Drudge, Former Rep. Joe Walsh React To Dallas Shooting With Racism And Hate

They are particularly despicable.
Drudge, Former Rep. Joe Walsh React To Dallas Shooting With Racism And Hate

Shame on Matt Drudge for that headline when no one knows yet who committed the horrible crimes in Dallas last night. Shame on him for assuming the shooters were Black people when there are no reports yet as to the race or even genders of the suspects.

But the real walk of shame belongs to former Representative and Deadbeat Dad Joe Walsh, who tweeted threats to the President of the United States along with a stream of racist hate.

This tweet from Walsh, now deleted, could possibly be one of the most despicable tweets I've ever seen.

After many people reported it to the U.S. Secret Service, he deleted the tweet, but that didn't stop him from continuing his despicable rant.

This one is especially despicable, because again -- there is absolutely no evidence now, or at the time he tweeted this, that the suspects are black.

He followed that one up with this one immediately after:

And then, after he was roundly criticized and had his tweets sent to the Secret Service, he tweeted this:

To repeat: There is no evidence that the shootings had anything to do with the protest other than providing an opportunity to pick off a lot of police officers at once. There is no evidence that the suspects are Black, because police have not released the names, identifications, or races of the suspects.

But it sure didn't take much for Drudge and Walsh to come to that conclusion. This is the heart of the problem right here -- the presumption of guilt.
