Skip to comments.Herman Cain fires back in highly offensive MSNBC interview
Posted on 10/06/2011 11:02:27 PM PDT by sybilll
Im not sure if Ive ever heard a more offensive interview on MSNBC than the one I just heard from Lawrence ODonnell with Herman Cain. In one interview ODonnell managed to accuse Herman Cain of not only sitting on the sidelines during the civil rights movement, but also of dodging the Vietnam war. His contempt for a black Republican has never been more clear. At one point in the interview, ODonnell asked Cain where America would be right now if Rosa Parks took his dads advice to stay out of trouble and just sit in the back of the bus. Seriously. It was like he was trying to prove that Cain hadnt earned his black skin or something. It was terribly offensive and I hope Cain never steps foot again in the studios of MSNBC.
I will say that Cain proved he could hold his own and not be rattled by the offensive assumptions of these whackos on MSNBC. He hit back in the interview several times but always kept his cool. He could have hit back more in my opinion but overall I think he did great.
Its a long interview but it covers four main topics: Brainwashing, Civil Rights Movement, War dodging, and the 9-9-9 plan.
The “Palinization” of Cain has begun...
If you think a Female Conservative scares them, a Black Conservative makes them crazy. (crazier?)
Where to start, first of all a leftist like lawrence O worships draft dodgers like Bill Clinton, and even downright traitors like John Kerry. Except when he wants to cause trouble for a republican.

Warning, it is 23 minutes long, but worth every minute (if you have taken your blood pressure meds). Lawrence is despicable.
love him, i’m on board....stronger than i thought....perry’s ok with me too.
I’m not sure it will work (Palinizing Cain). He is much more articulate than Sarah and comes across as more authentic than her IMO.
O’Donnell is just a loud-mouthed limousine liberal who is just PO’d that Cain refuses to live on the DNC plantation. Get used to it Larry. It’s going to get worse as more and more “minorities”, as your side likes to call them, figure out that you liberals have been scamming them for years.
This is going to be light treatment of Cain when we look back on it. I see the Lib Rats increasingly heading over the bend as the signs that Obummer is too damaged and incompetent to win reelection. If Obummer losses, it will be a full repudiation of their worthless political views. Toads like the PMSLSD hosts are going to lash out like nothing we have ever seen on television towards our guys, especially if they are looking good in the polls like Cain.
Who advised him to go on a show hosted by an admitted communist in the first place?
I'd managed to avoid him until I watched Condi's interview with him earlier this year. I can't fathom why anyone would accede to an interview with him.
Wow... check this out
Cain holds his own. Who the heck does that interviewer think he is? Insulting doesn’t begin to describe it. Every questions was loaded. Go Cain!
I think I would have reached through the screen and grabbed that commie maggot Lawrence O’Donnell and choked him out.
Cain showed remarkable temperament and focus in the face of what was less of an interview than it was a series of rude insults.
They may try but so far, he’s staying waaaay ahead of them. And does it with his usual poise.
Next Question, Lawrence!!! Great smackdown.
As usual, liberals know how black people are supposed to act. Just ask them.
But of course O’Donnell will get a “dispensation” for his despicable condescension from the poverty pimps, who (after all) know where their bread is buttered.
bookmarked for morning
nutmeg, would you be kind enough to bump this for the morning crew? I think it is a must see, but, I am not feeling well, so logging on in the AM is unlikely. Thank you in advance.
ODonnell really is a loathsome little dick.
Cain looks better all the time IMO.
No, he’s not perfect....nobody is perfect.
Even Reagan had flaws.
I just wish the first black president could have been a man
like Cain. Instead the Amazing Zero took that honor....what a disgrace :-(
Cain/Rubio or Cain/Palin will suit me just fine.
And O'Donnell is about as much of a whackjob as Private Pyle.
Wait.... Isn’t criticism of Herman Cain considered “racist?”
I’ll be logging off for the “night” (early AM) in a few minutes, but I’ll ping my list to this thread. Have a good night, sybilll... hope you feel better. :-)

Countdown until Zer0 leaves Office: 470 days as of October 7, 2011.
Just watched it.
Cain owned LOD
LOD didn’t even catch what Cain meant at the end of the interview when Cain said he would be happy to come back on anytime.
In other words, Cain would be more than happy to come back on and verbally slap LOD around a little more.
Cain made a fool out of LOD, and LOD still doesn’t know it.
How stupid is LOD to even think that the Navy is going to send a mind like Cain’s to Viet Nam when he can serve in a much better capacity here at home?
Is LOD that stupid, or did he think he had a good “gotcha” question and said it without thinking it thru?
Yeah, let’s pull a Rocket Scientist out of his job and send him to Nam to get shot at and possibly killed.
Libs proving their stupidity on National TV
Too bad no one watches that network.
The left will attack Cain relentlessly as that would basically end their playing of the race card against conservatives if we elect a Black man to the WH
They fear that almost as much as Palin being in the WH, maybe more.
O'donnell is a jerk but his hostile style really gives us a chance to watch Mr. Cain under pressure and IMHO he knocked every question out of the park like Delmon Young facing Yankee's pitching.
I am getting more impressed by the day and this link will be going out to the email list in the morning.
The only issues I still have with Mr. Cain is I am a little leery of signing on to a national sales tax while keeping an income tax, and I would like him to clarify his stance on 2nd amendment issues.
Thanks for that link. This is amazing.
The following questions were asked of all likely voters:
If Herman Cain is the Republican nominee for President against Barack Obama, for whom would you vote?
Someone else 6%
I would not vote 1%
Not sure 4%
If Mitt Romney is the Republican nominee for President against Barack Obama, for whom would you vote?
Someone else 11%
I would not vote 2%
Not sure 7%
Totals may not add up to 100% due to rounding
Marking for later.
Douchebag is too nice a word for O'Donnell. I could think of a lot more accurate words, but I'd get kicked off Free Republic.
This was the first time I spent the time to listen to Herman Cain. His analytic mind trained as a strategic thinker to look at the facts and then make decisions rather than making decisions and then only looking for the facts that support his decisions is heart warming.
While he is excellent, he needs a little more time studying the art of cult deprogramming. It is the only way he can head off O’Bummer’s illogical emotional biased mind control techniques,(learned from Rev. Wright). Cain’s sharp mind would crush O’Bummer in a head on debate. He’s a “Give me the facts and cut the crap” guy. I like that. He’s a strategic decision maker and a leader, not a politician. That’s what we need to lead us out of this mess.
Would love to see his college transcripts side by side with O’Bummer’s. It would be calculus vs. basket weaving courses.
I will take back what I said about Herman Cain. He is performing cult deprogramming. Here is an excerpt from an excellent article on the process:
Margaret Singer often cited as a leading brainwashing and cult expert defined cult deprogramming as providing members with information about the cult and showing them how their own decision-making power had been taken away from them.
That is exactly what Cain was doing in the interview, especially on the topic of brainwashing.
What is needed in this country is a Democrat Cult deprogramming campaign. Here is another excerpt:
Over the years that basic process of sharing information and demonstrating to cult members how the power of persuasion may have compromised their critical and independent thinking, has been refined continuously and improved. In fact, the name cult deprogramming itself has become something of a politically incorrect term. Today most professionals engaged in cult intervention work prefer other labels to describe their work. For example, exit counseling, thought reform consultation, or strategic intervention therapy.
The democrats need strategic intervention therapy.
Should be called “learning to use your God given common sense!” O’Buumer’s class warfare political technique is the same thing Hitler used to gain power. Question is, what crisis will O’Bummer use as the equivalent to Hitler’s burning down the Reichstag.
Lawrence O'Donnell set a half dozen traps and Herman Cain returned them; they wound up on O'Donnell's nose.
Rosa Parks--Herman was a high school student under 18.
Gay is a choice--next question.
Mitt Romney--focus is on winning.
Criticism of unemployed--Herman Cain makes it clear he was speaking to the demonstrators, that they should be demonstrating at the White House since that's who caused the destruction (bravo for that).
Grateful to country for civil rights--greater percentage of Republicans than Democrats on 64-5 legislation.
How avoid Vietnam--rocket assisted projectile analyst--deferred by draft board, missed by lottery.
Now, here is where the little girl turned beet red and demanded to know why Herman Cain didn't just go down and sign up like the he-man John Kerry.
Herman Cain had replied that he was offended by O'Donnell's characterization of "avoiding" and I will add my comment:
Laurence O'Donnell, you fricking maggot, John Kerry is the traitor scum who lied to Ted Kennedy's committee that American fighting men committed totally fictitious atrocities--Kerry should have been court martialled and imprisoned.
O'Donnell, having thrown all his red herrings--and Herman Cain objected that the questions were not about the economy that was in ruins--allowed the candidate to introduce his 9-9-9 plan.
I find it elegant, and the man's mind is a beautiful thing.
And he thinks Newt is brilliant.
I think if you take the two of them with Herman Cain keeping Newt conservative (as the Vice President with Experience in Government) they can revitalize the economy.
The man could not be bested--nor even taken off cadence and message and confidence--by Laurence O'Donnell the notorious hysterical little girl who was the perennial fit-thrower on the McLaughlin Group, voice rising to the banshee shriek as the orderlies rush in with syringes of Thorazine.
Articulate, intelligent, tactical awareness, eschewal of premises, Herman Cain didn't break a sweat--
--of course O'Donnell is a lizard (the eyes give it away) so he wouldn't.
I wrote an email to MSNBC and told them that after watching this disrespectful interview that I would spend tomorrow writng their sponsers and expressing my disgust. If anyone has any questions about whether Mr. Cain can handle extremely hostile and just plain offensive interviewers... I think that they should watch this interview. I doubt whether any of the other candidates could have handled O’Donnell’s offensive remarks and come out on type. I think that either Romney or Perry would have lost it.
I thought Mr. Cain did really well. What really irked me is that O’Donnell had the temerity to ask Herman Cain why he avoided the draft during the Viet Nam years. Cain served in the Navy Department as a civilian. I note that O’Donnell who graduated high school in 1969 and took 7 years to graduate from Harvard never served in Viet Nam. What was O’Donnell’s draft number? Why did it take him 7 years to graduate college? Was he in Canada during part of that time? How many deferrals did O’Donnell get?
He then criticized Herman Cain for not being at the forefront of the civil rights protests while in college. Does this moneyed pipsqueak think Herman Cain who grew up in poverty and segregation in Georgia was opposed to the changes civil rights brought? Cain went to Spellman College, an all-black school in Atlanta. And I am sure at the time, Mr. Cain was glad he did.
Mr. Cain gave better than he got and O’Donnell is despicable.
Cain/Palin Cain/Bolton Cain/Newt Cain/? 2012 here we come!
The next clip on the mufopolitics site was Mr. Cain on Redeye Oct. 5. In this clip, Mr. Cain stated that he would retrofit our Aegis class cruisers with the latest antimissile technology and notify Iran that anything launched against Israel or the U.S. would be shot down, followed by our own launches against enemy facilities. It was a clear, concise, unambiguous message to Iran not to start anything or face the consequences. He proceeded to credit Ronald Reagan and “Peace Through Strength”.

He has both the refreshing power-projection of Ronald Reagan and the technical experience with naval weaponry to articulate it.
Having him debate a president who's allowed Ahmadinejad to task snipers to murder Iranian civilians in the street, menace Israel, insult America, will be satisfying indeed.
He fully satisfies the defense leg of the conservative triad.
In the social genre I just saw him throw back O'Donnell's mockery of his "gay is a choice" position--like Tom Petty, he won't. Back. Down.
Leaving the fiscal, in which he is unmatched, in my view.
Thank you for that view of the boldest American naval attitude since "damn the torpedoes."
He as much as previewed the kind of "go ahead, make my day" moment with that vicious rat in Tehran Americans have been denied since 1979.
I was worried Cain did not have the political expertise to handle these kinds of gotcha questions and extreme attack interviews, but he is doing better every time out.
I think he could do very well in a debate with Obama if it comes down to that.
Didn’t Lawrence O. announce last year that he is a Socialist? Perhaps his views go further left than Socialism.
"Will all due respect, my friend." LOL! This is the Southern gentleman's equivalent to the gentle lady's "Bless your heart," a kind way of telling someone they are being an insufferable boor.
"Lawrence, do you stay up at night coming up with the wording of these questions?...I am offended by your choice of words." OMG! Rocket scientist meets liberal blockhead. Rocket scientist wins.
"Lawrence, I would come back and have a chat with you anytime." ROFLMAO!
Herman Cain once again makes me proud to support him and his campaign to take back the White House from Barack Hussein Obama.
YES! Every abuse of Herman Cain from these would be dictators will cause a rise in his popularity with the 99% of the people in this country who are not communists. The “occupiers” of Wall Street you see on TV represent probably about 1% of us and the worst 1% at that. We must not be fooled by the images we see on TV. Americans are getting ready to stand for our freedom because it is now clear that our government wants it taken totally away. Most people I know are spending a lot more time fearing Washington D.C. than they are at fearing Wall Street or a foreign enemy.
Romney and Perry wouldn't have been treated that harshly. I can't help thinking that O'Donnell, and his liberal cohorts, are nothing but racists after all. In fact, I'm absolutely sure of it, and here's why: They deny black people the right to think for themselves, to believe what they choose to believe, and to say what they choose to say. These sanctimonious hypocrites see only skin color, and you can't get much more racist than that. It's time to start saying it to their faces.
What’s with this “authentic” word? It gets thrown around alot and I don’t think it has any meaning whatsoever.
Palin was great; Cain is great.
