Wow, just wow. ...... Grand Wizard Joe Walsh at it again.


Joe Walsh Commemorates March On Washington With Racially-Charged 'I Have A Dream' Rant


Nearly a year removed from a one-term stint in office, former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) commemorated the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington with an eyebrow-raising list of issues he believes are plaguing the black community.

In an address on his radio show billed as "My Own Dream For America," Walsh unleashed a line of racially-charged comments, headed by his view that African-Americans suffer from "dependency on the government plantation."

From Walsh's show's website:

.....(snip).....
I have a dream that young unmarried black women will say "no" to young black men who want to have sex.
I have a dream that today's black leadership will quit blaming racism and "the system" for what ails black America.
I have a dream that black America will take responsibility for improving their own lives.
I have a dream that one day black America will cease their dependency on the government plantation, which has enslaved them to lives of poverty, and instead depend on themselves, their families, their churches, and their communities.


Walsh was soundly defeated in Nov. 2012 by Rep. Tammy Duckworth (D). The Tea Party favorite has turned heads with race-related remarks in the past, headed by his belief that President Barack Obama is "a historic figure" who was only elected because he is black. ....................(more)

1. I have a dream that the Tea Party ends up like it's namesake:

wet, underwater and swirling out to sea from the harbor.

19. Really.

Just substitute "White" for "Black" in his rant and it reads just as well. Especially appropriate for the good old boy red states.

2. Aha there it is

I have a dream that young unmarried black women will say "no" to young black men who want to have sex.


Quick test
1. What stereotype is it of black women?
2. What does it historically ignore?
3. Can black women even be raped?


I think he'd fail this test - how about you marmar? You think he would pass or fail?

9. 1920's I know they were doing that as late as the late 70's

on July 19, 1977 I was in Hernando, Mississippi with two other guys and we saw a glow on a hill not too far away. When we got to the place where the glow was we saw a cross burning and were invited in not very polite terms to leave immediately!

7. Joe Walsh (the musician) should write a song about that moron

Something along the lines of, "it ain't me, don't equate me with that fool
I'm entirely too cool
He's a fucking tool
and should not be allowed to pollute the gene pool"
Ok, it kinda sucks. But Joe Walsh, not joe walsh, is a professional musician and a good one. joe walsh is apparently a professional dumbass. He's pretty good at it too.

It'd be cool if he did that. I don't know anything about the real Joe Walsh's politics though.

...that came true.

That you would get your sorry ass kicked by one of the most inspirational women of our generation. That you would, in turn, become irrelevant and packed away in an obscure radio show.

Carry on...

22. Of course not

How they manage to juggle the hypocrisy and cognitive dissonance in their 'brains' without a single thought to how it appears to thinking people is beyond me.

But this is how the Rush Limbaughs preach to their marks: It's not the hardworking white man who's the problem when he's down on his luck, it's the lazy handout n****r. And the white taxpayers (more cognitive dissonance) are footing the welfare bill.

President Barack Obama is just another n&* %($ to these assholes, as are all the african-americans who don't fit his stereotypes. No matter how much we achieve, some ignorant, backwater hick thinks he can lecture us about what we need to do. FUCK YOU and all the morans who think like you.

23. +1000. The condescension to this POTUS is a giveaway.

He hasn't learned, he needs to be made to understand, he hasn't grasped the idea that, someone needs to show him, and on and on and on.

It's all about portraying a black POTUS as a lesser being who can't understand the complexities of the big important office to which he somehow managed to get elected.
