Critical Race Theory Georgia runoff election Intelwars New 'national religion' Raphael warnock

Glenn Beck: This is the REAL Raphael Warnock and our new ‘national religion’

Multiple news outlets have called one of Georgia’s Senate runoff elections for the Rev. Raphael Warnock, the Democrat who defeated Republican incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler.

So, on the radio show Wednesday, Glenn Beck looked into what this “radical preacher” has been saying in the past — and what he’ll likely bring to the U.S. Senate in the future.

“Warnock is in one of the most influential and powerful stages of the country. And I use the word ‘stage’ intentionally,” Glenn said. “It’s the pulpit. He’s the guy who says, if you voted for Donald Trump, well, you’re a sinner.”

Glenn introduced a video clip in which Warnock asserts:

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. I know, no matter what happens next month, more than a third of the nation that would go along with this, has reason to be afraid. America needs to repent for its worship of whiteness!

“So, (according to Warnock) you should be afraid,” Glenn said. “Oh, and whiteness is evil. And, somehow or another, America has been worshiping whiteness … see, critical race theory is now our new national religion.”

Georgia runoff election Intelwars Meghan McCain Raphael warnock The View watch Whoopi Goldberg

Angry Whoopi Goldberg slaps down Meghan McCain’s questions for Democratic US Sen.-elect Raphael Warnock — who of course skirted them

Co-host Meghan McCain has been having a tough couple of days on “The View.”

On Monday, the lone conservative voice on the decidedly left-wing TV program was forced to push back against Joy Behar — perhaps the most ardent leftist co-host on the show — over her “dangerous'” rhetoric regarding those who voted for President Donald Trump.

But it got nastier on Wednesday during a segment in which “The View” welcomed with open arms the new U.S. senator-elect from Georgia, the Rev. Raphael Warnock.

What happened?

McCain had no intention of pitching softballs to the far-left Democrat, fresh from his runoff victory Tuesday night — but she did offer him congratulations to start things off.

“I watched your race closely like everyone else, and you talked a lot about unity on the campaign trail and the need to unify the country and unify Georgians,” she continued. “But progressives across the country are celebrating that your election could mean adding two states, eliminating the filibuster, and packing the Supreme Court with more members. Your colleague [Democratic U.S. Sen.] Joe Manchin has joined with Republicans to reject those ideas. [Democratic Senate Minority Leader] Chuck Schumer this morning tweeted ‘buckle up.’ So you could understand how it’s hard for Republicans like to believe in the spirit of unity. And I want to know, will you do the same thing as Joe Manchin and agree not to follow up on all of those things?”

Warnock skirted McCain’s question by replying that he hasn’t been thinking about those issues, and neither are his constituents. But McCain refused to let him grandstand, and she interrupted his attempt to move the goalposts.

“Senator, I do believe that average Americans care about packing the courts, and I just want to know if you would agree and join Joe Manchin and agree that you’re not for that?” McCain continued.

Already a skilled politician, Warnock certainly knows how to avoid giving direct answers — and he warbled on about other issues.

But after he finished, McCain continued to press: “Senator, I understand that. I’m just asking you a direct question. I just wanted to know if you would join—”

Goldberg, however, began speaking while McCain was still asking her question: “Well … actually, I’m going to end this. I get …”

And then she yelled at McCain: “Hey, listen!”

Dialing it back just a tad, Goldberg continued by saying, “We’re gonna say thanks to the Senator-elect, Rev. Raphael Warnock, and we will be right back. Thanks for coming back, sir.”

Warnock smiled and said, “Great to be on ‘The View!'”

climate justice filibuster Georgia runoff elections Health Care Intelwars Jon Ossoff Raphael warnock student loans Voting Rights Act

Ocasio-Cortez, other Democrats reveal what agenda they will push with control of White House, Congress

As the dust settles from Georgia’s monumental Senate runoff elections, Democrats are making very clear what agenda they will pursue now that they will likely control the White House and both chambers of Congress.

As of Wednesday morning, Raphael Warnock (D) is the projected winner over Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R), and it appears that Jon Ossoff (D) will defeat Sen. David Purdue (R). If these results stand, the Senate will be split 50-50, giving Democrats control of the upper chamber because Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will serve as a tie-breaking vote.

What do Democrats plan to do?

Taking control of Congress and the White House is a significant feat, and it allows one party to advance its agenda without much resistance.

Now, Democrats will have the opportunity to advance their policies, many of which have been blocked by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R) for the last six years.

Rep. Chris Pappas (D-N.H.) revealed Tuesday exactly what Democrats can do with their newfound power by passing legislation blocked by McConnell.

  • Stimulus Checks: House Democrats passed a bill that would provide Americans with $2,000 stimulus checks after President Donald Trump asked for stimulus checks greater than $600. The Republican-controlled Senate, however, squashed the effort.
  • The Equality Act: “The Equality Act would would provide consistent and explicit anti-discrimination protections for LGBTQ people across key areas of life, including employment, housing, credit, education, public spaces and services, federally funded programs, and jury service.”
  • The DREAM Act: A bill introduced to Congress nearly a dozen times over the last two decades, often with bipartisan sponsors, it would “pathway to legal status for undocumented youth who came to this country as children,” according to American Immigration Council.
  • Voting Rights Act: Democrats have attempted to legislatively restore a part of the Voting Rights Act that was struck down by the Supreme Court in 2013. With McConnell in charge of the Senate, Democrats have been unsuccessful in their endeavors.

Pappas said Democrats can also make headway on “infrastructure,” giving states and local governments more funding, likely referring to coronavirus-related aid, and “climate action.” It was not clear whether Pappas was referring to the far-left Green New Deal.

Other Democrats were more explicit.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said Democrats can now pursue “student loan cancellation,” the end of the death penalty, and “climate justice.”

Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) said Democrats can increase the minimum wage, advance “guaranteed health care,” promote “repro justice,” likely a reference to wider abortion access, and fight for “racial justice.”

“VICTORY in Georgia must lead to transformative change across America! Recurring survival checks, union jobs that pay a living wage, guaranteed health care, racial justice, voting rights, immigration reform, climate action, repro justice, education, and MUCH more. It can’t wait!” she said.

Brian Fallon, who served as a senior member of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, added that Democrats can now “eliminate the filibuster” and “reform the courts,” a likely allusion to packing the federal courts with liberal justices.

This power shift in Washington, D.C., is significant particularly because it happened so quickly.

Over the span of just two years, the Republican Party, under Trump’s leadership, lost the House (in the 2018 midterms), the White House, and now the Senate.

Alyssa milano Alyssa milano twitter Georgia election Intelwars Metoo Raphael warnock Twitter Twitter reactions

Alyssa Milano slammed as #MeToo ‘hypocrite’ for fundraising for Raphael Warnock, who was involved in domestic dispute

Actress Alyssa Milano has been a vocal #MeToo advocate, but some are claiming that the Democratic activist’s morals appear to waver when it comes to the Georgia Senate runoffs.

During Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings in 2018, Milano was extremely critical of Kavanaugh, and welcomed all of the allegations against him without questioning them. She wore a sash with the words “BELIEVE WOMEN” on it during Kavanaugh’s hearing. She also sat behind Kavanaugh and held up a booklet that read: “I BELIEVE SURVIVORS.”

Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images

“I wasn’t there with any political agenda. I was there to support a survivor of sexual assault,” Milano told The Hollywood Reporter in 2018. “As a survivor, it literally is all of our worst nightmares come true. This is exactly the reason why we don’t come forward, or we don’t report. Because of the scrutiny. Because a man’s word will always mean more than our word. And it’s disgusting.”

But now, people are pointing out that Milano has a much different approach when it comes to the broad strokes of “I believe survivors” and “believe women.” Milano is raising money for Democratic Senate candidate Raphael Warnock, who was allegedly involved in a domestic dispute.

Warnock is alleged to have run over the foot of his ex-wife Oulèye Ndoye during an altercation that police responded to. Police bodycam footage shows the aftermath of a verbal altercation between the couple, who got divorced in November 2019.

“This man’s running for the United States Senate and all he cares about right now is his reputation,” Ndoye told police. “I work at the mayor’s office and this is a big problem. I’ve been trying to be very quiet about the way he is for the sake of my kids and his reputation.”

“I’ve tried to keep the way that he acts under wraps for a long time and today he crossed the line,” she continued. “So that is what is going on here and he’s a great actor. He is phenomenal at putting on a really good show.”

The wife claimed that Warnock ran over her foot with a car, but medical examiners found no physical damage.

In an incident from 2002, Warnock “repeatedly disrupted a 2002 police investigation into child abuse at a church-affiliated summer camp, interfering with interviews and discouraging counselors from speaking with investigators,” according to two Maryland State Police reports obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

Despite the problematic allegations, #MeToo champion Milano is proudly supporting Warnock. Milano has been working the phone banks for Warnock and fellow Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Jon Ossoff.

On Dec. 16, Milano asked Warnock on Twitter, “How’s our fundraising goal looking?”

Some online commentators pointed out the hypocrisy of Milano raising money for someone who has accusations against him by his ex-wife.

One Twitter used asked, “Where’s the Me too movement now?”

Another user responded, “#MeToo is an exclusive club now? To only woman you agree with.”

Someone said, “#MeToo was a complete lie.”

Another person wrote, “Do you see a hypocrite when you look in the mirror @Alyssa_Milano Asking for a friend #metoo #timesup.” The reply included a Rose McGowan tweet, where the actress torched Milano and called her a “fraud” for her silence about the sexual accusations against Joe Biden by former Senate staffer Tara Reade.

“You are a fraud. This is about holding the media accountable. You go after Trump & [Supreme Court Justice Brett] Kavanaugh saying Believe Victims, you are a lie. You have always been a lie. The corrupt DNC is in on the smear job of Tara Reade, so are you. SHAME,” McGowan wrote in April.

Georgia’s two runoff elections for U.S. Senate take place on Jan. 5.

Georgia election Intelwars Police footage Raphael warnock Warnock ex-wife Warnock wife

VIDEO: Raphael Warnock’s ex-wife tells police she ‘tried to keep the way he acts under wraps,’ says he’s a ‘great actor’ following domestic dispute

Newly released bodycam footage shows the Rev. Raphael Warnock’s ex-wife telling police that the Democratic Senate candidate is a “great actor” and “phenomenal at putting on a really good show” after they responded to a domestic dispute call in March.

Oulèye Ndoye, who married Warnock in 2016 and had two children with him before they divorced in November 2019, reportedly called officers to the scene after Warnock allegedly ran over her foot with a car.

Warnock, who serves as the senior pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, was never charged with a crime and medical officials said they didn’t find any visible signs of injury at the scene, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. At the time, Warnock flatly denied the allegation to the news outlet, saying “it didn’t happen.”

But interest in the incident has resurfaced after Fox News’ Tucker Carlson obtained video from the scene that shows Warnock and Ndoye talking to officers about what allegedly happened moments earlier. Ndoye then opens up about Warnock’s character.

“This man’s running for the United States Senate and all he cares about right now is his reputation,” Ndoye said in a sidebar with police. “I work at the mayor’s office and this is a big problem. I’ve been trying to be very quiet about the way he is for the sake of my kids and his reputation.

“I’ve tried to keep the way that he acts under wraps for a long time and today he crossed the line,” she continued. “So that is what is going on here and he’s a great actor. He is phenomenal at putting on a really good show.”

Rev. Warnock told the officer: “I don’t want to get into a shoving match with her. So I go back around, get back in the car, and I slowly start to move, like I’m gonna move forward. Then she claims I ran over her foot.”

The two reportedly got into an argument after Ndoye tried to get Warnock’s signature for a passport that would allow her to take their kids to see her family in West Africa after the death of her grandfather.

“He’s like, ‘Ouleye, close the door. I’m leaving,'” she told the officer while crying, according to Fox News. “And I was like, ‘just hear me out. If your mom died, and I had the kids. Wouldn’t you want me to let them go with you to the funeral? And he just starts backing the car up. He wasn’t going fast, I’m not bleeding. But I just can’t believe he’d run me over.”

The new video is sure to garner attention with only two weeks to go before Warnock faces off against Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler (Ga.) in the Jan. 5 Senate runoff election. The race is one of two in the Peach State that will decide which party controls the Senate.

Georgia election Intelwars Kelly loeffler Marco Rubio Marxism Raphael warnock Runoff election Socialism

Marco Rubio warns that Raphael Warnock is ‘unabashed Marxist sympathizer who would destroy the American Dream’

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) delivered a warning to Georgians about Democratic candidate Raphael Warnock ahead of the upcoming runoff elections on Jan. 5. Rubio urged people to vote for Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler because Warnock’s “policies do not represent Georgia values.”

“Democrat Raphael Warnock is the most radically liberal candidate anywhere in the country,” Rubio wrote in a Fox News opinion piece. “He would vote in lock-step with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., to eliminate the Senate filibuster, pack the U.S. Supreme Court, raise taxes on families and small businesses by trillions of dollars, decimate families and farmers with the Green New Deal, socialize your health care, shut down the economy, and weaponize technology companies to silence dissent.”

Rubio labeled Warnock as “an unabashed Marxist sympathizer who would destroy the American Dream.”

“He has repeatedly praised Marxism and socialism, and slammed capitalism, writing that ‘the Marxist critique has much to teach the black church’ and that the Black middle-class should pay more attention to the ‘hard questions about the distribution of wealth,'” the senator wrote.

Earlier this month, Loeffler’s campaign released a compilation of Warnock’s writings and associations that appear to flirt with Marxism and socialism.

Like Rubio, Loeffler has made comments about Warnock’s coziness with Marxism, and in November, she said that her Democratic challenger has “a Marxist ideology.”

During an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity” on Wednesday night, Loeffler said she and fellow Georgia Republican Sen. David Perdue “are the firewall to socialism in this country.”

“If we don’t vote, we could see the election of America’s first Marxist senator in this country, right here in Georgia. And that’s why we’re the firewall,” Loeffler said of Warnock if he is elected.

“My opponent, radical liberal Raphael Warnock, is a socialist,” Loeffler said during the debate between the candidates earlier this month. Loeffler challenged Warnock to “renounce socialism and Marxism.”

Warnock refused to condemn socialism and Marxism, and defended his politics by replying, “I believe in the free enterprise system.”

Florida Republican Sen. Rick Scott called Warnock a “radical’s radical,” and questioned the Democratic candidate’s comments about Cuba’s former Marxist-Leninist dictator Fidel Castro. When Castro died in 2016, Warnock said, “We remember Fidel Castro, whose legacy is complex. Don’t let anybody tell you a simple story.”

Scott slammed Warnock’s defense of Castro, “Murder isn’t complex. Exporting terrorism across Latin America isn’t complex. Denying his people basic human rights isn’t complex. This shouldn’t be hard.”

In his article, Rubio concluded that the country does not need “someone like Raphael Warnock who espouses Marxism and has spent his life siding with brutal dictators.”

Loeffler and Warnock will face off in a runoff election, as will incumbent Perdue and Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff. The Georgia races will determine which party controls the Senate next year. The Republicans hold a 50-48 advantage, but the chamber would be split if Warnock and Ossoff win, allowing the vice president to break any ties.

Black pastors Intelwars Pastors confront warnock Raphael warnock Senate runoffs Warnock abortion

Black pastors call out Rev. Raphael Warnock for supporting ‘systemic racism of abortion’

A coalition of more than 25 black pastors — mainly from Georgia — recently called out Democratic Senate candidate Rev. Raphael Warnock over his support for abortion ahead of the Peach State’s Jan. 5 runoff elections.

In a letter obtained by Fox News and sent last Friday, the pastors said they felt “compelled to confront” the reverend after he recently made public comments supporting abortion, which they said represented “grave errors of judgment and a lapse in pastoral responsibility.”

In November, Warnock tweeted, “I will always fight for reproductive justice.” Then in another tweet, he said, “I’m a pro-choice pastor, and I believe that a hospital room is way too small for a woman, her doctor, and the United States government.”

The tweets followed an earlier public statement the reverend made during a podcast interview in which he argued that abortion is an exercise of “human agency and freedom” and is “consistent with” his beliefs as a minister.

Warnock, who serves as senior pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church, an Atlanta church where both Martin Luther King Jr. and his father once pastored, is challenging Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler (Ga.) for one of the two Senate seats up for grabs in Georgia.

In the letter, the pastors charged Warnock to reconsider his position based on biblical grounds and instead turn to denounce the evil practice:

As a Christian pastor and as a Black leader, you have a duty to denounce the evil of abortion, which kills a disproportionate number of Black children. Your open advocacy of abortion is a scandal to the faith and to the Black community.

Abortion is fundamentally in conflict with the plain reading of the Bible. The Bible clearly teaches that human life is created by God beginning at conception. As Psalm 139 proclaims:”You knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am wonderfully and fearfully made.” What human being could possibly have the right to blot out an innocent life that God has wonderfully and fearfully made?

Abortion prematurely thwarts God’s providential and loving plan for a promising human life.And by terminating an innocent unborn life in the womb, abortion directly violates the seventh commandment: “Thou shalt not kill.” God demands that every faithful Christian protect and uphold the sanctity of innocent human life, at every stage of life. Supporting abortion represents a serious abdication of and a transgression against that responsibility, just like the disrespect of the poor, the disabled, or the elderly.

Later in the letter, the pastors also entreated Warnock to change course over the devastation that abortion has wreaked on the black community. They pointed out that the abortion movement was begun with the premise of racism and white supremacy and today continues to disproportionately harm black Americans.

“Can you in good conscience defend abortion, knowing that abortion kills 474 Black babies for every 1000 live births?” the pastors asked.

“For all of the above reasons, we entreat you to reconsider your public advocacy for abortion,” they concluded. “We implore you to uphold the Biblical defense of life and to fight against the systemic racism of abortion.”

It’s not the first time that Warnock has been confronted over his support for abortion. Last week, former NFL coach Tony Dungy questioned Warnock’s faith over the issue.

Abortion Bible Christianity Georgia runoff election Intelwars Pastor Pro-choce Raphael warnock Tony dungy

Tony Dungy questions faith of ‘pro-choice pastor’ and Georgia Senate candidate Raphael Warnock: ‘Is he a Christian?’

Former NFL coach Tony Dungy is an outspoken Christian who’s not afraid to stand up to those who speak falsely about the faith.

The Rev. Raphael Warnock — a Georgia Democrat who’s running against incumbent GOP Sen. Kelly Loeffler in a runoff election Jan. 5 — earlier this week tweeted that he’s a “pro-choice pastor.”

Rev. Warnock, meet Coach Dungy:

“Rev. Warner may be a pastor,” Dungy tweeted about the leader of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta. “My question would be, ‘Is he a Christian?’ That is, does he follow the teachings of Jesus, and does he believe that the Bible is the absolute word of God?”

The Super Bowl-winning coach added, “I would think it would be difficult for someone who believes that God sees us when we are in the womb (Psalm 139:13-16) to think that it is OK to choose not to bring that life to fruition.”

When a Twitter user brought up back-alley abortions to Dungy and that “all women should choose what happens to their body,” Dungy replied by asking the critic to read the verses in Psalm 139 he referenced the previous day.

“Then tell me if you think God puts babies in the womb or man does?” Dungy continued. “If you believe they randomly get there, then I have no argument. But if you believe God puts them there, then how does anyone have a right to ‘choose’ which ones survive?”

In another tweet, Dungy also focused the debate on an unborn baby being a life:

“What if I was advocating for the right to kill someone who was already born?” Dungy argued. “Would that be morally OK? Of course not. The only question in this debate is what we think of the unborn baby? Is it a life, or is it not?”

And then a left-wing commenter declared to Dungy that the definition of a Christian is “someone who dedicates their life to the service of the poor, the sick, and the marginalized. Someone who lives without judgement [sic] or lies. This applies to about 0% of conservative ‘Christians.'”

But Dungy had something to say about that, too.

“A Christian is someone who believes Jesus is the son of God and that He died on the cross for our sins,” Dungy wrote. “They follow God’s teachings and use the word of God to make all their decisions. I don’t know how many people in the world that applies to but there are many.”

Georgia Senate Guns in church Intelwars Navy SEAL NRA Raphael warnock Social Media Videos

Navy SEAL rips Georgia Senate candidate Rev. Raphael Warnock for mocking churchgoers who want to carry guns in church

Eli Crane, a former Navy SEAL, blasted controversial Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Rev. Raphael Warnock on Wednesday after Warnock mocked Christians who want to carry guns in church for self-defense purposes.

What’s a brief history here?

Warnock in 2014 mocked parishioners over their desire to carry guns in church ahead of the implementation of the Safe Carry Protection Act, which allowed residents with concealed carry licenses to carry in places like churches.

In late November, the National Rifle Association resurfaced Warnock’s remarks in a now-viral video condemning the reverend’s sentiments.

What are the details of the video?

In the video, released on Wednesday, Crane said that even though he is retired, he will never stop fighting for the United States — which includes standing up against those who might trample on God-given rights.

“I just can’t sit by and watch it any more,” Crane said. “That’s why when I hear these guys, these wannabe leaders and politicians like Raphael Warnock, in a sermon no less, making fun of Christians who want to carry a firearm into church, serving a party talking about defunding the police. I mean, it’s like these guys could care less about ‘We the people,’ you and me.”

“I can’t stand to listen to their divisive rhetoric or their policies that destroy prosperity, our freedoms, our liberties, and our ability to protect ourselves,” Crane added.

He concluded, “Here’s the deal. For all of you Georgians out there, and for every American: We are losing this country every single day, one little cut at a time. And we will continue to lose it, it will continue to get worse, these lockdowns, these curfews, these quarantines, you’ll see more and more of it as your freedoms and liberties are stripped away from you if you don’t get involved and get engaged in this fight. Our kids deserve it, future generations deserve it, and we must demand leaders that actually have a backbone, are moral individuals, and who care about ‘We the people.’ We must reject these individuals that are trying to destroy the United States of America. And this guy, I’m telling you … he is bad news.”

The NRA shared video of Crane’s remarks and captioned it, “Watch NRA member and Navy Seal @EliCrane_CEO OBLITERATE Democrat @ReverendWarnock for mocking churchgoers who carry firearms to protect themselves. ‘We must reject these individuals who are trying to destroy the United States of America.'”

Faith Georgia runoff Georgia senate election Intelwars Kelly loeffler Raphael warnock special election

Georgia Democratic Senate candidate says ‘nobody can serve God and the military’ — veterans and Republicans call him out

Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Rev. Raphael Warnock was lambasted by veterans and Republicans this week over comments he made in a 2011 sermon saying Americans cannot serve both God and the military.

Warnock, who serves as the senior pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, made the remarks
during a sermon titled, “When Truth Meets Power.” The sermon paraphrased Matthew 6:24, which states, “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.”

“America, nobody can serve God and the military,” Warnock said, admonishing Americans to turn away from the pursuit of power and wealth and turn to God. “You can’t serve God and money. You cannot serve God and mammon at the same time. America, choose ye this day who you will serve. Choose ye this day.”

“Politicians try to keep their power,” he continued. “Political parties lie in order to keep their power. And church folk, yeah, you too, maneuver … in order to keep your power. And Jesus says, that’s not power. That’s paranoia.”

Warnock, 51, is a civil rights activist. His position at Ebenezer Baptist Church was once held by Martin Luther King Jr.

Warnock’s opponent, Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.), blasted the sermon, accusing Warnock’s sermon of “disparaging the men and women who serve our country & risk their lives to defend freedom.”

She was
joined by other Republicans including Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), a combat veteran who served in the U.S. Army in Iraq and Afghanistan. He said Warnock’s sermon was “an insult to everyone who served” and called on him to withdraw from the race.

More than four dozen Georgia veterans also called on Warnock to suspend his campaign in a statement reported by Fox News.

“Raphael Warnock’s comments about military men and women are despicable and flat-out wrong,” the veterans said. “Here in Georgia, true leaders recognize the service and sacrifice of all who have courageously defended our nation’s freedom.”

They continued, saying it’s “sad to see Raphael Warnock is more interested in insulting and condemning our military than in building communities that support and protect them.”

“We stand together in calling on Raphael Warnock to drop out immediately, and we remain grateful to those who honor our fellow men and women in uniform—and our Creator,” they said.

A spokesman for the Warnock campaign told Fox News that Loeffler and other Republicans were taking Warnock’s sermon out of context.

“This sermon is based on a biblical verse that reads ‘No man can serve two masters… Ye cannot serve God and mammon,’ a biblical term for wealth,” campaign communications director Terrence Clark said. “Reverend Warnock was speaking about the need to commit to moral life before pursuing other priorities. As the video of the congregation’s response makes clear, this is another blatant effort by Kelly Loeffler to take Reverend Warnock’s words completely out of context. Given her own decision to spend her first days in the U.S. Senate profiting off the pandemic, perhaps she should watch the sermon more closely.”

Warnock also responded to Loeffler on social media.

Black pac David Perdue George Soros Georgia Georgia election Georgia runoff Intelwars Jon Ossoff Kelly loeffler Raphael warnock

Group bankrolled by George Soros and Michael Bloomberg pours hundreds of thousands of dollars into Georgia runoff elections

A group funded by liberal billionaires George Soros and Michael Bloomberg has funneled $300,000 into the crucial Georgia runoff elections to support Democratic candidates Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, according to a report from the Washington Free Beacon.

The left-wing billionaires made substantial financial contributions to the Black PAC, the progressive political committee that pushes black voters to the polls. Federal Election Commission records show that the Black PAC spent $300,000 to help Warnock and Ossoff try to win their pivotal runoff elections.

Bloomberg provided $6.32 million to the Black PAC. The Democracy PAC, a super PAC founded by Soros, infused $1.5 million into the Black PAC. According to the latest Federal Election Committee report, the Black PAC raised $23.5 million since January 2019 and spent $12.5 million as of mid-October.

Black Pac, which was founded in 2016, claims there is “little to no justice in the current system” and will “turn out our voters for candidates who work to expand voting rights and access to the ballot–including for the formerly incarcerated.”

In late October, Soros made a last-minute donation of $500,000 to the Black PAC in an attempt to increase turnout among black voters.

Soros dumped nearly $70 million into the 2020 election, including into his left-wing Democracy PAC. The $68.5 Soros spent on the 2020 election is more than triple the amount he paid out in the 2016 presidential election, where he disbursed $22 million.

In September, Bloomberg raised more than $16 million for the nonprofit Florida Rights Restoration Coalition, which would pay the fines of the Florida felons so that they could vote in the 2020 election.

The Senate runoff elections in Georgia will be held on Jan. 5, and there is expected to be tens of millions spent by Democrats and Republicans on the four candidates.

The election will determine which party controls the Senate next year. If the Democrats flip the seats, the Senate’s 100 seats will be evenly split between Republicans and Democrats, meaning the tie-breaking vote would go to the vice president, which may be Kamala Harris.

In the Georgia Senate runoff elections, Democrat Raphael Warnock is squaring off against incumbent Republican Kelly Loeffler, and Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff is attempting to take down incumbent Republican David Perdue.

Campaign 2020 democrat Georgia Georgia runoff Intelwars Racism Raphael warnock

Democrat competing in Georgia runoff told America to ‘repent’ over ‘worship of whiteness,’ supporting Trump

Georgia Democrat Raphael Warnock, who is competing in one of Georgia’s critical runoff elections, claimed in late 2016 that Americans needed to “repent” for supporting President Donald Trump.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, Warnock’s comments while speaking at Atlanta’s Candler School of Theology in October 2016, less than one month before Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.

What did Warnock say?

Not only did Warnock — the senior pastor of the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta — say Americans should “repent” for supporting Trump, but he said they should also repent for America’s “worship of whiteness.”

“Repent” is a religious word that means to turn away from a particular behavior, used most often in reference to sin.

“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.

“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,” he continued.

Later in the sermon, Warnock reiterated, “Repent from the worship of whiteness.”


Warnock: Trump Supporters Needed to ‘Repent’

Anything else?

As the race between Warnock and Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) heats up — and takes on particular importance because control of the Senate hinges on Georgia’s two runoff races — past comments and past associations are coming back to haunt Warnock.

As TheBlaze reported, Warnock worked at a Harlem church that hosted Cuban dictator Fidel Castro in 1995. That church offered Castro the pulpit from which he bashed America.

Meanwhile, Warnock also has a history of bashing police and praising the controversial Jeremiah Wright, who infamously said one time, “God damn America.”

“We celebrate Rev. Wright in the same way that we celebrate the truth-telling tradition of the black church, which, when preachers tell the truth, very often it makes people uncomfortable. And I think the country has been done a disservice by this constant playing over and over again the same soundbites outside of context,” Warnock said of praising Wright when confronted in a 2008 Fox News interview.

Both Georgia runoff races take place on Jan. 5, 2021.

Just one week removed from Election Day, the country has turned its eyes to Georgia where control over the U.S. Senate hinges on two important runoffs, both of which will take place on Jan. 5.

Republicans currently hold Senate seats following the results of the 2020 election and must win at least one of the two Georgia seats — which are currently held by Republican incumbent Sens. David Purdue and Kelly Loeffler — to avoid relinquishing control of the Senate. If Republicans lose both, then the Senate would be split 50-50, essentially giving Democrats control of the Senate because media-declared Vice President-elect Kamala Harris would serve as a tie-breaking vote.

Now, we are getting a better picture of Democrat Raphael Warnock, who is running against Loeffler.

What about Warnock?

Warnock is generating criticism because of past comments and past associations.

According to Fox News, Warnock worked at an Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem when it hosted Cuban dictator Fidel Castro in 1995. Castro gave a speech at the church during which he bashed America. Church attendants reportedly praised Castro, chanting, “Fidel! Fidel! Fidel!”

Loeffler’s campaign said the Castro visit represented yet another example of Warnock’s “radical, far-left, socialist position.”

However, it’s not clear if Warnock, who served as the church’s youth pastor at the time, was in attendance during Castro’s speech. Warnock’s campaign declined to say definitively.

Warnock campaign spokesman Terrence Clark said, “Twenty-five years ago, Reverend Warnock was a youth pastor and was not involved in any decisions at that time.”

What else?

Warnock is also being criticized for anti-police comments and for praising the controversial Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

As Fox News reported, in 2015, Warnock likened police to thugs and “bullies” and claimed police endanger children.

“So, in Ferguson, police power, showing up in a kind of gangsta and thug mentality. You now, you can wear all kinds of colors and be a thug. You can sometimes wear the colors of the state and behave like a thug,” he said.

“We shouldn’t be surprised when we see police officers act like bullies on the street,” Warnock also said.

“It’s children’s day, and we’ve got to lift up our children because our children are in trouble. And they’re often those who are sworn to protect cause more trouble,” he said.

Meanwhile, former Fox News host Greta Van Susteren interviewed Warnock in 2008 during which she asked him if he embraced Jeremiah Wright, who infamously said one time, “God damn America.”

“Do you embrace that? Is that something you would do, sir, in your church?” Van Susteren asked, the Daily Wire reported.

Warnock responded by affirming Wright.

“We celebrate Rev. Wright in the same way that we celebrate the truth-telling tradition of the black church, which, when preachers tell the truth, very often it makes people uncomfortable. And I think the country has been done a disservice by this constant playing over and over again the same soundbites outside of context,” he said.
