Rangel: Tea Party Does Not ‘Believe the Union Won’ Civil War

By J.M. Rieger – Via Rollcall-
During the Congressional Black Caucus’ special order hour on the House floor Monday night, Rep. Charles B. Rangel hammered the tea party not only for embracing the Confederate flag, but also for hating President Barack Obama “as much as their [Dixiecrat] predecessors probably hated Abe Lincoln.”

“[In] some parts of the United States of America they don’t believe that the Union won. The reason I come to that conclusion is that … I have never seen so many Confederate flags that represent groups that are proud of the fact that they call themselves the Tea Party,” the New York Democrat said during his 10-minute floor speech, referring to an event he attended with President Ulysses S. Grant’s great-great-grandson. “They’re from that part of the country that the states owned slaves.”

Rangel, the second most senior member of the Congressional Black Caucus, has pushed the White House to do more to combat poverty and inequality. The Senate recently passed an extension of unemployment benefits and there are new signs the House may take up legislation on an immigration overhaul.

  3. And Jay Z is a hero

    As he intentionally wore a Five Percent Nation medallion, court side, to a basketball game, for all the world to see

    The medallion represents hatred and racism towards white people

    But yet Jay Z remains part owner in the Nets???

    Double standard?

  4. He equates Union “victory” with total socialist conquest .
