Desperation: The High Tech Lynching of Uppity Herman Cain Begins

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".

I am more than disappointed in Perry's State Coordinator, if this is true.

This is interesting. From Perry's Arizona State Coordinator:

Yeah, saw that earlier... what did "Victoria" know and when did she know it?

The whole thing reeks of a setup to me. I find it hard to believe this wouldn't have come out earlier, like when Cain was running for Senate in GA.

Excellent post, Jeff. The best they can come with in the intro to the article is “(language) allegedly filled with innuendo or personal questions of a sexually suggestive nature.

That could mean anything.

The question could be: “Are you married?”

Think about it, and that could be construed by a feminazi as “innuedo” and as “sexually suggestive.”

In fact, the could file a complaint that simply said “innuendo” and “sexually suggestive” without EVER giving details.

"Politico sicks [ sic ] no less than FOUR reporters onto vague nearly 20 year old allegations to smear new GOP Frontrunner Herman Cain."

I'm no grammar nazi but that's fairly rank.

Also about two sentences into the Politico article, I started substituting "Clinton" for "Cain" -- instant nothingburger!

And if I were Cain, that's what I'd do, double-down like Clinton did, and I'd even tell the MSM to their face that's the blueprint -- "nothing here, drag a dollar thru a trailer park, move on, bigger fish to fry"...you didn't stop Clinton and you can't stop me.

The attack by Politico is blatant racism. Black men have historically been characterized - unfairly - as abusers of women...


...as well as having unusual sexual appetites, and lack of sexual self-control.

The racist perception can lead not only to political exploitation, but to original false allegations.

Usage is "sic" or "siccing", the latter preferable here, particularly by turning passive into active; "sics" less preferred.

“settled for 5 figures”.

Organizations have been known to pay people to go away after their accusations were shown to be without merit. It allows the individual a modicum of dignity while they make a quick dash for the exit. $10,000 oughta cover their embarassment in making fools of themselves. Yeah, that's the ticket.

Then the final shot would have been to ask where is all of this indignation about Obama’s chain smoking stinking up the White House.

EXACTLY! Reports are that it could be up to two packs a day. You never hear a word about this from the liberal media.

“And still... we have yet to hear from one former girlfriend (or boyfriend).... one former employer... one former co-worker... one former student... one former classmate .... one former teammate... one former neighbor... or one former... anything.... of Barack Hussein Obama. Mmm Mmm Mmm.”

Except for...Larry Fitzgerald, who says he has proof that the Obozo smoked Crack with him, and performed ORAL SEX on him in a Limo.
Amazing that the media doesn’t think those “unsubstantiated charges” are important enough to splash all over their newscasts, and front pages.

Despicable pigs. I have a goal/dream that we can do so much damage to the MSM while electing Mr. Cain, that no one except the most hard core leftist will ever believe anything they say. I hope in 2013 if Brian Williams comes on the NBC Evening News, and says the sky is blue, millions get up and walk outside to check.

Why would you think this? Don’t remember Clarence Thomas? The Bush administration was surprised that the Democrats would go full tilt racist, but they didn’t hesitate. Dragged in an embittered ex-girlfriend and rewarded her with a return from exile.

That is exactly why the socialists are pulling out all of the stops. Cain is like Palin in that he puts the lie to the foundation of the democrats, that they care about women and minorities and that the only way to help minorities is through big government.
