Georgia Dem Senate Candidate’s Religious ‘Mentor’ Is an Anti-White Lunatic

By Conservatives Journal

Georgia Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate, Raphael Warnock, has praised his religious “mentor,” Dr. James Hal Cone, as a “poignant and powerful voice” of high “spiritual magnitude.”

That’s not exactly how most people would describe Dr. Cone.

Cone has embraced and defended Rev. Jeremiah Wright, whose “God damn America” speech proved to be too much even for Barack Obama. But Cone has also argued that white Christians are “satanic” and advocated for the “destruction of everything white” in society.

Washington Examiner:
The candidate’s ties to radical theologians, including Rev. Jeremiah Wright, now threaten to complicate his candidacy in a hotly contested Senate race that could tip the balance of the upper chamber. Cone’s divisive rhetoric, and Warnock’s subsequent praise for him, may pose new challenges for Warnock, a political unknown until earlier this year. Warnock’s public defense of Wright’s “God Damn America” speech in 2008—which President Obama denounced as offensive after his own ties to Wright came to light—has also come under scrutiny. Wright has also credited Cone’s work for inspiring his own religious philosophy.

Warnock’s mentor’s black nationalist rhetoric could very well sink his candidacy. He has cited Cone’s words and ideas numerous times.

Cone, who is widely considered the “father of black theology,” outlined his controversial views in his 1970 book A Black Theology of Liberation.

There, he argues that “American white theology is a theology of the Antichrist” and advocates for a new “black theology” that will usher in a revolution to eradicate whiteness from society.

Cone argues not only for black separatism but, apparently, for the eventual self-destruction of the white race.

“There will be no peace in America until white people begin to hate their whiteness, asking from the depths of their being: ‘How can we become black?’” Cone wrote.

Warnock cited the work over a dozen times in the chapters and footnotes of his own 2013 book The Divided Mind of the Black Church.

Warnock is running against incumbent Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler in one of the two January 5 runoffs for Georgia Senate seats. She was appointed to the Senate last year when Johnny Isaacson resigned due to ill health. The other race features Republican David Perdue running for re-election against Democrat John Ossoff.

Warnock is a political rookie and little was known about him prior to his candidacy. Georgians are getting to know him a lot better now.

“The white God is an idol created by racists, and we blacks must perform the iconoclastic task of smashing false idols,” wrote Cone. “White religionists are not capable of perceiving the blackness of God, because their satanic whiteness is a denial of the very essence of divinity.”

The book argued that the purpose of black theology is the “destruction of everything white.”

Americans were surprised that Barack Obama would sit in the pews for 20 years listening to Rev. Wright spew his anti-white, ani-American hate. But Obama was looking to authenticate his “blackness” by attending Trinity Baptist Church, a fabulously well-connected congregation both politically and culturally. He said in his Philadelphia speech on race that he didn’t agree with Wright and the press dropped the subject like a hot potato.

Is it fair to tar Rev. Warnock with the hateful words of his “mentor”? Unequivocally yes. It was Warnock who has praised Cone’s leadership and inspiration. Cone was Warnock’s academic advisor at Union Theological Seminary — a close personal and intellectual relationship that apparently continued after he becomes pastor of the Ebeneezer Baptist Church in Atlanta.

Besides, if Republicans can be skewered for their questionable associations, why not the Democrat Warnock?

It’s unknown just how much Warnock agrees with Cone on and we probably will never know. Much more will be forthcoming once Warnock’s sermons are examined, but the media will declare the anti-white rhetoric as a “non-issue” and refuse to cover it.

Freedom of the press has its perks, to be sure.

Mentor of GA Dem Who Could Flip Senate: 'Everything White' Has To Be Destroyed

By C. Douglas Golden
Published November 13, 2020 at 7:55am

Of the two Georgia runoffs, it was supposed to be the easier race for the Democrats to win.

Democratic candidate Raphael Warnock is the senior pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, the same historic congregation where the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. once preached. He gave the benediction at former President Barack Obama’s second inaugural. He came to political prominence as an advocate for Medicaid expansion in Georgia — a good entry point, considering the Democrats believe health care policy to be a winning issue for them.

His opponent, GOP Sen. Kelly Loeffler, isn’t even particularly beloved among many Republicans, who view her as emblematic of everything lukewarm and dysfunctional about the party’s establishment wing.

Previously a business executive, Loeffler was appointed by Gov. Matt Kemp against the wishes of the Trump administration, which preferred Rep. Doug Collins to replace Sen. Johnny Isakson after he resigned for health reasons.

It got bad enough that, when running against Collins in a general election race that was essentially a primary, Loeffler took to claiming she was “more conservative than Attila the Hun.”

This is seldom the kind of thing that needs to be said by someone with conservative bona fides to speak for them, particularly not in such grimace-emoji terms. (Collins, who responded that Loeffler “is so uncomfortable discussing conservative values that she hired an actor to make grunting noises rather than do it herself,” also acidly noted that “Attila the Hun was an open-borders globalist who killed christians and practiced postnatal abortion.” Loeffler has faced questions as to whether her donations and the WNBA team she owns, the Atlanta Dream, have benefited Planned Parenthood.)

While Loeffler defeated Collins in the de facto primary that was the Nov. 3 general election — Georgia’s election rules allowed for multiple candidates from the same party to face each other in the election to finish off the remaining two years of Isakson’s term — it was unclear she’d be able to unite Republicans behind her the same way, say, Attila managed to unite the Huns and Ostrogoths. The Holy Roman Empire, in the personage of Warnock, seemed a safer bet.

In the weeks since the election, however, Warnock has been put in the position of defending the indefensible.

Along with allegations he tampered with a child abuse investigation at a church-run camp in 2002, Warnock’s praise for Jeremiah Wright’s infamous “God Damn America” sermon (I know! He’s back!) and remarks made by a radical black theologian described by Warnock as his “mentor” have come back to haunt him.

According to The Washington Free Beacon, James Hal Cone was Warnock’s academic adviser at Union Theological Seminary. Warnock said this of Cone in his 2018 eulogy for the preacher: “How blessed we are that someone of the spiritual magnitude and power and commitment of Dr. James Hal Cone passed our way.”

That high spiritual magnitude manifested itself in calling white Christians “satanic” and advocating for the “destruction of everything white” in society.

In his 1970 book “A Black Theology of Liberation,” Cone wrote that “American white theology is a theology of the Antichrist.”

“God is black,” he wrote, and “has nothing to do with the God worshiped in white churches.”

“The white God is an idol created by racists, and we blacks must perform the iconoclastic task of smashing false idols,” Warnock’s mentor asserted. “White religionists are not capable of perceiving the blackness of God, because their satanic whiteness is a denial of the very essence of divinity.”

“If there is one brutal fact that the centuries of white oppression have taught blacks, it is that whites are incapable of making any valid judgements about human existence,” Cone continued. “The goal of black theology is the destruction of everything white, so that blacks can be liberated from alien gods.”

The book veered from the theological on occasion, with Cone seeming to confront whiteness at a more earthly level.

“There will be no peace in America until white people begin to hate their whiteness, asking from the depths of their being: ‘How can we become black?'” he wrote.

Another section: “We have reached our limit of tolerance, and if it means death with dignity, or life with humiliation, we choose the former. And if that is the choice, we will take out some honkies with us.”

A true understanding of Christianity, Cone wrote, begins with the knowledge that we must “[deny] whiteness as a proper form of human existence and [affirm] blackness as God’s intention for humanity.”

But, again, this led to more earthly goals, including overthrowing white society.

“With the assurance that God is on our side, we can begin to make ready for the inevitable — the decisive encounter between white and black existence. White appeals to ‘wait and talk it over’ are irrelevant when children are dying and men and women are being tortured,” Cone wrote.

“We will not let whitey cool this one with his pious love ethic but will seek to enhance our hostility, bringing it to its full manifestation.”

Warnock cited the book “over a dozen” times in his 2013 work, “The Divided Mind of the Black Church,” according to The Free Beacon.

The Democratic candidate’s ties to Cone surfaced after his praise for Wright’s 2003 sermon — a sticking point of the first Obama presidential campaign, given that Wright was the candidate’s pastor at the time.

The sermon — officially titled “Confusing God and Government” — included claims that the U.S. government knew the Japanese would attack Pearl Harbor and “lied about inventing the HIV virus as a means of genocide against people of color.”

It’s best known for the passage where Wright, in high dudgeon, declares, “not ‘God bless America,’ God damn America! That’s in the Bible, for killing innocent people. God damn America for treating her citizens as less than human. God damn America as long as she keeps trying to act like she is God and she is supreme!”

According to National Review, Warnock, in a 2013 speech at the Yale Divinity School, said that part of the sermon was “extracted from its theological and rhetorical context and looped to the point of ad nauseam.”

Instead, he said, Wright’s words were in line with “black prophetic preaching,” where “preachers are expected, indeed encouraged to speak the truth, tell Pharaoh and tell it like it is with clarity, creativity and passion.”

In 2008, according to the Cleveland Jewish News, Warnock also appeared on Fox News to praise the “social transformation that’s been the hallmark of Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s ministry.”

“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,” he added, calling Wright a “preacher and a prophet.”

Loeffler accused Warnock of supporting Wright’s anti-Semitic tendencies; Warnock hit back in a Thursday T-ball interview with MSNBC but still wouldn’t answer directly when asked if Wright was anti-Semitic.

“I know Rev. Wright. I’m not an anti-Semite, I’ve never defended anti-Semitic comments from anyone, and Kelly Loeffler knows better,” Warnock said Thursday. “She is trying to engage in the same old Washington politics of division and distraction.”

The problem is that knowing Wright also means knowing his less-savory tendencies, best exemplified in a 2009 interview with the Hampton Roads, Virginia, Daily Press.

Asked if he’d talked to Obama since his former parishioner had become president, Wright said, “Them Jews ain’t going to let him talk to me. I told my baby daughter that he’ll talk to me in five years when he’s a lame duck, or in eight years when he’s out of office.”

“They will not let him to talk to somebody who calls a spade what it is. … I said from the beginning: He’s a politician; I’m a pastor. He’s got to do what politicians do.”

Meanwhile, on Israel, Wright said, “Ethnic cleansing is going on in Gaza. Ethnic cleansing [by] the Zionist is a sin and a crime against humanity, and they don’t want Barack talking like that because that’s anti-Israel.”

Given that Wright has mostly shuffled off into intellectual obscurity, the Daily Press interview remains the last time he’s appeared on the mainstream political radar.

I’m guessing for the next few weeks, Warnock will pretend he never read that, the same way he’ll pretend he never read that august tome by the man he calls his “mentor,” “A Black Theology of Liberation.” I mean, sure, he cited it, but that was probably one of his research people who looked into it. Any follow-up questions? Yes? Whoa, gee, look at the time …

Warnock will also disregard an open letter he signed in 2019, unearthed by Jewish Insider, in which the signatories agreed Israeli tactics against Palestinians “seem to have been borrowed and perfected from other previous oppressive regimes” and said it was “reminiscent of the military occupation of Namibia by apartheid South Africa.”

A Warnock spokesman walked back the statements, saying he was referring to “settlement activity” and didn’t believe in the more inflammatory language.

But then there was inflammatory language of his own, like when he said in a 2018 sermon that “we saw the government of Israel shoot down unarmed Palestinian sisters and brothers like birds of prey.”

As Wikipedia might put it, “[citation very much needed]” on that one.

These aren’t legitimate concerns to the Democratic challenger — or, at least, he’s pretending they aren’t.

Instead, Warnock told MSNBC this is all about the “politics of division and distraction” and then segued to his personal brand of the “politics of division and distraction.”

“[Loeffler] can’t explain why she is for getting rid of health care in the middle of a pandemic,” Warnock said in the Tuesday appearance. “It’s Rev. Raphael Warnock who’s running for the U.S. Senate, and if she wants to know what I think, she can find me in the Scripture. ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ And for me, in practical terms, that means you don’t get rid of health care in the middle of a pandemic.”

Whatever you might think of reductionist, fear-mongering language such as a candidate “getting rid of health care in the middle of a pandemic,” this isn’t garden-variety “division and distraction.”

Our country — indeed, the world — has seen a resurgence of anti-Semitism on an unprecedented scale. Warnock can’t even say if a man who declares “them Jews” wouldn’t let him talk to the president (and has never disavowed that comment) is an anti-Semite. His fulsome praise of Wright and Cone came long after their respective oeuvres were well-known to anyone who wanted to look.

Warnock cannot pretend that progressive voters from Atlanta are going to carry the state. Instead, given the red-tinged purple-ish nature of Georgia, he has to convince conservatives and independents he’s a unifying candidate who’s trying to keep the mean old rich woman from snatching their health care away.

That’s not going to work in a year when the wounds of our division cleave so deeply that riots and violence over issues of race, identity and culture seem like an anodyne occurrence.

Remember, this was supposed to be the easier one. According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the first polling by a Republican firm showed Loeffler with a 1-point advantage over Warnock with a 2.6 percent margin of error, 49 percent to 48 percent. That same group found Sen. David Perdue with a 4-point lead over challenger Jon Ossoff with the same margin of error. (The poll was conducted by Remington Research Group on Nov. 8 and 9 and among 1,450 likely runoff election voters.)

You might remember Ossoff as the man who almost won a 2017 special election in Georgia that became a basket into which Democrats, recently stung by their loss to Trump, dropped a not-insignificant amount of eggs. Ossoff disappointed then and he’s disappointed now.

He’s a political first-round draft pick who continues to underperform three years into his pro career — but not by enough to let the team cut bait. He’s like the Sam Darnold of high-level federal politics. Lose this one and the Democrats are looking for any other mildly unobjectionable young white man who can reasonably be marketed as empathetic.

At least Ossoff doesn’t have to live down what Warnock does, however.

Kelly Loeffler might not be Attila the Hun. She doesn’t have to be — not when her opponent is a vigorous apologist for two of the most extreme voices in radical black theology.

The choices between bad and worse political candidates seem apparent here. That's a false set of choices so don't let that fool you, there's another way: that of the National Alliance's program.

Very few will have the wit and courage to follow the path of Cosmotheism.

You're correct. At this point, very few is what we can get. As time, persistence, and aggressive outreach efforts pay off, we may see more interest in us. And if we're true to our Cosmotheist principles, we should win over those who can see the rest of the system collapsing around them as we build our new order. Dr. Pierce spent decades building us up, showing that it can be done.

And as for courage, when each of us shows this, as Dr. Pierce did, others may also be emboldened to also be as courageous in our stance as we are. Be the example we want others to follow! That's something each of us can do on a daily basis.
