Former Chicago Congressman Joe Walsh took to Twitter Thursday evening to question why he was taken off his own show for using racial slurs.

Walsh, who has hosted “The Joe Walsh Show” on a conservative Chicago radio station since early 2013, took to Twitter to complain about being cut off by the station’s management. Walsh, by his own account, used several epithets during a discussion on the Redskins’ controversial name, including the n-word.

    It’s good to know where the line is.

    Most of us figure it out by the fifth grade, but no one accused Joe of being a quick learner.

    ugly expressions all!!!!!!!! but in the pure sense, he’s right or is it against the law to blindly hate and express the hate – conundrum for the too politically correct.

      It’s not the law, it’s the market.

    Nothing in life is in the ‘pure sense’, everything is in context. All language is contextual. Taking one word that is becoming more widely recognized as offensive and comparing it to another that brings up historic violence and present violence only makes sense if you leave out the rest of reality.

    Joe Walsh is a huge dildo, not to mention a complete idiot. Is it any wonder Tammy Duckworth trounced him in the last election.

    Pay your Child-Support Joe Walsh.

    So much for open talking, some of these guys deserve the name.

    Simply put, Joe, the station doesn’t want to lose its FCC license — which your use of racist slurs jeopardizes.
