'This Is an Industry of Idiots': Gingrich Rips Univ's White Privilege Workshops
More and more taxpayer-funded universities across the country are supporting programs and conferences for white students to confront their "privilege."
On Tuesday, the University of Wisconsin-Madison hosted a special "white privilege" workshop.
Oregon State University, Miami University of Ohio and the University of Vermont are among the other state-funded schools to have recently sponsored similar events.
On "Outnumbered" today, Newt Gingrich ripped the "industry of idiots" behind these programs, which he said is making money by guilt-tripping universities and students.
"We have tolerated a level of fascism ... and taxpayers shouldn't pay for it," Gingrich stated. "If private universities want to waste their money, that's what freedom's about. But no tax-paid institution should engage in stupidity when they actually need to be training kids to get a job."
Andrea Tantaros wondered if the point of these workshops is to have everyone come together, then why would they divide and "segregate" people based upon race.
Gingrich said that the people behind white privilege training - much like Big Brother in George Orwell's "1984" - actually want to impose a "ruthless mindset."
