Joe Walsh ADMITS to Making Racist Statements, But Then Instantly Says He’s Not Racist

Wait…what?

Former Congressman Joe Walsh is running for president as a Republican, for whatever reason.

Although he has a history of racist tweets, Joe says he’s not a racist.

And yet, he admits saying racist things. Hmmm.

Joe Walsh on MSNBC: “I wouldn’t call myself a racist, but I’ve said racist things on Twitter.”

JOHN HEILEMANN: You’ve apologized for helping to spawn Trump and for going too far. For a lot of people, the president is a stone-cold racist and so are you. I can sit here and read off tweets: “Barack Obama’s a Muslim,” “Barack Obama was born in Kenya.”

I’ve got tweets with you using the N-word, not that long ago. You can apologize for various things. Apologizing for burping at the table or using the wrong fork with your main course is different than offering some kind of a genuine recognition — not just “I said things that were offensive” — but “I’m a racist, I’ve said racist stuff.” There’s no way someone who — to many African-Americans, looks like as much as a racist as Donald Trump — has the moral standing to challenge Donald Trump.

JOE WALSH: I wouldn’t call myself a racist, but I would say, John, I’ve said racist things on Twitter. There’s no doubt about it. And an apology is not enough. When I said Barack Obama was a Muslim, that was a horrible thing to say. And I said it because I was so disgusted with Obama’s policy towards Israel, that I went a bad, ugly step. The Sandy Hook moms, I took a cheap shot against them three years ago because they were suing gun manufacturers, an issue that I disagree with. So I took a bad, cheap shot against them. I’ve done that.

But, John, again, context, I’ve probably sent out 40,000 tweets in the last six years, no excuse, you and I could sit down and find 200 to 300 that you’d say, “Walsh, what were you thinking?” All I can do is own them and explain them and apologize as sincerely as I can for those that deserve an apology.

WATCH:

Walsh has sent what some would consider pretty dicey tweets in the past.

For example…

Obama is a Muslim

Happy New Year!

He calls Trump a “cheap cracker.” On national TV.

Would a comedian still have a job if he called Obama a “n*****?

Imagine if he had called him the biggest f***** in the league.

A professional hockey player was just suspended for 1 game for using the word “f**” during a game last night.

The pussification of America.

Loretta Lynch, this is America dammit! I have a right to say whatever I want about Muslims. If Muslims don’t like it, they can leave.

Dig?

Save conservative media!

Dozens Of Cops Quit The Force As Seattle Council ‘Defunds Police’

Published

on

The Seattle City Council voted on Monday to cut the Seattle Police Department’s budget, as many cops leave the force as a result of all the hostilities pointed at them from local leadership. The city council held a vote to defund the police, which was passed 8-1. This measure will slash the budget by 18 percent. Granted, radical activists wanted to see the budget cut by 50 percent, but this is still a devastating number. via Daily Wire: Such a move will leave many vacant jobs on the force unfilled and require 911 dispatchers and parking enforcement to be moved outside of SPD jurisdiction. As of Oct. 31, 134 officers have left the force, according to the mayor’s office. In October alone, 23 have thrown in the towel. Democratic Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan expressed her support for the budget, saying in a statement, “I applaud the City Council for taking a more deliberate and measured approach to the 2021 Seattle Police Department budget than occurred this summer which led to the resignation of former SPD Chief Carmen Best.” Nikkita Oliver, a radical Black Lives Matter activist who played a leadership role in city’s short-lived Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (or CHAZ) last summer, said during a virtual meeting after the vote: These are all really exciting things that have been won after many, many years of mobilizing and partnering together. They’ve been won because of the uprising and defense of Black lives, and the many people who put their feet to the ground, who have made calls, sent emails, and organized their communities. The president of the Seattle Police Officers Guild, Mike Solan, wasn’t quite as excited about the vote, referring to the council as “naive” and warned that the response to calls coming in to 911 would take longer to…

New Poll Says Trump Will Retain Power Over Republican Party

Published

on

According to a brand new poll, President Donald Trump is going to keep a lot of power and influence over the Republican Party and, should he not get a second term, will be the heavy favorite to become the 2024 GOP nominee. The poll was conducted by Morning Consult/Politico, and says Trump is already at the top of a list of 14 potential presidential candidates, with 68 percent of GOP voters saying they consider Trump to be the most in touch with the party’s rank and file members. via Newsmax: The poll, conducted from Nov. 21-23 among 669 Republicans and 1,990 voters overall, comes as Trump and many in the party are challenging the election. Newsmax has not called the election. The poll also showed: 71% of Republican voters say Trump is effective and committed to the country’s best interests, but just 17% say the same of congressional Republicans. 56% say Trump is predominantly looking out for the party’s best interests. 54% said they’d back Trump in a primary contest. 12% said they’d back Vice President Mike Pence. 8% would back Donald Trump Jr. against his father. 4% of Republicans each said they would support Texas Sen. Ted Cruz or former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley. Other members of the GOP, such as Sens. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, Rick Scott of Florida, and Josh Hawley of Missouri, got even less support for a potential 2024 presidential bid. President Trump has made it clear already that he wants to continue being influential in the Republican Party. He’s kept Ronna McDaniel as the chair to the Republican National Committee and has already built a political action committee. What this means is that if the left succeeds in stealing this election, they might be ousting Trump from the White House, but they are…
