Video Surfaces: Warnock prayed for Fidel Castro, reminding parishioners that U.S. also had a complex history

A video of Rev. Raphael Warnock, a Democrat contending for one of Georgia’s two contested Senate seats, has resurfaced of him praising communist Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.

The 2016 video shows Warnock behind his church’s podium, giving a eulogy for Castro days after the dictator had passed away.

“We pray for the people of Cuba in this moment. We remember Fidel Castro, whose legacy is complex. Don’t let anyone tell you a simple story; life usually isn’t very simple. His legacy is complex, kind of like America’s legacy is complex,” Warnock said.

“While we focus on political prisoners in Cuba, you saw the folks standing here this morning,” he continued. “If some people get slapped on the hand for the same crime and others go to federal prison, then we too have our own political prisons because politics more than the crime politics of race and class. And in that sense, many of us have sisters and brothers who are political prisoners. We are about to pray to a man who was a political prisoner.”

Weeks before the video resurfaced, Warnock denied praising the communist leader and blamed incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler, his Republican opponent, for running “smear ads” against him, while being interviewed on CNN.

When asked if he understood why “so many people view Castro as a murderous tyrant and not someone to be celebrated,” he responded, “I’ll tell you what I understand. I understand why Kelly Loeffler’s trying to change the subject.”

“Do you understand why people would be appalled by anyone celebrating Fidel Castro?” CNN’s Jake Tapper asked.

“Well, absolutely, and I never have,” Warnock said.

Loeffler has warned that Warnock is a “radical liberal” who’d “change America.”

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
