What THEY Aren’t Saying
I am subscribed to a website for parents of Autistic children called Age of Autism. The site is both a resource for parents who are at their wit’s end dealing with Autism and where many of them are able to talk about things THEY will not allow in public discourse. Specifically like what is the cause of Autism.
Presently, the only thing Mainstream science and medicine will say definitively is that AUTISM IS NOT CAUSED BY VACCINES! They will offer all sorts of possibilities and suppositions . . . all of which lead to the end result of “we ain’t saying shit!” And you wonder how 30 years of intensive research can only come up with a negative result. We all know.
But anyways, the article below is an example of the kind of thing we talk about. These would have been shared on Facebook and Twitter and other social meida sites. But most of us were either suspended or banned for saying such things.
And more importantly from my perspective is that it points out the point I want to make with this post . . . That if you want to know what is going on, you need to look very carefully at WHAT THEY ARE NOT SAYING.
It’s Not So Bad
Decorum prevents me from writing what we are all thinking. Until April, then all bets are off. Gloves too.
By Anne Dachel
Autism one in 36 (one in 22 boys) It’s all good
By now anyone who’s interested has seen the latest upswing in the autism rate. As usual, the underlying message is, it’s nothing to worry about.
No one ever talks about more kids actually having autism. That’s long been THE REALLY BIG LIE ABOUT AUTISM, something I’ve expressly written about over the years.
Here once again are references to greater awareness, along with diagnosing delays due to COVID, more girls being detected, more minority children now being diagnosed, and “demographic differences”—although none of this could explain the latest leap from one in 44 to one in 36.
USA Today: quoted Dr. Andy Shih, chief science officer of Autism Speaks, who conveniently took credit for the new numbers.
Shih: ‘This increase is really fueled by us doing a much better job in identifying minority children with autism.’
I will give USA Today’s Karen Weintraub credit for also citing Dr. Walter Zahorodny in her story.
“No one really knows what’s driving autism rates higher,” said Zahorodny, also director of the New Jersey Autism Study and an associate professor at Rutgers University.
For years, people have pinned rising rates on a variety of causes, including improved awareness, reduced stigma, re-labeling of kids, aging parents, low-birth-weight babies or C-section deliveries. Though they all may contribute, Zahorodny thinks something else from our contemporary environment is driving the rates.
“This is a true increase,” he said. “It constitutes a major public health crisis.”
Weintraub even quoted Zahorodny in the headline of her story: ‘Public health crisis’: Autism rates rise again, with 1 in 36 children diagnosed, but in the final analysis, she lets Dr. Shih dismiss it all.
Improved services definitely help drive rates up, Shih said, which is a good thing.
“We’re definitely seeing there’s a greater capacity among caregivers and families not only to recognize and to understand what autism is but also to navigate the system,” he said. “I think that’s a huge improvement and progress in our community.”
Weintraub, like everyone else in the media, will never ask hard questions:
Questions for Dr. Shih: Will you keep getting better and better at diagnosing until the rate is one in 22 (like the current rate in California)? How long before you finally get it right?
Why can’t you find the same rate of autism among middle aged and elderly Americans?
Questions for Dr. Zahorodny: If this is ‘a true increase,’ what are you doing about it? What in the ‘contemporary environment’ is destroying the developmental health of so many children?
How long are experts going to scratch their collective heads and merely calculate the damage?
Other faithful minions in the media were quick to dismiss any real increase.
UPI: Public health experts noted that the shifts may reflect improved screening, awareness and access to services among historically underserved groups.
AAP: We can’t say for sure, but we suspect this is due to increased awareness leading to more children being identified with autism,” Karen Remley, M.D., M.B.A., M.P.H., FAAP, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities, said in a press conference.
CBS Philadelphia: “A lot of the increase is likely due to changes in practice, improvements in early detection, availability of services,” CDC’s child development and disability branch chief Matt Maenner said.
CNN: But according to the CDC, this long-term trend has “largely been interpreted as improvements in more equitable identification of (autism spectrum disorder), particularly for children in groups that have less access or face greater barriers in obtaining services.”…
In recent years, good progress had been made in early detection of autism – an earlier CDC report found that children born in 2014 were 50% more likely to receive an autism diagnosis or special education by age 4 than those born in 2010.
NBC News: Experts attributed the change to improved screening and autism services for all kids, and to increased awareness and advocacy for Black and Hispanic families.
This is a story that will quickly die
The news came out on Thursday, March 23rd, and I’m sure it will no longer be mentioned by Monday. The new rate will lost in the gala celebrations coming up with AUTISM ACCEPTION MONTH in April. (Note that it’s no longer “autism awareness” as it’s traditionally been titled.)
Sadly, accepting autism, whatever the rate increase, is the only thing left for us to do.
Anne Dachel is Media Editor for Age of Autism.
What are they not saying? This is the media reporting from and about the medical establishment. Saying . . . we have no idea. Shut. Nothing to see here. The increase in Autism rate is a good thing because they have been better at diagnosing it.
Funny thing that these same numbers aren’t being seen around the world. And they will explain it by saying . . . we have better doctors here.
Is in 1984? Catch 22?
So ask the questions!
WHAT is the relationship between vaccine ingredients and autism? Is it the Mercury?
I just “googled” the question “How many vaccines do kids receive?” and my computer crashed. Coincidence???
The number is like 50. When I was growing up the number was about 10. Nothing to see here. Keep moving.
More That They Aren’t Saying
My beginning example is from veterans who have been fighting the information wars for years. But it is small pototoes compared to National News items that are taking hours of Primetime News. Specifically the Nashville Christian School Shooting.
When shootings like this happen, I like to sit back and watch how they are going to spin it. The Mainstream has had a hell of a time with this one.
Shooter – White woman . . . kind of. They call themself a woman, but were born with male genitalia. And women don;t usually do these things. What? Wait!
It was a “Targetted” event. But they will not release the target. What was the relationship to the school.
There as a MANIFESTO (who really does that besides the Unibomber and Karl Marx?). But that is in the hands of the authorities becasue they say they do not want to give attention to this one who was so obviously seeking it.
An Assault rifle and and Assault pistol. Legally obtained.
So far they have pulled every anti-gun looney out of the woodwork. I have not seen David Hogg yet, but I am sure we will be punished by his presence soon.
They keep trying to put the pieces together on this one to make their next push towards gun control. But this one does not add up no matter how hard they try. How do you spin. Unhinged Trans female goes on shooting spree against Children at a christian school.
So ask the question. Is it the Gun? Is it the gender disphoric individual who is mad at the world? Hmmmmm.
What do we do with our unhinged population . . . with such a large proportion of Autistic children getting born? (Note I was punched 6 times this evening by my own autistic son during a tirade. He was mad that his brother unplugged the wifi).
IT’S THE GUNS! At least that is what THEY want people to believe..
