The new Surgeon General

You’re looking to appoint the Surgeon General – the top Government medical post in the US. Where do you look for a suitable candidate, one capable of inspiring a new generation of medical break-throughs? The Mayo Clinic? Harvard Medical School?

Or an obscure backwoods practice lost somewhere in a Louisiana swamp?

If you’re part of Obama’s ‘colour-blind’ Administration, you’d go for the last option. Why? Because it’s one of the few places you’ll find a black physician. And being black seems to be the one and only qualification that Dr. Regina Benjamin – a 20 stone mountain of fat - seems to have.
.
Admittedly she ‘graduated’ from one of the country’s handful of black medical schools. These ‘graduates’ are so poorly qualified that almost all end up in administrative roles on the government payroll. In those instances where they are let loose on the general public the results can be literally life-threatening, as in the case of the Martin Luther King Hospital in Los Angeles which had to be closed down to protect the public.

With such a background you’d hardly expect her to announce some stunning innovative thinking in her maiden speech. And she didn’t disappoint.

“In what was one of her first speeches to a large crowd since she was sworn in Nov. 3, Dr. Regina Benjamin noted that the proportion of U.S. physicians who are minorities is only 6 percent—the same proportion as a century ago.

In a 27-minute speech, Benjamin told health leaders in the audience to encourage young minorities to pursue careers in medicine or other ambitions.”

That's right folks, she spent nearly half an hour whingeing that ‘minorities’ (read blacks – there are huge numbers of Asian doctors in the US) are under-represented. ‘It be racism’, I presume was her message.
.
Blacks have a big problem in graduating from proper medical schools because, with their lower IQ levels they can't handle the academic workload. It’s as simple as that. Wherever you see black PhDs you’ll note that they’re invariably in the soft subjects like ebonics, black history, languages, racism reparation studies or other crap like that. And that's so because faculty in those fields, being culturally sensitive, can award the highest degrees, secure in the knowledge that it doesn’t matter and that nobody really gives a shit anyway.

However, in science, engineering and medicine there’s usually only one right answer. And that's where blacks come unstuck. According to two of my friends who are doctors in the US, reputable medical schools there did try to push through unqualified blacks a few decades ago – at the expense of whites, of course. However, they failed their internships in droves, which then (happily) reflected back on the medical school faculty.
.
Presumably then the new SG will be pleased with another medical initiative from the colour-blind Obama Administration. Thanks to Rastus for this link to the National Review)

“It directs the secretary of health and human services to award federal grants worth billions of dollars to educational institutions that train medical-service providers. However, “priority” for federal dollars is to be given only to those institutions offering “preferential” admissions to underrepresented minorities”

The measure will force medical institutions to hire based on race and sex, not qualifications, and to lower their admission standards, which will lead to even more “low-quality” doctors. Medical students admitted based on lower qualifications generally perform more poorly on licensing exams.Race-based admissions end up endangering patients — such as those treated by Patrick Chavis, one of whom bled to death due to Chavis’s medical malpractice.


Chavis was the black applicant admitted to the University of California at Davis Medical School even though he had much weaker academic qualifications than Allan Bakke, a white applicant who was rejected from the school and subsequently was the plaintiff in a famous Supreme Court case. Chavis eventually lost his medical license because of his gross negligence, incompetence, and “inability to perform some of the most basic duties required of a physician.”

By the way, in 1996 (before Chavis was found out), Senator Edward M. Kennedy called him a "perfect example" of how affirmative action worked.

Boy, Ted got a lot of things wrong, but he sure struck paydirt with that!

As the song goes, ‘when will they ever learn’. Why don't white Americans rise up in righteous indignation?

Intensive brainwashing on the race issue has been going on in the US for at least 50 years:

Americans dont rise up in indignation because they've been totally brainwashed.

W Baker said...

The US is simply too big, too stupid, and, the ones who've been fortunate to stay outside the genetic mud puddle, as Clovis, says are too brainwashed to care.

This is not hyperbolic - any well-heeled traveller can attest to this - US citizens are on the whole some of the least-informed, least curious Yahoos this side of the moon --- (as opposed to the Houyhnhnms - trying to keep this post relevant to the motherland!)

We have completely lost the plot over here - if we ever had it to begin with...

All that said, Happy Christmas to all and the very best New Year. It is the true season of Hope - and it's not the kind from Arkansas (Clinton) or Chicago (Obama) - or the bastards from Connecticut by way of Texas. (Sorry for the US political allusions.)

Americans will not rise up in indignation because american men are Pussies. Ever since they lay on their backs and waited for their women to mount them they have amounted to nothing. Guys you need to get on top and THRUST before you can get things done.

"Why don't white Americans rise up in righteous indignation?"

In order to rise up in righteous indignation you need a cause to believe in - not just an enemy to oppose.

WHITE society in the USA and elsewhere - including Ireland - is busily engaged in camapigns of self-destruction. Many of these involve hysteria about child-abuse to such an extent that adults are afraid of being alone with children - and indeed are often forbidden by law to be so. Large numbers of people in authority (especially Catholic clergy) have been the subject of ludicrous witch-hunts. In the USA the most famous victim was Father Paul Shanley whose appeal is now being heard by the Massacheutetts Supreme Court. The following is from an article in The Nation magazine on 16 March last by JoAnn Wypijewski:

"The accuser asserted that from the age of 6, in 1983, he had been raped and otherwise indecently assaulted by the defendant for three years in a busy church on Sunday mornings. Each assault, it was alleged, instantly erased his memory of what had just happened, so that the boy re-approached the defendant in a state of innocent unknowing, to be assaulted again, to forget everything again and again, and then move on in life without the slightest inkling of the experience until twenty years later, when it all came back to him."

This is "Repressed Memory" and it is not an isolated case; Shanley is the CHIEF whipping boy for anti-clerical "liberals" in the USA - nearly all white, middle-class WASPs. These people are ripping their own society apart and cannot "rise up" for any cause.
