Posted on 05/06/2014 5:09:13 PM PDT by bkopto
During an interview on Fusion's America with Jorge Ramos, Former Florida Governor Charlie Crist, D, cited racism and other intolerant views as the reason he left the Republican party.
Crist, who is running for his old office against incumbent Governor Rick Scott, R, said he felt uncomfortable being affiliated with GOP ideals, which he said are perceived as "anti-women, anti-minority, anti-women, anti-gay, anti-education, and anti-environment."
He spoke about racism in the party, calling it "intolerable" and a "big reason" why he left, criticizing Republican's refusal to work together with President Obama.
"I couldn't be consistent with myself and my core beliefs, and stay with a party that was so unfriendly toward the African-American president, I'll just go there," he said. "I was a Republican and I saw the activists and what they were doing, it was intolerable to me."
Ramos challenged Crist's motivations for leaving the GOP, accusing him of switching due to his loss to Marco Rubio when he ran for the Senate in the 2010 Republican primary, but Crist said, "No, I left the Republican Party because the leadership went off the cliff."
"I am liberated as a Democrat, my true soul is able to be seen, and I couldn't be happier about it," he added.

Charlie Crist is FOS. He didn’t quit, he was thrown out.
having orange skin is not a racial issue. It’s a mental problem, Charley.
Yes, of course, we’re all racists, even those of us who have adopted children of other ancestries.
Have they overplayed that card yet?
I can’t believe the mileage they continue to get from it, false as it is.
He’s sold his soul way too many times for it to be liberated.
I’m sure he’s outraged what happened to Allen West.
Why does no one ever ask these creeps to prove what they say? Name names if there is true racism. Bet you can’t do it Charlie Creep.
He sites his only reason for saying the GOP is racist is beause they refuse to work with Obama. Doesn’t Obama consistently refuse to work with Republicans?
How about giving us some specific names Klanboy.
He left because he lies like a stinkin’ Democrapweasel.
Me me me... give me, give me, give me.
Happier? Why, he's almost...gay.
There's no proof that the GOP is any of those things, but the democrats say they are so that's good enough for me. *derp*
We dislike orange people?
Of all the pathetic people in politics this guy must be the worst.
The “anti” examples have nothing to do with race. They are associated with SEX. As a Floridian, I’m embarrassed to see the POS, Charlie Crist, running for Governor. He will not win, he is a loser. A neighbor went to Tallahassee to join Crist’s administration, it was the worst mistake he ever made. A short time later he was jobless....Crist is like a boat without a rudder. He has no goal other than to stay afloat at the taxpayer’s expense. He is a FAGGOT who should be put back in the closet in November.
Then why are there more real blacks in the R Party?
Maybe he’s thinking about all the muslims in the democrat party.
Apparently the GOP isn’t racist enough for old Chucky so he joined the party of the Klan. As we used to say “smooth move exlax!”
Did he finally LIBERATE his poor beard wife in this conversion?
Poor Charlie Crist........the gentleman has lost his marbles or high on toomuch Kool-Aid!!! Methinks the great state of Florida is not going to be kind to Democrats this year!!!
I’m happy about it too. The GOP has too many RiNOs like him.
Oops. Does saying that make me a racist?
Gosh Charlie, how many times can Trayvon vote anyway? This might work for Charlie. Let's see:
he's got the gay vote + fraud.
He's got African-American Vote + ,i.MASSIVEFraud.
"Good ole Massa Charlie, he be on the down-low, but he be no racis!
He'll have the non-Cuban but Latino vote + Fraud. He'll have the illegal Latino vote, too, but that's already fraud
He'll have the "Women's Right to Choose" + Fraud
He'll have the "Registered up North+ Registered in FL Vote." That's already a massive fraud, perhaps over 50 thousand.
And he'll have the Charlie Crist Fans vote. (WTF, my Grandma loved Liberace)Perhaps not fraud, just stupid, which is a Florida specialty.
And never forget, he has the Morgan and Morgan War Chest to pay for all the fraud.
Yup, this boy could take it all back!
“”I am liberated as a Democrat, my true soul is able to be seen, and I couldn’t be happier about it,” he added.”
How could supporting Socialist/Marxist/Communist Dimocraps be liberating? Liberation was for those that managed to escape without being shot.
PTUI on Crist and all he stands for!
you would think even honest democrat would not want such a turncoat in their ranks.
If he stabbed his old friends in the back he will stab his new friends in the back.
I thought it was because he couldn’t get a good backs smack or wax claps or whatever he was talking about.
A blatant play for the black vote in Miami. Blay. Tunt.
Charlie Crist with his good friend, convicted Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein.
That is what you call, ‘Going all in’...
He should fit right in with the anti white racism of the Democrat party. Especially with Obama’s racist Attorney General, Eric “my people” Holder, who has openly stated that federal hate crime laws do NOT cover white Americans when they are violently attacked because of their race.
And true to his word, Holder has ignored the hundreds of mob attacks, knock out attacks, and numerous other racist murders and hate rapes by blacks against whites since he became America’s chief law officer.
Despite Christs pious righteousness, he is joining with those who enable, ignore, and even support this racial violence.
I am amazed that there’s a chance Crist could become governor of Florida again. If it happens, the people of Florida deserve what they get.
Racism. It’s all they have left and it doesn’t even mean anything, anymore....
Do you think he forgot what party Bubba Clinton and Joe the Biden and Dirty Harry Reid are in?
If there’s anyone who deserves a feet-off-the-ground nuclear wedgie, it’s Charlie Crist.
He is a bald faced liar
LOL - right, right. He wasn't even a Republican anymore when he became a Democrat (he was an Independent and had in fact just been on the ballot as one in a major election - the U.S. Senate race) - and when actually did leave the Republican Party it was because he refused to accept the fact that a Hispanic candidate was beating him in the primary and he refused to support his candidacy - the man who beat him in the general election - Marco Rubio.
And perhaps he hasn't noticed - but on the GOP ticket he is opposing for re-election, the incumbent Lt. Governor is a black woman!
The funniest thing I think is that once he gets elected, if he does, he will probably turn on the Democrats.
He’s got so much tan, I can see how he’d be exposed to ‘waycism’.
So he prefers the party of baby killing and pederasty?
