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.

...And I will only be glad when Charlie Rangel is DEAD...then I don't have to listen to his bullshit...I believe we go back before the civil rights law. Rewrite and say everyone has there freedom so be responsible for themselves.

Oh Charlie, what kind of dumb statement is that ?? I'm white but my soul is black.

Thomas T.Bors.

Disgusting! Insular,Bigoted LITTLE MAN....Cannot STOOP any LOWER?

Too bad it WASN'T him! 

And big fat Socialist Ed Schultz didn't even blink an eye. Imagine the hell-hole the U.S. will be when they and Illegals, are in the majority, the PLAN of the Democrat/Socialist Party.

Too bad you didn't die in combat charlie,you'd have been considered a hero instead of a pig !!!

It is called WHITE RACISM.

Charlie is an ass...just another useful idiot looking for that lime light.

OK and I only care that the terrorists that look like charlie should be dead!  

You know what?  Screw them!  They dare say crap like that and WE'RE THE RACISTS?  I don't care any more if some commie calls me a racist!  These black "activists" are what has made me a racist.  If it weren't for white people charlie and his ilk would still be someone's property!  

A Korean veteran who won the Bronze Star and Purple Heart can say: 

"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."

I'm a White man, and a retired Navy man who served 12 months in the Delta of Viet Nam.  During my 20 year career I served in many different positions, making Master Chief Petty Officer (E-9) in 16 years.  I say this only because of the Management positions I was in. 

From day one of my military career I NEVER saw Black, White, Hispanic, Asian, or Native American inside the Uniform that I loved so much.  What I saw were my Brothers and Sisters, and thus MY family!!!  For Rangel to say what he did, SO MANY YEARS after the. fact tells me the "issue of racism is not academic to this man - it's a hatred that he hides behind, and uses for his ego and to spew his hatred that has consumed him".  Unfortunately for ALL OF US,  "He" is the one fanning the flames of Racial Hatred! 

I've seen death, and death DOES NOT come in color when it's your Brother or Sister in uniform!  

Then he stands up and accuses me and you, who DON'T SHARE HIS PODEUM, and to all that will  listen HE says WE are racists!!!  Mr. Rangel, YOU need help!!!!!!!!

ALERT ALERT

Deep State Treason:  Former State Dept. Official Under Trump Tells China To Quit Negotiating Until Trump Is Removed In 2020

Deep state traitors no longer hide their deep hatred for the American people —

Mrs. Susan Thornton, the former acting assistant secretary of state in the Trump administration, told her Beijing audience to stop negotiating until President Trump is removed from office in 2020.

Until July 2018, she was Acting Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs at the Department of State and led East Asia policy making amid crises with North Korea, escalating trade tensions with China, and a fast-changing international environment.

The Conservative Treehouse and The South China Morning News reported:

A former official in the Trump administration has said that China can weather the storm brought by the trade war with the United States but might have to “keep steady, keep their heads down and wait” for change in the White House.

Susan Thornton, former acting assistant secretary of state to US President Donald Trump, told a gathering in Shanghai on Wednesday that she hoped a trade deal between the US and China could be concluded by next month.

But the reality was that it would “take a while” for China and the US to talk about cooperation again, Thornton, who in 20 years rose to become the US State Department’s chief negotiator for East Asia and Pacific affairs, told the South China Morning Post.

“I want to be optimistic,” said Thornton, whose 27-year career in Washington ended in July. “I tell all our foreign counterparts they should keep steady, keep their heads down and wait. [They should] try to not let anything change dramatically.”

“If this sceptical attitude towards talking diplomacy continues in this administration, you might have to wait till another administration,” Thornton said at an event held by National Committee of US-China relations and Shanghai’s American Chamber.
