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.

  • Poor Biden can't even remember who he is currently pandering to trying to win voters to support his pathetic campaign. How can anyone even consider voting for this demented doddering old fool?

  • Of the many ignorant utterances out of Joe Biden's mouth, comparing MLK and George Floyd is the most appalling. Go back to the basement, Joe!

  • When this is all over with and Biden is in his basement or in jail, some one should write a book on the history of Biden foibles and misquotes. It will be a gold mine.

  • Finally a thinking former NFL Player who sees through the lies of the rioters, looters, and ANTI-AMERICAN HATE GROUOS.

    CONGRATULATIONS Mr. Walker!

  • Thank you Herschel for your true statements. I was at Ole Miss when you were at Georgia so back then let's just say you were't my biggest idol. I am a white man that grew up in the deep south and saw first hand the marches and protests organized by Dr. King. I was going to school during desegregation. Dr. King was a truly great man who's legacy continues to this day. He want'ed all men (& women) to be equal which is as it should be. My father taught me to judge not by a persons look, race or color but by their actions. I am appalled by what I hear on a biased media and from attention seeking celebrities and politicians who only care about making money or promoting hate and discord across our great land. I and many others have fought for the freedoms we enjoy and to see what is happening is disheartening to say the least. (Soldiers don't know color they only know brother's) Please for the Love of God America wake up, lift up the covers and see who's underneath so that you see you are being played by a select group for their own purpose and greed. This group wants to destroy our country and they don't care what it takes to do it. Thank you again Mr. Walker and thank you Dr. King for everything you have stood for and the world you wanted for us all.

  • He also wasn't trying to pass a 20.00 dollar counterfeit bill while under the influence of meth and cocaine.

  • To most of the American citizens who like to be called African Americans not just Americans citizens.
    I can see with this G.F killing. That it was very painful,
    BUT, & I mean a big BUT the media of the USA & the democrats have made G.F funeral & life into a complete circus. Which is totally insulting to the African American community in general. Making out that G.F was anywhere like or in the class of MLK

    Today a 27 yr. old Air Force pilot whose death was news to us all in Utah, Was killed when his plane went down in the North Sea, of of the Northern coast of england . Now that man was a hero supporting his country & the American way of life.
    I wonder if Nancy Polosi the big phony will go to his funeral & give THIS AIR FORCE PILOTS'S WIFE
    the flag of the day he died for that flew over the Capital or get on her knees with a United states emblem wrapped around her neck or will the other phony's get on their Photo OP Knees . So sick of all them & they want us to accept EX- VP Biden Who has done nothing for anyone as their flag bearer. I do not think so

  • I think Biden is a waste of time and money for the Dems ... but he suits me ... Vote Trump 2020
