The Problem Is Not White Privilege, It’s ‘Liberal Privilege’

Equipped with the White Privilege Checklist, a list of “conditions that … attach somewhat more to skin-color privilege than to class, religion, ethnic status, or geographic location,” as written by Peggy McIntosh, associate director for Wellesley College Center for Research on Women, Glenn questioned Stu about his white privilege status on today’s episode of Glenn.

McIntosh describes white privilege as “an invisible package of unearned assets, which I can count on cashing in each day, but about which I was ‘meant’ to remain oblivious. White privilege is like an invisible weightless knapsack of special provisions, maps, passports, codebooks, visas, clothes, tools, and blank checks.”

Among the 50 “examples of ways that white individuals have privileges because they are white” on McIntosh’s list, is the following: “I can take a job with an affirmative action employer without having my co-workers on the job suspect that I got it because of my race.”

“What is the problem with affirmative action [or] everybody thinking you got into it with affirmative action?” asked Glenn. “Are you saying you’re less qualified to get in?”

“I have this theory that maybe governments shouldn’t make policy based on skin color, any policy, ever,” said Stu, adding, “It’s a crazy thing, I know.”

“It’s not because white privilege or black privilege. It is because of liberal privilege,” said Glenn. He later went on to say, “The bigger issue is liberal privilege. Treat everyone the same, no matter their skin color, no matter their ideological bent or their opinion. Treat humans as humans. That’s really not a tough concept.”

FULL EPISODE: 'The Democrats' Hydra'

"As one falls, two more will take their place." Democracy does die in darkness and is being strangled in secret, back-door arrangements. In the third part of Glenn's special series on the REAL Ukraine scandal, the team's research exposes a much bigger story of what Democrats were doing in Ukraine. Disturbing details and explosive documents reveal how the Obama Deep State allowed the theft of a country and has set the stage for devastating consequences in our democracy today. Glenn explains how it's all happening under the nose of the president and, more importantly, without the approval of the American people.

Bill O'Reilly: How corrupt media twisted Joe Biden Ukraine scandal onto Trump

Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.
