Maybe So-Called ‘Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity’ Training Isn’t So Worthless After All

Fresh from my DIE (Diversity, Inclusion and Equity) training, I wanted to get these words down in bits and bytes. Not that I was worried about forgetting, but because I was so excited by what I had learned and, as a result, epiphanied.

In class, we explored why it is necessary to remove the statues, images, stories, writings, memories, lives and evidence of slaveholders, i.e., cancel them.

Scum, human detritus, such as Lincoln, Washington, Jefferson, Madison and the rest of the miscreants, either held slaves, were oppressors, racists, sexists, genocidal nutcases or were otherwise similarly inclined.

San Francisco, in removing the names of this filth explained the action by saying, “…[they] significantly diminished the opportunities of those amongst us to the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” “It’s a message to our families, our students, and our community,”…”It’s not just symbolic. It’s a moral message.”

Understandable.

Many teachers take DIE courses. Many are in my class. I learned of the untold number of students who rightfully claimed that they could not add 5 and 3 to make 8, because they were oppressed to distraction by their school being named after James Madison. Or Abe Lincoln. Or George Washington.

Oh, the horror.

The power of this nominal racism is great and unoverestimatable. One teacher, whose school is, fortunately for its students, named after a member of an underrepresented group volunteered that her (she identifies as a woman, currently) students are doing poorly in math, too, but that her school is a mere 3 miles from a Lincoln, 4 miles from a Jefferson and is in a suburb neighboring one with a Madison.

Like reiki, racism travels and affects over great distances.

As stated by the San Franciscans, these incorrectly celebrated individuals lived lives that were consistent with their times but inconsistent with ours. Their lack of foresight alone, to not live as we, should consign them to the memory hole.

Thankfully, it does.

Adding travesty to travesty is the fact that this justifiable form of cancel culture is not extended to other domains where there are persons worthy of similar treatment. Injustice is not limited to politics.

One such domain with a history of injustice is the medical profession.

The way Osler, Salk, Lister, Semmelweis, and Sabin (to name a few) practiced medicine significantly diminished the opportunities of those amongst us to the right of life and the pursuit of health. Canceling them is a message of holistic care to our families, our students, and our community…Canceling them is not just symbolic, it’s a moral message.

Semmelweis, a white, male-identifying physician, is credited with saving (white) mothers. In fact, he is nicknamed the “savior of mothers.” He:

discovered that the incidence of puerperal fever (also known as “childbed fever”) could be drastically reduced by requiring hand disinfection in obstetrical clinics. Puerperal fever was common in mid-19th-century hospitals and often fatal. Semmelweis proposed the practice of washing hands with chlorinated lime solutions in 1847 while working in Vienna General Hospital’s First Obstetrical Clinic, where doctors’ wards had three times the mortality of midwives’ wards.

This white, male-identifying barbarian stuck his filthy (literally) hands inside women (oppressed) without even washing them, causing illness and death to these (thankfully white) female (gender choice-suppressed) patients. Note, docs (male) had 3x the mortality of midwives when it came to taking care of female patients.

Who cares if he figured out the cause later? He is still a killer. Of women. By a factor of 3. Like The Founders (hah!) who seem to have (eventually) figured out that slavery can be considered a negative (even though they kept slaves) – although any move they made to “end” slavery was for selfish gain – Semmelweis washed his hands probably for appearance sake. And to keep patients he wanted to date alive. Scumbag.

Salk and Sabin, (white, male-identifying, what else?) oppressor Jews (evictors of peace-loving Palestinian Muslim Arabs), were virologists – predecessors-in-profession of Shi Zhengli, “The Bat Lady of the Wuhan Institute of Virology.” Both of these quacks worked with the polio virus. Salk “developed one of the first successful polio vaccines and Sabin is “best known for developing the oral polio vaccine”

Salk was an authoritarian, fascist, He “campaigned vigorously for mandatory vaccination throughout the rest of his life, calling the universal vaccination of children against disease a ‘moral commitment’. (sic)”

We know all too well about vaccine mandates and especially when it comes to children and the harm they cause.

Sabin came here from Bialystock Russian Empire and changed his name. Probably to avoid arrest. He was a traitor to his adoptive country and traveled “to Cuba in 1967 to discuss with Cuban officials the possibility of establishing a collaborative relationship between the United States and Cuba through their respective national academies of sciences, in spite of the fact that the two countries did not have formal diplomatic ties.”

Do I smell a Logan Act violation? You bet I do. You should, too.

These guys must give Good Saint Fauci great embarrassment.

William Osler (You guessed it – white, male-identifying) is the man who “created the first residency program for specialty training of physicians…”Medical training, including residency training, is systemically racist and this was started by the racist Osler who has sexistly “been described as the Father of Modern Medicine and one of the ‘greatest diagnosticians ever to wield a stethoscope’.”

This latter faintest of praises regarding his alleged skills with the stethoscope is an indictment of his malpractice of medicine. There is no clear written record that this quack ever ordered a single x-ray of the chest – a fundamental diagnostic test for detecting thoracic and pulmonary diseases. Failure to use the chest x-ray today for such diagnoses is grounds for malpractice.

Rather than help his patients, Osler stubbornly opted to continue the mystique attendant to his use of the stethoscope so as to billow praise of himself and inflate his legend.

Then there is Lister. Another Whitey. Another privileged male. This doc not only combines the malice of Semmelweis by infecting his patients until it was no longer convenient but compounds his sins with conflicting interests. See, Lister was both a surgeon and a pathologist.

Get it? The ultimate self-referral scheme. Cut (do surgery), kill (infect the victim), and ka-ching (drum up pathology business).

Sweet.

At some point, Lister thought to do surgery in a sterile manner, but, just like Semmelweis, not until he offed a bunch of patients.

The losers above are but a small percentage of the medical folx worthy of canceling and the reasons mentioned above are just a start. Likely more examples of malpractice and illegal behaviors can be found.

Let’s get started canceling ASAP and show the world how virtue really looks. There is much good work to be done.
