The NRA recently criticized the American College of Physicians for coming out for gun control. Here’s what the NRA said:
Someone should tell self-important anti-gun doctors to stay in their lane. Half of the articles in Annals of Internal Medicine are pushing for gun control. Most upsetting, however, the medical community seems to have consulted NO ONE but themselves.
Many doctors replied by saying that this was their lane.
So who is right?
The NRA is right.
The only purpose of a doctors association is to facilitate communication of medical information between doctors and healthcare professionals for educational purposes.
That is enough.
The purpose of a doctors association is not to pass resolutions on Red China, gun control, abortion, immigration or any other issue.
Doctors have enough on their plate just taking care of patients.
Doctors associations have enough on their plate helping doctors become better doctors.
They can barely do that.
If doctors associations stayed in their lane and ceased involving themselves in politics, healthcare would be far better off.
These associations can’t even get good insurance for doctors. They’ve done a singularly bad job in defending the rights of doctors.
The so-called leaders of these doctors associations have been co-opted by the political elites of the New World Order to prosecute the New World Order’s agenda; hence, the less these doctors associations do, the better.
It must be a heady experience for the president of a doctors association to be invited to fly on Air Force One or to dine in the White House at a State Dinner. No wonder they act as puppy dogs. The dog biscuits of empire must be mighty tasty.
With that stated, it is totally appropriate for individual physicians to make their statements as individuals to their representative. I couldn’t care less where they as individuals come down on the issue of gun control.
But a doctors association?
No, they need to stay in their lane.
It’s dangerous for doctors associations to involve themselves in politics.
It risks doctors becoming weaponized as tools of the government thereby demeaning the profession.
A doctor like anyone else must function as an individual and prosecute good medicine tempered by his individual morality not the collectivist groupthink of the government or the New World Order.
If they don’t, there will be hell to pay.
Just ask the Armenian people.
Doctors occupy an important role in society. They are one of the few educated people, along with pastors – who almost everybody sees, who almost everybody needs – who deal with life and death issues and who can stand as independent checks against government abuse.
Let’s keep it that way.
Let’s keep doctors associations out of politics.
If they don’t doctors will be seduced. Doctors will be used to justify taking innocent lives; and people, who view doctors as responsible for waging the war against bacteria and disease, will come to view those innocent people as microbes and pests – justifiably eradicated.
This is how governments work.
It begins innocently when doctors associations start talking about politics instead of medicine.
Let them stay in their lane.
