Charlie Rangel: Tea Party Is ‘Same Group’ Of ‘White Crackers’ Who Fought Civil Rights

In an interview with the Daily Beast published Friday, Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) suggested Tea Partiers are the “same group” who fought for segregation 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. They didn’t care about how they looked,” Rangel said.

Because of this, Rangel said the Tea Party could be defeated using the same tactics employed against Jim Crow.

“It was just fierce indifference to human life that caused America to say enough is enough. ‘I don’t want to see it and I am not a part of it.’ What the hell! If you have to bomb little kids and send dogs out against human beings, give me a break,” said Rangel.

Give you a break?  Charlie here is your break:  You get to use a racist epithet with no accountability.  If a white member of Congress talked like you they would be out of a job.  You get to lie about the Tea Party.  If a white member of congress make the same generalization about any liberal group the media would form a posse.  You get to continue the false narrative that it is the white man who is destroying the black community.

  1. I am opposed to racism of any form and Rangel’s brand of racism is just as bad as that of the Aryan Nation or the Church of the Creator – white supremacist groups. He obviously doesn’t know that it was the Republicans who brought about the end of slavery, the first blacks in Congress were Republicans and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican. Meanwhile, Democrats started the Ku Klux Klan and opposed equal rights. They still seem to think that backs are sub-human and need “affirmative action” in order to succeed. I believe in equality, and King’s dream of a “color-blind society.”
