"ADHD is a prime example of a fictitious disease," said Leon Eisenberg, the "scientific father of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)," in his last interview before his death. Yet, every year, parents are allowing dangerous drugs to be prescribed to their children to deal with a fabricated disease, rather than exercising discipline over their children. As a result, America's children become dependent upon these drugs and in many cases, commit heinous crimes.
Just look at some of the side effects of some of the anti-depressant drugs that are prescribed to America's children and adults:
- Manic reactions
- Suicidal ideation
- Loss of consciousness
- Feeling drunk
- Alcohol abuse
- Homicidal ideation
The Sons of Liberty radio host Bradlee Dean gave a few examples on Tuesday of teens who have been prescribed some of these dangerous drugs and while taking them, engaged in criminal actions. In some cases, they even took the lives of those around them.
- Eric Harris, age 18, from Columbine High School, shot 12 fellow students and a teacher. He had been taking Luvox and several other anti-depressants.
- TJ Solomon, 15, wounded six at Heritage High School in Conyers, Georgia. He was on Ritalin.
- Chris Pittman, 12, shot and killed his grandparents at close range, and then set their house on fire. He was on Zoloft.
- Jason Hoffman, 18, wounded two teachers and three students at Granite Hills High School. He was on Effexor and Celexa.
- Cory Baadsgaard, 16, took 23 classmates and the teacher hostage at Washington State High School. He was also on Effexor.
- Elizabeth Bush, 14, shot at fellow students in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, wounding one. She was on Prozac.
"Talk to these kids friends," Dean pleaded. "Look into their eyes and tell me they are there."
"How come no one is talking about this?" queried Dean.
"They're taking your kids. They are taking your veterans and they are telling them 'If you don't take these drugs,'… then they want to disarm them because they want to label them as being 'mentally ill,'" said Dean, as he demonstrated how they are getting one generation hooked on the drugs and taking our veterans and trying to do the same to them to disarm them.
Dean then challenged those who are going after our veterans. "What? It's good enough for you for our military to fight for you and your unconstitutional wars, but when they come back you don't want to support them to actually get healthy?" Dean asked rhetorically. "No! That would be calling our bluff saith the criminals in government.
Bradlee Dean recounted the story of Brad Voorhees, who went to the college in Stillwater, Minnesota and shot his wife 21 times. Dean went to visit Voorhees in prison, where Voorhees told him, "Bradlee, I didn't know what I was doing." He just had his Prozac prescription doubled by his doctor.
Then there was Virginia Tech shooter Seung-Hui Cho, who went on a shooting spree in the spring of 2007. Cho killed shot and killed 32 people and wounded 17 in two separate attacks that were approximately 2 hours apart. He was also prescribed Prozac.
Of course, these are the ones that get the national attention, but the list of those affected by these drugs goes on and on and on.
Dean went on to say that there are theories surrounding these dangerous prescription drugs.
"The medical industry is using the guise of helping children to de-personalize and disconnect… your children… from a healthy, normal upbringing," he warned. "Parents are placing their children on these drugs and subjecting to what the world has to offer, when, in fact, all these children are looking for is their parents, in hopes that they would be the blessing that God intended them to be."
I must also point out that God previously warned in Revelation 18:23, "And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived." The term "sorceries" in the text is the Greek word "φαρμακεια" (pharmakeia). That's right, it looks like "pharmacy," and the word is translated in the New Testament as "sorcery" or "witchcraft." It is defined as, "the use or the administering of drugs; poisoning; sorcery, magical arts, often found in connection with idolatry and fostered by it; and as a metaphor for the deceptions and seductions of idolatry." How does Rob Bell like that for relevance?
Indeed, God has said that children are a blessing (Ps. 127:3). Yet, for many in our country today, children are considered a curse. Just look at how the world and the professed Church snarl and scowl at big families. Count the millions of children that have been murdered in the womb, torn apart and discarded in toilets and trash cans because they are not seen as blessings. However, Americans are big on their curses, aren't they? Debt, divorce, sodomy, addictions, idolatry and many other things fill many American's lives.
Frankly, most all of this goes back to the fact that Americans are not following the commands of God, who said that children were to be taught by Mom and Dad. When they aren't doing that, they are sending their kids off to the indoctrination centers of a godless institution that seeks to rid them of the knowledge of God and of His Law. It is here, in many cases, that not only are kids are referred to doctors for the fictitious ADHD diagnosis, but also the drugs that go along with it. And it is here that many of the crimes referenced above, occur.
Parents, the question to you is, why will you continue down this path? Do you not love your children enough to take the responsibility of caring for them and teaching them yourself rather than handing them over to the agent of the state, who will be more concerned with their job and their paycheck than the life, morality and eternity of your child?
