Warnock’s Church Was Evicting Poor Tenants as He Berated Those Who Were Evicting Tenants

The Georgia senate race is narrowing even as the left unloads one disgusting smear after another against Trump endorsed GOP candidate Herschel Walker. The liberal media even told Walker he “is not black enough.”

His opponent, Raphael Warnock, is a typical big-spending socialist Democrat who has helped cause record US inflation. But Warnock, on the other hand, gets nothing but a warm embrace and cover from the liberal media apparatus.

The media coddles and protects him.  They protected him even after shocking body-cam footage was released showing  police responding to an altercation between Warnock and his wife. Warnock’s wife accused her estranged husband of running over her foot during a heated argument while he was trying to leave with their young children in the back seat of his car.

In the latest case, the MSM is ignoring Warnock’s absolute hypocrisy.  While Warnock has been publicly vocal against evictions for the poor and struggling and expressing support for the federal eviction moratorium due to COVID, the church where Warnock is a senior pastor has no problem evicting those in need.

Ebenezer Baptist Church has supported evicting tenants,  in a building they own over, small debts.

The Daily Caller reports:

Ebenezer Baptist Church, where Democratic Georgia Sen. Raphael Warnock is senior pastor, moved to evict poor, low-income tenants from a building it owns while Warnock publicly railed against evictions, according to The Washington Free Beacon.

Columbia Tower at MLK Village in downtown Atlanta, of which the church is 99% owner, is a 501(c)3) non-profit intended to house the mentally disabled and chronically homeless, according to a grant application. However, the church’s business partner Columbia Residential filed a dozen eviction lawsuits against low-income residents throughout the pandemic over past-due rent amounts as low as $28.55 and successfully evicted two tenants, according to The Washington Free Beacon.

“They treat me like a piece of shit. They’re not compassionate at all,” Columbia Tower resident Phillip White, a 69-year-old African American told The Washington Free Beacon. He received an eviction notice Sept. 20 for failing to pay $192 in rent; the building previously tried to evict him over $179 in past-due rent in 2021.

Past-due rent for the dozen eviction lawsuits totaled only $4,900, according to The Washington Free Beacon; for comparison, Warnock brings in a $7,417 monthly housing allowance from the church on top of his salary.

It is unclear whether Warnock was aware of the evictions.
