Via The Blaze:
On Sunday, Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) spoke at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth undergraduate commencement ceremony, where he unleashed a bizarre comment surrounding Trayvon Martin and a black recipient who was at the event to receive an honorary degree. Frank, who was given the Chancellor’s Distinguished Service Medal at the event, created such a surprise with his quip that the audience gasped (and some cheered) as a result.
So, what was it that the leftist lawmaker said that created such a stir? Frank, who seemed to be looking for laughs from those in attendance, commented about academic and social justice crusader Hubie Jones’ honorary degree. The politician, who was clearly attempting to invoke the racial elements surrounding the Martin incident, said that Jones now has an academic hoodie that he can wear without anyone shooting at him.
