Nancy Pelosi applauds Bobby Rush’s ‘courage’ for wearing a hoodie on House floor
Yahoo! News ^ | March 29, 2012 | Chris Moody

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi applauded Rep. Bobby Rush, D-Ill., who was admonished Wednesday for wearing a "hoodie" sweatshirt during a speech in memory of Trayvon Martin, a teenager who was killed in February.

"I think that Bobby Rush deserves a great deal of credit for the courage he had to go to the floor in a hoodie, knowing that he would be told he was out of order," Pelosi told reporters Thursday. "He quickly left the floor, he wasn't contentious about it. But he made his point. He called attention to a situation in this country that needs to be addressed in a way a man in a suit and tie might not be able to do."

Did the revenant witch’s head bobble as her blank eyes wandered around the room? The pustule on the Potamac is the social and personality sump tank for a population of three hundred million people.

Gimme a break.
Bobby Rush is a former member of the Black Panthers.
It is perfectly correct to boot him out.

Nancy Pelosi has proven once again that she is a nitwit.

But then we all knew that to be a fact.

situation in this country that needs to be addressed

Is she talking about the situation of having more Communists per capita in the Congress of the United States than were in the jungles of Viet Nam? We dropped napalm on little commie bastards in black pajamas who weren't as invested in Marxist Socialism as today's Demonrat Party.

Maybe someone should show some courage and speak with a British accent to relieve all the racial tension around the deaths of the two British tourists at the hands of another black teen.

Perhaps a container of crickets would serve as a great audio-visual aid.

Then someone else could wear a WWII uniform to show courage for the Veteran who's wife was beaten to death and he was hospitalized because of the attack by another black teen.

More crickets!

and then someone could wear a badge to show courage for yet another policeman shot to death by another black teen. IIRC, this makes about 12 LEO's slain by black youths just in the past 5 years.

More crickets!

And all of this is just in central Florida in the past month.

I wish she’d wear one on the House floor except I’d like to see her wear one backwards, so that the hoodie part would cover her face.

At this point in her life it is apparently WAY too late for her to learn that it is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt.

How much more of their crap in congress are we going to take? It’s been proven that you can’t VOTE the POS’s out, so it may be time for a Plan B.

I think Nancy Pelosi needs to get some courage herself and show up on the House floor in full burqa, in solidarity with her Muslim sisters.

He probably hasn’t read the rules, either because he feels entitled to be ignorant, or he is just to damned stupid to understand the content.

After watching the tape of this moron on the House floor last night I was ashamed of our nation. to think that this jerk, who could not even put a sentence together, is actually a member of the House.

More spew from that effin’ whack job.

When Ross Perot was talking about the ‘crazy aunt in the attic’, he had no idea it would be manifested by the cunning runt from ‘Frisco years later.

Remember that nitwit Jim Wright who used to carry on a virtual state department function from the speaker’s rostrum in the house back in the 80’s? That was the beginning of the end of any vestage of a pro america dummocrat party in the Congress.

Now then, this jerk Rush shows up with a hoodie. Is there not a Sergeant at Arms for the House? Bonehead should have had him removed.

All about sucking up to loony minorities many of whom are racist and have zero aptitude for logical thinking. They thrive on emotion and misinformation. They refuse to exert themselves to be better informed because it’s more fun to go batshit over alleged racial slights
