The following article, Former Football Star Herschel Walker Calls Out American Athletes for Their Pro-China Behavior, was first published on Big League Politics.
Former college football star, NFL player, and MMA fighter Herschel Walker had choice words for the National Basketball Association and other athletes who criticize President Donald Trump but ignore China’s authoritarian policies.
Walker declared that “America is the greatest country in the world” in a tweet. Walker believes this because of America’s civil liberties, which in his view allow people “to speak and think” for themselves.
He then posed the question “during Summer Olympics will the @NBA players play for USA or China?”
Walker is referring to the upcoming Olympics which will be taking place in Tokyo in the summer of 2020.
The NBA has been recently caught in a web of controversy since Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey took down his pro-Hong Kong protester tweets.
This decision, which was likely prompted by the NBA behind the scenes, has raised many ethical questions about the NBA’s business standards and the growing influence China has on it.
reported on several sports figures such as Jason Whitlock seeing through the drama and understanding how China has had tremendous influence over the NBA due to its large presence in the NBA market.
The irony in all of this is that NBA players are afforded freedoms to criticize political figures in their country— the United States of America — whereas dissidents in China are brutally repressed.
