On Wednesday, radio host Mark Levin called out Democrats for openly supporting "…anti-semites like Raphael Warnock for the US Senate" adding that it "...portends a dangerous immorality by a party that has a long history of hatred dating back before the Civil War."
The Jewish host of Life, Liberty & Levin host said, "We've now reached a point in our country where the Democrat Party will nominate and support, with the media's backing, anti-Semites like Raphael Warnock for the US Senate."
"In fact, Biden and Harris have campaigned for him and are headed back to Georgia to try and carry him to victory. No criticism. No pushback. Nothing. It's truly shocking," he continued adding that it "...portends a dangerous immorality by a party that has a long history of hatred dating back before the Civil War."
Levin's comments come less than a week before the hotly contested Jan. 5 runoff elections, which will determine the balance of power in the US Senate.
In November, the Jewish Journal noted Warnock’s position on the Jewish state of Israel. "In 2019, Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Reverend Raphael Warnock signed a letter comparing Israel to apartheid South Africa."
Fox News reported that Warnock is listed as a delegation member on a Progressive National Baptist resolution that called on the United States to cease all military aid to Israel and urged Israel to stop building "…illegal Israeli settlements, checkpoints and apartheid roads in the occupied Palestinian territories."
Writing on "The Jewish Left's Warnock Whitewash," Rabbi Yaakov Menken said in Newsweek "Many on the Left in the Jewish community have reduced anti-Semitism to a partisan weapon. According to them, whether an individual's statements about Jews or Israel are bigoted depends entirely upon that individual's political affiliation—or worse, his or her race."
He slammed Georgia senate candidate Raphael Warnock, Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez among other prominent leftists. Menken took aim at Jewish leftists who block criticism of these anti-semitic politicians, saying "These activists were not trying to make a logical argument, but to serve as Jewish shields to block well-deserved criticism of AOC's disgraceful statements."
Menken, who the Managing Director of the Coalition for Jewish Values, went on to say "In a sermon, Warnock claimed that Israeli soldiers 'shoot down unarmed Palestinian sisters and brothers like birds of prey.' This false charge not only slanders the army that leads the world in avoiding civilian casualties, and the country that has saved countless Arab lives across the Middle East with its advanced medical technology.
Rabbi Menken wrote "It also diminishes the murder of Esther Horgan, killed by a terrorist last week while jogging, making it and similar crimes appear somehow less barbaric and inhuman than they obviously are. That is the loathing towards Israel that Warnock heaved upon his congregation."
Menken added that "The Coalition for Jewish Values, which I serve as managing director, sent both the Warnock campaign and the Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA) a letter requesting evidence that Warnock had abandoned these repugnant views before running for office—and was not merely saying different things to different audiences to fool those willing to be duped."
Menken continued, "Our letter, which the Rabbinic leaders of Georgia's two largest Orthodox congregations both signed, pointed out that Warnock had not merely bent the truth. He, as a spiritual leader, had misused his pulpit to bear false witness."
Jewish News Syndicate (JNS) reported that Warnock had defended Wright in 2008, and said, "...that we celebrate the truth-telling tradition of the black church, which when preachers tell the truth, very often it makes people uncomfortable." JNS added that in March, Wright said shortly after Barack Obama was elected, that "them Jews" were preventing Obama from stating "anti-Israel" remarks.
Last week, The Coalition for Jewish Values (JDCA), accused Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Rev. Raphael Warnock of "antisemitic rhetoric." The group, which represents "…over 1500 traditional rabbis in matters of public policy," also accused liberal Jews from the (JDCA) of trying to "whitewash" Warnock's views by circulating a petition claiming that he was the victim of "baseless claims and attacks."
Rabbi Menken concluded his article by challenging Georgia voters. "It is up to the good citizens of Georgia to see past the whitewash. To use a person's own minority status to shield him or her from the consequences of hate speech is identity politics in its most malignant form. Warnock repeatedly made anti-Semitic statements, for which he cannot be given a pass due to his progressive politics or his racial identity. The push for true equality and tolerance demands no less."
