Skip to comments.Rep. Bobby Rush Kicked Off House Floor for Wearing 'Hoodie'
Posted on 03/28/2012 8:10:33 AM PDT by kristinn
Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill.) on Wednesday morning was asked to leave the House floor after removing his suit jacket to reveal a "hoodie," then putting the hood of his sweatshirt on his head to protest the Trayvon Martin killing in Florida. A photo of Rush can be seen here.
"Racial profiling has to stop," Rush said. "Just because someone wears a hoodie does not make them a hoodlum." Rush also put on sunglasses.
Rush quoted the Bible while presiding officer Gregg Harper (R-Miss.) repeatedly interrupted him, then asked the Sergeant at Arms to enforce the House prohibition on hats in the chamber.

Didn’t Bobby Rush belong to the Black Panther Party when he was first elected?
“...then asked the Sergeant at Arms to enforce the House prohibition on hats in the chamber.”
Proving once again that idiots who wear hoodies are usually involved with an enforcement authority.
Amen to that!!!!!
That’s not a hat. That’s his a$$ covering his head.
Boy, who saw this coming.
BTW Bobby Rush was defense minister for the original Black Panther Party in Illinois back in the late 1960’s...no doubt an avowed Marxist...and his district has the largets majority of minority people of any district being 65% minority...he’s pandering to his “base”
I agree, Rush is already a hoodlum the hoodie was nothing but advertising.
*** “Racial profiling has to stop,” Rush said. ***
I’d say the opposite is true. If 90% of crime is attributable to a certain race, then that race bears closer scrutiny. It’s called using your brain, something Mr. Rush seems to have difficulty doing.
He looks like the Unibomber!
I wonder if someone would be well received if they showed up wearing a sheet to prove that not everyone wearing a sheet is a klan memeber? I think not!
“Just because someone wears a hoodie does not make them a hoodlum.” Just because he is on the floor of the House doesn’t mean he ISN’T a hoodlum.
Guess that is what Congress will be like after the revolution, idiots wearing gangsta garb.
I’m convinced the left wants to destroy our youth. Shouldn’t he have carried a bong and talked in gangsta rap, too?
Let’s really mess the kids up. Carry your weed and wear your hoodies and miss school get suspended and serve in Congress! Cause you ain’t gettin no other decent job.
...all part of the game of trying to destabilize America with racial strife.....OBAMA IS BEHIND IT ALL...Holder’s actions in ignoring obvious panther crimes...how long before the media responds objectively?
No, jackass, CRIME needs to stop
Then no one worries about hoodlums wearing hoodies.
The action points out the unarguable fact that there is a reason for racial profiling. Keeping a close eye on black men in hoodies prevents crime and societal disruption
I thought Black Democrats pols were opposed to public Bible readings?
“It made my heart ache, you know, to see all these beautiful black men in the joint. The warriors should be out there helping the masses. I felt that way, I was real naive. Six weeks I was up there and I talked to the brothers. I talked to ‘em, and ... THANK GOD WE GOT PENITENTIARIES! I asked one, ‘Why did you kill everybody in the house?’ He says, ‘They was home.’
I met one dude, kidnap-murdered four times. And I thought, three times, that was your last, right? I says, ‘What happened?’ ‘I can’t get this s—t right! But Im getting paroled in two years.’”
I hope the eventual GOP nominee really wants to win and has no qualms about racializing the election....it would be a landslide if our nominee had the BALLS to win this thing.
These leftist scum (aka bobby rush) have infiltrated all levels of our country...from college, to government, to...
When you assume the uniform of a thug, expect to be treated like one.
So what happens when the fashion is to wear Ski Masks and or Nylon Stockings on your head?
Funny though that if you want to get a permit to carry a concealed weapon your automatically a "Hoodlum" as far as the democRats are concerned.
Satan quoted scripture (out of context) just like the ‘rats do.
Thugs have no shame or civility.
If you know your French revolution, I believe it was the revolutionary Blanqui who was freed from the Bastille and appeared in Parliament, ranting from the podium and white as a ghost from his years in a dungeon.
This is mildly reminiscent.

Bobby Rush Kept Handgun and Communist Literature in Apartment
Best answer yet. How about if they were carrying a noose to prove that not all nooses are used in hanging?
I don’t know why they kicked him out. His dress is completely representative of the United States Congress. In fact, that should be the dress code. Jordan tennis shoes, gold teeth, pants down around your ass, plenty of bling, pistol in your pants; and everyone change their name to gangsta types. Instead of floor votes, they can give gang signs. The Dems could wear blue hoodies and the GOP could wear pink. Boom box blasting from the limo’s outside. Trash all over the floor of the House. Nothing but a bunch of thugs and punks anyway. Might as well go all in.
What are the odds that ANY nominee would have the balls to actually call the left on their race-baiting with regard to the election?
Would it be zero? Or less, maybe?
Tell Rep Rush if the black crime rate was the same as the Japanese crime rate, there would be no crime racial profiling. Muslim clothes get them profiled for the same reason.
Ugh! WTF is THAT? Reminds me of that line from the 1982 movie “The Thing”......”Is that a man in there?”
This hoodie business is making me laugh, I spent last winter riding my bicycle in the cold weather wearing a hoodie, with a balaclava underneath, and sunglasses. No wonder I got a lot of weird looks. I had no idea hoodie meant gangbanger, I just wanted to keep warm on the bike.
Yeah, and his”base” is killing off each other at an alarming rate...but NOOOOO mention of that by Rush...
they all need to listen to Mayor Nutter of Philly (an Obambot no less) and cut this crap OUT!
Chicago on Wednesday reached 100 homicides for the yearthe fastest the city has hit this mark in at least seven years, RedEye and police data show.
Seventeen homicides have been recorded in the last weekincluding four each on Saturday and Sunday, a RedEye analysis of preliminary police information found.
A 6-year-old girl was fatally shot Saturday afternoon -- one of five individuals wounded within one hour in separate shootings across the city and one of at least seven killed by gun violence over the weekend as of Sunday morning -- in Chicago.
Aliyah Shell was playing on her front porch with her parents around 3:40 p.m. in the 3100 block of South Springfield Avenue in the city's Little Village neighborhood when a pickup truck pulled up to the house and a man inside the vehicle began shooting at the house, NBC Chicago reports. So where is Chicago Congressman Bobby Rush ....?
Oh. Never mind. Just black on black crime. Not important to race hustlers..... sarc
My youngest (21) son would not know what Christmas was if he did not receive at least 3 hoodies. It is the same each Christmas. He wants 2 GA & 1 Duke. I can't get him to take a South Carolina Hoodie. (It's a Spurrier thing).
Every young man I know wears hoodies. We all wear hoodies!
But if they knock someone down, then sit on them and pound on their face, that does make them a hoodlum.
Stop, thief! I’m missing five trillion dollars!
It is early but this HAS to be post of the day!!
No. It just might make them a member of the Black KKK !
Not jes one ob dem raggedy scritchy-ass cotton (racist fiber) hoodies like I gots neiber...nooooo Bobby gots him de fancy-man Patagobnia polyurbantheme hundret-fitty-dollah yos!
Yes, and I bet he still belongs to the black panthers but not openly.
I’ve known cantalopes with a higher IQ than Rush. This guy is a disgrace.
“Rush’s own apartment was raided in December 1969 where police discovered an unregistered pistol, rifle, shotgun and pistol ammunition, training manuals on explosives and booby traps, a small amount of marijuana and an assortment of communist literature.”
How much time in JAIL did he serve for these assorted FELONIES? (Well except for possession of communist literature, which should be just 364 days in prison;)
