In a shocking move, one of the darkest days in Yale’s history, the University has fired Dr. Bandy Lee, the intrepid psychiatrist whose heroic efforts to expose what a menace Donald Trump is to our country ran afoul of the sclerotic, arbitrary American Psychiatric Association’s “Goldwater Rule.”
Dr. Lee was a professor of psychiatry in the Yale Medical School.
David Cay Johnston at DC Report/Raw Story weighs in on the attempted silencing of one of Yale’s most admirable defenders of the public interest.
And this comes AFTER Trump has caused the death of hundreds of thousands of Americans.
Yale’s rejection of social responsibility and participation is a caricature of how an educational institution should function. There could be no clearer indication of the right-wing Establishment tilt of Yale’s governance than this blatant act of political pandering.
