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.

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.

 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.

SICK: Leprosy On The Rise In Los Angeles 

Ahh, the joys of open borders and Democrat leadership.

California is not just a public toilet but now there is evidence that leprosy is on the rise in Los Angeles County.

Barack Obama changed US law in 2016 and allowed immigrants with blistering STDs and leprosy to migrate to the US.

Medscape reported:

Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.

“Hansen’s disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians,” coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.

Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.

Multibacillary leprosy (MB) cases outnumbered paucibacillary leprosy (PB) cases by nearly eight to one (88.6% vs. 11.4%, respectively), and Latino patients were more likely than non-Latino patients to have MB, as were patients from Central or South America (versus other regions).

Most patients (80.7%) received multidrug therapy, and most (92.6%) received antibiotics for more than two years, especially if they had MB.

Only about half of patients (56.7%) had World Health Organization (WHO) grade 0 disability (no signs or symptoms suggestive of leprosy or disability) at the one-year follow-up, whereas 16.0% had grade 1 disability (loss of protective sensation) and 26.2% had grade 2 disability (visible deformity) at the last follow-up.

Among the patients who lost protective sensation, 87.7% (50/57) did not regain it following therapy.
