Opinion | Herschel Walker’s Son Is No Hero
Of course, Trump issued a statement defending Herschel against the abortion claims, saying Herschel had “justifiably denied the allegations” and that he had “no doubt” Herschel was “correct.” .
But Christian adds an interesting wrinkle to this story. He seems angry. And pain.
In his video, Christian speaks directly to the right:
“And so I’m entitled to say I’m under suspicion for saying, ‘Hey, I’m done lying,’ when you all call me, ‘Is this true about your dad? Ah, we’re not going to beat Georgia. ‘ [unintelligible] It’s you. You don’t know what I’ve been through in my life. You don’t know what me and my mother survived. We could have finished this on Day 1”
Of course, Christian is a complicated character, and it’s a philanthropist. More precisely, he was seen as a bad job.
He is an electorate who opposes Black Lives Matter (he has called it a “terrorist organization” and the “KKK in black”), as well as gay pride (although, like Atlanta Journal-Constitution report“Walker has said that he’s not gay but is attracted to ‘big, strong, muscular men.'”). He’s also anti-body-positive (He is). says on Instagram, “I’m tired of all these models looking like they’ve never seen a treadmill in their life”), anti-feminist (he says on Instagram, “Probably men aren’t is trash, and maybe you feminists should shave your armpits”), and he rages against Covid protocols (as he said when he complained about Covid restrictions, “I don’t care about your grandmother at all. I don’t.”).
As a black and odd person, allow me to borrow that native word, and say in a disdainful tone: “Son, please.”
Christian says he could have prevented Herschel’s campaign in the first place. But he didn’t. And he is not passive. He was an active participant in the scam. He knows when his father launched his campaign whatever Herschel got him and his mother through, and he still actively supports him on social media and even sells his merchandise. campaign.
Maybe, as he said on Tuesday, the lies became too much for him as new revelations came to light. But for me, his comment reveals some outstanding situational ethics on the Christian part. He’s not opposed to lying, he’s just opposed to lying that affects him personally.
