California Wants to Legislate an Inquisition For Doctors Who Commit Heresy

It’s so wonderful.

Here’s a professor of epidemiology at Stanford University, School of Medicine warning about a California bill to yank the medical licenses of doctors who don’t think children should be vaxxed against a virus that they almost assuredly won’t suffer ill effects from.  Even if the vaccine has been linked to serious and even deadly side effects in the young.

“According to California Assembly Bill 2098, physicians who deviate from an authorized set of beliefs would do so at risk to their medical license. The bill, written by Assemblyman Evan Low, a Democrat in Silicon Valley, and currently making its way through the California Legislature, is motivated by the idea that practicing doctors are spreading “misinformation” about the risks of Covid, its treatment, and the Covid vaccine. It declares that physicians and surgeons who “disseminate or promote misinformation or disinformation related to COVID-19, including false or misleading information regarding the nature and risks of the virus, its prevention and treatment; and the development, safety, and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines” shall be subject to “disciplinary action,” which could result in the loss of the doctor’s medical license.

The language of the bill itself is intentionally vague about what constitutes “misinformation,” which makes it even more damaging. Doctors, fearing loss of their livelihoods, will need to hew closely to the government line on Covid science and policy, even if that line does not track the scientific evidence. After all, until recently, top government science bureaucrats like Dr. Fauci claimed that the idea that Covid came from a Wuhan laboratory was a conspiracy theory, rather than a valid hypothesis that should be open to discussion. The government’s track record on discerning Covid truths is poor.”

Despite my pity for the innocent inhabitants of California I think this bill is a good thing.  The more dysfunctional places like California and New York become the more aware the rest of the country becomes of how dangerous their delusions are.  And I believe people in a democracy deserve to get exactly what they voted for.  In California that means getting all the Democrat lunacy anyone could imagine.  I would be alright with the court handing down sentences for erring doctors that might include tar and feathering and, if necessary, burning at the stake.

After all the good people of California reiterated their love for Gavin Nuisance at the conclusion of his recall election.  He’s their man.  Give them all they can get.
