Herschel Walker: Those who migrate to cities to take part in riots should be arrested and serve federal time

Former NFL star and Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker has suggested strict penalties, such as being federally charged to those that get arrested during a riot and they are not from that particular city where the riot is taking place.

Walker recently posted a video on Twitter saying he is going to become a local leader after seeing so many others fail at stepping up to protect citizens. He said:

“I’ve watched a lot of these beautiful cities being destroyed by people rioting and I saw all these local leaders that won’t step to the plate to protect their citizens or their citizens’ businesses.”

He added:

“So, I’m going to step up to the plate and become a local leader in a sense that I want to put a mandate that anyone arrested during a riot and they’re not from that city, they don’t have a resident in that city or town, should be arrested and get federal time.”

Walker spoke during the Republican National Convention and complimented President Donald Trump’s work for social justice and the black community. He said:

“I pray every night that God gives him more time. Give him four more years. He has accomplished so much, almost all by himself under constant attack, but there is more work to do.”

Walker said that President Trump shows how he cares for the back community through his actions. He said:

“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. He shows how much he cares about social justice and the Black community through his actions and his actions speak louder than any stickers or slogans on a jersey.”

Walker noted that he has lost friends over his support fo Trump. He explained that the left is the problem, not the president. He said:

“Losing friends has been a big cost. I lost some friends and that’s what’s so strange about it. How could in a country like America, you disagree with someone that you now want to injure that person or you just don’t want to talk to them no more? Where did it get that you become a country like that?”

In another tweet, Walker said:

“Outsiders coming to riot into other communities should get federal time for destroying lives and businesses! #StopTheViolence.”

Violent protests, riots, looting, destroying property, and assaulting law enforcement officers almost on a nightly basis have been occurring in large cities from coast to coast since the death of George Floyd.

According to reports, since then, Black Lives Matter protesters have been demonstrating for over 100 consecutive nights in Portland, Oregon. In June, it was reported that businesses in Portland have lost at least $23 million due to rioting and looting.

Allegedly, an estimated $4 million is said to be actual physical damages while the rest is lost revenue.

During the Republican National Convention, Walker said that accusations that the president is racist, hurts his soul. He said:

“I take that as a personal insult that people would think I’ve had a 37-year friendship with a racist. People don’t know what they’re talking about. Growing up in the deep South, I’ve seen racism up close. I know what it is and it isn’t Donald Trump.”

He said:

“I don’t think people really know Donald Trump. I think they look at Donald Trump from a tweet or look at from what he says and they’re not looking at what he does.”

He added:

“Donald Trump has done more in three years than almost most presidents have done in eight and what’s so special about him is he cares about people and that’s what I wanted people to do.”

Here is another article from Law Enforcement Today about Herschel Walker and his support for Donald Trump:

Heisman Trophy winner and NFL legend, Herschel Walker posted a video on August 2nd, saying that he stopped his workout early after he saw something that really, really disturbed him.

After watching rioters in Portland holding a Black Lives Matter sign while burning copies of the Bible, he felt compelled to say something.

He started the video by saying:

“I saw a bunch of people holding a ‘BLM’ sign burning the Holy Bible, a flag of the United States of America, and a cross. I started thinking, NFL, NBA, WNBA, MLB is this the people you’re supporting right now?”

He continued:

“Is it the movement? Is it the organization? Because I don’t think that’s right. Maybe, Washington. We cannot continue to sweep stuff underneath the rug because sooner or later we’re going to stumble. People, are we being fooled?”

Over the weekend, Walker appeared on Fox News with Judge Jeanine Pirro, and he used a football analogy to illustrate the absurdity of defunding the police.

He said:

“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 American right now. We’re fighting for America.”

He continued:

“Do not be afraid to speak out for what is right. What is right, 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.”

In talking to Judge Pirro about kneeling, Walker said:

“It hurts because we’re the greatest country in the world and (they’re) taking a knee on the United States.”

He said:

“Do we have our problems? Yes, we do. Can we solve them? Yes, we can.”

Dozens of NBA players have worn “Black Lives Matter” shirts and kneeled during the national anthem since games resumed last week. Some have the words on the back of their jersey instead of their own last name, all of which the league has allowed.

Other MLB and WNBA players have shown similar support for Black Lives Matter since the beginning of their seasons, which began in July.

Walker’s response to this?:

“America wake up. If we love our country, let’s speak up, stand up, and protect it!”

In his conversation with Judge Pirro, he said:

“We were taking a knee a couple years ago and what did it accomplish? I said, ‘Guys, what is your endgame? What do you want? No one is saying what they want.’ I saw where they say they want justice for Breonna Taylor, and I do too, but what does that mean?”

He said:

“Why don’t people give solutions rather than do things against the greatest country, which is the United States of America.”

Back in June, Walker spoke with Bill O’Reilly on “The First” about why he supports the police.

He said:

“99.9 percent of the police are good people. I support them. They’re defending this country. I believe in the police and I believe in the laws.”

Here is another article from Law Enforcement Today about Walker and his support for police and the law:

You have sports “stars” like LeBron James, Colin Kaepernick and others who are advocating for violent protests, if not be their words then by their actions. That’s why it was so refreshing to see former football star Herschel Walker tell people in a tweet last week that people who don’t want police officers in their communities should go to other countries.

According to The Hill, “I have an idea…for all those 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 wrote.

In the 1980’s, Walker played for the USFL’s New Jersey Generals for two seasons, then moved to the NFL where he played 12 seasons. The Generals were owned by President Trump. Walker was a star at the University of Georgia and won the Heisman Trophy.

Earlier last week, Walker, who played for the Dallas Cowboys in the NFL and was a two-time NFL Pro Bowler offered to bring congressional members together with “leaders from all ethnic groups, both left and right, to find solutions,” volunteering to act as a black leader to facilitate those ends.

“We’re civilized people,” Walker wrote on Sunday. “Why can’t true congressmen/women and senators get together with leaders from all ethnic groups, both left and right, to find solutions…unless certain people in Washington don’t want to see a change. I’m volunteering myself as one of the black leaders.”

Walker remains friends with the president and serves as co-chair on the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness, and Nutrition.

Fox News also said that Walker also retweeted a comment made by his son, Christian on Twitter, who stated that he had no sympathy for people who are looting and burning down buildings during the nationwide “protests.”

“My dad grew up in the deep south as a poor black man and turned himself into a notable athlete, businessman and person,” Christian Walker wrote. “No, I don’t feel bad for ‘oppressed’ people who run around burning buildings down. I’m not sorry I’m grateful for my country/the opportunities it’s given me.”

Walker’s comments mirror those made by President Trump last week when he signed an executive order on police reform.

“Americans know the truth: Without police, there is chaos. Without law, there is anarchy. And without safety, there is catastrophe,” the president said. He continued, “…we need leaders at every level of government who have the moral clarity to state these obvious facts.”

“Reducing crime and raising standards are not opposite goals. They’re not mutually exclusive,” he added.

“Americans want law and order, and they demand law and order. They may not say it, they may not be talking about it, but that’s what they want,” Trump said. “Some of them don’t know that that’s what they want but that’s what they want.”

Herschel Walker’s comments stand in contrast from the rest of mainstream NFL stars’ comments, who parrot Democratic Party talking points.

Walker recently criticized Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, for comparing the death of George Floyd to that of Dr. 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 once has he tried to change anything for black lives. Look at his voting records!” Walker tweeted.

It’s refreshing to see a sports star with a mind of his own instead of bending to political correctness. Brett Favre, take note.
