NYTimes Reporter Stalks Herschel Walker’s Hometown to Report that He Isn’t Black Enough

'They will do anything to hold onto power. It's disgusting, gutter politics...'

(Ezekiel Loseke, Headline USA) The New York Times sent a reporter to Georgia senatorial candidate Herschel Walker’s hometown to claim that the former football great had no ties to its local black population.

As Walker begins to pull ahead of incumbent Democrat Raphael Warnock, leftist media outlets have been unrelenting in their smear attacks, even accusing Walker of allegedly aborting a child with a former mistress.

Walker also has become the new “black face of white supremacy” for many on the Left, who have tipped their own latently racist hands in their efforts to discredit and demean him.

John Branch of the New York Times traveled to the 1,000-person town of Wrightsville, Ga., to uncover dirt on Walker, Breitbart reported.

Branch used anonymous sources, innuendo and anecdotes to suggest that Wrightsville’s black population fostered resentment toward Walker because he did not participate in racially motivated protests in the 1980s, during the peak of his athletic fame.

“Herschel’s not getting the [b]lack vote because Herschel forgot where he came from,” a Wrightsville High School teacher told the Times.

However, not all is negative for Walker in his hometown.

The Times quoted Walker’s high-school football coach, who explained that his famous prodigy likely hoped to stay above the fray rather than risk harming his future career.

“I don’t want to be divisive,” said the coach, “… but as an 18-year-old [b]lack kid in Wrightsville with a lot of pressure on him, can you see how or why he might have decided that ‘this is not the best thing for me, to start getting into this’?”

Four decades later, Walker is no longer staying silent about his views on who is doing the most harm, both to black Americans and all other U.S. citizens.

All but two polls on RealClearPolitics are within the standard 3-point margin of error, with Walker appearing to have gained considerable momentum after a slow start.

The race’s closeness may explain this story and the more absurd claims made by leftist political operatives and their media allies about Walker.

The Daily Beast accused Walker of funding an abortion for a former girlfriend. Walker denied the accuracy of the story on Twitter and also said he will bring a defamation suit against the outlet.

Former President Donald Trump weighed in on the controversy to defend Walker, whom he had a role in recruiting for the race.

“Herschel Walker is being slandered and maligned by the Fake News Media and obviously, the Democrats,” Trump said in a post via Truth Social.


Walker further spoke out Monday about the obsessive and abusive treatment he has received from the mainstream media.

“They will do anything to hold onto power,” he tweeted. “It’s disgusting, gutter politics.”
