Herschel Walker isn’t known for his intellect — and he continues to confirm that reputation. In a bizarre interview, the Republican candidate for the United States Senate for Georgia told Gen Z and millennials what he thinks of their right to vote.
And it’s not good.
Host Christine Dolan asked the Heisman Trophy winner what he thinks about younger generations’ efforts to enact change –and in true Walker fashion, his answer makes zero sense.
Watch the video below.
“First of all, they don’t know that the grass is not greener on the other side,” the Trump-endorsed candidate said. “That they think there’s somewhere better and if they know another place that’s better than the United States of America, my thing is why don’t you go there? Or tell me, let me know who that is, cuz I can tell them right now, there’s not.”
“If you know a place better – you go there, but you lose your citizenship her in the United States of America. And then when you come back, you gotta come back legally like we should be defending the border,” Walker blathered.
“I think our biggest problem is we’ve not shown our kids that most of the people today hadn’t earned the right to change America.”
The constitution says otherwise.
The Texas resident rambled on about our servicemen and women who have sacrificed for our freedoms.
“They’ve given their life up for the freedom and these liberties that we have in our country today and we’re taking it for granted.”
Apparently, he doesn’t understand that plenty under the age of 30 have – and continue to – serve this country
Walker was correct when he said that people have died, and given their lives up for democracy, however, I don’t think he truly grasps what that means.
It certainly isn’t telling those born after 1990 that they haven’t “earned” the right to clean air, and water, a livable planet, livable wages or to have a voice in the society – and its future – that they live and work in.
There are between 70 – 80 million Americans born after 1990 – nearly a third of the country’s population. Suggesting they be disenfranchised is one more reason to reject Walker and the GOP.
Watch the video below.
Herschel Walker said voters born after 1990 “haven’t earned the right” to change the country, invited them to leave, and wanted them stripped of their citizenship.
