Deadbeat Dad Joe Walsh Receives ‘Family Values’ Recognition

Remember deadbeat dad and US House Rep. Joe Walsh of Illinois? Well, the SPLC-listed hate group Family Research Council has awarded him their ‘True Blue’ designation for, wait for it, his unwavering dedication and support to the family. Seriously.

“We thank Cong. Walsh who has voted consistently to defend faith, family and freedom,” said FRCA President Tony Perkins. “Cong. Walsh and other ‘True Blue Members’ have voted to repeal Obamacare, de-fund Planned Parenthood, end government funding for abortion within the health care law, uphold the Defense of Marriage Act, and continue support for school choice. I applaud their commitment to uphold the institutions of marriage and family.”

I guess you don’t have to actually support your own family to be a supporter of family. Walsh is being sued for over $100K in back child support and claims he can’t pay, yet went on a European vacation with his girlfriend and loaned his campaign over $35,000.

See, it’s just the sick and twisted general concept of family they’re interested in - one where reproductive rights are subjugated to patriarchal, theocratic politicians and homosexuality doesn’t exist. That kind of “family”. Not the actual one that Walsh has and fails to actually support.
