Standing against big government and for the people!
I'm sorry but this is going too far! The Representatives in Congress should not be using their platform there to protest a case that we don't even have all the facts yet and especially a case where they are using the race card to make a point.
I am so glad that they kicked Dem Rep. Rush off the House floor today. This is great news.
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 over 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 donned sunglasses.
The Illinois Democrat quoted the Bible while presiding officer Rep. Gregg Harper (R-Miss.) repeatedly interrupted him, then asked the sergeant at arms to enforce the House prohibition on hats in the chamber.
This is so ridiculous. A member of Congress protesting and supporting a person involved in this shooting case without this going to trial. But then doesn't Obama do the same thing? It's unbelievable to me that several members of the black caucus in Congress have called for the arrest of George Zimmerman. Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty by a fair trial and a group of your peers? Given the opportunity this group of legislators would probably lynch Zimmerman!
Shame, shame, shame on these legislators, Rep. Rush, Obama, Sharpton, and Jackson!
