Aping Screwtape's Agents Who Animate Them, & History Says They Will Not Be Deferred By Facts or Pesky Parents Who Resist Their Death Jab
“Facts are stubborn things”, the words rumbled from “his rotundity’s” John Adam’s mouth. The “facts” Adams was promoting would ultimately acquit 3 of 5 British Regulars of murder and spared the other 2 being hanged. That was then and this is now, today, Adams would be impeached for his “facts” then made to carry out a sentence of being forced to listen to Neil Young and Joni Mitchell songs, on 78 speed to ramp up the amount of ear torture.
Today that newsprinted rag not fit for the entrails of decent cod, the Bezo’s owned Washington Compost, carried the edict that all the empire’s 6 month olds are to be summarily not once but thrice “jibbed” with a yet unnamed and unknown Pfizer “Omicron vaccine”.
"Hey, Neil Young hatuh, ‘its perfectly safe’, you feel me bruh?”
This despite the now undeniable Mount Doom sized pile of all this “evidence” that 6 month olds don’t get the Doom and only one on this planet has died from it.
But it matters not and the Pfizer Dumplin’ Gang is going to get away with this and much more because that’s how scientism worship works in ‘Muricah and has for the last 80 years. I now leave you in the capable hands of Tablet’s Ann Bauer for her 26 October, 2021 exposé on the matter “I Have Been Here Before”. On a personal note, Mittus Bauer and I probably don’t agree on much else, ditto that for her wonderful editor Alana Newhouse, who also has very little in common with me. Listeners to my show will recall that I spent my first day back from Christmas holiday 2020 reading Alana’s “Everything Is Broken” essay.
I wrote Alana and thanked her for her moving candor and brilliant analysis and she was very gracious in responding. My point?
We can still be united by a pursuit and defense of the truth. Please read all of Ann’s essay then Alana’s, they are worth your time and prepare for the Cult of Death Covid Cabal to defy the defeat they are reeling from as I peck.
I told you on today’s radio show they would never surrender.
[excerpted courtesy of Tablet Magazine, subscribe here] In April 1939—as the result of a backdoor bribe—a 35-year-old lumber baron named Bruno Bettelheim was released from the Buchenwald concentration camp on the condition that he leave Germany and never return.
In addition to running his family’s sawmills, Bettelheim had earned a degree in art history and, like many Austrians of the time, dabbled in psychoanalysis and read a bit of Freud. His wife had once cared for an emotionally disturbed child in their home. When he arrived as a refugee in the U.S. he used these random details to remake himself as an expert in human behavior. A small man with a striking Viennese accent and manner, he believed he had valuable psychological insights from the 11 months he’d spent inside Dachau and Buchenwald.
Back in ’38, when Bettelheim was imprisoned, these were primarily work camps where prisoners were divided, stripped of their possessions, then beaten and herded like animals by the guards. Bettelheim noted that the men most damaged by alienation and violence, the ones who gave up hope, had similar affect: They avoided eye contact, rocked and muttered, and gazed at distant objects. He felt he had witnessed what it takes to break a person’s mind.
Bettelheim’s first job in the United States was as research assistant at the University of Chicago, studying high school art curricula. He divorced his wife (who had also emigrated) and taught briefly. In 1943, he published a paper titled “Individual and Mass Behavior in Extreme Situations,” claiming to have studied more than 1,500 concentration camp prisoners. Legendary General and future President Dwight D. Eisenhower praised the work.
Overnight, Bettelheim became a “doctor” and a star.
On the strength of that paper, his [false] claim to have worked with Sigmund Freud, and his status as an intellectual and refugee from Hitler’s Germany, Bettelheim was made full professor of psychology and director of the Sonia Shankman Orthogenic School for emotionally disturbed children at the University of Chicago in 1944.
Once established at the school, he won a grant from the Ford Foundation to start a program specifically for autistic children. Parents from around the country sought his help for their children who were mute, withdrawn, unable to follow directions, prone to “stimming” (gazing at an object or blinking rapidly into light), self-harming, or failing to toilet train.
In the mid-’50s Bettelheim developed a new theory of autism, based on his 1943 paper and the passing remark of a researcher named Leo Kanner who said autistic children “never defrost”: the “refrigerator mother.”
Bad parenting—like imprisonment in a Nazi work camp—was an “extreme situation,” Bettelheim said. He characterized the mothers of children in his program as cold, distant, abusive and uncaring, like domestic SS guards. Though no studies were done to back up this hypothesis, his theory that rejecting mothers cause autism became the accepted science of the time.
In his 1967 book The Empty Fortress, Bettelheim wrote, “Infants, if totally deserted by humans before they have developed enough to shift for themselves, will die. And if their physical care is enough for survival but they are deserted emotionally, or are pushed beyond their capacity to cope, they will become autistic.”
Dr. Bettelheim enjoyed decades as a media darling, appearing on television—he was a regular on The Dick Cavett Show—and serving as top expert for newspapers such as The New York Times and The Washington Post, which credited him with “originating many of the techniques and principles of modern child psychiatry.” Woody Allen gave the pop psychiatrist a cameo, as himself, in the film Zelig. Commonweal magazine published an article titled “The Holy Work of Bruno Bettelheim.” He wrote a series of world-famous bestselling books.
The refrigerator-mother theory of autism became gospel, not just among psychiatrists but in the zeitgeist. It made sense and was easy to grasp. Better, it turned a mysterious and heartbreaking condition into a simple problem of who was to blame. People rallied behind the idea that cold mothers caused autism because it gave them comfort. Mothers whose children developed normally knew it was because they were “good.” Fathers and other relatives of autistic children were off the hook.
Even desperate “bad” mothers embraced the idea, believing that if they could fix themselves their children would be cured. Finally, an answer: They needed to sign up for intense psychotherapy and send their autistic children to live with other families or in residential programs. Some mothers were advised to re-home their healthy children as well, lest their “refrigerator” qualities leak over and spoil another young mind. Many complied.
Occasionally families would reject the diagnosis and their children would be taken by force. Reports were made, psychiatric teams mobilized. They showed up at the homes of autistic children, packed their bags and removed them, while guards held off the screaming, protesting mothers who’d been deemed unsuitable. Bettelheim called this process “parentectomy,” a sad but necessary practice that would help autistic kids be cured. Many were taken to the Orthogenic School he ran, where they stayed for up to a dozen years.
It wasn’t until 1990—after Bettelheim’s death by suicide at 86—that residents and staff from the school began talking about his rages, name calling, constant lying, and abuse.
“I would characterize the atmosphere at the Orthogenic School, at that time, as the beginnings of a cult, with Dr. B. as the cult leader,” wrote a former counselor, W.B., in a letter to the Chicago Reader in July 1990.
But by that point, almost 50 years of damage had been done, during which any clinician who came up with a different diagnosis or questioned Bettelheim’s practices suffered immediate and devastating professional consequences. “In the Orthogenic School,” psychiatrist Richard Kaufman told the Chicago Tribune. “Bettelheim’s mind supplanted your own.” - Ann Bauer, I’ve Been Through This Before, Courtesy of Tablet Magazine.
