Rep. Rangel calls tea party 'white crackers' (Where's the outrage?)
American Thinker ^ | 08/03/2013 | Rick Moran

Posted on 08/03/2013 5:26:36 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

I love how the words just casually roll off his tongue, as if he had been saying them all his life.

Which he has. But there is no such thing as black racism, don't you know? Using a racial epithet to describe one's political opponents is accepted behavior. Or at least it must be because the only people saying anything about it are those on the right.

But even at 83, dressed in a blue bow tie and crisp gray suit, Rangel is relentless toward those who he feels are slowing the forces of progress.

House Republicans? Have done more damage to American competitiveness than al Qaeda ever could. "What is happening is sabotage. Terrorists couldn't do a better job than the Republicans are doing."

The Tea Party? Defeat them the same way segregation was beaten. "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. 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."

Rep. Rangel calls tea party 'white crackers'

I believe that Rangel has re-written the rules, and we can now refer to him and his as "black niggas", right?

We have the proper descriptive term for people like this clown. When used it places them exactly in the proper category!

If you think for one minute that every member of the Congressional Black Caucus is not exactly like Charlie Rangel in his bigotry, you should think again.

The Congressional Black Caucus the most powerful group of bigots in this country.

And they back Sheila Jackson Lee for Homeland Security Chief.

If that doesn’t scare you it should. I mean we all laugh about it, but it isn’t funny. These people are serious.

Question: how did he spell “cracker?”

“ER” means one thing.
“AH” means something else.

There may be other cracker flavors I’m not aware of.

Gee Charlie: You mean like little Antonio Santiago? You know that little 13 month old infant shot between the eyes by a 17 year old Trayvon look alike that could have been Obama’s son?

You need to look around Charlie (You freaking idiot) and see who is killing blacks , and whites.

It isn’t the Crackuh’s Charlie. Oh!! We have our share of nut cases, but you guys are overwhelmed with them Charlie, and they are killing your own people.

I must conclude that these people are truly upset that they have black skin. Truly, they are the racists as most of us could care less about skin color but about behavior and lifestyle. Our country is the only country that ever fought a war to end slavery. If they hate this country so much they should go back to Africa. Try Zimbawbwee where Mugawbe has destroyed a once great nation with his bigotry. Finally, has it ever occurred to the race pimps that the tribal people that caught, enslaved, and sold their tribal enemies to the slave traders were also Africans? No race has an exclusive on cruelty.

It is difficult not to get tired of all the racism and bigotry in Washington DC. Congressman Rangel is just another example of crystal pure racism.

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

Does he mean "White Crackers" like his good friend and esteemed colleague Senator Robert C. Byrd, who led a 14-hour filibuster again the 1964 Civil Rights Act and who, in 2001, became the first and only white man ever to use the N-word on national TV?

Here is notorious tax cheat Charles "Tax cuts are a code word for racism" Rangel posing with his good friend and colleague, white cracker Robert C. Byrd for a 2007 Vanity Fair magazine cover.

Yeah, I guess we can all thank Rachel Jeantel for clarifying that for us.

I presume that it would be proper to refer to black people using George Wallace's pronunciation as "niggra", based on the same rule?

One would think that with all of the back taxes that Rangel owed that he would be all for the TEA (Taxed Enough Already) party.

The word “cracker” doesn’t offend me at all, as its just a childish retaliation for the n-word and has no meaning other than color. I, for one, am not ashamed of being white, nor do I have any guilt about the self-imposed plight of blacks. I have nothing to do with as I don’t discriminate, and I never owned any slaves.

The “old black males”, I.e. Rangel, Sharpton, Jackson, etc, seem to not be able to shake their glory days of marching arm in arm through Selma singing “we shall overcome”. Why they want to continue fighting a civil rights battle(s) that they’ve already won is ridiculous. Everything in America and every concession and advantage has been tilted their way. Yet these same hanger-on’ers get whipped out of shape if a southerner displays any pride in the southern tradition.

They claim diversity, yet can’t tear away from the one-size-fits-all plantation of the democrat party, and show very little initiative of surviving without government handouts.

The only things I think of when I hear “cracker”, is soup, and the old Atlanta baseball team from the 50’s.

I’d imagine when you get as old as Rangel that it must be depressing and frustrating to watch your people fall so far behind EVERY OTHER GROUP that lands here. As one of their “leaders” it doesn’t reflect well on him.

Think of how far many blacks have fallen during Rangel’s lifetime...

Why would any normal person care what Charlie Rangel says. I do worry about him helping formulate policy and laws, not what dribbles out of his pie hole.

If “Cracker” is ONE of the acceptable derogatory terms for “white person”, what is an acceptable derogatory term for “black person”?

You nailed it. The racialists hate their own so-called race (which is really nothing more than a group of physical characteristics and maybe some cultural characteristics resulting from free association with people who have similar physical characterstics).

So they want to stir up more hatred and animosity from people of other so-called races. They promote white-guilt/self-hatred and black-self-loathing.

When whites respond with stunts like white student organizations and white-only scholarships, it just plays into their hands. We cannot counter racism with racism.

We must keep switching the subject back to character and ideology. Conservatives do not care about a person’s so-called race. Liberals care about little else. The democrat party is just a coalition of many diverse, unrelated, disaffected groups. If their leaders cannot keep them stirred up and angry at outsiders (aka conservatives) then their anger will become directed at their own ineffective leaders.

And that is exactly what we all need.

The author's assumption that the Left cares about hypocrisy, truth, fairness, propriety or reputation is entirely incorrect.

They care only about power, revenge, and hatred.

I was in a tourist section of Boston yesterday and as I walked along the waterfront there was a small group of males, likely all black (I took a quick glance), doing some sort of performance for nearly all-white onlookers. At one point, I heard a performer say something similar to “Come on white people, dance and show us blacks you have rhythm...” The white fools laughed. Imagine some whites going to a black area and saying something comparable (not dance-oriented) about blacks? I doubt the reaction would be the same. We have a notion of dolts.
