An ordinary trip to the ER is bad enough. But add on woke staff immersed in critical race theory and you end up with murder.
Democrats and their media have been constantly lecturing us about systemic racism and the effect on health for minorities. And yet they have yet to turn up a single case of white doctors refusing to treat minority patients because of their race.
I’ve heard from doctors who’ve been reported to their departments for criticizing residents for being late. (It was seen by their trainees as an act of racism.) I’ve heard from doctors who’ve stopped giving trainees honest feedback for fear of retaliation. I’ve spoken to those who have seen clinicians and residents refuse to treat patients based on their race or their perceived conservative politics.
The Katie Herzog piece focuses on the core topic of liberals (as opposed to leftists) which is opposing social justice destruction of political norms and the purge of those who speak out against it. And that’s an important topic in its own right.
But what jumps out at me is that people are potentially being killed by critical race theory.
And that frankly strikes me as more urgent.
As another example of the generation gap, an ER doctor on the West Coast said he sees providers, particularly younger ones, applying antiracist principles in choosing how they allocate their time and which patients they choose to work with. “I’ve heard examples of Covid-19 cases in the emergency department where providers go, ‘I’m not going to go treat that white guy, I’m going to treat the person of color instead because whatever happened to the white guy, he probably deserves it.’”
This is murder.
While the media is putting on a full-court press for critical race theory, it’s very potentially killing people. When you have enough medical staff who act like this, prioritizing triage treatment over race, people will die.
