UCLA School of Medicine Glorifies Revolutionary Suicide

Let’s hope the young doctors coming out of UCLA’s medical school never encounter patients as sick as the moonbats in charge of their instruction. Earlier we learned they were subjected to a mandatory 2-hour lecture by the keffiyeh-covered Lisa Gray-Garcia, who denounced modern medicine as “white science,” proclaimed the October 7 terror atrocities to be justified, and demanded students kneel in obeisance to “Mama Earth.” Now we learn of a talk hosted by the Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences that promoted self-immolation as a form of “revolutionary suicide”:

The talk, “Depathologizing Resistance,” was delivered on April 2 by two psychiatry residents at UCLA, Drs. Ragda Izar and Afaf Moustafa, under the auspices of the department’s diversity office and UCLA’s Health Ethics Center, according to slides and emails obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

No diversity office serves a constructive purpose. Neither does an “ethics center” run by fiends who encourage suicide for political purposes.

The remarks centered on the suicide of Aaron Bushnell, the U.S. serviceman who set himself on fire in February to protest U.S. support for Israel—or, as Izar put it, “indigenous Palestine.”

Regarding the moonbat Bushnell’s conspicuous mental illness,

“Yes, he carried a lot of distress,” Izar said, according to audio of the talk reviewed by the Free Beacon. “But does that mean the actions he engaged in are any less valid?”

With leftists in charge, a psychiatrist’s job isn’t to make you less crazy. It is to affirm you in your craziness.

The talk reflects the erosion of what was until recently a bedrock medical norm: From the American Psychiatric Association to the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, all professional mental health bodies warn against glorifying self-harm, lest it inspire others to harm themselves.

The “first do no harm” principle went out the window in favor of “gender-affirming care.” Now doctors are cutting healthy fingers off to pander to the psychotic delusions of their patients. The notoriously kooky psychiatry field wasn’t about to be left behind in this march of progress.

The Experts have praised the kids they help mess up for committing suicide:

Pediatricians got a vivid taste of the brave new world in 2022 when Morissa Ladinsky, in an address at the American Academy of Pediatrics’s annual conference, praised a transgender teenager, Leelah Alcorn, for “boldly … ending her life” and leaving a suicide note that “went viral, literally around the world.”

Ladinsky, a pediatrician at the University of Alabama Children’s Hospital, leads the clinic’s “Gender Health Team.”

Back to UCLA:

Izar and Moustafa, who are practicing psychiatrists, argued that self-immolation is a reasonable response to geopolitical events and that the taboo against it serves “the interests of power.” By “perpetuating the stigma of self-immolation,” they said, psychiatrists “discredit” resistance to “power structures” like “colonization,” “homophobia,” and “white supremacy,” framing legitimate acts of protest as signs of psychiatric dysfunction.

In short, they are as nutty as their patients, but with the difference that their nuttiness is more dangerous because it centers on an evil ideology.

Their contentions undercut official guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which warns that “bestowing honor and admiration” on suicide victims can inspire others to take their own lives.

No doubt the CDC will get on board once it realizes that encouraging mentally ill people to commit suicide helps combat colonialization, homophobia, and white supremacy, et cetera, ad nauseam.

[Liberal] jargon was peppered throughout Izar and Moustafa’s talk. One slide asserted that psychiatry has “weaponized tools of colonization, racism, anti-blackness, homophobia, and various tools of oppressions.” Another told psychiatrists to “embed your practice with an anti-colonial lens” and “recognize that mental health is intimately tied to liberation.”

Every institution subverted by leftists is reduced to a dysfunctional, demented, malevolent farce. The medical profession will be no exception.
