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.

'The Fedcoin is HERE': Glenn Beck reveals what the Fed was up to while YOU weren’t watching

While Americans were preparing for Thanksgiving last Wednesday afternoon, the Federal Reserve moved forward with its "Central Bank Digital Currency" program, and that wasn't the only controversial policy that was rolled out while you weren’t watching.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck reviewed the latest financial stories you may have missed over the holiday weekend, including how Biden's pause on student loan payments may be extended again and yet another sketchy Hunter Biden investment.

"You might have missed what happened Wednesday afternoon at the Fed," Glenn began. "They started their CBDC, Central Bank Digital Currency. Yes, the Fedcoin is here. Now they rolled it out on Wednesday — I mean, that was the only day they could do it, you know, because they've been denying that any of this stuff was happening. But they could only get it [launched] when no one was paying attention. So they rolled it out, and it's in its beta test now."

"By the way, India just rolled out its retail pilot program for digital rupees as well. But don't worry," he continued. "Maybe we should start having the conversation of, 'Gosh, this looks like the mark of the beast.' I mean, doesn't it? But surely it's not. Of course not. Not from the U.S. government. They never do anything underhanded or evil. Never."

BIGGER than Tiananmen Square? Here's what the China protests are REALLY about

China has been locking its citizens down for over two years under its zero-COVID policy, and it's becoming more and more clear that this isn’t just about COVID but something much more serious: slavery and control. Now it looks like many citizens have had enough. Protests are currently spreading throughout China and, unlike during the Tiananmen Square protests, the word is getting out.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck looked into the protests' "real motivations," explained how they’re different from the 1989 protests at Tiananmen Square, and predicted how these events are a "game-changer for the entire world."
