In 1968, Bobby Rush went AWOL from the Army and founded the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party. The Chicago BPP was full of gangsters. Rush would serve time in prison for an illegal weapons conviction.
When President Barack Obama was elected president, Rush wasted no time calling for a black man to be put in his Senate seat.
He’s a racist through and through.
Which is why this didn’t surprise me a bit:
Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill.) is highly critical of a proposal by Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) for mass arrests of 18,000 Gangster Disciples, telling the Sun-Times on Wednesday that Kirk’s approach is “headline grabbing” and an “upper-middle-class, elitist white boy solution to a problem he knows nothing about.”
Rush would know a thing or two about gangs, what with his history of founding them in Chicago.
Just so you know, here’s exactly what the elitist white boy said:
“I think it’s completely within the capability of the United States government to crush a major urban gang,” Kirk said. “Just think of what the greatest generation did here in Chicago, pretty much crushing the Capone organization.”
Using the federal government to destroy a murderous drug dealing organization? What kind of elitist white boy nonsense is that?
The only surprising part of Rush’s comment is that he didn’t call both Durbin and Kirk a couple of crackers.
Because Bobby Rush is a racist.
