Rangel: Tea Party Republicans Negotiating ‘The Same Way They Fought As Confederates’
cbslocal.com ^ | October 15, 2013

Posted on 10/15/2013 2:07:29 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe

WASHINGTON (CBS DC) – In a heated Tuesday interview, Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., talked with CNN host Ashley Banfield about his belief that House Republicans are “embarrassing” the country’s democratic process.

Rangel, who is a member of the House Ways and Means Committee, said that he believes the Tea Party members of the House are “against anything that comes out of these negotiations.”

When asked for his reactions to House Republican leadership’s provisions, Rangel expressed his frustration with the congressional logjam.

“This isn’t a question of the House and Senate differing. This is not even a question of Republicans and Democrats differing. This is all about a handful of people who got elected as Republicans that want to bring down our government,” said Rangel.

“You can see it in the streets, you can see where they’re coming from, and the same way they fought as Confederates they want to bring down the government and reform it.”

CNN host Ashley Banfield interrupted Rangel to confirm if he was likening the Tea Party candidates to Civil War Confederates.

“Well, I can tell you this, if you look at the states that they control, take a look at the Dixiecrats, see how they went over to Republican Party,” Rangel pointed out, although Banfield quickly noted that “Michele Bachmann is not from Dixie.”

“I’m telling you one thing, if the Republicans really want to bring the government back, if the Republicans want to make certain that this country maintains its fiscal integrity, all they have to do is to accept the Senate [deal].”

Banfield stated that Rangel, despite his deep disagreement with some of the conservative House Republicans, should compromise with his “ilk” in an effort to make certain that negotiations re-open the government.

She pointed out a Washington Post poll showing that Republicans have a 74 percent disapproval rating, Democrats with 61 percent and President Obama at a 53 percent approval rating for how they are all handling the federal budget negotiations.

Rangel conceded that he believes both parties of Congress are doing a “terrible” job, but went on to say that regardless of party differences, the “integrity” of the United States should not be held hostage.

“We don’t want this for Obama and we don’t want it for any president,” Rangel insisted. “Republicans or conservatives, to put a gun at the president’s head, saying if you don’t agree with me politically, we’re going to take down the United States of America and those countries that depend on our dollar. That is absolutely ridiculous. It’s not a compromise. It’s a hostage taking.”

Sadly, Obama is fighting like Lincoln did, illegally and unconstitutionally.

Lincoln was the first Republican president who signed the emancipation proclamation which freed the slaves.

Aside from all of the other nonsense in the article - the Rebs were happy to leave the yankees with their own government; they didn't want to bring down or reform anything......they wanted to leave.

- One good thing in the Confederate Constitution: Term limits.

Hahahahaha! Nice try! The Democrats are the party of the Confederacy, the KKK, Jim Crow, segregation, The Knights of the Golden Circle (KGC), the Know-Nothings, George Wallace, Bull Connor, the Dixiecrats, and on and on.

Too bad he knows nothing about history! He still thinks that it is the Democrats that freed his ancestors. Geez, no wonder, the Educations system is so flawed. If he knew the truth, he would be a Republican.

Isn’t it special the way demonrats, especially Blacks, rewrite history to (pardon me)whitewash the fact that Confederates and the Klan were demonrats and pretend they were Republicans? Sadder still that the media does not call them out on the lie.

Charlie you are either dumber than a box of rocks

or purposefully lying to the folks.

The KKK was the terrorist wing of the Democrat Party.

The Republican Party has been freeing the slaves
from the Democrat Party for over a hundred years.

Your Party wants to enslave all Americans.

WHY STEALING MUST BE AVOIDED

"Thou shalt not steal."

This Commandment, as has been said, forbids taking things wrongfully, and we can bring forth many reasons why it is given. The first is because of the gravity of this sin, which is likened to murder: "The bread of the needy is the life of the poor; he that defraudeth them thereof is a man of blood."[18] And again: "He that sheddeth blood and he that defraudeth the laborer of his hire are brothers."[19]

He was prohibited in the north because it was a “taking”

Is the Honorable US Representative Rangel aware that the slave-owning Rebels of the Confederate States of America were .... Democrats?
And does he know that he is a Democrat.
I don’t think he does.

Maybe he’s just a s***-head. There’s a lot of that going around on the left.

They’re getting what they voted for and now they’re blaming the ‘minority’ party who has virtually NO power in Washington!

WHY don’t the Republicans SAY THIS?!?!?!?

The Emancipation Proclamation did not end slavery. Slavery was ended when the 13th Amendment was ratified.

“You can see it in the streets, you can see where they’re coming from, and the same way they fought as Confederates they want to bring down the government and reform it.”

So does that mean the Civil War wasn’t about slavery after all? It was the ‘War for Government Reform’?

And crooks and thieves still living large on taxpayer's money!

The panel also ordered Rangel to pay restitution of any unpaid taxes

He apologized for any embarrassment he has caused and stressed that he would like the panel to acknowledge that he never sought any personal gain and is not corrupt. Rangel also lashed out the press.

“What the press has done to me and my family is totally unfair and they will continue to call me a crook and call me corrupt,” he said.

Rangel, the 80-year-old, 20-term House veteran, admitted some fault in his initial statement to the panel, but added: "I had no intent to evade or avoid the law."
