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...
