Forcing Doctors to Inform on Microaggressors

“Snitches give stitches,” as Jonathan Turley puts it. Doctors in Oregon may soon risk losing their medical license not only for committing trivial thought crimes (a.k.a. “microaggressions”) but for failing to report them.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

The state’s medical board is in the process of shoehorning “microaggressions”—innocently intentioned behaviors interpreted by women or minorities to be subliminal communications of bias—into its definition of “unprofessional conduct,” according to the proposed rule, which the board unveiled in April.

This will not improve the quality of healthcare. As former University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine associate dean Stanley Goldfarb of the countermoonbat medical group Do No Harm observes,

“If [doctors] believe that they can be sanctioned because they deliver bad news or make a comment that the patient misinterprets, this will lead to a chilling effect on speech and ultimately lead to deterioration in the patient-physician relationship.”

A poisoned patient–physician relationship and CYA as an approach to medicine are already problems due to lawsuit abuse. They will now get worse.

Here’s how easy it is to commit a microaggression:

“America is the land of opportunity.” “I believe the most qualified person should get the job.” “America is a melting pot.” Those are examples of harmful “microaggressions,” according to Columbia professor Derald Wing Sue, lauded by Oregon’s state government as a “microaggressions expert.” […]

In its 2021 “DEI Action Plan,” for example, the Oregon Department of Administrative Services said posing the question, “How did you get your job?” to a minority constitutes a “racial microaggression.”

Other sentiments designated by Sue as microaggressions include “Everyone can succeed if they just work hard enough” and “There is only one race, the human race.”

As a rule of thumb, if Joy Reid would not bob her head in agreement, then don’t say it, because it is a microaggression.

We have passed the point where it is sufficient never to say anything a radical leftist would dispute. Doctors will be required to actively participate in imposing tyranny. Turley notes that under the proposed rule,

“a licensee must report within 10 business days to the Board any information that appears to show that a licensee is or may be medically incompetent or is or may be guilty of unprofessional or dishonorable conduct or is or may be a licensee with a physical incapacity.”

Committing a microaggression would officially qualify as “unprofessional or dishonorable conduct.” Those who fail to report microaggressing colleagues to the Stasi might also lose their licenses.

That’s the kind of country liberals are turning this into.
