House Rules Be Damned … Rep. Bobby Rush (D-IL) Wears Hoodie in Honor of Trayvon Martin … Then Removed for Violating House Rules



This is the respect that Democrats have for House rules … Rep. Bobby Rush (D-IL) escorted out of House for breaking rules. Rush stated in his comments, “Just because someone wears a hoodie does not make them a hoodlum.” No,  however, it gets you removed fron the House under clause five of House Rule 17 against wearing hats on the House floor.

Rep. Bobby Rush, D-Ill., lost his right to speak on the House floor after he violated rules by putting on a hoodie and sunglasses in honor of Trayvon Martin, the Florida teen shot last month.

“May God bless Trayvon Martin’s soul, his family and — [inaudible]” Rush said as he was removed from the House floor this morning for wearing a hoodie.

      What are the Democrats trying to make out of this shooting in Florida? This is behavior that is unbecoming for any adult much less one who is suposed to be representing the people.

      It doesn’t matter where your skin is black,brown, red,yellow,blue or purple, if you behave badly,then you deserve to be removed from any public place. What a way to be disrespectful of the peoples house.

      Texas Grandfather – I agree.

      The dems in Florida, not all, but many — especially the flaming liberals… have been
      going grape ape batty over the Stand Your Ground
      Law that Jeb helped pass in 2005.

      I’ve watched time and time again, with each case, them make a giant stink over it. Trayvon was the
      giant EBT Card they were waiting for, to try and
      get the law repealed.

      Guys who do what Trayvon did are exactly what the law was designed for. Even considering Zimmerman’s initial mistake — and I think
      he did make one — It works. It has not a whit to do with color, or hoodies, or anything else. It
      has everything to do with survival for you and
      your family.

      In New York — you call 911 while they listen to you get beaten to a pulp.

      In Florida — we can shoot you damn dead, and then go have a cuban sandwich.

      I’d prefer a world where the law wasn’t even needed. That would be my choice! Unfortunately,
      I seem to be stuck in reality.

      What now that the video has been released of Mr. Zimmerman prior to his immediate detention?

      To the human eye, it doesn’t look like to me that Zimmerman was in a fight for his life. I do believe he was racially profiling the youth from the onset.

      Whether or not Zimmerman felt his life was being threatened and had to pull a gun on this kid….who can really say?

      Also want to point out that Zimmerman isn’t even White himself!

      Did he racially profile Trayvon Martin from the start? Could this be a case of a Wanna Be Cop gone bad? Zimmerman was a habitual “911″ caller..for some pretty ridiculous things too.

      As I stated from the start, I don’t know what possessed Zimmerman to feel he had to pull his gun if there was only a physical confrontation with an unarmed Teenager. Sounds to me like Zimmerman could have used better judgement.

      What does the video aired last night showing George Zimmerman’s initial apprehension tell us?

      The surveillance camera video of George Zimmerman being taken into the police station in handcuffs the night of the shooting leads us to some common sense questions. Some people are saying “where’s the blood? Where’s the broken nose?”

      Unfortunately many of these same people have been also been saying Zimmerman was never handcuffed or taken in for questioning by the police in the first place. Not true.

      What the video tells me is that we still don’t know what happened that night. That we need to withhold judgment until we have more evidence. That people calling George Zimmerman “a murderer” or “an innocent man” are jumping to conclusions.

      I do believe that what got Mr. Zimmerman in trouble in the first place was a very real possibility that he was, in fact, racial profiling. Zimmerman himself is not even White!

      Why does Whitey get the blame for everything?

      Mr. Zimmerman may have indeed been profiling. However,IMO it was not without reason. This was a gated community that did not have LE or security protection on a full time basis. Instead they had formed a neighborhood watch to try to prevent thefts in the community.

      Wherever we find large groups of teenagers not in school or not working (your can’t get a job if you are poorly educated or have bad behavior) we have thefts and assaults.

      For a number of years I lived in an upscale community in Houston. There was an all black community about a mile away. The teenagers from the black community were constantly breaking into homes during the day when people were at work. We tried the neighborhood watch method without success. Finally we had to spend money to hire a full time deputy sheriff to patrol the area.

      Our community contained professional people who were white, black, brown and yellow. We all were at risk from the out of control teenagers.

      #9 ATG- I understand your points, but still, from being a Volunteer Community Watchperson, nowhere in that Charter does it require a Security Guard to carry a FireArm.

      Yes, Mr. Zimmerman has a Constitutional Right to bear those Arms, but from what little we do know, I am not sure I believe he made the right decision to shoot an unarmed Teenager. If Martin got Physical, which it appears he did- then I do agree Zimmerman had a right to defend himself. But using deadly force? An entirely different scenario all together. Perhaps in their struggle, Martin tried to reach for Zimmerman’s gun….I don’t know.

      Like so much of this case, the evidence is unclear. What IS clear is that the mainstream media are pushing the “racist white guy kills black kid for no reason whatsoever” narrative, and they are intentionally highlighting stories that help keep it alive, while ignoring stories that undermine it.

      I’d like to see something they used to call “reporting.” Does anyone still do that?
