Raphael Warnock is a left-wing radical with a dangerous agenda for our state and nation. He unapologetically attacks law enforcement, supports trillion-dollar tax hikes and job killing regulations, and embraces anti-American values that undermine the U.S. Constitution and our way of life.
On January 5th, Georgia voters will ultimately determine control of the United States Senate and chart the course for America’s future. The fate of Georgia and the fate of the United States will be on the ballot, and we must stand united to stop the most radical candidate in the country. We must reject Raphael Warnock and his dangerous agenda before it’s too late.
Radical Raphael Warnock was educated by Marxists, praised by socialists, and even welcomed Communist leader, Fidel Castro, to his church. He defended Jeremiah Wright’s “God Damn America” agenda, decried the right to life and the 2nd Amendment, and proudly touts his support of organizations that want to destroy the nuclear family and undermine our longstanding support of Israel.
Raphael Warnock was identified as a pastor at Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem, New York. In 1997, the New York Times identified Warnock as "The Rev. Raphael Warnock, assistant pastor at Abyssinian, one of Harlem’s leading churches."

In A Sermon, Warnock Called For A Two-State Solution. “The administration opened up the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem. Standing there the president’s family and the few mealy mouth evangelical preachers, who are responsible for the mess that we found ourselves in both there and here. Misquoting and misinterpreting the scripture. Talking about peace meanwhile young Palestinian brothers and sisters who are struggling for their vary lives, struggling for water. Struggling for their human dignity stood up in a nonviolent protest. Saying that if we are going to die, we are going to die struggling. Yes there may have been some folks who are violent but we outta know how that works out. We know what it’s like to stand up, have a peaceful demonstration and have the media focus on a few violent uprisings. But you have to look at those Palestinian sisters and brothers who are struggling for their human dignity. They have a right to self-determination. They have a right to breathe free. We need a two-state solution where all of God's children can live together.”

Warnock Criticized The Israeli Government For “Shooting Down Unarmed Palestinian Sisters And Brother Like Birds Of Prey During Their Protests Of The U.S. Embassy. “We saw the government of Israel shoot down unarmed Palestinian sisters and brothers like birds of prey. And I don’t care who does it, it’s wrong to shoot down God's children. And it’s not more anti-semitic for me to say that for me to say that black lives matter. Palestinian lives matter.”

Warnock Referred To Jesus As A Palestinian Peasant. “Do they know that Palestinian peasant that said he who lives by the sword, dies by the sword? Nothing will separate us.
