Charlie Rangel must have been worshiping at a shrine of the Shroud of Trayvon Martin, the hoodie that the Smithsonian now wants to display. Rangel called the Tea Party a bunch of ′white crackers′ during an interview with The Daily Beast. ″It is the same group we faced in the South with those white crackers and the dogs and the police.″, said Rangel. Of course, Rangel is wrong, since the Tea Party is all about individual freedom, something the Congressman knows nothing about. Like all Liberal Democrats, Rangel is all about making government larger and more powerful. One has to wonder about Peter King, another New York state Congressman, who now appears to be pals with Charles Rangel concerning their both supporting the NSA domestic spying of American citizens.
