NY Daily News ^ | 12/5/10 | Tina Moore

U.S. Rep. Charles Rangel was greeted with a standing ovation Saturday at a town hall meeting in Harlem two days after he was censured by by the House.

"I am very pleased this is behind me," Rangel, who looked dapper in a dark suit and tie, told cheering supporters after a two-year ethics probe.

Insisting that his colleagues were bowing to political pressure, Rangel remained defiant and confident, saying he was "not guilty of corruption or self-enrichment."

Must be nice to not to pay taxes for 12 years and only get a verbal admonishment. I wonder if the government would allow an ordinary citizen to get away with that?

If any of Charlie’s black constituents in Harlem had not paid taxes for 12 years, they would not have gotten off with a verbal admonishment, either.

That is the tragedy of the democrat plantation.

What was a Korean War Vet like Charlie "Bring Back the Draft" Rangel doing speaking at a PRO-NORTH KOREA Workers World Party event?? Hannity and O'Reilly never quite got around to asking him.

Note: the page (on the Workers World Party website) with this photo has recently been removed.

But here's other evidence of his speaking at the event:

"Among the many speakers were elected representatives—U.S. Rep. Charles Rangel and New York City Council members Charles Barron and Margarita Lopez—who have bucked their party to come out against the war. Barron has also introduced a Troops Out Now resolution in the City Council."--Workers World Party

I don't know.

I feel kind of sorry for Congressman Rangel.

War hero, Purple Heart, Bronze Star, rose above his station, Way and Means Chairman instead of some fake diversity consulting job.

Skimmed a little off the top? Yup. Cheated on his taxes? Yup. Didn't have the right papers for his fancy car? Yup.

Ran a multimillion dollar winery with nonunion labor? Nope. Leaving Congress a billionaire on his government salary? Nope. Diverted billions to his multimillionaire spouse with insider knowledge about government contracts? Nope. Wrote laws to create windfalls for businesses run by relatives, forcing the military to accept second-best technology as a result? Nope.

He was shamed because he was capable of shame, by people who mock the concept.

Did he deserve it? Yes he did.

He deserved censure. His condemners deserve the all-night firing squad at RFK stadium.

Clarification for others: it's of the OJ verdict being announced when blacks were seen cheering (despite the overwhelming amount of evidence pointing to his guilt).

The reason the black race is so caught up in the “slave” mentality is because of the shame of the men to not FIGHT against the captors of their families. Resistance was meager and often futile. Now they decide to fight back but against themselves. Right back to the tribe mentality that started the black race plight.

To his credit, there’s one black guy (at about one o’clock high) who isn’t cheering. This picture is rather proof that the case wasn’t about facts and evidence but about color, for a significant part of population, and this whether you believe OJ did it or not.

Yeah, I guess I do remember the pictures of JC Watt, Condie Rice, (newly elected) Tim Scott and Clarence Thomas whooping it up with joy when OJ got away with murder.

If you don’t mean ALL of “them”, then make yourself clear. I live in a part of the country where conservatives are “profiled” as racist. You give ammunition to people who bash conservatives on the head with this crap and successfully muddle the argument to stupid side crap!

Liberals make a huge deal over race. I’m a “content of character” type.

"Rangel is an avowed admirer of the former Cuban President Fidel Castro. In April 1993, the congressman introduced legislation to repeal the Cuban Democracy Act of 1992, which ended U.S. assistance to the Castro government, and to lift the American embargo against Cuba. When Castro toured Harlem in October of 1995, Rangel greeted him with a bear hug at an event in a local church, where the congressman joined in a prolonged standing ovation for the visiting dictator."

The most hypocritical of his actions was to take four rent controlled apartments for his own personal use and defeat the purpose of helping his low income constituents.

On many levels - first the stupidity of rent control which created huge wasteland ghettos like the South Bronx. Second - it was a delusion of the Democratic party in line with their helping the poor at the expense of this rich, it failed at both, especially when the rich benefited from it. Third - the greed of Rangel compels him to then use this stupid and awful device his party created to enrich himself. Frankly - it is a perfect example of why America has voted these bums out. It’s Franklin Raines and Freddie and Fannie and the 3 trillion grab bag all over again. These freaks come up with these proposals that really damage the country and then use them to enrich themselves. They are economically naive, but not naive enough because they know how to steal from the stupid programs they created.
