Pushback: Class action lawsuit against NY’s racial discriminatory COVID policy

No longer exists in New York
New York voids the Civil Rights Act of 1964

The Democratic Party: “Segregation today, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever!”

William Jacobson, the founder of the website Legal Insurrection, has filed a class action lawsuit against New York State’s policy of providing COVID medical treatment not based on health factors but on race.

The suit is specifically against Mary T. Bassett, the Acting Commissioner of the New York Department of Health.

Essentially, Bassett and New York have established the same bigoted policies that have been instituted in states like Texas and Vermont that favor blacks and minorities over whites in determining who should get certain COVID treatments first. Based on the state’s racial criteria, a completely healthy 25-year-old black man would be favored over a 45-year-old white man, even though the latter is at much greater risk of death from COVID.

As stated in the complaint [pdf]:

Using a patient’s skin color or ethnicity as a basis for deciding who should receive lifesaving medical treatment is appalling. And directing medical professionals to award or deny medical care based on immutable characteristics such as skin color, without regard to the actual health condition of the individual who is seeking these antiviral treatments, is nothing more than an attempt to establish a racial hierarchy in the provision of life-saving medicine. Worse still, New York’s racial preferences ignore the obvious race-neutral alternative policy of making antiviral treatments available to patients of any race who can demonstrate risk factors, such as advanced age, obesity, a compromised immune system, or other medical conditions.

The lawsuit specifically names Jacobson as a victim, since New York’s policy would refuse him treatment if he should get the Wuhan flu, simply because he is white and could likely not show any serious medical issues beyond COVID. Because this is a class action suit others who are white and thus denied healthcare by New York for racial reasons can join the suit as well as plaintiffs.

The lawsuit notes that New York’s policy violates the fourteenth amendment to the Constitution (which demands equal treatment before the law), the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (which bans racial and ethnic discrimination), and Obamacare (which also forbids refusing anyone treatment based on their race or ethnicity).

Jacobson is being supported in his lawsuit by American First Legal.

Voters: Please note that New York is controlled entirely by the Democratic Party. Though for decades this party claimed it was a champion against discrimination, we now know that its real agenda was always for creating a racially-bigoted system that would favor minorities. In other words, the Democratic Party has returned to its KKK roots, but instead of supporting segregation against blacks and other minorities, it now supports segregation against whites.

It is time to throw these racist and bigoted Democratic Party bums out of power, everywhere.

Conscious Choice cover

Now available in hardback and paperback as well as ebook!


From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.


“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.


All editions are available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and all book vendors, with the ebook priced at $5.99 before discount. The ebook can also be purchased direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit, in which case you don't support the big tech companies and I get a bigger cut much sooner.

    Can we call the leftist who instituted this policy…..RACISTS!!!!

    The difference between them and me, is that I have the policy to point at. I bring receipts. I have truth.

    They call everything and everyone that oppose them racists. They are liars.

    Under the leadership of the now Leftist agenda driven Democrat party machine and their installed facade president Joe Biden and his second in command, Kammy Harris what exactly do we have?

    1. First thing Joe does, opens the Southern borders and incentivizes over 2 million illegals to come to America. (Why did he do that? Do you know?)
    2. Joe shut down the Keystone pipeline. (Joe purposefully weakens America’s ability to produce energy)
    3. Joe approves the Russian Nord Stream 2 pipeline to Germany. (Joe empowers and enriches Russia)
    3. Joe plans to send American troops to Ukraine to secure their border. (Hello)
    4. Counterintuitive government policies have caused growing inflation and massive increases in the cost of energy and food.
    5. Joe and the Democrats attempt to mandate an experimental “vaccine” for most Americans, or you lose your job.
    6. No person crossing the border illegally is either checked for Covid or is mandated to be “Vaccinated” and is flown into the country.
    7. Because of perceived incompetence and weakness in the White House both Russia and China are positioning to take what they please.
    8. It is clearly established that the president through his son Hunter is compromised financially and has obligations to both China and Russia.
    9. The Democrat leadership and the president pushes constantly that America is fundamentally racist. (Are you fundamentally racist?)
    10. The Democrat leadership and the president are attempting to un Constitutionally Federalize elections in order to control and determine their results.

    The Democrat party machine and Joe are purposefully destroying the America that you know and love. Why do you think that is? Do you think what is going on is in your or your country’s or your family’s best interests?

    You disagree? Tell me all about it.

    And what is Joe best at?–~D

    Mr. Z. refers to something with his picture. Wouldn’t it be better if the Civil Rights Act of 1964 hadn’t existed in the first place? So why worry about whether it will be applied or not?

    Why deal in what does not exist?

    I try to deal in what does exist.
