[Ed. – ‘Worship of whiteness’? Oh, yeah, we forgot: He’s a deeply religious guy. He leaped to the defense of Jeremiah Wright when Obama’s preacher of three decades was attacked for his own bigotry and anti-Americanism.]

Georgia Democrat Raphael Warnock argued in late 2016 that Americans needed to “repent” both for supporting Donald Trump and for the country’s “worship of whiteness.”

The comments came in an address at Atlanta’s Candler School of Theology shortly before Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.

“If it is true that a man who has dominated the news and poisoned the discussion for months needs to repent, then it is doubly true that a nation that can produce such a man and make his vitriol go viral needs to repent,” Warnock said to raucous applause. “No matter what happens next month, more than a third of the nation that would go along with this, is reason to be afraid. America needs to repent for its worship of whiteness, on full display this season.”
