used to describe children with Autism on his radio program. He went on to
say autism, a lifelong debilitating disorder that leaves many children

broadcasting syndicators must be held accountable for his hateful and
ignorant tirade. Contact his sponsors and demand that they withdraw their
support. Most reasonable people, and most for-profit corporations, do not
want to be identified as oppressors of the disabled. Your words will have
great impact and will make the choice clear for them. To Hear Savage's

Dear Michael Savage Sponsor or
We have learned that your company
sponsors or supports Michael Savage's radio program. On a recent program, he
attacked children with autism, claiming that autism was a fraud and a scam.
He went on to say: "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." Savage also used offensive terms to describe autistic children,
such as "idiots", "morons" and more.
We parents and family members of an
individual with autism will not tolerate Savage's offensive and unacceptable
conduct. We respectfully request that your company withdraws their
advertising dollars from his programs and, if you broadcast or syndicate his
radio show, that you dismiss him immediately. Autism affects 1 in 150
children in the USA.
Each of those children has a circle
of family, friends and supporters who share the concerns of the child. We
would say that there are likely 10 people for every child with autism who
shares that child's concerns.
When you consider this request,
please consider that as many as 1 in 15 Americans will be watching your
decision and how you react will have a powerful impact on their opinion of
your company. We hope and trust that you will do the right thing.
