Former Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh, decided it was a good idea to send out a tweet stating “This is now war. Watch out Obama. Watch out black lives matter punks. Real America is coming for you.” Now, if you look at this tweet, one could assume these are threats on the lives of both President Obama, and anyone affiliated with the Black Lives Matter movement. When someone in his position says “Real America”, we know who he is talking about, those “Good ‘Ol Boys”.
According to Walsh, his Twitter account was suspended because of the tweet. Twitter guidelines states that tweets that could be perceived to incite violence are not permitted. Walsh was forced to take the tweet down to allow his Twitter account to be reactivated, but says Twitter deleted it before he could.
Following his tweet, many individuals were calling for his arrest with the threats on the President. Walsh says he has not be contacted by either the F.B.I. or the Secret Service. Walsh also says that he has been flooded with threats and hate messages.
Walsh stated he wasn’t calling for violence against President Obama, he wants us to defend our cops.
I wasn't calling for violence, against Obama or anyone. Obama's words & BLM's deeds have gotten cops killed. Time for us to defend our cops.

This country will not move forward with the current state of race in this country. The problem lies when you have individuals, Congressman, like Joe Walsh, spewing ignorance and hate.
