    Saturday Night Card Game (Herman Cain isn’t their type of black)(Readers’ Choice Award)

    Saturday Night Card Game (Herman Cain isn’t their type of black)(Readers’ Choice Award)

    Herman Cain is bringing out the worst venom from the liberal media and entertainment complex, and the left-wing blogosphere.

    Just as we saw liberal feminists fall all over themselves to bash Sarah Palin as an insult to women, so too we see liberals who claim to be enlightened on matters of race fall all over themselves to bash Cain as an insult to blacks.

    There are so many examples just this past week so I’ll let you choose:

    1. Touré on The Dylan Ratigan Show, who called Cain a media whore and compared Cain to Flavor Flav:

    Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

    2.  Bill Maher, who referred to Cain as a “token black“:

    BILL MAHER: Big news, of course, in the Republican ranks. There is a new – I say  this every week – but there is a new frontrunner:  Herman Cain, Herman  Cain. The Republican establishment is freaking out because their token black guy  is in the league now.

    3.  Pam Spaulding at Firedoglake who accuses Cain of shameless tap dancing for conservative white voters:

    But back to race. I’ll never understand Herman Cain and his relationship to the GOP establishment; like former puppet Michael Steele, they don’t see (or don’t care) how rancid race-based politics in the Republican party has become… [T]he Republican leadership has made its bed with the fundamentalists and nativist know-nothings, making Cain and other black Republicans curious cases that border on self-loathing.

    4.  Cartoonist Telnaes at The Washington Post who portrays Cain as Bull Connor holding an attack dog on a leash (h/t Dana Loesch):

    5. Ulli K. Ryder, a “visiting scholar” at Brown University in Providence, quoted in The New York Times calling Cain “minstrelsy” (h/t John Nolte):

    “It makes the hair on my neck stand up,” said Ulli K. Ryder, a visiting scholar at the Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity in America at Brown University. “The larger issue that a lot of people have, and I certainly have, is that he uses a certain kind of minstrelsy to play to white audiences. Referencing negative stereotypes in order to get heard to a white audience in the 21st century is really a problem.”

    It’s a tough choice.  (Poll open until 5 p.m. on Sunday, October 23)

    These people are for the ideological equivalent of anti-miscegenation laws.

    I good counter argument to the NPV.

    http://www.lwvvc.org/NPVArgument_con.pdf

    The big issue is that the National Popular Vote Compact just changes how the state electors are apportioned, not that electors are still required. The Constitution just says that there have to BE electors. It doesn’t specify how those electors are to be apportioned. That is left up to the states.

    Actually, even NOW, the State Electors can vote for whomever the hell they want, they don’t HAVE to follow the popular vote of their state now, unless they are required to by state law. Usually though, states have TWO slates of electors, and appoint the slate whose party wins the popular vote of that state. Unless required to by state law, electors could entirely ignore the will of the people in their state and vote against the popular vote. See: Us Constitution, Article II, Section 1, Clause 3.

    If the states want to change the way they apportion their individual electors, that’s up to them. I think it unwise, because the first time that the electors of the state vote against the way that state’s popular vote went, there will be ABSOLUTE HELL TO PAY amongst that state’s legislature in the next days as the citizens of that state RIOT against the state government.

    Now, that being said, there may be an argument against this on the grounds of “One Person, One Vote” under the Reynolds v. Sims 377 U.S. 533 (1964) decision and its progeny, on the argument that the voters of one state would be disenfranchised by the voters of another state.

    As far as I am concerned, every one of these people should be fired. This is a man who has a lifetime of accomplishment, who is running for the office of President of the United States, and the entire purpose of these remarks is to stir up racist distaste for him instead of reporting on his issues and proposals.

    None of these people have a place in our public debate.

    I should clarify that Herman Cain is not my first, second or third choice for the Republican nomination. I consider him far too inexperienced and rather naive to ever be taken seriously. I further have little doubt that he, like Bachmann and Perry before him, is a passing fancy for Tea Partiers to flirt with before moving on to the next “Not Romney” (Gingrich? egah!).

    That being said, the bilious, race-charged bile spewing excrement from frothing liberals about Cain is disgusting but not surprising. It’s important to understand the simple, Manichean worldview most liberals (at least most liberal celebrities and intellectuals) adopt. Republicans and conservatives ARE (by definition) greedy, oppressive, racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic hate-spewing white men along with their delusional, air-headed, barbie doll women. Whenever anything or anyone challenges this worldview, the liberal intelligentsia goes into a catatonic fit. This worldview CANNOT be wrong! Never!

    Herman Cain poses a very direct and extremely troubling challenge to this worldview in that he is not only African American, but he grew up poor in the Jim Crow south. How can anyone like that EVER be anything but a passionately liberal Democrat? He cannot, cannot cannot!! No, no, no! The liberal stamps his foot and covers his ears.

    Since the liberals’ definition of a Republican/conservative is, prima facie true, there can only be one explanation. Something is terribly wrong with Cain. He is a “token”, a “minstrel”, a “tap dancer”. Has anyone called him the dreaded “Uncle Tom” yet? If not, that will come soon enough.

    As I said, I doubt that Cain ultimately will be the nominee or even come close. But, if by some chance he does, what we’re seeing now will only be a pale glow of the white (no pun intended) hot burning rage which will explode and ooze from the oh so tolerant and multicultural left. It will be ugly, friends. Ugly and vile. If you think we saw the worst of liberalism in their excoriation of anyone who dared criticize their savior Obama…well, you ain’t seen nothing yet.
