Watch: Herschel Walker Slams Pro Sports Leagues For Promoting This Radical Message

(Liberty Bell) – Heisman Trophy winner and football legend Hershel Walker took to Twitter with a powerful message over the weekend after witnessing what is going on in Portland, Oregon, where radical activists have been running wild in the streets.

In fact, he felt so strongly about sharing this message that he stopped his workout to do so.

Breitbart reports:

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.”

Walker 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?”

While many claimed that Antifa protesters appeared more peaceful after supposedly striking a deal with the State of Oregon and federal law enforcement, there were nonetheless rioters in the street that went on a “burning spree,” as Breitbart explains, “in which no American flag or Bible was safe.”

Over the weekend, Walker used a football analogy while speaking with Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro to underscore the audacity of defunding 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.”

Breitbart notes:

Walker, who played on a USFL team owned by Donald Trump, 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.

  1. I do not agree with Herschel Walker. I support BLM for speaking out for minorities. There are some people that are not true supporters of the cause, Perhaps some are supporters of those that think Black Lives Do Not Matter as a much as theirs and are doing unlawful things to reflect badly for the peaceful protestors. BLACK LIVES MATTER!

  2. All this unrest has nothing to do with race. It’s the excuse being used to bring down America as we know it. It is full on push by those leading these riots to use race to get people to do what they want them to do in order to gain their objective of destroying America to put the New World Order in place with a global government. Defunding the police is being pushed so that the globalist can put a UN police force in place to keep people in their place. If this is all allowed to happen your freedom to do anything is over. You will no longer have freedom of movement, travel to other states prohibited, no vacation. It will be a gestopo type of police force beating it’s residents into submission. And you think police abuse is bad now, just wait till the global force takes over. Why do you think they are so hell bent on disarming the American citizen. Once they disarm America it’s all over. Freedom is not free and comes with a price, but it is worth fighting for if you value your freedom and life in America.

  3. God bless you for speaking the truth about our country. We need to be united as a nation to help us through these tough times. Pray to God because He answers prayer!

  4. Good job Mr Walker ! I’m so proud of you and what you said ,so right it’s a battle for the soul of America, I pray for your continued strength, Our President,Our Preachers and Good Leaders and citizens to stand fast and be vigilant, Have Faith in the GOD of Truth !

  5. Thanks so much Herschel. What a coincidence. You’re on Judge Jeanine and Mike Ditka, the revered coach who KNEW your talent and got you for the Saints was onJesse Waters the same night. Both of you are awesome. Thanks

  6. Thank you so much for standing up and speaking the absolute truth, the sports teams need to realize that without good hard working Americans there would be no teams. BLM only wants to tear down, these athletes make a lot of money and without the Support of the individuals that go to the games and watch them play they would not be where they are today!! God Bless the USA

  7. It may be time for a FINAL, PERMANENT solution to a CHRONIC, PERSISTENT problem! Language and the art of communication can be formidable opponents to those with eyes to see, ears to hear, and minds capable of even the most rudimentary comprehensive skills! Does that sound like anyone you know? Antifa? BLM? Democrats, maybe? Could it be possible that all this is a fool’s errand, and that more physical force may have to be resorted to? Time will tell!

  8. You have truly stayed true to your beliefs, and we are so thankful that you are speaking against all of this hate for America. We love you, and we are praying for this great nation of ours. Please keep speaking out, and giving all of us to have the courage to speak out against all of these people who are using the weak to accomplish their goals!

  9. Thank you for standing up for America and the opportunities it provides everyone. When you squander your youth on a pipe dream utopian cause that corners all involved to limit themselves to a useful idiot role. Reality will give you a hard knock that a lot of people will never recover from.
