"Dialogue in academia" Update

Yale Professor Says Trump Could Cause ‘Extinction of the Human Species’

THOMAS D. WILLIAMS, PH.D.8
Jan 2018

Yale professor and clinical psychiatrist Dr. Bandy X. Lee has warned that President Donald Trump may bring about the “extinction of the human species” because of his mental instability.

Lee, who has briefed members of congress on the president’s psychological state, insisted that her extreme prediction was “not hyperbole” but “reality.”

Dr. Lee said told Newsweek that the situation is so grave that “a public health emergency” should be declared that would need to be “responded to as quickly as possible.”

“As more time passes, we come closer to the greatest risk of danger, one that could even mean the extinction of the human species,” she said. “This is not hyperbole. This is the reality.”

After a series of tweets from Trump that appeared to threaten North Korea with nuclear war,

Lee was one of the hundreds of self-described mental health experts who issued a statement calling the President’s mental health into question after he responded to a challenge from North Korean Leader Kim Jong-Un.

“North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the ‘Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times,’” Trump tweeted Tuesday. “Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!

Lee, who has been preparing students at Yale Law School to become asylum attorneys since 2003, edited a book of 27 essays on the president’s mental state, The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump, which was published in October. The authors assert that Trump’s mental state “presents a clear and present danger to our nation,” the Amazon website states.

According to the American Psychiatric Association’s Goldwater Rule, members may not comment on the psychological health of someone they haven’t actually examined, but Lee said she doesn’t believe that her evaluation of the President’s mental health violates the rule.

Trump has shown “an attraction to violence and powerful weapons,” Lee said. “He has also repeatedly taunted a hostile nation.”

Lee said that Trump’s speech patterns also say something about the state of the President’s mental health.

“He cannot seem to finish sentences, he derails from his line of thinking, he has loose associations and he jumps from one topic or another,” she said, which could indicate a psychiatric or medical condition.

Following on Trump’s assertions on social media of his mental stability and intelligence, Lee said that deflecting or projecting “are often concerning signs,” and seemed to suggest that Trump could even be a candidate for forcible commitment.

“Usually, as someone becomes mentally impaired, they lose the ability to consider the possibility that something could be wrong,” she said. “That’s why forcible commitment is permitted—because it is their illness speaking, not their own healthy decision making.”

Lee said that a psychological “capacity examination” should be performed on the President as soon as possible,” because of the high stakes involved.

it is pitiful that libass believes these clowns.
Sometimes I think it's a shame,
When I get feelin' better when I'm feelin' no pain

--I'm not sure he does and, in fact I'll give him the benefit pf the doubt that he doesn't unless or until he says otherwise. The scary thing here is that this is a proclaimed professional academician (from Yale no less) making these statements in all sincerity. This is the state of academia today - and we're supposed to sit idly by and pretend that it is authentic and to be taken seriously.

I knew this had to be a Brietbart exclusive.. what's the deal with Bannon over there, and is Trump Jr a traitor or not, what's Brietbart's take?
So let's see how fucking brilliant I truly am.
Clinton will not ever be President of the United States.

Dr. Lee told Newsweek that the situation is so grave that “a public health emergency” should be declared that would need to be “responded to as quickly as possible.”

what's the deal with Bannon over there,
--Seems to be on his way out.

--Identifying someone who hasn't been found guilty of treason as a "traitor" is fake news which is the domain of the mainstream media.

There is no charge called "traitor" so no one will be found guilty of it.   What we will see are charges of conspiracy against the United States.   Trump's campaign manager, Paul Manafort, has already been charged with that.   Others will too, probably including Trump Jr.

--That's right. A traitor is someone who is found guilty of the charge of treason.

Quote
so no one will be found guilty of it.

--That is correct. If anyone is found guilty of treason however, that person will be accurately described as a traitor. Until such a time, legitimate news outlets have no business assigning the label to anyone. The mainstream media, on the other hand, will do whatever they want.
