The thing about being a “progressive” is that sooner or later, you discover you’re never quite radical enough to keep up with the “diversity” demands that dictate Leftist policies. Harvard Medical School, for example, has just announced it is ashamed of its white graduates who become doctors, and the school is in the process of removing photos of white doctors solely because they are people with white skin.
“Dr. Betsy Nabel, the hospital’s president, told The Boston Globe last week that the portraits do not reflect the diversity of students at the medical school,” reports Campus Reform. “[she] suggested that so many portraits of white males may make medical students uncomfortable.” The solution? Eliminate white doctors from the halls of the school.
The new priority for Harvard Medical School, its president now admits, is “putting people of color in power.” This means, of course, granting scholarships, raises and professorships to people based solely on the color of their skin rather than the merit of their actions. In other words, Harvard Medical School is now openly admitting it’s going to start producing waves of doctors who aren’t the most qualified. But they will possess certain superficial qualities — skin color, sexual orientation, gender, etc. — that qualify as “diversity” in the minds of Harvard overlords.
Being transgender, in other words, is more important than being a good doctor, according to Harvard Medical School. Remember that the next time you encounter a doctor who appears to be part of any “diversity” group.
It should be obvious to any intelligent, rational person at this point that if you have a serious medical condition in the future, you absolutely do not want to be treated by a graduate of Harvard Medical School. Even if you’re not someone who judges people by the color of their skin, Harvard Medical School does, and it values skin color over qualifications, skills or proficiency. To make it through Harvard Medical School, it seems, you no longer have to be educated enough… you just have to be “diverse” enough.
Thus, a totally incompetent transgender immigrant will be granted a medical degree with full honors. But a white, heterosexual male with outstanding medical knowledge will be held back, denied positions of authority and denied career-determining opportunities merely because of the color of his skin. This, of course, is called, “inclusiveness” by the deranged Left, an insidious cancer on society that can now only be described as mass mental illness pretending to be “social justice.”
By taking this social justice stance on its medical school students and instructors, Harvard is also contributing to the justified skepticism among medical patients when considering whether non-white doctor are actually qualified to be practicing medicine at all. Knowing that non-white students get promoted through the med school system without actually earning their degrees, a rational person who does not routinely judge people by the color of their skin must still realize that Harvard does judge people by the color of their skin. Thus, this non-white Harvard graduate may very well not have earned their medical degree and may truly be a product of “diversity” rather than education or proficiency. This is a perfectly rational position, even among those who aren’t themselves racists. (Harvard is racist, and so Harvard’s racism must now be taken into account, even by non-racists.)
The upshot is that Harvard is effectively destroying the credibility of those very proficient, intelligent non-white doctors who have actually earned their degrees and positions fair and square. Thus, even an African-American doctor who got no extra credit and no freebies throughout her medical schooling will likely be looked upon by the public as having been a recipient of “medical affirmative action,” which by definition means that proficiency takes a back seat to skin color. In essence, Harvard is creating suspicion across the entire medical system, where patients and coworkers alike are being handed a genuine reason for skepticism of whether doctors of “diversity” ever earned their medical degrees in the first place.
This reality is just a tiny echo of the far greater cancer on society known as “progressivism” or “Leftism.”
Leftism is a disease, and it punishes achievement while handing out unearned “privilege” to certain protected groups such as gays, transgenders and people of certain colors (but not all colors, as Asians are systematically discriminated against by today’s universities). Under the banner of calling for “inclusiveness,” Leftism excludes those who don’t conform to the increasingly radical definition of “equality” — an elusive, moving target that defies any rational justification.
Leftism places no value on the individual, instead assigning value solely based on the group to which a person belongs. If that group is deemed to be sufficiently “progressive,” the person is granted value for being a member of it. On the other hand, if that group is believed to be normal — for example heterosexuals or Christians — it is singled out for punishment, intolerance and bigoted attacks by the Left Cult.
To further its own power and influence over society, all rewards granted by any system — an employer, a university, a government department, etc. — are selectively assigned to Leftists who demonstrate sufficient hatred, bigotry and intolerance toward normal people. Only “activist” Leftists who demonstrate the willingness to exploit and abuse their power to harm others are granted greater positions of authority. This is how America’s universities came to be deranged left-wing indoctrination camps and Antifa terror recruitment centers.
Importantly, Leftists do not believe there is anything wrong in punishing people for being white, rewarding incompetence or stacking the decks of all institutions with progressive bigots who despise a merit-based society (which is the society promoted by Martin Luther King, Jr., by the way, where people are judged based on the content of their character rather than the color of their skin). Left-wing cultists truly believe that their duty is to destroy all merit, oppress all white people, silence those who disagree with them and overthrow all political systems that oppose them.
Leftists, in other words, are authoritarian tyrants, and even if they don’t yet realize it, their beliefs more closely align with communism than any other describable political framework.
This is why Leftism must be defeated. It is an insidious cancer on society, and much like cancer, it continues to spread and fester, infecting more and more functions of the organism until one day it kills the very thing it sought to dominate. If allowed to spread, Leftism will destroy everything it touches: Education, government, news media, sports, the entertainment industry and much more. Defeating Leftism, it turns out, is the single most important goal of our age.
If you value humanity; if you believe people should earn their medical degrees; if you believe that discriminating against people for the color of their skin is wrong; if you believe in fundamental human dignity and treating people fairly then you believe in defeating Leftism in all its forms.
In the mean time, don’t visit any doctor who graduated from Harvard Medical School. They may not have earned their medical degree at all.
