Together with Jon Ossoff, Georgia Democrat Raphael Warnock is soon to become one of the most supported left-wing candidates in the country. The national party is set to pour millions and millions of dollars into the state to help Warnock defeat incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler, put Ossoff over the top in his separate race, and secure 50 seats in the Senate for the Democratic Party. While that would not technically put the Dems in the majority, the tie-breaking vote of the vice president – in this case, Kamala Harris – would essentially give them control of the upper chamber, control of the White House, and control of the entire legislature.
This situation has conspired to make these runoff race the most important in the nation, and you can expect that both sides will pull out all of the stops to win. But as the eyes of the country turn to Georgia, you can also expect that more will become known about the candidates themselves. For instance, just this week Warnock’s remarks from 2016 resurfaced, proving that he’s a radical, racially-focused Democrat who thinks Americans need to “repent” for supporting then-candidate Donald Trump.
In 2016, speaking at the Candler School of Theology, Warnock had vicious remarks for both Trump and his voters.
“If it is true that a man who has dominated the news and poisoned the discussion for months needs to repent, then it is doubly true that a nation that can produce such a man and make his vitriol go viral needs to repent,” Warnock said at the time. “No matter what happens next month, more than a third of the nation that would go along with this, is reason to be afraid. America needs to repent for its worship of whiteness, on full display this season.”
As pointed out by the Washington Free Beacon, Warnock’s 2016 remarks are far from the only entry into his collection of controversial comments:
The senior pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church, Warnock is now locked in a tight Senate race against Republican incumbent Kelly Loeffler. He is already under fire for a bevy of his previous statements, from calling Israel an “oppressive regime” to his defense of the anti-Semitic Rev. Jeremiah Wright. He is also come under scrutiny for praising his religious mentor, Dr. James Cone, who argued that white Christians practice the “theology of the Antichrist” and described whites as “satanic.”
Cool. This really sounds like a guy we need calling the shots in Washington.
But please, national media, run another story about Marjorie Taylor Green and keep pretending that Republicans have the market cornered on kooks. Your bias will be your undoing.
