Charlie, the tax cheat, talks about the Tea Party:
“It is the same group we faced in the South with those white crackers and the dogs and the police. They didn’t care about how they looked," Rangel said.Maybe like me, you'll have difficulty remembering a Tea Party releasing of the hounds. Or bombing. Or even using water cannons. They have asked for equal treatment by the IRS; maybe that's what he's talking about.
Because of this, Rangel said the Tea Party could be defeated using the same tactics employed against Jim Crow.
"It was just fierce indifference to human life that caused America to say enough is enough. ‘I don’t want to see it and I am not a part of it.’ What the hell! If you have to bomb little kids and send dogs out against human beings, give me a break,” said Rangel.
This is just silly. But it also cheapens the Civil Rights Movement. It's like the feminists who call it rape unless you have a signed, notarized, contract for intimacy. Opposing socialized medicine is not the same as bombing churches. period.
Now go pay your taxes Mr. Rangel.
