"A Black Man Who Knows His Place"
Townhall.com ^ | October 31, 2011 | Bob Beauprez

Posted on 10/31/2011 9:27:47 AM PDT by Kaslin

Karen Finney is not just any Democrat; she was the spokeswoman for the Democrat National Committee, served in the Clinton White House, was the press secretary for Hillary Clinton's New York Senate race, and is a veteran of four Presidential Campaigns.

Tasked with analyzing Herman Cain's surge in the GOP's Presidential campaign for MSNBC last week, Finney offered up the most outrageous, insulting, demeaning single sentence we have ever heard – particularly by someone who supposedly speaks for an entire national political party.

"I think he makes that white Republican base of the party feel okay, feel that they're not racist because they can like this guy, I think they like him because he’s a black man who knows his place."MSNBC's Karen Finney on Herman Cain

Finney said this about a man who overcame very humble beginnings and every other road block life threw in front of him.  He became a highly successful business executive, led a trade association, was the Chairman of the Board of the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank, a popular Radio personality, and now a leading contender to be the Republican nominee for President of the United States. 

In her attempt to disparage both Herman Cain and the Republican Party, Finney actually told us volumes about herself and the Democrat Party for which she was the designated singular voice.

ther democrats started the kkk to prevent blacks from voting.

Barack Obama could become the first African-American president because he’s light-skinned and because he did not speak with a Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.
Senator Harry Reid

The party of Jefferson Davis (definitely dead) and Exalted Kleagle Robert Byrd (still dead, but may walk tonight) is projecting again.

Actually, isn’t the white Republican base ( RINOs,Establishment,and otherwise the pub elite)behind Romney?
Wait, maybe the base is racist!
They support a squishy white guy who could be a Democrat over a solid conservative that happens to be black.

Go Cain!

Let me fix this.

"I think he makes that white Democrat base of the party scared as hell. They are racist and hate this guy. I think they hate him because he’s a black man who does not know his place is on the Democrat plantation."

Nothing scares the left more than a black conservative. Blacks who don’t keep their place on the liberal reservation are dangerous because others might follow them. Imagine that, blacks who are free to think and reason on their own. The left can’t have that.

Let me get this Orwellian logic straight.

1. The Teaparty supports Cain.
2. The most conservative in the Republican party support Cain.
3. The Teaparty and Conservative Republicans are Racists.
4. Because they are racists they support the Conservative Black Man??????????????????

I am confused to say the least.

Funny coming from the Democrat plantation party where any minority who even thinks of leaving the plantation is excoriated.

Karen Finney does prove that the Democrat plantation is well-stocked with hoes.

Cain could take this more personal than you’d think. Cain left the Democrats, so goes his account, because they were so mule headed about insisting they politically owned American Negros. That would be like Republicans insisting they politically owned all white people. Cain’s place sure ain’t on the Democrat plantation and he could deal them a zinger or two to make sure the Democrats don’t forget it.

What impeccable credentials! Not only does her nonsensical, racist and judgmental statement provide a window into her own soul, but it attests to the fact that she has learned well the cynical views of those whom she has represented!

She has steeped well in Democrat nonsense.

I hope Cain is about to lead a “slave revolt” — right off of the Democrat plantation and never to come back.

The Beauprez piece is about a strategy the democrats will be using directed particularly to the black community. While the Republican primary has not yet cuiled down to two protagonists it seems the democrats feel Cain will not be in the finals.

Once that happens what they will be doing is claim Cain is out because of his race. Democrats have already set the stage by claiming “Cain’s not serious” a theme which is a trap that unfortunately Cains’s Republican opponents have eagerly picked up on and are repeating unwisely..

There are Obama Rat trolls here on Free Republic masquerading as conservatives.

These trolls have a clear intent to bring down republican candidates who have risen in the polls. Obama Rat trolls should be identified and outted.

First with Bachman, then with Perry, now with Cain (and of course, always with Romney), the Obama Rats use a deceptively simple approach.

They camp out on a thread that seems to support a candidate, Cain for example.

They use one-liners and ad hominem insults to attack that candidate, while implying that they support another candidate, for instance, Perry. Then when one visits the Perry threads, that same poster rarely, if ever, appears. When he does, the appearance is luke warm, and mainly directed toward tearing down some other candidate. When challenged, the Obama Rat trolls avoid supporting the candidate they imply that they support.

In addition, the Obama Rats seem to use many of the same talking points, often referring to Mike Huckabee, or some other candidate from the past. They use virulent attacks on individual posters, who disagree with them, to try to drive that poster off the thread.

One need only research the history of comments from suspected Obama Rats to see the pattern.

Obviously, we each have different views on the candidates. Those differing views are worthy of debate.

However, unless a poster starts finding positive points with a candidate, any candidate, with as much vigor as he tears down other candidates, then he is just another shrill Obama Rat troll, not worthy of debate. He should be identified and outted.

Do not underestimate the Obama machine. The following link compares the relative internet capability of that machine utilizing paid staff on Twitter to the significantly lesser capability of each of the republican candidates. Is it even reasonable to presume that the Obama Rats would not have the same capability to influence Free Republic?

“ther democrats started the kkk to prevent blacks from voting.”

The original KKK sprang up naturally during the Reconstruction Era because of abuses by occupying forces and carpetbaggers. No white trash need apply.

It faded out of existence after Reconstruction ended.

The 20th century organization that approprated their name was established by white trash in reaction to the upward mobility of Negroes, Catholics, Jews, and anybody else that hacked them off.

There is more truth about the original KKK in “Gone with the Wind” and “Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All” than in all the history books now in print.

And that is what is being said among most black voters.

Which is why Cain is going to have an up hill battle against Obambi. I think he can win, but if he does he will be vilified in the press.

Romney can easily pay off anybody else's campaign finance debt. Sometimes you do that to get them off the board. Christine O'Donnell is probably in that category. Same with Sharron Angle (plus she's from "that part of the world", as is Joe Miller.

Very smart of Romney to do that.

Now, why were you unaware of these practices? Did you not realize that Romney intended to BUY the nomination ~ no way he can get the votes ~ he only has 1/5 of Republican support.

Yesterday morning on Fox News America’s News HQ Eric Shawn was talking to 2 pundits. One as a conservative and the other one was a liberal. The liberal insisted Herman Cain had no chance and that Romney would get the nomination. He also said that the arrogant pos occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania would get reelected. Of course they want Romney because they know that no many will vote for him

Yup ~ I worked in a combination of both a government agency (with typical bureaucratic politics) and large operating company (with typical corporate and field operations politics) called the United States Postal Service.

They have the world's largest corporate fleet, were for many years the largest employer in America, and largest civilian employer in the world, and operate just about everywhere and have to deal with everyone.

There are top end field managers there who could cut throats with the best of 'em. Their cousins at headquarters were just as bad.

Cain's history of employment is similar but he worked for relatively small organizations ~ compared to USPS. Romney and Huntsman have comparable experience but I don't think Huntsman feared getting fired or eased out.

Politicians have it easy in comparison.

of appreciation for the Dem plantation set up for constructive failure.
