Today, in the midst of unleashing more anti-semitic remarks with Alex Jones and Nick Fuentes, Kanye West again praised and doubled down on his support for Herschel Walker. Looking back at Walker’s habitual proximity to anti-semites, it’s easy to see why West has endorsed him.
Last year, Walker planned to attend a fundraiser hosted by a woman with a swastika as her Twitter profile photo. Walker defended the use of a swastika contending that it was an anti-mandatory vaccine graphic and later accepted over $11,000 from the host.
Walker has also maintained a close relationship with Marjorie Taylor Greene despite her ties to known anti-semites. Greene spoke at a white nationalist led event hosted by Nick Fuentes, a known white supremacist and anti-semite — yet Walker continued to campaign alongside her.
Just last week, Walker refused to comment on President Trump’s dinner with aforementioned anti-semites Nick Fuentes and Kanye West, even as his party members publicly condemned the meeting. Because of this silence, 10 Atlanta rabbis wrote a public letter condemning Walker for his inaction.
On the campaign trail, Walker has proven to be loud and quick to speak. This makes his silence on the growing issue of anti-semitism incredibly damning.
