On Tuesday, self-described “antiracism educator” and leftist activist Tim Wise called for the destruction of “White Alabama.” According to his words, this needs to happen if Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore wins the race, which he is currently leading.
Lamentably for Wise’s intentions, if his real goal is to avoid Moore getting elected, the truth is that providing these remarks represents a great favor to the Republican. After all, it has been proved that these kinds of crazy comments only unite the base even more.
Through his Twitter account, the leftist activist claimed that if white people decide to elect Moore in Alabama, no one should even spend another dime in the state. There are a couple exceptions, including the Birmingham City Rights Museum or a black-owned business, Wise said. In addition, he pointed out that if the Republican wins, “it’s time to destroy white Alabama like we should have 150 years ago.”
Unsurprisingly, this “Woke” tweet had its proper clarification, since he basically explained later that not all Trump supporters are racists, but they are all a bunch of “idiots.” Naturally, what seems quite ironic is that he pointed out he came to this conclusion after a day of deep reflection on the matter.
On that clarification, he also explained that whether idiots or racists, he has no moral obligation to indulge their “bulls###.” In fact, he even acknowledged that his only obligation is to defeat them at any cost.
While these are the words that you would expect from the craziest member of Antifa, the truth is that Wise’s social media reveals he just loves to glorify himself. Basically, we’re talking about a grown-up guy who still acts like 15-year old Occupy Wall Street member.
Literally, Wise fancies himself a modern-day MLK, per his Patreon page. In fact, he boasts himself of being a subversive leftist who fought against David Duke in the 90s and spoke around the country about institutional racism.
In addition, he assured he’s been engaged in the movement for social justice for more than two decades. Of course, he also promotes his podcast Speak Out With Tim Wise, which seems like a very capitalistic move from a guy who believes capitalism is the root of evil.
If you thought this was pathetic, the truth is that his social media bio seems like a sad parody. Just like a confused teenage socialist, he glorifies himself for blocking 4chan trolls and fighting alt-right Nazis since 1989. Of course, if we’re talking about someone who makes these remarks about Alabama and Trump supporters, it is obvious that he’s not exactly a fan of the president.
Recently, Wise said on Twitter that President Trump is nothing more than an embarrassment to the United States and the world. In addition, he finished his message by saying that anyone who supports him is an enemy of democracy and human decency. Instead of making a clarification after these comments, he actually said “no exceptions.”
The ironically racist “antiracism educator” has been endorsed by leftist sites like Salon. As a matter of fact, this media outlet assured Wise is one of the leading antiracism activists in the United States.
Naturally, his comments about Alabama and the Republican candidate seems quite convenient, considering what the latest polls revealed. According to a Change Research poll published on Monday, Moore is currently leading his Democratic challenger, thanks to a stunning 8-point surge over the last few weeks.
This way, the embattled Republican Senate candidate is back in the lead in Alabama. According to several reports, when pollsters dug a little deeper on what was fueling the reversal, they found more Republicans don’t believe the “garbage” allegations against Moore.
Yesterday I tweeted that if whites elect sexual predator Roy Moore it's time to financially destroy white Alabama. After careful reflection, I need to clarify. What I meant was: if whites elect sexual predator Roy Moore it's time to financially destroy white Alabama. #Better?

Recently, the White House announced that President Trump will not be campaigning for the Republican candidate. After sending some mixed signals about his support or lack thereof for Moore, Trump’s current tactic seems to be to step back from the race and let Alabama voters decide.
Naturally, analysts believe that it would be quite difficult for Moore to lose the race considering the stance of his base and the unpopularity of his counterpart Doug Jones. Of course, if these were the most important elements in the equation, Wise provided some comments that Moore’s Trump could easily exploit.
After all, there’s nothing better for the base than someone who represents the stereotype of the other side and provides a really disgusting comment.
