If any readers watched the videocast by The Liberty Belles, “Bombshell: Career Caste System On The Rise In The US”, Lynne and Suzanne talked about the emergence of a “caste” system related to careers gaining momentum in the united States using the education system as the jumping off point. While many are concerned about this, as well they should be, other forms of “caste” systems are rearing their ugly heads in a nation that has based their government on Christian principles. As Cowboy fans in the stadium threw plastic bottles at referees, wrongly since the loss was not caused by referees but the Cowboys’ own quarterback, these “fanatics” seem to ignore the truly important issues facing the united States as they are “entertained” out of their freedoms.
Because of the false doctrine that is “critical race theory” (CRT), medical science and practice is now embracing this doctrine that will create a “caste” system for medical care and treatment based upon race using CRT as its foundation.
S.R. Piccoli presented the change at The American Thinker.
… Today the monsters — or morbid symptoms — are among us as neighbors, colleagues, and friends accept and embrace the Critical Race Theory and its ramifications in the many fields of human life and scientific research.
One of these fields — perhaps the most unthinkable — is that of medical science and practice. Things have meaningfully changed since on June 25, 2021, White Coats for Black Lives (WC4BL), a national organization led by medical students, published its statement of “vision and values.” The organization, which boasts 75 chapters at medical schools across the country and was called to action by the Black Lives Matter movement, “aims to dismantle racism in medicine and fight for the health of Black people and other people of color […]. Our job is two-fold: 1) dismantling dominant, exploitative systems in the United States, which are largely reliant on anti-Black racism, colonialism, cisheteropatriarchy, white supremacy, and capitalism; and 2) rebuilding a future that supports the health and well-being of marginalized communities.” WC4BL also focuses on “dismantling fatphobia,” embracing “Black queer feminist praxis (theory and practice),” “unlearning toxic medical knowledge and relearning medical care that centers the needs of Black people and communities.”
Yes, America, these are your “up and coming” practitioners of allopathic medicine supported by the American Medical Association (AMA) and the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). No longer does “science” mean anything in “medicine”, as all have seen during the CONvid-1984 planned scamdemic. No longer does “first do no harm” carry any meaning. And, no longer do medical professionals engage in caring for your health (a misnomer for certain) – it’s all about following the latest “political” movement and tailoring “medicine” to meet the political narrative, as well as what drug criminal pharmaceutical companies want to push. This is more than dangerous; it’s outright unethical, lawless (discriminatory), and negligent.
As if that was not enough, WC4BL calls for the end of both prisons and police and proposes to “destigmatize and decriminalize drug use,” “decriminalize sex work,” offer “universal” access to abortion, and “advocate for the bodily autonomy of trans and non-binary people by removing medical gatekeepers from the process of accessing gender-affirming healthcare (such as requirements for therapists’ letters prior to accessing gender-affirming surgery).”
On top of that, the Association of American Medical Colleges’ (AAMC) recent guide to anti-racism planning suggests that universities develop a scorecard “similar to the White Coats for Black Lives’ Racial Justice Report Card.” A very important endorsement! Similarly, the October 30, 2021 “Guide to Language, Narrative, and Concepts,” a collaboration between the American Medical Association (AMA) and the AAMC Center for Health Justice, offers “a guidance on language for promoting health equity, contrasting traditional/outdated terms with equity-focused alternatives,” explores “how narratives (the power behind words) matter,” and provides “a glossary of key terms, defining key concepts, and whenever possible acknowledging debates over definitions and usage.” Terms such as “Caucasian,” for instance, should be avoided. Conventional phrases such as “Low-income people have the highest level of coronary artery disease in the United States” and “Native Americans have the highest mortality rates in the United States” should be changed respectively into
“People underpaid and forced into poverty as a result of banking policies, real estate developers gentrifying neighborhoods, and corporations weakening the power of labor movements, among others, have the highest level of coronary artery disease in the United States,”
“Dispossessed by the government of their land and culture, Native Americans have the highest mortality rates in the United States.”
The AMA and AAMC guide goes on to call individualism and meritocracy “malignant narratives” creating harm and stating that “race-based medicine leads directly to racial health inequities”.
What is being taught in medical schools these days? Doesn’t sound as though potential physicians, surgeons, and specialists are being instructed in medical conditions. Instead, these potential medical doctors are being instructed in theories based upon ideology to create a “caste” system of care using “race” as the design, while engaging in rhetoric with no sound facts to back it up.
Quite predictably, several mostly conservative researchers and lawmakers with ties to the medical profession rejected the “woke” guidelines as potentially dangerous. Bonner Cohen, a senior fellow at the conservative National Center for Public Policy Research, warned that the guidelines further inflame racial divisions in the U.S. “One of the first thoughts that came into my mind is that this is a violation of the Hippocratic oath which says all physicians must do no harm,” he told the Washington Times.
Sally Satel, M.D., a practicing psychiatrist and lecturer at the Yale University School of Medicine who also works at the American Enterprise Institute, writing in the Australian online magazine Quillette, argued that “indoctrinologists” were distracting medical professionals from their rightful purpose. “Physicians cannot — and should not — ‘dismantle racism and intersecting systems of oppression’ as part of their clinical mission,” she wrote. “To imply that such activity falls within our scope of expertise is to abuse our authority. Doctors can reasonably lobby for policies directly promoting health, such as better coverage for patient care or more services, but we will lose our focus and dilute our efforts to care for patients if we seek to address the perceived root causes of health disparities.”
Many “doctors” rarely “lobby” for “policies directly promoting health, ….” What they usually lobby for are “laws” to protect themselves. Moreover, some health care facilities will provide “cover” for negligent, incompetent physicians, while physicians are loathe to expose negligent, incompetent colleagues. And, Dr. Satel should define what she terms “health disparities”. As individuals with differing needs, health care should be tailored to meet the needs of the individual. And “health care” does not mean only “illness care”, which has become the focus of allopathic medicine. In some respects, it can be said that “doctors” contribute to “health disparities”, meaning a continuation in an unhealth state, because allopathic medicine is focused on illness identification and symptom management – not addressing the cause to alleviate the illness.
What does the Hippocratic oath mean to physicians these days? Nothing, nada, zilch – and it shouldn’t. The Hippocratic oath is made to a false god – Apollo. Right there is the beginning of deception. There is only one God, one King whose name is Jesus Christ, and acknowledged as “The Great Physician”. Moreover, the Hippocratic oath recognizes “multiple gods”, which is NOT in keeping with Christian principles. If an oath were taken to the one true living God, and Christ our King, the practice of medicine would be better than it is today.
It isn’t just “conservatives” who should reject this “woke” hooey in the medical profession. All people should reject it because it allows for targeting of individuals based on an arbitrary set of “guidelines” that can be interpreted and applied to create a medical caste system, which it will do so eventually. So, while one may be in the “preferred” group today, these arbitrary “guidelines” could place one in an “unpreferred” group tomorrow – as we are being shown to already occur.
Five professors and doctors, speaking to the Washington Free Beacon, as quoted by Piccoli, stated, “Integrating these ideas into medicine would be a catastrophe, resulting in under qualified doctors, missed diagnoses, and unscientific medical school curricula.”
The guidance won’t just influence the way doctors talk, these practitioners said, but also what they know and how they treat patients. It could even make them unwilling to screen racial minorities for serious conditions—including many types of cancer—that they are more likely to inherit, on the mistaken belief that genes play no role in racial health disparities.
“Some vulnerability isn’t about economic or social marginalization,” said Jeff Singer, a general surgeon in Arizona. “A lot of conditions”—such as Tay-Sachs, which disproportionately impacts Ashkenazi Jews, and triple-negative breast cancer, which disproportionately affects black women—”vary based on genetics. We’re talking about matters of life and death here.”
Singer’s warning echoes the argument that five black professors in March made in the New England Journal of Medicine, where they described genetic denialism as “a form of naive ‘color blindness'” that would “perpetuate and potentially exacerbate disparities.”
There is an entire discussion that could be had on the failure of the “Human Genome Project” to link “genes” with disease. That will not be covered. The point is this ideological hijacking of the medical profession will produce deleterious results.
The burning question is “who is funding this sort of Orwellian type of medical teaching and practice”? According to The Washington Free Beacon, it is an “incestuous network of non-profits” including “Race Forward” and “the Narrative Initiative”. Race Forward is funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation while The Narrative Initiative is funded by The Atlantic Philanthropies and Ford Foundation. The guide also uses a report from George Soros’s Open Society Foundation. The Washington Free Beacon indicates “the chief medical officer of New York City, Michelle Morse, participated in the creation of that report, as did critical race theorist Kimberlé Crenshaw and anti-Israel activist Linda Sarsour.”
The AMA/AAMC “guide” will impact admissions standards as well as curricula content at medical schools. It could even change the way medicine measures merit – “from objective criteria like grades and test scores to subjective criteria like diversity statements, which are increasingly common at medical schools.” Moreover, it could result in the “reluctance” to flunk low-performing medical students and cause a tripling down on affirmative action. A report from the AMA/AAMC indicated “numerical scoring ‘negatively impacts diversity based on known group differences in performance’—with whites and Asians significantly outscoring blacks and Hispanics.”
According to some doctors, these pressures have already lowered the quality of medical care. “I’ve certainly seen residents’ intellectual capability dropping over time,” said one professor who belongs to the AMA and who told the Free Beacon he would be fired if he went on the record. “Residents are just not as capable of caring for patients as they were 20 years ago.”
A professor at one Ivy League medical school agreed, telling the Free Beacon that the curriculum has gotten easier over time because administrators want to avoid failing less qualified admittees. “In order to get them through, the standards for everyone have been lowered,” the professor said.
Mistakes in medicine can be deadly: According to a 2018 study by Johns Hopkins medical school, medical error is the third leading cause of death in the United States.
One could argue medical error is higher on the leading cause of death list in the united States with the current CONvid 1984 planned scamdemic.
Now, more than ever, individuals should seek to shift away from allopathic medicine unless one is dealing with the need for emergent care, as in heart attacks, strokes, car accidents, broken bones, etc. We should shift toward a naturopathic/osteopathic level of medicine for most of our “health” care needs. It is up to the people to create that demand and reject the current atmosphere of “medical practice” this is actually harming us more than helping us. Moreover, it would take the control out of the hands of the criminal pharmaceutical companies and individuals who think “wokeism” is more important than health.
