Congressman Charlie Rangel who is quick to slander the tea party with charges of racism, was a guest on Monday's "The Ed Show" on MSNBC, where he made a statement that appeared to be startingly racist: "I was in combat, and I’m telling you, I saw more dead people, but I never was moved until I saw dead people that looked like me in my uniform."
Rangel was on the show to discuss the police who turned their backs on Mayor De Blasio during Sunday’s funeral for slain New York Police Department officer Wenjian Liu. When asked to comment, Rangel gave a rambling answer calling the cops haters, talked about the war dead he saw, and finished by complaining about what he called the "blue wall of silence."
Schultz: Isn’t it important though to point out that not all the police officers turned their back? There's a few in the ranks that are saying you know, by respecting these officers, okay, we've got to move on, but there are some who say they don't want to move on. Your thoughts, Charlie.
Rangel: It's awkward, because no one wants to be in the position that you're not with your colleagues, right or wrong, but when the moral issue raises it beyond just being liked, and you have so much love and respect for the job, that you have assumed that you're not going to allow a handful of people who are blinded by hate to spoil the reputation.
Wonderful....What a wonderful way to "heal"......I guess we can add Charlie to the list a race baiters in the Democrat's ranks. He can join Ho;der , "Rev. Sharpton , Barry , etc.
I would say that is one racist comment. The police can voice their opinion also they have that right - they chose to turn their backs I agree with them. That mayor deBlasio is a communist and hates police. What is with that anyway. Because they protect or because they love their country. Something deBlasio does not do.
DAMN RIGHT. They've certainly earned it. And on top of that...what better way to make a statement? They didn't hurt anybody, didn't beat up anybody, didn't vandalize, didn't riot or loot. So what's the problem? I'm already tired of hearing statements from people like Rangel, de Blasio, and the police commissioner that it was wrong. People who put their lives on the line have more rights to "make a statement" than most as far as I'm concerned.
It's awkward, because no one wants to be in the position that you're not with your colleagues, right or wrong, but when the moral issue raises it beyond just being liked, and you have so much love and respect for the job, that you have assumed that you're not going to allow a handful of people who are blinded by hate to spoil the reputation.
Don't know about that. I'd be hard pressed to figure out who's lower than maggot shit---Rangel, Sharpton, Obama........
holy cow, I didn't know charlie boy, the tax cheat, was also racist !
Everyone on the left is so Racist.
Charlie Rangle is another black racist who should be in chains like his ancestors were. Back of the bus where you belong Charlie.
It makes me sick to my stomach that we are going to pay this racist pig for the rest of his life for his worthless contibutions as a Congressman. They (all politicians) should all take note and hang their heads in shame if they have ever agreed with this idiot.
"We the People" need to take the trash out that has been stinking up our Country for years. We should start with obummer and all of his cronies and put them all in jail and make them pay back all of the salaries and benefits they gleaned off the real United States Citizens. We seem to have very few good leaders and even less heroes anymore.
CHARLEY RANGEL DID NOT CARE ABOUT BLACK SOLDIERS EITHER. THAT IS WHY HE VOTED TO BURN THEIR FLAG AND KILL THEIR KIDS UNDER THE COMMUNIST LIE CALLED CHOICE. DIRTY CHARLIE IS A PARTY OVER COUNTRY RAT. HE IS THE COMMUNIST PARTY'S ROLE MODEL FOR A COMBAT VETERAN. YET O'NEIL WHO KILLED BIN LADEN CAN'T GET A 16 YEAR PARTIAL PENSION. NOW THE ISLAMO LENINISTS IN THE COMMUNIST PARTY WANT TO PROSECUTE HIM FOR BEING AN AMERICAN. COMMUNIST HOLLYWOOD MADE THE MOVIE GIVING OBAMA THE COWARD CREDIT FOR THE HIT. YET OBAMA GAVE BIN LADEN FOUR MONTHS TO GET AWAY. AS USUAL LEFT THE DOCTOR BEHIND AND NEVER NEGOTIATED FOR HIS RELEASE LIKE HE DID FOR BO BIRDCALL AND HIS MOMMY.
I BELIEVE THE GOOD BLACK PEOPLE SHOULD DISTANCE THEMSELVES FROM THESE LOWLIFE NIGGERS BEFORE WE ALL GO DOWN. THE MINORITIES NOW SEEM TO BE IN CONTROL.
