Charlie Rangel Says Some Republicans ‘Believe That Slavery Isn’t Over’


charles-rangelVeteran Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) had some harsh words for the Republican Party during a Thursday campaign rally for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D).

As he has done repeatedly before, Rangel compared some members of the GOP to confederates from the Civil War era. But at the Thursday evening event, he added that they “believe slavery isn’t over.”

“We have to win. We have to be able to send a national message with Andrew Cuomo. And the thing is everything we believe in -everything we believe in – they hate. They don’t disagree – they hate! They think if you didn’t come from Europe 30 years ago, you didn’t even make it. Some of them believe that slavery isn’t over and they and think they won the Civil War!” Rangel shouted.

In contrast, Rangel said the Democratic Party was doing “God’s work” on issues important to the American people.

“And so what we have to do is send a collective voice,” he said of the upcoming midterm elections. “Everything we’re doing is God’s work: education, healthcare, affordable housing, discrimination, paying people the minimum wage.”

  1. Rangel is a danger to the idea that humanity grows with wealth.

    His pretense that we live in the same careers as 150 years ago is casual confrontation with mixed futures.

    This is a tactic to destroy confidence in American dormant pride.

    To think he can squander the right to limit one’s conversation about freedom is atrotious.

    Guns for his ship are styrofoam.


  2. Rangel didn’t learn American history or he would know that the Democrat Party has a long and unsavory history of deliberate repression of black Americans since before the Civil War. And Abraham Lincoln, and the Republican Party, worked and legislated against slavery and for civil rights for ALL against the opposition of the Democrat party!
