Hershel Walker rose to fame as a college athlete winning the Heisman Trophy. He is also a good friend of President Donald Trump. However, Walker isn’t on board with the Black Lives Matter movement. In fact, Walker was utterly flabbergasted as he watched players of the NBA and MLB honor the race-baiting BLM organization, and he was moved to make them regret it. You’ll love this.
Anyone who knows anything about Heisman Trophy winner and NFL legend Hershel Walker knows how seriously he takes his workouts. So, if Walker felt compelled to end his workout, there would have to be a very good reason.
On Sunday, Walker took to Twitter and explained that he had felt compelled to stop his work out “for the first time in a long time,” after watching rioters in Portland holding a Black Lives Matter sign while burning copies of the Bible. That event also prompted Walker to think about the pro sports leagues that have embraced BLM.
“For the first time in a long time I stopped in the middle of my workout because last night I saw something that really, really disturbed me,” Walker explained. “I saw a bunch of people holding a BLM sign burning the Holy Bible. Burning the flag of the United States of America, also burning a cross.”
“And I started thinking that NFL, NBA, WNBA, MLB: is this the people you’re supporting right now? Is it the movement? Is it the organization? Because I don’t think that’s right,” he added.
“Maybe, Washington: we cannot continue to sweep stuff underneath the rug, ’cause sooner or later we’re gonna stumble. People, are we being fooled?” Walker concluded.
The NFL all-pro tweeted out those thoughts and included these words: “America wake up…if we love our Country, let’s speak up, stand up and protect it!”

Despite claims that Antifa protesters had calmed down after an apparent deal struck between the State of Oregon and federal law enforcement, rioters went on a burning spree this weekend in which no American flag or Bible was safe.

During an appearance on Fox News this weekend with Jeanine Pirro, Walker used a football analogy to illustrate the absurdity of defunding the police:
You have so many people today afraid to speak out because of what they’ll be labeled as. I’ve been labeled as so many names; people have called me so many names. We’re fighting for America right now. We’re fighting for America.
Do not be afraid to speak out for what is right. What is right is — we don’t defund the police. Let’s be real. If you want to win a Super Bowl, you don’t take money away from your team; what you do is go out and pay players more money to get a better team … you put more money in; you don’t take money out.

Walker played on a USFL team owned by Donald Trump and has been one of his former employer’s biggest supporters. He has also played an active role in helping Georgia Governor Brian Kemp during his campaign against Stacey Abrams in 2018.
The two-time NFL Pro Bowler and Georgia native took to Twitter in June to give his thoughts on the calls to eliminate police departments across the country following recent events. His message really angered leftists.
“I have an idea… For all these people who don’t want any police, I’d love to meet with American Airlines, Delta, and Southwest and make a deal to fly them to countries that don’t have police. I want them to be happy!” Walker posted.

Walker also blasted Joe Biden when he started comparing George Floyd to Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Someone inform @JoeBiden not to compare the death of Dr. King and George Floyd. He has been in office a very long time and not once has he tried to change anything for black lives. Look at his voting records!” Walker tweeted.

Hershel Walker is a devout Christian and cites Martin Luther King, Jr. as the one man who really made a difference in race relations. He knows the “woke crowd” made up of Hollywood celebrities despise a black man exposing their hardcore agenda that backs BLM.
