More On The CRPD

Anne Laurie, Balloon Juice - July 23, 2014

Here is a mainstream take on the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. By mainstream I mean not from a disability advocacy group. It is, obviously, from a fairly liberal, Democratic blog. Still, liberal blogs don’t always quite get the point on disability issues, even when they're on the right side. This post doesn’t say much about the disability aspect, but it does, correctly I believe, identify the real problem, which has nothing whatever to do with disability, and everything to do with right-wing, “black helicopter” paranoia. I hate to be pessimistic, but how do you fight that?
