The End of Oppression: Doctor Who Has Gone Gender Fluid

I'll admit it, I'm a freak. I'm a Doctor Who geek. I've loved Doctor Who for the last five or six years. My son and I watch it. The BBC announced that the next version of Doctor Who will be a woman and it is "excited about this change." That's right, the character that England has enjoyed since the 1960s --- and America has pretty much ignored until recently --- will become a woman. Dr. Who has switched genders.

When I heard this news, I went into my son's room and told him. He put his head under his pillow, and all I heard was muffled gasps.

Now, frankly, I want to put this into perspective. I don't really care. I'm a fan of the show. I mean, if it's a great story, that's all I care about. But I have to tell you, I am sick of the lecture that we all have to endure from producers of television shows that they just want to show all the other producers they can be the most politically correct show or network of them all. After all, these TV shows are very important to humanity, you know.

So let everyone from here to Alpha Centauri know that the BBC is way far ahead of all other space-police-box-driving-time-lord doctor shows. They are the most politically correct. Now, if America, which has always behind, could just get Captain Kirk to make it with a tap dancing green man who has no legs, then all of the enlightened producers will have all the other characters refuse to point out that those green tap-dancing men with no legs cannot tap dance, let alone dance, walk or even move --- because they have no feet or legs. Wow.

That would sure teach those bigoted small town dummies, who the producers despise, a thing or two about how progressive our television shows can be. Then we can all truly be happy. Let us all toast to the end of all oppression!

Well, except for that tiny problem of that most the women in the Middle East not being allowed to drive or leave the house without a man. No need to concern ourselves with the fact that in some of those same countries gay men are beaten to death or thrown off rooftops. That is, if gays even exist. Iran claims gayness is caused by the evil Western culture, and thus, they have no gay people (except for those they have to execute, beat to death or throw off the roofs of buildings).

Other than that, gender fluidity in TV shows proves oppression has been dealt a deathly blow.

Well, except for the slaves that make your Apple iPhone or the 6,000 women and children currently used as sex slaves by ISIS. This Doctor Who innovation will definitely be the end of all that oppression. Even though there are currently more slaves than during the entire 400 years of the Western slave trade combined. But don't pay any attention to that because Doctor Who is finally --- finally --- gender fluid.

It's going to be so great, because we all need to be taught to be much more tolerant of gender fluidity. It's one of the most important things in the entire Western world. It is what's holding Western civilization back from being as great as all of the other civilizations on planet earth.

Man, we are going to be remembered by historians in the best possible light. I can almost hear their voices now:

Wow, these people really saw the truth. The cold, hard facts. They didn't scare this group of people off. Oh no, sir. Not in 2017 or 2018.

When they saw that the Western culture that freed more people, fed more people and more than doubled life spans of all humans wouldn't have a female space alien doctor with two hearts on a TV show, ---well, damn it --- the BBC sprang into action and made all the difference in the world.

No, sir. Those people were better than us today, I'll tell you that. They didn't waste a second. They fixed it. And then they called people bigots who thought it was all nonsense. And then they went on, ignoring the actual death count and the suffering and the beatings and the beheadings and the root of the eighth century-style oppression while watching Doctor Who or Doctor Her on their iPhone, made by Chinese slaves. Man, if we could just be more like those people that lived in 2017.

Historians are going to say that.

By the way, no animals were hurt in this monologue. And I or no one on the program did accept any money from the tobacco industry to depict smoking. However, Charlie Gard may be dead due to British socialized medicine death panels by the end of the week --- but pay no attention. Doctor Who is gender fluid.

WATCH: The DIVIDED States of America: Is It Time for a National Divorce?

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

Jason Whitlock: Raiders coach fired by NFL as a ‘SIGNAL’ to others

Raiders Head Coach Jon Gruden was forced to resign (fired) by the NFL on Monday due to 'misogynistic' and 'homophobic' language found in several of his old, private emails. But Jason Whitlock, sports writer and host of 'Fearless' on BlazeTV, tells Glenn that Gruden's words never should have resulted in his job lost: 'We should have accepted his apology and kept it moving.' But instead, Whitlock says the NFL chose to use Gruden as a 'signal' for all other employees who may oppose the football organization's current, far-left political stances: 'Taking over sports, taking over the NFL, is crucial to the goals of the left and what they're trying to do.'

How an ‘orchestrated’ revolution is bringing America TO ITS KNEES

Victor Davis Hanson, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, joins Glenn to discuss his new book, 'The Dying Citizen.' He explains how America's hippies from the 1960s are the progressive elites running our institutions today and how their 'well orchestrated' moves have created a top-down revolution that's 'bringing us down to our knees.' So, what's the solution? Davis Hanson tells Glenn what we can do to push back against the far left today…

Who Is More Evil: Government or Facebook? | Robby Soave | Ep 120

The Left and Right agree: Social media companies like Facebook are abusing their power — whether through censorship or harmful, groupthink-creating algorithms. But is the solution really more censorship and regulation, like government fearmongers and leftist "whistleblowers" have insisted? Glenn sits down with the senior editor at Reason, Robby Soave, who has a much more refreshing solution laid out in his latest book, "Tech Panic: Why We Shouldn't Fear Facebook and the Future." Politicians have weaponized the fear we have about social media. So, maybe we should be looking at the positives. Glenn and Robby take a look at the (very familiar) history of tech panic and censorship, balance the consequences of changing Section 230, and expose the real threat to the future of free speech: Progressive tyranny entrenched in the old school media.
