Charlie Rangel Says Obama’s Critics Come From “Slaveholder States”

Congressman Charlie Rangel (D-NY) is embattled in a political race that could end his Moment of Silencecareer, but that doesn’t mean he’s playing it safe. Even though the outspoken 84 year old lawmaker is trailing his primary challenger, state Sen. Adriano Espaillat, Rangel is still as blunt as ever when discussing President Obama’s critics.

When MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt asked Rangel if  Republican opposition to Obama is “based on race,” Rangel didn’t bιte his tongue.

“You know, that’s a subjective question. But, let me say this: Are most of the states that they represent, are they in the Confederate states that fought the Union? Were they slaveholder states? And when they come to Washington, do you see more Confederate flags than American flags?”

Rangel also said that some Republicans are willing to cυt off their nose to spite their face, so to speak. Meaning they will hυrt themselves and their constituents so long as they hυrt Obama’s agenda as well.

“Who would hυrt their own people — in terms of cυtting off health, job opportunity, food stamps — to get after this president? It takes a lot of hatred to hurt yourself just to embarrass the president. So, I’m trying to think with the tea party — and basically what they have said and what their spokespeople have said — this would not be the same if the president was not of color,” he explained.

Sen. Jay Rockefeller has also previously speculated that race plays a role in the GOP’s opposition to the Affordable Care Act.

  1. Randel is absolutely right.
    Much of the criticism against President Obaba comes from a racist position. This is definitely true for the Southren states. The x Confederate states.

  2. This is also true for non-slave states like Utah, Wyoming, Montana, north Dakota, South Dakota, Missouri, Kansas, etc. So there goes this stupid theory. Most Obama’s support comes from ex-slave states Maryland, Delaware and Washington DC. See how stupid one would be if you listen to theses people.

  4. The truth has fire to its tail.Tell it like it Really is no matter who it hurts.All these people who have marinated in European hatred of their MOTHER AFRICANS have to die out for racism to ever be unknown in the so called United States Of Slave Holding America.Africans are like Cockeroches they will be here when all the Devils are gone.

  5. Everything Rangel said is true; who really care about west, He is a token of the kardaseans and slave mentality from the days of willie lynch. The south is still fighting the civil war, I live in TN and know this to be true for a fact. People don't like to admit it, but a southern good ole boy from Florida (MOJOe) talks about President Obama 5 days a week and has his tokens on there to discuss the issue and Phil Griffin will not do anything about it. RACISM is thriving in America and many of you know it, but deny it constantly.
