Desperation: The High Tech Lynching of Uppity Herman Cain Begins

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".

Oh, I have, I have...that’s one reason I’ve gotten so good at spotting BS.

Everything is getting more and more - extreme. I need a laugh or two, I’ll check up on the new comments. Amazing how some idiots hate Cain. And make up smack.

Yeah, I didn’t get how Politico is an instrument of Perry, Romney, Rove and the RINO’s. Although, I am getting sick of Karl Rove. I love Cain’s story. I’d put it up against Obama’s any day!

Yeah. The question is whether it’s mittens or ricky. The conventional wisdom is on mittens. But this was hamfisted enough to have come from perrywinkle central.

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.

Actually, it might have been Perry’s camp.

Romney doesn’t stand to gain voters as much as Perry does.

We had a mentally ill employee sue over ADA in an attempt to get her job back. We paid her $40K to walk away.

Generally speaking in such matters, you save your big stuff for later in the campaign.

Yes...unless the RATs totally fear Cain being the nominee against their oppressor in chief.
