Warnock's Former Church Hosted Antisemitic, Black Supremacist Professor

Georgia Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock's former church where he served on staff for a decade hosted a professor who held to antisemitic and Black supremacist teachings.

The Abyssinian Baptist Church in New York City where Warnock previously served hosted Leonard Jefferies at least three times.

"Leonard Jeffries is the uncle of Democratic Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, who is poised to succeed Nancy Pelosi as the next Democratic leader in the House. The congressman said in 2013 that he remained close with his uncle but disagreed with his theories," Fox News reported.

"At the time of his first appearance at the Abyssinian church in 1991, Leonard Jeffries was embroiled in a legal battle to retain his position as the Black studies department chair at City University of New York (CUNY)," it continued.

"He was ultimately removed from his position after a years-long dispute over racist and antisemitic remarks, including blaming Jewish people for the transatlantic slave trade and supporting Black supremacist ideals," the report added.

American Wire News noted additional concerning guests who spoke at Warnock's previous church.

"The professor's rhetoric would continue for years and he was just one of the controversial figures hosted by Butts at the church. In 1995 Cuban dictator Fidel Castro was brought in as a speaker," it reported.

"Butts also did not condemn Black Liberation Theologist Louis Farrakhan, known for preaching at the church attended by former President Barack Obama, when in 1986 he called Judaism a 'gutter religion,'" it added.

The disturbing associations are not new, but may influence voters ahead of Georgia's runoff Senate election on Dec. 6.

If Warnock wins, he'll help Democrats hold a 51-49 majority in the Senate. He faces GOP hopeful Herschel Walker in the coming runoff election.
