Rangel Uses 'Disabled' to Belittle and Dismiss - Like 'Nigger'

Photo: Rangel during CBS interview

Charles Rangel, (Liberal-D) Manhattan U.S. Congressman, tried to belittle, disparage, depreciate, discount, minimize, and otherwise insult Gov. Sarah Palin in a CBS interview today (text and video).

The Liberal Democrat said that Sarah Palin is disabled and
"Ya got to be kind to the disabled."
She will not be touched by the ham-fisted wielding of the word "disabled".


I am insulted because I am disabled. I am a cripple, one of millions in this nation and around the world. To use "disabled" to diminish Mrs. Palin is to diminish me and those millions. "Disabled" should not be used to put down anyone anymore than "nigger" should be used.

Rep. Rangel thought he would disarm Mrs. Palin by calling her "disabled." Perhaps he meant to say Sarah Palin was genetically inferior because her infant son, Trig, has Down's Syndrome. That's equally loathsome. But he has only angered millions of disabled individuals and made a fool of himself.

I am crippled, but I am not a walking insult to society. I contribute to the society, the country, the nation, and the world. Five days a week, I get out of bed, go to work, produce goods and services, and pay taxes. Millions of other disabled, crippled, and challenged people do the same. Everyday.

Everyday, we get up to be stared at, pointed at, to hear the rude whispered comments, and the crude comments not whispered, to be treated as objects of curiosity. And then there's the incessant acts of kindness.

We are too often passed over for many work assignments (if we're lucky enough to have jobs), denied promotions and pay increases, restricted from many jobs and careers, overlooked as life partners and mates. When we stand our ground as people of dignity against the slings and arrows, we're said to be rude, arrogant, demanding, ill-mannered, ungrateful... we don't know our place. In short, uppity.

Charles Rangel said Sarah Palin was "disabled" in a manner denoting pity. The pity itself is dismissive. It means that I am not like normal people. And let's not kid ourselves, we all know what normal is. Mr Rangel spoke in a disrespectful manner reserved for anyone or anything thought to be beneath us, those held in contempt. His words said disabled people are beneath him, worthy only of contempt and easily dismissed.

Disabled people are not beneath anyone. Least of all, Charles Rangel, (D-Manhattan) U.S. Representative.

We are not three-fifths of a person and two-fifths beast. We are not house niggers to be recognized only when drinks need to be served. We are not cockroaches to be sprayed with Zyklon-B. We are not animals or pets to be put to sleep. We are not things to be ignored or thrown in the trash. We are not an insult to be used to denigrate others. We are human beings to be addressed with respect and dignity as any other person expects to be addressed.

It pains me to print Rangel's words here, but everyone needs to know the bigot that is Rep Charles Rangel, D-Manhattan (
NEW YORK (CBS) ― Already under fire for his tax troubles, Manhattan Congressman Charles Rangel really put his foot in his mouth on Friday.

In a CBS 2 HD exclusive interview, Rep. Rangel called Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin "disabled."

The question was simple: Why are the Democrats so afraid of Palin and her popularity?

The answer was astonishing.

"You got to be kind to the disabled," Rangel said.

That's right. The chairman of the powerful House Ways & Means Committee called Palin disabled -- even when CBS 2 HD called him on it.

CBS 2 HD: "You got to be kind to the disabled?"

Rangel: "Yes."

CBS 2 HD: "She's disabled?"

Rangel: "There's no question about it politically. It's a nightmare to think that a person's foreign policy is based on their ability to look at Russia from where they live.

Republicans think Rangel's comments are insulting as well as shocking.

"Charlie Rangel's comments are clearly disgraceful," Rep. Peter King, R-Long Island, said. "This is just another liberal Democrat who can't accept an independent woman running for president."

King, who is co-chair of the McCain-Palin campaign in New York, watched Rangel's comments with CBS 2 HD. He was particularly upset because Palin's 4-month-old son, Trig, is disabled. He has Down's syndrome.

"We should be sensitive to her or any woman who has a child or family member who has any affliction at all," King said. "And so to use the word disabled in the context of a female candidate for vice president who has a child who is disabled really is wrong. Charlie owes her and the entire disabled community an apology."

Advocates for the disabled are also upset.

"It makes me feel as if he's trying to put her down, trying to say she's not good for the presidency or the vice presidency," said Michael Imperiale of Disabled In Action Of Metropolitan N.Y.

"A disabled president ran this country. He was disabled. His name was Roosevelt."
...And John Kennedy, George Washington, Dwight Eisenhower, Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Jackson, Grover Cleveland, Woodrow Wilson, Ronald Reagan, and Bill Clinton. All were disabled in some way or other with bone, nerve, and muscle injuries, depression, hearing loss, combat wounds, but they all served their terms, the nation and all were contributing members of society endowed by their Creator with dignity.

Stupid, Mr. Rangel is not a disability, but you are sorely afflicted with a serious case.

Now for tonight's entertainment. A short scene from the 1980 movie about John Merrick... The Elephant Man.

Son Of Democrat State Representative IDd As Palin Email Hacker

The little piss-ant Obama operative who hacked into Gov. Palin's email has been ID'd and has been contacted by the Feds in just the last few hours.

He is David Kernell of Tennessee. From Gateway Pundit,
"The son of state Rep. Mike Kernell has been contacted by authorities in connection with a probe into the hacking of personal e-mail of vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, Kernell told The Tennessean.

Kernell, a Memphis Democrat, said his 20-year-old son David had been contacted by authorities investigating the hacking of Palin’s personal e-mail account, the newspaper reported on its Web site this afternoon.

The FBI and the Secret Service started a formal investigation Wednesday into the hacking, according to the Associated Press."
And from via Gateway Pundit,

...The story was briefly posted Wednesday to the 4chan forum where the hack first surfaced. Bloggers have connected the handle of the poster, "Rubico," to an e-mail address, and tentatively identified the owner as a college student in Tennessee.

Threat Level was unable to reach the student by phone because his number is unlisted. His father, when reached at home, said he could not talk about the matter and would have no comment. The father is a Democratic state representative in Tennessee.

Democrats are showing they will do anything to win. What a bunch of losers.

Obama Operative Hacks Sarah Palin Email

The private Yahoo e-mail account of Gov. Sarah Palin was hacked today and the contents, e-mails and addresses, were disseminated on the Internet. The Federal and State crime was originally attributed to a loose amalgam group called 'Anonymous'. But they probably didn't do it.

An individual poster, an Obama supporter, at 4chan has claimed credit after the action took an unexpected turn. Another poster contacted one the addressees about the compromised passwords and told that person to warn the Governor. Shortly thereafter, the Yahoo accounts were shutdown. Bristol Palin's private cell phone number was also listed and several calls were placed to the number.

The Obama guy calls himself rubico, Michelle Malkin has the story from one of her readers who monitors the site in question. According to the monitor, rubico left this comment at the original offending web page, /b/ (bolding is mine) :

rubico 09/17/08(Wed)12:57:22 No.85782652

Hello, /b/ as many of you might already know, last night sarah palin’s yahoo was “hacked” and caps were posted on /b/, i am the lurker who did it, and i would like to tell the story.

In the past couple days news had come to light about palin using a yahoo mail account, it was in news stories and such, a thread was started full of newfags trying to do something that would not get this off the ground, for the next 2 hours the acct was locked from password recovery presumably from all this bullshit spamming.

after the password recovery was reenabled, it took seriously 45 mins on wikipedia and google to find the info, Birthday? 15 seconds on wikipedia, zip code? well she had always been from wasilla, and it only has 2 zip codes (thanks online postal service!)

the second was somewhat harder, the question was “where did you meet your spouse?” did some research, and apparently she had eloped with mister palin after college, if youll look on some of the screenshits that I took and other fellow anon have so graciously put on photobucket you will see the google search for “palin eloped” or some such in one of the tabs.

I found out later though more research that they met at high school, so I did variations of that, high, high school, eventually hit on “Wasilla high” I promptly changed the password to popcorn and took a cold shower…

>> rubico 09/17/08(Wed)12:58:04 No.85782727

this is all verifiable if some anal /b/tard wants to think Im a troll, and there isn’t any hard proof to the contrary, but anyone who had followed the thread from the beginning to the 404 will know I probably am not, the picture I posted this topic with is the same one as the original thread.

I read though the emails… ALL OF THEM… before I posted, and what I concluded was anticlimactic, there was nothing there, nothing incriminating, nothing that would derail her campaign as I had hoped, all I saw was personal stuff, some clerical stuff from when she was governor…. And pictures of her family

I then started a topic on /b/, peeps asked for pics or gtfo and I obliged, then it started to get big

Earlier it was just some prank to me, I really wanted to get something incriminating which I was sure there would be, just like all of you anon out there that you think there was some missed opportunity of glory, well there WAS NOTHING, I read everything, every little blackberry confirmation… all the pictures, and there was nothing, and it finally set in, THIS internet was serious business, yes I was behind a proxy, only one, if this shit ever got to the FBI I was fucked, I panicked, i still wanted the stuff out there but I didn’t know how to rapidshit all that stuff, so I posted the pass on /b/, and then promptly deleted everything, and unplugged my internet and just sat there in a comatose state

Then the white knight fucker came along, and did it in for everyone, I trusted /b/ with that email password, I had gotten done what I could do well, then passed the torch , all to be let down by the douchebaggery, good job /b/, this is why we cant have nice things
Obligatorily, I am outraged by the disgraceful and criminal behavior of Obama supporters. Truth is, I'm not surprised by anything the Democrats, Liberals, Clintonistas, and Obamites do anymore. One should never be surprised that criminals without shame do shameless criminal things.

The FBI, Secret Service, and a dozen other agencies of the Federal alphabet soup are already on the case. By morning they should already have the culprit. Rubico didn't exactly try to hide, he had only one level of anonymity.

The fascinating thing here is that the Obama operative says he was looking for stuff to bring down the Palin candidacy. He read all the e-mails, all the Blackberries, looked at all the pictures and found nothing, nothing at all.

The law abiding among us are pissed because of the wanton lawbreaking by Obama operatives. The Obamites are pissed because they found nothing incriminating. Palin is clean and they can't stand it.

Sarah Palin and the Bogus Book Ban

The bogus quotes attributed to Gov. Sarah Palin have been debunked here. Another liberal canard has been forwarded around the Internet. As mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, Sarah Palin banned books - lots and lots of books.

That's the story, but it is no more true than the bogus quotes. However, this time there is a grain of truth to the story, just as there was a grain of truth to "Oliver Stone's JFK" - John Kennedy was a President and he was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. The End.

Back in 1996, the Assembly of God church in Wasilla was advocating the removal of a particular book from local bookstores. The book, "Pastor, I Am Gay" was written by Pastor Howard Bess of the Church of the Covenant in Palmer, Alaska. Sarah Palin, was a private citizen at the time, not yet mayor, and was participating in the church effort.
After her mayoral election, but before officially taking office, Palin asked the local librarian what would be her reaction if asked to remove books from the library. The librarian, Mary Ellen Emmons, said she would resist any book removal. After taking office, Palin again asked Emmons during a city council meeting how one would go about removing or banning a book. Palin says it was a rhetorical question as she was new to the job and was getting requests from constituents to ban books.

According to Anne Kilkenny, a Wasilla housewife, no specific titles were mentioned during the City Council meeting. "Palin herself, questioned at the time, called her inquiries rhetorical and simply part of a policy discussion with a department head “about understanding and following administration agendas,” according to the Frontiersman, the Wasilla newspaper.

Chairwoman of the Alaska Library Association’s Intellectual Freedom Committee, June Pinell-Stephens,has been asked if any books were actually banned. She checked the files and came up with nothing. No books were banned.

A coincidental event that has lent credence to the book ban charge was the dismissal (some say 'firing') of the librarian. Emmons was a city employee appointed by the town mayor and it is traditional for the appointees of the former administration to be dismissed by the incoming mayor. This is a common practice even up to the Presidency. The Clintons dismissed the White House travel office staff and all of the U.S. Attorneys, and the G. Bush administration dismissed some of the U.S. Attorneys.

In the case of Emmons, the librarian had supported Palin's mayoral race opponent and Palin stated in the dismissal letter that she, Palin, didn't believe Emmons was sufficiently loyal to the new mayorship. However, all dismissed appointees could reapply for their positions and many did and were hired by the Palin administration. There was a public appeal for Emmons and Palin rescinded the dismissal letter.

The list of books purportedly banned by Mayor Palin is lengthy. A commenter at seems to be the source of the book ban list. Jessamyn West, a librarian herself, quickly dismissed the list as bogus. The list of banned books is:

The inclusion of the Harry Potter books is a dead give away because J.K. Rowling had yet to write the stories of the sorcery wunderkind. The truth is the list of books is from "Books Banned in the United States - A Public Service Report from Adler & Robin Books". It is a non-comprehensive list of books that have been banned somewhere in the U.S. at some time in our history.

Sarah Palin asked about the procedure for banning books, how the librarian would respond, and NO books were banned from the public library in Wasilla by Mayor Palin nor were any books banned from public libraries in Alaska by Governor Palin. No attempts to ban books from public libraries was ever attempted by anyone in the Palin administrations.

Document Central for the City of Wasilla, provides a PDF response to the banning issue emails which they have received recently. Click “City Documents - Recently Requested - Former Mayor Palin”, then click “Banned or Censured Books Response” PDF. Quipster quotes,

We at the City of Wasilla have received many emails and requests for information about “banned or censured” books at the Wasilla Library while former Mayor Palin was in office. We have no record of any books being banned or censured ever.
Again, another bogus charge made by liberals to stir up fear over a non-issue, and event that never happened. We win, they lose, as Ronald Reagan once said.

Palin VP Qualified says Obama

Sarah Palin is qualified to be Vice President.

Don't just take my word for it. Senator Barack Obama(D-Ill), Democrat nominee for President, thinks so, too. Here's what The One had to say about the former Mayor and current Governor, "The mayors have some of the toughest jobs in the country because that's where the rubber hits the road. You know, we yak in the Senate; they actually have to fill potholes and trim trees and make sure the garbage is taken away."

Piling On Palin
By INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY Posted Monday, September 15, 2008 4:20 PM PT

Election '08: ABC's Charles Gibson does his best to prove that Gov. Sarah Palin is unqualified to be vice president. But there's no entrance exam for veep. Is she qualified? Barack Obama seems to think so.

In the best tradition of "gotcha" journalism, Gibson asked Palin in a one-on-one interview last week, "Do you agree with the Bush Doctrine?" Palin, aware of its many definitions and potential applications, replied, "In what respect, Charlie?" She was not "confused" as some have reported. She was asking for clarification of a patronizing and classically dumb question.

There are various definitions of the "Bush Doctrine" which, unlike the Monroe Doctrine, is not written down and is open to interpretation. Columnist Charles Krauthammer, who first coined the phrase, says he would define it as Bush's post 9/11 aim of fighting terror by draining the swamp and replacing tyranny with democracy.

Gibson then seemed to scold her like a professor lecturing a student, saying it meant "anticipatory self-defense" or pre-emption in a tone he would not use on Biden or Obama.

We prefer to think it means, as President Reagan so eloquently put it, "We win. They lose."

However defined, it is infinitely better, and safer than the Obama Doctrine: "Can we talk?"

Palin supports the admission of Georgia and Ukraine into NATO, which prompted Gibson to breathlessly ask: "And under the NATO treaty, wouldn't we then have to go to war if Russia went into Georgia?" Yes, Charlie, that's what Article 5 says, even under a President Obama. The whole idea of NATO is collective security to deter any attack.

"The agreement when you are a NATO ally is if another country is attacked, you're going to be expected to be called upon and help." This was a better answer than Obama's initial reaction to Moscow's aggression that both sides go to a neutral corner, as if both were at fault.

Their continued attack on Palin's bona fides after being mayor and governor contrasts sharply to the media's blind acceptance of Obama's prior "experience" as a community organizer.

Even Obama admitted in his book, "Dreams From My Father": "When classmates in college asked me just what it was that a community organizer did, I couldn't answer them directly." He'd also be hard-pressed to explain what he accomplished in that role. But don't expect the media to press him.

At a forum last week on national service, Obama was asked if Democrats, in going after Palin's qualifications to be vice president, have belittled the service small-town mayors perform every day.

"We've had an awful lot of small-town mayors at the Democratic Convention, I assure you," Obama said. "I meet them all the time. The mayors have some of the toughest jobs in the country because that's where the rubber hits the road. You know, we yak in the Senate; they actually have to fill potholes and trim trees and make sure the garbage is taken away."

Sort of like being a community organizer, only with actual responsibilities.
Governor Palin has many opinions, views, and policy positions and none seem to be above her pay grade.

Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton - SNL Parody

Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton were satirized on SNL last night. I like Sarah and dislike Hillary (immensely), but this is just plain funny.
