Joe Walsh of Tea Party Chides Mrs. Obama for Attending Hadiya Pendleton’s Funeral

joe walshHadiya Pendleton lived a short life. She was only fifteen years old when she was shot and killed in a Chicago city park. The shooting came just one week after she returned from Washington DC, where she performed at the Presidential inauguration. She had a life full of promise and was a smart girl that generally everyone liked. She was unfortunately in the wrong place at the wrong time.

There was a “We the People” petition floating around, insisting that President Obama should come to Hadiya’s funeral. Even Reverend Jesse Jackson signed the petition in support of the teen and her family. The President was not able to make it, but his wife Michelle was. She showed up on Saturday for the young girl’s funeral. What seems like a heartfelt act is being criticized by Tea Party Congressman Joe Walsh. He says that the only reason that First Lady Obama showed up at the funeral was for political push.

Walsh sent out a few tweets about the First Lady saying “”Heartbroken” Michelle Obama attending funeral of Hadiya Pendleton. I guess the other 553 murder victims didn’t break her heart. Most of the 553 Chicago murder victims in 2012 & 2013 were young black males. Is she attending this funeral to make a political point?”

Hadiya Pendleton was the 42nd homicide in the city of Chicago this year alone. If the city keeps going at the pace it’s on, it will be the deadliest year since 2002. Gun violence has been put into the media spotlight, and the petition to get the President to come to the funeral was a part of people reacting to the gun violence and gun control laws. There is a reason Chicago is also called The Bl0ody City.
