Ten million people are locked down at the whim of a very well paid SJW 'doctor'
Barbara Ferrer, or "Dr. Barbara Ferrer," as she likes to be called, is the director of the Los Angeles County Public Health Department. In this role, she dictates public policy on the endless lockdown that is destroying millions of lives in a city that's in a perpetual state of decay.
You'd think that, at the very least, she'd be a medical doctor. But she's not. Per a Los Angeles Times article, at one point in her life, she thought about becoming a doctor, so I guess that's supposed to count.
In any case, Ferrer is a doctor just as Jill Biden, doctorate in Education (Ed.D) is a doctor. Who can forget when Whoopi Goldberg raved about the (non) fact that Jill was "a hell of a doctor," "an amazing doctor" as the lemming-filled audience clapped along?
Ferrer has racked up a lot of useless degrees in fields of study such as her claim to be a doctor — a Ph.D. in social welfare from the notorious incubator of leftists, Brandeis University. Via USC:
Dr. Ferrer received her Ph.D. in Social Welfare from Brandeis University, a Master of Arts in Public Health from Boston University, a Master of Arts in Education from the University of Massachusetts, Boston, and a Bachelor of Arts in Community Studies from the University of California, Santa Cruz.
Say what?! Not only do those degrees sound irrelevant to her current job, but they sound irrelevant to work of any kind.
Of course, the Los Angeles Times doesn't see it that way. The reporters there think she's quite a star in the health field while gushing over her social justice credentials, including being an "activist" and a "community organizer." It's probably icing on the leftist cake that she was also born in Puerto Rico.
Her track record as the director of public health for Los Angeles has been shoddy. She is exercising dictatorial power over the lives of ten million residents of L.A. County, and is not yet ready to tell them when their agony will end.
Jennifer van Laar of Red State:
Los Angeles County Director of Public Health Dr. Barbara Ferrer made news Tuesday when she told the county's board of Supervisors that the "Safer at Home" order would almost certainly be extended for three more months when it expired May 15. Outrage ensued, and the Board of Supervisors and Ferrer herself walked back those comments. Turns out that walk-back was just a giant "psych!" because Ferrer announced the new order Wednesday — one with no expiration date. But, give her credit for being literal — it wasn't a three-month extension.
No matter. She's got all the credentials a leftist needs to land a peach job. Did I mention she earns more than half a million dollars a year to run the city farther into the ground?
And it is this unqualified, idiotic, well paid social justice warrior who is in charge of steering the Los Angeles lockdown toward infinity.
