The savage lynching of Herman Cain
The Washington Times ^ | November 9, 2011 | Eric Golub

Posted on 11/09/2011 11:14:40 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

The lynching of Herman Cain has reached heights comparable with the oak tree that liberals wish they could hang minority conservatives from.

In the great tradition of Clarence Thomas and Sarah Palin, the left has decided to add Herman Cain to the list of those who need to be set on fire and hung from a tree simply for existing and breathing while being a minority conservative.

Anonymous women have accused Herman Cain of bad behavior of an inappropriate sexual nature. Now a woman has finally decided to come forward. To make the situation even more highly charged and explosive, bottom feeder Gloria Allred is representing the newest woman pretending to be a victim.

Perhaps Anita Hill was not available.

I don’t care what this newest woman being coached by America’s worst man-hater not named Hillary Clinton has to say. She waited almost two decades until Mr. Cain was at his highest peak to date and then came forward for her fifteen minutes of fame.

As for those trying to destroy Mr. Cain, every single liberal critic should be taken into a room with nothing but white walls, a small television set, and a VCR with a videotape of Bill Clinton....

DON’T LET THE LEFT DO IT AGAIN

What can we do to stop it? All we can do is stand by Herman and keep moving forward. If you have any suggestions, I’m open to hearing them.

They kept Governor Sarah Palin out of the race. I believe her life was threatened, although I, of course, have no evidence of that. They know Gov. Perry is done and that Gov. Huntsman, Sen. Santorum, Representatives Bachmann and Paul are our Congressman Kucinich. They also know that we’re not going to nominate a thrice-married adulterer. That leaves Gov. Romney, the guy they’ve wanted all along.
It’s 2008 again. Suggestions? Vote for the most conservative candidate with any chance to win in your state’s primaries or caucuses.

Just thought of this now. Herman was chairman of the NRAss. Why do we still not know the nature of the complaints and the results of the investigations of the 2 incidents that we are aware of ?

Suggestion? Keep donating to Cain. He's what America needs: witty, sense of humor, thinks deeply and with a long vision... understands economics... is confident... He can heal this country and inaugurate a new Morning in America.

The charges - I'm not sure I would, put in his position, respond to reporters any differently than, "I'm not going to respond to baseless allegations without evidence. Next question, please."; "As I just said, I'm not going to waste time responding to lies based. Next." See, the Anita Hill approach worked 20 years ago but the electorate is wise to it now. Sexual harassment is nothing more than the race card played turned 90 degrees and played along the gender axis. Voters who tout this as a disqualification are those who are supporting Obama anyways. If anything, it inoculates and strengthens Cain moving forward.

In all seriousness, what proof is there of 2 separate situations at the NRA? Is there any confirmation of this other than hearsay, vague claims, or biased reports?

You know, that has the unmistakeable stench of extortion. True to southern form, Cain called some belle “darling” and she went forward with the complaint as a means to a quick “score,” knowing that the big guy’s reputation insofar as leadership impacts the entire organization would be protected. Easy Peasy.

BTW, it looks like Cain's website has been hacked.

It looks like one of my websites when it's in the early development phase and I'm testing layout and links.

You can add "/index.html" after it and get another half-functional page with several "content not found"s but also with "Truth about 999" and a menu bar that's improperly aligned and doesn't work.

I beg your pardon, I am asking serious questions. I do not have the time or energy for online rigamorole. Rick Santorum’s resume and record are widely available. If you do not know the results of these investigations just say so.

At the Steve King do tonight the three fellows from respectively Rick Perry, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum were rather lonely-looking.

The biggest reaction was the call to rip out Obamacare and Dodd-Frank and a host of abominations foisted upon us by Obama, Reid and Pelosi.

All Obama can do is read his teleprompter; all Axelrod can do is holler for more bimbos in the boiler.

At some point Scotty has to complain, "Captain, I canna hold her together much longer. . . ."

A formidable team.

They would be if they could get elected.

Cain's "princess Pelosi" remark alone, amid sexual harassment allegations, will help destroy any ticket with him on it. Others, here, insist Newt has too much baggage.

At this rate, we should start preparing ourselves for four more years of "fundamental transformation."

Mr Cain has said 2. The 2nd is murky but may be what Rush spoke of in a fair amount of detail last Thurs., was written up in Redstate and Rightscoop and may be what Wilson or Anderson witnessed.

If the exact same charges were lobbed at Obama four years ago, you`d see not dozens, not hundreds, but thousands of op-eds about `no proof,q and `the racist American nightmare of a black man coming for the blond white woman` and lynchings.

It`s interesting to see how the supposedly enlightened left seems to get such glee from attacking a black man. You`d think they were only against racism against liberal blacks...

P.S. Princess Pelosi is one of the most hated women in America.

And the first thing that comes to mind when someone says “Princess Pelosi” is that pic of her walking to the Capitol building carrying that huge gavel with that cheese-eating grin on her face, as she knew she was about to go stuff Obamacare down the throat of every American.

Well: I went back through some early posts and found this from last Saturday. Even this CBS article says that “Cain has insisted he knew of only one complaint...[and]...a severance agreement with one woman”.

I really think that the “2 claims/complaints/settlements/whatever at the NRA” thing has taken on a life its own. I heard someone say “3 claims and settlements” on the radio yesterday!

It appears to be wrong factually, has not been substantiated and unfortunately does not help Cain’s case if people keep repeating it.
*********************************

[snip] “Cain left the association June 30, 1999, according to the NRA. Under that timeline, Cain would have been gone when the settlement was reached—and may well have been gone when she filed the complaint.

Cain has insisted he only knew of one complaint, and says he knew of no legal settlements—only what he calls a severance agreement with one woman. This timeline could well bolster his claims.

When Cain ran to represent Georgia in the Senate four years later, he told his advisers there was one complaint against him at the Restaurant Association, and that it was “baseless.” One former staffer on the Senate campaign told CBS News that he and other advisers in the campaign knew about that complaint and believed it was meritless, but thought it could crop up in possible opposition research.”

Actually, the [and] should probably be removed from the above quote — I added it and it could be construed to be 2 women, which is clearly NOT what the article that I quoted form says.

Apologies!

BS, the sexual harassment allegations haven't hurt him one bit so far and calling Pelosi Princess Pelosi will actually gain him votes from conservatives and I doubt if any Republican will not vote for him based on that. Sure, Democrats won't like it, but they wouldn't vote for him anyway.

...”What can we do to stop it? All we can do is stand by Herman and keep moving forward. If you have any suggestions, I’m open to hearing them”...

Exposing the lives and backgrounds of the accusers when they are known, and their leftist media supporters and lawyers, also, might be a good place to start. Bad stuff grows in the dark..Light is a great antiseptic. For too long, the media arm of the extreme left in the US has gotten a pass concerning who and what they are..It is time for all too know where they are coming from and who their worldwide supporters are. Glen Beck is the only media person who was trying to connect those dots and look what happened to him because he had little support. It will take many people demanding truth to wrest control from the 20% who look like 90% because of their big megaphones.

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. His “likes” have jumped dramatically since the attacks started. Make no mistake Sean Hannity’s BFF Tokyo Rove is watching Herman’s “likes” and so is Romney. THIS is the way to stick it to the GOP establishment! Please tell your family and friends to “like” Herman as well. Then let’s bring out our most powerful tool for helping Herman Cain: PRAYING that God protects him from the people of darkness.

We’re going with Cain/Gingrich.

I would LOVE to see that.

With some of today's polling numbers, that would consolidate some 40% support versus Romney's 19.4%.

Gingrich would be the missing piece that Cain needs for a team with a comprehensive grasp on all issues.

Yes, it looks like the press wants Mitt to be our candidate but the last time I checked there were three branches of government.

While the press is focusing on the Presidency we conservatives need to be focusing on the House and Senate as if we have those two we can force Mitt to move to the right.

Remember, anyone and I mean anyone is better than Obama.

See my post #39. From what I can see, Cain has maintained that there was only the one (1) issue at the NRA that he is aware. To date, I have seen absolutely ZERO to substantiate any other claims there.

Nothing more than a story/rumors morphing, hearsay, and/or unsubstantiated claims. If another claim existed, it would likely (but of course not necessarily) have been substantiated by now.
