This guy, said on his show that kids with Autism are brats that have never been told no. I seen this tonight on  CNN. He is taking a lot of heat for this, but what he really needs is a father with a child with Autism to give him a free trip to the ER to have his face put back together. What is up with all these people attacking kids with Autism? These kids can not help it. They have not done no one wrong. Its growing more and more common everyday. I say 1 in 3 people have contact with a child with it. I am a father to one, and would love to meet Mr Savage face to face. I take stuff like this to heart. My son Hunter is not broken, he is who he is. If people has a problem with his Autism, bring it to me. He goes to school, and understands alot of things. What people need to do is shut their mouth when they don't know what they are talking about. I would not wish this on no one, but I hope Mr Savage meets a father someday that feels like I do. Its not a broken arm, a small cut, its everyday and its hard to live with. Comments from people like him only make it harder on the ones who deal with it. I can't understand why this guy still has his job, but they have had protests at his station. Its a sick world when someone gets kicked while down anyway. No child asks to have Autism, no father wants to have to live everyday with it either, but some do. Mr Savage is a punk, and I pray for him! I know that he will run into the wrong dad, and take a bad beating for his words. I pray it don't happen, but he should have watched his mouth and told his self NO when the subject came up. This is a big story right now on all the news stations, and I hope to see him without a job soon. Not for my son's sake, but for every child that he disgraced. My son is fine, and as long as I have a heart beat, he will be taken care of, its just for the others that need the care my son gets. Mr Savage, I Pray for you!


I love each day like its my last! Why do we are have to be so serious?

I have been blessed and not had to deal with what you have had to deal with Craig. I admire the way you defend this with such passion. Your son is very lucky to have you as a father.

Thank you Sir, my son means the world to me. He might have Autism, but he is my Hunter. Thats how God made him and I am happy with him just being my son. This guy was wrong, and I am starting this topic to defend the others that is on the same boat with me. This guy needs to be fired, and people need to understand 10 years ago it was 1 in 1000, now its 1 in 150 kids that has it. Its getting bad and its nothing to talk about unless you have the facts. I was about to go to sleep when it came on the news, and now I am fired up and will be up tonight just thinking about what a asshole that man is.

Craig. I am sorry you have to deal with the little fu**er. He probably wants attention like Don Imus. There is nothing wrong with autism, and someone should tell him that.

His comment that 99% of the kids just needs their ass busted and told NO, that was all that was wrong with them.

I've go to agree with you Craig.  I don't understand how these Idiots get on the air and run their heads about things they know nothing about.  I have friends that are parents of children with Autism.  These children are a blessing to their families and me.  I absolutely love spending time with them.  They teach me more about life every time I have the pleasure of their company.  I've leaned more from these children then I have in fifty years of listening to these Professionals who probably don't know the difference between Autism and Downs Syndrome.  You're right, these children are not broken, but I'm not so sure about Mr Savage!

Some say yes, others say no. There are a disorder that is passed down, but I don't think Autism is one of them. You can be tested, but I turned the test down because if Hunter's Autism was my fault how would I feel. The same for my wife. We are not having no more. I have 3 wonderful boys as you can see in my profile photos!

I've worked with kids who have Autism and I DARE Mr. Savage to tell them NO.  Autism is not a behavorial disorder, it is a neurological disorder which cannot be helped and one at which the child and their families adapt to.  I call all the kids I have worked with my special little angels and I challenge Mr. Savage to spend a day with them and then see what he has to say about it.  Guys like him take extreme advantage of the 1st ammendment rights not to mention extreme liberties on talking about issues which they probably don't much about to begin with anyways.


 


Craig,  Love to you and your little angel.  Your a GREAT dad for standing up for your son.

What is it like


What is it like to have a child?

Who has needs severe or mild

Preconceived dreams, hopes and plans

Have slipped through my fingers like grains of sand


What is it like, rare as it may be

To sometimes see someone looking just like me

Brief glimpses of a smiling face

But from a far, far, far away place


What is it like as days pass to years?

There are plenty moments that dry your tears

An appropriate comment from out of nowhere

Tells me that there’s a real person in there


What is it like to look thru my eyes?

Concerns about the future, not times gone by

What’s to be when I’m no longer here?

Who will protect him from the fears?

Of people who do not lend a hand

Or from things he just can’t understand

From places that he should not go

From things that he really should know

From dogs or cats or things that are wrong

From an institution where he doesn’t belong

Why do I doubt and have a care

When I know that God’s hand has always been there

He has selected me for this mission in life

To watch and guard this child living the strife


What is it like to have a child?

Who has needs severe or mild

How blessed I am and how really great

To see God’s “special work” and celebrate.


- Thomas G. Andry


 


Craig A very special Poem for you!   Ignore the ignorance of those who do not know the facts, nor those have not been blessed with God's very special Angels.

Stalker, you are a very kind hearted person. Your son is very fortunate to have you as a dad. This Savage freak needs to learn what true love & compassion is because unfortunately he is deprived of it! I have never tolerated anyone bad mouthing a child! Even as a kid I stood up to the punks who dis-respected another for being different. Alot of times I was standing up for myself because I was different. I've taught my children to NEVER dis-respect anyone because of differences. Savage apparently is one who was never taught any better as a child. That's one reason why the world is so cruel....because they were never taught any better . to love a child is the most wonderful, heart melting thing in this world. When I was expecting my first child my Dr. ask me if I wanted some kind of test done that would determine if my child had Downs Syndrome....my answer....no that won't be necessary because I am going to love my baby no matter what, no need in a test like that(as a matter of fact, it hurt my feelings, although it was just common procedure to ask since I was at a certain age. I am so glad that everyone in this world isn't like Savage, I couldn't deal with it. From one parent to another....keep your head up & alway's remember....your son is special to you & it's alway's going to be up to you to protect him from gutter-scum like this fool who made that remark. To all of us that have true hearts....our children will alway's be special to us. God protect our little ones.

Okay so if you believe its genetics, it wouldnt be the child's fault, completely refuting Mr. Savage's remarks

I've heard of his show.  He is based out of CA and considered a shock jock.  What he said about autisim was ignorant, but usually the other stuff he talks about is dead on.  He's a conservative, and pro military/police.  Again, I don't agree with his statements about autism.

Well, you know even if he is pro-cop, and he needed my help I would do my duty to protect him because its what I do. I just hate when people attack the weak, and they have no voice. I might be a cop, but I have a voice for any one who is weak and needs me to stand up for them.

I don't have direct contact with an autistic child but I can't see how anyone,let alone someone in the media that people listen to,could say such things about a child that is having enough difficulties already.

Scientists aren’t certain what causes autism, but it’s likely that both genetics and environment play a role.    Researchers have identified a number of genes associated with the disorder.  Studies of people with autism have found irregularities in several regions of the brain.  Other studies suggest that people with autism have abnormal levels of serotonin or other neurotransmitters in the brain.  These abnormalities suggest that autism could result from the disruption of normal brain development early in fetal development caused by defects in genes that control brain growth and that regulate how neurons communicate with each other.  While these findings are intriguing, they are preliminary and require further study.  The theory that parental practices are responsible for autism has now been disproved.

 


***************NOTE THE LAST SENTENCE........THE THEORY THAT PARENTAL PRACTICES ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR AUTISM HAS NOW BEEN DISPROVED!!!!!!!**************************************************************************************************


MR SAVAGE NEEDS TO DO SOME RESEARCH BEFORE HE CHOOSES TO SPEAK ON A TOPIC THAT IS HE IS OBVIOUSLY IGNORANT ABOUT!!!!!!!!!
