Uber Corrupt Charles Rangel

Is it just me or does anyone else think that once you have proven yourself to be morally bankrupt by being one of the top 15 most corrupt members of Congress and be as racist as Charlie Rangel is, you don't really get to speak out on what someone else's views are. Yet we have to listen to rants from Hose members like Rangel who is about as crooked a politician as there is.

Rangel doesn't have a leg to stand on, but he attacks the Tea Party in the video below as being, "from that part of the country that the states owned slaves" and because,  "they don’t believe that the Union won" the Civil War.

Never has a political party been so vilified and a attacked from politicians as filthy and shady as Charles Rangel.

Read more below from Roll Call and watch the video after that:

During the Congressional Black Caucus’ special order hour on the House floor Monday night, Rep. Charles B. Rangel hammered the tea party not only for embracing the Confederate flag, but also for hating President Barack Obama “as much as their [Dixiecrat] predecessors probably hated Abe Lincoln.”

“[In] some parts of the United States of America they don’t believe that the Union won. The reason I come to that conclusion is that … I have never seen so many Confederate flags that represent groups that are proud of the fact that they call themselves the Tea Party,” the New York Democrat said during his 10-minute floor speech, referring to an event he attended with President Ulysses S. Grant’s great-great-grandson. “They’re from that part of the country that the states owned slaves.”

Rangel, the second most senior member of the Congressional Black Caucus, has pushed the White House to do more to combat poverty and inequality. The Senate recently passed an extension of unemployment benefits and there are new signs the House may take up legislation on an immigration overhaul.
