Former Child Attendee Details Abuse at Warnock Church Camp
Former Child Attendee Details Abuse at Warnock Church Camp
There’s nothing like an upcoming election to spur the release of a constant wave of opposition research against one’s opponent. And that’s what far-left zealot and Georgia’s senatorial candidate Raphael Warnock has experienced relentlessly in the past weeks.
On the heels of the release of a video recording where Warnock’s former wife—they divorced earlier this year—accused her then-husband of running over her foot with his car during an argument back in March. In case you missed it, here’s her allegation, and his response to it:
Suffice it to say, he sounds like a real gem, and exactly like the kind of guy who would embrace the destructive ideology that is Marxism and, by extension, disdain for America and the freedoms she offers.
Among the indignities 12-year-old Anthony Washington endured at the church camp overseen by Reverend Raphael Warnock: counselors who tossed urine on him and locked him outside his cabin overnight.”
“Washington, now 30, recounted the events in an interview with the Washington Free Beacon and said his experience at the camp resulted in a 2003 lawsuit that ended two years later, when Washington says he and his family received a large financial settlement.”
“The Free Beacon reached out to Washington and members of his family because his name appears on a lawsuit filed against Warnock, the camp, and several of the counselors.”
Now let that dehumanizing visual sink in for a moment and imagine Mr. Warnock near any seat of power.
Now I realize that the accusations are not lobbed directly at Mr. Warnock, but rather counselors (who’s ages at the time are in dispute) employed at the camp. And I think it’s fair, upon an initial reading, to give the man the benefit of the doubt and that he’s not fully responsible for the behavior of others if he were unaware of what was occurring on his watch.
That said: the buck stops with him, regardless of the ages of the perpetrators of the abuse. And it’s he who’s yet again finding himself the focus of further child abuse allegations stemming from his time running Camp Farthest Out, this time in detail.
Mr. Washington’s account of the 2002 events provides the first direct insight into the alleged abuse and neglect that transpired at Camp Farthest Out, which Warnock oversaw as senior pastor of Maryland’s Douglas Memorial Community church, and raises new questions for the Democrat, who is currently vying for a Senate seat in Georgia.”
Why do I say “further” allegations of child abuse? Because Warnock was charged with obstructing a 2002 investigation into child abuse at the same camp where Mr. Washington alleges he was mistreated, what one could argue is direct complicity in child abuse:
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.”
“Warnock served as senior pastor at Baltimore’s Douglas Memorial Community Church from 2001 until around 2005. His job included overseeing the expansion of the church’s sleepaway camp, Camp Farthest Out, which served inner city children.”
Soooooo…he undoubtedly knew exactly what was transpiring on his watch because there was a criminal investigation, and thus we can hereby revoke our previous benefit-of-the-doubt grant. The victims in 2002, of course, were also children. Which thus lends credence—and lays responsibility directly with Mr. Warnock—regarding the allegations voiced by Mr. Washington, who sued and eventually settled his lawsuit. Which shoots plausible deniability on Warnock’s behalf right in his proverbial foot.
Which makes him in a clear danger to the safety of children in my oh-so-humble opinion.
And there’s little else that motivates voters to punish a candidate more than alleged spousal and child abuse. And yes, we can assume all of these newly-unearthed stories are emanating from the Kelly Loeffler For Senate Camp. Nevertheless: two strikes against an already-questionable candidate. Just ask serial-philanderer, veteran-basher, and leftist media darling Cal Cunningham, who was rebuked by North Carolinians last month in a race pollsters (cough cough) predicted he would win.
Mr. Warnock is a train-wreck. From his embrace of Jeremiah Wright’s anti-American rants, to his alleged mistreatment of his former wife and her allegations that he’s hiding who he really is, to his arrest for child abuse investigation obstruction, to these latest unearthed allegations of child abuse at the hands of camp counselors who worked under him, if even half of the accusations are true, there is no way Mr. Warnock should ever be walking through the halls of our U.S. Senate, let alone wielding the power to make laws for the rest of us while flouting them himself. We have enough of those types already, thank you very much; you can go now.
I’m all for forgiveness after repenting for one’s sins, but at this point, if what his former wife alleges against Raphael Warnock is accurate—and we have no reason to believe it’s not given his reported history of obstructing the investigation into, of all things, child abuse—it seems Mr. Warnock—who by all accounts looks eerily like Georgia’s version of the grifting Al Sharpton, not to mention serial child-sniffer and corruptocrat Joe Biden—hasn’t changed his spots.
And with that, were I the opponent of Raphael Warnock, I’d run attack ads against him 24/7, relentlessly, without mercy, until he crawls back to whatever hole he climbed out of.
And he can take the equally cringey, and equally radical, Jon Ossoff with him.
Let’s hope Georgia voters agree, and can successfully overwhelm the obvious election fraud machine—and its perpetrators and their hidden boxes of ballots—that has infiltrated their state.
