Herschel Walker Slams Black Lives Matter, Calls On NFL to Justify 'Marxist' Support
Football star slams sports team owners and players for submitting to BLM
NFL legend Herschel Walker has slammed the Black Lives Matter "movement" and called on major sports team owners and players to justify their unquestioning support for the radical-left organization.
In a video posted on his Twitter, Walker shared his thoughts about learning BLM is anti-American and led by “trained Marxists.”
Walker said he "finally woke up" about what Black Lives Matter is after researching the group's leaders.
He went on to challenge the NFL to dig a little deeper and then try to justify how hey can support a movement that is "anti-everything" that America stands for.

In the video, the former Georgia Bulldog and Heisman Trophy winner asked the professional football community: “Is this who you are supporting?"
"A trained Marxist tells you they are anti-government, anti-American, anti-Christian, anti-everything,” Walker said of the NFL's apparent ignorance of what Black Lives Matter stands for.

“We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories,” Cullors said in the interview with Jared Ball of The Real News Network.
"And I think that what we really tried to do is build a movement that could be utilized by many, many black folk."
Fellow BLM leader Garza also recently teamed up with a pro-Chinese Communist Party (CCP) organization to form a new radical-left political group, as Neon Nettle previously reported.
Walker demanded answers from BLM: “Tell the American people exactly who you are standing for.”
He called for the American people that support the movement to justify their reasons: “When you talking BLM, are you supporting the group that is trained Marxists?”
Players have protested the national anthem and have worn decals on their helmets featuring the names of victims of violence, and end zones will feature phrases such as "End Racism."
They've taken a knee during the national anthem and at times linked arms.
"First of all, it’s great unity but as I said early on, there shouldn't be politics in sport,” Walker told Fox News host Martha MacCallum.
He said the league, under the leadership of Roger Goodell, has allowed the protests, but he asked: "What's the end game?"
"The players do have a right to protest, but they must realize that fans have a right to protest as well,” he continued.
"So if they boo, you can't be upset.
"If they don't watch the show, you can't be upset.”
Walker emphasized that these protests do not achieve the end goal being sought out and the only way to see change is by acting.
"Instead of everybody having their folded arms and closed fists, why don't we have an open hand?” he asked.
"We all come together, and I’d love to go with you, the NFL, all major league sports, let's go to Washington.
"Let's get the Democratic, let's get the Republican people together."
