Watch: University’s Medical School Students Recite “Woke Oath”, “Honor All Indigenous Ways Of Healing” During White Coat Ceremony

In a frightening new video, University of Minnesota medical students can be seen reciting CRT-laced pablum as part of their white coat ceremony. It calls into serious question the ability of these future doctors to practice good medicine, as they will now be expected to treat and prioritize patients based on immutable character

Christopher Rufo shared the entire text of the message in a separate tweet:

With gratitude, we, the students of the University of Minnesota Twin Cities Medical School Class of 2026, stand here today among our friends, families, peers, mentors, and communities who have supported us in reaching this milestone. Our institution is located on Dakota land. Today, many Indigenous people from throughout the state, including Dakota and Ojibwe (ooh-y/b-way), call the Twin Cities home; we also recognize this acknowledgment is not enough.

We commit to uprooting the legacy and perpetuation of structural violence deeply embedded within the healthcare system. We recognize inequities built by past and present traumas rooted in white supremacy, colonialism, the gender binary, ableism, and all forms of oppression. As we enter this profession with opportunity for growth, we commit to promoting a culture of anti-racism, listening, and amplifying voices for positive change. We pledge to honor all Indigenous ways of healing that have been historically marginalized by Western medicine. Knowing that health is intimately connected to our environment, we commit to healing our planet and communities.

We vow to embrace our role as community members and strive to embody cultural humility. We promise to continue restoring trust in the medical system and fulfilling our responsibility as educators and advocates. We commit to collaborating with social, political, and additional systems to advance health equity. We will learn from the scientific innovations made before us and pledge to advance and share this knowledge with peers and neighbors. We recognize the importance of being in community with and advocating for those we serve.

Perhaps blunting the vile nature of this oath, along with its sheer idiocy, is the fact that Big Medicine has already been captured by corrupt forces. How did the pandemic response work out for anyone? Social distancing, lockdowns, vilified treatments, pushed treatments, and everything else was done in exact opposition to sound medicine, so it isn’t like anyone should be shocked medical practices continue sinking lower and lower.

And still, the repercussions of such atrocious policy can only lead to worse places. Not least of the concerns is what these “students” will learn over the course of the next four years. It stands to reason best practices will be eschewed in favor of inclusive regimens.

As good as modern medicine has been, introducing life-saving pharmaceuticals and surgical techniques, we are once more reminded that woke ideology is focused only on destroying. In the long run, no one is helped by focusing on anything other than the truth. In this case, the truth would be focused on what works in medicine and what doesn’t.

And as always, the people purported to be championed and saved will suffer along with the rest of us.
