Congressman Joe Walsh told the Media Research Center‘s Brent Bozell that the media will do whatever it takes to protect President Obama because he’s black. “This guy pushed every one of the media’s buttons. 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.”
In an interview posted on CNS.com, the Illinois representative, who is greatly admired among Tea Party activists, sat down with the conservative media critic to discuss what the mainstream media will do to help President Obama in his reelection efforts.
“You see this administration playing class warfare and race warfare games,” said Bozell. “Now, that’s their problem. But what does it say about the national media that they are aiding and abetting this by not exposing the dishonesty here?”
Walsh explained that the media will desperately go through great lengths to protect a black, liberal president.
WALSH: Reagan was beautiful because Reagan simplified everything, so let’s simplify it. This guy pushed every one of the media’s buttons. 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. They [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.
Earlier this year, Walsh said President Obama was only elected because be he was an “articulate black man” and “liberal guilt.”
