SAVAGE: Now, you want me to tell you my opinion on autism, since
I'm not talking about autism? A fraud, a racket. For a long while,
we were hearing that every minority child had asthma. Why did they
sudden -- why was there an asthma epidemic amongst minority
children? Because I'll tell you why: The children got extra
welfare if they were disabled, and they got extra help in school.
It was a money racket. Everyone went in and was told [fake cough],
"When the nurse looks at you, you go [fake cough], 'I don't know,
the dust got me.' " See, everyone had asthma from the minority
community. That was number one.
Now, the illness du jour is autism. You know what autism is ? I'll
tell you what autism is. In 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."
Autism -- everybody has an illness. If I behaved like a fool, my
father called me a fool. And he said to me, "Don't behave like a
fool." The worst thing he said -- "Don't behave like a fool. Don't
be anybody's dummy. Don't sound like an idiot. Don't act like a
girl. Don't cry." That's what I was raised with. That's what you
should raise your children with. 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. That's why we
have the politicians we have.
