Senate hopeful Herschel Walker canceled the event on the swastika

Georgia Republicans US Senate Candidate Herschel Walker The fundraiser has been halted in Texas because a swastika made from organized syringes was displayed on her social media profile to oppose the Kovid-19 vaccine.

The Walker campaign said it canceled the event on Wednesday, scheduled for Saturday at the home of Bettina Sofia Viviano-Langlais in suburban Dallas.

“Herschel is a strong friend of Israel and The Jew The community opposes all forms of hatred and fanaticism, “said campaign spokeswoman Mallory Blount.” Although the obvious motive behind the graphic is to condemn government vaccine orders, the symbol used is very offensive and does not reflect Herschel Walker or his campaign values. “

The campaign first denied that the sign was a swastika.

“Herschel Walker defended the swastika, and canceling the fundraiser does not change the fact that he failed to condemn the hateful, anti-Semitic symbol.” Dan Gottlieb, a spokesman for the Georgia Democratic Party, said in a statement.

Former President Donald Trump is a football great and a longtime friend of the Democratic sen. Rafael urged him to run for a Republican nomination in 2022 against Warnock. Walker is running against three other Republicans, including Georgia State Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black.

The fundraiser requires a $ 500 donation and $ 5,800 for a VIP private reception. The Walker campaign raised $ 3.7 million in the quarter ended Sept. 30, it said Monday.

Viviano-Langlais is a filmmaker and antagonist of mandatory mask and vaccines. Published accounts indicate that Viviano-Longlice, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, along with GOP-favored Dallas Jewish Orthodox in March after the removal of the state mask order, hosted a “Texas is Open” mask at her home in Parker, Texas.

Syringe swastika has been featured in protests against vaccine orders in the United States and other parts of the world. Jewish groups have condemned the sign.

Allison Padilla-Goodman, vice president of the Southern Division of the Anti-Defamation League, said comparing vaccines to Nazism was “a common and difficult tool for political gain.”

Padilla-Goodman said in a statement: “Those who link the atrocities committed by the Nazis to modern public health policies must withdraw their shameless comparisons, take responsibility, and stop exploiting Jewish suffering as a political strategy.” “We are happy to see the fundraiser canceled, and the hosts’ behavior is condemned as offensive.”
