A vote for Herschel Walker is a vote for stronger police, enforcing the law, controlling the southern border, repudiating Biden’s policies, ending political brain-washing in schools and the military, and making American families more prosperous by controlling Washington’s spending, lowering taxes, and reducing regulations.
There has been a lot of focus on Herschel Walker’s personal life – especially on some of the toughest parts.
There’s a simple reason for this: When it became clear that Walker could defeat Raphael Warnock in the Georgia U.S. Senate race, the left’s personal destruction machine went into overdrive. The left and its media allies are obsessing over everything in Walker’s life that has been negative – and everything that could be distorted or lied about to seem negative.
Walker responded forcefully to the attacks:
“I knew the left would try to paint me as a man unfit to serve in public office. After all, I struggled with mental health issues when my professional football career ended. But I sought treatment, got help, and then spent the next decade encouraging others to get help if they needed it,” he said.
Thirteen years before the left and media suddenly uncovered Walker’s past troubles (in October before an election), he wrote about them in his book, “Breaking Free: My Life with Dissociated Identity Disorder.”
Normally, if a public figure has been open and honest about his or her past struggles, the media acknowledges that and moves on from political attacks about old news. However, the Warnock-Chuck Schumer political machine has spent $50 million attacking Walker – and dragging his family through mud along the way. The media has happily gone along.
As Walker put it:
“In their desperation to find something to distract the voters from real issues and blunt our momentum, they came up with an ‘October Surprise’ alleging that I paid for a woman to have an abortion. Let me be clear: I have never paid for anyone to have an abortion. It’s a flat-out lie.”
This pattern of personal destruction fits the way the left has operated for decades.
They used it to defeat Judge Robert Bork’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court by President Ronald Reagan. They used it to almost defeat Clarence Thomas’s and Brett Kavanaugh’s nominations (forcing both to endure a humiliating series of lies before being confirmed). And, since 2015, the left has surrounded Donald Trump with an unending series of lies (both as a candidate and later as President).
At the same time, Democrats have tried to convince us the collapse and surrender in Afghanistan was a great success. They have claimed the southern border is “secure.” Democrats say releasing murderers and other criminals does not increase the crime rate. They said near-record inflation is transitory, normal, and only a problem for the rich. And Democrats have told us that closing down American oil and gas in favor of importing from Venezuela and Saudi Arabia is terrific policy.
These are the same Democrats who can’t define a woman, want the border open, don’t believe imprisoning criminals, want third-graders to engage in complex gender discussions, believe dormitories segregated by race are not racist, and want to use gender transforming medicine on teenagers without telling their parents.
Given this background, smears and exaggerations, attacking Walker should not surprise anyone.
Of course, the pious left which is shocked about Walker’s past ignores the police body camera video of Warnock’s ex-wife saying he is a liar and an actor. It must turn a blind eye to her reports that Warnock drove over her foot with his car. And it must overlook police reports that Warnock refused to cooperate with the police on a child sexual exploitation investigation about a summer camp he was running.
So, Democrats have things with which to attack Walker personally, and Republicans have things with which to attack Warnock. But more personal attacks don’t help Georgians – or Americans.
Beyond the personal imperfections of the two candidates – and the nastiest personal campaign of 2022 – there is a much bigger question.
The United States is in the middle of a crisis of culture, economics, government, and national security.
Warnock is on the side of the party whose policies are causing much of this crisis.
He has voted with President Joe Biden 96 percent of the time. Warnock voted for a bill to send money to people in the country illegally and prisoners (including the Boston bomber). He voted against securing the border and stopping the inflow of drugs and human trafficking. Warnock favors men competing in women’s sports. He voted against giving medical care to babies who survive abortions – and favors taxpayer-funded abortion up to the last day of pregnancy. Warnock voted for 87,000 additional IRS agents and against an amendment that would block the new agents from auditing middle and low-income Americans.
A vote for Warnock is a vote for open borders, open access for the cartels and fentanyl, big tax increases, efforts to replace equal opportunity with politically defined equity, and an anti-police approach to crime which has devastated Atlanta and America.
A vote for Walker is a vote for stronger police, enforcing the law, controlling the southern border, repudiating Biden’s policies, ending political brain-washing in schools and the military, and making American families more prosperous by controlling Washington’s spending, lowering taxes, and reducing regulations.
Georgia’s choice could not be clearer.
The implications for America’s future could not be more powerful and obvious.
The next time you see a vicious personal attack on Walker, remember what is really at stake for Georgia, our country, and our future Democrat Congress that lies.
