Hershel Walker Calls Out The “Elephant In The Room” When It Comes To BLM, China
(Tea Party 247) – NFL legend Herschel Walker is speaking a daring truth about the group Black Lives Matter that few dare to address, but he calls it the “elephant in the room.”
He couldn’t be more correct.
The Trump supporter and vocal conservative shared a video on Twitter Monday, explaining that November’s election is the “most important election in HISTORY.”
Walker pointed to comments made by one of the co-founders of the group that they were “trained Marxists,” a fact confirmed by left-leaning PolitiFact, as BizPac Review notes.
He also pointed to Black Lives Matter having given “a lot of money to ActBlue,” a major Democratic Party donor.
“I saw that BLM gave a lot of money to Act Blue,” Walker added. “I reckon you can support whatever party you want to support — if the Democratic Party wants to be associated with Marxists, that’s fine.”
The most important election in HISTORY, not just for @POTUS but all branches of Gov’t. Why does no one seem to care about the elephant in the room? #doyourhomework @FoxNews @CNN @MSNBC @espn @marthamaccallum @JudgeJeanine pic.twitter.com/QBRzq1SUSj

He then dropped an explosive bomb on the group’s links to the Chinese Communist Party.
“But then I also saw that BLM had a subsidiary company that was partnered with a company from China that was giving them money,” Walker said. “So, the money goes from China, to the subsidiary, to BLM, to the Democratic Party.”
“Why does it seem like I’m the only that’s coming up with this? Just think about it,” he concluded.
From Fox News:
It wasn’t immediately clear what BLM “subsidiary” Walker was referring to. But his comments come less than a week after an article from The Daily Signal, the blog of the Heritage Foundation, titled: “The BLM Co-Founder and Pro-Communist China Group Are Partnering Up. Here’s Why.”
The piece purported to show a link between an organization started by BLM co-founder Alicia Garza, and a non-profit with ties to Beijing. A day later, The New York Times reported that the article conflated two nonprofits with the same name and made incorrect claims about BLM’s ties to the Chinese government.
While the Times’ Kevin Roose said that the two companies didn’t “appear” to be linked, he offered the lazy assurance that “there is no indication that today’s Black Lives Matter movement has any formal link to Marxism.”
Um, yeah. Anyone with internet access can pretty quickly ascertain the connection between BLM and Marxism.
In an email statement to the Times, Mike Gonzalez explained that the historical ties between the organizations was “actually fairly clear” and that they were “united around shared goals.”

What is really egregious is when a @nytimes “fact-checker” leaves out the facts that sink his narrative.

“[The New York Times] is trying to cover for the BLM organizations again. Kevin deliberately ignored everything in my statement—and in my article—about CPASF’s past work promoting China and its revolution,” Gonzalez said in a separate tweet.
