So, it begins in earnest. Herman Cain is a conservative candidate, ahead in the polls, and he’s an authentic black with an authentic life story of achievement and competence. Therefore, because he threatens their death-grip on numerous false narratives, the press must not only oppose him but destroy him. After a number of small forays, finally they have hoisted their Hypocrite, Liar, and Cheater flags high atop the mast of the USS SaveObama for all to see, and aimed their big guns at Cain.
Today, he was the recipient of a hit job by Democrat opinion rag Politico.com, in a timed ambush attack ahead of a Cain appearance at at National Press Club luncheon. The timing was guaranteed to cause a stir and put Cain in the position of having to answer questions about the apparently baseless charges. Politico levied the claim that Cain had sexually harrassed 2 women in the 1990’s. [I will not dignify those toads with a link, by the way, so look elsewhere if feel you have to soil yourself with it]
Naturally it was short on detail, and long on innuendo. It is still unclear exactly what he is accused of having said and/or done, and the identities of his accusers are withheld, naturally. As far as anyone can tell, the accusers never had to face a board or a judge, or be cross-examined in any way. Just hit and run charges. But hey, Politico deemed the charges to be of vital importance. Funny about what the Democrats consider important, when it comes to men exploiting women. For over a decade, credible accuser Juanita Broderick, a nursing home administrator (not a stripper, secretary, or trailer park queen), couldn’t get any press to even listen to her story, an accusation that she was forcibly raped by Bill Clinton. Paula Jones was accused by the press of being a slut, and Kathleen Willey’s protestations just got her dog killed. Not a peep in the press; nobody asked Clinton for details on anything.
Herman? He is getting the Clarence Thomas treatment, a high-tech media lynching by the Democrats. According to the liberal national press, it is his job to prove the accusations false. Of course.
The message is crystal clear. If you are a black conservative, you are off the plantation. You better get back where you belong, or else.
PS — by the way, do you think that Politico is solely responsible for this, and not the Democrat machine? Do you really? Do you also believe the earth is warming due to man-made CO2 production? Do you believe the poor and the middle class pay most of the taxes in the United States? Hey, want to play poker with me and my pals this Saturday night? None of us are very good, but you’ll need to bring lots of money.
