Rangel gets racial: Tea party a bunch of ‘white crackers’

- The Washington Times - Saturday, August 3, 2013

New York Rep. Charlie Rangel wants the world to know: Tea party members are a bunch of "white crackers."

"It is the same group we faced in the South with those white crackers and the dogs and the police," Mr. Rangel told the Daily Beast.

"They didn't care about how they looked. It was just fierce indifference to human life that caused America to say enough is enough."

House Republicans didn't get off any easier.

The congressman likened them to terrorists: "What's going on is sabotage. Terrorists couldn't do a better job than the Republicans are doing."
