Let's Slay the Dreamer Say Cain Naysayers
Christian Newswire ^ | 11-9-11 | Alveda King

Posted on 11/09/2011 11:41:31 AM PST by Driftwood1

Once again, the American Dream is under attack. Cain naysayers hope to 'slay the dreamer.' The establishment is horrified by Mr. Cain because of what he represents. Mr. Cain is the epitome of the American dream; he grew up poor, worked his way up to success through hard work using a work ethic he inherited from his father and mother. He's a true bootstraps story.

Mr. Cain is the fulfillment of Dr. Martin Luther King's dream. He lived the Black American experience in the South and, by the content of his character - not the color of his skin, he has studied hard, worked hard, successfully run corporations, had a successful radio show and now aspires to the office of President of the United States. Like Martin Luther King, Mr. Cain graduated from Morehouse College, is a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and is not a politician. Mr. Cain has done all this because he loves this country and not out of some sense of self-importance.

If the general presidential election features two black men of opposing political views and Black America has an honest political debate, the Democrats would lose a portion of their 90% stranglehold on the Black vote.

If we have an honest discussion on whether the war on poverty should be fought with welfare or with economic growth in the private sector, Democrats will lose Black votes. When Mr. Cain says that our welfare system has held blacks back, and that it promotes single parent households, that it kills incentive and breeds a culture of, helplessness; he is correct. As this truth resonates, the establishment knows that we will see more blacks becoming economic conservatives. So their answer? Slay the dreamer.

These are political ploys by the establishment to attempt a high tech lynching akin to racial profiling in a vicious attempt to eliminate this man who has the courage to present life affirming solutions for America's problems.

Someone please call 9-9-9.

The Left is horrified at the prospects of having to run against Cain. He would surely split the black vote and that spells electoral disaster for them in every district across the land.......

Mr. Cain has solutions because he is able to see the problems.

I think the democrats are frightened of him - big time. However, I think many black voters see him as the Uncle Tom - which is exactly what Obama and the rest want.

Up until the recent "scandal", Cain would have gotten no more black votes than any other Republican would. But don't underestimate how angry they are over these types of media lynchings. Whether it translates into votes remains to be seen, but it certainly has changed the dynamic.

Excellent article. The American Dream has been under attack for decades and woe be unto the candidate that tries to do right by the people. If we don’t stop this crap right here right now, our country is finished. I’m fighting.

I hope you’re right and that they see through the smoke and mirrors here.

Racists do believe the “Uncle Tom” crap... The Sharpton and Jackson types are the perfect example. They don’t get $$$ unless they’re keeping the black man down and victims.

I agree with you.

If anything many black, white, brown and yellow Americans are angry over how Herman Cain has been bashed around by white liberals and by what many in label as white trailer trash bimbos or gold diggers.

My intuition tells me that if Herman Cain is on the ticket we will be surprised many by how many minority votes he gets!

I believe the time has arrived for Herman Cain.

Introducing a national sales tax without getting rid of the income tax is the most asinine-nine-nine idea on the table.

That said, this character assassination stuff is a load of crap.

The attacks against Cain are from the same type playbook as was used against Clarence Thomas, Sarah Palin, and Obama’s 2004 Senate opponent, Jack Ryan.

What I find most disturbing is the apparent lack of critical thinking by Americans, who won’t bother to base their conclusions on research, especially in this case, in which the subject is deemed guilty of the high crime of being Conservative While Black.

The accusers’ apparent motives, their methodologies, their connections, etc, all warrant a hard look. It’d be refreshing to learn voters are seeking out the commonalities among the attacks i.e., the initial test salvos timed against favorable polling data for the target (as with Ryan and Palin), followed by more concentrated and intensified attacks (Thomas, Ryan and Palin). Because Cain isn’t backing down, we’ll see the next step... accusation by committee (the future five-bimbo “news conference”). That should be quite a spectacle.

By the time the closing chapter of this saga is written, someone will probably have placed Cain on the grassy knoll in Dallas on afternoon of 22 Nov 1963.

All that said...

Today’s release of a Rasmussen GOP poll showing Cain still holding a 4-point lead in Florida gives rise to hopes that at last some measure of reason is being applied. Maybe some mental and emotional growth has occurred after all.

Whenever southern democrats wanted community support for lynching a black man, they would accuse him of raping a white woman. These attacks on Cain are ment to appeal to the alledged racist nature of conservatives. It greatly perplexes Cain's detractors that their ploy is not haveing the desired effect (ain't that right Carl?).

Agreed. I like Cain now more than before. I don’t want a new federal sales tax. But these attacks on him are bs. These attacks have a tendency to polarize, and on this point alone, I’m on Cain’s side.

I think what they want is to paint conservatives as either “racists” or “pro-sexual harassment”.

If Conservatives who back Herman Cain abandon him, they will say they are racists who fear a “sexual black man” who hits on “blonde white women”. They will say Conservatives are racists for fearing the black man’s sexuality.

If Conservatives stick with Cain, they will say Conservatives don’t care about sexual harassment, they don’t believe it exists, or that they are insensitive to women’s issues.

They want to put Conservatives in that box.

To the left this is a win-win.

Conservatives have to make it a lose-lose for them.

I think at this point the only answer is for Conservatives is to double down on Cain. The media and the left already have issues, they don’t like Cain and they want to cast Cain as the “black friend” of Conservatives to “deflect from racism inherent in the GOP”, to quote some of those celebrity leftists. I think they have to go all the way to the line with their BS before they figure out their errors, at which point it will backfire on them.

All they have done so far is attack the “black man”. They are the one’s who attack him for his “black sexuality” because they can hide behind the anonymous charges. But if it goes to the line they will have to attack Herman Cain. So far “Black Man” is all they admit to seeing. They don’t see his ideas or his ideals - at least they don’t want to admit they see them - and if they continue to attack him with innuendo and racism they will lose in the end, I think. They will turn off some of their base.

They need to be made to address the merits of his arguments. If all they ever do is this character assassination with innuendo - innuendo that really doesn’t amount to much (even if it is true it seems to me it is being made into more than it should be eg if a White Guy put his hand on her thigh would this be a big deal?) - then I think the African American community will come to realize that this is using a man’s race to attack his ideology, which is the epitome of racism.
