He has been accused of making anti-Semitic remarks. His wife alleged that he ran over her foot during a domestic dispute, and he has refused to answer questions about the incident. He uses the Bible to justify abortion and has claimed that Christians can’t “serve God and the military.” Child abuse is alleged to have occurred at one of his camps.
Yet, the activist media refuse to cover the numerous controversies surrounding Georgia Senate candidate Pastor Raphael Warnock.
Media Outlets Ignore Warnock’s Flaws
With about a week before the red-hot runoff elections on Jan. 5, all eyes are on the Peach State. Several polls show Warnock is tied with his opponent, Senator Kelly Loeffler. At least one survey puts the Republican candidate seven points ahead, but the race is still too close to call.
The stakes are high because this race will determine which party controls the U.S. Senate next year. The election is already set for record turnout. But unless you’re a conservative, you have likely not heard a peep about Warnock’s problematic past.
On the other hand, establishment media outlets had no issue with covering potential flaws in Loeffler’s campaign. CNN published at least two articles criticizing the incumbent. Typical headlines: “Loeffler condemns White supremacist after taking photo with him” and “GOP senator in critical race refuses to answer question 9 times.”
MSNBC slammed Loeffler for saying that she’s “more conservative than Attila the Hun.” It seems the alleged news outlet doesn’t recognize hyperbole.
Purported journalists are so desperate to protect Warnock that they are covering up one of the shadiest controversies. The Washington Free Beacon reported that a kid who attended a church camp overseen by the pastor experienced horrific abuse at the hands of counselors.
Anthony Washington filed a lawsuit against Warnock’s church in 2003, alleging that the camp’s counselors tossed urine on him and locked him outside of his cabin overnight. Even worse, the pastor is accused of trying to obstruct a child abuse investigation into the camp.
From the Free Beacon:
“Warnock has faced scrutiny over his 2002 arrest for allegedly obstructing a child abuse investigation by Maryland State Police that centered on the camp’s treatment of children. Washington’s account is buttressed by records from the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, obtained by the Free Beacon earlier this month, which indicated that campers were routinely left unsupervised; staffers were not subject to required criminal background check; and at least five cases of child abuse or neglect were brought against the camp’s director, who was ultimately forced to resign.”
Will the Activist Media Swing This Election?
Some have expressed fears that Georgia’s runoffs will not be free and clear. They are concerned that these races have the same issues as the November election, which is still being challenged by President Donald Trump.
But regardless of what one thinks of the presidential race, one thing is clear: The left-wing activist media ran a full-on influence campaign throughout this election season, and they are doing the same with the Senate contests. For this reason, they refuse to report on Warnock’s alleged misdeeds.
We can all imagine how activist media outlets would respond if Warnock had an “R” next to his name. Each of these sordid facts would be given wall-to-wall and front-page coverage by activist reporters looking to swing the election to his opponent.
