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 dont mind dying, Rangel said. They hate so much that they dont mind dying themselves.
Thats worst than the tea partys thinking, the Democrat added.
You cant 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 cant, Rangel responded. And at some point, if the Palestinians come to the table and say they cant control the people in the backroom, the same way Republicans say they cant 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.

domestic terrorist = anyone to the right of Hillary Clinton
I wish I was joking!
Charlie Rangel is senile. Has been for years. Was just a batshit crazy leftist democrat crook before that.
See now, that’s confusing because I know Charlie likes Hamas.
But our side doesn't play like that.
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
We’all need to send him a decently phrased mail/email to tell him how we view that remark.
Charlie Rangel ,video , no thanks can’t stand his voice
