Somebody please make the stupid people shut up!
If you remember former U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill) you remember a teabaggy asshole who seemed determined to have his face on the nightly news saying idiotic and offensive things on a daily basis, until he was rolled out of office by Tammy Duckworth in the last Congressional elections. Now, he's just another "former" politician marketing himself as some sort of oracle for talk radio. (heavy sigh...)
As the 50th anniversary of the historic March on Washington approached, Walsh took to the airwaves to read his own rephrasing of Martin Luther King's iconic "I have a dream" speech, and in it he lectured black Americans on taking responsibility for their lot in life. Here are the salient points from Walsh's little speech:
I have a dream that all black parents will have the right to choose where their kids attend school.
I have a dream that all black boys and girls will grow up with a father.
I have a dream that young black men will stop shooting other young black men.
I have a dream that all young black men will say "no" to gangs and to drugs.
I have a dream that all black young people will graduate from high school.
I have a dream that young black men won't become fathers until after they're married and they have a job.
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.
Isn't that nice? A lily white man lecturing blacks on lifestyle decisions, a mere two years after being sued by his ex-wife for being over $117K behind in child support payments.
Yeah, everyone listen up! Joe Walsh wants to give you some dreamy advice about doing the right thing...
