Seems I was correct about the Racist Scumbag Joe Walsh all along

"Why was [Obama] elected? Again, it comes back to who he was. He was black, he was historic. And there’s nothing racist about this." Racist Scumbag Joe Walsh in 2011.
Driving along the Tri-State I am constantly assailed by billboards for Where does Chicago go for Answers? AM560 The Answer. Portraits of the on-air *cough* talent *cough* are displayed on the billboard. Besides the big lights in toxic conservative talk radio, Sean Hannity and Dennis Miller, a headshot of former Congressman Joe Walsh is also displayed.

Well, Joe Walsh has always been a charlatan as well as a racist scumbag jagoff.

Walsh has been pulled from the 560AM lineup indefinitely because he kept trying to say the racist insult of African-Americans on live air.

It's always aggrieved white conservatives who are just infuriated they can't scream that word out loud whenever and wherever they wish.

So, they invent ways around the societal ban on the word. One way conservatives circumvent the societal taboo on the word is the fabrication of quotes.

The classic Tea Party fabrications involve the Founding Fathers having agreed with the Right-Wingers on every issue. But, when it comes to racism Tea Party types slander President Lyndon Baines Johnson.

The fake quote every duplicitous evil lying conservative believes LBJ said and of which there is no evidence other than the incestuous right-wing internet fart bubble but which they repeat so the can scream the taboo word is, I'll have those [redacted] voting Democrat for 100 years.

This is a maliciously fake quote. It's easy to tell because of the use of term Democrat. But, man do Tea Baggers love to spew it forth. It confirms so much for them and swaddles them in the righteousness of their bigotry.

Ah, but Joe Walsh was such a special Congressman. His putrid record was on par with several of the worst Tea Party bozos.

During the Glorious Clinton Era, Joe Walsh ran for office twice as a 'Fiscally Conservative/Socially Liberal' Illinois Republican, Walsh even went so far as to use President Clinton's phraseology on abortion, declaring he wanted it safe, rare and legal. But, in 2010 he saw an opportunity with the rise of the Koch-funded Tea Party and attached himself to them the way a louse attaches itself to a horse's ass.

Joe Walsh was beloved by Tea Parties across the Nation, of course inside his district Illinois residents knew he stood for nothing, had no ideas and only ran for office in order to free-government supported healthcare coverage and to enrich himself at the taxpayers expense.

Here are some of the disgusting lowlights of despicable Joe's two years in office;

"[T]oo many American Jews aren’t as pro-Israel as they should be."

The October 2011 Chicago Magazine showed the average sale price for the suburban homes around Chicago. Municipalities, like Palatine, Vernon Hills, Mundelein, Lincolnshire, Lake Zurich, in Joe Walsh's former Congressional District all saw their 2011 housing value drop from 2010. Walsh did nothing while the savings of his erstwhile constituents plummeted. Well, he did blame Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and the poor for the housing bubble.

However, here is the truth, Deregulation and Private Sector Banks not Fannie and Freddie caused the Housing Bubble:
During those same explosive three years [2004-2006], private investment banks — not Fannie and Freddie — dominated the mortgage loans that were packaged and sold into the secondary mortgage market. In 2005 and 2006, the private sector securitized almost two thirds of all U.S. mortgages, supplanting Fannie and Freddie, according to a number of specialty publications that track this data.
Barry Ritholtz has an excellent dissection of the Big Zombie Lie. But, the Republicans and Wall Street Thieves will never let go of the Big Zombie Lie and will never let the truth about the effects of their negligent deregulation schemes be spoken.

In March 2011 Joe Walsh and the other 235 Republicans in the US House voted unanimously to continue giving US Taxpayer dollars money to Multinational Oil Companies, while complaining about the budget and blaming President Obama

"You've spent money like a drunken sailor for 3 years," - Joe Walsh. Like most conservative Joe Walsh never spent a day in uniform. But, you know who did? 
R. V. Burgin, a famous Marine who fought at Peleliu and Okinawa, and who joined the US Post Office after the War in The Pacific.

One of the tasks Joe Walsh's rich masters assigned him was voting to destroy the USPS. "If the Postal Service can't compete in the marketplace," then Congressman Walsh shouted. "I am tired of propping it up!"

Of course, conservatives only support Veterans if that Vet recites the Ultra-Reactionary Conservative Agenda of Intolerance, Oppression and Adulation of the Rich. Any deviation and even cowards like Walsh feel safe insulting Veterans in front of their duped conservative drones, 
"I was marching in a parade in Schaumburg (IL), Sunday, two days before the Democratic convention, when Tammy Duckworth was on a stage down in Charlotte (NC) — if you can look at the picture — picking out a dress for her speech Tuesday night.”
But, Joe Walsh outdid himself by going on a screaming red-faced tirade at Melissa Rakestraw, an Illinois resident and Postal worker, who dared to ask him questions. In response, Walsh screamed, "DON'T blame the Banks! I am tired of hearing that crap!" The "crap" being the truth about how the Banks and Wall Street collapsed the US housing market and turned the US economy into a giant gambling ring.

After video of the ignorant puerile Walsh came to light, Rakestraw told interviewers, "[E]arlier I had told him if he supports Darrell Issa‘s bill to reform the Post Office that 200,000 jobs could be lost. 20% of those employees are veterans. Mr. Walsh came up to me and said, ‘I do not care about the loss of public sector jobs.’"

I am continually amazed that people like Walsh even get elected. It is a sad commentary on a segment of the American voter.

Jerry Critter,
Joe Walsh encapsulates so much of the Modern Conservative Leader. In the 1980's he tried acting. As a staunch defender of Personal Responsibility his own life and actions are anything but responsible.

Nowadays he'll say anything and hold any position which affords the slight increase in stature and money the 1% will trickle down upon him. Which includes enslaving his fellow Americans in Wage Slavery.

I too find it disturbing that the wingnuts really really wish they could say the n-word. Limbaugh himself has whined in direct terms of how it's not fair that blacks can say it but whites can't. As if its that hard to understand that all ethnic/religious groups (not just blacks) have certain privileges when it comes to talking about their own community, that outsiders do not have.

I don't know, is this like a real thing? Do people really think a lot about this problem of being allowed to use racial slurs? Maybe I'm crazy , but its simply something I've never really worried about ever in my life.

Walsh's tweets are so hilariously transparent. 'Honest discussion' my ass. The forum is hate radio. Honest discussion has no place on it. It's simply about giving his moron audience hate boners by hearing slurs.

And what does it say about teabaggers like Walsh and Allen West that they couldn't even get past their first terms in the House. One termers in that branch are a special kind of loser, in a branch that's been gerrymandered to the point of 98% incumbency rates. Pathetic.

Great blog by the way.

It sure does show the utter degradation of the GOP into the fringe that not only do they run and elect such insane racists like Walsh or an Allen West, people with prior histories of immoral and unethical behavior, but that elected office is merely a gateway to where the real jackpot is: a career as a shock jock on hate radio or as a FoxNews talking head.

Walsh barely beat out Melissa Bean (a Business Friendly so-called Blue Dog Democrat) winning by 500 or so votes in 2010.

He did nothing, while in Office except make these appearances where he would throw red meat to white conservatives, "Obama won because he was 'black'" and "American jews aren't pro-israel enough" to cement his spot on the Wingnut Welfare gravy train.

Now he's lost that spot at least for the time being.

But, yes you are correct about their transparency, "honest discussion" is white conservative code speak for I'm going to say something super offensive ha-ha!

Now that he has been kicked off his radio perch, will this be the end of Joe Walsh? Probably not. Remember how long Jason Voorhees has lasted?

Unfortunately, folks, Scumbag Joe is still on the air. At least in New York City as of last night.

He even mentioned the controversial things he said last week before taking a call from one of the morons in the audience. Caller notes that its Democrats who are the real racists for setting low standards for a black President via calling anyone who disagrees with him a racist. Joe of course responded "Great point!" and proceeded to rant that liberals are bigots.

God, the whole thing was such a transparent set-up. The whole "libs are the REAL racists" meme is so played out, based on a false premise that liberals say that disagreement is disallowed when it comes to Obama. I have never heard that, but the teabaggers take it for granted. Shows you how little thought the average teabagger puts into their politics.

Hate radio exists to reinforce, excuse, and channel the inherent racism and hatreds of the audience. Nothing more. Walsh is just a particularly cartoonish example of it.

Also, Walsh has now started inciting violence. After the aforementioned call, he called on his audience to stop trying to educate liberals with facts (LOL), because they're impervious to them. Instead, and these are his words, its long past time to fight and pound the liberals down.

The good news is that Walsh is only on the #3 talk station in NYC, 970 AM which has a poor signal and a 3rd rate lineup of Limbaugh clones (Mike Gallaghet, Michael Medved, Dennis Prage, and Dennis Miller) so the harm he does is minimized.
