Oregon health equity official claims ‘urgency is a white supremacy value,’ Gutfeld has some questions

(Video: Fox News)

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld ridiculed an Oregon health equity official for reportedly delaying a scheduled meeting premised on the absurd notion that “urgency is a white supremacy value.”

In the opening monologue on his eponymous show on Wednesday night, Gutfeld reacted to a report published by the libertarian Reason magazine about a manager employed by the Oregon Health Authority, a government agency that coordinates medical care in the state.

“In an email obtained by Reason, Regional Health Equity Coalition Program Manager Danielle Droppers informed the community that a scheduled conversation between OHA officials and relevant members of the public would not take place as planned,” Reason claimed.

In the email, Droppers allegedly wrote, in part, that “We recognize that urgency is a white supremacy value that can get in the way of more intentional and thoughtful work, and we want to attend to this dynamic. Therefore, we will reach out at a later date to reschedule.”

As he began his soliloquy in the video clip embedded above, the host of “Gutfeld!,” a show that often gets better ratings than the late-night, so-called entertainment programming on the alphabet networks, satirically wondered “what’s the hurry?” in delivering his remarks.

Since my show starts on time every night, do I qualify as a Grand Wizard?,” Gutfeld further wondered rhetorically.

“So, what a happy coincidence for a government worker, that it’s racist to do your job, whether it’s holding a scheduled meeting or teaching children math; doing both is racist, so don’t bother. That way, everyone fails, not just government,” the host continued in reference to the work ethic, or lack thereof, in the public sector.  “So it’s no wonder [the Oregon Health Authority] screwed up that state over COVID; it would have been ‘racist’ not to,” he continued.

Gutfeld went on to say that “Now, apparently, this is all part of diversity, inclusion, and equity training materials, D.I.E. for short, which is what any company that promotes this crap will do. But you know what? This is good news for lazy, incompetent workers…Show up late, unprepared, stinking of booze — you’re fighting white supremacy now. Looking back on it, in college I was a regular Rosa Parks…”

Gutfeld decried the “diabolical” nature of the radical, divisive, and ultimately self-defeating ideology that has gained currency in various formats in Oregon and elsewhere. “I mean, what a great way to ruin someone’s career. Tell them all the things that make you successful, also make you a bigot…

“By telling others that good traits are racist, you’re telling them to fail. CNN must have had this plan in place for the last ten years,” Gutfeld quipped about the competing, but failing, news outlet. “But you couldn’t ask for a better way to leapfrog past inept, gullible co-workers plagued by white guilt. You get them all to stay home until they’re tardy, and you win by showing up on time, all while telling minorities, ‘Don’t reach your potential. Oh, you’ll get equity once everybody loses.’

“Of course, for those bureaucrats who aren’t held accountable like Ms. Droppers, their incompetence is expected. Hell, public health bureaucrats can literally cause a pandemic and still not get fired. The only thing they do on time, of course, is collect taxes. So, here’s some questions for Ms. Droppers, whose name is perfect for someone dropping standards for herself. If urgency is a racist value, why don’t we delay your paycheck, for like a few weeks?…

The FNC polemicist then included some real-world implications in his discourse.

“You best hope you don’t end up in the emergency room any time soon. I mean, can there be anything more racist than an emergency? Emergencies demand quick action….”

Gutfeld then playfully implied that death apparently is the only way to escape left-wing racism allegations. “And really, we’d all rather be dead than called racist. And the fact is, isn’t death really the least racist thing ever? Think about it. What do they call you when you die? Late.”

In the article published on Saturday, Reason noted that “Droppers did not immediately respond to a request for comment.”
