Skip to comments.Herman Cain urged to quit presidential race by angry Latino Republicans [Video]
Posted on 07/17/2011 6:38:01 AM PDT by Pan_Yan
"We call on Herman Cain to drop his candidacy for president. His recent comments and lack of practical solutions to solving illegal immigration show hes not a serious candidate," the Somos Republicans group wrote in a statement released Monday.
"Many Hispanics find his recent comments comparing immigrants to 'invading Huns' offensive, and also insensitive when thousands of immigrants died crossing the desert. Were looking for practical and humane solutions, and find Cains pandering to xenophobes disgusting. Apparently nativist tea has been served up at many tea parties! Hispanics are a key swing vote, and whichever GOP candidate succeeds in winning the nomination cannot win the general election without the Hispanic vote. Cain needs to leave the field open to more serious candidates," Somos demanded.
Apparently the Arizona-based organization, which claims to be "the fastest growing Hispanic Republican group in the nation," was not impressed with the inspiration the former Godfather's Pizza chief executive received on a recent trip to Asia.

When *ssholes hate you, you’re doing right.
Whiney collectivisits. DEFUND all socialist collectives, foreign and domestic. HOORAY Herman Cain!
You’re both right ;-)
A trifecta for pissing off the L.A. Slimes too!
The comments by Cain that got the Somos group all riled up:
“I just got back from China,” Cain told potential voters in Pella, Iowa, in early June. “Ever heard of the Great Wall of China? It looks pretty sturdy. And that sucker is real high. I think we can build one if we want to! We have put a man on the moon, we can build a fence! Now, my fence might be part Great Wall and part electrical technology,” Cain continued. “It will be a 20-foot wall, barbed wire, electrified on the top, and on this side of the fence, I’ll have that moat that President Obama talked about. And I would put those alligators in that moat!”
Hear hear, Herman.
An Arizona based “republican leaning” pro illegal alien latino activist group has announced they don’t like Herman Cain. Guess he has to quit now.
Based on their agenda, the Somos Republicans have been proven to be a Liberal DEMOCRATIC group. They are not who they say there are... they are socialists not conservatives.
That sounds like an excellent solution or at least a good start.
Cain must be over the target. Serious solution to immigration is to enforce immigration laws. This is United States territory, and only those we say can come here can come here.
“Hispanics are a key swing vote”
Conservatives need to stop pandering to identity politics. When you give preferential treatment to one group, to buy their votes, another group loses out.
The only way to really be big tent, is to be color blind.
Also, courting those who don’t have the right to vote, should be the sole domain of the Rats.
Racist Peas of Sh!t LA Times.
I agree, you should always be sensitive to the needs of criminals who are hurt or die while committing their crimes.
Notice how quickly the word "illegal" is dropped.
>>”Many Hispanics find his recent comments comparing immigrants to ‘invading Huns’ offensive<<
I can’t find that quote, but does any one want to lay odds Mr. Cain compared ILLEGAL aliens to invaders?
born December 13, 1945 in Memphis, TN (Meets the Jus Soli Requirement)
Luther Cain Jr., born March 16, 1925 in TN, died March 29, 1982 in Atlanta, GA
Lenora Davis, born July 27, 1925 in GA, died August 20, 2005 in Atlanta, GA
Both parents were US Citizens at the time of his birth (Meets the Jus Sanguinis Requirement)
Herman Cain is a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN
Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama ISN'T!
He’s not afraid of PC and tells it like it is. After this administration, he is what America needs to get us back to where we should have been.
I supposes many Huns dies crossing the plains into Europe. Best bet is to stay home, then, and avoid the desert altogether.
"Many Hispanics find his recent comments comparing immigrants to 'invading Huns' offensive, and also insensitive when thousands of immigrants died crossing the desert."Illegal immigrants died crossing the desert? Nobody said these Huns were smart.
Well, I find it offensive that I have to pay higher taxes so these people can invade my country and receive welfare benefits. Really offensive.
Is there a Hun-American group that could get outraged at the remarks by the Hispanics?
So we have a bunch of Open-Borders Hispanics calling themselves Republicans now...
my opinion of Cain just went up!
I'm not interested in the opinions & ideas of racists.
Have you read Tom Clancy’s latest novel - Against All Enemies? He researches his novels quite well and in the book he describes the intricate system of tunnels which exist across the border - so much for a fence.
What you said!
The RINOs and their friends on the left are desperate to eliminate conservatives from the race.
It tells me that they fear a conservative win if there are any in the race.
“Hispanics are a key swing vote, and whichever GOP candidate succeeds in winning the nomination cannot win the general election without the Hispanic vote.”
That’s not true, now. It may be the case in 20 or 30 years, but the fact is that any Republican that unifies (or gets reasonably close) the White Vote wins in a landslide.
That’s why the Israeli fence along the West Bank not only goes high, it does deep.
Not to mention we have an illegal president in the white house...I guess if you are in favor of his being outed, you would be cited in the LATimes as a liberal demoncrat....LOL.
Every time Herman pisses off another special interest group I like him more.
absolutely! i loved it when Cain suggested Sharia-loving Muslims in the government be given a loyalty test.
as for “ insensitive when thousands of immigrants died crossing the desert. “ i think he understands, that they wouldn’t have died, if they didn’t cross illegally.
Maybe Cain simply respects our Laws, and saves his compassion for the MANY thousands of Americans killed BY illegal immigrants, from murders to drunk driving...
Every time Herman opens his mouth, he gives me one more reason to vote for him!
And polls, all the polls, show that few things unify Americans more than stopping illegal immigration. Even a large portion of legal Hispanics are for more rigid enforcement, something the press doesn't like to talk about.
Every time Herman opens his mouth, he gives me one more reason to vote for him!
Yeah; I like him too but, everyone is not a stone cold Conservative like you and me. But, bless his heart, Herman needs to be a little more “street wise”. He just doesn’t calculate how many votes he loses when he makes “red meat” statements like that. (This is not the first.) Even the Bible says “A soft answer turns away wrath”. Why alienate the largest minority group in America who DO vote when just calling a little wisdom into play would be best? I always taught my sons that there is never a reason to be rude. You will go a lot farther in life with demonstrating subtilty sometimes. You know the old saying; “Hold your friends close and your enemies closer.” It’s hard to sucker punch them when you pushed them too far away from you to reach them.
Poor Herman; he keeps shooting himself in the foot.
As a leader of the Hun-Republican community I am offended at being compared to the Somos Republicans, but I'll settle for some free Godfather's pizza.
I guess any group can call themselves anything they want, but these clowns take all of the Democrat positions on immigration, and don’t even seem to exist for anything other than immigration.
Sounds like a fringe RINO group. Cain was undoubtedly speaking about ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, a fact so conveniently IGNORED by such morons. Morons come from every race, you know: black, white, Latino, or olive skinned. A few morons are even Asian.
I believe the wall was built to keep out the invading Mongols.
The Decadent Sickos, screaming like apes at the thought of a Sarah Palin or Michele Bachmann Presidency, are going to blow out their vocal chords when they realize that Herman Cain’s headed for the White House.
Both groups are full of stupid communist assholes.
Seems they have a Cain pinata.
Maybe they’ll all move to North Korea—which has their ideal form of government—why work to establish it here when it’s already in effect there? I’ll help pay for the move. But remember, Decadent Sickos: It’s only a one-way ticket!
For those who think North Korea might be a bit chilly in the winter—there’s always Zimbabwe.
..SOMOS needs to be introduced to Colonel Al Rodriguez and his “You Don’t Speak For Me” organization—real Latino patriots...
The Rio Grande constitutes a fine moat and a while back a FReeper came up with a 1910 El Paso postcard showing a gator flouurishing in a city park.
Sounds just like Karl Rove.
Couldn't work "he just doesn't like brown people" in on a black man, I guess.
