What's in a name? A lot if it's Social Justice Warrior, aka, SJW, hypocrite, numskull, paid "volunteer," thin-skinned moron and over-privileged whiner --- for starters.
Tuesday on The Glenn Beck Program, Doc and Skip from The Morning Blaze filled in for Glenn with a few choice words of their own on the hypocrisy of these so-called "warriors."
"You're a social justice warrior? Listen, numskulls, you might be giving yourself just a little bit too much credit. And by that, you're definitely giving yourself too much credit," Doc said.
Doc was shocked at their over-inflated sense of self-importance --- and ticked off at their ignorance.
"It's just amazing to me that these people have the audacity to bitch in America about all of the inequalities between races, religions, genders. They go off on all this stuff. Meanwhile, America may be the best place in the world as far as equality between races, genders, religions, whatever," Doc said.
While America is up in arms about who can use what bathroom based on gender identity, other parts of the world are throwing gay men from buildings and stoning women to death.
"There are headlines every day about the horrible things that happen around the world, not just to Christians, but to Muslims," Doc said. "ISIS is killing Muslims, right? You're not Muslim enough. What about the way women are treated in parts of the world? And you social justice warriors have the audacity to tell me I'm not doing enough? Like the notion of, well, we're so biased in America."
Based on the issue of race alone, America is way ahead of the curve. Doc noted the opening ceremonies for the 2012 Olympics, in which each country was represented by their dominant race --- Chinese for China, Africans for Nigeria --- while the U.S. was represented by a rainbow of color.
"It gets to the point of saying that we're not enough of a melting pot... I mean, are we not going to be happy in America until there is a perfectly equal distribution --- I mean, 12 percent white, 12 percent black, 12 percent Chinese? Where does it end?" Skip asked.
As a fully functioning contributor of society, real life settles in and there just isn't time to worry about all this nonsense.
"I have so much other stuff going on in my life. And by that, I mean my wife and mother-in-law nagging me to get stuff done. I don't have time for this." Doc said.
It's obvious who does have time to stir up trouble where it doesn't exist in great measure.
"I guess these social justice warriors fancy themselves as a warrior. It's almost to the point --- what are they, like superheroes or something?" Dock said.
No, just self-identified "warriors" with a skewed sense of reality and an overabundant amount of time on their hands.

DOC: Doc and Skip in for Glenn today. We're regularly heard on TheBlaze Radio Network. For more information on us, you can go to theblaze.com/Doc. That's TheBlaze.com/Doc.
We're talking about social justice warriors. And the failure of not only name, but of attitude. Is this the big progressive movement right now on college campuses. All across -- the little movements, whatever they are. Whether it's Black Lives Matter. Whatever they call themselves. Social justice warriors. SJWs.
And it's just amazing to me that these people have the audacity to bitch in America about all of the inequalities between races, religions, genders. They go off on all these stuff. Meanwhile, America may be the best place in the world as far as equality between races, genders, religions, whatever. I mean, we're at least in the top, would you agree?
SKIP: No, truly. We're having a big fight in America about what bathroom you can use based off what you identify with. When tonight, today, there's going to be a gay person thrown off a building in the Middle East. There's going to be a woman who is stoned to death for looking at somebody that she shouldn't have been looking at.
DOC: So, Skip, even if they believe -- these knuckleheads -- these social justice warriors believe that they have to do more -- America has to do more. Okay. Even if you believe that, and we do more, how much of a change is that? Very incremental change right now. Versus, hey, we're social justice warriors, and we got Iran to stop throwing people off the roofs if they're gay. That's a pretty big change, right? That's like -- Skip, you want to lose weight, and you lose, you know, 4 or 5 pounds. You know, you trim up a little bit. But you have the guy that's, hey, Jerry Springer, come rescue me. Cut the wall out of my house and get me out because I'm 700 pounds. Right? He loses 500 pounds. That's more of a significant change.
SKIP: That's going to have a bigger net swing with the pendulum of fairness or equality.
DOC: Right. Or health, in that case.
SKIP: Or health. Exactly. But, no, they want to come over here and say that America is filled with bigots because there are some people that are concerned about somebody who will take a loophole in a law about a bathroom to be a pervert.
DOC: There are headlines every day about the horrible things that happen around the world, not just to Christians, but to Muslims. ISIS is killing Muslims, right? You're not Muslim enough. You're not doing what we say. They're extremist. In this case, you have a 70-year-old woman who is stripped naked and paraded through the streets after being beaten because a mob went after a bunch of Christian households in Egypt because a -- a Christian man was dating a Muslim woman, or so they believed. And the place went crazy.
Where is the equality there? For the Christian? For the old woman? What about that? What about the way women are treated in parts of the world? And you social justice warrior have the audacity to tell me I'm not doing enough?
Like the notion of, well, we're so biased in America. There's so much racism. Look how divided we are. You know, there's no equality in America among races.
Have you ever looked around at other countries? You know what Chinese people have almost exclusively? Asian people.
SKIP: It's your Olympic analogy that put it perfectly in my mind that blew my mind. In fact, I think it was 2012. We were watching the London Olympics. Opening ceremonies. And you made the brilliant point of, take a look at the Chinese team. It's all Chinese people.
DOC: All Chinese.
SKIP: Okay. The Nigerian team.
DOC: All black.
SKIP: Huh. A bunch of black people. And then you see the American team. And you have this coloring book.
DOC: Melting pot.
SKIP: Tall, short, black, white, Chinese. I mean, any color.
DOC: And we get no credit. We're still labeled the racists by these social justice --
SKIP: Not even that we don't get credit, but the fact that we're still this horrible place.
SKIP: That's worthy --
DOC: Oh, yeah, the unforgivable sin of slavery or whatever.
SKIP: It's amazing.
DOC: How about going after those? You're straining at the gnat and swallowing the camel.
SKIP: It gets to the point of saying that we're not enough of a melting pot. And again, that's the same thing with my previous question about, how much acknowledgment do you have to give to your whiteness or your privilege? How much equality do we need? How much -- I mean, are we not going to be happy in America until there is a perfectly equal distribution of -- I mean, 12 percent white, 12 percent black, 12 percent Chinese? Where does it end?
DOC: No, no, because the pendulum will swing back, and they'll say, in some cases, this minority will be doing better. You're limiting them to 12 percent. That's what they'll end up saying. It will never end, because it's not really about race or gender or religion. It's about control from these people.
I have one more clip from this Portland Community College and their Whiteness History Month. I want you to hear a little bit more of their attitude. Portland Community College.
VOICE: Black or other, we'll always talk about the white guy smile.
Like awkward smile. And it's kind of like, well, what are you supposed to do? I smile at everybody, but then -- so now I'm conscious about that, when I do the white guy smile.
SKIP: The white guy smile. This is what she's going to bring up. She's saying she's from -- it's a little hard to hear that clip too. She's from a multi-ethnic background too. A mixed race family. And they're always wondering too about how they should be able to react like when you see a black person on the street, when you try to cross a street, if that's going to --
DOC: How do you react when you see -- oh, my stars, a Negro. Like from Blast From the Past. You know how you react? You don't. It's a non-issue. Black, white, Asian on the street, it doesn't matter.
SKIP: But coming out and saying she has to be concerned that she's giving the white guy smile. You know, it's not a sincere. Oh, I'm smiling because I'm supposed to smile. No, I don't have a problem with you being black or any other ethnicity. But I'm white, and I want to make sure that I'm not giving that white guy smile. Because I'm concerned with my white fragility as well.
DOC: Unbelievable. You know what this is, I think this is people that have that white guilt. It's playing on them. It's not me. But they want to extend it to all people. They don't want to be the one that is thinking to themselves, oh, I have to offer this uncomfortable white person smile or whatever. When the rest of us are like, okay, I got crap to do. I have to do this when I get home. I got to whatever. Oh, the wife is texting me. What did I screw up now? That's what I'm going through in my day.
SKIP: Beyond that, I don't deal with any white guilt or anything. I don't care about race.
DOC: I have so much other stuff going on in my life. And by that, I mean my wife and mother-in-law nagging me to get stuff done. I don't have time for this. All day, it's either checking stuff off the list or nagging me for this. I'm cutting strawberries the wrong way. Really? Seriously? This is the type of stuff -- yeah, cutting strawberries the wrong way. That was the one a couple weeks ago. How do you cut strawberries the wrong way? Anyway, that's what I have going on. I'm not worried about, oh, there's a black person. No, it's just, hey, there's a person. I guess these social justice warriors fancy themselves as a warrior -- it's almost to the point -- what are they, like superheroes or something? Is that what it is?
VOICE: In the dead of night, a lonely telephone rings, deep within the lair of solitude. In his parent's basement.
VOICE: Don't judge me, I'm paying off my student loans.
VOICE: When you're at the end of your rope, who is on the other end of the line?
VOICE: Social Justice Warrior here.
VOICE: Social Justice Warrior. The mild-mannered, politically correct, not offensive, progressive superhero.
VOICE: That's me.
VOICE: Called upon by the oppressed to fight social injustice, income inequality, and occasionally scurvy. Social justice warrior, defender of progressive enlightenment. #Socialjusticewarrior.
VOICE: Together with my social justice league superheroes, The Free Lantern, Tax Man and Robin, Hermaphroditey, and Irony Man.
VOICE: Tune in next time when we hear Social Justice Warrior say...
VOICE: Feel the Bern, baby.
VOICE: Only on the Doc Thompson show.
