Herschel Walker Blasts Woke Olympic Protests: ‘If People Don’t Like the Rules, Why Are You Here?’

Football legend Herschel Walker recently sounded off about Olympians protesting the American flag and kneeling before games.

“People think I’m very harsh when I say this,” Walker told Fox News during an interview on Friday. “This is the United States of America, and if people don’t like the rules here — and there’s no doubt we can make some things better — but if people don’t like the rules here, why are you here?”

He also questioned if the Olympics is the “right place” for Americans to protest their own nation in light of athletes from other countries “who would love to represent the United States of America” if they had the opportunity.

Walker competed in the 1992 Olympics when he raced with Team USA’s two-man bobsled team. He described the experience as one of his proudest moments “coming from South Georgia and representing the United States.”

“When I started seeing the United States flag and started seeing the people, the uniform, all my teammates from all different sports coming into that stadium — it almost brought a tear to my eye when I started thinking of where I grew up as a boy in my little hometown, and now having the chance to represent the United States of America,” Walker noted, adding, “I couldn’t have been more proud of anything.”

Yep this is exactly the whole point of the Olympics, representing your country !!!!

If you're disgruntled and ashamed to do so then simply don't bother turning up to compete because you're basically a traitor to your own country if you wanna start ignoring national anthems and bowing knees etc.

The huge platform of Olympic competitors and especially the winners makes these USA team ragers do what they do, but even more so b/c they know they will not be kicked off the team and they may even directly make some big money for being woke and they will probably be taking care of by a system of woke change agents and corporations that will hire them on the payroll afterwards. If it was punitive financially they might not do this but even if the only or primary punishment was being laughed at and seen as a disgrace by their country and countrymen/women they still would likely do it if the $ was available.
