Alison Tepper Singer Grows Up

Be careful what you wish for
'Cause you just might get it
You just might get it...

— The Pussycat Dolls, When I Grow Up


Last week, Alison Tepper Singer resigned from Autism Speaks, leaving a high-profile position as the organization's executive vice president of communications and awareness, because of what she describes as a difference of opinion regarding vaccines. She claims that she left voluntarily, standing on principle and defending the cause of science, because she was opposed to wasting money on vaccine-related research after many studies had shown no link between vaccines and autism.

Perhaps she did indeed choose to leave, or perhaps—in light of her history of strong support for genetic research—the Wrights decided to give her the boot so that they could attract more donations from those in the anti-vaccine camp. To put it more bluntly, the Wrights appear to be trying to bamboozle the anti-vaccine folks by making a few vague promises of research into vaccine safety, while their eugenic steamroller continues merrily on its way. I expect we'll never know the whole truth, but it seems likely that her departure may not be as voluntary as she asserts.

Here's the lesson that I hope she takes away from all this:

When you work in the pity industry, for an organization that is so totally devoid of ethics that it sees nothing wrong with using fantasies of child murder for marketing purposes, then you shouldn't be surprised when—after getting more public attention than you ever really wanted to have—you end up getting thrown under the bus just like your kid.

  • The curbies use a technique for deception called double speak. They're able to do this because our english language has degraded. Read "Politics and the English Language" By George Orwell. He was the same person who wrote "1984".

    http://www.mtholyoke.edu/acad/intrel/orwell46.htm. This is one trick they could do. Here is an example.

    People who wouldn't read the text of the political speaches or speaches made by curebies like Alison Tepper may not spot it. She could say this. This is if she tries to wiggle her way out of the comment she said. My child will not be killed because my child is loved. This is called passive voice. This might have a bit of insincereity to this. If she was 100% sincere she would say I will never kill my child because I love my child.

    Here is another thing a curbie like Alison Tepper Singer could say. She could say this in a firm tone of voice " I will not, and never, ever think about killing my non-child." or non-child could be replaced with a negative word and the word not is still there. She could not emphatize the non part. This is simplistic as their political language is more complicated than this.

    Most people would not spot the non or the negative word with the not unless it was put in electronic or written format.

    In fact, some of my college professors used this language in their test questions when I went to school. I had a terrible time when they used that language and I still have a hard time when it's spoken to me.

    Another thing Curbies could do is use ambiguity. Here is an example by one of my favorite author's Orwell from that link


    Quote: Ireturned and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.



    Here it is in modern English:


    Quote:Objective considerations of contemporary phenomena compel the conclusion that success or failure in competitive activities exhibits no tendency to be commensurate with innate capacity, but that a considerable element of the unpredictable must invariably be taken into account.



    Which one is understood better the first one or the second one? I pick the first one.

    The second one is what curbies do. They use ambigious language to make a horrific thing sound like a pleasant thing.

    Best uses some techniques from Joseph Gobbels, the propaganda minister of Nazi Germany and he uses some techniques from Sun Tzu's "The Art of War." I bet Mitchell does the same exact same too.
    http://www.psywarrior.com/Goebbels.html
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Art_of_War.

    One of the techniques Best uses from Gobbels is this:

    14. Propaganda must label events and people with distinctive phrases or slogans.
    a. They must evoke desired responses which the audience previously possesses

    In addition, This is from propaganda technique 4c from Joesph Gobbel's propaganda techniques.

    Here is one example: Best loves to use the Phrase Brain-Damaged alot. What he is trying to do with his audience is convince them that anyone who disagrees with Best is brain damaged.

    Another thing he tries to do is to make someone angry enough to give him your personel information. Sorry Best, that will not work on me.

    This is propaganda technique 4c also.

    EPA Admits Mercury Causes Brain Damage

    This is propaganda 4b. Mercury does cause brain damage but he leaves out the type of mercury. When the EPA said mercury they meant quick silver and and not the ethyl mercury that is put in vaccines.

    Here is a good one right here for Best. This is propaganda 10

    On his site in his post, Autism in Finland, Treatment Strategies, David Andrews he leaves out certain things Mitchell said. This a combination of propaganda 9 and 10 from Joesph Gobbell's Propaganda techniques.

    Alyric puts this into perspective on her blog at http://alyric.blogspot.com/2009/01/great-words-of-jonathan-mitchell.html#comments.

    Oh yeah, when Best uses the word the word euthanasia, this is another word for Murder of innocent people.

    Alison Singer and her cronies are much better than Best is at using these techniques.

    Best uses propaganda 18 alot towards Timelord, ABFH,Kevin Leitch, Kathleen Siedel, Dave Siedel, David Andrews, the president of the U.S. and others.

    Everyone who reads this please be aware of these techniques the curebies use.

  • Thank you for that, Cube.

    It clarifies perectly for anyone not familiar with how the man in question works.

    "On his site in his post, Autism in Finland, Treatment Strategies, David Andrews he leaves out certain things Mitchell said. This a combination of propaganda 9 and 10 from Joesph Gobbell's Propaganda techniques."

    And that guy calls me 'disingenuous'! What does that tactic make him, apart from a barefaced liar?

    I'm not sure that he's read those principles ( I think he's too stupid to understand the value of them, personally), but they certainly do crop up in his 'writing' a lot, don't they?

    "18. Propaganda must facilitate the displacement of aggression by specifying the targets for hatred."

    He uses that one all the fucking time.. ad nauseum, really.

    I would trust Mitchell to understand them: the likelihood of him actually having a degree is high, since he does in fact write like someone who has completed an undergraduate degree (albeit - as he puts it - a 'mediocre' one). And he does seem to implement similar principles in his writings.
