Name Names — Radical of the Week



Tim Wise


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 a featured speaker at the 2009 Coalition of Essential Schools Fall Forum and has been invited to speak to students at several CES schools.

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.”

Part 1 – The Reparation Agenda: Obama’s Religion of Reparations – The Pro-Reconciliation Church


By Danette Clark
Originally posted February, 2012 – Part 1 of 6

“… they should receive reparations in the form of free education, free medical, free legal and free financial aid for 50 years with no taxes levied.” — Howshua Amariel, Chicago Activist

During his Presidential campaign, it was revealed that Barack Obama, in response to a 2004 NAACP questionnaire, wrote that he feared “reparations would be an excuse for some to say, ‘We’ve paid our debt’ and then avoid the much harder work.”

Although he was essentially rejecting only one specific form of reparations — issuing checks to the descendants of slaves — many mistakenly concluded that Obama was opposed to reparations as a whole.

Three years into his presidency, with a possible second term looming, Obama needs to answer the question again. Where does he stand on reparations?

The truth is the Obama administration has worked nonstop in the last three years to implement reparations, in one form or another. Whether through free health care, education and housing, or ‘spreading the wealth’ through entitlement programs, reparations appear to be President Obama’s first order of business.

From Charles Ogletree and Rashid Khalidi to Jeremiah Wright and Father Michael Phleger, Obama has always surrounded himself with people who believe white America needs to pay up. Today, the number of like-minded individuals that surround him, through White House appointments and fellowships, is staggering.

This is the first in a series of posts that will expose those working with Obama toward implementing reparations and the various avenues by which the President is preparing us for “the much harder work” that lies ahead (for whites).

After looking closer at Obama’s appointments and the foundation being laid, you can decide for yourself if his reparation agenda is about equality, repair, and making amends, or if it’s about punishing white America by destroying the capitalist system that, he believes, was built on the backs of slaves.

A Moral Obligation

The Obama administration has often used class warfare to gain political favor among minorities. Pitting race against race has likely been useful in gaining support for reparations as well, but it isn’t the only strategy being used. Where class warfare falls short, appealing to one’s sense of morality has proven to be very effective.

We’ve seen it with health care reform. Shortly after signing the bill into law, Obama called on religious leaders across the nation to promote the plan within their states, calling it a “core ethical and moral obligation.”

Obama’s Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships council is riddled with religious leaders from churches and organizations that actively participate in the work of “reconciliation”. However, this form of reconciliation has nothing to do with reconciling one’s self with God. It means that whites must reconcile themselves with blacks.

Many of these churches and organizations call themselves “anti-racist/pro-reconciliation” ministries. They often use the terms “restorative justice” and “racial reconciliation”, obviously a spin on the all-too-familiar phrase “social justice”.

Of course, Christians should never forget the atrocities of slavery and should always strive to promote equal opportunity. Every church should be anti-racist and Christian and Jewish houses of worship that aren’t opposed to racism obviously aren’t operating in accordance with the Word of God. However, it’s the reconciliation part that gets sticky.

The business of an anti-racist/pro-reconciliation ministry is to use God to guilt white America into believing it’s their moral obligation, as Christians, to redress past wrongs, specifically slavery, and make amends for them. It is also believed that the Christian church, as a whole, owes reparations for slavery because the church was complicit in slaveholding.

Sharon Watkins, Disciples of Christ

Sharon Watkins, an appointee to Obama’s Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships council member, is General Minister and President of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).

According to the church’s website, Watkins is general pastor of the 700,000 member denomination and is “responsible for representing the wholeness of the church, for reconciling differences, and for helping the church retain its clarity of mission and identity.”

Disciples of Christ churches collect a special offering during church services and through its website for its Reconciliation Ministry. In addition to providing grants to organizations and colleges for the creation of anti-racist/pro-reconciliation programs, the ministry also provides resources, it claims, to tell “the truth about the practice of slavery…giving faith-based reasons for support of a formal apology for slavery, and that….might prompt the creation of a Congressional Commission for the study of reparations issues.”

Disciples of Christ claims becoming an anti-racist/pro-reconciliation ministry is a priority for the entire denomination. Yet, ironically, the church promotes racism against whites through its resources and affiliations.

For example, its website recommends a book written by Tim Wise called Color Blind. Wise is known for distorting American history and demonizing our founding fathers as racist oppressors. During the 2008 presidential campaign, he warned that an age of fascism would arise if John McCain became president.

The Franklin Circle Disciples of Christ church in Cleveland, Ohio, hosted an event in 2008 in which they invited Eddie Moore, Jr. to speak on diversity. Moore is founder of the White Privilege Conference, which hosts speakers like Tim Wise and Cornel West.

I wrote an article on the White Privilege Conference last year that will give you a glimpse into the hatred being spread against whites. Read it here.

Sharon Watkins is just one of many of the President’s appointees who are manipulating from within the church to fulfill the reparation agenda. I will talk about a few more in upcoming posts, as well as touch on Obama’s Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act, the push for institutional reparations for slavery, and the attack on Israel by several of Obama’s faith-based council members.


Derrick Bell’s Critical Race Theory and Bill Ayers’ ‘Education Debt’

By Danette Clark    March 20, 2012

The most recent from Breitbart.com’s Big Government regarding President Obama’s mentor, Derrick Bell, is that “a radical organization known as the Pacific Educational Group (PEG) is actively promoting Derrick Bell’s Critical Race Theory in public elementary and high schools nationwide, with an intense focus on what PEG calls “Systemic Racism.”

What many don’t know is that Pacific Educational Group is part of a network of progressive organizations and schools affiliated with the Coalition of Essential Schools (CES).

CES is a network of thousands of schools nationwide that received big dollars from President Obama and Bill Ayers through their work on the board of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge in the 1990s.

Both Ayers and Obama still promote CES schools today.

PEG is just one of many radical organizations working with CES and countless other schools in the U.S. to indoctrinate students with a curriculum that weaves anti-white, anti-America bias into every course subject, from writing and history, to science and “radical math.”

According to Brietbart.com, “a promotional video for PEG explains that the organization targets ‘white culture’ as the source of the problems that minority students face.”

A look at PEG’s website and the line up of educators and keynote speakers for its annual summits also speaks volumes:

.  Eddie Moore, Jr., founder of the White Privilege Conference. Moore’s conference is promoted by many educators and school districts across the country and hosts such speakers as socialist and Obama pal, Cornel West, who has referred to the United States as “a racist patriarchal” nation where “white supremacy” continues to define everyday life.

The Conference also provides musical entertainment from groups like The Coup, whose lyrics incite violence and hatred toward whites with songs like “5 Million Ways to Kill a CEO” and “Kill My Landlord”.

.  Tim Wise, a self-proclaimed anti-racism expert, incessantly expresses his disdain for traditional values and white America with statements like this:

“If fascism comes, it will spring from the soil of middle America, from people known as values voters but whose values are toxic, from simple folk whose simplicity, far from being admirable, is better labeled ignorance, from ‘all-American’ types whose patriotism is a dagger pointed at the very heart of the national interest…If fascism comes, it will be ushered in by tailgaters at the big football game, by Joe Six Pack…If fascism comes it will dress like a hockey mom, or a NASCAR dad.”

.  Linda Darling Hammond, a top education adviser to Obama’s presidential campaign. Hammond sat on the board of the Bay Area Coalition of Essential Schools and has worked closely with Bill Ayers on social justice education through CES and the American Education Research Association.

.  Gloria Ladson-Billings, co-author with Bill Ayers of City Kids, City Schools: More Reports from the Front Row. Billings introduced Derrick Bell’s Critical Race Theory to education to explain and promote the idea that white supremacy is the cause of the “achievement gap” between whites and minorities.

Billings believes, as does Bill Ayers and Linda Darling Hammond, that an education debt is owed to minorities. Billings has also worked closely with them through CES and the American Education Research Association.

So, to sum up what minority children are learning from President Obama’s friends and colleagues in education, all whites are racist, they are the reason for all of your problems, and they owe you.

Not exactly motivation for success.
