Sexual Harassment Accusers: Not Automatic Saints Or Sinners
Liberal feminist attorney, Gloria Allred held a press conference in which her female client made shocking graphic sexual harassment allegations against Herman Cain. Sharon Bialek described a Herman Cain totally alien to the man I know.
Think about this folks. Suppose someone came out of nowhere to make totally out-of-character sexual harassment allegations against your dad, pastor, husband or friend. You would give your dad, pastor, husband or friend the benefit of the doubt until proven otherwise. This is called loyalty and friendship.
You would not go along with the politically correct way of thinking by demanding your dad, pastor, husband or friend prove they are not guilty. You would insist the burden of proof be placed squarely on their accuser where it rightfully belongs. I mean, we are talking about possibly destroying a priceless possession, one's reputation.
When Republicans or Conservatives are accused of sexual harassment, the left says the facts do not matter; only the seriousness of the charge. Anyone daring to question the accuser of a Republican or Conservative is attacked for being pro sexual harassment and a hater of women.
The arrogance and hypocrisy of the left continues to amaze me. ALL the women who accused Bill Clinton of sexual harassment were called liars and sluts by the left and the Clinton administration. Paula Jones sued Bill Clinton for sexual harassment. In an effort to discredit Jones, Clinton adviser, James Carville said, Drag $100 bills through trailer parks, there's no telling what you'll find.
Gloria Allred never came to the defense of Paula Jones or ANY of Clinton's numerous accusers. For crying out load, during his 1992 campaign, a Clinton staffer coined the term bimbo eruptions after being assigned to deal with women who might come forward alleging extramarital affairs.
Clinton was given a pass because he is a liberal Democrat. The left which includes the National Organization for Women and the liberal media are not about empowering women as they claim. They are really about furthering liberalism and a socialistic/progressive agenda.
If the left truly cared about empowering women, they would not despise Sarah Palin as they do. Palin should be their poster girl; the epitome of a powerful successful woman both inside and outside side of the home. If the left truly desired to offer women a choice regarding abortion, they would not have a cow when a mother is persuaded to birth her baby rather than abort it.
My comments have nothing to do with defending Cain as a presidential candidate. While I hold Cain in high regard, I have not formally endorsed
anyone. However, I smell the disgusting putrid odor of the left attempting to destroy ANOTHER black conservative.
Does the name Clarence Thomas ring a bell? In 1991, Democrats brought Anita Hill forward with charges of sexual harassment against black conservative, Clarence Thomas in a strategically planned left wing effort to deny Thomas a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court. They failed.
But the battle was brutal. The liberal media tried to assist the Democrats by digging deep into Thomas' life including investigating the movies he rented from his local video store. Their desperate quest was to find anything they could use to destroy Thomas' character. Anita Hill's graphic claim of a pubic hair on a soda can will live forever in infamy. Stay tuned folks for a Cain accuser to surface with allegations of a pubic hair on a pizza.
The liberal media's enthusiastic attack and attempt to destroy Cain, a black conservative, is deja vu all over again. In both incidences, the black conservatives were on the threshold of winning extremely powerful positions based on their merit rather than the left's sacred cow, Affirmative Action.
And come on folks, you have to admit the timing of this scandal is extremely suspect. The moment Cain stunned the political intelligentsia by becoming the front runner, these women decided to come forward with 20 year old vague allegations.
Then, right on cue, kicking the scandal up SEVERAL levels, Sharon Bialek comes forward alleging that Cain is not just a passive sexual harasser, but a predatory bully as well. Clearly, Bialek's over-the-top allegation was designed to be the knockout punch for the Cain campaign.
I remember a comment a woman made to me years ago during the Clarence Thomas/Anita Hill scandal, Something MUST have happened between them! I thought, Wow, despite no evidence, Thomas' reputation is tarnished for life. Thomas, as other black conservatives, paid a huge price to escape the liberal plantation. His scars are deep and life long.
I do not know Cain's accusers. However, after conversations, interactions over the past few years and witnessing his graciousness towards everyone behind the scenes, I admire and respect Cain. The man I know is a gentleman of character and faith. So please forgive me for not accepting the word of strangers and politically motivated spokespersons; especially knowing the modus operandi of the left.
Far too often, whenever one of ours is targeted by the liberal media and the left, Conservatives immediately run for the tall grass to distance myself. Until proven wrong, I believe and stand with brother Cain.

So do I, Mr. Marcus. So do I.
Agreed. To the accusers and their lawyers, I say “prove your case”.
Thank You, Lloyd Marcus, for that wonderful article! I am pinging Supporters of Herman Cain so they can ping others so we can all appreciate your writing about Friendship, loyalty, and justice! May you be blessed.
And there should be severe consequences for both the layer and plaintiff if they fail to prove their case.
Cain’s career has been ruined by an unproven accusation.
Don’t want to discourage legitimate cases, but like a false accusation of racism, a person can be destroyed without due process and recourse.
Thanks for the post. Anyone with intelligence can read between the lines to see what is happening.
As a conservative (woman if that matters), I never ran for the tall grass. I was waiting for the left to start their attacks and immediately saw right through it.
I adore Herman Cains enthusiasm, charisma, and sense of humor. I loved his quick wit on calling Pelosi Princess Pelosi and found it funny that he asked if Anita Hill would be endorsing him. If you lose your sense of humor because people get offended, then it isn’t worth living.
PC is ridiculous.....
Thank you for your post Marcus - but do know that there are so many of us here that never fell for the attack!
Notice how quickly Gloria has gone into hiding. The minute her client’s sorid history came out, Gloria hasn’t had any more tv face time. Hmm, why is that Gloria?
I screwed up the link. It won’t work when clicked on but will work cut and pasted for some reason. Back to the sandbox for me! Darn it.
Here you go!

The fact that Justice Thomas didn’t cave and still serves on the Supreme court as a stalwart conservative causes the leftists considerable irritation. I’d call that a double win.
Gloria Allred never came to the defense of Paula Jones or ANY of Clinton's numerous accusers. For crying out load, during his 1992 campaign, a Clinton staffer coined the term bimbo eruptions after being assigned to deal with women who might come forward ...
Telling it like it is...
Well written post. Thanks.
Thank you! I stand with Herman Cain too.
