Marxist Teacher Who Called For ‘Forceful Cultural Revolution’ Lands Seat on State Legislature

Hannah Grossman, Fox News, August 28, 2023

Marxist teacher from Colorado, who called for a “FORCEFUL Cultural Revolution” against “Whiteness,” was voted in by Democrats to fill an open state House of Representatives seat Saturday.

Tim Hernández was selected as a state representative for the Denver area on Saturday by a committee of Democrats tasked with filling the vacant seat after its incumbent, Serena Gonzales-Gutierrez, was elected to the Denver City Council.

Hernandez worked at Aurora West Preparatory Academy in the Aurora Public Schools District, according to its website from May. Their staff list has since been scrubbed, and it was unclear if he continues to work in the Colorado district. A sign in his classroom called for “Dismantl[ing] White systems.”


Fox News Digital also probed into Hernández’s public social media, and found the teacher called for a “FORCEFUL cultural revolution,” particularly against American “whiteness” and “white supremacy.”


“If White people spent HALF of the time they spend trying to distance themselves from their Whiteness and instead spent it actually deconstructing systems of White supremacy, where would we be?” he asked. “[S]ystems of white supremacy are upheld by individuals- to remove individuality from this conversation is unproductive… I am absolutely advocating for a Cultural Revolution where we dismantle individual and systemic White supremacy,” he said in January 2021.

“We’re talking about Whiteness and White supremacy. And I’m willing to advocate for any form of disruption to it and every manifestation it has,” he said.

“Am I denying the freedom to uphold White supremacy? If so, I am in favor of that denial. And, White supremacy is CURRENTLY upheld by force. So yes, I’m advocating a FORCEFUL cultural revolution wherein we assert the dignity of life for all at the expense of White supremacy.”

Hernández’s classroom was filled with flags supportive of the Palestinian and far-left political causes, including one that suggested the United States of America belonged to the Aztecs.

Hernández was previously fired at another school in Denver Public Schools after being called “aggressive, divisive and attacking” by a school’s administrator, he said in a tweet.


Hernández also said White people need to be subject to re-education.

“How long are we going to have to wait for White people to ‘grow’ and ‘unlearn?’ Because [to be honest], having to wait for the group in our society that has the slightest education levels, most economic power, and highest political capital to ‘grow’ seems like bulls–t to me,” he said on X.

On another occasion, Hernández blasted White women.

“I seriously question if White women even remotely notice the number of times they interrupt other people in a day,” he said.

He has also commented about the “racial dynamics of teaching,” blasting the profession for being 80% White.
