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.

And yet, he remains as a representative of the people. How is that?
The President, the media, the Democrats and the quislings in the Republican Party who dare to call themselves “conservatives” are all ganging up on the real conservatives. They’re all running very scared. Why, if we’re such a little minority?
mmmm, just curious, isn’t it. It’s almost as if ‘conservatives’ or tea party activists were a vast majority in America and like we are about to throw their butts out of DC or something.
You’re both spot on. They’re starting to sweat – all of them. They’ve been exposed for the world to see, so now they’re striking back at the conservatives by calling us confederates. Guess we can add confederate to the running list of names we’ve been called by the ruling class over the past few weeks.
Seems to the Democrat Talking point of the week. Go over to Salon.com. So far I’ve counted three articles in as many days pushing this retarded idea that some how the Republics are all Neo-Confederates now and that means they’re closet racist and anti-worker Elites.
Closet racists?!! Nah, we’re the new KKK, or terrorists, or spouse abusers, or sigh. whatever.
Do these potty-mouthed politicians realize the name-calling is spread all over every American that doesn’t agree with them?
This name-calling is so, so, tiresome.

If that’s Confederate, Chuckles, then guilty as charged…
BTW, Charles, most of those “Confederates” you revile were, uh, Democrats. The guy most directly responsible for their defeat was (wait for it) a Republican.
Factor THAT into your next fact-free speech…
Also, the only people I see trying to “bring down the goverment and re-form it” are Obama and his pals, following Marxist tenants and Alinsky rules all the way. Consider that, even using the slanted, fake Obama numbers, those “Republicans” STILL represent at least 48% of the Country. Unless YOU have an issue with our Constitutional form of Government, the Government be US.
Stick THAT in your “tax-free” home in the Dominican Republic and live with it!
I have gotten into SO, SO many arguments trying to explain that “DEMOCRATS” are the ‘racist’ party…
-Just read some ‘US History’ from 1860s to the 1950s…
You mean like this?
It’s an old link I’ve posted before, but its one of the better summaries of that subject I’ve seen…
Well said cincycinco, well said!
the difference between the Confederates, the current Republicans, the current Democrats and the Tea Party is that ONLY the Tea Party is loyal to the United States Constitution.
And yet none of the press, or the talking heads, call them on the fact that they are often referring to Democrats. Truth in America, if you can say it in public and it goes unchallenged in the media, it must be so.
My ancestors from Ireland walked off the boat in New York, and within an hour “signed-up/enlisted” in the UNION ARMY in 1862, so guys like Charles Rangel…
would be allowed to spew their hate speech…???
Doesn’t that moron know that Republicans were the ones who fought for the rights of African-Americans, that the Democrats were the ones who fought to keep them enslaved?
He’s brainless, and, his mouth runs like diarrhea.
Interesting…I really see only one guy trying to re-form govt. And he’s a Dem.
Anyhow, I thought we were abusive husbands, not Confederate soldiers. I am so confused.
I wonder how much he has hidden away in his freezer?
Megyn Kelly did a good job last night pointing out the wide span of the coverage coverage of the Veteran protest on Sunday. You had thought the Confederates are coming back from the dead and rising once again as Zombies according to one CNN host. The problem was there was one person walking with a Confederate flag.
So, this there way of linking a tea party rally to the KKK and racism. Personally, I wonder if the guy with the Rebel flag was a plant by CNN or the DEMs.
That was my thought too, PBB – a plant. It’s so typical of Obama, OFA, ACORN, and the Dems. It was a mighty big flag…couldn’t miss it.
The poster boy for term limits…..just sayin…..
The pot calling the kettle black, don’t ya think?
Race baiting is fishing for a reaction. The Dems tackle box has only one hook in it – don’t bite and they can’t reel you in.
They don’t reel me in. I laugh at their performances. What doesn’t kill us only makes us stronger. Rush Limbaugh was right when he said, “If you want to make a Conservative angry, tell him a lie. If you want to make a Liberal angry, tell him the truth.”
So true. They actually bore me with their tiresome chants of arsonists and racists. Kinda reminds me of small children, “I want a cookie, NOW” or “Are we there yet”. I think it was a Dear Heloise column, many moons ago, when she suggested to a reader’s letter about being asked some gawd awful question …”Don’t dignify it with a response.”
Rangel comparing Republicans to confederates is ironic since NYC actually sided with the confederates against freeing slaves. Wall Street was making a bundle off the cotton trade.
Mr. Rengel does not know US history if he believes the South, or Confederates, wanted to bring down the government and re-form it.
Yes, slavery was an issue. However, there are two main reasons, which seem to be lost on our PC society:
1. There were economics and social differences between the North and the South.
2. States versus federal rights.
Many felt that the constitution ignored the rights of states to continue to act independently. They felt that the states should still have the right to decide if they were willing to accept certain federal acts. This resulted in the idea of nullification, whereby the states would have the right to rule federal acts unconstitutional. The federal government denied states this right. However, proponents such as John C. Calhoun fought vehemently for nullification. When nullification would not work and states felt that they were no longer respected, they moved towards secession.
I figure if they are upsetting Charley Rangel, they’re doing a good job.
No Mr. Rangel, no one wants to bring our government down. However many Americans want to rid our government of despicable, dishonest and corrupt individuals like you sir. Your departure from the U.S. House of Representatives is long overdue. Your time representing no one but yourself is soon going to come to and end.
have you no shame, Democrat party? at long last, sir(s), have you no shame?
I mean seriously. will we ever get to the point where someone says “OK this is ridiculous. the Republicans don’t want to lynch black people, and it’s not ok to wish a horrible death upon your political opponents”?
wouldn’t it be refreshing if our post-partisan president stood up and said something? that’ll be the day: he’s the worst offender.
I love being lectured to by criminals.
The Confederates WERE Democrats.
The Republican Party was the abolitionist party.
