Hideous beliefs

Now that former Congressman Joe Walsh’s racial insensitivity was recently exposed again, will Republican candidate Steve Reick disavow his political godfather? Sadly, it is probably too much to hope. Walsh was temporarily suspended from his AM talk radio show recently for using the ‘N-word’ on air. This is not the first time Walsh has gone on record using divisive and offensive terms to describe people’s race, gender, religion or sexual preference, and I think from his record as a repeat offender it is safe to say he is a bigot.

Reick is a creation of Walsh. Walsh recently hosted a fundraiser for Reick and is intimately involved in his campaign. If Reick doesn’t disassociate him immediately, he is tacitly condoning Walsh’s recent racist statements, which should then be imputed back to Reick.

These two men should spare the good citizens of the county having to even consider their hideous beliefs and simply go away.
