Found online:
Huge numbers of our population believe in a complete alternate reality. Alternate facts as it were.

But just as intensely as I believe they are deluded, they think I am the one who is deluded. So how can I be confident in my perception? Here's a tip:

I have found that in times of political confusion, particularly when emotions are running high and creating tunnel vision, THE PRESENCE OF NAZIS can be an extremely helpful indicator.

If I am attending a local demonstration or event and I see Nazis…neo-Nazis, casual Nazis, 2/x
master race Nazis, or the latest-whatever-uber-mythology-Nazis, I figure out which side they are on.

And if they are on my side of the demonstration? I am on the wrong side.

It is tough to argue moral equivalence when I am standing next to a Nazi. 3/
Look right. Is there a guy wearing a 6MWE (6 million wasn’t enough) t-shirt? I am on the wrong side. Look to my left. If that guy is wearing a Camp Auschwitz t-shirt? Wrong side.

Are speakers being applauded for referring to things that Hitler got right? Wrong side. 4/x
Team-spirit face paint and hat with animal horns? This is actually an unclear indicator that could mean anything, but safest to keep my distance from that guy anyway, even at a football game.
However, I can always, always, always rely on the presence of Nazis as a guiding light through a fog of disinformation.
Some things are relative, and politics can absolutely have its opposing sides and grey areas.
But evil and good are absolute. As are the lessons of history.
So, just look for the Nazis, and make your own decisions.

Dearest trolls of the interwebs. . If you post online on your page or in a comments section and tell people the vaccine:
1. Will alter your genetic code
2. Can cause infertility
3. Is more dangerous than COVID

4. Will not help because , flu, or something, without the basic understanding of antigenic drift/shift and how that affects the search for the vaccine.
5. That this technology was just invented and cannot be trusted.

6. That you have done your “research”, when you know good and damn well that your bullshit research consists of message boards, Facebook memes and YouTube videos...

College 2020. My daughter went to school, moved into sorority house. Next day, many girls go to frat party (not my kid). Within 4-5 days she has to quarantine back here. Within 3-4 more days, her whole house is on quarantine. 1/
She is banned from campus due to contacts. We move her into an apt off campus with 3 other negative friends. Finally she gets to go back to campus for her ONE in person class. Day 1 AFTER class, a kid walks up to the prof and tells him that she has been feeling poorly. 2/
She has a headache, fatigue and has lost her sense of smell/taste. And oh- all her roommates have the same. Professor was like 👀. Of course she was at the closest desk to my kid. And yes, she tested positive. So now my daughter awaits her second ban from campus. 3/

it is unfortunate that easy to say slogans can wipe out an entire movement. “Defund the police” does not mean “eliminate the police”, but unfortunately, it can be used as a weapon against reform since the vast majority Americans don’t read beyond slogans and headlines.
I wish it was “re-think the police”, “re-imagine the police” or something like that.
I see police’s problems much like the problems nationwide in emergency medicine since EMTALA made emergency departments nationwide the dumping ground for all of society’s ills.
I’ve always identified with cops more than even other doctors, because i see the same frustrations with our jobs and our “clients”. Let me explain-
Both of our professions are trained in a particular skill set. Mine is identifying and stabilizing immediate life threats.

Ladies and gentlemen of the Twitterverse. I am an emergency physician. COVID has not hit where I live yet, but it is coming. Because of people needlessly hoarding N-95 masks, my ER has 2 boxes, with no estimate as to refill date. I will be literally covered in virus. 1/
We are the only ER in a small city. The virus is highly transmissible. If my partners and I go down, we will be unable to care for patients for 2 weeks. There is no backup. There is no plan to be made to replace us if more than 1 go down at a time. 2/
Care of heart attacks, delayed. Care of your momma’s pneumonia,delayed. People will suffer, I will have 2 weeks off with a bad cold, unable to help. Give us our fucking PPE back. If you’ve hoarded masks, donate them to your local ER. They will not help you. 3/

I’ve been to war, twice. Iraq in ‘09 and Afghanistan in 2011. I am just a fucking ER doc. But it was there, in the deserts far,far from home, that I made my bones as a newly board certified ER doc. It is around that time, I think that I lost my capacity to feel joy.
Being in war is a strange place. As an ER doc, I wasn’t out kicking doors or taking small arms fire. I was back in base at the level 1 trauma center, waiting for the wounded to pour in. As far as safety went, I was about as safe as you can get there.
Safety is relative. Because we were frequent targets of mortar fire in Iraq, mostly rockets in Afghanistan. My base in Iraq got shelled so often, it was dubbed Mortaritaville. In fact 1 missed me and my buddy by just a couple of minutes of us standing right where they landed.
