In perhaps his most ignorant statement yet, Joe Walsh whined on Twitter today about a recent comic by the satirical French magazine Charlie Hebdo. The post depicts flood victims with Nazi flags drowning in the waters of Hurricane Harvey, with the caption “God Exists! He Drowned All the Neo-Nazis of Texas.”
Walsh, as with many Americans, is offended that the comic mocks flood victims, but also felt the need to claim that the magazine “mocks everyone but Muslims” and calls them cowards.
French rag Charlie Hebdo mocks Harvey victims as Neo Nazis
Charlie Hebdo makes fun of everyone but Muslims. Cowards https://t.co/VUnXuN1ARy

Hey Joe, remember that mass shooting back in 2015 where Al-Qaeda terrorists killed 12 people and injured many more because the magazine had been mocking Islam? That was Charlie Hebdo.
LoL Only one reason most Americans know what Charlie Hebdo is & it is because they were attacked for making fun of muslims. Dumb stuff Joe.

I feel like I remember there was a whole thing.

Joe Walsh is a performance artist parodying a stupid pundit. Only reasonable explanation.

Not only that, since 2015 Charlie Hebdo has repeatedly mocked Islam and Muslims. Pretty cowardly of them to continue to make fun of something even after terrorists literally killed 12 of them for it, am I right, Joe?
Let me Google that for you, champ.

You might want to Google #JeSuisCharlie and then delete this tweet before any more people see it.

It must be super frustrating for people like Joe Walsh and Donald Trump that the internet exists and regular people know how to use it. It makes it so difficult to just say whatever comes to mind and have people blindly believe it.
