Former Republican Rep. Joe Walsh from Illinois aka that asshole we can always trust to say ridiculous things, thinks the U.S. needs to start racial profiling "young Muslim men," who Walsh described as "our enemy" in war.
"We need to profile, even when it comes to our immigration policy," spat Walsh on MSNBC's Martin Bashir show. "We're at war, and this country got a stark reminder last week again that we're at war. And not only should we take a pause, when it comes to our immigration policy, we need to begin profiling who our enemy is in this war: young Muslim men."
Alright, Joe. Let's unpack that bag of nonsense, shall we? Linking immigration reform to the Boston Marathon bombings is the height of being a fear-mongering jerk, playing at the country's emotional vulnerability to make policy. Add to that a large side of racism with the explicit targeting of a minority group and there you have it: The worst thing you could possibly say ever. Way to go, Joe. It's not easy being so awful. Can't wait for the next time you speak on national television.
