In resent interview, Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) said Tea Partiers are the "same group" who fought for segregation during the Civil Rights movement: “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. 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”. Rangel then said the Tea Party could be defeated using the same tactics employed against Jim Crow.
Where is the media outcry? Why are they not calling him a racist demanding an apology? The answer is simple. The media is a bunch of hypocrites. As long as you believe in their progressive teaching, the first Amendment applies to you. If you disagree with them, then you are branded a racist or a right-wing nut. Our country can not function like this. If no one can speak their mind freely without being publicly humiliated, how will any effective dialog ever occur that could possible fix America's problems. The answer is- it can't. Welcome to Obamamerca!
