Four Lily White Liberals Smear a Black Man
American Thinker ^ | 11/02/2011 | Peter Heck

Just as Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain predicted, he has become the most recent victim of the race-baiting left's high-tech lynching of prominent, conservative black men. Days before the Cain sexual harassment smear emerged from the sewers of liberal trash journalism, MSNBC's Martin Bashir hosted contributor Karen Finney who proclaimed that conservatives only liked Cain because, "they think he's a black man who knows his place." As Bashir actually thanked her on-air for making such an offensive and ignorant remark (far from being a submissive position, conservatives are supporting Cain in his effort to ascend to the highest office in the land), Finney granted, "I know that's harsh, but that's how it sure seems to me."

That's an interesting moment of candor since it now sure seems to any American paying attention that Finney and her fellow liberals dislike Cain because they think he's a black man who doesn't know his place. Diversity of thought amongst minorities -- particularly blacks -- is forbidden in the church of liberalism. Having constructed their entire political kingdom on the back of the dollars-for-votes dependency model, self-made black men who stray from the liberal plantation and threaten to carry the empowering message of personal (not government) reliance to throngs of minorities currently under the left's spell of entitlement, must be dealt with severely. Destroying them professionally and personally is a small price to pay to keep the plantation thriving.

And so, with that greater good in mind, four lily white liberals (Jonathan Martin, Maggie Haberman, Anna Palmer and Kenneth Vogel) authored a hit piece on the prominent conservative businessman in a desperate attempt to smear him out of contention for the Republican presidential nomination.

The hyenas aren't gonna let this go - Rove, Kudlow, etc. the establishment pukes, are saying Cain hasn't effectively addressed the charges; on the other hand the women's attornies are publically charging him with breaking the gag agreement.

Classic no-win situation. Cain needs to go on the offensive, hard.

“they think he’s a black man who knows his place.”

Only someone with a bigoted mindset could come up with a comment like that.

I'm sick of Rove, Carl Cameron.

And I'm getting sick of Brit Hume, who I used to respect.

In fact, I'm getting sick of Fox. Who needs "friends" like these?

I’d bet you’d be hard pressed to find a top executive in this country who has not had allegations of sexual harassment leveled against him. It’s an easy way to get a big paycheck.

Given that I know a few personally I'd take that bet. It is not as common as that. It does happen and yes it is a payday but it's not common at all. It just gets a lot of publicity and human relations departments harp on it to protect companies from the silly suits you allude to.

But to extrapolate from that the notion that most top execs get sexual harrassment lawsuits is a reach...I'm not aware of any amongst the 20-30 men and woman I know who manage 50M to over 1B dollar outfits here in Middle TN

My father who ran a 40M sales outfit did have a lower ranking guy in Memphis accused once but it was quickly proven to be what you described..a fishing expedition. They got paid nothing and the accuser was charged with filing false charges repeatedly and her attorney cited but not disbarred. (1992) Dad carried insurance for that afterwards...yes...you can buy sexual harrassment indemnification

Just goes to prove that sometimes Fact does take on Fiction.

[Atticus says]
"The witnesses for the state, with the exception of the sheriff of Maycomb County, have presented themselves to you gentlemen, to this court, in the cynical confidence that their testimony would not be doubted, confident that you gentlemen would go along with them on the assumption – the evil assumption – that all Negroes lie, that all Negroes are basically immoral beings, that all Negro men are not to be trusted around our women, an assumption one associates with minds of their caliber."
From the novel 'To Kill a Mocking Bird', by Harper Lee

The liberal masks are falling away over the Cain threat, and beneath we see the scowl of Ku Klux Klanners.

So have dozens, maybe hundreds of military officers ever since the integration of females into what were formerly all male specialties. This has been especially true in the Navy and Coast Guard. Ship captains have had their careers ruined by what later turned out to be false or unfounded allegations of sexual misconduct.

The attack on Cain certainly isn’t the first of its kind.

The original high-tech lynching of conservative Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas for the same stereotypical allegations, the constant attacks on “Uncle Tom” economists Thomas Sowell and Walter E. Williams, the belligerent nastiness directed at self-proclaimed welfare brat turned conservative champion Star Parker, and the persistent threats faced by tea-party Congressman Allen West all stand as stark depictions of the regard liberals have for blacks who dare to think differently than them.

Good piece by Peter Heck, thanks for the ping.

He sure is right about Sowell and other conservatives. I have a google alert for Sowell and some letters to the editor in newspapers that carry his column are unbelievable.

They sound like they’re written by ignorant leftists who hate Dr. Sowell just because he’s conservative. Many that write are so uninformed on the subject of his columns they’re comical.
