Rep. Bobby Rush (D-IL) wallowed in the political muck and played the race card. Rush, who was very critical of a proposal by Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL) for mass arrests of 18,000 Gangster Disciples, told the Chicago Sun-Times that Kirk’s approach is “headline grabbing” and an “upper-middle-class, elitist white boy solution to a problem he knows nothing about.”
“One of Kirk’s top priorities is targeting gangs; he has been meeting with law enforcement officials to devise a plan to execute the mass arrests.”
Even if Bobby Rush is making a valid point about Kirk’s proposal being problematic, why invoke race? He will be on the receiving end of scathing rebuke by the right wing.
