Rangel: Must Overcome Culture

rangelculturecomment
Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.), speaking on “MSNBC Live” on Jan. 16 said that “some of the southern areas have cultures that we have to overcome” when it comes to gun control.

Rangel was asked by anchor Thomas Roberts whether new gun control measures passed in New York State should serve as models for other states:

“If you’re proud of what New York has done, obviously there is not going to be any perfect policy or perfect law that everybody is going to agree on from both sides saying that this is key perfection but do you think that New York, and what has been done in this state, could be used as a role model for other states that would like to enact something of New York’s model?”

Rangel responded by saying: “Well I hope so. 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.”

When did it become the government’s job to decide what culture needs to be overcome or left standing?

    Rangel needs to keep his mouth shut about the South and its traditions.

    Let’s see…….New York is Charlie’s area……I guess that they probably have no gun crimes at all, with Charlie and all that “Northern Culture,” living there.

    Wow…..After all, if I remember correctly, New York is in the NORTH…..isn’t it….and we all know how important it is for THE NORTH to constantly tell SOUTHERNERS what they should or shouldn’t do, and at the same time…..they are refusing to look in their own mirrors while keeping their ever busybody noses into everyone elses business.

    Just as the TERRORISTS are at war with us and the CULTURE in WASHINGTON denies it. So as WE THE PEOPE are denying that the WASHINGTON CULTURE is at WAR with us.

    These people are DOMESTIC ENEMIES and I sure hope we confront them before they exterminate us (DEMOCIDE). The last generation that knows and remembers what our GOD GIVEN RIGHTS ARE.

    Do not deny the occupant in the PEOPLES HOUSE is a devout MARXIST!!

    We are the LAST of the checks and balances since the corruption flows right through their veins. After Roberts found MENGELE CARE to be constitutional I have given up on our last vestige of hope.

    Wiliing consent denied!!
