I don’t know whether Herschel Walker paid for an abortion or not (although I’ll take his word for it that he did not), but leftists are just plain stupid for stirring up a tussle trying to indict him for such an act, even if he did do it.
If Democrats have proof that he did indeed pay for an abortion, they’d be better advised to celebrate his joining their side of the argument, take a win on that point and use it to move on with the mid-term elections. But today’s woke, selfish and power-hungry Democrat party is not able to take the high road, they have to attempt to totally destroy Republicans in every instance and leave a path of rubble in their wake. If your opponent is doing things that you, as a political party, want everyone to do, thank that opponent for joining your side in the issue, take credit for being able to show the opponent’s two-facedness and move on with dignity.
But the fact that he allegedly used his own money to pay for the abortion, instead of using public tax money for all abortions as the left wants to do, puts a bit of pressure on the left to use measured tones when criticizing him. One clearly recalls the left’s calls of “stay out of my bedroom” back in the day, so the Democrats need to be careful when the expenditure of money is a private matter, because big government can trample on everyone’s toes if they get the chance.
On the other hand, just assuming his guilt for the sake of argument, Mr. Walker could have avoided much embarrassment if he had used the old Obama way out of a sticky position by simply saying that he had “evolved” to his current position of being an opponent of abortions, because of the harm this does to the mother, and obviously the child. This would have weakened criticism of his alleged act and given him some wiggle room in the argument, and he could have advanced his argument in the left’s own terms by making the appeal to a woman’s right to choose, and that a woman might change her mind once she has more personal experience with this very serious and personal matter. He might even have advanced the argument that he was opposed to the abortion but respected the woman’s right to decide to go forward with it, so he did the right thing by paying for it, based on her insistence.
The American political left is a vicious animal that will destroy their own nation in an attempt to gain and hold absolute political power, and this single-minded power struggle keeps them from being able to think of other ways to win a battle other than killing and ripping to shreds any and all opponents to their power quest. These people deserve nothing but total defeat in the 2022 mid-term elections, because they are undermining all that‘s good about America.
