Desperation: The High Tech Lynching of Uppity Herman Cain Begins
Real Feminist ^ | 10-31-2011 | Sheri Urban

Real Feminist

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 Hill’s 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

Cain’s 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.

“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.

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.

The man is a great speaker, he gets the blood boiling, but so did Obama.

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.

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.

ABSOLUTELY. IF (and this is a hypothetical 'IF') the originator of this smear is within the GOP, as I see it the suspects line up this way:

Mitt Romney = has the most to gain from a Cain crash-and-burn.

Rick Perry = gains like Romney if Cain were to withdraw, plus Perry no doubt feels it is personal after Cain said he would not accept a VP slot on a Perry ticket.

Rick Santorum/Michele Bachmann = no true motivation as I see it, UNLESS it were to throw the dice on picking up former Cain supporters.

Newt Gingrich = I rule him out. He would never stoop this low, IMHO.

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).

They ALL need to be put in the spotlight and asked where they stand regarding this smear attack.

It is going to get uglier, believe me.

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.

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.
