Chicago Radio: Joe Walsh OFF WIND After Racial Slurs

According to posts on former U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh’s Twitter account Thursday night, the conservative radio talk-show host was kicked off the air on WIND-560 AM for using racial slurs while trying to have a discussion about racial slurs.

In a series of tweets posted about 7 p.m.,

The posts said the discussion involved the ethical debate about the name of the pro football team in Washington, D.C.: the Redskins.

Walsh is the host of the weeknight “Joe Walsh Show” on WIND from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

On his website, Walsh describes his on-air attitude: “I do with this program what I did as a U.S. Congressman — speak plainly, speak directly, not worry about political correctness, and engage in respectful, engaging debate with all viewpoints. This is just too important of a time for all of us to do anything less.”

Walsh was a tea party-backed member of the House from the northwest suburbs who took office in 2011 and was unseated two years later by Democrat Tammy Duckworth.
