NY Covid Treatments PRIORITIZED According to RACE!!!

If you are a New York resident, you are now officially in a Democrat-defined caste system organized according to race. New York has announced that it will prioritize non-White people in the rationing out of limited COVID-19 treatments. It is now widely reported that New York's Department of Health has released a document detailing its plan to distribute the treatments, such as mono-clonal antibody treatment and antiviral pills, that will officially make the race of the patient one of the prioritizing factors in the distribution process.
At one level, what's behind all of this is Bumblin' Biden's botching of the distribution of testing kits and treatments. His regime ultimately failed to anticipate the demand for mono-clonal antibody treatments and antiviral pills. Thus the shortages are entirely due to the incompetence of the Bumblin' Biden regime. But now, we have Democrats in New York responding to those shortages in a very particularly Democrat way, and that is through this radical racialization of public policy!
Shockingly the democrats are trying to pass this blatant racism off as science. The memo released by the New York Department of Health spells out the racial component of their policy in what they're trying to pull off as a scientific policy! The policy requires that distribution be based on findings that someone has "a medical condition or other factors that increase their risk for severe illness." And the key here is that among these so-called "other factors" is the "risk factor" of being non-white: 'Non-white race or Hispanic/Latino ethnicity should be considered a risk factor, as longstanding systemic health and social inequities have contributed to an increased risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19.' The memo relies heavily on studies from the CDC, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which see race as a factor in health concerns, "Long-standing systemic health and social inequities have put various groups of people at increased risk of getting sick and dying from COVID-19, including many people from certain racial and ethnic minority groups and people with disabilities."
Now, what they're getting at is that people in minority groups tend to be more susceptible to things like obesity and diabetes. Both of these problems can contribute to an inordinately dire response on their part to Covid, were they to contract it. But as many have noted, what this CDC document and the New York government's memo are doing is conflating two logically distinct categories: health and race! Obesity and diabetes exist apart from the race; theoretically, eliminating a race from the equation doesn't correspond to eliminating those health concerns! Obesity and diabetes exist irrespective of race. Now some races may be more prone to those diseases, but there's no getting around that such diseases exist regardless of any particular race. And so, the apparent logical inference from that is that you prioritize patients with those conditions; you don't prioritize race. You prioritize individual conditions! And the critical point here is that that is the obvious conclusion from the scientific data! But of course, as we all know here, we're not dealing with science; we're dealing with an ideology that has hijacked science! And that, of course, is cultural Marxism!
The Democratic regime in New York is now enforcing an explicitly cultural Marxist notion of a radical racialization of the population. Cultural Marxist norms, by definition, put a priority on racial minorities as supposed objects of systemic racist policies, so implementing policies based on the racial prioritization of minorities is considered the hallmark of enacting social justice.
In this scenario, racial minorities are considered to be more worthy of government-based beneficence than the racial majority. This is precisely because such supposed benevolence compensates for social inequities caused by a supposedly racist political and economic system! And we're seeing this cultural Marxist ideology go from theory to practice in New York state! Now, this policy is, in turn, revealing the radical incoherence of the Democrats; you see, one of the supposedly-societal factors adversely affecting minority communities is that they're more likely to be UN-vaccinated than white communities. And these reports and this memo recognize this. Communities of color, as it were, have higher average UN-vaccinated rates than white communities! And so, this is one of the reasons that's being used to justify placing a priority on non-white populations in the vaccine rationing. However, you probably remember ultra-leftists like the borderline illiterates Jimmy Kimmel and CNN's Don Lemon actually advocating that hospitals refuse to treat unvaccinated patients! Do you remember that? And this, of course, is because both Kimmel and Lemon are bona fide bigots who assumed that the majority of the unvaccinated were dumb knuckle-dragging white folk in who voted for Trump! As it turns out, the policy they're advocating would adversely affect non-white communities! What do you know? It's called leftist incoherence, and it's precisely the kind of incoherence you get when you're motivated by blind bigotry, which is precisely what we have here!
And that leads us to the bigger picture of what's going on in New York. What we see, in many respects, is the far-left transforming right before our very eyes into basically a form of the alt-right. The left is turning into the alt-right! And this is largely because of a larger phenomenon that's been going on for decades now. The French sociologist Michel Maffesoli termed this shift neo-tribalism. Neo-tribalism is the notion that the world is slowly but surely reorganizing around racial and ethnic identities. The basic argument is that with the death of Marxism on the one hand and liberal globalism on the other, both of which have been collapsing now for the last three decades, the world is fracturing. The world is breaking up, and populations are increasingly reorganizing around their own shared identity markers, such as nation, culture, custom, ethnicity, and race. Neotribalism is working itself out in two directions: populations are either moving towards a more culturally assimilated civic nationalism, like what was advocated by president Trump and the MAGA movement or it balkanizes into various ethno-nationalisms, where racial homogeneity becomes the new national organizing factor!
Interestingly, either way, nationalism wins! The left dies, and the two political sides become those who advocate for civic nationalism that prioritizes the nation as a unique unified multi-ethnic race in itself, and those who advocate for ethnonationalism and the increasing balkanization of our nation around racialized definitions of our population! Ironically, New York's covid policy has just taken significant steps towards this reality! In the end, the left will only end up destroying itself, and what replaces it could indeed end up racially balkanizing our nation! Only time will tell!
