Told ya

You will comply or you will die.

 

 

Patients deemed to be “racist” or “homophobic” will be denied care in NHS Trust hospitals under new rules set to take effect in April.

Currently, staff can refuse to treat non-critical patients who are verbally aggressive or physically violent towards them,” reports Sky News.

“But these protections will extend to any harassment, bullying or discrimination, including homophobic, sexist or racist remarks.”

Police will also be given new powers to prosecute “hate crimes” committed against NHS staff.

What is determined to be “racist” or “homophobic” is anyone’s guess, since many elderly patients will be totally unfamiliar with modern politically correct speech codes and could be deemed to have behaved in a racist or homophobic way even if they didn’t maliciously intend to.

As Jack Montgomery highlights, “In late 2017 an NHS patient who requested a female nurse to carry out a cervical smear complained when the hospital sent a person with “an obviously male appearance… close-cropped hair, a male facial appearance and voice, large number of tattoos and facial stubble” who insisted “My gender is not male. I’m a transsexual.”

The line between critical and non-critcal care is also up for debate. Will refusal to treat a patient because they said something someone deems offensive result in accidental deaths?

This is even worse than China’s social credit score, which hasn’t yet gone so far as to punish people by withdrawing medical treatment if they engage in wrongthink.

First it was deplatforming people from social media websites, then it was deplatforming people from bank accounts and mortgages. Now it’s deplatforming people from hospital treatment. Literally eliminating people’s right to basic health care because of their political or social opinions.

It’s also important to emphasize that these changes are coming in under a supposedly “conservative” government.

Respondents poked fun at the new rules.

“This is going to be hilarious when a boomer is denied his double bypass cause he called someone coloured on Facebook,” remarked one.

Yep, compliance is not optional.  

Did you see what went on at Ohio University this week?  Its sad to think that people who are supposed to have superior grey matter feel the need to react so violently to speech they don't agree with.

Yep. Saw that. College campuses have become the most intolerant places in the country. Leftist are control freaks.

Whoa there, oh libertarian freedom loving  guru.

The response to her presence wasn’t guided  by school policy or organized any clandestine group.

It was free individuals, voicing their displeasure with her views and (grossly opportunistic and cynical) persona.

Voicing displeasure is free speech.   Throwing things is assault.    The ones who threw stuff should face the consequences.   They won't,  just more of the 2 track Just Us system on display.

Charlottesville gets no support. Antifa does. Same as those who drive through repub tents and smashing those who wear red hats. Or have the audacity to dine out.

Dayton, DC.

Aren't all the people who committed those acts jailed or dead?  You think assault is an allowable part of discourse?

I'm wondering if Bruce will answer this question. 

From searching around the various media outlets, the story I'm hearing from progs is that assaulting someone you think is a fascist is the CORRECT thing to do.    Of course they struggle for a definition of fascism. 

It's not hard to extrapolate.   They call anyone who disagrees with them a fascist, they believe its ok to assault fascist, they want to disarm people they believe to be fascist.   I think I see a problem here.
