The entire Democratic House minority has adopted a “wear your hoodie to work” day in solidarity with Congressman Bobbi Rush, who was dragged off the House floor by “da man” after delivering a stirring and extremely lucid speech on the late Trayvon Martin. Rush caused a scandal by breaking House rules on decorum when he sermonized from The Bible while wearing a gray hoodie.
The tragic shooting of Trayvon Martin led to an outcry for justice by those who believe Martin’s shooter Zimmerman was wrongfully released in accordance with Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law. According to 9-11 tapes, the neighborhood watchman Zimmerman, who is a Democrat with hispanic heritage, suspected Martin and followed him in part because he was wearing a hoodie and presumably because he was black.
The Democrats issued the press release for the “hoodie day,” which was attained by an anonymous source:
My Democrat brothas and sistas!
Tired of being pushed around by white Republikkkan crackers who think they run this joint? Are we a bunch of House *redacted* to put up with the forcible removal of our brotha Bobbi Rush by the Klan members who run the GOP?
It is time to rise up and speak Truth to Power!
We demand that the Republikkkans back off their thuggish tactics or we will mobilize our allies in the New Black Panther Party, Media Matters and the Southern Poverty Law Center to mount a ferocious campaign condemning them for their actions!
That is, unless the GOP is willing to amend the $3.4 trillion budget just submitted by us compassionate Democrats to the racist, bigoted, hoodiephobic Republikantz by adding a $200 billion remembrance fund, which will be distributed to our non-partisan allies in the media to keep hate crime victims’ memories alive!
Giving the Democrat rebuttal to those “Republican crackerz” who would dare cut off a black man in mid-diatribe will be Maxine Watters, Sheila-Jefferson Lee, and Hammerin’ Hank Jackson.
We cordially invite you to wear your official Obama 2012 gray hoodie in solidarity with Congressman Rush (and Trayvon Martin, of course). All proceeds go toward the re-election of Dear Leader.
With your help, we can defeat racism by taking the fight to the evil white oppressors in the Republikkan party!
Sincerely, Nanci Pelosi
The Republicans plan on holding a moment of silence in the tragic victim’s honor.
