Always amusing, Congressman Charles Rangel (D-NY) is as colorful as San Francisco’s Willie Brown, but when it comes to racism, Rangel is a race-baiter. His latest pronouncements on MSNBC claimed that “some of the southern areas have cultures that we have to overcome when it comes to gun control.” and “New York is a little different and more progressive in a lot of areas than some other states and some of the southern areas have cultures that we have to overcome.” are simply misdirection from the real gun violence problems facing America.
The corrupt racist is excoriating the South while ignoring the democrat-led inner cities in Chicago, Detroit, Oakland, Compton, Philadelphia, New York and elsewhere. Where most of the crime originates from drugs and gangs. Yes, the KKK may have been White (and democrat) but has Rangel ever heard of the Black Crips and Bloods? Or the notorious MS-13 (Mara Salvatrucha) gang? Both heavily-armed, into protecting turf and drug-dealing, and totally vicious when it comes to shooting opponents. With little or no thought given to innocent bystanders caught in the crossfire.
Bottom line …
Race-baiting socialists like Charlie Rangel will do or say anything, including disarming a law-abiding American public, to avoid dealing with the issues of systemic inner city problems and the minority crime which results in most gun deaths.
