Michele Bachmann wants Charlie Rangel to apologize for "white crackers" comment

bachrangel560.jpg
According to Rangel, Bachmann and her ilk are like "white crackers."
Michele Bachmann is involved in a story about an allegedly outrageous statement, but here's the twist -- for once, she's not the one who uttered it.

Bachmann has demanded an apology from Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.), who, in a recent interview with the Daily Beast, said that tea partiers are part of "the same group" of "white crackers" who fought against Civil Rights back in the 1950s and '60s.

"It is the same group we faced in the South with those white crackers and the dogs and the police," Rangel said. "They didn't care about how they looked. 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."

Here's how Bachmann responded: Rangel hasn't yet responded to Bachmann's demand. But if he wants to take a page out of her playbook, the 83-year-old could just run away from reporters when they ask him questions about his comments.

Hate to be a nit picker but {"It is the same group we faced in the South with those white crackers and the dogs and the police," Rangel said}.  But this is a comparison, sorta like when republicans are always comparing Obama to a Nazi or a socialist.

He is a loser. He should be flipping burgers at mcdonalds. He has been leaching off the tax payer (white crackers) long enough. I'd personally like to slap his fuc&ing face with my white cracker fist. LOL.....

Crazy Shelly needs to apologize first for all the crap she has said about the LGBT community over the years.

Rangel's remark was Bachmannesque, which is quite the insult.  He should be embarrassed to at the very least differentiate himself from her.

@atrupar Why don't you stop injecting your own personal views on Bachmann and just report the news. That last sentence is completely unnecessary and just unintentionally (at least I hope and am giving you the benefit of the doubt) defends his racist and uneducated point of view. Just report the news please.

I agree with Charlie on this one and she won't be getting an apology from me. She's one cray cray cracker.

For what? Many of YOU Tea Party freaks ARE crackers. You are scared of everything or rageful at most things. You think "white people" should THINK like you, and resent those who do not.

Bachmann is scum. Cleaned up, cracker, scum.

@bigdeal Why should he apologize? African Americans have been given the green light by white-guilt Liberals to not only be racist against white people, but any other race or culture for that matter. Take a look at the Trayvon Martin case. Zimmerman never used one single racial slur during that incident (well, at least not on the 911 recording anyway), yet it was socially acceptable when Trayvon called called Zimmerman a "crazy-ass cracker" when he was on the phone with that sow witness. Now, imagine if Zimmerman was heard saying something to the effect, "I'm following this n****r and he looks like trouble", Zimmerman would have been charged with a hate crime, he would have been found guilty, and would probably be on death row right now, even if the facts in the trial proved that he was acting in self defense. 

Welcome to the New America. The New America is the only place where when a brown guy kills a black guy, a white guy is blamed for it. Get used to it. The Liberals in this nation wanted this; they voted for this; and now they have this. Expect the race-baiting to continue. And not only will the Liberal population accept this, they will embrace it. 

The War on the White Man has only just begun. But here is the question: If the White Man is expected to tolerate not only racism against their own, but also acts of violence against them with no means to defend themselves (after all, Liberals, including Obama, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson want to abolish the SYG laws), who is going to pay all of the taxes when there are no white men left?

After all, according to the Liberals, the 1% are 99% white men. So if that is the case, then:

What's going to happen to this country when they are all gone?

@bigdeal  Probably only half as much as the guy who has to find validation in his otherwise pointless life by trolling website comment boards to try and feel superior, even though he's hiding behind an anonymous avatar and not really having to face anyone with his ignorant views.  Don't you just hate those people?

@yoopie93 @nobig @Drewey who's racist? i find rangel's remarks to be offensive. politicians need to lead by example. he's just race-baiting. how can blacks and whites learn to love eachother with people making statements like his? I'm sorry you feel bad for being who you are, but his remarks are just plain wrong.

@nobig @yoopie93 @Drewey   No, you're not very complicated at all, are you special ed?  Do you get called cracker a lot in your cozy suburb?  Do you find that you are much maligned for being a white male in society?  I know it's rough, man.  I pray that you can make it day by day.  When is the white man going to get a fair shake in today's society?!  It's time for a march on Washington--the Million Mongoloid March.  Now you just need 999,999 more racist idiots, and you're all set!

@nobig @yoopie93 @Drewey   Wow, you made a literary reference, special ed!  That's so adult of you.  And how surprising that you referenced a book that was written for children!  You must have really enjoyed Harry Potter when your caregiver read it to you.  I'm not going to argue that you are a race-baiting, hypocritical idiot--do you know why?  Because I don't have to.  Everyone here can see that.  Because they are smarter than you.  Because the average pile of dog shit on the ground is smarter than you.  But by all means, keep on commenting here.  I'm sure someone will see through your idiocy and believe what you say.  Right?

@yoopie93 @nobig @Drewey I have never any sort of race baiting, life decrying message anywhere. Your reading comprehension needs work. I simply state that it's a double standard. And the word is nigger, not "the n-word." This isn't harry potter, and the word nigger is not voldemort.

@nobig @Drewey   Yes, special ed, you figured it out.  That's why he called you a bigot.  Not because you used the N-word above, or because you constantly leave race-baiting messages which decry how life is so very hard for the white man in society.  Nope, it's because you don't like being called a cracker.  Wow.  You are a true marvel of science.  You are somehow capable enough to know how to use a computer, but you keep demonstrating that you have less wit than a block of wood.

But it's retards like you that actually further the promotion of negro sub-humanity to this day. If you actually are as un-racist as you say, you'd be all about NOT giving special privileges to one race, especially as those privileges make one race less human. I've got an idea: ask a black person who has a decent job what they think of social welfare programs. Afterall, what do stupid suburban white dudes know about black people anyway?

@Drewey @nobig @yoopie93 @bigdeal   @Drewey, it's a good point, but you're wasting your time arguing with a mongoloid like @bigdeal.  He's too busy trolling this site and trying desperately to get people--anyone, really--to notice him, that your words will go over his head.  You're better off just patting him on his head, telling him that they're serving graham crackers and juice for all the special ed kids right now, and watch him run off excitedly with his mittens in tow.  You can't use logic and intellect to argue against a guy who uses a dictionary to read his new copy of Highlights magazine each month.  Eventually he'll get tired and go take his nap. leaving more space here for smart people to leave comments.

@nobig @yoopie93 @bigdeal What you call a double standard, I call an opportunity for a history lesson.  It's important for those that 100 years ago would be wearing a white hood over their face such as yourself to understand what it feels like to be made to feel less than.  Although it pales in comparison at least it's a taste.  It's always a bigot bitching about reverse racism, why is that?

@yoopie93 @bigdeal Because yoopie is your real name? unlike you, i have a reason to comment. I'm contributing my personal pov and pointing out the stupid double standard that lets a black guy use a racial slur with impunity. that's bullshit. If a politician said nigger there would literally be a riot in the streets.

@kennyX @Drewey

I think I would rather reply to this message which you posted before the one above and then quickly deleted: Drewey Like I said. The White Guilt Liberal mindset will only prove to be their own downfall. You just proved my point succinctly: You Can't Fix Stupid. Liberals are not very smart. African Americans are oppressed not by the color of their skin, but rather by their sub-human degenerate behavior. Until THAT changes, there will always be racism against them. And as long as people like YOU who apologize for them and make excuses, NOTHING WILL CHANGE. And one more thing: Zimmerman brought a gun because a sub-human wanna-be ghetto thug who thought he was "tough", and learned the hard way that if you fuck with an armed victim, your ass will be shot dead. And that was the final lesson that he learned...............END OF FUCKING STORY.  

What racist bigots such as yourself are incapable of understanding is that it does not require guilt to treat people with respect and compassion.  It requires a simple understanding that in America, all people are equal.  People like you hate America, you hate the concept of equality, you hate that you don't get it.  Just because you are king turd on shit mountain doesn't mean you are smart.  In the real world, you are a sham, a regurgitator of lies and half truths, you are a punch line and your too clueless to see that the joke is on you.

The link I posted clearly shows who is picking and chosing facts. And color me skeptical when a proven racist such as yourself starts bitching about reverse racism by the African American community. When you have been systematically oppressed for a couple hundred years by black people and then struggle to trust them we can have a conversation. As for the travon Martin story, what i find appalling is the legalization of bringing a gun to a fist fight. Nothing better illustrates laws created by the stupid and scared.

@Drewey Misinformed? The IRS is misinformed? But how can they be? After all, they targeted Tea Party fundraising campaigns during the last election. How can they be wrong? Oh I get it. You are a typical Liberal who picks and chooses your facts. Oh and speaking of misinformed bullshit, and since this blog was about racism, here is a classic example of misinformed bullshit: 

http://walshfreedom.com/2013/07/the-6-most-disturbing-reactions-to-the-zimmerman-trial-and-verdict/

And let let me guess, you agree with all of them.
