On Saturday evening, former NFL running back Herschel Walker sent a message to his fellow Americans on Twitter urging them to “not pretend to be blind.”
The former Dallas Cowboys player has been extremely vocal in tweeting criticisms in light of the 2020 election. For example, his latest message to his fans is one in which he urges them to “open their eyes.”
“To vote in America is the only time Americans can voice their opinion for change. Americans, do not pretend to be blind,” Walker wrote on Twitter. “It’s time to open our eyes, and remove all the evil that has been here for many many years ..before @realDonaldTrump! #AmericatheBeautiful.”
In the past, meanwhile, Walker has echoed rhetoric from that of President Donald Trump. He says that citizens are casting ballots for those who have passed away. Additionally, Walker said that out-of-state voters are casting ballots, and some voters are turning in multiple ballots.
“Dead People Voting, People that don’t live in the state, People voting multiple ballots,” Walker tweeted. “America, this is the Country for our Kids and Grandkids-nothing to do with Rep or Dems. This is the integrity of America’s future. REPORT ANY FRAUD or PROBLEMS 888-630-1776.”
Herschel Walker Calls for Prosecution of Anyone Manipulating Election
The former Heisman Trophy winner is a longtime friend of President Donald Trump. As a result, Walker is an outspoken Republican and has long supported Trump’s re-election in 2020.
The running back has been especially vocal leading up to and in the days after the election. Generally, he often posts thoughts and criticisms on his official Twitter account. As a matter of fact, he said that anyone who manipulates the presidential election should be prosecuted.
“Play by the rules…..the American people demand ONLY LEGAL BALLOTS be counted,” Walker wrote. “Anyone manipulating this election should be prosecuted.”
Similarly, Walker tweeted on Election Day about his concerns of voter fraud. The president himself has even discouraged mail-in ballots because he thinks they are more susceptible to fraud.
Furthermore, Walker says that the American people “must fight for integrity.”
“America’s Democracy is better than this… Republican or Democrat,” Walker said. “Freedom and the right to vote legally is what sets America apart and made and makes us the greatest Country in the World. Anyone undermining our election should be prosecuted. We must fight for integrity.”
