Herschel Walker is back.

As I covered previously, on June 17th, football and MMA hero Herschel offered people down on American law enforcement a free trip:

“I have an idea… For all these people who don’t want any police, I’d love to meet with American Airlines, Delta, and Southwest and make a deal to fly them to countries that don’t have police. I want them to be happy!”

I assume the opportunity’s still available, but to my knowledge, no one’s yet cashed in.

And speaking of cash, Walker took to Twitter Monday to voice his views on defunding the cops as well as toppling monuments:

“I don’t want to defund the police. I don’t want to tear down statues. What about my freedom of speech? I want to be united as Americans. Congress and Senators… Can you hear me?”

In an attached video, here’s how Herschel put it:

“Hey, I was watching some kids — African American and Caucasian kids playing together — and I started thinking about their future. And then I was listening to a BLM protestor who’s speaking for the black people and I was thinking, ‘Hey, wait a minute — he don’t speak for me, he don’t speak for a lot of other people I know.’ And I was watching all the people that are wanting to take over a city block, and not just black — there was Caucasian, there was all types of race there — and I said, ‘Wait a minute — they don’t speak for the people I know.'”

The physical phenomenon’s perplexed:

“Why [are] these companies giving money to these groups? For what?”

He’s not into it, and he wants to speak for himself. And be heard:

“Where is my freedom? Where is my freedom that I don’t want to tear down statues? I don’t want to defund the police. I don’t want to riot and tear people’s stores up. I’m going to do it the right way. So Congress, senators, where is my freedom to speak?”

The Heisman winner’s been on a roll lately. If you suspect some might not appreciate his above tweet, you should get a load of what the bobsledder and sprinter laid down on July 2nd.

To Walker, people shouldn’t be punished for the sins of their ancestors.

Most alarmingly, the 12-season pro running back quoted — Trigger Warning — the Bible:

“I was reading the greatest book ever written, the Bible, and I read, ‘But if you don’t forgive others, your Father will not forgive your offenses.’ – Matthew 6:15. Why are we penalizing people for what their ancestors did? Forgiveness doesn’t mean you get something in return.”

It’s a tough crowd these days, folks. But Herschel Walker seems undeterred. He’s speaking his mind.

And it appears — like Terry Crews — he’s not too concerned about the consequences from those opposed.

From what I’ve seen, the superathlete’s not the type of guy to walk away from a fight:
