Skip to comments.Rep. Rangel calls tea party 'white crackers' (Where's the outrage?)
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."

Rangel should be in jail with his buddies Sharpton, Jackson and all the other race pimps.
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!
I wonder why Charlie doesn’t pronounce his name Rahn-hell like all the other Cubans do?
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.
Wink wink nod nod
Are there “black crackers” then? It seems redundant as a racial slur.
I’m totally deaf at this point to every charge of racist, cracker, redneck whatever.
I’m done. Indifferent. Could not care less.
If you have to bomb little kids and send dogs out against human beings, give me a break.”
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.
One of rules for him and his ilk, and another for us.
Like Rush says, the Left always tells you who they fear.
Don’t get the impression that you arouse my anger. You see, one can only be angry with those he respects.
Richard M. Nixon quote
As long as it ends in an A and not an R its A-OK!
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?
Rangel is just another upitty N____ , race baiter with a big mouth.
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.
Rangel is raciest because he said crackER instead of cracKA
No one expects anything better or different from him.
Rangel doing his part to help ease race tensions in the country. A true leader. A read inspiration. An honest gentleman. Someone thugs can look up to.
Didn’t DeeDee explain to us that “crackers” ain’t raciss?
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...
Damn! District gerrymandering gone wild.
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.
Then imagine being Charlie Rangel.
....but I repeat myself.
apologies to Mark Twain
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.
monkey see monkey do
In Seattle its called a"Brown Bag"! Ooops!
He’s like the tribal warlords who profited by enslaving black people.
Censure and MoveOn.
Well...I would be offended if I was a thinned skin sissy like most blacks are.
I,for one , am proud of my skin color.they Call me all the names they want cause its the same as saying all whites have cooties from a 5 year.
PBW. Professional Black Whiners.
They care only about power, revenge, and hatred.
I could chew nails while attempting to hold back my tongue.
Probably a stupid question, but, were Rangel’s remarks carried by any major news organization? I suspect not but “hope springs eternal”.
White crackers are not to be confused with brown crackers or black crackers.
Blacks are thin skinned - we’re not. We don’t put people in jail or beat them up for calling us names. That’s a black thing.... a gangbanger loser style... That said Rangel has shown his true colors...he’s a lowlife.
Pretty ballsy for a proven tax cheat, but hey Charlie has lived long enough to know Black Democrats aren’t held responsible for ANYTHING they say or do.
That’s no hot spot of high IQ but I do see some tax evaders.
