Dopey Dem Booted Off House Floor for Wearing Hoodie

Posted by on Mar 28, 2012 at 11:32 am

This really is getting stupid.

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. 

“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.

“The chair must remind members that clause 5 of rule 17 prohibits the wearing of hats in the chamber when the House is in session,” Harper said after Rush left. “The chair finds that the donning of a hood is not consistent with this rule. Members need to remove their hoods or leave the floor.”

Enforcing rules must be racist.

Meanwhile, Rush was unavailable for comment on the multiple murders in his district last night.

    This stunt vies with “…the Island of Guam tipping over…”as the best examples of Dem mensa power in Congress this past session.Moreover,if this idiot listened to the COMPLETE conversation between Mr.Zimmerman and the police dispatcher-the term Black was used by the dispatcher.Mr. Zimmerman was not racial profiling .

    Ah, Illinois does it again. We got more asshats in Washington than any other state. Even California eats our dust.

    We got Obama. We got Dick Durbin. We got Jan Shakowsky. We got Bobby Rush. We got Rahm Immanuel. We got Ray LaHood.

    We’re number one. We’re number one.
