Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) took to task Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock for their political motives and agendas.
In an interview with Fox Business, Blackburn was asked what was at stake if Republican incumbents Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue lost.
The interviewer, Maria Bartiromo, also mentioned Andrew Yang’s plans to move to help with the general election runoff efforts. Yang also encouraged his followers to do likewise. While Yang later clarified that he wasn’t moving to vote because he already did so in New York’s general election, others have openly encouraged individuals to move to Georgia temporarily just to vote.
“Well, you know, they kind of got their hands slapped on this. Telling people to move in, claim Georgia residency, and vote,” stated Blackburn. “Here’s what we know: Chuck Schumer is definitely on the ballot in Georgia. His agenda: first we take Georgia, then we change America.”
Then, Blackburn emphasized the two main issues that each Senate candidate presents.
“These two Democratic Senate nominees are the two most radical, leftist Senate nominees I have ever seen. You have an Ossoff: a trust fund socialist who has been on the payroll of a Chinese Communist Party-owned company and failed to report it until he got caught.”
Ossoff served as the CEO of a London-based investigative documentary filmmaking company that was paid at least $5,000 in the past two years by PCCW Media Limited, a Chinese business chaired by communist party supporter Richard Li. Ossoff failed to report these assets when he initially filed his financial disclosures in May.
Blackburn gave both Democratic candidates equal attention, calling out Warnock for his relationship with President Barack Obama’s controversial preacher, Jeremiah Wright.
“You have Warnock who is a mentee of Jeremiah Wright. And of course, we all remember Jeremiah Wright is the one who said he was hopeful that God would not bless America, that God would damn America. That is not the people of Georgia.”
Warnock recently denied that he shared the views expressed in Wright’s anti-Semitic comments.
However, Bishop Aubrey Shines told The Tennessee Star that Warnock’s alignment with Black Liberation Theology could preclude Warnock from sharing his true beliefs.
“The whole premise of Black Liberation Theology hinges around denial. They don’t believe they owe the White man anything – and if you adhere to these Western White principles, then they don’t owe you anything.”
Warnock studied under the late Dr. James Cone, the father of Black Liberation Theology criticized for his anti-Semitic remarks and Marxist persuasions. On The John Fredericks Show, Shines explained that this theology inherently goes against Warnock’s own statements.
“Warnock is against [American] principles. He’s a Marxist. He doesn’t believe that God really created everybody individually. He’s a group guy: [he says] let’s put these colors in separate buckets and judge them by their group identity.”
The runoff election is January 5th. December 7th is the final day to register to vote – an estimated 23,000 additional individuals will be eligible to vote in this upcoming election.
