Skip to comments.Liberals: Cain Victory in Straw Poll PROVES Republicans, Tea Partiers are Racist (With Pictures)
Posted on 09/25/2011 5:22:40 AM PDT by therightliveswithus
...That brings us to yesterday, when Herman Cain, a former CEO of Godfather's Pizza, won a surprise landslide victory in the Florida Republican Straw Poll. Mr. Cain happens to be African-American, but those voting did not care. He received 37% of the vote. He was chosen as the best candidate simply because people at the straw poll thought he was the best candidate. The second highest vote-getter was Rick Perry with only 15%.
Considering Mr. Cain's decisive victory and the massive support that he has received from the Tea Party, one may think that that would utterly disprove the talking point that Tea Partiers are racists. Instead, liberals have decided to double down, exclaiming that Mr. Cain's landslide victory over his Caucasian counterparts somehow proves that Republicans, and the Tea Party, are a bevy of racists.
The reasoning for these liberals goes something like this: "Herman Cain is black. He won the Florida Republican Straw Poll. Therefore, Republicans are voting for him just to say they're not racist, but they'd never actually nominate him, even though they are voting for his nomination." It makes no sense to anyone that has a conscience, but then again, we must remember that liberals are making these arguments.
That is way impossibly stupid comments like these exist. From Democratic Underground:
Or these from the Huffington Post. This first one is actually pretty scary:

Want to see Cain debate Clinton? He is the real deal.
The one good thing about Libtards is they tend to kill their own.
Yup! Just like I eat lots of eggplant because I really don’t like it. I just can’t get enough of it. /S
These and similar comments prove that it is impossible to have a rational conversation with a liberal. They are unreasonable children who must be taught how to think. Phrases such as “Listen; Pay attention; THINK about what you are saying before you open your mouth; Try to understand; You are talking, not listening.” These are the words we use to instill rational thought into our children.
Liberals are children who have never learned to think. They merely jabber away without any consideration for common sense, logic or truth. Their minds are filled with mush. They speak baby talk, pure jibberish. Their inability to think is the only thing we need to understand about what they are saying. We must teach them how to properly use their ability to communicate.
I met Cain at the Fla. CPAC. As I left I had an Epiphany. NO to Romney. No to perry. Its Cain. He is NOT political. He is ABSOLUTELY capable of debating obama. He is a breath of fresh air. He is honest. If we can get him on the ticket. No more Romney’s no more Perry’s. Please start sending him money. I don’t have much but I plan on sending him what I can. He needs more airtime!!! The more I hear him the more I love him. There is an Old YouTube out there where he wins a debate with bill Clinton at a town hall meeting. He had Clinton all flustered when he rattled off all types statistics.
I also hold my breath to breathe.
Just wait for the “63% of Republicans are racist” rants.
But, but, I read where Morgan Freeman said the Tea Partiers were racist...now he couldn’t be wrong, could he? /s
We DON’T want Rino (Phoney) Romney OR Ricardo (Mehhicco) Pherry.
We Really, Really, Really DON’T WANT EITHER!
BTW—Cain is a conservative.
And they see that 73% of the delegates voted against him.
that was 63%. I know. using Democrat voting math.
I’m not too happy with a national sales tax, but beyond that, fine.
I absolutely LOVE Herman Cain and he is the real deal. If he could be elected President, I have no doubt that he would go down as one of the “greats.” His honesty is such a breath of fresh air and his very countenance inspires confidence in ourselves and in our nation..I could listen to his wisdom all day long..If black folks would embrace him as their leader and their “hope” they would see their lives changed in unbelievable ways because the black folks I know are conservative in so many ways. It is just that their leaders have misled them for so long...
I thought they’d take a different tact, saying that Cain won 37% of the vote, therefore 63% of the Tea Party is racist - and ready to lynch the next black they see on the street.
As to their tact, what they’re really saying is EXACTLY why they nominated Obama in the first place and then elected him - which was to assuage their white guilt.
PLEASE tell me where I can get one of these T-shirts!
Hmmm. Herman Cain or Obama. Herman Cain or Obama. That’s a tough one.
If you don’t like Cain you are a racist. If you like him you are a racist. Any questions????
I agree with you. I’m also quite aware that Herman Cain is a real conservative. I support his candidacy, 100%.
The rest of the current field? Not at all.
If we’re damned if we do and damned if we don’t, why don’t we just do what we want?
To a liberal, Herman Cain is a black man. To a conservative, Herman Cain is a conservative.
Would he reduce the size of government, absolutely? Fire government employees? Eliminate entire departments? Use executive orders to rein in out of control departments like the EPA? Withdraw from bad treaties that haven’t been ratified by the Senate? Or will he be a “good government” kind of guy?
My big concern with him is he has no record of making government smallification decisions when the going is tough. That he is “not political” is not necessarily good. The presidency is a political office. Can he maneuver in that space and stick to genuine conservative principles? Or will he just be a another guy that “grows” and engenders “strange new respect” in the Washington establishment after a couple of years. Unfortunately, with no record in office of making hard decisions when the heat is on and the networks are all showing pictures of grandmas and children that he is personally starving to death, that’s anyone’s guess. Right now, all we have is talk—good talk but it’s just talk.
I LOVE IT!
You nailed that one, with the exception of his business success, Cain is all talk. We have NO idea how he will actually govern under the political pressures of the presidency. So many are simply projecting into Cain their own political fantasies, and they can do that because he has NEVER actually had to govern and make tough political decisions. He is essentially a blank slate, nothing bad in his past, but no real substance other than his business acumen and his personality.
I know that's REALLY bad--kind of like "Honkies for Herman"--but it does satisfy that part of me wants to stuff the "race card" down liberals' throats!
And the great thing about Cain is that he is so "comfortable in his own skin" that the color of it ceases to be an issue--except with those who REALLY can't focus on anything else!
Republicans are racists because they oppose affirmative action. Democrats aren’t racists because they realize that, without affirmative action, blacks will never be able to compete.
If Cain doesn’t make it to the finals expect a barrage of what the libs are posting now.
While he has solid experience in the executive it’s dealing with the byzantine legislative machinations that he lacks. Which is why I prefer candidates with gubnatorial experience because of the patientce sometimes needed to deal with this.
But Romney,and Perry are not my first choices for a lot of reasons either. These include Guardasil, global warming, healthcare and the illegal question and certainly in Romneys case unwillingness to recognize the trend towards socalism.
That is why Vermont is such a lily-white state...all those ‘tea-baggers’ living there...
I’ve always considered taxing “Business” as taxing “Consumers”. If you have a business making and selling widgets, do you not consider materials, labor, facilites, utilities, taxes, etc. as part of your “costs” that are passed along to the consumer when you set the price of your goods & services?
In other words, business taxes don’t tax “business” but are passed along to the eventual consumer. This presumes the company is in “business” to make a profit.
So, at it’s logical conclusion, Cain’s 999 plan is a 27% plan for comsumers — unless it has some sort of magical restrictions that can prevent businesses from passing along “costs” by figuring it into the price of their goods & services.
It is not my intent to denigrate Cain. I want him in the debates and competing for the primary. If he wins the primary, he has my vote. But I just think his 999 plan is just more of a campaign gimmick and can be easily taken for granted by those who don’t undertand simple business math.
Your comment is spooky. Just before getting this far, I went out to get another cup of coffee and repeated to my wife what the libs were saying and used almost your exact words.
In the past (no more), when I debated libs and backed them into a corner, they'd close the discussion by walking away after saying "Oh, that just THEIR opinion" or "You're SO judgmental!".
Most public policy is SUPPOSED to be set by Congress. Sweep the career politicians out of Congress. Congress likes that the people are conditioned to believe the president sets policy, it keeps attention off their cheese.
Do you know how hard it will be for anybody to reduce the size of the federal government and eliminate entire departments? Hopefully he can, but it will be an uphill battle.
let them abort themselves if they want
Works for me.
Let’s be honest. For the most part they are Parasites that contribute nothing at all to society. We really would be better off without them.
The 9-9-9 is a first stage to the Fair Tax according the Cain. It is required because it is quick, the FairTax requires a repeal of the 16th amendment and that will take a while, but he will get that done too.
It’s not the fair tax portion of 999 I dislike. It’s the third 9 of the tri-fecta; the national sales tax.
I tried sending a donation to Cain last night and it wouldn’t go through...I’ll try again today.
Would LOVE to know how much money is coming in for him.
Oh please, dear God!!!!
Senator KKK Byrd comes to mind and also who said about zero, “a few years back he would be bringing me my cofee”
Great singing of the National Anthem during a Tea Party rally with Herman Cain. Lewis sang the National Anthem at Cain’s Presidential announcement.
