Well, this might be the team that finally brings reality in line with the lofty expectations between the hedges.

On Monday, athletic anomaly Herschel Walker had a thing or two to say about the nation’s violent and destructive rioting.

The NFL legend tweeted a video decrying the devastation of innocents’ property and livelihood.

He also marveled at elected officials allowing the assault:

“[I] watch a lot of these beautiful cities being destroyed by people rioting, and I saw all these local leaders that won’t step to the plate to protect their citizens or their citizens’ businesses.”

Herschel has an idea where justice is concerned — he believes the criminal activity across state lines should come with federal consequence:

“[I]’m gonna step up to the plate and become a local leader in the sense that I want to put in a mandate that anyone arrested during a riot and they’re not from that city — they don’t have a residence in that city or that town — should be arrested and get federal time. Because I pay state and federal taxes. So on my federal taxes, I want them to get federal time for the crime they’ve committed. “

As noted by Fox News, the Olympic bobsledder’s remarks come less than a day after longtime friend Donald Trump pointed to terror in Democrat-run cities:

“Rochester N.Y., Brooklyn N.Y., Portland – All had bad nights, all weakly run by Radical Left Democrat Governors and Mayors! Get the picture?”

He’s not wrong — incredibly, mobs are being allowed to literally lay siege (Language Warning):

Meanwhile, some — such as Andrew Cuomo’s secretary and chair of the New York State Council on Women & Girls — choose to speak as if the decimation doesn’t exist:

All that Democratic denial’s not likely to help the party in November, but I guess we’ll see.

As for the protestors, they are — it seems to me — agitators rather than activists. An activist fights for a cause, which appears to be missing from the ninja-suited folks turning out tyranny.

While I can’t be sure of their motivations, they appear caught up in the excitement of revolting against not revolting as if playing a game.

But theirs is a sport where injuries can be dire — something hulk Herschel knows a bit about:

Before more people are hurt — or killed the madness must be brought to an absolute end.

So says taxpayer Herschel Walker:

“Local leaders, it’s time for y’all to step to the plate and take control. This has got to stop.”
