Democrat Rep. Rangel: OK to Call Tea Party ‘White Crackers’

Color me unimpressed. Why should we believe another lie coming from the pie-hole of an aging, corrupt, racist thug who embraces Marxism, steals from the taxpayers and threatens conservatives on a regular basis? Does anyone out there really believe the term ‘white cracker’ is a term of endearment? Is that something similar to comparing lynching to a hug? Just asking, as Rangel is a professional victim who is nothing more than a political leach who uses race as a weapon of expediency.

From NewsMax:

Rep. Charles Rangel says tea party supporters should not be offended by his reference to them as “white crackers,” asserting the reference to be “a term of endearment.”

During an interview Monday with The Huffington Post, the 22-term New York Democrat was asked about his use of the term last year, when he referred to tea partyers as “the same people we faced in the South, with the white crackers, the dogs and the police.”

Rangel replied that he thought “cracker” was “a term of endearment,” adding that “with all of the feelings I have against these people who have been against justice, fair play, equality, and the freedoms as we know it, if I offended them by calling them a white cracker, for that I apologize.”

But later in the interview, Rangel dismissed criticism of his comments as “ridiculous,” and appeared to liken tea partyers to segregationists and terrorists.

“A guy … in Congress calls mean-spirited people that bomb and kill people, set dogs on them, lynch people, and still refuse to believe that we’re suffering the pain from this — they can say that guy makes a lot of sense but he had no business calling us a white cracker,” he said.

Monday’s comments were Rangel’s latest likening Republicans or conservatives to segregationists or slaveholders.

“We have to win. We have to be able to send a national message with Andrew Cuomo,” Rangel said at a New York election rally late last month. Republicans “don’t disagree, they hate,” he said, according to Business Insider.

“Some of them believe that slavery isn’t over” and “think they won the civil war,” he added.

Either Rangel is demented or is a world class manipulating liar – maybe both. If you haven’t noticed, the only people who are screaming racism these days are the ones trying to use it for a political agenda. The Civil War ended a long time ago; no one is bombing Americans; and the racial unrest currently occurring in America is manufactured on false premises to gin up the masses into a chaotic, violent frenzy so they can be controlled. You can disagree and it doesn’t mean you hate – unless of course, you are a wretched, hateful Progressive such as Charlie Rangel who has the morals of an alley cat.
