John Walsh calls the USA a third world country among his usual errors in addressing the child abuse issue

Ah, John Walsh, how many times has your stupidity have been featured here over the years? Anyways, Walsh displays his lack of education by referring to the USA as a third world country. Well, with Trump in office, we may end up becoming a third world country, but here is the current definition of "third world":

1: The underdeveloped nations of the world, especially those with widespread poverty.
2: The group of developing nations, especially of Asia and Africa, that do not align themselves with the policies of either the U.S. or the former Soviet Union.
3: The minority groups within a nation or predominant culture.

Oh, and Walsh goes on to give props to controversial South Carolina pro-Confederate and segregationist Strom Thurmond, seeing as how they both are obvious supporters of segregation policies. Of course, late in life, Thurmond caled back on his racism, but Walsh hasn't scaled back on his anti-registrant hogwash.

Walsh calls child abuse a problem that is 'everywhere'
By Dede Biles dbiles@aikenstandard.com  Apr 25, 2017

Television personality, criminal investigator and victim rights advocate John Walsh delivered a sobering message Monday night at USC Aiken’s Convocation Center while speaking during a fundraiser for the Child Advocacy Center of Aiken County.

“There is a problem everywhere,” he said. “Everybody has a problem with the abuse of children. I don’t give a damn if you live in Beverly Hills or you live in the inner city in the ghetto. Your children can be victims at any time. We are the richest and most powerful country in the world, but we have more child abuse than any other third world country.”

In Aiken County, Walsh said, the Advocacy Center assisted 55 victims of child abuse last month.

“The people who prey on children are a lot smarter than most criminals,” Walsh said. “They know how we hate them, and they now how insidious what they do is. They are cunning, and they are good at it.”

.....

Walsh spoke fondly of the late U.S. Sen. Strom Thurmond, saying the Republican from South Carolina provided support for his initiatives.

"Love him or hate him, I thought he was a good old guy," Walsh said. "He was like that semi-senile grandfather we all have and we all love, but he also would come into some incredible moments of clarity."
