Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill) was caught on camera, making controversial remarks last week by CREDO SuperPAC, an anti-tea party group. He was telling his constituents that Democrats want Hispanics to be dependent on government and that African-Americans already are.
“They want the Hispanic vote, they want Hispanics to be dependent on government, just like they got African-Americans dependent on government. That’s their game…” “So many people want hand-outs. The Democratic Party promises groups of people everything.” Jessie Jackson would be out of work if they weren’t dependent on government.”
Here is the video:
Walsh, who was elected in 2010, is known for controversial statements. Last April, he told his constituents that Obama was elected because he’s black. He said that electing the first black American president “made us feel good about [our]self.”
Walsh is also a deadbeat dad who owes over $100,000 in child support and despite having enough money to care for and support his children, he’s continued to refuse to pay his ex-wife.
Ask ANY member of the Tea Party if they’re racist and you’ll get a most emphatic and defensive “NO!!!!” If you are a liberal and pose the question, you’ll more than likely be accused of being the racist in the room. No one in the Tea Party are racist, just ask any of them. Part of their argument as to why they’re not racist is that we have an African-American president. “ How can we be racist??? Our President is black.” They seem to conveniently forget that liberals voted him in, not the birthers.
The Republican Party has stood in the way of everything the Democrats have wanted to do to improve the economy and to get America back to work. When Obama says he’ll go along with a Republican idea, all of a sudden, they hate and reject it. John Boehner makes a negative statement about it with his sourpuss face and the entire party acts as if Obama has held them all down as they were crying and cut off all their hair. This is their intended strategy. Keep the economy depressed, employment down and tell all those lazy people to just go get a job! By the time November 6 rolls around, everyone will be so convinced that it was actually the Obama administration that impeded growth and steered this country in the wrong direction, that we will vote for a robot who wears magic underwear and says he’s not worried about the poor.
They do and say anything. It’s working in their own party. With the 24-hour news cycle, people are bombarded with information and the theory that if you hear a lie long enough, you eventually believe it, is true. Even if the lie is disproved at a later date, the belief that Obama is a Muslim, Communist, Socialist, radical Liberal who wants to take away your guns and force you to take birth control is now the Tea Party’s truth. It’s utterly ridiculous yet they are succeeding because the underlying problem is racism.
