Bandy X. Lee and CDU/CSU psychiatry

Bandy X. Lee, a professor of psychiatry at the Yale University School of Medicine, founded the World Mental Health Coalition after convening a conference at Yale on the president’s mental health. She is the editor of the book “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President” and more recently was joined by psychiatrists at universities around the U.S. in calling for the House of Representatives to convene a panel of mental health experts to weigh in on the president’s impeachment proceedings.

This is a mysterious woman who went on a strange tirade against the President of the United States. Lee has a prominent public presence online including numerous social media profiles.

A Chinese psychiatrist? I am reminded of foreign customs of ear-picking.

Do you hear voices in your head? No? Then you are in denial, and you need to lie down on the couch, and there is a nice lady to pick the earwax out of your ears, so that you may hear them ever so clearly.

Don’t get me wrong. I am not trying to be culturally insensitive or white supremacist. After all, The 19th-century (white) Victorian customs of Sigmund Freud in pre-WWI Austria were every bit as strange. In either case, there’s a lady on the couch, and some bizarre and probably unnecessary “services” are being offered.

This lady holds not only a Doctor of Medicine (Medicinæ Doctor, MD) degree, but a Master of Divinity (MDiv) which entails an advanced level of instruction and knowledge in the Christian religion. There is a strange phenomenon of Christian Bible-thumping on the political left, perhaps better exemplified by certain political parties which have gained an auspicious ascendancy in Europe.

Conspiracy theories of Christian Nazis? Almighty Vice Lord Nation?

Asian triads involved in professional psychiatry? No doubt.
