Raphael Warnock makes his third appearance as Ass of the Week. This time, Warnock wins the prize for his labeling of Israel as an “oppressive” regime. Star Parker of The Boston Herald reports:
What would our nation look like if every day, every American — of every background and ethnicity — were to wake up with the conviction that they are 100% responsible for the circumstances of their lives?
Too many in our country are paying a great price by listening to politicians on the left who are telling them the opposite.
Consider the Rev. Dr. Raphael Warnock, who is now running as a Democrat in one of the U.S. Senate runoff elections in Georgia.
Warnock is a poster child of the left, which embraces the view that the world is unfair, controlled by racists and exploiters.
And for some reason, Warnock, like so many of this point of view, chooses to zero in on Israel, the very model of success through personal responsibility, as a problem rather than a solution.
Just last year, after visiting Israel, he affixed his signature to a Group Pilgrimage Statement on Israel and Palestine.
That statement identifies Israel as an “oppressive” regime, accuses Israel of segregation, speaks of militarization “reminiscent of the military occupation of Namibia by apartheid South Africa” and of “excessive use of force” by Israel in Gaza.
These total distortions of the truth in service of a left-wing political agenda should be a wake-up call for those thinking of casting their vote for this individual.
Regarding the reality of Israel, we can turn to the nonpartisan organization Freedom House in Washington, D.C., which annually rates 210 nations around the world as being “free,” “partly free” or “not free.”
Israel is the only nation in the Middle East rated “free.”
But Warnock and his colleagues ignore oppression throughout the region and only choose to attack the one country that is free.
