Charles Rangel: Racist poverty pimp
Suppose you hired someone to do a job. Suppose you gave them 35 years and access to considerable funding.

What if, after 35 years the job still wasn't done? What if every time someone tried to talk about it this person yelled "Look, over there, racists!"
Rangel's 'Revolution'

"Comparing President Bush to the Birmingham, Ala., police commissioner whose resistance to the civil rights movement became synonymous with Southern racism, Rep. Charles Rangel said yesterday of the president: 'George Bush is our Bull Connor,' " the New York Sun reports from Washington:

Mr. Rangel's metaphoric linkage of Mr. Bush to the late Theophilus "Bull" Connor--who in 1963 turned fire hoses and attack dogs on blacks, including Martin Luther King Jr., demonstrating in favor of equal rights--met with wild applause and cheering at a Congressional Black Caucus town hall meeting, part of the organization's 35th Annual Legislative Conference. . . .

...

If after 40 years blacks remain disproportionately poor and alienated from American society, surely it is time to ask if this approach has been a failure.

Would you fire him? Yeah, so would I. Explain why Harlem looks the way it does, Mr. Rangel. Explain why the people you represent aren't any better off now than they were when you started 35 years ago. You've been their representative in Congress for a generation. Can we say "incompetent"? And that's the kindest thing we can say about Mr. Rangel.

Update: Project 21 is taking Rangel to task:
"Charles Rangel's comments are morally vacant and beneath the pale, but obviously not out of character for him and his supporters," said Project 21 member Mychal Massie. "How many blacks today suffer from beatings, fire hoses or have dogs set on them for trying to seek a seat at a lunch counter or go to school? How many of us today are living under inflexible, legislated segregation?"

Massie adds: "Rangel's comments may play well with those who embrace ignorance, but it will not resonate with Americans who eschew racial demagoguery. We demand that the CBC and Senator Clinton join with this overwhelming majority of their fellow citizens in banishing hate speech such as this to the trash heap of history."

...

"I'd be interested in viewing any footage Congressman Rangel has of our President turning fire hoses on black Americans," said Project 21 member Kevin Martin. "While the differences between George W. Bush and Bull Connor begin superficially with the fact that Connor was a Democrat, it's more important to note that President Bush has the most racially diverse administration in presidential history, and these appointees serve in some of the highest positions. If Congressman Rangel is referring to policy, I fail to see how trying to give everyone the ability to make their own choices on things like retirement security, medical care and education, not be burdened by taxes and be safe at home and abroad is akin to enforcing a separation of the races."

I generally forget to add Rangel's name to the list of "Failed Black Tom's" when I think about the Left's favored plantation negroes. Rangel, Jackson, Sharpton, Young; so many who could have focused our people (yes, Leftardia, topi is black. on equality and mental freedom rather than the Cult of Victimhood fiasco that now passes for DNC wisdom. I am not arguing that the RNC has done anywhere near all that it could have for Blacks, but dang, the Democrats have merely changed their civil war goals and have managed to keep most Blacks in mental slavery.

That brings up the really good question of why the Republicans aren't trying to capitalize on this. You would think that after this long with little results and with the democrats getting further and further from the mainstreem, black Americans would be open to a real outreach, yet I see very little.

I've talked to a number of higher-ranking Republicans, many of whom feel that it "isn't their place" to tell blacks (or hispanics) what to think and that the leadership should come from within those communities.

I think that is shortsighted. People have to know the truth and get help from national organizations like the party in order to make effective changes.

I'd love to see a "truth about Republicans" campaign on college campuses to recruit leaders for the next generation.

A Random Reagan Quote

"We've done our part. And as I walk off into the city streets, a final word to the men and women of the Reagan revolution, the men and women across America who for 8 years did the work that brought America back. My friends: We did it. We weren't just marking time. We made a difference. We made the city stronger, we made the city freer, and we left her in good hands. All in all, not bad, not bad at all."
