    Charlie Rangel: Tea Party Is ‘Same Group’ Of ‘White Crackers’ Who Fought Civil Rights
    http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.co...-same-group-of

    In an interview with the Daily Beast published Friday, Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) suggested 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," Rangel said.

    Because of this, Rangel said the Tea Party could be defeated using the same tactics employed against Jim Crow.

    "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,” said Rangel.

    No, Charlie. The Tea Partyers are Republicans. The groups that you're talking about were Democrats. You know, like the guy that you used to hang around with in Congress, Bobby Byrd (D-KKK). Republicans are the party that opposed them. Now stop making a fool of yourself and try to get your taxes straight this year.

    Do you think he used the word "cracker" or "cracka"? And does this mean Tea Party conservatives are all cops, security guards, or we look that way?

    Well, according to Precious, cracker isn't a racial slur.
