Portland Community College Devotes Entire Month to 'Whiteness'-shaming

Social Justice Warriors have been rampaging through social norms and traditions, typically testing their theories at institutions of higher learning. How far down the road of insanity we have traveled? Filling in for Glenn Tuesday on The Glenn Beck Program, Doc and Skip shared a perfect example.

Portland Community College has put their spin on Black History Month with courses under the auspices of 'Whiteness History Month,' challenging students to think about the privilege that comes with being white.

"Whiteness History Month?" Skip asked.

"Right. Because when I first saw the classes laid out, I thought to myself, 'Oh, so this is like some extreme right-wing group that's trying to make a point that there's Black History Month, why shouldn't there be, you know, White History Month or Latino History Month or Asian, or whatever.' Right?" Doc said.

But it's not 'White History Month' it's 'Whiteness History Month' --- a key difference. Watch the explanation video posted on Portland Community College's website below:

"Basically, that's saying that you're bad if you're white, and let's talk about the bad things that you do," Doc said. "For example, the notion of white fragility, they say, which is at least in part the microaggressions that white people do that are racist. That's what whiteness is."

So if it's not a joke, what on earth is the logic here?

"Even if there were some truth and logic there, I mean, where does it end? How much acknowledgment do you need before you will satisfy their need to be recognized? To what level do you have to acknowledge your whiteness?" Skip asked.

The ridiculousness has gotten out of hand, but two can play at that game.

"You know just by virtue of looking at me that I have no advantages in life. I have virtually no benefits," Doc said. "Yes, I was born white. I'm still white. I don't identify as any other color at this point. But I don't have a whole lot of benefits. I was born near Cleveland. I mean, you know, middle-class family. There's a whole lot of bad," Doc said.

As a person of a smaller stature, Skip pointed out one way Doc is privileged.

"Let me stop you there. There is at least some benefit that you have benefited from, I mean, with your tall privilege," Skip said.

Doc acknowledged he is blessed with certain abilities because of his height, but it's not all "Height Power" and "Height Supremacy."

"Let me help you out. Let me grab that for you. I'll take care of it," Doc said. "You don't realize the problems that come with being tall. Of people always saying, 'Hey, can you get that down for me?' And I'm like, 'What, you can't pull a chair over there? What, I have to get stuff out of the low cabinet?'"

Besides being put upon to help people challenged by shortness, Doc also has to diligently avoid hitting his head.

"This is not something I'm a champion for," Skip said. "But the fact that you won't even acknowledge your height privilege is---"

Doc cut him off.

"Perhaps Portland Community College can put together some sort of program, some sort of class, maybe Tall Person Awareness. It wouldn't be that. 'Tally History Month' --- something like that," Doc said.

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.
