‘Real America Is Coming After You’ — Former GOP Rep. Calls For Race War, Threatens Obama

America

America has had a very bad week. Just this week in Louisiana, 37-year-old Alton Sterling was shot and killed by police officers during a scuffle. Right after, 32-year-old Philando Castile was killed in Minnesota by a police officer during a traffic stop. Both men were black.

America has seen this tragic pattern before and the protests were imminent. Until just over six hours ago the protests were peaceful as people marched all across major cities in America.

As it stands now though, in the early hours of July 8 in Dallas, TX, 11 officers have been shot with five dying.  

While most Americans are shocked and disgusted by the violence, there are some that are using these tragedies to stir fear and hate. One such lowlife is former GOP Rep. Joe Walsh.

The former Rep. of Illinois has taken to Twitter to not only stir up the racial tension, but also to threaten President Obama. Over the last four hours here are some of his pathetic tweets.

There is also one that he evidently had second thoughts about posting. As Mediaite reports, Walsh deleted this tweet, but not before someone got a screengrab of it.

In this tweet he seems to try and walk back on his tough talk.

So all that racist and hateful ranting was just love and understanding Joe? It was a call to stop the violence and work together? Nice try you pathetic spineless jackass.

With all of the pathetic and hateful tweets, Walsh seems to have forgotten what Obama said just yesterday. As CBS News reported, Obama stated:

“When people say ‘black lives matter,’ that doesn’t mean blue lives don’t matter. That just means all lives matter…Change has been too slow. We have to have a greater sense of urgency about this.”

What a stark difference between a hateful racist and a true strong leader. One person that was not going to let Walsh walk away unscathed in the Twitterverse though was Montel Williams. His thoughts were loud and clear when he posted:

Montel wasn’t done yet:

Something has to give with this “police versus citizen” mentality. We have enough danger without this type of violence amongst ourselves.

The majority of police officers do their best to look out for their communities. At the same time, not every person of color is a threat. People like Joe Walsh are.

Our thoughts go out to the officers that lost their lives, the officers affected by this tragedy, and to all of their loved-ones.
