Charlie Rangel is Right – Slavery is Alive and Well… but in the Democrat Party!

Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) attacked the Republican Party during a campaign rally for New York Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Rangel is adept at playing the race card. He doesn’t have any other card in his deck. He compared some members of the GOP to confederates from the Civil War era. To top it off, at the Cuomo event, he said that Republicans “believe that slavery isn’t over.”

Here’s what he said:

We have to win. We have to be able to send a national message with Andrew Cuomo. And the thing is: Everything we believe in— everything we believe in — they hate. They don’t disagree— they hate! They think if you didn’t come from Europe 30 years ago, you didn’t even make it. Some of them believe that slavery isn’t over and they and think they won the Civil War!

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas had left the racial reservation a long time ago. For Democrats, especially black Democrats, such a move is viewed as political treason. He’s been called an “Uncle Tom.” He’s not the only one. Al Gore’s campaign manager Donna Brazile called Colin Powell an “Uncle Tom” because of his support for George Bush. Here’s a headline from the Daily Kos: “Uncle Tom Powell Stumps for Massah Bush.”

Here’s one from Harry Belafonte:

In the days of slavery, there were those slaves who lived on the plantation and [there] were those slaves that lived in the house. You got the privilege of living in the house if you served the master … exactly the way the master intended to have you serve him. Colin Powell’s committed to come into the house of the master. When Colin Powell dares to suggest something other than what the master wants to hear, he will be turned back out to pasture.

Belafonte is describing the Democrat Party! The masters are Democrats, and don’t you dare say a word against the Democrat Plantation and those who run it or you will hunted down…
