Once again, the Ayn Rand Institute (ARI) gets it wrong.
On April 27, 2022, the Ayn Rand Institute published an article by Ben Bayer titled “If You’re a Doctor or Nurse, Don’t Feel Guilty for Quitting.” The author expresses sympathy for the health care workers who have the desire to quit due to stress-related problems during the COVID pandemic. Staffing shortages and inadequate resources for treatment are mentioned as problems, but the majority of the blame is put on…wait for it…the unvaccinated.
Bayer asks doctors and nurses how much of their stress is due to their anger toward being disrespected by patients. Which patients? He says: These were mostly the unvaccinated patients who were belligerent and uncompliant with doctors’ medical instructions. Some demanded treatments with no known basis[.] … Between their behavior and the fact that they could have avoided hospitalization by getting vaccinated, it must have been hard to feel compassion for them. He goes on to reassure them that their anger is justified at the ungrateful, disrespectful, irrational patients because they didn’t listen to the expertise of their doctors and nurses. Not only is their anger justified, but they actually have good reason to feel contempt for their unvaccinated patients, who treat them like “chattel.”
The organization based on the philosophy of Ayn Rand must have forgotten that knowledge is founded in reality. Have they not noticed that the so-called “vaccines” do not prevent everyone from getting COVID? Have they not read about the serious vaccine injuries and/or deaths? It isn’t true that the unvaccinated had no known basis for the alternate treatments they wanted. Does the ARI know nothing about ivermectin and that it was on the approved list of treatments ? There were staffing shortages way before the vaccine in 2020. Then the CDC made it worse when […]
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
