The Left simply can seem to resist making everything about race – even when life and death is in the balance.
Now, they’re fanning the flames to make sure Americans become even more divided.
And it’s a partisan battle likely to play out in a hospital’s ER in one blue state city.
Martin Luther King Jr. dreamed that his four children would one day live in a nation where “they will not be judged by the color of our skin, but by the content of that character.”
Unfortunately, leftists are beyond obsessed with race and are pushing for everything from segregation among teacher populations in Minnesota to racially driven medication disbursement in New York City.
If there’s a way to divide Americans by color, Democrats are on it.
Now, NYC’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene has announced it will “consider race and ethnicity when assessing individual risk” as it decides who will get potentially life-saving COVID-19 treatments.
“New York City’s and state’s departments of health have reached a divisive and destructive low.” Dr. Joel Zinberg wrote in an op-ed for the New York Post. “These directives are immoral, illegal and bear no relation to the science.”
According to the New York Post, the new policy is already causing hospital staff to waste time playing political games in the middle of trying to save the lives of their patients.
A Staten Island doctor, who asked to remain anonymous, said he filled two prescriptions for Paxlovid recently and had to tell the pharmacist the race of his patients before the treatment was authorized.
“In my 30 years of being a physician I have never been asked that question when I have prescribed any treatment,” the doctor told the New York Post. “The mere fact of having to ask this question is a slippery slope.”
At this point, there’s no doubt radical leftists are trying to push us all off the edge of something – the biggest question is whether it’s a slippery slope or free fall into absolute chaos.
