WHY "COMING TOGETHER" IS AN EXERCISE IN FUTILITY
Ex-Rep. Joe Walsh Deletes Tweet Threatening 'war' On Obama
Ex House Representative from Illinois, Joe Walsh, is now a conservative talk show host. He once derided Representative Tammy Duckworth - who lost both of her legs in Iraq - as not worthy of being called a war hero. The title of his show is: "The New Voice of Freedom" and promotes radical right wing policies.
On March 25, 2013, Walsh aired his first radio show on Chicago's talk station WIND-AM 560, accordingly called The Joe Walsh Show, as a conservative political commentator. After less than a year on the air in Chicago, The Joe Walsh Show began airing on WNYM-AM 970 in New York City. In April 2015, WNYM-AM 970 dropped Walsh from its radio platform.
On June 19, 2014, Walsh was removed from his radio show for using racially charged language. He was on air again the next day. WIND general manager Jeff Reisman commented: "During the segment Joe intended to cite several common racial slurs as examples. He did not in any way use them in a defamatory or derogatory manner, simply as examples. However, AM 560 The Answer did not allow them to go on the air. AM 560 The Answer has a policy of not using certain words on the air that are highly inflammatory and offensive even in the context of a discussion of why those words are offensive."
Below is what Walsh tweeted yesterday after the killing of 5 police officers in Dallas, Texas:
