THE PEOPLE BEHIND THE LARGEST PROGRESSIVE INDOCTRINATION MOVEMENT IN THE U.S.
RADICAL OF THE WEEK
A self-proclaimed anti-racism expert, Tim Wise has no qualms about expressing his disgust for conservatives and traditional American values.
Just before the 2008 presidential election, Wise wrote a piece claiming that people attending McCain/Palin rallies were shouting demands to kill Barack Obama. The article warned that if fascism comes, it will come from “men and women…with baseball caps and What Would Jesus Do? wristbands… from the soil of middle America, from people known as values voters but whose values are toxic…by tailgaters at the big football game, by Joe Six Pack…a hockey mom or a NASCAR dad.”
Wise was also a featured speaker at the 2010 White Privilege Conference. The conference has been attended by many Coalition of Essential Schools teachers and students.

In response to the Republican Party’s broad victory in the 2010 midterm elections, Wise wrote an ‘open letter to the white right’. In his seething rant, he warns ‘rich folks’ that their time is limited. Wise then goes on to say:
“…conservative old white people have pretty much always been the bad guys…the folks unwilling to share the category of American with others on equal terms. Fine, keep it up. It doesn’t matter. Because you’re on the endangered list… you are not worth saving.”
“In forty years or so, maybe fewer, there won’t be any more white people around who actually remember that Leave it to Beaver, Father Knows Best, Opie-Taylor-Down-at-the-Fishing Hole cornpone bullshit that you hold so near and dear to your heart…there won’t be any more white folks around who think the 1950s were the good old days…so therefore, we’ll be able to teach about them accurately and honestly…”
“It’s OK. Because in about forty years, half the country will be black or brown. And there is nothing you can do about it…”
“Do you hear it? The sound of your empire dying? Your nation, as you knew it, ending, permanently? Because I do, and the sound of its demise is beautiful.”
