The Five Demolishes Rangel Over Tea Party ‘Crackers’ Gibe: ‘Desperate,’ Deflecting From His Own Shady Ethics

The Five today unloaded on Democratic congressman Charlie Rangel for likening tea partiers to “white crackers” who opposed civil rights. Andrea Tantaros said Rangel was being “desperate” and “shameful,” suggesting he makes outlandish statements like this to “deflect attention away from him… and his ethical troubles.”

Brian Kilmeade also found it outrageous how Rangel basically accused the GOP of being worse for the country than al-Qaeda in trying to “sabotage” the country. Eric Bolling mockingly scolded Rangel for saying “cracker” instead of “cracka” because the second one is totally not a racist word. Bob Beckel suggested Rangel should be more careful, since the evidence of tea party racism was isolated and not “rampant.”

They also had some choice words for the New Haven Register apologizing over comparing Fox News to the KKK. Dana Perino said “they love to hate,” while Tantaros didn’t buy the supposed sincerity of their apology after basically accusing Fox of “elevating racists.”
