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.

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;)
Since he was taking a stand for Trayvon, and probably doesn't have any more facts than the rest of us, something tells me he wasn't quoting this verse:
Proverbs 18 (ESV)
2A fool takes no pleasure in understanding,
but only in expressing his opinion.
Several members of the Congressional Black Caucus have taken to the House floor for the last week to call for the arrest of George Zimmerman, a 28-year-old Neighborhood Watch patrolman who allegedly shot Martin last month in Florida. While these calls have escalated, Florida police have said some witnesses saw Martin beat Zimmerman before the shooting, and Zimmermans lawyers have said he acted in self-defense.What's more important? Eye-witness testimony or "calls" from the Congressional Black Caucus.
This is a reference to 'While Walking Black in a Gated Community'.
If it was a Gated Community, then Trayon Martin belong there, or was he out for no good.
Note that Zimmerman is white/hispanic.
Finally, I believe Trayon Martin was on a 12 day suspension from school. One of his relatives said it was for possessing drugs.
Seems like the black racist members of Congress are trying to foment race riots.
Spike Lee tweeting the wrong addresses of people is not helping anything...
Maybe Spike should get off drugs before tweeting so he can see straight...
‘Looks like a would-be klansman.
Thugs are taking over.
Thank you for not caring. :)
Now go pay your taxes, your government is broke.
A$$HOLE! For all the white kids murdered, where was the outrage????????
Laugh of the lunchhour!!
