    Saturday Night Card Game (Race-based attacks on Herman Cain expose left-wing hypocrisy, once again)

    Saturday Night Card Game (Race-based attacks on Herman Cain expose left-wing hypocrisy, once again)

    This is the latest in a series on the use of the race card for political gain

    The attacks on Herman Cain from the left are gruesome, as Cain is reduced by his attackers to an affirmative action candidate who helps white Republicans hide their racism by allowing them to support a compliant black person for President.  The attacks are not “racist,” but they are race-based, as Cain’s race is the reason for and focus of the attacks.

    We already have seen on the Saturday Night Card Game how Janeane Garofalo asserted that Cain was gaining popularity in the Republican primaries only because he allows racist “teabaggers” to hide their racism.  Numerous left-wing bloggers and pundits argued that Cain was an insult to blacks, a minstrelsy self-loathing figure.

    Now they’re claiming that Cain is popular because he knows his place (emphasis mine):

    “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.”

    Some NAACP officials have joined in the attacks (emphasis mine):

    “He’s engaging in a very dangerous, irresponsible type of rhetoric,” said Edward DuBose, president of the Georgia state conference of the NAACP. “It’s almost like he feels the need to be accepted in a different class or community, and somehow, by portraying his own race or portraying the poor as a problem, it’s going to advance his cause. I think he’s going to find that that’s not true.”

    Much as liberal feminists joined in or at least condoned misogynistic attacks on Sarah Palin, liberal civil rights advocates are silent  or even join in the race-based attacks on Cain.  And in so doing, once again subjugate the principles they espouse to the needs of the Democratic Party.


    Donations tax deductible
    to the full extent allowed by law.


    Truly no words anymore. I’m a recovering democrat, after what I saw done to Hillary and Bill in 2008, the Obamas and LSM calling them racist at every turn, I saw the radical race baiting cesspool that is now the undemocratic party.

    Don’t vote for Barry? you’re a racist, vote for Herman Cain? hell you’re a racist then as well. These people on the left are sick, so sick they cannot even see their sickness.

    Every democrat I know, who are conservative, moderate, JFK type dems, have left the party or just DINOs now, disgust does not even begin to describe how they look at their former party.

    I’ve been a democrat my whole voting life, until 2008, I voted for Mccain/Palin, and honestly I do not ever see myself voting for another demonRat again, these people are beyond disgusting.
    I’m not sold on Cain yet, mainly because I want to see how he handles these attacks, but if he is the nominee, hell yes, I will campaign for him harder than I campaigned for Hillary, and when I campaigned for Palin.

    I’m sending another donation to Cain. Right now I cannot think of another Republican with better cajones to get the job done…

    Come on 2012!

    “I’m sending another donation to Cain.”

    I’m going send my very first donation to Cain. I watched that insulting video one more time and just got so disgusted at what they’re doing to Cain.

    Herman Cain is like a human Rorschach Test to the American left … the twisted projections he brings out of them should be very revealing to independent voters.

    I could go on all day and night about the way white liberals treat him (I see on Facebook already that my old liberal classmates are gradually trying to Palinize him).

    His treatment by America’s black liberals is added evidence that many of them really do suffer from what Shelby Steele has termed “racial doubt” and don’t want blacks to be held accountable for any lack of success. They always want the excuse of racism at the ready.

    Seriously, how much more controversial is what Mr. Cain is saying about the black community compared to what Bill Cosby has said repeatedly?

    Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan was prescient in his warnings of the break down of the black family. He had the courage and the integrity to speak out about it, knowing many people would not want to hear such warnings.

    He was accused of being a racist … and that accusation hurt him so badly that his daughter later recalled finding him in the kitchen, crying.

    I see it clearly now. If I support Cain, I am a racist. If I don’t support Cain, I am a racist. Since I am a white, conservative I am a racist. It is so obvious now…
