Ex-Rep. Joe Walsh kicked off the air over racist terms on radio Fri, 06/20/2014 - 3:37am Mitch Dudek
According to posts on former U.S. Rep. Joe Walshs Twitter account Thursday night, the conservative radio talk-show host was kicked off the air on WIND-AM (560) for using racial slurs while trying to have a discussion about racial slurs.
In a series of tweets posted about 7 p.m., Walsh says: Just got kicked off the air until further notice. Tried to have honest discussion about racist terms and management censored my language.
And: Im trying to have an honest, adult conversations about words without resorting to alphabet soup phrases (C-word, N-word, etc).
The posts said the discussion involved the ethical debate about the name of the pro football team in Washington, D.C.: the Redskins.
Walsh is the host of the weeknight Joe Walsh Show on WIND from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The communists of America want no open discussion.

But it’s ok for the (C)rappers
I have a mansion forget the price
Ain’t never been there they tell me it’s nice
I live in hotels tear out the walls
I have accountants pay for it all
They say I’m crazy but I have a good time
I’m just looking for clues at the scene of the crime
Life’s been good to me so far
My Maserati does 185
I lost my license now I don’t drive
I have a limo ride in the back
I lock the doors in case I’m attacked
I’m making records my fans they can’t wait
They write me letters tell me I’m great
So I got me an office gold records on the wall
Just leave a message maybe I’ll call
It’s not possible to have a “mature” conversation about race or anything with any minority group, they are to immature to have to conversation. It’s not whites holding up better race relations, it’s them.
I love that song. He’s one of my favorite git’ pickers
Joe Walsh was born and raised in North Barrington, Illinois, the fifth of nine children. He graduated from Barrington High School, attended Grinnell College (Iowa), and has a BA in English from the University of Iowa.
He has a Masters in Public Policy from the University of Chicago and has dedicated his life to service and limited government advocacy, working with such organizations as Jobs for Youth, The Heartland Institute, The Daniel Murphy Scholarship Foundation, The Milton and Rose Friedman Foundation, and the American Education Reform Council. He has also taught American Government and American History at the Hebrew Theological College and at Oakton Community College.
Elected to the United States Congress in 2010, Joe refused his Congressional health benefits and pensions, slept in his office, limited himself to no more than three terms in office, and held more townhall meetings than any member of Congress.
He was one of the most outspoken and well known tea party members of Congress, becoming a lead advocate for the Balanced Budget Amendment, term limits, tax cuts, cutting off pay for members of Congress if they didnt pass a budget, Second Amendment rights, and the State of Israel. He served on the Small Business Committee, the Committee on Homeland Security, and the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
He received the highest possible ratings on freedom and limited government from The Club for Growth, Freedom Works, and Heritage Action.
He lives in McHenry, Illinois, with his wife Helene. Between them, they have five children.
Hmmm, Lets’ see...
Walsh identifies with the Republican party and WIND promotes itself as a conservative radio station.
While both those statements are dubious to chicago-area conservatives (like you, KL), it is good enough reason for WIND management to “run scared” of Dhimmicrat activists.
That’s exactly right.
Fascism, the new America, soon, very soon conservative talk shows will be banned because they offend liberals with the truth.
THANK YOU! Thought I was the only one
Need more people like him. Surprised he came out of Illinois
Nobody holding a club behind their back wants to discuss the club they’re hiding behind their back.
Yes, WIND will most likely replace Joe with someone like the more ‘moderate’ Michael ‘deadhead’ Medved who bumped Savage off WIND.
“In Barack Obama, America has a president who uses the IRS to target and harass conservative, Tea Party, pro-life and pro-Israel groups, who has used the NSA to spy on all Americans, who has used the Department of Justice to attack reporters and now wants to place FCC monitors in newsrooms. We have a president who wielded a Campaign of Pain upon the American people to make them feel his wrath during the partial government shutdown and remind them of what happens when he does not get his way. So, the Obama regimes latest plan should send chills up the spine of every American.
According to The Blaze, the FCC wants to study how news organizations select stories. FOX News reports that the purpose of the proposed Federal Communications Commission study is to identify and understand the critical information needs of the American public, with special emphasis on vulnerable-disadvantaged populations.
I did not understand what those posters were talking about.
Do they really think that guy is the radio host being targeted?
Joking of course I was.
