Many of us have family members or friends with autism. Some of us may even be on the autistic spectrum ourselves. This article is not meant in any way to be insensitive toward those dealing with ASD, Asperger’s Syndrome, or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
The truth is though that the number of those with autism has been growing over the last couple of decades, with many of those now also reaching adulthood. We not only have record numbers of children with autism in our schools, but also a very large number of autistic adults now in the general population.
The ‘new normal’ of lockdowns, masks, repeated hand washing, and social distancing seems tailor-made to deal with this situation of so many autistic individuals now in society. Read below to see how these measures dovetail almost perfectly to deal with this new large and growing sector of our population:
Predictable Environment – Many of those with autism prefer a Routine Predictable Environment. We now have a very pre-set environment with Marked Places to Stand in line for entry to many stores and public places that is laid out very clearly and predictably.
No Touching – Many with autism also prefer not to be touched. Now you can go out in public knowing that there are No Hugs, No Handshakes, No Closeness, and No Touching.
6-feet Social Distancing - You can now even count on having a certain predictable and measurable distance that will keep others well apart from you – and you from them. This also helps with social Interaction issues such as Avoidance of Eye Contact often another symptom of autism.
Mask Wearing – With Social Anxiety often being an issue for those with autism, a face mask gives you a place to ‘hide’ away from others as well as to hide the Abnormal Facial Expressions, Odd Body Posturing and to muffle the Strange Tone of Voice associated with autism.
Eye Goggles – Many people have taken to wearing eye coverings as a precaution against the ‘virus’ entering the sensitive membranes of the eye. The issues of Poor Eye Contact sometimes associated with autism can be alleviated through this measure as well.
Lockdowns – Social Withdrawal and lack of interest in Social Contact are also listed as possible symptoms of autism. Stay-at-home orders and sheltering-in-place certainly help to ease the pressure of social interaction and random change of social environment.
School Closings – Teachers now no longer have to deal with a growing number of autistic children who developmentally lack sufficient language and communication skills. and who may act out with screaming or crying, to express their needs. thereby disturbing the classroom and other students.
Park Closures – Another hallmark of those with autism is not playing interactively with other children. In fact, lack of back-and-forth play is an early symptom of ASD. This can now just be avoided with no recess and closure of parks and other recreational areas.
Repeated Hand Washing – Repetitive Rituals and Behaviors are common in both Autism and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. This may also reflect a fear of being touched, or having been touched, by someone and the need to ‘wash it away’. Many with autism also gravitate toward a predictable and routine behavior such as frequent hand washing.
The fears that have long plagued those with ASD and OCD have now been made to be ‘feared’ by all of us. The media, false medical science, and our ‘leaders’ have sought to make us afraid of our own God-given immune systems and its ability to fight viruses and bacteria on our behalf.
We have also been made to fear each other as ‘disease carriers’. They have effectively turned us all OCD. However, this multi-faceted agenda that covers so many issues and touches so many parts of our lives can only have been orchestrated by evil entities and evil persons working over a long period of time.
Yes, 'they' have been plotting our demise!

So, is it a cover?
The COVID measures certainly make a good cover for the Autism crisis whether it is meant to or not. Rather than having a random society full of triggers, those with ASD won't have to deal with them nearly so much.
They also won’t stand out as much in society and be as noticeable now that everyone is being made to behave in pretty much the same way that those with ASD often behave.
Our wicked ‘leaders’ and their lack of empathy
Perhaps the 'government' has wickedly decided that this is a much more cost effective way for them to deal with the upcoming Adult Autism Tsunami than to just help them and provide the programs and services that they need:
“With a growing number of children being diagnosed with autism, the United States is on the verge of an ‘autism tsunami’ that could potentially leave tens of thousands with the condition lacking the treatment they need, especially as they become adults.” https://www.psychiatryadvisor.com/home/topics/autism-spectrum-disorders/u-s-may-be-on-the-verge-of-an-autism-tsunami/

"The earth is given into the hand of the wicked: he covereth the faces of the judges thereof; if not, where, and who is he? Now my days are swifter than a post: they flee away, they see no good..."
