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

YIKES!!! Chelsea Clinton Emphatically States A Person With A Beard And A Penis Can ‘Absolutely’ Identify As A Woman

  • The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification
  • In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons about transgender self-identification
  • Chelsea Clinton replied ‘yes’ emphatically when asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman
  • ‘It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently,’ Hillary said
  • Aitkenhead said Hillary became ‘uneasy’ when the question was asked while Chelsea shot a ‘furious stare’ at the journalist as her mother answered
  • Hillary added: ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw’

(Daily Mail) – It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo.

The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked ‘uneasy’, and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting.

‘Errr. I’m just learning about this,’ Hillary responded. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.’

The Clintons sat sown with Aitkenhead to promote the book they co-authored, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

The book features Danica Roem, the first trans woman elected to a U.S. state legislature.

According Aitkenhead’s account, she tells Hillary during the interview that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.’

Hillary nods in agreement, while Chelsea ‘stiffens and stares at me’, according to Aitkenhead.

The journalist then adds that many women of Hillary’s generation are uncomfortable with biological males sharing women’s bathrooms.

‘I would say that, absolutely,’ Hillary nods firmly. ‘Absolutely. Yes.’

That’s when Chelsea begins shooting a ‘furious stare’ at Aitkenhead, who points it out to her.

‘I’m a terrible actor’, Chelsea laughs.

Chelsea then says she is thrilled with the National Health Service’s decision to assign patients to single-sex wards according to the gender they identify as, instead of their biological make up.

‘How can you treat someone if you don’t recognize who they feel and know in their core they are?’ Chelsea says.

‘And I strongly support children being able to play on the sports teams that match their own gender identity,’ she adds. ‘I think we need to be doing everything we can to support kids in being whoever they know themselves to be and discovering who they are.’

At this point Hillary looks conflicted.

‘I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is,’ Hillary says. ‘There are women who’d say [to a trans woman], ”You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.” I hear that conversation all the time.’

Despite the clear tension in the room, the pair say they don’t argue about this topic.

But according to Aitkenhead, ‘I get the impression they don’t like to present anything less than a united front to the world.’
