Rangel is a racist of the first degree. BO went to a church with a demonstrably racist pastor, for years.

LOL- these guys forget their history, don’t they? (OK, they never learned it in the first place...)

Weren’t the staunchest foes of the Civil Rights Act of the mid 60’s Southern DEMOCRATS?

I can’t decide if these people are just incredibly stupid, trying on purpose to destroy this country, or a mixture of both.

thanks for the laugh!

Charles Rangel is an open tax cheat who writes the federal tax code and thinks nothing of raising taxes or imposing new fees on the “little people” who, unlike the “Chairman” follow the law and pay them.

We should not be offended by the charge of "racism."

The only tool the Dems have used since Obama's election (and before) is ad hominem attack.

One of the oldest and most tellings rules of debate is that when one side makes personal attacks against the other, it is because HE KNOWS HE HAS NO OTHER DEFENSE!!!

REMEMBER THIS POINT!!!

The Dem's would use rational argument and logic to defend Obama and the HCB...but there isn't any.

We can win this argument if we keep reminding ourselves and the voters of this.

The race card is the last resort of the criminal, the incompetent, the lazy, the scum who make a living playing it.

Put Charlie in there anywhere you like.In fact I believe he fits the bill entirely.

If Rangel says being against ObamaCare is racist, then he is admitting that ObamaCare is just for blacks and other minorities, which discriminates against whites.

Which means that in reality, ObamaCare and Rangel are the real racists!!!

I oppose the monstrosity called Obamcare. So I am a racist? To label someone as a racist, when he is not, is like calling someone...a tax cheat.

One thing you can always count on liberal blacks for is de-legitimizing black struggles by calling all opposition to their Marxist ideology nonsense “racist.”

Okay...Mr Rangel, you want to talk about racist!

How about a tax that only affects people that are light-skinned? Yeah, how about that?

What if you guy's placed a tax only on something dark-skinned people used? You would be marching in the flipping streets!!

Oh yeah...the tax you've imposed ONLY on light-skinned people is the tanning bed tax!!

You racist moron!!

Yep!

I'm a Southerner also and have many Black friends (my next door neighbors are a very nice black family and I even helped them find the house when it came on the market) and this really p!sses me off also.

OTOH, the opposition knows such accusation rankles and that is exactly what they are trying to do.

The best thing to do is just handle it with a cool and logical response (i.e. "are you sure you aren't projecting your own racism on us...we object to Obama and his plans purely on logical grounds...we don't like his policies!").

Yeah, and I liken Tax-Cheat Charlie to one of Robert Mugabe’s racist thugs. So we’re even.

They keep diluting the meaning of the word ‘racist’ to the point where it is a completely meaningless accusation.
