Social Justice Warrior 'Numskulls' Give Themselves Too Much Credit

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.

DOC: Yeah.

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.

(inaudible)

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.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Left's latest move — canceling six Dr. Seuss books due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity. And now, school districts are jumping on board after President Joe Biden seems to have dropped Dr. Seuss from the White House's annual "Read Across America Day" proclamation.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn argued that deleting books is the perfect example of fascism, and asked when we as a country will finally realize it.

"They are banning Dr. Seuss books. How much more do you need to see before all of America wakes up? ... This is fascism!" Glenn said. "We don't destroy books. What is wrong with us, America?"

Former Democratic presidential candidate and Hawaii representative Tulsi Gabbard and Glenn Beck don't agree much on policy, but they're in lockstep on principles.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Tulsi spoke with Glenn about one of her last acts in Congress, introducing the "Protect Women's Sports Act," which she says would "strengthen, clarify, and uphold the intent of Title IX to provide a level playing field for girls and women in sports." But since then, the Biden administration has gone in the opposite direction, and has supported allowing biological men to compete in women's sports.

Later this week, former President Trump will attend CPAC and give his first major policy appearance since leaving office. Sources close to the President reveal he will focus on "the future of the Republican Party and the conservative movement."

The future of the GOP is a question that demands real discussion before elections in 2022 and 2024. Right now, I can see three possible answers for how you act:

  1. Those in power and senior positions will ignore the reasons behind Donald Trump winning in 2016. They will be vindicated in their minds because they outlasted him, as they view DC as a job for life. These leaders will go back to business as usual and seek forgiveness from the left, hoping for unity and acceptance in the future.
  2. The second outcome is another section of the party that is understandably very angry over the left's Presidents treatment. They still support and believe in Trump. They think it's time to take off the gloves and treat Biden/the left exactly how they treated Trump.
  3. The few policy positions offered in public will be centered solely around opposing the left. They will also make the case how the left suck, are dangerous, and how you need them in power. The next four years are merely a countdown for Trump to run again and right the wrong of 2020.
  4. The third outcome is very similar to the second, but with one key difference. While they appreciate everything Trump accomplished while in office, they feel it's time to unite behind another candidate.
Question

Which of these three positions will work best for the American people? Which helps built a political base for elections in both 2022 and 2024?

If you seek to help save America, it is critical to do some soul searching. Whether you love or hate him, Donald Trump got 75 million votes and made advancements in key demographics. What did he do well that you can develop further? In what areas was he poor, and how can you improve?

I want to raise six principled points everyone on the right should be forced to consider in the run-up to 2024.

1 - Understanding American Exceptionalism

FACT: America is an exceptional nation. If you read enough of world history, you will find ample evidence that America acted in ways that made it unique and significantly different from other countries in the past and modern times. These reasons must be understood and promoted through the culture and body politic.

One of those reasons is the layout of your Declaration of Independence. If you look around politics today, you will see people on all political sides telling you what they hate, why the other side is the enemy, and how they must be defeated.

In the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson also made that case against the English when he listed 27 grievances against the King. So how is the layout key? It took Jefferson 357 words to get to those grievances. Your Declaration is your mission statement: it tells everyone in the world what America aspires to be. It states the belief that all were created equal, all had certain rights that come directly from God, and that it is the government's job to protect rights -- not give people rights.

The left is successfully painting everyone on the right to be a terrorist who enjoyed the Capitol Hill riots. If you ever want to win another election, it will be critical to explain what you stand for to the American people.

After all, ask yourself which makes you the most passionate to vote - removing someone from office or voting for a vision and change you believe in?

2 - The Constitution

Is there a better place to start this vision than the Constitution? Yes, it is mostly ignored today by those in power and is only referenced by politicians and media when it fits a narrative.

The Constitution is a beautiful and complex document but is primarily based on a straightforward principle. The government should be extremely limited in its power, but it should be as close to the people as possible where there is a clear need for government. Who can argue with this principle?

Who wants someone they have never met, dictating how they live their life?

This is why the Constitution grants the President no real power, and gives Congress 18 clauses of power, listed under Article 1, Section 8. Any and every power not mentioned there belongs at the state level.

3 - Finances

The power structure in DC has changed many times over the last twenty years, with both parties having the opportunity to rule the different federal branches. There have been two periods where one party controlled all the power in DC:

  • 2008-2010: Obama / Dem
  • 2016-2018: Trump / GOP

Despite these changes, your government continually grows, you continue to spend money you don't have, and in ten out of the last thirteen years, you have added over $1,000,000,000,000 to your national debt, which now sits just under $28 trillion. Does this seem sustainable to you? Of course not, but sadly your finances only get worse.

America has revenue of over $3.2 trillion every year, yet DC has not passed a budget since 2008. Can you imagine any business running that way? Do you think Apple, Amazon, or Disney have a budget? It is time to get America on a path to financial sustainability, work towards a balanced budget, and explain to the American people how you will achieve it.

4 - Taxes

Do you remember discussing taxes during the Tea Party?

We used to make the simple moral case to the American people: any money you earn is yours, you should use it to plan your life, and the government has no right to take it from you. This was so successful around 2012 that Herman Cain ran for President with one primary policy: the 9-9-9 plan.

If America is to return to prosperity after Covid, lower taxes and a simpler tax code must be a central theme.

5 - Cutting Government

Look at the size of the US government in 2021. Are you happy? Can you name the numerous departments? Is it now the freedom-loving Americans' position that agencies like Education, Energy, EPA, and Commerce are constitutional bodies of government and are well-run?

How about the IRS, which targeted Tea-Party groups under President Obama? Do they deserve support, or is it time to start sharing a vision of the departments that should be abolished?

This principle used to be a big part of the Conservative platform. It played a massive role in 2012 when Rick Perry ran for President. His campaign was destroyed in 45 short seconds when he could not remember the three agencies he would abolish.

Maybe it's time to refresh this debate but change the parameters. How about we discuss the agencies that should be kept?

6 - Bill of Rights

Today, the Bill of Rights is under constant attack. The far-left/woke mob hates free speech, and they seek to cancel anyone with an opposing view. However, the attacks on the Bill of Rights don't always come from the left.

America has a second amendment that guarantees you the right to bear arms. The last time the GOP held both houses of Congress and the Presidency, they banned bump stocks - but who really NEEDS a bump stock?

As the years have passed, some have admitted they are open to red flag laws. Is this still the case?

While the second amendment may be under attack, it is clear the fourth amendment is dead. Regardless of which party holds power in DC, the NSA is given continuous ability to spy on Americans. The simple, principled case from Rand Paul of "get a warrant" always falls on deaf ears.

The Bill of Rights should be a unifying document for most Americans, as the principles are self-evident and a significant part of any freedom platform going forward.

Conclusion

America will face significant challenges over the coming years. As the government continues to grow, the far left get more hostile, and central planners seek a great reset. If you share my concern, then now is the time to forget our tribes and ignore the debate on who should be President in 2024.

It's time to work hard to build a platform by raising a banner of bold colors, not pale pastels. We must share a clear vision to the American people of a bright future where they are free, prosperous, and can pursue their happiness.

When the platform is built and successful, people can identify the best candidate to run in 2024.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is under fire for questioning President Joe Biden's nominee for an assistant health secretary position, Dr. Rachel Levine, about her alleged support for giving children puberty blockers and sex-change surgeries.

During a confirmation hearing Thursday, Paul pointedly asked Levine, who is a transgender woman, about her support for allowing children to change their sex, and whether she believes children are capable of making such life-altering decisions.

Levine evaded the question, answering instead with a vague statement about the complexities of transgender medicine, which she would again reiterate for Paul's subsequent questions.

Watch a video clip of the confirmation hearing here.

Predictably, Paul has been labeled "transphobic" and accused of trying to derail Levine with "transphobic misinformation" by the leftist media.

On the Glenn Beck Radio Program Friday, Paul said his questioning Levine had nothing to do with who she is or the fact that she is a transgender adult, but was about the question of gender changes for children.

"The interesting thing is, none of it was directed towards her personally or who she is. It was directed towards the question of whether children can consent. And this is an intellectual question. It's not an inflammatory question. It's a question of serious consequences," he explained. "Most people would argue that children can't really make an informed consent. You know, we have laws against a man having sex with a 12-year-old, even if the 12-year-old says 'yes', because we don't think a 12-year-old is capable of consenting. They just aren't old enough to make the decision."

Paul went on to add, "I guess the danger is, you have to have some chutzpah. You have to have some guts, some courage to stand up because it is a culture out there where ... everybody is saying I made transphobic comments yesterday. All I did was ask whether a minor could consent to this kind of dramatic surgery. Nothing I ever said was hateful. I said nothing hateful about these people. I said nothing hateful about adults who choose to do this. But the culture is out there is so strong that so many in office are afraid to speak out. And it's getting worse.

"There's a handful of us that will speak out in the Senate. There's a handful in the House, and we just have to grow our ranks. But we have to resist or it just will roll over us. And we'll live in this terrible cancel culture world where nobody speaks out, and everybody is afraid to say anything."
