Politifact Fact Check: Ossoff And Warnock Aren’t Radical
Politifact and their fact checks. According to Politifact’s live fact checks of President Trump’s speech, GA Senate candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock are just nice misunderstood middle of the road Senate candidates.
In Valdosta, Trump said the GOP Senators are running against "radical Ossoff and Raphael Warnock" and "they're the most extreme far-left candidates in the history of our country." Pants on Fire! https://t.co/Og6jV9kVCV— PolitiFact (@PolitiFact) December 6, 2020
Politifact was kept super busy writing “Pants on Fire!” fact check tweets. Funny thing is, a majority of them are…WRONG.
But let’s get back to their breathless assertion that Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock aren’t radical. Evidently is ISN’T radical for those two to believe that Israel is bad and Palestine needs to be recognized as a country or something.
Just after the U.S. Embassy was opened in Jerusalem, Warnock had this to say during one of his sermons.
“Standing there [were] the president’s family and a few mealy-mouthed evangelical preachers who are responsible for the mess that we found ourselves in, both there and here — misquoting and misinterpreting the Scripture, talking about peace.”
Warnock went on to compare the struggle for Palestinian rights with the Black Lives Matter movement. “Meanwhile, young Palestinian sisters and brothers, who are struggling for their very lives, struggling for water and struggling for their human dignity stood up in a non-violent protest, saying, ‘If we’re going to die, we’re going to die struggling.’ And yes, there may have been some folk who were violent, but we oughta know how that works out,” Warnock said. “We know what it’s like to stand up and have a peaceful demonstration and have the media focus on a few violent uprisings. But you have to look at those Palestinian sisters and brothers, who are struggling for their human dignity and they have a right to self-determination, they have a right to breathe free.”
And then he went on to promote the radical unworkable 2-state solution. But NOW, when he wants to be elected, suddenly he’s singing a different tune with the help of lots of radicals coming to his defense. He can say all the politically correct things NOW, but his past statements regarding Israel, foreign policy, and domestic policy – especially regarding our police, show us exactly who he is.
Yes, Warnock and Ossoff BOTH want to defund the police. They are just using pretty sounding words to hide their real agenda. REFORM and DEMILITARIZE the police do end up being the same thing, defund.
““No, the answer is not to defund police. The answer is to reform police. And the answer is to demilitarize police. Far too many local police departments are heavily equipped with armored vehicles and military equipment, and when all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail,” Ossoff said.”
Warnock wants to “reimagine” policing. Uh huh…what could possibly go wrong with that?
Another red flag regarding Warnock is Jeremiah Wright. You remember him don’t you? He’s Obama’s favorite minister. Warnock is a major fan of his.
But yes, Politifact, you go right on ahead and tell us that Warnock isn’t radical? Pull the other leg why don’t you?
Warnock’s stance on our nation’s military is about as radical as it gets. According to Warnock, our soldiers cannot be Christians and be effective members of the military. I laughed when I first saw that, until I realized he was serious. When you have Ilhan Omar leaping to your defense regarding this, there’s a very big problem. Oh, and Warnock has a serious problem with concealed carry and church goers.
Ossoff isn’t any better. First of all he’s the boy wonder dude who tanked his first election run by campaigning with upside down signs and people discovering he’d literally moved into the district to campaign. He lost. BADLY.
But now he’s in a run-off against Senator David Perdue. So, what does he do? Embrace Bernie Sander’s socialist ideas 100%.
Ossoff on @BernieSanders: “I welcome his support. His advocacy for ensuring that healthcare is a human right in this country, for putting the interests of working families over corporate interests is welcome, is necessary, is appreciated. And so is his support.” #gapol #gasen pic.twitter.com/JyVaUOS4vX— Greg Bluestein (@bluestein) November 29, 2020
Yet, according to Politifact, NONE of this is radical. Nope. Not one bit. These two candidates just want the best for all of Georgia, as long as Georgia voters are ok with socialism, on board with anti-Israel stances, are all-in on getting rid of our law enforcement agencies, and don’t get me started on the climate change crap.
Ossoff is still turning back flips in glee about Bernie Sanders endorsing him. Which also led to Ossoff saying bluntly that he supports all agendas that Bernie promotes. But again, tell me how that isn’t radical? Bernie’s socialism would bankrupt us all on every level.
You know what else isn’t supposedly radical about Warnock and Ossoff? Failed Presidential candidates proposing that people move to Georgia and establish residency in time to vote for those two over Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue.
The best thing we could do for Joe is to get him a Democratic Senate. There should be coordination of resources. Everyone who campaigned for Joe should get ready to head to Georgia. I’ll go. It’s the only way to sideline Mitch and give Joe a unified government.— Andrew Yang🧢🗽🇺🇸 (@AndrewYang) November 6, 2020
We constantly hear about "preserving democracy" from Dems. It is not democracy to override the will of the people in a state with the will of people who don't live there when it comes to selecting representatives for that state. That is tyranny.— Allie Beth Stuckey (@conservmillen) November 10, 2020
Politifact didn’t offer a true fact check. If they had, they would’ve engaged in some genuine journalism. However, they didn’t do that. Instead they have engaged in promoting fake news. Politifact published their opinion and presented it as fact.
Warnock and Ossoff are radicals. Period. Full Stop. If they are elected, Georgia will suffer as will the rest of this Republic.
