Here is a sample of the media whores who revere Ted Kennedy and Bill Clinton but try to destroy a black man who dares to hold Conservative values.
Time contributor and MSNBC analyst Toure asserted that Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain “serves a massive psychological purpose” for the GOP as he offers a “Herman Cain card” that can be used by Republicans when they are accused of racism.
He went on to charge that Cain is “giving comfort to racism.”
Then there’s this –
Good Morning America’s John Hendren on Sunday dismissed the victory of Herman Cain in the Florida straw poll, condescendingly asserting that the “big winner is nobody.” The ABC reporter made sure to repeatedly mention the business of the Republican presidential candidate: “That’s right. The man who brought you Godfather’s Pizza at 37 percent.”…
…HENDREN: That’s right. The man who brought you Godfather’s Pizza at 37 percent, compared to 15 percent for Perry. Perry may need a Texas-sized surge to recover…
Then there is the ever-stupid Jeannine Garofalo –
GAROFALO: Herman Cain is — is is a — is probably well-liked by some of the Republicans because it hides the racist elements of the Republican Party, conservative movement and tea party movement, one in the same. You know, people like Karl Rove like to keep the racism very covert, and so Herman Cain provides this great opportunity so that you can say, “Look, this is not a racist anti-immigrant, anti-female —
The Washington Compost pulled Capehart out of their bag of tricks –
Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart appeared on Morning Joe to discuss his recent article where he claimed Herman Cain‘s campaign was an insult to his mother, writing that people of color had to work “twice as hard” and Cain denigrated the high level of expectation and preparation demanded by his mom. He then suggested that white Republicans feared making critical comments towards Cain because of his race
How about this exchange on MSLSD between analyst Finney and Bashir –
“One of the things about Herman Cain is, I think that he makes that white Republican base of the party feel okay, feel like they are not racist because they can like this guy,” Finney said. “I think he giving that base a free pass. And I think they like him because they think he’s a black man who knows his place. I know that’s harsh, but that’s how it sure seems to me.”
What is equally remarkable is Martin Bashir’s response: “Thank you for spelling that out.”
And then there is Chris Matthews who invented a story that Cain probably assaulted women while drunk. He just made it up.
Destroying a man’s reputation without bona fide evidence is a figurative lynching, especially when the victim is black and racist comments have been hurled at him and his admirers.
I don’t know if Herman Cain is guilty of flirting or sexual harassment or is innocent of all charges, but the media has already tried, convicted, and prepared him for execution with little evidence and with questionable testimony by at least one accuser who gets her advice from her 13 year old child. This accuser lived in a complex where Axelrod also lived coincidentally. Another accuser works for the Obama administration. The one accuser filed a complaint on her next job. It gets better…read this excellent article by Ann Coulter.
