Former NFL player and college football star Herschel Walker gave a powerful speech in defense of President Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention on August 24, 2020.

“I’ve seen racism up close. I know what it is. And, it isn’t Donald Trump.”

“It hurt my soul to hear the terrible names that people called Donald,” Walker stated. “The worst one is racist.”

“I take it as a personal insult that people would think I’ve had a 37-year friendship with a racist,” Walker remarked. “People who think that don’t know what they’re talking about.”

Despite making these comments in support of Trump, Twitter users threw a massive fit over Walker’s pro-Trump speech.

According to a report by Total Pro Sports, the term “Uncle Tom” started trending on Twitter after Walker praised Trump in his speech.

Uncle Tom refers to blacks who are allegedly “sell-outs” to their own race by acting “white” or supporting causes that allegedly enhance white interests. Walker’s decision to praise Trump apparently merits such a nasty label from his critics.

Walker has been one of the strongest voices in support of Trump and will likely play a major role in the newly realigned GOP.

The fact that Walker is getting attacked this hard by the Left shows he’s doing something right.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
