Former Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh – now a talk show host for WIND 560 AM – dared U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch to throw him in jail for publicly criticizing radical Islam.
Walsh’s comments were in response to Lynch’s remarks during a public interview at the Muslim Advocate magazine’s anniversary dinner this week.
Walsh posted on Facebook, “The day after Muslim terrorists killed 14 Americans, Attorney General Loretta Lynch vowed to prosecute anyone who uses ‘anti-Muslim rhetoric’ that ‘edges toward violence.’
“What the hell does that mean? I have a First Amendment right, Ms. Lynch, to say whatever I want about Muslims.”
Congressman to Loretta Lynch “Prosecute Me”The day after Muslim terrorists killed 14 Americans, Attorney General Loretta Lynch vowed to prosecute anyone who uses “anti-Muslim rhetoric” that “edges toward violence.”What the hell does that mean? I have a 1st Amendment right, Ms Lynch, to say whatever I want about Muslims.You want to try and prosecute me for what I say? I dare you. Here goes: Most Muslims around the world are terrorists, support terrorism, and/or support Sharia Law. They are our enemy. I don’t want them in America. Any Muslim that won’t assimilate should get the hell out of America. Any Muslim that is a terrorist or supports terrorism should be killed. If “Moderate” Muslims don’t speak out against terrorism, they are our enemy and we should call them out and kick them out of this country. I hope there is a backlash against Muslims because Islam, as practiced by most Muslims, is not a religion of peace, and all of us who do live in peace should do whatever we can to defeat Islam.There Ms Lynch. As an American, I have a right to say everything I just did. And I will continue to speak the truth about Islam in the hopes that others will wake up to this truth and do what we can to defeat this evil in our midst.Is that “anti-Muslim rhetoric” that “edges toward violence”. Go ahead and prosecute me. I dare you.

In the video, Walsh slammed the statements from the attorney general.
“I can say whatever I want about Christians, Jews or Muslims. I think Islam has a real fricking problem. There is a cancer in Islam. And if they’re not going to learn to assimilate, I don’t want them in this country,” Walsh said.
Walsh then dared Lynch to throw him in jail by saying statements she warned against.
“I think Islam is evil. I think Islam has a huge problem. I think most Muslims around the world are not compatible with American values. I don’t want them here.
“You know what? You’re worried about a backlash against Muslims? Fourteen Americans were killed three days ago and you come out and say your greatest fear is anti-Muslim backlash.
“Well you know what? I hope there is a backlash. There should be a backlash,” Walsh declared. “I’m going to encourage a backlash.
“And you know what, Loretta Lynch? If that bothers you, prosecute me. Throw me in jail,” the former congressman ended.
