Loeffler’s Attacks on Warnock in Georgia Runoff Are Racist Dog Whistles

Raphael Warnock, U.S. Democratic Senate candidate, speaks during a news conference in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S., on Thursday, Nov. 12, 2020. Republican willingness to go along with President Donald Trumps extended fight over the presidential election may have as much to do with the Georgia runoffs that will determine control of the Senate as with resolving the presidents grievances over the vote count.

Klux Klan “Grand Klaliff” Chester Doles, a longtime fixture in the north Georgia white supremacist movement. Doles posted the selfie with Loeffler on VK, a Russian social media site (the pre-Parler stomping grounds of the white supremacist right) over the weekend. Doles — who spent years in jail after beating a Black man nearly to death as part of his white nationalist activism — has been trying to legitimize his “America Patriots USA” group for the last few years, with little success. And here he is. With one hand, Loeffler is claiming that her well-staffed campaign didn’t know who he was when they approached her. Georgians might find that hard to believe; Marjorie Taylor Greene, the QAnon-supporting incoming congresswoman from North Georgia, threw Doles out of a joint rally with Loeffler a month ago.
