This is really really bad - our good friend Michael Sharpe tweeted about this article. An excerpt:
Thus, the entire social activism “war” being conducted on CFS/ME researchers is founded on false premises. Nonetheless, it is having dire consequences. Talented scientists such as Dr. Sharpe can shift the focus of their research when the harassment becomes intolerable. Tragically, he no longer studies CFS/ME, instead of working with another group adversely impacted by fatigue—critically ill cancer patients.

They'll just go on to hurt other people if we do nothing. I hope the editor gets a bunch of emails about this article.

I think this guy needs to learn more about what he is writing about.
