The more we learn about Georgia Senate candidate Raphael Warnock, the more extreme he is. Warnock says that he is not anti-Semitic even though he is a friend of Obama’s pastor Jeremiah Wright.
He has defended Wright’s anti-Semitic remarks and Pastor Warnock’s church had hosted Cuban dictator, Fidel Castro.
Now, he has to defend himself for associating with his mentor, radical theologian James Cone, who says that he is against Satanic whiteness.
If you are judged by the company you keep, how do you rate someone who associates with Reverend Write, Fidel Castro and James Cone? If he isn’t an anti-Semite, he will certainly do until one comes along.
Cone has called for the destruction of everything white in society. Warnock has praised Cone as a “poignant and powerful voice” of high “spiritual magnitude.”
Because blacks have come to know themselves as black, and because that blackness is the cause of their own love of themselves and hatred of whiteness, the blackness of God is key to knowledge of God. The blackness of God, and everything implied by it in a racist society, is the heart of the black theology doctrine of God. There is no place in black theology for a colorless God in a society where human beings suffer precisely because of their color. The black theologian must reject any conception of God which stifles black self-determination by picturing God as a God of all peoples. Either God is identified with the oppressed to the point that their experience becomes God’s experience, or God is a God of racism.The goal of black theology is the destruction of everything white, so that blacks can be liberated from alien gods… If whites were really serious about their radicalism in regard to the black revolution and its theological implications in America, they would keep silent and take instructions from blacks. Only blacks can speak about God in relationship to their liberation. And those who wish to join us in this divine work must be willing to lose their white identity — indeed, destroy it.
Cone does not rule out violence to achieve his goals:
“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… The black experience is the feeling one has when attacking the enemy of black humanity by throwing a Molotov cocktail into a white-owned building and watching it go up in flames. We know, of course, that getting rid of evil takes something more than burning down buildings, but one must start somewhere.”
These are all things that Warnock represents but now he claims that even though he defended Wright and Cone, he himself is not a bigot, even though he does defend the likes of Rev Wright, Castro and Cone.
If you believe that, I have a bridge I could sell you cheap.
