The Patriot Post® · A Racist Psychiatrist Outs Herself at Yale

By Douglas Andrews ·

Sometimes, a story is best driven home by considering its converse. In this case, that would be a lecture delivered at, say, Liberty University, whose title is “The Psychopathic Problem of the Black Mind,” and whose material includes little gems such as, “Black people make my blood boil,” and this:

“I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any black person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f—ing favor. … We keep forgetting that directly talking [with blacks] about race is a waste of our breath. We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain’t gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain.”

Of course, no such lecture exists, and no such sicko ever delivered it. So vile and hateful are the musings that they don’t even pass the giggle test. But swap out the three instances of the word “black” for the word “white,” and you’ve got the verbatim rantings of an unhinged New York-based psychiatrist named Aruna Khilanani, who was recently invited to unburden herself in front of impressionable young minds at the Yale School of Medicine.

Your tuition dollars at work. If you’re an idiot.

Just when we think the Left can’t possibly stoop any lower, can’t possibly debase our institutions any more thoroughly, they tell us to hold their Pinot Grigio.

Bari Weiss, the free-thinking, truth-telling, classically liberal journalist who resigned in disgust from The New York Times nearly a year ago, has unearthed and collected the components of Dr. Khilanani’s April lecture on her blog: the audio recording of the lecture, the poster that advertised the event, and a lengthy interview by Katie Herzog of Khilanani, for masochists who haven’t yet had their fill of her vile racist garbage.

It’s hard to believe that someone who’s so clearly disturbed is licensed to prescribe antidepressants, mood stabilizers, and other powerful medications to actual afflicted humans. And one wonders what sorts of thoughts the Bad Doctor shares with her patients. One even wonders whether this might be part of a radical new approach to psychiatry — one designed to make one’s patients believe they aren’t nearly as disturbed as they think they are. Might they all end up leaving Dr. Khilanani’s office thinking, Who’s shrinking whom?“

The Yale School of Medicine did ultimately issue a statement about their invited guest, but only after some faculty members (to their credit) expressed their concerns. "In deciding whether to post the video,” the school wrote, “we weighed our grave concern about the extreme hostility, imagery of violence, and profanity expressed by the speaker against our commitment to freedom of expression. We ultimately decided to post the video with access limited to those who could have attended the talk — the members of the Yale community.”

Given that our nation’s most prestigious universities have become so bizarre, so leftist, and so utterly out-of-touch with Sane America, is it any wonder that prospective employers are intentionally averting their gaze from job applicants with Ivy League credentials? In an exquisitely timed Wall Street Journal op-ed titled “Why I Stopped Hiring Ivy League Graduates,” R.R. Reno, editor of First Things, writes, “A decade ago I relished the opportunity to employ talented graduates of Princeton, Yale, Harvard and the rest. Today? Not so much. … I have no doubt that Ivy League universities attract smart, talented and ambitious kids. But do these institutions add value? My answer is increasingly negative. Dysfunctional kids are coddled and encouraged to nurture grievances, while normal kids are attacked and educationally abused.”

Think about it: Would you want to work with someone who’s spent the past four years or more being fed a steady diet of the likes of Dr. Aruna Khilanani?
