Former Trump adviser suing New York state for racialized coronavirus priorities: 'This is racist fascism'

Miller’s organization, America First Legal, is mounting a legal challenge against the state for allegedly favoring non-White patients in the distribution of limited COVID-19 treatments.

The state’s Department of Health released a document in December instructing health care providers to consider race as a risk factor for severe illness when determining eligibility for specific anti-viral treatments that are in short supply, such as monoclonal antibodies and antiviral pills.

NEW YORK’S RACIALIZED CORONAVIRUS POLICIES ARE ILLEGAL: CRITICS

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 reads.

Miller denounced the provision on “塔克·卡尔森今晚,” 说 “American experiment is deadif health care providers can discriminate on the basis of race.

In the context of New York, we are seeing decisions about life and death a medical care being made according to race and skin color,” 米勒说. “If this is allowed to survive, if this policy is allowed to endure, then in a very real sense our Constitution ceases to be the supreme law of the land and instead becomes the relic of a fallen civilization. That’s how big the stakes are in this fight.

If you get to a point in this country where your health care for your loved ones, for your family, your children, your grandparents, will be decided based on what country your ancestors come from, what they look like, what their skin tone is, then the American experiment is dead.

Author and former U.S. Assistant Attorney Andy McCarthy expressed a similar sentiment in a previous interview with Fox News, where he urged the Department of Justice to investigate the legal basis of the memo.
