The 2022 midterm elections have brought some specific races into the spotlight, and one of them is in my home state of Georgia, where football great Herschel Walker is running a tight race against incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.).
One of the biggest complaints that the left (and some on the right) has leveled against Walker is that he’s dumb, but that’s simply not true. He may not have the silver tongue of some candidates — including Warnock, who uses his oratorical skills to advocate for policies that fly in the face of his pastoral duties — but Walker isn’t unintelligent.
Another aspect of Walker’s life that the left loves to comment on is the fact that he’s black. Left-wing writers talk out of both sides of their mouths about Walker’s blackness. One writer at USA Today (so it’s no shock that she’s of the left) complained about how Walker’s past reflects the wrong stereotypes about black men.
Njeri Mathis Rutledge reveals her bias early on in her piece when she opines that the GOP is on board with “any warm body that can be used as a pawn.” Rutledge trots out Walker’s past sins — some of which he has owned up to, others he has vehemently denied — but she loves to use the word “embarrassment” extensively to describe Walker.
Here’s the thing: Walker has some baggage in his past, and he says he has been redeemed and overcome the sins of his earlier days. (As a pastor, Warnock should appreciate that story of redemption, but he doesn’t because his true religion is wokeness.) On the other hand, Warnock has tried to bury the skeletons in his more recent past, ensuring that the court sealed his nasty divorce records. Warnock also has a record as senator that is troubling for anyone who’s not beholden to the woke mob.
Most of all, Rutledge sees Walker as a potential tool for racists — naturally.
“If Walker is elevated to political office, he could become a useful cautionary tale for racists to illustrate why politicians of color are a bad idea,” she writes. “Of course, recruiting a minority candidate to run against another with the implicit goal of siphoning off votes is not a novel idea – in some ways it’s pure evil genius that is repeated because it’s effective.”
In the eyes of leftists like Rutledge, Walker is the wrong kind of black man, in spite of his story of redemption. For other leftists, Walker doesn’t seem to be black enough.
Earlier this month, the New York Times sent a white reporter to Walker’s hometown of Wrightsville, Ga., to talk to residents about the candidate. Apparently, the only people reporter John Branch spoke to were Democrats, many of whom “spoke only under the condition of anonymity.”
Dems “own” so many bad candidates that they have tried to claim ownership of sinfulness.
Their opponents must be Jesus Christ personified or he’s some sort of failure to live up to GOP standards (set by dems, of course.)
This ploy ended with (or, maybe even before) Trump won.
We accept imperfect humans as our candidates.
We even get them elected.
Even as they have such abysmally low expectations of their own.
Ha. Sorry, but that task was fulfilled by Obama, then Kamala. Any anti-black bigot that wants to reinforce their prejudice that blacks cannot serve in leadership positions can now point to Obama as vivid examples to prove their bias.
Walker is just an example of a hard-working, conscientious, very intelligent former athlete (where teamwork and doing one’s duty is of utmost importance) that has taken public service as his new career.
When the Cowboys were sold to Jerry Jones, the team was in dire need of rebuilding, Walker was traded to Minnesota for 12 draft picks. Those draft picks eventually formed the core of the Super Bowl Champion Cowboys. Never once did Walker complain or show indignation over being traded off to rebuild the team. He was always a true class act.
What Democrats can’t stand is a black person that thinks for themselves and is not part of the Democrat plantation.
Democrats always look at everyone and everything in terms of race. They are obsessed with race, defining all things by it. Walker might turn out to be a poor, mediocre or maybe a great Senator. But, one thing he most definitely not: a racist, wife-assaulting, poor-folk-evicting, abortion-loving socialist puppet.

…both in 2021 and 2022. Either he’s a tax cheat, or he lied about Georgia residency to run for office there after recruitment by Donald Trump.

Trump is also a tax cheat. You don’t care about that either.
