Former Republican Congressman Joe Walsh could give two poopies about Jimmy Kimmel’s heart-damaged baby. He knows who to blame. Diversity. “Those” people.
Raw Story reports:
After former Congressman Joe Walsh (R-IL) tweeted criticism of Jimmy Kimmel’s heartfelt and politically-charged monologue regarding his newborn son’s health, people have slammed the conservative Twitter personality for his lack of compassion — but he took it steps further when blaming high U.S. healthcare costs on America’s “inner cities”.
Say “inner cities” and watch the racist ears perk up. It’s almost like a whistle that can only be heard by some sort of animal. A dog, perhaps.
Appearing on MSNBC with host Ali Velshi, Walsh refused to believe any of the statistics Velshi presented him with, including that the US scored lower than 10 other countries for healthcare outcomes due to their universal healthcare systems. Walsh claimed one “can’t compare” the US to other developed nations, and when Velshi asked why, his answer was telling.
“Because they do not have our large inner city diverse populations,” Walsh replied, presumably referring to communities of color in large metropolitan areas. The ex-congressman has been accused of racism in the past.
Well then, we suppose the answer is simple. Take all the health care away from those dirty “diverse” people, let them die in squalor. Then there will be plenty of health care for decent folks, like child-support dodger Joe Walsh.
