Congressman Slips Up, Accidentally Reveals Elitist Gun-Control Attitude – Here’s What He Said



Democratic Representative Charlie Rangel doesn’t think ordinary people like you and me should have to carry a gun… or even have the right to carry a gun.

But when pressed by The Daily Caller about the armed security he gets the benefit of protection from … suddenly his stance changes.


He begins to demonstrate the outright hypocrisy of some of our gun-grabbing liberal politicians.  Charlie has no problem at all when it comes to taking your gun(s) away.

But by golly, good ole’ Charlie isn’t from the same social class as you, so don’t you dare take his professional armed guards and their guns away from him.

Because, well, he deserves them.

From ZeroHedge…

Rangel went on to say that his own law-abiding constituents in Harlem shouldn’t have to carry guns for their own protection. However, the same rules don’t apply to the political elite.

“Law-abiding citizens just shouldn’t have to carry a gun.You’re not gonna push me in that direction,” he said, standing just five feet from a Capitol Police officer, who stood at his post by the House Speaker’s Lobby.

The DC noted to Rangel he and other members of Congress are protected by armed members of the U.S. Capitol Police.

“Well that’s a little different.  I think we deserve–I think we need to be protected down here.” Rangel laughingly insisted.

And then the article finishes with the most-important point…

You’ve got to love how he says that he ‘deserves’ protection before quickly correcting himself. This is the mindset of the political elite. They deserve to be protected with firearms. The people who have our legal rights in their hands, believe that they are better than the rest of us, who are mere children that can’t be trusted with guns. 

So true.  It’s not too often that we hear such a direct admission of what our political elite really think of their own law-abiding constituents.

He wants to enjoy every one of his Constitutionally protected rights as an American citizen.   He wants to make sure him and his family are kept safe.

But when it comes down to it…

Guess good ole’ Charlie doesn’t think us peasants should enjoy the rights guaranteed us by the Constitution — even if he and his cronies get to enjoy them.



        • You would have never survived growing up as a military brat, as I did in the 1940s and 1950s when every group, race, nationality and religion had its own tag or moniker. If you are so thin skinned as to let one little word set you off, you would certainly have been rejected by your milbrat peers back in that day, as a wuss. Or is that term even too tough for you? I can give you full book, chapter and verse of what the words were if you think you can take it. But you may just faint dead away. For example, as English/Irish, I was a Brit or Redcoat or Mick or Paddy. Others had other monikers and you either learned to take it in stride or run away crying like a little girl. I am retired USAF, 28 years active duty. God Bless America!

    • Rangel shot an unarmed teenager that climbed over his back fence to swim in his pool and there were no consequences. A regular citizen would have been hung out to dry.

  1. why is Charlie rangel even an activist much less a politician? bet he is an ordained minister too through the online academy of fraud abuse and waste … I am pretty sure this man was convicted of felonies…. 11 out of 13 to be precise. that means he cannot own a gun………why do people keep electing him?

  2. It is no secret that Charlie Rangel is an anti gun, socialist (AKA Establishment Democrat), liar, crook that if his constituency was not ignorant, he would have been voted out of office years ago. The socialist need to disarm the American people to establish their totalitarian, elitist utopia like Venezuela.

  3. Here’s a classic example of liberal elitist anti-gun mental illness Vote Trump and clean out Congress to the bare walls!

  4. Rangel is a race baiting, ignorant, democrat socialist that thinks his s**t don’t stink!! This elitist attitude that he has, along with others like Romney, Sharpton, Graham, McCain, … the list is just too long to count … will one day turn to bite him in the arse. I can’t wait to see it happen.

  5. Rangel needs someone to push the 2nd Amendment under his nose. A well regulated militia, being necessary
    to the security of a “free” state, the right of people to keep and bear arms, shall NOT be infringed.

  6. Rangel needs someone to light a fire under him, and push the 2nd amendment in his face as it heats up, making sure he gets the point. The second amendment right is not to be infringed upon by anyone. All politicians are just afraid of a country wide revolt, so they want to disarm us so they can take over without problem.

  7. No, Charlie is a thubish , hooligan of the lowest, denominator who is a hypocrite, has no honor or respect for The American System, is no patriot, has no class or integrity, and who dishonors America.

  8. Rangel is a crass, ill-mannered, bombastic, acerbic, non-patriot, who has no respect for The Constitution, is deceptive, ignorant, and a hypocrite who needs to be thrown out of Congress on his ear. He is a joke and a disgrace to The American People and his days are numbered imo.

  9. Typical double standards. They laugh at the prospect of removing their armed security. They don’t get why it’s no different than asking ordinary citizens to give up concealed carry. This ideology is why they should all be removed from office and disbarred. Tyrants.

  10. Like 99% of these lying socialists, Demorats, THEY are running the U.S. right into the sewer !!! GO TRUMP !!!

  11. Who would take a bullet for that worthless old worn out half Witt? Surprised he could find anybody to guard the old tax cheat!

  12. Karl Marx called these people (endearingly) man’s natural superiors. He was speaking, of course, of the Feudal Lords and lamenting how the middle class destroys the Feudal Estate when ever it occurs by making cold hard cash. I’m not making this up. Isn’t this what we see? The Socialists who manipulate the masses with their lies tell all of us how THEY will save us from the very chaos they create. As if they are so much better at it than any of us – if we but give up just a little of our freedom? And a little and a little?

    And have you noticed that if you want to take control of your life in just about any way shape or form they do not tolerate it? They have their ,laws and laws and laws to make sure that not only do you always look to them on every issue but that you NEVER can solve your own problems. Of course if somehow they just aren’t there in time to take care of you… welllll – oh oops! You are just a serf anyway and they have plenty more of those! In the words of King Longshanks (Braveheart) after ordering archers to fire on the Scotts while his own soldiers were still engaged – “What? We have reserves!”

    Which Criminal-Bitch truly believes she is the most superior Natural Superior of all? Why, Hillary Clinton of course. There isn’t a law written she actually has to obey if she doesn’t want to…. even murder! In terms of Natural Superiors Rangel is small potatoes! A token!

    • Excellent post, and factual. We, the people have allowed this because of the issues of life that “We” must deal with, our elected Rep’s are allowed to have large staffs, at our expense, and problems to them are somebodies else’s problems to solve. The highest office in the land has only 8 years allowed, and just look at the damage the current fool has done. Why do we allow fools like Rangel, who could not find his backside standing in a corner of a room running his hand down the walls, has been a Congressman almost as long as most people have been alive. And what have we gained from his efforts……….”Well, he’s rich and powerful, and we are poorer for that!

      TERM LIMITS, Now!!!!!!

  13. I wanna know who pays for his armed protectors? Im sure its “we the people”….you do know by now depressions are man made…(banker made actually) Dont snivel when your job is lost and you get a forcloser notice and you lose everything including equity….10.2 trillion worth roughly in 2008….imagine who gained the wealth and what the numbers were during the great depression? 4300 banks collapsed….how fucking convienient for the benifactor

  14. its a huge history lesson….we immigrated here for prosperity and hope…what happened? The gov came thru and murdered the native americans ( of which im proud to be ) And stole the land….and now charging us taxes to live on it??? Its wasnt theirs to begin with so explain that?? We the people gave them too much power to begin with….why does someone feel they have to be a babysitter in the form of a comunist leader or a president? Someones view is always going to be different

  15. Trey Gowdy for President ! Who appointed all these ignoramus blacks into office ? …an ignorant black ! Learn from this bleak era in US history people !
