Is there anyplace left to hide from politics? The NFL, one of out last refuges, is gone.

At least you don’t need to argue politics when you visit the doctor, right? Right?

Dr. Eugene Gu is a popular progressive political figure on Twitter. What he posted is instructive, and I think predicts an even more bleak future where politics invades the doctor’s office and operating room.

Dr. Gu tweeted an image of himself taking a knee in support of NFL protests dressed in his operating room garb and touting that he was “fight[ing] white supremacy” in his capacity as “an Asian-American doctor.”

The tweet has gone viral with over 40,000 retweets as of this writing.

If you loved how sports have been politicized, you’ll *love* it when your doctor starts berating you.
