Dr. Do no Harm

People go to the doctor when they are injured or sick knowing that the doctor they are seeing has their personal best interest in mind.  Believing without a doubt that the medical professional they are seeing will treat them with discretion and have confidence in their doctor to provide them with the best medical treatment possible.  The doctor patient relationship is so unique and special primarily because doctors take an oath to do no harm. 


Given today's political climate, is it safe to say, that if you happen to be a patient who has conservative views will you be treated with the best medical treatment possible?  


Media outlets such as CNN, MSNBC, ABC, have characterized Trump supporters as Islamophobic, homophobic, xenophobic and bigots, to name a few.  Politicians, have jumped on this band wagon such as Hank Johnson when he gave his speech on New Years day, characterizing Trump and his supporters as racist uneducated alcoholic Nazi's.    

The Boston Globe got in on the labeling of Trump supporters in an article entitled "Blunt talk about Trump and his supporters. Referencing Trump and his supporters, "have shown contempt not just for facts, but also for learning, for expertise, for the founding principles of democracy itself." 


On MSNBC, Donnie Deutch is quoted as saying, "If you vote for Trump, then you, the voter, you, not Donald Trump, are standing at the border, like Nazis," he also said. "If you vote, you can no longer separate yourself" from the "evilness of Donald Trump."


The majority of Americans if given the chance would have killed Hitler to prevent the Holocaust, or had done everything within their power to prevent the slaughter of innocent people during that period in time.  However, the current administration has to date done nothing to harm anyone of any particular nationality, religion, or sexual orientation.  They have not targeted any race of people as being inferior despite what the media pundits are claiming.  


With the rise of Antifa, an organization that employs violent tactics to stifle  opposing opinions, one would question whether or not their primary care physician is a subscriber to that philosophy.  While most doctors do not advertise their hatred towards their patients, and undoubtedly provide the best care for their patients, there is an incident of a doctor espousing her absolute hatred for patients of Jewish origin.  


The doctor in question is Lara Kollab first year resident at Cleveland Medical Clinic in Ohio. It was discovered by Canary Mission that not only did this doctor despise the state of Israel and Jewish people, but even threatened on her twitter account that she would give the wrong medicine to people who supported Israel. Her twitter account is so vile that when discovered, she shut down her social media and was later fired from her position at the Medical Clinic.  

Clearly from her twitter posts it is easy to see that she would discriminate against both Christians and Jews as a medical professional.

Is this an isolated case, or do health care professionals disguise their hatred of those that share an opposing opinion?


In this day of political turmoil, are doctors or other health care professionals going to begin to discriminate against patients who they believe to have a dissenting political opinion from their own?  Its something to consider.
