Cornell Belcher: Cain's "Brainwashed" Remark Was "Racist, Bigoted"
Real Clear Politics ^ | September 30, 2011

Posted on 09/30/2011 3:24:32 PM PDT by Drrdot

Democratic strategist Cornell Belcher says there is a media "double-standard" over Herman Cain saying blacks have been "brainwashed." Belcher calls Mr. Cain a bigot and a racist and says this incident is a "teachable moment."

CORNELL BELCHER, DEMOCRATIC STRATEGIST: First of all, do you think you're going to invite me on the show and then I'm not going to talk about the ridiculousness of that statement? Two things. One is a great way to sort of get people on your side and win voters is to attack their intelligence.

So great job there. Really sensible, Herman Cain.

The second part here is, it's really a teachable moment. You know, if I came on your show, Anderson, and I said, all Jewish people are brainwashed, I probably wouldn't be invited back to CNN and I assure you the condemnation would be swift and it'd be powerful and be strong.

What Herman Cain said was a racist, bigoted statement and it should treated like a racist and bigoted person who makes those racist and bigoted statements.

COOPER: Ari, what about that? I mean saying black voters have been brainwashed, how does that language play outside his supporters?...

The question we're all left wondering is.....Is it possible Cornell Belcher one of the brainwashed?

Why can’t this idiot understand that not all blacks are required to think alike, that they are entitled to individual opinions and views and can even be conservatives if they so desire? This ain’t Iran!

Cain is pissing off all the right people. I love it. Even the Rev-rund Jac-suuun has released a statement.

Borrowed from Merriam-Webster:

Main Entry: id·i·ot
Pronunciation: ‘i-dE-&t
Function: noun
: a person with esp. profound mental retardation
NOTE: While the terms idiot imbecile , and moron survive in many state codes and statutes, they are generally no longer used in both medical and legal contexts. The modern terminology distinguishes between mild, moderate, severe, and profound levels of retardation. Historically persons with mental retardation have suffered legal disabilities (as in not being allowed to marry or vote). Generally today, an adult with mental retardation who is his or her own guardian does not suffer these disabilities.

Oh yeah. He is brainwashed that Minimum wage increase

He is brainwashed that Democrats want to help blacks. No, they want to keep them poor, on the dole, and voting Democrat.

He is probably brainwashed that Obama's regulations help blacks. It helps increase food inflation and increase energy costs for the poor.

And their Marriage ideas will decrease Marriage for them and increase fatherlessness; in Not defending DOMA and promoting homosexuality.

And I don't have to say what abortion does to blacks. That much is obvious.

Yup, he is brainwashed and needs to see that Democratic Politics for him equals slavery just as it always has.

“Democrat strategist. He is too stupid to get a real job.”

Unfortunately, that is a very good paying job these days. Media money and stimulus money somehow ends up in their pockets.

Herman Cain is their worst nightmare!

The WORST thing about him is that he is ARMED WITH THE TRUTH!

MESSAGE TO HERMAN:

Be careful! They are going to throw everything they've got at you--and then some!

On the other hand, take comfort in the knowledge that TRUTH is on your side--and so are millions of TRUTH-LOVING PEOPLE!

We want to be sort of gone after. We want to be pursued. We want to be romanced. And I think what you have right now, the beauty of this race is that you have the Democratic Party, you know, fully engaged in trying to romance the black voters in this country.

Cornell Belcher, Aug 10, 2007

It is obvious that emotion is the driving force in Belcher's mindset.

Cain is taking it to them.

With that, I hope he just turns away now and stays on message with his 999 plan and other common sense ideas.

Many of these people are absolutely hopeless and cannot EVER be helped. They are LOST to our society. To give them any attention just brings on trouble.

Tea Partiers can be brainwashed, Rush Listeners can be brainwashed and Fox Watchers can be brainwashed for these people actually have brains. What is Mr. Belcher implying about Black Democrats?

Oddly, the last Republican candidate that I recall having used the word “brainwashed” was none other than the father of Mr. Cain’s chief opponent. George W. Romney said he had been brainwashed by failed U.S. policy in Vietnam, and the senior Romney never recovered for blurting out the truth. The American people don’t like their candidates talking ab out being “brainswashed” because they fear they may be telling too much truth.

Interesting that in the entire country, there are no black Democratic candidates, nor white, who will run against Obama. A real headscratcher.

Does he actually think that Cain was knocking African Americans? What has Mr. Belcher done in his life, other than try to manipulate his fellow blacks?

OK, not “brainwashed”, then; just “communi-organized”. That’s even worse. It’s even less of an excuse.

Haha, nobody knows; that's why the link on Drudge is listed as "Dem strategist calls Herman Cain 'bigoted,' 'racist'..." (emphasis mine.)

Thinking of when Moses went back to free the Israelites. They wanted nothing to do with him, at first. God changed their mind. What a thought, at any given moment we might see God bring Cain to confront Zero and call down plagues. Herman Cain said he felt God saved him from Stage 4 cancer for a purpose. I do not doubt the possibility.

Interesting you would say that as my husband and I had this conversation the other night. I was saying my only concern about Cain was his history of cancer, but as I reflected on it, I thought about the excellent history show Michael Medved has on the evidence of Divine intervention in American history. There are so many instances where seeming miracles occurred for America to prevail. I think this is another one of those instances and agree with Mr. Cain that he was cured for a purpose.

Deep down, they know what it does to them.
