Joe Walsh Calls LGBT Community 'Constitutional Terrorists' Amid Arizona Anti-Gay Bill Protests

Amid widespread backlash against the Arizona anti-gay bill that was ultimately vetoed by Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R), Chicago radio host and former Republican congressman Joe Walsh lashed out against the LGBT community, labeling them "constitutional terrorists" for speaking out on the measure.

Walsh, who served one term representing Illinois' 8th congressional district before being defeated by Tammy Duckworth in 2012, wrote the tweet Tuesday night.

That wasn't the last Walsh had to say about Arizona Senate Bill 1062, which would have allowed businesses to legally refuse service to anyone they chose on the grounds of "religious freedom." His tweets on the issue started up again Wednesday night, after Brewer's veto.

Of course, Walsh wasn't the only conservative displeased by Brewer's veto of the contentious legislation.
