A screenshot was sent to me of a social media post by a CEO whose friend was having heart surgery. It read: “I talked to him about three hours before his surgery and his only concern was that he hoped his surgeon wasn’t hired to fill a racial or gender quota.” This sentiment crystallizes a dilemma currently facing the profession of surgery.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives in surgery are ubiquitous. DEI has been embraced by innumerable departments of surgery and societies of surgeons as well as healthcare institutions. Vice chairs of DEI have been appointed, and DEI committees have been created within surgical departments, adding to a costly DEI bureaucracy already established in hospitals and universities.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
