He needs to have rotten vegetables thrown at him.

No surprise coming from the jackass who dissed Ms. Duckworth.

Let's goolge a quick tally of this week's terrorism related deaths. From the first page of results:

Saturday, August 4: 45 dead, 40 wounded in Yemen by a suspected al-Qaeda suicide bomber. They were civilian militia fighters attending a funeral.

Sunday, August 5: 8 dead, 9 wounded in Nigeria when a suicide bomber, thought to be a member of Boko Haram, drove a car up to a military checkpoint. Of the eight dead, two were civilians. The remaining dead & wounded were soldiers.

Wednesday, August 8: 7 confirmed dead, unknown number wounded in two separate attacks in Afghanistan. In the first incident "...two attackers wearing suicide vests detonated their explosives as a NATO foot patrol passed by the headquarters of the provincial government, provincial police chief Ewas Mohammad Naziri said." Three NATO service members and one Afghan civilian were killed. The Taliban quickly claimed responsibility. (I guess they were proud of their evil deed.//)

In the second incident a bus hit a roadside bomb while traveling in an area where insurgents had been battling Afghan police since earlier in the day for control of the road. Three were confirmed dead, and an unknown number were wounded. According to a victim:

One of the wounded men spoke to The Associated Press by telephone from the hospital. Abdullah, 52, said his wife was killed by the explosion. He said he had counted at least two more bodies before a villager passing by in a car picked up him, his wounded son and one of the bodies, taking them all to the hospital.

Abdullah was wounded by shrapnel in the forehead and the shoulder. He said the body of his wife was still at the scene along with several wounded people.

"They were shouting for help, but nobody was there to help them," said Abdullah, who like many Afghans uses just one name. He added that the car he escaped in had no more room and ambulances could not reach the bus because of fighting.

It was unclear by late Wednesday if the battle had ended or if the bus passengers had been rescued.

Friday, August 10: 5 dead, 70 wounded in Iraq when a suicide bomber drove a truck into a Shi'ite mosque during Friday prayers.

If my math is correct, that's 65 dead and 119+ wounded. In one week. And that was just a cursory search.

Joe Walsh needs to pull his head out and stop scare mongering. A LOT of innocent people are dying thanks to radical Muslim terrorists, and the vast majority happen to be Muslim themselves.

If his district includes Elgin, I need to remind my extended family to vote for Duckworth and help get rid of this toxic turd.

I'm sure when Tammy Duckworth beats him in the election, it will be all the Muslim Brotherhood's fault. Guy's a joke.

I didn't forget. Walsh is a wingnut; Americans are supposed to be concerned about being killed by Muslims, not white neo-Nazis. I'm pretty sure that in his world white non-Muslims cannot possibly be terrorists. Unless they're "leftists"...
