The internet is replete with hatred. Every form of hatred. Homophobia, misogyny, antisemitism, Islamophobia, racism of every form. But even I am taken aback by this one.

There is a YouTube account called Kill the autistic. He has produce a video entitled Autistic people are scum. Even for hateful people, this is astonishingly vile. No one chooses autism. 

And yet this person has put time into creating this video. What is his major malfunction? Who knows, but his world must be a cold, barren painful place to live in.

Free speech does not apply to hate speech or incitement to murder. This character needs to be silenced. I urge people to report the video to YouTube. I won’t link to it, because I don’t want to push his search rankings up, but if you put the name of the video into YouTube’s search box, it will appear.

As the Buddha said:

For hatred can never put an end to hatred. Love alone can. This is an unalterable law. People forget their lives will end soon. For those who remember, quarrels come to an end.
