Because he's dumb as fark just like them, really.
It's all about language.

This fascination of trying to understand Republicans as if they're some sort of superintelligent, kind-hearted people who want good things is impossible to answer because it glosses over the reality that they're all stupid bigoted assholes who want the worst for everyone.
 
2022-11-30 9:07:46 AM  
Because he takes orders like a good boy.
 
2022-11-30 9:13:26 AM  
All of the above.

What's to understand?
 
2022-11-30 9:47:51 AM  
Because Democrats don't.
 
2022-11-30 9:48:30 AM  
Because he has an "R" next to his name. Next story.
 
2022-11-30 9:48:44 AM  
People underestimate how much appeal "he's not a politician" has.

Also, he'll vote R, and that's all that matters.
 
2022-11-30 9:49:01 AM  
because republicans are as farking stupid as he is.
 
2022-11-30 9:49:29 AM  
He played football
He isn't uppity
He never kneeled during the National Anthem
He has the same respect for women as they do
He doesn't like trans athletes
Do I need to go on?
 
2022-11-30 9:49:33 AM  
because he is someone they can install to do as they are told?
 
2022-11-30 9:49:53 AM  
He's athletic
He's dumb
He's prone to violence
He's abandoned his kids
He's a liar
He's everything Republicans believe a black man should be
 
2022-11-30 9:52:11 AM  
he has an R next to his name
god emperor trump supports him
some guy on youtube says all dem candidates sacrifice babies to demons
hes "down to earth" "not elite" and "someone i'd have a beer with" - translation: dumb as a box of rocks

Masakyst: He's athletic

FIFY

Wow, all those responses and not a SINGLE person got it right.

Walker's as dumb as an ape and extremely malleable. He'll dance when they tell him to dance and vote how they tell him to vote. Nothing else matters to the Republican Party but getting the stupidest people in Georgia to vote against their own interests again.
 
2022-11-30 9:55:07 AM  
On the surface, it seems that Lueders is listing positive attributes. But Lueders' piece is humorous, and anyone who picks up on his sarcasm will see that he is actually listing ten reasons why Walker shouldn't be elected to the U.S. Senate.

And anyone who didn't pick up on his sarcasm will write a strongly worded attack on Lueders's piece until realizing, half-way through, that Lueders was actually being sarcastic and then will have to toss out the first draft and write an article that cautions readers not to make the same mistake.
 
2022-11-30 9:55:26 AM  
He's the only candidate brave enough to address the vampire/werewolf issue.

thats why republican leadership wants him.  not republican voters.

Dafatone: People underestimate how much appeal "he's not a politician" has.

"I don't want a politician to do politics" is like asking a daycare provider to do your plumbing because "you don't trust those stupid plumbers".

Obviously there's nuance here, but R's assuming business men and brain damaged athletes are better for the position is, lol.

"His reach exceeds his grasp, thus confirming the need for heaven,"

Oh good... uh, heavens.

"He's not afraid to be just plain incorrect,"

Agreed with that one.

""He can take a complicated issue and sort it all out,"

... if by "sort it all out" you mean "oversimplify and reduce to third-grade analysis," sure.

And we're done here, last one out get the lights please.

They don't. It's the political equivalent of fark buddies. It's not love just a chance to fark.

Republican voters also want this. They have been mentally pummeled into submission and now think that what is good for the party is good for them. That's why things like adultery, corruption, pedophilia, and rape are no longer problems for not just Walker but most conservative politicians. Those things don't matter as long as the politician supports the party.
 
2022-11-30 9:59:40 AM  
Because he's wealthy and successful.  Success does not equal intelligence or being right - it just means you own stuff.

Owners are every companies' greatest liability.
 
2022-11-30 9:59:42 AM  
Because TFG still has the GOP Elephant by the balls

Mammy!
 
2022-11-30 10:00:59 AM  
He's a dumb (probably brain damaged) black man who will do what he's told to do.  He perfectly embodies the racist black man stereotypes.
 
2022-11-30 10:01:02 AM  

Walker: Because he has an "R" next to his name. Next story.


Walker* running at all should start a national debate about how farking crazy we are all going to get before we either talk this shiat out or start slitting throats

Because if we're so tribal that literally anyone can find a justification for voting for someone who is just so obviously, obviously completely unqualified, well, it's all kind of over, innit?

/ * no offense

"He plays werewolves in World of Darkness campaigns!"
 
2022-11-30 10:01:37 AM  
His brain is free real estate. He'll vote as he's told to vote.
 
2022-11-30 10:01:56 AM  
It's easy. Republicans like Walker because they think that he is the average black man and it confirms their racism for them.

Walker's as dumb as an ape because we descended from apes.

Wait a minute, if we descended from apes, then how come there are still apes? Interdasting.
 
2022-11-30 10:05:30 AM  
Wait, did someone just write an article explaining in earnest someone else's joke? Seriously?

Because he's a member of law enforcement!  Get with the program liberals!
 
2022-11-30 10:06:32 AM  
Because he is what racists want to believe black people are like.  Big strong, dumb as shiat, and somehow a white apologist.
 
2022-11-30 10:06:34 AM  
"Yet he's left at least three children to grow up, for the most part, without him."

I really hate to defend Herschel Walker, but the author of this is wrong about trying to use this statement as a criticism of him.  Without a doubt, the best thing Herschel Walker could have done for the upbringing of these children is not be involved.

Sounds like he could have been a bit more financially involved than 'Here is 500 bucks, get rid of it'.
 
2022-11-30 10:08:40 AM  
Because he's their "one black friend" who indemnifies them against charges of racism.
 
2022-11-30 10:08:43 AM  
Because he's a mindless toady who will do as they're ordered without question. Like a good little Naz...er....Republican.
 
2022-11-30 10:09:18 AM  
They love him because he's an imbecile as well as a compliant "House N****r" who will always vote for/against whatever bill they tell him to vote for/against. His frequent gaffes mean nothing because look at all the stuff coming from the likes of MTG and she's still around.

Simple as that.

That, and republicans don't like it when one of Those People gets all uppish and starts talking above their station.
 
2022-11-30 10:17:37 AM  
He's "anti-establishment" and financially successful by methods a white voting bloc finds acceptable.
 
2022-11-30 10:18:21 AM  
Poor turd. Walker is a human turd walking. Dumb and malleable. Republicans know they can use him to walk point when it comes to pushing fascist legislation and then blame him when the public rejects it.
Walker is clearly to be pasty. and a turd
 
2022-11-30 10:24:25 AM  
They were told to.
 
2022-11-30 10:25:32 AM  

VanillaEnvelope: It's easy. Republicans like Walker because they think that he is the average black man and it confirms their racism for them.


And at the same time allows them to publicly deny they're racist, because "See, we support a black candidate, so how can we be racist? You're the racist!".
 
2022-11-30 10:26:52 AM  
He's the very definition of a "Useful Idiot".
