Raphael Warnock is one of two Democrats in Georgia running for Senate. His senatorial campaign continues to be marred by controversial past rhetoric. Just a few examples include Warnock’s defense of Jeremiah Wright, his claims that Americans can’t serve the Lord and the military, and his calls for the U.S. to atone for a supposed “worship of whiteness.”
Sen. Kelly Loeffler, the GOP incumbent running against Warnock, has repeatedly held him accountable for these statements and several others. Loeffler, while debating Warnock earlier in December, also urged him to disavow Marxism, yet Warnock wouldn’t do it.
Now, Breitbart News confirms that even more troubling rhetoric from Warnock just resurfaced. This rhetoric includes now-deleted Twitter posts from 2017 in which Warnock disparages “white Christians” who reside in Alabama.
More Radical Rhetoric from Warnock
Loeffler has deemed her election opponent as “Radical Liberal Raphael Warnock.” Thus far, this appears to be sticking; Warnock is down several points in his poll against Loeffler. Furthermore, the Georgia Democrat is now under fire for a 2017 post he made about “white Christians” who live in Alabama, during the state’s special election three years ago.

Warnock declared in his since-removed post that the “average atheist” possessed greater virtue than “the white Christians of Alabama.” He then followed up his post by hashtagging then-candidate Republican Roy Moore.
Additional posts from Warnock’s account demonized law enforcement officials and Trump supporters. The Georgia Democrat has not responded to questions about why his post regarding white, Alabama-based Christians is now deleted.
A Recap on Warnock’s Rhetoric
This Georgia Democrat has a laundry list of radical and racially-charged rhetoric. Aside from denigrating military members and police officers, Warnock once claimed that the opioid crisis is only an issue in the U.S. because it claims mostly white and suburban lives.
We had a GREAT event at Adventure Outdoors with @TravisTritt yesterday. I’m proud to have his support and he’s exactly right: Now is not the time to relax.

Warnock also believes, per his own writings, that Marxism is a positive ideology that advances the development of African-American theology while keeping black pastors in check. The Georgia Democrat furthermore declared that Fidel Castro left behind a “complex” legacy while downplaying Castro’s massive human rights violations.
All things considered, Warnock’s dismissal of white Christians in Alabama is on-brand with the manner of rhetoric he’s habitually espoused over the years.
