NFL superstar and Hall of Famer Herschel Walker slammed the "woke" U.S. Olympians who protested America during the Tokyo Games. He straight up asked, “Why are you here?”
“People think I’m very harsh when I say this,” he told Fox News on Friday. “This is the United States of America, and if people don’t like the rules here — and there’s no doubt we can make some things better — but if people don’t like the rules here, why are you here?”
He added that the Olympics is not "the right place" or time for athletes to protest American, and that there are foreign athletes "who would love to represent the United States of America” if they could.
“It’s very sad to me because any other country… I can promise you… they would not be representing that country,” Walker said. “I totally disagree with it, but they have the right to do it, even though I think it’s wrong. We have to have leaders that… are going to stand up and say the right thing. You can feel a certain way and I think that’s great, but this is the United States Olympics… . I’m not sure that’s the time or place.”
Walker was a member of the U.S. Olympic bobsled team in the 1990s, which he feels made him even more patriotic than he already was.
“When I started seeing the United States flag and started seeing the people, the uniform, all my teammates from all different sports coming into that stadium — it almost brought a tear to my eye when I started thinking of where I grew up as a boy in my little hometown, and now having the chance to represent the United States of America,” he reminisced of his Olympic days. “I couldn’t have been more proud of anything.”
“All of my brothers and sisters were White, but I was [more proud] than anything. I would’ve died for that group over in France if I had to,” Walker added. “[They were] my family. … I couldn’t have asked for anything better. I grew up in South Georgia — never, never could have dreamed of anything like that.”
