More race baiting out of the Democrats, this time by influential veteran Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.), who suggested Tea Party Republicans were refighting the Civil War.
Here’s what he said on CNN today.
This is all about a handful of people who got elected as Republicans that want to bring down our government. You can see it in the streets, you can see where they’re coming from. And the same way they fought as Confederates, they want to bring down the government and re-form it.
Rangel himself is the disgraced former Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee who, after having been forced to step down from his chairmanship in 2010, was found guilty of 11 violations of Congressional ethics rules and censured by the House.
