‘This isn't racist at all’: Western Washington University considers number of white students on campus a ‘failure’

Earlier this week, the communications and marketing department at Western Washington University sent out a school-wide questionnaire that asked recipients to consider: “How do we make sure that in future years ‘we are not as white as we are today?’” Having grown up on the “mean streets” of 22nd Avenue in Bellingham, Washington, Glenn offered the university a couple of tips on radio this morning.

“Now, this is from my own hometown of Bellingham, Washington – one of the whitest, white, whitey, white places in America. I mean I lived on the mean street of 22nd Avenue,” Glenn joked on radio this morning. “It was hard. Wherever you go, there are whites. Occasionally there are some Asians, and occasionally there are some Hispanics… And Western Washington University is the big university that was just about 10 blocks up the street. And they have decided that they want fewer white people attending. I want you to know: This isn't racist at all.”

According to Campus Reform, the “Six Questions on the Future of Western” questionnaire was disseminated through the WWU marketing department's daily newsletter Western Today. It came on the heels “of admonishments given in multiple convocation addresses by WWU President Bruce Shepard for the university’s ‘failure’ to be less white.”

In a January blog post, Shepard explained that if the school is “as white in ten years as we are today,” the university “will have failed as a university”

“Finally somebody says it,” Stu quipped.

Glenn was in a particularly magnanimous mood this morning, and he offered a surefire way to correct the school’s diversity problem.

“If I may, I'd like to suggest that the way to make your university less white [is] just fire all the administration and all of the professors that are white. You do that, and you could change the balance of what's happening on that campus,” Glenn explained. “Fire all the white people that work there because I know you believe in it so much that you would give your job up to be able to have justice and equality.”

It’s safe to say WWU probably won’t be heeding that advice anytime soon. But, then again, what does he know?

“So that's just also tip from me,” Glenn concluded. “You know, but I came from the mean street of 22nd Avenue, so what do I know.”

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
