Open Letter To Herman Cain From A Fellow Black Conservative
LloydMarcus.com ^ | 11-3-2011 | Lloyd Marcus

Posted on 11/03/2011 12:28:00 PM PDT by Lloyd Marcus

Dear Herman Cain,

Thank you for your courageous decision to run for president as a conservative Republican. I am sure you anticipated opposition from the left. But, no one could have possibly anticipated the current level of intense hatred and vitriolic desire to politically tie a rope around your neck and drag your black bludgeoned dead carcass through the streets in the mud. Wow! Lord help us.

I thank you because your decision to run is much bigger than you. At a time when something has gone terribly wrong in the black community; 70% black high school dropout rate and 73% out of wedlock births, black youths need to see a man such as you; one of character and self reliance.

Your remarkable life story equals a nuclear bomb of truth being thrown into the black community. Your success derails the “you cannot succeed without us and our programs” rhetoric Democrats have been selling to blacks for the past 50 years. Desperate and frantic, the Democrat's clarion call to their minions and the liberal media is politically, Herman Cain MUST DIE!

Channel surfing, I was stunned, shocked and outraged. The same white liberal pundits who, without a shred of evidence, declared the tea party racist, were all over TV ravenously “high tech lynching” you, a black man for being a conservative republican. These pious, self proclaimed most tolerant among us, viciously attacked you in every way from your character to your intellect. It was shameful and evil. It made me extremely angry.

The Tea Party has grown tremendously, not only in numbers, but in depth over the past two and half years. Tried and true liberal media “hit” tactics no longer work. We began as fragmented bans of frustrated citizens fearful of the direction Obama and company is taking our country. Today, the Tea Party has developed into numerous organized groups, an army of patriots; well prepared, well-informed and ready for political battle.

Along with our earned political sophistication comes total awareness of the pathetically transparent attempt to knock-you-out of the presidential race via ridiculously weak charges of sexual harassment. Again, displaying their arrogance and shameful hypocrisy, the same people who are attacking you rallied around their beloved poster boy of “proven” sexual harassment, Bill Clinton.

While the original source of the political sexual harassment attack on you is debatable, the left has joyfully picked up the ball and run with it, piling on daily with unsubstantiated embellishments.

Rest assured my brother, their efforts to destroy you are proving fruitless, as evidenced by the rise in financial contributions to your presidential campaign.

Please forgive me for presuming to speak for the Christians in our tea party family when I say we are praying for you. I personally believe and offer this scripture to you, “No weapon formed against you shall prosper”.

So, let the evil left do their thing. Let them relentlessly labor at their, “got to take out the n-----” campaign. I gleefully report, “It ain't workin'!”

These knucklehead liberal political hacks and their media are stuck in the past. They erroneously still believe they set the rules, can successfully “take-out” our candidates and can anoint our candidates. They are mistaken. There's a new, John Wayne style, sheriff in town called the Tea Party; kickin' butt and takin' names.

Herman Cain, bottom line; we, your Tea Party family have got your back! Hang in there and keep the faith. Millions are behind your efforts 100%.

This letter is not a Tea Party formal endorsement of you as our presidential nominee. It is meant to comfort you with the knowledge that judging from the character of patriots I have met at rallies across America on five national Tea Party Express bus tours, we firmly stand in solidarity with you, our brother patriot, against a vile sold-out to liberalism and socialism liberal media and Democratic Party.

In conclusion, I encourage you, my fellow black conservative patriot brother, “Run Herman, run!”

Excellent letter, Lloyd. The smear campaign is in full swing and what irritates me most is the number of supposed conservatives, both well known and not so, who have jumped on the wagon, including some here who do so as an opportunity to advance their own candidate. We don’t need the left to destroy us when we’re so good at it ourselves.

Thank you. I agree with everything you wrote. Last Saturday, when I met Mr. Cain, I told him that I was praying for him. Little did I know that he would need those prayers so much.

Ah, a breath of fresh air. Lloyd Marcus has an attitude and POV much better than that of Fred Robinson (I think that is his name), another black conservative who recently wrote a piece ripping outspoken blacks who aren’t “progressive” enough for his taste.

Herman was recently asked when and why he decided to run for this nomination and thus seek the White House position. His answer was pure Herman: He decdied when he saw how badly Barack Obama was running this Republic and what Obama's policies were doing and would do to this nation of free enterprise.

Herman Cain is sincere and very capable. That he would tolerate the vermin now snapping at his heels tells me he is also a greater man than I, because I'd have verbally dismissed with exctreme prejudice a few of these vermin and walked away from this obscenity by now. ... And I'm still a Newt supporter.

I am a former news junkie, but no more. I have quit cold turkey. The media and their pundits have broken the public’s trust by repeatedly putting forth lies as truth, and forcing their opinions on the American people and calling it news.

Shared this on my facebook. Thanks for writing it! I hope Cain will find it as inspiring as I did.

Wonderful letter, sir! This statement here gets to the heart of why I'm not allowing this latest mess to dissuade me from considering a Herman Cain candidancy:

Along with our earned political sophistication comes total awareness of the pathetically transparent attempt to knock-you-out of the presidential race via ridiculously weak charges of sexual harassment. Again, displaying their arrogance and shameful hypocrisy, the same people who are attacking you rallied around their beloved poster boy of “proven” sexual harassment, Bill Clinton.

And there it is.

"But, no one could have possibly anticipated the current level of intense hatred and vitriolic desire to politically tie a rope around your neck and drag your black bludgeoned dead carcass through the streets in the mud."

I did.

I know exactly what these people are capable of:

OUR ANCIENT FOE.

Their craft and power are great
And armed with cruel hate!

There is no limit to the depths to which they will sink.

HOWEVER--a man who has OVERCOME cancer, RACIAL DISCRIMINATION, poverty, and corporate America will also OVERCOME BIG BROTHER AND HIS RUTHLESS PROPAGANDA MACHINE!

WE SHALL OVERCOME!

Great letter, Lloyd. I hope Herman gets to read it.

Your comment "Desperate and frantic, the Democrat's clarion call to their minions and the liberal media is politically, Herman Cain MUST DIE! unfortunately appears to apply to many on our side of the aisle as well (even some here on FR).

Thank you Lloyd, and I am so pissed that I've sent Herman my third {small} donation since Monday.

This man survived stage 4 liver and colon cancer, he can take lies and ridicule from those sanctimonious racists on the left.

I saw Herman speak last summer 2010 at a TEA Party rally, and at the time I was a Sarah guy, but since my Lady {oh, is that a sexual harassing statement?} decided not to run I've been backing Herman.

I think there are millions of good Christians that will be praying for the Cain family, because I'm sure his wife and kids and especially the grandchildren, are going through hell and wondering what kind of savages have we become?

Wonderful letter, Lloyd! Thank you!!

These vicious attacks on Herman infuriate me! Either the b*tches come out on TV themselves and make the accusations, or everyone needs to STHU!

People come down on Herman for the way he’s handled this mess so far but they all need to ask themselves, “How well would I handle it if it happened to me in the same manner?”

I know I certainly wouldn’t handle it well. My temper’s like a nuclear blast when it’s set off. LOL!

Thanks for having Herman’s back. I’m right there with ya!

I'm so PO'd at the scumbags and the scumbag media for this virtual crucifixion of a good and decent man all because of his political beliefs, which are best defined as "common sense" in an ocean of liberal insanity.

I will stand by Herman Cain all the way to his swearing in come 2012 as POTUS.

I love you Lloyd for all you do and have done for the cause.

And you are of course right that it is especially treacherous for a black man to espouse conservative values.

But any GOP front runner would have had this brought out by the press. What has been reported are sexual harassment settlements that Mr. Cain’s employer apparently made in response to complaints against him.

And his and his team’s handling of it has been disingenuous and unacceptable.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I am really steamed over this!

The liberal/Marxist media is disgusting and vile. Look what they did to Dan Quail over the word “potato”. There was the** decades*** old DUI on Bush that they withheld to a few days before the election. They sent armies of reporters to rummage through Sarah Palin’s trash, and the attacks about whether Trig was her son were unconscionable! Unbelievable!

And....Where was the elite Ivy League indoctrinated Republican leadership? Answer: Too polite to get their manicures soiled, their blow dried hair mussed, or to show their radioactive bleach smiles.

But...Most disappointing has been the failure of our so-called **conservative** media. Gee! I know the liberal/Marxist media are garden slugs but, gee!, I expected the conservative media to vet Obama. ( Silly me!)

In the meantime, there is SILENCE from both the liberal/Marxist and so-called conservative media on the Larry Sinclair and Donald Young's murder, and the most unusually convenient murder of Leiutenant Quarles Harris Jr the night before he was to testify on Obama’s passport.
