Former Football Star and Olympian Herschel Walker Asks Protesting American Athletes ‘Why Are You Here?’

By

Football legend and potential Georgia Senate candidate Herschel Walker asked why American Olympian athletes who routinely protest their own country are even bothering to show up in Tokyo on Friday during an interview with Fox News.

As politics have taken over sports in the U.S., American athletes who are representing the country in Japan seem primed to turn the international event into a spectacle.

For example, the “woke” U.S. women’s soccer team was handed a 3-0 loss to Sweden on Wednesday in its Olympic opener. The loss came after women on the team knelt on foreign soil while showing support for the anti-American Black Lives Matter movement.

Walker, 59, shredded such overt displays of political protest when speaking with Fox News.

“People think I’m very harsh when I say this,” Walker said. “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?”

The former University of Georgia Heisman trophy-winner and USFL and NFL superstar, who is himself black, asked aloud if the Olympic Games are the proper venue for one to trash their own country.

Walker said there are talented athletes across the globe “who would love to represent the United States of America.”

Meanwhile, our country is stuck with people like Megan Rapinoe, who is the agitating, purple-haired face of U.S. women’s sports. Somehow, Rapinoe is still an embarrassment, even when being a good sport about getting destroyed by Swedes.

Walker also remembered his own Olympics experience in 1992, when he was a member of the Team USA bobsled team in the Winter Games.
