A group of angry parents, activists and autistic children on Sunday called for the firing of talk show host Michael Savage.
Savage recently said on his nationally-syndicated radio show that autistic children are "brats" who haven't "been told to cut the act out." Savage also said most autistic children need to be told to "stop acting like a putz. Straighten up. Act like a man."
The radio host has not apologized for his statement, and instead said on his Web site that the "national panic" of autism was created by greedy doctors and drug companies.
Autism is a mental disorder that inhibits a person's ability to communicate. The government estimates about 1 in 150 children have some form of autism.
Maybe I'd be better off calling him a dick since his real last name is weiner?
