By now our readers have surely become familiar with the story of Dr. Jack Cassell, the urologist in Mt. Dora, Florida who put a sign on the front door of his practice which advised Obama voters to seek care elsewhere. If not, here’s a local news report giving a brief summary of the situation:
Cassell is “pushing the limit” of his ethical obligations as a doctor, according to University of Florida bioethicist William Allen, since he is saying he won’t turn patients away. There is no law against a doctor discriminating against a certain political point of view in deciding which patients to treat anyway, as a spokeswoman for the Florida Department of Health pointed out Friday.
But little things like facts never get in the way of Congressman Alan Grayson (D-F’ing Retard), who is now attempting to get Cassell prosecuted for, er, something. Grayson says Cassell is violating the Hippocratic Oath, and has his staff looking into licensing boards which might be tattled to.
The Congressman’s attempt to attack Dr. Cassell’s right to contract with whoever he wishes for his own services was so off-the-wall that even CNN’s Anderson Cooper couldn’t let it go unchallenged:
You’ll notice, of course, that the first thing out of Grayson’s mouth is that Cassell is a racist because black people overwhelmingly voted for Obama in Mt. Dora, and as such by stating his preference not to treat Obama voters Cassell is discriminating based on race. This, of course, is of a piece with the unfounded and disgusting charges of racism emanating from every corner of the Democrat Party and their media minions aimed at Obamacare opponents in the past two weeks.
Of course, Grayson’s asinine remarks and abuse of his Congressional seat are by now legion and hardly news. This isn’t the first time he’s attempted to prosecute American citizens with whom he disagrees – Grayson also attempted to direct Attorney General Eric Holder to “fine and imprison” the purveyors of MyCongressmanIsNuts.com, a site opposing his left-wing views.
