Outrageous! Charlie Rangel compares tea party to Hamas terrorist group (VIDEO)
Biz Pac Review ^ | June 20 2014 | Tom Tillison

At this stage, 84-year-old U.S. Rep. Charlie Rangel, D-N.Y., understands that he can pretty much get away with saying or doing anything.

If the lawmaker cheated on his taxes with little consequence, what harm can possibly come from comparing the tea party to the terrorist group Hamas.

Which is precisely what Rangel did in an interview taped on Thursday, as he discussed the three Israeli teenagers recently kidnapped.

“We know that these victims, these kids are being held by people that have no moral standards… the question is how do we handle these types of people who don’t mind dying,” Rangel said. “They hate so much that they don’t mind dying themselves.”

“That’s worst than the tea party’s thinking,” the Democrat added.

“You can’t compare the Tea Party to Palestinian terrorists!” the unidentified radio host interjected.

“Well, I am just saying that is a cult type of thinking — its’ a poor analogy when you talk about terrorism — but when you talk about not recognizing the United States as a nation, not recognizing the president, trying to repeal bills that are already law and sticking to the principles of the civil war, you know these are people that you cannot talk rationally to and the president can’t,” Rangel responded. “And at some point, if the Palestinians come to the table and say they can’t control the people in the backroom, the same way Republicans say they can’t control the Tea Party…”

Rangel rambled on about not allowing someone to come to the table if “their primary goal is to have you distinguished.” Speaking of which, the need for a mandatory retirement age in Congress is long overdue.

Charlie Rangel is an old senile Blackskin that knows his Black Privilege insulates him from any MSM criticism.

If a Conservative had made a similar remark about a left-wing group, a young female very attractive member of that group would have been made available within an hour to ask "do I look like a terrorist, Mr. Conservative Nasty Guy."

But our side doesn't play like that.

Simple once you understand the playbook courtesy of Eddie01

Eight Commandments of the Liberal Left

Thou shalt create an illusion of invulnerability shared by most members to foster excessive optimism and encourage extreme risks taking

Thou shall not allow any member to question the group's inherent morality, instead members shall be encouraged to ignore the ethical or moral consequences of their decisions

Thou shalt promote collective efforts to rationalize in order to discount warnings, or other information that might lead members to reconsider their assumptions before they recommit themselves to their assumptions

Thou shalt reinforce stereotyped views of enemy leaders as too evil to warrant genuine attempts to negotiate, or as too weak and stupid to counter whatever risky attempts are made to defeat their purpose

Thou shalt self-censor any deviation from the apparent group consensus, inclining each member to minimize the importance of their doubts and counterarguments

Thou shalt create and maintain a shared illusion of unanimity concerning judgement conforming to the majority view

Thou shalt apply direct pressure on any member who expresses strong arguments against any of the group's stereotypes, illusions, or commitments, making clear that this type of dissent is contrary to what is expected of all loyal members

Thou shalt appoint mind guards to protect the group from adverse information that might shatter their shared complacency about the effectiveness and morality of their decisions
