Charlie Rangel: I Only Cared About Dead Soldiers When They 'Looked Like Me'

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. 

RANGEL IS THE LOWEST FORM OF LIFE .

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.

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
