“This” was being summarily fired, escorted, and deposited from the premises like so much refuse by security guards at University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) Health.
That’s the Westwood hospital where Dr. Christopher B. Rake worked until Tuesday as an anesthesiologist.
It’s unclear what Dr. Rake is now. Is he fired? On unpaid leave? What’s clear is that the anesthesiologist can’t go to work. All because he refused a forced medical procedure — a shot — that he didn’t want, didn’t think was right, and didn’t believe he needed. The mandate was imposed on him by bureaucrats who know less about medicine than he does.
He was “escorted” from the hospital by three security guards, one of whom warned him, “don’t come near me,” as Rake recorded his own ouster.
Rake may be starting a new, unwanted career as the face of anti-COVID-mandate Americans – perhaps millions of them – who will lose or already have lost their jobs, careers, and livelihoods because of Joe Biden’s and Democrat governors’ orders to get shot up or lose everything.
Dr. Rake said he knew the cost and was willing to pay it – for freedom.
This is what happens when you stand up for freedom and when you show up to work, willing to work, despite being unvaccinated, and this is the price you have to pay sometimes. But what they don’t realize is that I’m willing to lose everything — job, paycheck, freedom, even my life for this cause.
It could be a tragic end to a career at one of the California’s premier medical facilities.
UCLA anesthesiologist Dr. Chris Rake, a COVID-19 vaccine mandate opponent, was escorted out of the UCLA medical plaza yesterday and placed on unpaid administrative leave for refusing to get vaccinated or request an exemption.
