Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) decided to double down on his charges that the GOP is racist. On Wednesday afternoon, he was interviewed on CNN, and snapped this regarding Republicans:
We all know who they are and where they’re from. So maybe ‘slavery’ was the wrong word, but racial superiority, unfortunately, is the disease that a handful of people have, and they were holding back the Republican majority in the House. Maybe now that Republican leadership doesn’t need them, they can go along with people who want to improve the quality of life for all Americans and not those who just look like them.
Rangel finished his tirade by saying, “The whole world knows who they are, and certainly Americans do and certainly Speaker Boehner does.”
Only days ago, at a campaign rally for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, Rangel blasted:
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!
