Activist: If Moore Wins, 'Time to Destroy White Alabama'

Liberal activist Tim Wise has some very strong opinions on the Alabama Senate race. In fact, his opinions are so strong they might require a warning label.

In the process, he reveals the contempt progressives have for anyone who doesn’t think they way they do.

So, it’s alright to annihilate people who disagree with you about the allegations against a politician?

Sure. Seems legit.

Wise opted to clarify his comments. It didn’t make it sound too much better.

So instead of literally destroying them, he just wants to financially destroy them. Doesn’t that sound so much better?

Never mind that it’s impossible to economically punish whites in Alabama without also hurting blacks residing in the state. It’s also impossible to punish just the Roy Moore voters in the state without punishing those who did what Wise thinks they should.

And I bet he wonders why the South tends to be full of red states.

Look, I’m not a Roy Moore fan. I happen to believe the allegations against him and think the Washington Post did an exceptional job on their report. I do find it odd that these allegations all surfaced smack dab in the middle of the whole #MeToo thing, but whatever.

However, a lot of people in Alabama don’t believe the claims, and that’s the thing about folks on the right. We’ve never once supported the idea that a woman making an allegation should automatically be believed just on general principle. That means Moore supporters are free to determine whether they believe the allegations or not.

They have determined they don’t.

Yes, that might be because the allegations are simply against their guy, but what are you going to do?

Oh, yeah, destroy them.

Wise would try and punish an entire state, many of whom wouldn’t have voted for Roy Moore, simply because the wrong guy got in. His entire reasoning boils down to “be liberal or else.” If he had his way, Alabama would either have to vote for a Democrat or have their entire economy wrecked.

Luckily, Tim Wise doesn’t have the pull to make that happen. He’s just another blowhard liberal who wants to boss Southerners around, and he probably thinks being from Nashville will help. Guess what, though. It won’t.
