Former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) was feeling a little left out in yesterday’s celebration of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, so he decided to write a poem. Walsh, who is now a radio talk show host, polluted the airwaves with his own version of  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s famous, “I Have a Dream Speech”.  Because why not? Right?  Walsh cited the ills that are plaguing the black community, even though a couple of them could be directed to him as well.

Walsh doesn’t want the black community to be dependent on the government and take responsibility for their own lives. Well according to Mother Jones, Walsh isn’t the most responsible person either. Walsh’s ex-wife  sued him in 2011 for $117,437 in overdue child support payments. Well ain’t that the pot calling the kettle black.  When the lawsuit broke Walsh was pleading poverty in not making his child support payments, although he managed to loan his campaign fund $35,000 and vacationed in Mexico and Italy.

“I’m only making $175,000 per year as a Congressman. Do you know how hard it is for a Republican to live on only $175,000?” Walsh said. “Think of the burden I’m placing on my kids by not supporting them. Should I hurt them even more by adding to the national debt without personally gaining from it?”

For your reading disappointment enjoyment, here is Walsh’s speech:

My Own Dream For America

I have a dream that all black parents will have the right to choose where their kids attend school.

I have a dream that all black boys and girls will grow up with a father.

I have a dream that young black men will stop shooting other young black men.

I have a dream that all young black men will say “no” to gangs and to drugs.

I have a dream that all black young people will graduate from high school.

I have a dream that young black men won’t become fathers until after they’re married and they have a job.

I have a dream that young unmarried black women will say “no” to young black men who want to have sex.

I have a dream that today’s black leadership will quit blaming racism and “the system” for what ails black America.

I have a dream that black America will take responsibility for improving their own lives.

I have a dream that one day black America will cease their dependency on the government plantation, which has enslaved them to lives of poverty, and instead depend on themselves, their families, their churches, and their communities.

    Well, I can. And what are his dreams for white people? I know! Here is the list below.

    I have a dream white men will stop going on mass shooting sprees.

    I have a dream that white women will stop behaving like whores and getting abortions like it’s in style.

    I have a dream that young white adults and teenagers will stop the binge drinking and random hookups that makes it looks like we have no moral values.

    I have a dream that white people will not account for over 75% of drug use in America.

    I have a dream that white corporate executives like the ones on Wall Street will stop corrupting the system which started the second recession.

    I have a dream that whites will stop bitching and moaning about so-called, nonexistent reverse racism and all other nonsense.

    I have a dream that whites will stop blaming affirmative action on their fail chances to get into a school or job.

    I have a dream that white women will no longer account for such a large percentage in divorces in this country which leave which children to growing up in single parent households.

    I have a dream that whites will stop their dependency on welfare and other social programs where my race represents over 70% of the benefiting parties.

    I have a dream that white people will stop killing other white people to the point where the white on white crime is almost 90%.

    I have a dream that white people will let go of the idea of racial superiority and stop talking about race.

    I have so many dreams for white people, but I can’t see it because I’m too busy obsessing over black people. GOD HELP ME!

    i swear i believe that if we did not exist they would be bored no matter how loud they try to deny it. it’s pretty clear now.

    I have a dream that white men will stop molesting children, stop shooting up schools and movie theaters, pay child support, stop harassing blacks, use their brain, realize the Jesus isn’t white, accept the fact that whites are on food stamps, and leave black people alone!! Is this too much to ask for???
