Skip to comments.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 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".
Get bent. I was answering Rennes Templar’s post, who was posting to Mazda77.
*Ping* to my #51. Looks like the troll just left the building.
Is this supposed to be the October suprise? Non-story.
You just dont get it do you pal?
I hate backstabbers
Dang it! Herman’s pulled the race card. Thought better of him. Didn’t like it when Clarence did it either.
Next thing you know they’ll have him picking the scabs off little kid’s knees, so desperate are they to get something on Herman Cain! Go Herman! I would love to have seen Schrieffer’s apology on CBS tonight.
I am going to say it again and this time in a military sense and I know you are aware of what that means.
“With all due respect” . . . . Were you doing a drinking game everytime the Eagles scored against the Cowboys?
You already said “good night”, now get lost.
It IS racism: from the true racists on the LEFT.
This brings me back to 1991. I’m very, very skeptical of these charges. IMHO, the burde of proof is on the accusers, but I expect that the MSM will slaim otherwise.
Along with all the "Independent" posters on Politco who make Karl Marx look like Ronald Reagan.
The Dems,their MSM and the RINOs will not let this go no matter how ridiculous and lame the story is.
Every question hurled at him from now on will be various versions of a mendacious premise such as, “Mr Cain,are you still a rapist!?!?”
He is going to have to use the Clinton,”We have already covered that and need to “move on.” Or,”No personal attack ever fed a hungry child.”
Please jump in a lake. My God you’re an obnoxious moron.
Do you deny his words?
\Your’re an obnoxious moron too.
Get out of here you wind bag, you’re a disgrace to this forum.
They got nothing this time. Watch for the fracture and the attempt to shift off of Obama. Obama owns it and he is a dictator. Watch the media hustle around and have the story everywhere. It’s coming
He’s drunk Carl, ignore him. He said ‘good night’ and like any drunken sot, he can’t find the exit.
Now he’ll whine about ‘Freeper Etiquette’.
I think this attack on Cain is BS.
All I wish to do is illustrate how folks her forgive anything he does and condemn Rick Perry’s even handed record of governance
Please answer me this, why is Rick Perry so much your choice that you actually get out of character to defend him.........
Yes I know you’re right, but dammit these trolls make me mad, can’t Jimmy Thompson get rid of them?
You still cant follow the simple rules of FR can you?
You’ve got to go behind peoples backs like a coward skulking in the shadows.
This attack on Herman Cain is coordinated and brought forth by the following, “Politico”, the Democrat Party establishment, The Republican Party establishment, the left-wing, Barack Hussein Obama, Karl Rove, the left-wing media, etc. Why? Very simple!!! If, say, Herman Cain becomes the POTUS candidate for the GOP and selects Marco Rubio for his VP running mate, he devastates, massively defeats Obama at the polls, come November, 2012. But, he also, and more importantly dismantles the current Democrat Party, who, IMHO will suffer massive political losses at the ballot box. Mr. Cains election would be anothe massive change in American direction and politics. Coupled with the votes of Whites, Blacks, Hispanics, other minorities, etc., Mr. Cain and Mr. Rubio will destroy the very fabric of “special groups” that hold the Democrat Party in power. Have you all noted the recent heavy attacks on Marco Rubio by the Washington Post newspaper. The political elites are frightened out of their minds, and, as such will do anything to destroy both Herman Cain & Marco Rubio. Who is the racist, the destroyer, the hater, now , America??? A story with no names, no facts, no substantiation is not a story, IMHO!!!
That’s Mr. Thompson around here buddy.
I favor Perry because he actually has a record of even handed governance.
As to the out of Character business, I am just trying to rub some noses in it.
“The Roar Of The Masses Could Be Farts’
In your general direction. You are so deserving.
Herman Cain didn’t write this article - and his campaign said nothing about race in their response to these allegations.
Even handed? Partly conservative, partly liberal?
Let us wipe away Mr Cains privileged status. I loved the smoking ad, but Cain has been getting a free pass as far as scrutiny.
The man is a great speaker, he gets the blood boiling, but so did Obama.
We need a leader, not a shyster.
So I was called anti-Texan by some Perrybots, called heartless and here is "mylife" a FReeper who says Cain has "privileged status", gets a "free pass".
Hey buddy take the white cloak and hood and throw it in the fire otherwise you don't belong here.
I met Obama and even he could debate someone as stupid as you to dust. You are using every racist tactic used since the end of the Civil War to attack our best bet of tossing Barry and Moochelle out of the White House.
Since I have a belief that roughly 95% of FReepers from Texas support Rick Perry because he is from Texas I want you to prove me wrong.
Ann Richards vs. Sarah Palin for Governor?
Kay Baylee Hutchinson vs. Herman Cain for Senate?
I would bet my house that Richards and Hutchinson would be your picks. Why? Because you think your state is somehow above the other 49 states. Rick Perry had it right about secession. 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.
Instead we'd get Spanglish, pro-Amnesty crap, and why Texas is indeed Tejas and belongs to Mexico and Sam Houston is just a white devil, that's what is being taught in your schools that have your so called "students" preach the Mexican Pledge of Allegiance while spitting on the US Flag.
There are two words FT but I'll be kind and just let you defend your insanity, continue to call me heartless and defend your trashing of a black candidate because your candidate sucks beyond all belief!!!
So mylife are you attacking Herman Cain because he happens to be African American? Or are you attacking him because he isn't from Texas?
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.
Two words, FT, but in order to be PC that could be For Texas :D Certaintly it would not be the word describing "For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge. That'd be too easy :)
90% conservative 10% liberal
Look at the man’s record
OK, I’ll leave it alone but you need to stand back and watch the Obama-Perry debates in your head and tell me I am not a dead man by 2014.
That must be it. I was thinking “even handed” as in partly illegal/partly legal.
Look, Perry’s got a record he can win with or he can fail with. It’s become obvious that he’s got supporters on this forum that are maniacal to say the least. I’m trying to provide a balance.
I cannot post as Mrs. C. does, (I’m not sure anyone can), and it’s turning people off far more than it turns them on to Perry, thank God.
If you are honest about your opinions then you would see that these efforts on behalf of your chosen candidate aren’t helpful to him, in fact they are hurting him more than his debate performances.
You prove my point.
According to the article it’s the rinos. Just a bad move to defend himself in such a manner imho and the author isn’t doing him any favors. More will come out of course or not. I suspect (hope) that it was just a shakedown.
mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.
Good night Carl.
My only intent here was to show that Cain gets a pass on anything that is leveled at him and that Perry gets beaten up just for smiling.
this mylife idiot is going to get us all banned, and it’s still Sunday here where I am.
Governor Perry was given his shot and he wasn’t ready. Don’t blame the FReepers for that. Maybe he can get ready.
Never mind that he is an Uncle Tom carrying the water for the GOP.
Politico’s Roger Simon: Being Racist Helps in Republican Primaries
October 30, 2011
There are times when I’m sickened by what I see so-called journalists do on television.
Sunday was one of those times when Politico’s Roger Simon, appearing on CNN’s Reliable Sources, said being “a little bit racist perhaps, gives you good bona fides in a Republican primary. It shows them you’re on the same side as they are” (video follows with transcript and commentary):
He used the ‘high tech lynching’ statement. Heard him on the radio tonite. Just sayin’ I think using that will hurt him.
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.
