who does not want to be cured, they are presenting false information to the public. This lie is extremely damaging to actual autistic people who can not speak, read, write or type and very much do need their brain damage fixed.
This is an intentional effort of pure propaganda and it is growing. Media like the Concord Monitor need to understand this. Neurodiversity is an associate of Quackbusters. Quackbusters is an organization whose sole goal is to discredit any method of medicine that does not result in profit for mainstream medicine and the pharmaceutical industry. The pharmaceutical industry stands to lose trillions of dollars when the truth comes out that they negligently poisoned us all starting in 1931. Doctors stand to take a huge hit to their reputations while they are protected from lawsuits by a legal loophole called "standard of care". This means that as long as doctors uniformly lie to everyone and claim that there is no known cause or cure for autism, they can not be held liable since that lie is standard medical practice. They can not be held liable for poisoning our children with mercury since the standard medical practice is to keep poisoning babies with mercury.
Let's look at more ignorance from Margot Sanger-Katz:
"Science hasn't settled the question of what causes autism, but it has largely ruled out the possibility that a mercury-based preservative called Thimerosal, used in childhood vaccines until 2001, is to blame."
Sanger Katz should know that mercury is still being pumped into babies and fetuses via the flu shot. It was also still in most vaccines until 2003. Vaccines still contain the full dose of mercury in Asia, Africa, South America and other poor countries.
Science has settled the question of mercury causing autism. It does. The sources that Sanger Katz uses are lying to protect their own interests. They screwed up and they will not admit it.
Dr Mark Geier is the man who confirmed what Verstraeten told us in 1999, that thimerosal did cause the autism epidemic. Sanger-Katz should have asked Dr Geier about that instead of asking him to defend himself from the deranged attack of character assassination that is continually presented by Seidel. Instead, Sanger-Katz quotes some horse's ass named Gottesman who wrote a paper in 1995 about autism being genetic, four years before we learned that autism was caused by the mercury in thimerosal. This moron calls Seidel an Erin Brockovich when sane people know that she more closely resembles Joseph Goebbels for her expertise in spreading propaganda that harms autistic children.
Is Sanger-Katz aware of Seidel's work with Amanda Baggs who Seidel uses to further her propaganda? Baggs is a complete fraud who claims to be autistic. She is not. Seidel gives her rides and helps her fix her medical records so she can con the general public into believing that there are actually autistic people who do not want to be cured. There is no autistic person on this planet who would not love to be cured. To suggest otherwise is simply insane. It is also evil.
Amanda Baggs is an actress who plays the role of spokesmodel for Neurodiversity. She acts like a low functioning autistic woman, a role she honed by copying a real autistic woman who had learned to type at age 30. She has conned CNN into putting her story on TV and she has made a bunch of Youtube videos where she proclaims she does not want a cure. She does this in concert with another phoney autistic lesbian who is nothing more than a fat, lazy slob who has stated that it is OK to lie to beat the system.
Baggs claims that she can't speak. although she can sing. She could speak fine when she started college at age 14. Then she mangled her brain by using LSD 4 or 5 times a day, tried suicide, was diagnosed schizophrenic, became an elf and went doctor shopping to get diagnosed with autism at age 19, at about the time that the movement to obfuscate the truth about autism was being started, 1999. I don't know how Baggs and Seidel met each other but Seidel's husband did attend the same college that Baggs drropped out of after one year.
Here's another blatant lie by Seidel that demonizes decent people:
""They're talking about experimenting on disabled kids," she said. "Disabled kids are among the most vulnerable people on the planet.""
The truth of the matter is that this "experimenting" (Lupron) was solid science that resulted in helping lots of autistic children. Dr Boyd Haley, who Seidel also criticized unfairly, taught us that the reason four times as many boys as girls become autistic is because testosterone makes the mercury more potent while estrogen lessens the effects. Without this "experimenting", those children would not have been helped to recover from their autism. Removing the testosterone from these children made it easier to chelate all of the mercury out and give these kids a chance to recover from mercury poisoning which is misnamed autism. Seidel's calling disabled children vulnerable is quite a stretch when what she is really saying is that she does not want these children to be cured.
Seidel does not mention that Dr Haley made a great discovery with what he learned about how quickly testosterone added to mercury can kill brain cells. Instead, she used her typical character assassination technique to criticize Dr Haley for using the term "Mad Child Disease". As a father of a severely autistic boy, the term "Mad Child Disease" could not be more accurate. How else would you describe a child who reaches into his diaper and smears feces all over his face, runs into traffic and bashes his head through every wall in the house?
That's the truth about autism that Kathleen Seidel does not want the world to know.
She would rather have an uneducated person like Sanger-Katz tout her inane garbage about celebrating the joy of autism and making the public believe that there is actually something good about autism. There isn't! There may be a few intelligent people who have diagnosed themselves with Asperger's and also tout Seidel's version of insanity about not curing autism. They do not represent the horror that autistic kids endure. To allow herself to be conned by Seidel and pawn this deranged version of autism off on the general public is a disgrace. There are children who are suffering severely, with physical pain every day of their lives from having their brains poisoned with mercury. These children will never come close to leading a normal life. The few who have decent and intelligent parents who have done the research themslves have a chance to escape from the throes of this horrific nightmare. The rest, the vast majority of autistic kids, will not recover thanks to garbage like what was written on the Concord Monitor by an inept idiot who did not do her research.
Margot Sanger-Katz needs to learn that every word out of Kathleen Seidel's mouth is a carefully planned lie as part of her propaganda effort to prevent autistic children from being cured. Kathleen Seidel belongs in prison, not on the front page of any newspaper.
