Dale Milfay has tried everything to help her son Andre, everything except discussing his feelings with him while she was busy listening to President Bush give his State of the Union Address. Dale, like other NAMI mommies, knows that her son’s need to discuss his feelings is a symptom of his mental illness.
On January 10, 2007, Andre, who doesn’t have any say in what his mother tells the whole world about his personal struggles, had an “emotional outburst” and attacked his mother. What NAMI parents need are laws that force offspring with feelings to take medications which can prevent feelings. Feelings are such a nuisance, more than that…feelings are dangerous!
Dale Milfay could have allowed Andre the human comfort of addressing his feelings, but we wouldn’t want to reinforce healthy behaviors…uh…I mean symptoms of manic rage…now, would we?
No, of course not. If your child wishes to discuss his feelings, call the police immediately!
“Mommy loves you son, we’ll talk after I listen to our fascist leader.”
No “normal” person would be angered by this behavior from someone they need to speak with about something important (a person who theoretically “cares about” him). Yes, and the cops are on the way…
Andre hits his mom. She’s an annoying bitch, but it’s not okay to hit people, so this is a bad thing…
“Ahhhhhh!!! Why are you attacking me son?”
Andre has just given the cops an actual reason to haul him away. Andre realizes this and splits the scene.
“Run for your life! Run! She wants to lock you away again!”
And on the television, President Bush declares, “We are engaged in a struggle that will determine the direction of the global war on terror — and our safety here at home…We go forward with trust that the Author of Liberty will guide us through these trying hours. Thank you and good night.”

Andre’s mom is utterly validated in all her attitudes and actions by someone who also owns a camcorder. That person films her giving her version of this story with her self-satisfied air, and it reaches other callous relatives of people with psychiatric labels, who are also validated in their assholic attitudes and behaviors, which spread, virus-like…
