NFL Legend Tackles Biden For Comparing George Floyd to MLK

NFL legend Herschel Walker took aim at Joe Biden after the Democrat nominee for President said George Floyd’s death had a greater impact on the world than the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Walker, a running back who played in the league for 11 years, most noticeably with the Dallas Cowboys from 1986-1989, took issue with the comparison.

And he hammered Biden on his record on helping the black community while he was at it.

“Someone inform [Biden] not to compare the death of Dr. King and George Floyd,” he wrote in a social media post over the weekend. “He has been in office a very long time, and not once has he tried to change anything for black lives.”

Walker then urged followers to simply look at Biden’s record for proof.

Yes, He Actually Said It

First off, some of you may be thinking ‘There is no way, as out of his own mind as he might be, that Biden actually said this.’

You, my friend, would be wrong.

“Even Dr. King’s assassination did not have the worldwide impact that George Floyd’s death did,” Biden said during a round table discussion in Philadelphia last week.

Thinking more drivel from his mouth would help to contextualize what he was saying, Biden continued.

“Because just like television changed the civil rights movement for the better when they saw Bull Connor’s dogs ripping the clothes off of elderly black women who were trying to go to church, and fire hoses ripping the skin off of young kids,” he said.

“What happened to George Floyd, now you’ve got how many people around the country? Millions of cell phones, it’s changed the way everybody’s looking at this,” Obama’s former vice president claimed. “Look at the millions of people marching around the world.”

I would venture to guess many millions more were impacted by King’s death and what he stood for.

Biden’s Record

Let’s do as Walker suggests, and examine Biden’s record when it comes to race relations in America.

  • Biden worried that de-segregation would cause his children to grow up “in a racial jungle.”
  • He has been called the “architect of mass incarceration” by colleagues and called black youths “predators.”
  • Biden patronized Barack Obama “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”
  • Lest we forget, he told black voters that Mitt Romney – a darling of the Democrat party today – was going to put them all “back in chains.”

That’s the guy the left wants you to believe will be a great unifier.

Then, of course, there is this: Biden once bragged about receiving an award from George Wallace, said Delaware was on the South’s side in the Civil War, and touted that Delaware was a “slave state” as recently as 2006.

Walker, meanwhile, is an interesting figure. He has been adamantly opposed to kneeling by NFL players during the National Anthem, something that will no doubt increase in the upcoming season directly because of what happened to Floyd.

Walker, who says he’s perfectly content with people who want to demonstrate for equality or injustices, has said pre-game ceremonies involving the American flag are neither the time nor the place.

He called for a rule to be implemented banning taking a knee while the flag is being honored.

Unfortunately, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has gone full social justice warrior, indicating he will encourage protests while even urging teams to sign cop-hater Colin Kaepernick.
