A Yale psychiatry professor who has concluded from afar that President Trump is mentally ill, insisting he and his supporters should be locked up, now suggests Trump-supporting parts of the nation should be completely demolished.
Evoking the Allies' leveling of Dresden, Germany, in World War II, Bandy X. Lee says leveling major cites may be the only way to remove the "spell" Trump has cast on his backers.
In a thread on Twitter, Lee recalled that a reporter related to her a conversation with his grandfather, who had fled Nazi Germany, regarding the bombing of Dresden.
"He said I remember this well that it was a necessity, because nothing short of the sight of SEEING THEIR CITIES LEVELED would have broken the spell," Lee wrote. "The German public, he said, was not open to reason. They could not be persuaded to abandon Hitler."

These people need to be laughed off the face of the planet.
Psychopath of a psychiatry professor. Fits in at Yale.
Bringbit, soy boi
Someone please post any disparaging graphics on this.
We know why she isn’t reprimanded by her “order”, because almost all of them are as mentally ill as she is.
Another psychiatrist who is mentally ill. Gee that’s surprising.
Talk about someone being mentally ill,this woman is it.....
Defund academia. Le them speak on their own dime.
“Professor”, “University”....nough said.
If she was honest she would just say, “We need to pack all the Trump supporters on trains and send them somewhere to be gassed.”
“Levelling the cities”? Great idea, let’s start with all the leftist s&^t-holes New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Detroit, Houston, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, San JOSE, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Atlanta, Miami, Richmond, D.C., Boston; these are the ones I can think of offhand, all misgoverned by democrats for decades!
Didn’t we already have a “Dresden” this summer in Portland, Seattle, Philly, Minneapolis, D.C., etc., etc.?
You got it.
“A Yale psychiatry professor who has concluded from afar that President Trump is mentally ill, insisting he and his supporters should be locked up”
Just like in the old soviet union where they tossed and locked people up in the mental institutions for the crime of daring to think differently from the communists.
I can't imagine the reaction if a Biden government actually leveled a major US city. I suspect the reaction would be less like Dresden and more like Pearl Harbor.
After openly diagnosing Trump in multiple interviews, Dr. Lee has been accused of violating the Goldwater Rule, in which the American Psychiatric Association (APA) declared it unethical for a psychiatrist to offer a professional opinion on a public figure for whom they have neither given a face-to-face examination nor received legal consent to disclose said patients medical information, according to the Los Angeles Times.
In what is widely known as the Goldwater Rule, the APA declared it unethical for a psychiatrist to offer a professional opinion on a public figure unless he or she has conducted an examination and has been granted proper authorization for such a statement.
The Goldwater Rule was established during the Cold War after 1,189 psychiatrists declared Republican Senator and presidential candidate Barry Goldwater psychologically unfit to be president in a successful bid to ruin his campaign. Goldwater won his lawsuit against Fact Magazine for organizing and publishing the poll of psychiatrists. Just as Dr. Lee is leading a nearly identical movement against Trump and published a book claiming that hundreds of mental health experts agree with her, she could also very easily be sued for violating the same ethical rule.
Disturbingly, Dr. Lee is citing her alleged duty to warn the people in a pathetic effort to dispel condemnation for her ethics violation. However, the Yale doctor is playing with fire, considering that the man shes unethically and unprofessionally diagnosing is not only the most powerful leader in the world but a savvy businessman with a lifetime of experience in the courtroom.
However, the coup-de-grâce to Dr. Lees credibility was delivered when she told Newsweek in a disturbingly mentally deranged rant that she believes Trump is going to wipe out all of humanity.
If it were possible, Dr. Bandy Lee said, we would be declaring a public health emergency that needs 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.
Expectedly, when asked to give examples that supported her unofficial diagnosis of Trumps mental health, Dr. Lee regurgitated unfounded liberal rhetoric and propaganda.
What Lee would say is that a history of violence like Trumps verbal aggressiveness, history of boasting about sexual assault, history of inciting violence at his rallies, and history of endorsing violence in his key public speeches is the best predictor of future violence. He has also shown an attraction to violence and powerful weapons, she said, including nuclear weapons. He has also repeatedly taunted a hostile nation.
Additionally, Dr. Jeffrey Lieberman, former president of the APA, not only denounced Dr. Lees book as a compilation of tawdry, indulgent, fatuous tabloid psychiatry but obliterated her claim of having a duty to warn, adding that medical professionals have repeatedly been used throughout history for corrupt political agendas.
In a letter to the editors of the New England Journal of Medicine, Lieberman says he believes Lee, [Dr. Claire] Pouncey, and the rest are acting in good faith and are convinced they are fulfilling a moral obligation. But the history of psychiatry is littered with examples of mental health professionals being exploited for political purposes, he wrote, citing doctors who gave cover to Nazi eugenics policies and those who helped confine dissidents to mental hospitals in the Peoples Republic of China.
Although moral and civic imperatives justify citizens speaking out against injustices of government and its leaders, that does not mean that psychiatrists can use their medical credentials to brand elected officials with neuropsychiatric diagnoses without sufficient evidence and appropriate circumstances, he wrote. To do so undermines the professions integrity and credibility.
Disturbingly, Dr. Lees flagrant overreach doesnt end there. In April 2017, she exposed her own political bias during an interview with New York Magazine, charging that Trump supporters have been essentially brainwashed by the mentally unfit president.
Is it time to start a Liberal Politicians & Celebrities Death Pool yet? Or do we wait until tonight?
I’m fine with that too. Just make sure to save cultural treasures like the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, the Mall in Washington D.C. etc.
This “shrink” doesn’t seem to think America will fight back.
Well, if byeDUHn/hVrris win they’ll all be working for free right?
