After the journal Constitution published a piece on the event, the profile was changed to a picture that read, “By God, Texas.”
A campaign spokesman initially told the newspaper that the symbol was “clearly a mandatory vaccination graphic.” But the campaign. Later it was discontinued.. “Despite the fact that the apparent purpose behind the graphic was to denounce the official vaccine mandate, the symbol used is very aggressive and does not reflect the values of Herschel Walker or his campaign.”
Viviano-Langlais did not immediately respond to a request for comment. But he posted on Twitter on the first Wednesday, “I’m a poster and I deleted it because of the need to silence left-wing free speech. It’s crazy to think that the picture was anti-Semitic. Actually disappointing.” It was a picture shown when fascists demanded that people insert foreign substances into their bodies that they did not want.
Earlier this year, Vivano-Langlis and her husband, Jim Langlis, held a ceremony at their home for the Dallas Jewish Conservatives to mark the lifting of Governor Greg Abbott’s Quaid 19 ban and a mask-burning fire. Was also included.
Walker is among the candidates seeking a GOP nomination to remove Sen. Trump has backed Walker in the race.
Although some right-wing activists have defended the use of the swastika in protest of the vaccine order, Jewish groups have condemned the use of the symbol.
“Herschel Walker defended Sostika, and canceling the fundraiser does not change the fact that he failed to condemn the hateful, anti-Semitic symbol,” Democratic Party of Georgia spokesman Dan Gottlieb said in a statement.
