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

Colin Campbell, Business Insider, October 30, 2014

Veteran 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 that 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.

    They’re the ones who hate. They hate us for disagreeing with them!

    • Publius Pompilius Quietus

      Liberals are very tolerant as long as everyone agrees with them–if not, their rhetoric toward opponents teeters on the fascistic.

      • Screamin_Ruffed_Grouse

        More like teeters on the hysterical and completely detatched.

  • Truthseeker

    Diversity is divisiveness. Always has been, always will be. Our people and their people are simply not compatible at the societal level.

    • guest

      Right. They hate everything about us Whites and how we live, yet they still follow us around. They constantly say that Whites are evil racists, yet they believe that multiculturalism should only be enforced on White people. Go figure.

      This enforced diversity doesn’t bring different people together harmoniously. All it has brought is tension, conflict, and hostility between different people. And contrary to what they want to believe, it is not the fault of White people.

      • anony

        Separation is the only answer.

        We should frequently remind these blacks that they have the choice to move to an all-black country if they hate us so much.

        We, on the other hand, don’t have that choice.

  • anony

    By the way Charlie, we wish we had won the War For Southern Independence.

    • Blackhawk

      Yes. It would have been a nice boat ride for Charlie’s ancestors back to the motherland.

      • bilderbuster

        Charlie would never have been born due to miscegenation laws.

        • none of your business

          Looking at blacks it is obvious that those laws were ignored by White men. What is Holder; 15/16 White?

          • bilderbuster

            I was referring to the time of slavery.
            Just because miscegenation sometimes happened you can hardly say those laws were ignored by White men.
            Murder happens but it doesn’t mean people ignore the laws against murder.

    • none of your business

      As a northerner I also wish the good guys had won. On the other hand, descended from some of the founders of Frankfort Kentucky, I might still be there in an area full of blacks. Yuck

  • As if Andrew Cuomo is actually in any danger of not winning. Sure, things like the (Un)SAFE Act have hurt him. Which means he’ll only win this year by 20 points, instead of the 30 points he won by four years ago. Which is like two wolves and a lamb voting on supper instead of three wolves and a lamb.

    Charlie Rangel is obviously insane in his statement, but he might have a point about slavery not being over in essence. Slavery still exists; it goes by the name “unpaid internships” these days.

    • ShermanTMcCoy

      It certainly exists in many non-white parts of the world.

    • me

      Nope. White slave taxation to feed Rangel’s ‘people’ is the only form of slavery in this country. Wage slave taxation IS real, and Rangel endorses White slave taxation. He wants ‘Whitey’ to shut up about Negro dysfunction and racial hostility and keep footing the bill for Negro insanity. Funny Negro politicians never mention all of the blood spilled by Whites in the Civil War, over ancestors that were probably NOT his ancestors–most Negroes in this country are NOT descendants of slaves. It’s just another LIE for the ‘gibs me dat’.

      • John Barleycorn

        God works in mysterious ways . .
        If slavery had never existed in the new world,
        the vast majority of American blacks would have never been born.
        It seems there should be a thank you somewhere in the dialog ..

    • none of your business

      What about “salaried executives” working 75 hours a week for 40 hours salary?

  • MekongDelta69

    It must be nice to be senile.

    You can think, say, or do anything you want, and only people who are more demented than you are, will actually believe your rantings.

    • donkeypunch

      Did you mean it’s nice to be black ?

      • MekongDelta69

        And the difference is…?

        “Hmm… I’m gonna go with ‘zip, zero, nada’ for a Thousand Alex.”

        • Chinese Nationalist Maiden

          People who defend Blacks seem to reduce their average IQ to that of Blacks. Hence the insanity.

  • dd121

    If slavery existed and I owned Rangel, I’d put him on a boat back to Africa straight away. Bad for business.

    • donkeypunch

      If blacks can get reparations, can whites get refunds ?

      • dd121

        Absolutely not! All YT can do is keep paying and keep apologizing.

      • Chinese Nationalist Maiden

        If Blacks deserved anything, they would be your equals. They aren’t.

        • donkeypunch

          True, but I still want my refund.

    • 48224

      Good one. Rangel straightens his hair….because he’s racist. Don’t want black hair.

    • bilderbuster

      I’d drop him off 10 miles out and then tell him he has to swim the rest of the way.

  • Frank_DeScushin

    “Everything we believe in–everything we believe in–they hate.”

    If I were to do some psychoanalysis, Charlie’s statement appears to be a clear case of projection. What Charlie is really thinking is: “Everything whites believe in — everything whites believe in — we blacks hate.”

    • Alexandra1973

      I hate rioting, looting, and being an all-around nuisance, if that’s what he’s talking about.

      • Chinese Nationalist Maiden

        Blacks are nuissance wherever they go. They destroy and hate what others have built. Whites, however, contribute something to the world.

  • LHathaway

    Rangel is quite correct.

    ” Everything we believe in–everything we believe in–they hate. They don’t disagree–they hate!”

    With everything else he said above sounding like so much nonsense one must assume Rangel has only reached a truth unwittingly. Perhaps Mr. Rangel is some kind of an idiot-savant.

  • mobilebay

    What is it we hate, Charlie? Black crime? Black demands? Black dependency on white for everything? Black victimology? Black ebonics? Tell us, Charlie, just what it is?

    • bilderbuster

      When it comes to Blacks, Charlie, what are we supposed to like?

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Old Charlie is right: Blacks are enslaved to the Democrat-run welfare state; Whites are enslaved to the welfare state as taxpayers.

    Hey Charlie, don’t forget to tell blacks that the Republicans were first organized as the anti-Slavery party and it was the Dems that started the K after the WBTS and later pushed and enforced Jim Crow laws.

    Don’t forget to tell blacks that you support wide-open borders so Hispanics can replace blacks in the workforce, push them out of their historic rioting areas, and compete with them for government entitlements.

    USA Numbers over all career grade, Charlie Rangel = F-

    Look for plenty more of this type of scare mongering over the weekend as the election looms closer and Dims like Rangel become desperate.

    • journey

      Old Rangel would have fit nicely in Africa – corruption and greed – same gene pool, just a different location.

    • Breaker Morant

      “Old Charlie.” That is an old name for the devil.

  • They are part right. It is very much alive and thriving in places like Saudi Arabia, every other African country, many counties in Asia, but as for a thriving trade in the States no so much, white man ended it.

  • journey

    Rangel another eternal parasite of this country. It appeared he started out okay by serving in the armed forces for this country. But greed and corruption got the best of him. So, another black stuck in a time warp mentality because he has nothing else to offer.

    • none of your business

      He was drafted and did not have the guts to run.

  • Race baiting Rangel–at his age he’ll be dead soon and another monument to a black “hero” will be erected somewhere. In a just world, this buffoon would be in prison.

    • none of your business

      Huckabee pontificates in that awful preacher voice that Republicans want to offer blacks the opportunity to compete with illegals in the race to bottom level wages.

  • JustJeff

    Ha I can already picture some kosher conservative squirming and saying the republicans freed the slaves.

    • IstvanIN

      You listen to Hush?

      • JustJeff

        No who’re they?

        • IstvanIN

          Rush Limbaugh says that all the time.

  • TruthBeTold

    Mr. Rangel, like all liberals, attributes the ideas in his head to others.

  • IstvanIN

    Andrew Cuomo has run a very dirty campaign, incredible mud-slinging. Not only is he a crook he is as about as anti-America as his father, no wonder Rangel supports him.

    • PvtCharlieSlate

      You really have to be a low-life for a Kennedy to divorce you.

      BTW, has anyone ever seen a photo of the Spawn-of-Mario where he doesn’t look like he has been off his meds for six weeks?

      • He definitely comes across as a special sort of demented. I remember last year he screamed from some podium really passionately about killing deer. I think it was for his precious UnSAFE Act. Okay, wacko bird. Maybe YOU need a SAFE Act, someone should put some distance between you and all the sharp objects.

  • Alexandra1973

    Slavery isn’t over in Africa.

    • Chinese Nationalist Maiden

      Liberals should fix that before whining about evil Whitey. Or better, they should immigrate to Africa and never come back.

  • Peter Connor

    It isn’t over. Check out Africa, the middle east, parts of Asia, and eastern Europe. Slaves everywhere.

    • Itooktheredpill

      There are slaves in eastern Europe? You mind pointing out where exactly?

      • Peter Connor

        The sex slave trade runs through much of eastern Europe, where they end up doesn’t matter.

        • anony

          The sex slave trade is alive and well in North America.

          • none of your business

            Heavily Asian immigrant which may be why Englemann loves Asian immigrants so much. San Francisco has an Asian mostly Chinese mafia massage parlor in practically every block. Also emaciated Chinese men working as slaves in the illegal chicken slaughter houses located in garages all over the Sunset, Richmond and even Bayside formerly a black neighborhood.

        • bilderbuster

          That’s because it’s run from Tel Aviv.

          • meanqueen

            By Russian non-Jews.

          • bilderbuster

            No it’s run by Jews.
            There’s no such thing as a Russian Jew, only a Jew who was born or lives in Russia.
            Therefore all Russians are non-Jews.
            A Black who is born or lives in China will never be Chinese either.

          • meanqueen

            Here, let’s start your education: there are numerous non Jewish Russians who immigrated to Israel over the past few decades, presumably because they had a Jewish grandparent. They used the law of return to get out of Russia and go to Israel, where they thought they would have a better life. Russians within Israel are at the forefront of sex trafficking, and the victims are Russian women lured to Israel with the promise of jobs.

          • bilderbuster

            Of course.
            How foolish of me to think that Jews in Israel or Russia would ever do such an evil thing after their stellar behavior in Eastern Europe during the preceding centuries and especially under the communist yolk.
            Once again they have been slandered by anti-Semites.

  • archer

    We are all on the plantation today.

  • disqus_irCdmAu8It

    The Democrats hate the USA. The Democrats are a Hate Group. The Democrats are waging War on Women, and a War on Whites. The Democrat Parties of Georgia and North Carolina have sent out flyers warning Blacks about the dangers of the Republicans winning control of the Senate overlaid with photos of Blacks being lynched. Yet, the most recent member of the KKK in the US Senate was a Democrat, Robert Byrd of WVA. The Dem Haters ignore this. As does the main stream media.

    • bilderbuster

      If there was a real KKK (as opposed to the FBI operatives who call themselves the Klan) they would have been protesting Byrd and his policies instead of ignoring him also.

  • alsatian

    One would think that blacks of even minimal intelligence would be embarrassed by the cretinous pronouncements of such luminaries as Al Sharpton and Charley Rangel, men whose IQs clearly barely exceed their hat sizes. These are black “spokesmen”?

    • Kenner

      Remember where ‘blacks of minimal intelligence’ are on the bell curve.

  • WR_the_realist

    The hate is clearly coming from Rangel himself and innumerable other members of the Democratic Party. The Diversity Party does more hating than the Republicans could ever do.

  • Lion’s Mane

    Just the ravings of a crazed and bigoted liberal demagogue. (Yawn.) So what else is new?

  • StillModerated

    Maybe the GOP should listen to this loudmouthed imbecile. They should campaign on freeing the slaves, and then sending them back to free cities such as Ouagadougou, Timbuktu, Yamousoukro, Kinshasa, N’Djamena and other places like Detroit.

  • A Freespeechzone

    Rangel must feel like a slave to paying his taxes—something he cheats on and hasn’t paid.

    Notice he gets away with not paying?

  • Fed Up

    Charlie Rangel appears to have some severe mental health issues. Either that or he’s scared that the Democrats will get their heads served to them on a platter Tuesday. But that’s always the case. Liberals cannot accept the reality that BLACKS are the reason they can’t get jobs — I mean sans even a decent high school education — what can they reasonably be expected to do? Slavery? Gimme a break. Slavery was an inefficient, comparatively worthless institution that would not have survived 1901. Why? Because you constantly had to supervise and watch slaves. A standing militia readily available was needed — in case of slave uprisings. Because free [White] workers could not compete with slave labor.

    But as I often point out — LIBERALS have a serious problem with the truth. Unless in extremely rare instances, truth actually favors the liberal ideology.

    • LHathaway

      So true.

  • DiversityIsDeath

    Whitey has to watch every word he says, but this ignorant negro crook can publicly babble whatever nonsense and lies he wants to without being held to account. I blame the Republicans for ALLOWING Rangel to get away with telling lies about them. They are all cowardly White men who are scared of him.

  • Cid Campeador

    Don’t give one second of attention to anything that comes out of the mouth of that Horse’s Ass. He’s not even Black.
    Rangel pronouned like Rahn Hell is Hispanic and I’d wager that he’s a mixed race Dominican posing as a BRUVAH.

  • MBlanc46

    I’m not a Repub, but I probably do hate just about everything that Charlie Wrangel believes in.

  • rentslave

    EBT is the new slavery!

  • rentslave

    Billy Joel was right that only the good die young.


    “Everything we believe in–they hate.”

    That’s because you have been trying to replace what works with what sounds good, i.e., capitalism with the welfare state.

    Engleman gets his “research” about the Republican party from Rangel and Sharpton.
