* If Joe Walsh was hoping to gin up a right-wing backlash at WIND radio for kicking him off the air, it ain’t working…
Tomorrow’s Plainfield Township GOP Fundraiser that was to feature radio talk show hosts Dan Proft and Joe Walsh will now be featuring Proft only.
Sources tell Illinois Review the change came after Proft informed the organizers that he would not share the stage with Walsh.
When asked, Proft told IR:
“It is very simple. I am not going to participate in events with individuals who think it is okay to purposely and repeatedly use the N-word and other racial epithets as part of what they believe is appropriate public (or, for that matter, private) discourse.
People can and should think freely, speak freely and freely associate as they like. I choose to reject the thinking and the language Joe Walsh unapologetically evinced and freely not associate with it.”
In response, Walsh told IR that he would continue to “combat political correctness.”
Walsh’s 15 minutes are just about up, methinks.
