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?
