Cain needlessly scorned

  • Follow Letters

The public lynching of Herman Cain should be an embarrassment to the black community.

No organization such as the NAACP has said anything to protest the conduct of the press or answer the allegations against Cain. Where is the Rev. Al Sharpton or the Rev. Jesse Jackson to stand up to this “high-tech lynching” of Cain?

No matter. The socialist agenda being forced on the American people by President Obama must be protected, no matter how the destruction advances.

Now we have Herman Cain, who came from humble beginnings and worked his way up to be the successful man he is now. The fact that four women tear him down without witnesses is appalling.

Why does the black community believe women who come out with these accusations? Do they fear that their savior Obama might be beaten in an election by a man who makes sense? A conservative? A man who has worked in the business sector, where Obama has not?

Shame on all of this as we watch silently.

Thank you to whomever dredged

Thank you to whomever dredged up these "accusers."

All of the hate of Herman Cain has confirmed my decision to support him.

If the establishment hates him that much, he must be doing something right.

…they said, as they decry with the wave of their right hand and whipped out their race card, tightly held in their left hand.

I know this dog and pony

I know this dog and pony show. Saw it once before with Clarence Thomas. Most juris doctorates agree that Clarence is a great mistake, he being one of their own. Don't think we will make the same mistake twice, yet there are those out there like ole Cliff here who are still takin in.

If made up accusations are

If made up accusations are the worst they can throw at Cain, then this is going to be a fun election season.

What will they do next? Claim that he ripped the tag off of his mattress?

I can't believe anyone is falling for this.

"Lynching"? The guy said he

"Lynching"? The guy said he had no idea that cash settlements had been made for assault claims, and then later admitted that not only did he know about them, but that he had briefed campaign staff about them. The pattern of public deception for private gain is sleazy enough in itself. Why do we keep getting behind people that find it so easy to lie to those they claim to want to represent?

burninatar-A cash payment was

burninatar-A cash payment was made for a seperation from the NRA for the one "lady" in question. She was terminated from her positon and payed a seperation payment. It was differant from a settlement for her claims Cain was inappropriate which were never paid. I suppose you voted for BillClinton dispite Jenifer Flowers, Paul jones, MS USA (who moved to Cananda to get away from Clinton) etc. etc.. Near as I can tell Cain doesn't have a squad of people to handle bimbo erruptions like Cllinton. Besides according to the left a man's private sexual life have nothing to do with his political ablility! Just ask Juanita Brodrick, Bwahahahaha. Now turns out one of his accusers daughters works for politico, the one that has puplicly come forward is a flake of the first order and nobody remembers seeiing Cain with her. One alligation involves diner in which nothing happened. LOL Mean while we have gun walker(inwhich an American law enforcement officer was killed), Sloyndra, Fisker motors, Jon Corzine (Obama buddy that bundled 500 million in campaign furnds for Obama) former democratic Governor, is missing millions form a fund he managed) and has had to step down from Goldman Sacs WALL STREET FIRM. I know it is more important to focus on baseles alligations a year from the election...Of course the left is hoping if they throw enough mud some will stick...Oh! lets not forget Fannie Mea just got 7.8 BILLION more in tax dollar bail outs...15 year old alligations of baseless sexual harrasment are more important..

Social conservative pundits

Social conservative pundits tend to be astonishingly obtuse when discussing race, so it is good they rarely do so. Last week was unfortunate exception, as one of "their" blacks struggled to frame a coherent response to allegations that he harassed a white female colleagues in the 1990s when Herma Cain headed the National Restaurant Association. Though accusations of sexual impropriety have beset a bipartisan who's who of black and white politicians, the right wing came out in force to argue that people are only questioning Cain because he is a black conservative. This would be the same Herman Cain who not so long aggo said racism was no longer a significant obstacle for African - Americans. This would be the same right wing that is conspicuous by its silence, its hostility or its complicity when the injustice system imposes mass incarceration on young black men, when the number of hate groups in this country spikes to more than a thousand, when the black unemployment rate stands at twice the national average, when President Obama is called " uppity" and " boy." Sorry, (uncle tom) Herman Cain you have burned all your bridges with the black communities. Wish you well with your run for the Republican nominee!!!!!

This is Clarence Thomas all
Unpublished

This is Clarence Thomas all over again. A black man is a conservative Republican. So how do we ruin him? Just accuse him of sexual harrassment, of course. No proof needed. My question is, where's Fat Al Sharpton and Motormouth Jesse Jackson? If this was a liberal Democrat, they'd be on TV screaming about this "lynching." Another case of hypocrites who claim to represent "the poor and oppressed."

Kissof death- Obama spent two

Kissof death- Obama spent two years, with Democratic Congress and did NOTHING, repeat NOTHING to help black unemployment and you are upset at Republicans? Gingrich actually has a pretty good idea how to help unemployment. Where is Obama other than giving $500 million to Fisker motor so they can build cars in Finland? The Chevy volt is going to built in China for over seas distribution..but hay Obama is your man...lets cheer and continue with 15 year old alligations about Cain..BWAHAHAHAHAHA

Herman Cain is a man of

Herman Cain is a man of integrity. He is a man who does not use traditional political rhetoric. He is a real person who was not raised in a priviledged manner. He worked his way into financial and economic success.
I am a defender of women's rights. I believe women are objectified in our society. That is a shame. But after seeing the woman who accused Cain of touching her leg and groping her genitals, I am convinced he did none of these things. I have heard many accounts of sexual assault and this one appears to be competely fabricated. I could tell the woman's statement was scripted. She had no negative emotions about the event. She seemed to enjoy the limelight, being the center of attention. And of course Gloria Allred was basking in the light as well. How did they meet each other? What were the circumstances of that? Is there money involved? These answers will be exposed by and by.
Where was Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and all the other black brothers? They are liberal democrats and use the race card only when it promotes their agenda.
Herman Cain has a lot to learn in order to be President, and I have no doubt he is preparing himself. He is a good business man and I think that is a very positive attribute, given our present economic situation. We need someone to straighten out this country's financial crisis and reform the tax system. His 9.9.9 plan makes plenty of sense and will help the regular Joe as well as the business world. We will pay less taxes and businesses will be able to hire more people. It's quite simple. It will be difficult to make this transition because Congress is made up of obstinate politicians.
Cain is being made to suffer these allegations just because he is a conservative. And he is a black conservative. Obama's electors wanted him in just because he was black....interesting, huh? Why is it any different with Cain? Because he believes in personal responsibility. Democrats believe the government should take care of everyone. Quite a difference in philosophy.
I believe Clinton was a good President who did great things for the economy. But, where were all the moral superiors when he was accused and proven to be a womanizer? Double standard? Yes!
Let's back Herman Cain.

This tells me that some are

This tells me that some are really scared that ole Herman could move in the WHouse.....
Men make passes at women all the time...most stop as soon as they realize it wasn't welcomed........biology in motion won't change.....the birds & bees are very powerful emotions in life.....when will we stop acting so naive...this does happen with powerful men & also women....but you seldom hear a man at a press conference saying that a woman pressured him into a sexual act against his will.....now THAT would be interesting...
We need to get back to the problems in the USA...don't be fooled again by media heads & ratings runs....our life has turned into a J Springer show EVERYDAY....
Money people wanting to guide the naive are doing it again-I wish we could learn the lesson & stop acting like bobbleheads.

(of course..true sexual harrassment is wrong & shouldn't be tolerated-just don't get fooled about it)

Oh please, please, please let

Oh please, please, please let the Hermanator be the GOP nominee! That would absolutely guarantee the reelection of Obama. Obama's second term will reveal the plans we liberals have for the United States, which most of the right wing conservative posters to this site have long suspected. Yes, Obama will turn America into a pure socialist state. Yes, he will no longer listen to Congress, but instead rule by executive decree.
Yes, he will accept the title of King Barack the First, America's first monarch. Yes, no one earning under $1,000,000 will be taxed, tax rates on the wealthy and large corporations will be set at 90%, and yes,
every American will be forced to buy funny light bulbs, near beer, and solar panels. And finally, yes, King Obama will suspend the Constitution and rule for the next forty years.

EEL, you must not have seen the latest polls. Obammy's approval is sinking faster than the Titanic. It reminds me of Jimmah Cahtuh, and the wimpy, incompetent administration he put us through for 4 years. Remember that? Carter is the only one glad Obama is president. It bumps him off the number one spot for worst president. But hey, you go ahead and cheer Obama on. You can wave to him as he says goodbye to Washington in January 2013.

Unpublished

Well, well, well, looky here, on Yahoo, AP reports that one of the accusers of Cain, Karen Kraushaar, who took a settlement and left the NRA, filed ANOTHER complaint at her next job 3 years later. She claimed a manager circulated a sexually charged E-mail, and complained that she wasn't allowed to work from home after being injured in an auto accident. Anybodysee a pattern here?

Before you make accusations

Before you make accusations against the woman, Please. talk to some professional women and you will see that this is not even close to being unbelievable, it is just that MOST women don't want to air the event to the public so handle it themselves.

I made it a point to ask three career women yesterday and they each had experienced sexually related harassment.I also worked for many years as a manager with both women and men employees..things happened.

This has nothing to do with Cain or the charges against him, just please don't be too harsh on women until we know for a fact that they are lying (if they are then fire away!), life is not easy out there.

I don't believe Cain did

I don't believe Cain did anything malicious. The woman who were given hush money (it's hush money when a gag order if given to one party) have stated Cain's actions were just weird and creepy. I know what they mean- I've seen his commercial where he has that creepy slow smile while staring at the camera for 20 seconds.

This is all a non-issue (Which came from Perrys camp by the way). Cain should be criticized from taking a tax plan from SimCity and his numbers do not work unless you're super rich, using a quote from a great poet as closing statements at debates which really were word for word from Pokemon's theme song, how Cain is on a book tour instead of having teams in important states, how Cain has zero foreign policy knowledge, ranging from China (not knowing they have had nukes since 1960's, he said China is seeking out the bomb) to Israel (not knowing what Right of Return was, but fudged an answer anyways) to policy here in the States. When asked difficult questions this weekend with his debate with Ginrich, Cain would have Newt answer first- because Cain doesn't know, but he can fudge answers after hearing what people in the know have said. Does anyone remember Cain's bizzare interview on Fox about abortion..which left the FOX interviewers with their mouth's open? Speaking of bizarre, his ads are the weirdest things...

I'm with allhans on this.

I'm with allhans on this. It is my understanding that these women did not instigate this stink. Their names were dug up by Politico and they were thrown into the media spotlight. As such, they are telling their own side of the story. Newt had to deal with his and it won't kill Herman to stand up like a man and tell the truth.

I believe that the charges

I believe that the charges will cost Cain the female vote, or at least, most of them. He will have a hard time winning the nomination if he doesn't stop his mealy-mouth way of talking and direct his comments to his supporters, not the media.

So far two women have been

So far two women have been identified: Karen Kraushaar and Sharon Bialek.

Bialek looks good now and I bet she was hot 12 years ago; on the other hand, Kraushaar looks OK and if I time morph her back 12 years she is still only looks OK.

As it stands now, Herman’s hot to frump ratio is 1; he needs to get it above 1 like Clinton.

So today we learn the

So today we learn the following:

1. The woman who accused him was fired from the NRA because she filed a fraudulent sex accusation against her boss
2. The woman has financial troubles (and now she's being paid to appear on news interviews)
3. The woman has a history of other legal accusations in the workplace
4. One of the other women who accused him works in the obama administration
5. A third woman lived near a top obama aide

The fix is in. Cain is being targeted. He is the first to be thrown under the bus. Expect the next frontrunner to meet the exact same fate.

The communists & marxists who are fighting to stay in control will stop at nothing (including lying & destroying a man) in order to control America.

What else will they resort to?
Murdering U.S. citizens? Never mind, already done.
Giving weapons to our enemies that are used to kill an America citizen? (to further their anti Second Amendment stance) Never mind, already done.
Delaying the 2012 election due to "national emergency"? You know, like an economic crisis?

This bunch is dangerous & intentional and they are very, very bad for America. They need to be eradicated from Washington DC before they destroy life as we know it. The faster the better.
