Just when I think Joe Walsh couldn’t be any more offensive, it gets worse. At a town hall this Sunday, Walsh said of Tammy Duckworth’s military service, “Now I’m running against a woman who, my God, that’s all she talks about. Our true heroes, it’s the last thing in the world they talk about.”
I think it’s time we teach Joe Walsh a lesson about true heroism. Tell Walsh that all of our Veterans are heroes and that we can never recognize them enough for their service.
This isn’t about Walsh insulting Tammy - it’s about the 24 million Veterans who have served our country with honor. I’m proud of my military record and I can’t believe that, on the eve of the 4th of July, Walsh wants Vets to shut up about their courage in defending our nation.
This isn’t the first time Walsh has made disparaging remarks about Tammy, her service and Veterans. Remember when he told Politico, “"What else has she done? Female, wounded veteran ... ehhh."
Enough is enough. Tell Joe Walsh to treat our Veterans with the respect they have earned.
