Politicians are dumb. Either that or they’re trying really hard to make us think they are lacking in, at the very least, the ability to think rationally. I guess that’s what you do when the only reason you have a job is because you’re a race hustler. Without racism, a lot of these people that push identity politics would be unemployed.

According to an article from The Washington Times, activist Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill.) went on “The Joe Madison Show” on SiriusXM on Wednesday and spouted a bunch of incendiary nonsense about President Donald Trump.

“Trump wants to instigate a race war,” Rush said. “He wants to have black folks fighting white folks.”

Sure he does. Rush is referencing reports that the Trump administration is going to send federal agents into Chicago to help curb the violence happening in the city.

Rush went even further and disparaged white people by saying that what Trump does intentionally “play to the fears” and “racial animus” of white people towards black people.

“So he can rise up and say, ‘I’m the real Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, and I’m the President. Reelect me,” Rush continued. “That’s what he’s trying to do. He’s trying to play to the fears, to the racial animus that exists among certain White people, and he will do everything and anything to do that because he wants to be reelected at all costs.”

What is this dude talking about? I like to give people the benefit of the doubt sometimes, but Rush kills any possibility of respecting his opinion when he spouts the kind of hate he’s doing in this instance. We’re supposed to take this guy seriously as a member of Congress?

How have people like Rush maintained their positions for decades?

Let me get this straight. Trump secretly wants to be the “real Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan and start a race war? I thought that’s what organizations like Antifa and the Marxists in Black Lives Matter do? Those kind of conspiracy theories are typically reserved for the likes of Al Sharpton and Chris Hayes.

Although, to be fair, Rush was a co-founder of the Illinois chapter of the black supremacist Black Panther group following his going AWOL from the Army in 1968.

Here’s a tweet Rush sent out Wednesday afternoon reinforcing his comments from earlier in the day:
