A Queer Black New York Times writer called GOP Senate candidate Herschel Walker’s son, Christian, “a nasty piece of work.”
“As someone who is Black and queer, allow me to borrow from that vernacular, and say in a tone dripping with disdain: ‘Child, please,’” Times columnist Charles Blow wrote Wednesday.
“Christian says he could have stopped Herschel’s campaign from the beginning. But he didn’t. And neither was he passively disengaged. He was an active participant in the fraud,” Blow continued. “He knew when his father launched his campaign whatever Herschel had put him and his mom through, and he still actively supported him on social media and even sold campaign merchandise.”
Fox News further reported:
“He’s not opposed to lying, he’s just opposed to lying that personally affects him,” Blow wrote. “If Christian was truly offended by lies, he would have rejected Uncle Don long before he rejected his own father.”
Blow is vocal in his dislike of conservatives. In a recent column, he called Republicans “America’s problem” and a “threat to our democracy.” He also argued during the Black Lives Matter riots that George Washington’s statues should be taken down, and that the U.S. will “collapse” if former President Donald Trump is not prosecuted by President Biden’s Department of Justice.
The Daily Beast published a story critical of the Republican candidate, proclaiming, “Pro-Life Herschel Walker Paid for Girlfriend’s Abortion,” in the headline. Mr. Walker, who supports banning abortion without exceptions, denied the claim. His attorney called it a “false story” designed to target a Black Conservative.
Christian Walker, 23, is trying to burn his father’s campaign to the ground, Blow asserted, with his damning allegations about paying for his mother to have an abortion.
Blow basically calls Herschel Walker an “Uncle Tom” by schilling for former President Donald Trump but also blasts Christian as a complicit anti-hero.
“Herschel helped give cover for Trump’s racism in the heat of his re-election bid, so Trump rewarded him by supporting him for Senate,” the columnist commented about Herschel Walker.
He then returned to castigating Christian Walker, ending his column there.
“Now, he wants credit for calling out a sham campaign that he had participated in. But there are no laurels for him. He is a lot of things, but a hero isn’t one of them.”
