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.

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
