AAt this point, it’s baffling that anyone would believe a word that comes out of the Senate candidate and Sunken Place HOA president’s mouth. Herschel walker.
Actually, it’s not that confusing. Walker is a GOP favorite because the GOP deals with misinformation, propaganda and appeasement of white people and all black conservatives have to do is fight their way to a seat at the white nationalist table. Still, Walker is slowly but surely becoming the king of “fake until you make it” on these right-wing streets and his followers just don’t seem to care.
Either way, it turns out the guy whose campaign lied about his credentials and business success also promoted health products that really aren’t as healthy as they should be. Shocking, I know.
According to a review by the Atlanta Journal-ConstitutionWalker spent a few decades being the black version of Dr. Sebi promoting so-called health products that his own companies had to admit weren’t backed by medical science.
From the AJC:
He sought to ‘revolutionise’ the health market with products he said would prevent aging, help with weight loss and even protect against the harm of smoking, despite little evidence, his company admitted in papers. filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.
In many cases, the products were commercial failures, cost Walker and his business partners millions of dollars and put his companies in debt, for which creditors repeatedly sued Walker and his associates to recover, as the revealed by previous report by the AJC.
For example, Walker’s company, Renaissance Man, Inc., developed and sold an aloe drink called—I don’t fuck you—Aloe-Lu-Ya. Walker’s company promoted the drink claiming it contained “ActiVin,” which AJC described as “a grape seed extract that the company’s marketing claimed protected against cigarette smoking damage, among other benefits.” The company later admitted that the product was a “commercial failure”.
But in 2002, when Renaissance Man, Inc. merged with American Consolidated Mining Co. and was renamed American Consolidated Management Group (ACMG), Walker’s company began developing Sunutra, which was generally a repackaging of Aloe-Lu-Ya.
More from AJC:
In its marketing, the company bragged about the “phytonutrients” in Sunutra, a plant extract that included three to five servings of fruits and vegetables per serving. These phytonutrients reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, etc., the company said in government documents.
The company noted, however, in its legally required disclosures to Wall Street investors, that the medical community does not share this view.
“These beliefs are not supported by medical evidence generally accepted by the medical community,” the company said in a filing with the SEC.
This is the part where I remind you all that in 2020 Walker claimed he knew of a magical mist one could spray in a doorway that would “clean you of COVID when you walk through”. Suffice it to say, Walker’s COVID-away abraca-damn-bruh (you’re stupid) haze is also “unsupported by medical evidence generally accepted by the medical community.”
Why is anyone still listening to this man? Don’t answer that. We know why.
