Charlie Rangel on GOP, Tea Party and White Crackers

By United Press International

Rangel EthicsU.S. Rep. Charlie Rangel, D-N.Y., on Tuesday called Tea Party members "mean, racist people" because they belong to red states, which were once part of the Confederacy.

In an interview on NY1, the democrat blamed Republicans for blocking federal programs meant to restore the failing infrastructure in his community, the Daily Caller reported.

"This is the president's program," Rangel said of the proposed programs. "It's hard for me to explain how you work with a president that thought he could really deal with the Republican leadership. He really thought -- and maybe it's the water they drink at Harvard -- that he could deal with the Tea Party!"

"They are mean, racist people," he added. "Now why do I say that? Because in those red states, they're the same slave-holding states! They had the Confederate flag. They became Dixiecrats, they had the Confederate flag. They're now Tea Party, they still got the Confederate flag!"

This isn't the first time Rangel has made inflammatory comments about race.

Last summer he called compared Tea Party members to segregationists during the civil rights movement.

"It is the same group we faced in the South with those white crackers and the dogs and the police," he said. "They didn't care about how they looked. It was just fierce indifference to human life that caused America to say enough is enough."

    Well here’s something for you from one of your white crackers you racist leach.
    People like are the true murderers. Racism and social welfare have become a business, and that business makes people like yourself and Al Sharpton for example, wealthy while kids die and you people in that business just keep it going. When as a society do we stop all the BS and face some facts? We can build jails, we can can watch kids die, or we can change things and that starts at the families, with responsibility, ending the social and racial myths that are being promulgated by the people who make a living from it all – people like you!
    You are keeping “your people” down. Just very way you racists put it, it sounds like you think you own them.

      PLEASE GO AWAY, CHARLIE! You have been irrelevant, ever since you twice (2x) supported TWANA BRAWLEY, who has always lied and blamed her attack on ‘white cops’ (who lost their jobs)and it turned out she just didn’t want her mother to know that she was just a *****! Then you defended her when she tried to sue NYC, while living under another name and state and scaming the GOV. again!

      I have never called anyone the “N” word, and don’t want to be called a racist or a “cracker”, since neither me nor any of my last 7+ generational relatives ever owned slaves…Talk to the tribes in Africa, who sold other Africans to the Spainish slave traders, who then sold them to others and not only to those in America….Get over it already! I’m HALF American Indian (Iroquois), but I never claimed any entiitlement from my government, that I haven’t paid into, such as SSI, since I was 14(working papers)and now I’m 70 and my SS was cut because my goverment moved it from a trust fund and spent it on other projects.. GO AWAY CHARLIE AND SHUT UP ALREADY! GO back to Costa Rica, stay there and put your offshore $$ in Rubles with Russia! They’ll welcome you not paying your owed income taxes to the USA !

      Term Limits for ALL for Senators and Reps. must entered into the Consitution. This should not ONLY be for whomever holds the Presidency! (Especially for Pelosi and Harry Reid). Their “jobs” were not intended to be a career for 40+yrs. They supposedly should have another paying job!

      Well, Charlie, you seem a bit mean-spirited and racist yourself—and, historically, you seem to be a bit behind the times.

      People like you and Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson seem to think you can spout off whatever pops into your heads—particularly your race-oppression agenda which you like to parade around as though all white people are “Crackas” and all still slave owners and all of them are out to keep the brotha down.

      You friends with Jeremiah Wright, too? Well, Wright is Wrong—and so are you and your fellow collaborators. If you truly want to help “your people”—or even go a step further and want to help the Nation as a whole—then develop an intellect—do more and talk less.

      Charlie, what you represent, what you, Al, and Jesse represent are the worst this society has, and you do it well. Yes, it’s time for you to go away. Time to retire and spend some of that cash you drained out of society. Aiding the economy that way is the only way you could ever help.

    Rangel is showing his own racism by clumping a bunch of states together and assuming all people in these states have the same mindset. It would be the same as saying “all black people are (fill in the blank)”.
    It’s funny how idiots like him can use derrogatory terms like “cracker” (alluding to the crack sound of the masters whips) and he would be the first one to start whining if a white person used the “N” word.
    This is getting ridiculous and Charlie Rangel is nothing but a proven thief and a clown.

      so very true,
      Rangel is just a moron, in idiots clothing….
      And once again, the use of the chiding race defense. They have used this argument/excuse, so many times, that it is like the little boy who cried Wolf.
      It seems as if the Liberals have nothing else to defend themselves on, but by playing the race card. With all the detrimental, negative, failed incidents suffered by the Liberals last year, this is the way they defend themselves?. REALLY?.
      I say let them keep digging their hole deeper, as every time they try to justify their actions, lately, they only bite themselves in the rectal area.

      The door has been swung wide open, for us to take the Senate, and retain the house in this years mid-term elections. We must take advantage, and seize the moment while we have the gift of their bad choices on our side.

      I AM PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN, AND STAND ARMED,
      AND APPOSED TO ANY AND ALL, WHO AREN’T.
      GOD BLESS THE USA, LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT.

      WE THE PEOPLE DO HAVE A VOICE, AND A CHOICE,
      WE, HOWEVER, MUST MAKE BOTH COUNT, OTHERWISE,
      RESISTANCE IS FUTILE. NOBAMA WINS, GAME OVER!.

    I’m offended by those racist remarks. It signifies that the blacks consider all races as crackers. Since I’m Hispanic then I speculate that the black community considers me a brown cracker. The blacks also referred George Zimmerman as a white Hispanic. I’m not sure what they meant but it was racist nevertheless.

    As long as we have Whites, Asians and Hispanics who accept that Blacks are owed something special, this nonsense will continue. When they were first on the “you owe us reparations kick”, someone should have had the courage to say here’s $20,000.00 for your citizenship, your right to live in America and here is a plane ticket. Now take it and shut up or seek your fortune elsewhere.

    I suspect without justice Chief Justice Taney’s support of the fugitive slave act, the best would have continued to escape and those planation owners would have had to pay slaves and hire them as free individuals. Remember steam tractors were used from 1855 on and human slaves would soon have become uneconomic.

The reason they all hate the tea party is because we stand for our Constitution, fair tax, fiscal responsibility and smaller, transparent government!

    TOP TEN FACTS FOR CHARLEY
    1. There has never been ANY evidence that the TP are racists
    2. There has been ample evidence Charley is a racist
    3. There has never been a link to the TP and “Confederate States”
    4. There is significant and growing evidence Charley at 80+ is well past his value or efficiency as a House Representative
    5. There is no link to Conservatives regarding racism
    6. There is profound evidence that Conservatives worked hard to end slavery and ensure Civil Rights
    7. There is abundant evidence that Liberal Democrats worked against both
    8. There are volumes of data that prove liberal policies proliferate poverty and enslave
    9. There are volumes of data that prove conservative policies end it and do not enslave
    10. There is ample evidence to prove Charley’s abuse of Botox is destroying what remains of his mind.

    If it wasn’t for him being a Black Racist Democrat he would have been thrown out of Congress due to his fraudulent financial dealings long ago.
