Members need to remove their hoods or leave the floor

So, it's not often that something exciting happens on C-SPAN, but here you go. Representative Bobby Rush (D-IL) was speaking out against racial profiling, when he pulled off his jacket to reveal a stealth hoodie. He proceeded to put the hood up, prompting acting speaker Gregg Harper (R-MS) to start gavel banging and un-recognizing. Eventually, he calls the sergeant-at-arms to remove Rush.

Awesomely, the clip concludes with Harper saying, "Members need to remove their hoods or leave the floor." I don't know about you, but that sounds like a pro-circumcision bias bordering on religious discrimination to me.
