For Democrats, this could be the start of a long, hot summer. As the midterm election races heat up across the country, Democrats’ chances for a healthy election cycle look increasingly remote.
There also comes this time when, if things aren’t going well for them, they drag their only reliable play into the playbook: the race card. And the way things look, that card will be thrown away a lot.
Raise your sons to be like Herschel Walker, NOT Colin Kaepernick!!

The old faithful of the Liberals
Because black conservatives are one of Democrats’ biggest fears, the race map was recently unveiled in a big way against Georgia Senate candidate and football great Herschel Walker.
Elie Mystal, official “justice” correspondent for the left The nationand a regular MSNBC contributor, recently wrote in a column that Walker’s candidacy was an “insult to black people.”
Mystal really swung for the fences. Its opening line calls Walker “a lively caricature of a black person drawn by white conservatives.”
Here’s what Mystal thinks of a legitimate and beloved Georgian legend running for the ‘wrong’ party nomination:
Walker is what they think of us, and they think we’re big, ignorant, and easily manipulated. They think we are shady or criminal. They think we are tools to be used. The Walker campaign exists as a political minstrel show: a sizzling rendition of what white Republicans think black people look and sound like.

On MSNBC, Mystal graced the airwaves with this gem:
“I make a hard distinction between black conservatives and these tokens [referring to me and Senator Tim Scott]who are here at the moment, chipping and jiving for their white masters.
Walker, currently leading the Georgia Senate race, was not happy and made it known.
Herschel Walker called Elie Mystal about a disparaging article about race, which Mystal wrote to please his white overlords, and invited him to break bread with him and get to know him. Elie Mystal refused @msnbc with pretzel-twisting dialogue that screamed LOOSE.

Walker calls Mystal
Herschel Walker wasted no time in calling Mystal’s bigoted rant for what it was, calling it “racist, disgusting and sad”.
Walker went on to say, “I’m not going to shut up about this. This columnist says horrible things about other human beings based on the color of their skin. It is simply wrong.
Walker also made sure his followers were aware of Mystal’s comments. In an email to his followers, he said: “MSNBC featured this man on their network this week so he could spew even more anti-black, anti-conservative vitriol in the name of poor ratings. .”
By late April, Democrats were seeing the writing on the wall about who their opponent might be after the May 24 GOP primary. Walker, a former University of Georgia football player and Heisman Trophy winner, is one of Georgians’ favorite sons. He fled with the primary, well ahead of his opponents.
Walker had 66% of the vote at the end of April, his next closest opponent had only 7%. Three-quarters of GOP voters in Peach State had a favorable opinion of Walker. At the time, incumbent Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock’s own super PAC had Walker up from 51.4% to 41%.
Herschel Walker has officially won Georgia’s Republican Senate primary. He will face Raphael Warnock in November. I think Herschel wins easily.

Become Crunch Time
With the predictions being that the Republicans will take at least 20-35 seats in the House, and possibly the Senate as well, expect the Democrats to throw everything but the kitchen sink against the wall against the Republicans to see if it sticks.
In a move that might make the meanest girls think, “why didn’t I think of that?” on sports, fitness and nutrition, or be fired.
Both were apparently guilty of being nominated by President Trump.
While Democrats are busy with small childish gestures, the “Inside Elections” ballot puts at least 21 House seats in the “toss up” column. And while former President Donald Trump’s endorsement is still sought by GOP candidates, Democrats aren’t clamoring for Joe Biden to join them on the campaign trail.
Someone should let Herschel Walker know that the louder people like Elie Mystal are, the better he does in racing.
Congratulation to @HerschelWalkerour Republican candidate for the Georgia Senate.
It’s an opportunity 🔵🔜🔴 and we can’t wait to beat Warnock in November.
