Kelly Loeffler Blasts Raphael Warnock for Anti-Cop Rhetoric

KELLY LOEFFLER BLASTS RAPHAEL WARNOCK FOR ANTI-COP RHETORIC

ATLANTA – Today, following Tucker Carlson’s segment last night on Raphael Warnock’s history of radical, anti-law enforcement remarks, conservative businesswoman and political outsider Kelly Loeffler issued the following statement:

“For months, Democrats have fueled the anti-police sentiment in this country – villainizing our police officers, attempting to defund our police departments, and organizing anti-police rallies in our streets. But for years, Raphael Warnock has railed against the police from his pulpit – calling them gangsters and thugs, claiming they endanger our children, and dismissing them as bullies on the street,” said Senator Loeffler.

“It’s anti-cop radicals like Raphael Warnock who are turning our police officers into targets and inciting violence across our country.

“I pray for the safety and security of our law enforcement officers. In my state, we will always back our police officers. And in my race, I won’t stand for Raphael Warnock provoking violence against our heroes on the frontlines.”
