Deadbeat dad and Tea Party loudmouth, GOP Rep Joe Walsh sat down for an interview and said that the media will protect Obama because he's black. Walsh has already proven himself to be one of the most divisive pols in the most divisive congress in recent history, but this one takes the cake.

Joe Walsh: Media Will Protect Obama Because He Is Black (VIDEO)

A recent crop of bad press has not stopped U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) from making his usual media rounds this week. On Wednesday, after being named among Congress's thirteen "most corrupt" representatives, Walsh sat down with the Media Research Center’s Brent Bozell to discuss the mainstream media's alleged "protection" of President Obama, claiming the president's race protects him from criticism.

Bozell, a conservative talk show host, brought up the Tea Party's love for African American GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain before accusing the Obama administration of "playing class warfare and race warfare games." He went on to say that the national media is "aiding and abetting" that agenda, and Walsh agreed, referring to the president as "this guy."

"This guy pushed every one of the media’s buttons," Walsh said. "He was liberal, he was different, he was new, he was black. Oh my God, it was the potpourri of everything. They are so vested in our first black president not being a failure that it’s going to be amazing to watch the lengths they go to protect him. [The media], I believe, will spout this racist line if some of their colleagues up here aren’t doing it aggressively enough. There is going to be a real desperation."

In May, Walsh told Slate's David Weigel that Obama was elected because he was black and "articulate," and once again accused the media of being "in love" with the president.

“Why was he elected? Again, it comes back to who he was. He was black, he was historic," Walsh said. "And there’s nothing racist about this. It is what it is. If he had been a dynamic, white, state senator elected to Congress he wouldn’t have gotten in the game this fast. This is what made him different.

If he said it he's wrong. The media didn't protect Clarence Thomas or Dr. Condie Rice. As a matter of fact nobody ever apologized for the racist cartoon showing Dr. Rice in slave mammy clothes. The media protects Obama because he is is a democrat and they love him because he is a neo-socialist.

Right...But he's also their political affirmative discrimination totem.
