Herschel Walker Stands up for President Donald Trump, the Flag

Videos by OutKick

The most discussed speech from Monday’s Republican National Convention came via Herschel Walker, the former Heisman winner.

Walker claimed he takes it as a “personal insult” when President Donald Trump is called a racist. Walker added he’s known Trump for nearly four decades.

“The worst one is racist,” he said. “I take it as a personal insult that people think I would have a 37-year friendship with a racist.”

Walker went on to say most Trump critics don’t know him and what he’s about:

“People who think that don’t know what they are talking about,” Walker said in a video. “Growing up in the Deep South, I have seen racism up close. I know what it is. And it isn’t Donald Trump.” 

Defending Trump, alone, is enough to ignite a fire online and in the media. But Walker didn’t stop there. He passionately explained his disapproval of another wide-spread talking point immune from disagreement.

“Just because someone loves and respects the flag, our National Anthem, and our country doesn’t mean they don’t care about social justice. I care about all of those things, and so does Donald Trump,” Walker said. “He shows how much he cares about social justice and the Black community through his actions.”

Wait, so you can care about social justice and love America? Don’t tell ESPN and CNN, they’d have to take down the scripts on their teleprompters. 

Just to stick it to the mob one more time, Walker pointed out what we all know but few have been willing to say: actions over brand building.

[Trump’s] actions speak louder than any stickers or slogans on a jersey.”

Adding up these facts, Herschel Walker just sent out a fierce challenge to the pathetic, miserable puppets of cancel culture. 

Who you got for the win?

  1. I STAND with Herschel very powerful speech from someone who knows hope everyone gets to watch the video much better than reading about it but both ways are good.

  2. In the irony of ironies, the same progressive cancel mob, which are forcing Aunt Jemima pancakes & Uncle Bens rice to be taken off the shelves, refer to the likes of Hershel Walker as an “Uncle Tom”. The comments on Twitter from these enlightened, woke individuals tells you all you need to know about them.

    It will take more than a prime time address to change black voters’ universal allegiance to the Democrat party, however. It will take figures like Hershel to be given audiences in black churches and community organizations. It wouldn’t hurt if churches that engage in partisan political activities lose their tax exempt status. Too many congregations are de facto political operations. Follow the money that lines the pockets of inner city pastors, and you’ll see why black voting patterns are almost always >90% Democratic.

    • Bobby, was same here yesterday I couldn’t even sign in. I just think there servers are crashing with all the traffic. They might need to change companies if they can’t handle the traffic.
