Cain Versus the Lynch Mob

James Lewis

November 2, 2011

Hi Tech Lynching is here again! Shades of Justice Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill. They're going to play the same sadistic power game they lost with Justice Thomas. Well, let 'em try, but now they are facing a revived conservative media. This is a trial of strength. When Clarence Thomas was nominated to the Supreme Court he had few defenders. Today we have talk radio and the blogs.

As a morality play this looks like Snidely Whiplash against Little Nell. The Corporate Media are widely hated and distrusted, and not just by conservatives. They are so.... mean-spirited, blood-thirsty, and lynch-mob-like. They have all the moral refinement of mafia thugs. Justice Thomas was the first one to call them a "high tech lynch mob," and they were so shocked, they let off for long enough to get a decent Senate Judiciary vote.

Well, let "High Tech Lynch Mob" be their epitaph. We've had the Yellow Press, we've had the three-network monopoly, and now we have the Lynch Mob Pres.

How amazingly the liberals give themselves away -- especially when it comes to bullying human beings they think they own. Has it ever been more obvious that the left is out to turn people into slaves? Black slaves, women slaves, poor slaves, illegal immigrant slaves, and lately, grossly ignorant college student slaves, all the little brainwashees who are camping out (on command) to Occupy the filthy rich. Like their parents.

The latest stunt is 600,000 petition signatures demanding total forgiveness of college loans. That's a personal gift of up to $40,000.00 per year for four years, not including personal upkeep, dorm fees and condoms. Why don't they just come out and say "We demand $160,000.00 each"? We've seen the "Me generation."...

Yeah we got the “conservative media” to defend Cain...

Just check out Free Republic—a “conservative media outlet” it's full of so-called “conservatives” rooting for the MSM to take down Cain while piling on and yapping like jackals for pieces of Cain's corpse.

The trolls, Romney and Perry supporters in disguise and so on are here.

But I see a hi-tech lynching and have no stomach for it.

Hermain Cain is the real alternative to business as usual politics at this point and I would vote for him.

Really,Cain has been charged with nothing only accused by Leftist media whores and anonymous bimbos who said they were so “offended” by Cain it took money to make them feel better and now they have a chance to make even MORE money—big money if they can REALLY lie about Cain this time.
And we have Freepers saying yeah yeah git em git em!

Where have I played the race card?

I’m a Cain supporter and race has less than nothing to do with it. I don’t DO identity politics.

I hope that Herman Cain can sustain the courage and inner strength to stand up to the mob. I sure hope that conservatives around the world will support his stand wholeheartedly. This is the Abe Lincoln test, but it's also a character test for every decent American.

The author addresses a number of victims, Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, Michelle Bachmann, calls Romney "plastic" and predicts he'll be a target for his Mormonism.

The article lays it out flat:

The left is not a political philosophy. It's a seething mass neurosis.

So rather than openly debate the merits of Herman Cain's tax plan and Rick Perry's tax plan we have--this week--the nothingburger of Herman's hand held at the height of his wife's head--sometime in the 'nineties--

While Obama arms the Sinaloa Cartel and sweeps the secular regimes of the Middle East to allow Iran to orchestrate a ring of peril around Israel--and of course our strategic dependence on foreign oil.

Would that we could dynamite the Obama moratorium on domestic oil and gas exploration.

I think Cain and Perry both get that the last thing we need are windmills and solar money-laundering scams.

Gas doubled in price under this president. That alone is half the problem.

The other half is solved by diverting a river through the Augean Stables of Il Douche's Executive Enemas.

And on the subject of lynchings--and Thomas--look at Kagan and Sotomayor, the face of seething socialist disdain for any constitutional or natural law constraint on the iron fist of fascism.

There's nothing progressive about this enemy.

It's more dangerous than that NSDAP maniac or any Moscow Map-Plotter.

In a sense Rove is allied with the Castle. Krauthammer, too, is helping Kafka write this Desperate Year chapter.

But the Empire is burning, the smell of death surrounds it.

All the shrieking fairies and all the carping harpies
Can't put Politics As Usual back together again.

Burn, Baby, Burn.

Condi Rice and Colin Powell are both RINO’s (or “Eisenhower Republicans”) but both got called every name from “Oriole” to “Lawn Jockey.” Democrats believe they own African Americans and any black who publicly disputes that will pay a price.

The money and support is pouring in for Herman Cain, but we cannot slow down now. Please help him by donating at http://www.hermancain.com/

Also to help join the buzz about Herman go to facebook.com and “like” him. In just the last week he has jumped 13% or 42000 with an impressive 10,000 in the last 24 hours. Make no mistake Karl Rove is watching Herman’s “likes” and so is Romney who gained just 1500 since last Tuesday. THIS is the way to stick it to the GOP establishment! Please tell your family and friends to “like” Herman as well.

Men in executive positions in business can easily be victims of women. Fifteen years ago, I worked for a small company in Western New York State and the CEO discovered that his accountant was embezzling money ($38K) from the business (ordering stuff and having it shipped to her house). When confronted with the evidence, she told the CEO that if he didn’t drop the case and give her a generous severance package that she’s contact the board of directors and claim that she had been having an affair with him. Bottom line, he was innocent; she got to keep the $38K in merchandise and got a 6 month severance package to boot.
For all I know, Cain may have been faced with the same raw deal scenario.

I think most on FR totally support Cain and can see through this BS lynching by the leftist scum in this country.

I’d rather the Cain detractors leave FR.

James Lewis is my favorite contributor to American Thinker. He was fiercely for Sarah Palin. His columns are keepers.

There are a number of candidates I like. Bachmann is one, Santorum is one, even Paul, for all his occasional goofiness, would be a vastly better President than the one we’ve got. None of them is doing well. Cain is. He seems to be the one conservative candidate who can impede Mitt’s path to his anointed nomination. That’s why he has to be taken down — and way too many FReepers are complicit in the effort.

So I was talking about you. Have to remember...smoothsailing aka friend of Leftist MSM and hater of Cain... Ok,got it!

Cain is not my first choice, but I don't like what is being done to him. That's why I started this thread.

Calling me a Leftist says far more about you than it ever will about me.

And I repeat, if you want to gripe about Free Republic, do it somewhere else.

Condi Rice and Colin Powell are both RINO’s (or “Eisenhower Republicans”) but both got called every name from “Oriole” to “Lawn Jockey.” Democrats believe they own African Americans and any black who publicly disputes that will pay a price.
The leftist faggots who draw political cartoons for The Slimes and other branches of the International Pravda Newspaper chain, used to draw Condi with big fat lips and a huge buck-toothed overbite. They were disgusting. And now she's on their side. She should be ashamed of herself.

I don't mind them criticizing Cain—heck that's politics if you have your own dog in the fight.

It's how they join a Leftist attack and try to validate the obvious smear...

When the other candidates were put down it was the result of other Republicans trying to get ahead of them.
This thing is of pure Leftist or RINO origin and those here who start out with “I like Cain BUT...” and then go on to echo the Leftist talking points...

Got no use for them.

Just prior to these allegation, I wondered what the media would dig up or sensationalize about Cain. These allegations are nothing compared to Bill Clinton's actions.

IIRC, there were no headlines regarding the gay allegations involving Obama.

It’s one thing if people are criticizing Cain or any other candidate on policy. But those who are helping in this smear are doing themselves and their candidates no good.

Hermain Cain carries a certain practicality that I haven't seen in a candidate in years. I think he would scrap usual politics and get the country in motion once again.

Screw the usual politics. That only helps the politicians.
