>Nothing but "Pharmawhore Idiots"

I’ll continue with my banter because parents need to hear that there is hope and not the despair and acceptance that your ilk preaches.”

Last night, I posted on the discussion occuring on facebook on a friend’s open thread. This thread is potentially read by a lot of folks; he’s got at least 4,428 friends (there’s no telling how many have blocked me, so he may have more–for some reason, militant AoAers who know of me like to block me on facebook). I noted that Linderman had started the name calling. I wrote (if you missed last night’s late posting):

Yes, of course, it was my two posts that are responsible for Linderman’s “storc dork” and “sheeple” and Nancy’s “warped emotional payoff from online posturing.” Of course it is. And you’re right, it is sad when there’s nothing but malice left, isn’t it? I see an awful lot of malice at AoA. An awful lot. Bitterness, rage, and desperation, as well. It must weigh on you. I’ve read Linderman’s posts at his blog. I’ve read a lot of Nancy’s stuff at Huff, at AoA. Read way more of other loyal AoAers than I ever wanted to. And what strikes me most is that desperation. And you really don’t like it when those peddling woo and industrial mining chelators are taken to task for their actions. If you were taken in, if you were fooled, and you did this, you gave your child something that even the company making it can’t decide if it’s one pure single compound or two natural compounds that appears in human fluids, well, what will you do?

Yeah, I’m gonna go with Linderman’s comment above being proof positve of malice, bitterness, rage, and depression.
 
Here we go around the deconstructing post (sung to the tune of the mulberry bush):
 

“I am completely unapologetic for my mean attitude.”

 
That’s okay, Linderman, I am completely unapologetic for this post and last night’s post. And Thelma and Louise have told me they aren’t going to feel a bit bad about the workover your writings are going to get.
 

“I am disgusted by people like you.”

I guess he’s talking to me. I’m not sure what all “people like me” signifies, but whatever. Remember, I’ve read some of his spewage. He is a hate-filled, father of four who thinks board certified docs are “nothing but pharmawhore idiots” and that vaccines are the cause of autism, and a whole host of other ideas that, again, fit right in with whale.to. After all, this piece here is his work:
 
 

I’m just pointing out the crazy. Plenty more for T and L. Plenty more.
 
Back to Linderman’s non-apology for being true to his drawing:
 

“My son is 70% recovered and doing great. despite doctors that told me to institutionalize him.”

How the hell does one measure that? 70%? Of what? You got a chart, buddy? 100% Normal (ewww, on his warped scale of normal?), 90%, 80%, blah…….Where’d the kid start off at, then? I know, he’s your science of one and all, but what yardstick are you measuring his recovery?

“So I could care less about “board certification” because they’re nothing but pharmawhore idiots.”

Linderman thinks board certified doctors are “nothing but pharmawhore idiots” so he’ll keep on using shcmucks who sell him chemicals promising recovery because chemicals are chemicals? Really? As Thelma would say, dumbasses are dumbasses, but you can divide the dumbasses into categories like harmless, risky, or dangerous.
 

“My science is the recovered kids I see all the time, the kids that FEEL better.”

 
Is he channeling Jenny McCarthy? And what is with this feel better stuff, this pushing the idea that all autistic kids are really really sick kids. Never mind, I remember. The woo charlatans are promoting various ideas like mercury poisoning, mitochondrial disorders, leaky gut syndrome, glutamate poisoning, glutathione deficiencies children high on the opioide peptides caused by that damn goldfish cracker and McDonald’s takeout. Your kids are sick. It’s an autoimmune disorder. It’s sticky blood. 
 
We know that the woo salesman wouldn’t be able to convince parents that their products could save their chidren without first convincing them their child had a disease that could be fixed with their magic pills.
 

  “as far as OSR goes,it’s no different from all of the other chemicals and pharmaceuticals that doctors use on a consistant basis.”

 
Right. First off, remind you of Roger? What’s with the lack of spacing? Okay, back to the actual content. No different at all, so it’s okay, but the woo salesman aren’t “pharmawhore idiots.” They’re saviors, damnit! If Thelma were writing this, I have no doubt there would be a litany of “Dumbass!” punctuating these paragraphs. I promise to leave Louise and her plenty to deconstruct. Have you seen his blog? Plenty there. It rivals whale.to for nuttiness.

“I’ll continue with my banter because parents need to hear that there is hope and not the despair and acceptance that your ilk preaches.”

He thinks his post demonstrated hope. Hahahahahahahaha. What would Thelma say?

UPDATE:

I posted:

“The AAP, the CDC and others of their ilk are most definitely not stupid. They know exactly what they are doing. This makes them far more dangerous than the bumbling idiots that many in the “anti-vaccine” community portray them as.”

Which is it? Are they “nothing but pharmawhore idiots” or your above contention that they know what they are doing? Plus, you like the word “ilk” a lot.

He sputtered back:
 

 
I can be stupid and diabolically evil? What? Maybe I’m not though. Oh, you can be both diabolically evil and stupid at the same time?
 
I am a freak? I didn’t post this on my wall:
 

Back to the comment I was dissecting. Now it’s people of my “ik” and I’m twisting “shit.” Interesting.

    >Ok that is chock full of crazy, but I'm left particularly bewildered by the last bit. How is "our ilk", by accepting our children, and helping them to become the best people they can be without stressing out about "curing" them, "preaching" *despair*? I'd say we're a fairly positive bunch. It's a strange and fickle thing, perception.Loved this post, Kim. I laughed out loud when I got to the bit about channeling Jenny McCarthy, and as I was drinking at the time, water nearly came out of my nose. Nice work.

    >Oh My !!!Patrick, who just turned 10 years old Dec. 27, was just dropped from Special Education services this month.He no longer qualifies for services…Is he 100% recovered.?Where can I get this recovery chart? Does AoA sell it?Can I buy it from a DAN! Doctor?

    >Corina can't post from the library, so I'm posting for her:"Is he channeling Jenny McCarthy? And what is with this feel better stuff, this pushing the idea that all autistic kids are really really sick kids. Never mind, I remember.

Your kids are sick. It's an autoimmune disorder. It's sticky blood."You know, if we look at "our kids", ie, the autistic people, as being the science behind this, then let's take a look at all of the "kids". Hmm… well, as I am autistic, then I must be my own science. Let's see… no mercury poisoning, or mitochondrial disorder, no leaky gut, or other poisoning and deficiencies. Heck, even my Iron Anemia is back to average levels. and oh, what's this? Still autistic.hmmm, and it's been about three months since my H1N1 shot too… and not more autistic either…. How's that for science?

    >Bitch. Whore. Blah blah blah. He's obviously nuts and hates women who know more than he does, to boot. Or maybe he just hates women in general. Poor thing.That 70% thing…is he using some sort of meter in which the–dare I say it–mercury rises or falls with each curative success or failure? Is that how the 70% is measured? I can't even figure out where zero is on this thing. Also, do you hang it on the door frame, like a height chart, or have it surgically implanted in the child?

    >Hey! I LOVE being part of an Ilk! Since I belong to PZ's horde, and Orac's Big Pharma flunkies (or whatever we are…), I'll happily join your ilk, too, Kim. ๐Ÿ™‚

    >Louise, there's plenty of material for you and Thelma!Katie, perspective is, isn't it? In his world, I'm a freak all about despair. Gotta remember as long as the crazy ones think you're crazy, you're probably doing all right. It's when they think you're one of them you have some problems. ๐Ÿ™‚ I aim to help clear the sinuses!Jeanette! Betcha the DAN! docs sell the charts cheap or maybe you can get one for free with the industrial strength OSR. :-)Emily, I thought I was getting new names for my list on the right for a minute! ๐Ÿ™‚ Yup, recoveremeter, with methylmercury. You dip your kid's finger in it to measure. Oops, and then give him an extra OSR.Dawn, welcome to the ilk! ๐Ÿ™‚ or "ik" as the man got so agitated he had some problems spelling.

    >Corina, well, you know a science of one is all anyone needs. More than that is overkill! ๐Ÿ™‚
