Politico sicks no less than FOUR reporters onto vague nearly 20 year old allegations to smear new GOP Frontrunner Herman Cain.
So desperate are the powers that be to bring down this uber-successful black businessman, that they are doing a Clarence Thomas on him, complete with sketchy allegations such as: a woman accused him of innuendo or personal questions of a sexually suggestive nature and conversations that were regarded as improper in a professional relationship. Can you possibly be any more vague?
A few weeks ago a group of feminists commemorated the 20th anniversary of dopey fraudster Anita Hills pathetic testimony at the Thomas hearings, as if she is some sort of suffragette of the 90s. Now, some in the political good ol boy network are falling over themselves to put out this nothing of a story. Towards the end of their hit piece, they stated that most of the employees that worked for Cain said he was extremely professional and fair to female staffers, and
Cains treatment of women was the same as his treatment of men. Herman treated everyone great, said Mary Ann Cricchio, who was elected to the board of the restaurant group in 1998. She said Cain left such a good impression on the organization that when he spoke at a group event in January of this year, as he was considering a presidential bid, he had unanimous support in the room.The only actual names and actual statements were that Cain was fair and professional. There are no names, dates or any solid evidence whatsoever for the innuendo, vague comments and phantom female employees that settled for 5 figures.
Do not be fooled. this is NOT a leftist attack.
The Republican elites are clearly spooked big time by Herman Cain, who has catapulted into shocking leads in the Iowa, South Carolina and Florida polls, and within striking distance of Romney in New Hampshire - a state Mitt has always assumed he would win by double digits. And so they are feeding this tripe to the Washington media vultures they alternatively joust with and seduce to maintain their corruptocracy. Mitt Romney and Rick Perry would fit right in with Karl Rove and his merry band of RINOs. Herman Cain would most defintely not. And so, he must be taken out.
But on what bait would the Leftist Media bite? Why of course - the same tired racist sexual stereotypes they used against Clarence Thomas, which one would have thought would be verboten in today's climate. But for the Left, a "Black Conservative" (just as with a Hispanic conservative - ask Marco Rubio), has committed "race betrayal" - a capital offense. So they are more than happy to play along.
Conservatives need to remember well how those elites on our side have conspired with the Leftist press to try and take down this great American, Herman Cain. They need to be swept from control of the GOP, once and for all. As Vito Corleone would say: "this I will not forgive".
It will speak volumes as to which Conservative GOP Presidential candidates stand up for Herman on Monday or Tuesday, and who/which one(s) would be eerily quiet or not show their face(s).
Yes, I had a woman claim sexual harassment at a company I worked at because I told her she needed to wear her company shirt in the remote location that I would see her at. It was dealing with MGM studios and just not proper business. I persisted and told the main office as she would not listen. So she lied to the management. THey did not fire me but kept me away from her.
I hope Cain comes out swinging and kills this graciously.
Found my sign to protest liberals. Perfect!
Thats right chump, you were talking behind my back.
“I would pray to God that you would secede. No more Dallas Cowboys, no more Texas Rangers, no more illiterate morons who claim to speak for conservatives when they couldn’t even tell you why the Alamo is important to US History.”
“I’m at the point now where if we could vote on a National Stage a state out of the union it would be Texas and probably 80% of America would support the vote. You’ve produced nothing but crappy soap operas!!! Take Good Ol’ Amnesty Rick and Ron Paul back and secede from the Union I’d even donate to the cause.”
Bless your heart.
He should not have done it as that was a passionate and powerful statement by Justice Thomas. That is where it belongs.
His comments about people being heartless about the illegals’ tuition and some other stuff is not encouraging. I suppose I could force myself to vote for him if I have no choice. But that’s about all the enthusiasm I can muster.
I want someone who is strongly conservative, with fire, who hates to compromise. Who wants to win - not just the presidency, but be victorious over the evil left which is destroying our Constitutional Republic. That person is not Perry.
Wasn’t that same phrase used in regards to Clarence Thomas?
Who got banned? I was trying to figure it out, a bit late.
For your information NoLife, nobama ever got any thinking individual's blood boiling. That limped-d!cked, no-nothing, ne'er-do well, resulted in a resolute call-to-arms to defend our great country. To equate Herman Cain with the low-life that infests the White House is an insult to our fellow Freepers and those others who will keep their oaths (such as me) to defend our Constitution from Enemies Both Foreign And Domestic.
Thank you. That’s the nicest thing anyone’s said to me all day. Have a good evening.
I suppose you haven’t read any perry threads lately then. I swear they glow in the dark they have so much radioactive waste from the perry supporters who go nuclear trying to defend the defenseless.
Well hey, I’m just trying to help.
And if that’s the silliest thing Herman Cain ever said? Let’s get the instruments warmed up for Hail To The Chief.
Really you agree?
Would you prefer that all Texans be banned from Free Republic?
Herman Cain is going to receive the wrath of the MSM and America will now revolt on the MSM. Watch
Rick Perry is a disaster. Rick Perry is going nowhere. I know it, you know it.
We need a conservative.
When are we going to get drunk enough to call it a night eh? Am I going to have to tread on down to the wine cellar again?
Wish that those were the circumstances, my wife and I travel all over the country, staying at hotels in hovels across the nation, we were in Anchorage the first of Sept., it’d be 8:20 there now.
Hold it guys, I just got up 2 hours ago. I thought this was a sober forum. Sheesh!
I just think that it makes them look thin skinned and shallow as it does when ‘commander zero’ uses the race card. If Cain is the nominee he can expect a nuclear, scorched earth campaign from hussein.Look what they did to Sarah.
That’s why I stopped with the scolding at work of my idiot liberal friends. I now explain that maybe we can go another direction with utmost kindness.
I’m not sure anyone got banned although I’m sure it won’t be long. This thread is hilarious though, don’t you think.
Yes. Clarence Thomas said it during the Anita Hill hearings.
Well my FRiend put some eggs in the liquor, this thread could be a good one.
My old man, God rest his soul, used to call it a pick me up.
MEG33 to Dengar01
I would pray to God that you would secede. No more Dallas Cowboys, no more Texas Rangers, no more illiterate morons who claim to speak for conservatives when they couldnt even tell you why the Alamo is important to US History.
Im at the point now where if we could vote on a National Stage a state out of the union it would be Texas and probably 80% of America would support the vote. Youve produced nothing but crappy soap operas!!! Take Good Ol Amnesty Rick and Ron Paul back and secede from the Union Id even donate to the cause.
I read it to mean Texans are a sorry lot indeed..no place on a conservative forum...
Yeah. There are number of aquaintances that I just refuse to discuss politics with. They are deranged and no reality will convince them. I just hope they feel complacent enough on election day to sleep in.
It’s gonna peter out as the antagonizers have gone away. Herman Cain needs help and both sides of the establishment are attacking. Stupid, self-centered asshats need support in knowledge as they haven’t a clue.
Cain actually said that MONTHS ago JOKINGLY in response to a question. It wa a geneal statement and had nothing to do with this.
But THIS can’t be called anything BUT a high tech lynching and I hope politico pays a heavy, heavy price for it.
I would remind you that it was Governor Rick Perry himself who brought up the topic of secession originally during some impromptu comments he was making.
If you read Dengar01’s post #85 and somehow automagically did a translation which in your mind equated to him calling for “all Texans to be banned from Free Republic”, that suggests to me that you need to brush up on your own reading comprehension.
Nah. It’s an angry response to a troll. When the story broke about Rock Perry’s ‘racist rock’, most, if not all, of us were defending Perry from that slime and none of us ever would have said what’s been said about Herman Cain on this thread tonight by a perry supporter.
There is such a thing as common decency. mylife showed NONE. He got what he gave. No respect.
That’s a fact.
See now here’s where you’ve gone wrong, you’re trying to make too much sense.
I asked if you thought so as you seemed to agree with post 85.
If you agree with post 85.. the feeling you don’t like Texas or Texans is not unreasonable...
We recognize and defeat the enemy.
Yeah I know it was an older clip. He did sound serious, but I’ll try to listen again. I just don’t think calling this a lynching is helping him. According to a campaign spokesman there is ‘somehting’ to the story. May have been a shakedown.
After Santorum repeated the media distortions on Cain’s pro life stance, I don’t put anything past him. He was on my short list as a potential for me, but not no more.
It wasn’t suggested, but some people are drama queens.
If Mr. Cain takes the affirmative action route he has lost me. Stand up and be yourself.
True enough. What we have here is a ‘whodunit’. I’ve read (on another thread) a suggestion from one poster that based on a twitter feed from a Perry supporter, that they (the poster) thinks this points to Perry.
It’s still too early to effectively determine who the culprit(s) are.
One thing we can be sure of: whoever it is, they are scared sh*tless of Herman Cain.
You’re reading more into it than what was actually posted.
