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.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
