Herschel Walker raises the stakes:


Herschel Walker, who has vehemently opposed abortion rights as the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Georgia, paid for an abortion for his girlfriend in 2009, according to a new report published late Monday. The candidate called the accusation a “flat-out lie” and said he would sue.

The Daily Beast's reply:

Matt Fuller, the politics editor for The Daily Beast, tweeted in response: “I can tell you we stand behind every word and feel very solid about the story.”

Very interesting response by Walker. Bad press is common right before an election, but suing isn't. This could blow up in either Walker's or TDB's face depending on whether the story is accurate.

The truth will out.

That said, the evangelical right loves a good redemption story. Walker can get on TV and pull a Swaggart and all will be forgiven. Besides, what's a Trumplican supposed to do - let a Democrat win? Better a lying, abusive abortion funder who abandons his postpartum kids than a lib!

Based on the article, they seem to have pretty convincing evidence, so we'll see. They have a signed check, and a get well card but whether we'll have to see how accurate all of that is.

^^ This is how the left operate. Here's how it goes:

1) Manufacture a smear
2) Claim the smeared person is lying
3) Hold up manufactured victim as a martyr
4) When lawsuits are threatened to clear smear, manufacture an imaginary scenario whereby the smeared victim is still guilty of the smear.
5) Perpetuate the debunked smear as truth from that moment onward.

Here are some oldie but goodies from that playbook:

"Vast right-wing conspiracy" to sully Bill Clinton
Trump is Russia asset/ Steele Dossier has been coorberrated
Matt Gaetz accusations
Kids in cages
“peaceful protesters were tear-gassed across from the White House.”
Neo-Nazis “Fine People on both sides”
President Trump called the pandemic a hoax.
“Social Security beneficiaries count on the post office to get their checks.”
Cuomo saves New York from COVID! - while Trump "murdered Americans"
Comey, Clapper, and Brennan are honest Americans just telling the truth

I'm sure there are hundreds more.

I think for the vast majority of right wing voters, the irony expressed above is true.

But, in a race as tight as this, losing any amount of voters can be situation critical.

The extremely messy part of this is Mr Walker having to deal with his entire family and knowing how much of all the bad news about his sorry ass is true. They want him gone!! imo

Maybe the Republicans are taking a page from an old Democrat book for your candidate no matter what.
LOL!


Trump tried political hari-kari more than a few times…….

Whataboutism: When the facts are too much to overcome, the weak-minded ignore them and attempt to point elsewhere.

This is BS and damage control a month before the election..

1- he would never want this to go to court... Lol.. Imagine what would come out at a trial?.. Lol

2- it's got no chance to be heard in a month.. If he wins or loses he drops the suit..

But you didn't make any decent points. You rolled up in a ball and claimed it was all made up.

Defense of a false smear is now "damage control". LOL!

This is how the left operate, as I showed above.
1- he would never want this to go to court... Lol.. Imagine what would come out at a trial?.. Lol

Yes, IMAGINE!! LOL! That's what the left want you to do, IMAGINE his guilt!

This is how they operate - with lies and smears.


2- it's got no chance to be heard in a month.. If he wins or loses he drops the suit..

You see? His actual guilt or innocence is not the uissue with the left.

It's all about SMEARING them before an election. They're cowards, frauds, and liars.

It IS made up! It's a smear campaign, because democrats can't run on any other platform, like accomplishments.
