Why the Party of the KKK Hates Herman Cain


Pages: 1 2

It’s not Herman Cain’s comment that many African Americans are “brainwashed” against conservatism or his declaration that he “won’t stay on the Democrat plantation” that really infuriates liberals. It’s the presidential candidate’s very existence. Blacks aren’t supposed to be conservative.

And Herman Cain certainly isn’t supposed to be sitting atop the field of Republican presidential aspirants. But that’s where a new CBS News poll places the former pizza king, garnering, along with former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, the support of 17 percent of Republican primary voters. Cain’s gain is not sitting well among those with race on the brain.

“Herman Cain is probably well liked by some of the Republicans because it hides the racist elements of the Republican Party,” quipped comedienne Janeane Garofalo. “Herman Cain provides this great opportunity so you can say ‘Look, this is not a racist, anti-immigrant, anti-female, anti-gay movement. Look we have a black man.’” CNN’s Cornell Belcher actually called the African American presidential candidate “racist” and “bigoted.” Jesse Jackson described the former Godfather’s Pizza chief executive officer’s characterization of the relationship between African Americans and the Democratic Party “demeaning and insulting” to black voters.

The talking head really losing his head over Herman Cain is Roland Martin. The CNN pundit writes, “You would think that a black man born and raised in Georgia, who was a teenager during the civil rights movement, would understand the transition of African-Americans from voting overwhelmingly Republican to strongly supporting the Democratic Party.”

Why?

During the civil rights movement, every member of the Georgia congressional delegation was a Democrat and every member of the Georgia congressional delegation save one voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The only African Americans elected to Congress from Georgia prior to the civil rights movement were Republicans. When Republican Fletcher Thompson helped break the Democratic stranglehold on the state’s Washington delegation in 1966, he gave an African American a job in his local office. However pedestrian this sounds today, this had never happened in that district. Even as seemingly benign a symbol of the New South as Jimmy Carter won election as governor after his campaign peddled a photo of his opponent with black basketball players to rallying Klansmen and as governor visited the Confederados—descendants of American Southerners who emigrated to Brazil following the Civil War—in 1972.

      This article is COMPLETELY TRUE.
      Prior to 1968 ,the states of the Old Confederacy were known as the "The Solid South",meaning SOLID Democratic.
      Only the 1968 INDEPENDENT campaign of George Wallace,a Dixiecrat's Dixiecrat,pulled them OUT,enabling Nixon to win.

      When Southern Democratic Governors were "standing in schoolhouse doors" to prevent Black students from enrollment ,it was DEMOCRATIC RACIST GOVERNORS who were DEFYING Federal Law.

      • Questions

        But Democrat and liberal did NOT mean the same thing in the once-solid South. In fact, they meant the very opposite. How many times does this have to be said? And why do we Republicans have to nominate our own "best black" to show the Left that we, too, love Diversity. Fools! The Left will never love us, no matter how hard we play their game. I prefer a white nominee in 2012. Cain has no chance of winning.

        • Poppakap

          Sorry Questions. Your mask is pulled. Just another leftist troll spewing sophistry in their attempts to make all conservatives sound racist. You are the racist because you seem to view all things through a racial prism. Conservatives don't give a damn about race. We care about character and principles. A candidate can be blue and orange and still get my vote if that candidate supports limited government and constitutional principles.

          Here's another thing troll; we don't look at ourselves as Republicans. We view ourselves as conservatives that sometimes are members of the GOP, sometimes Libertarians, sometimes Constitution Party members, etc.

          Finally, liberal and democrat DID mean the same thing in the Old South, that's the point of the article, which you somehow seemed to miss. Woodrow Wilson, a liberal's liberal, and architect of the modern progressive (what's progressive about expanding government power and higher taxes? it's been done by every despot in history) movement, was key in instituting racist government policies at the federal level (WW was especially fond of Margeret Sanger's racist eugenics ideas–today represented fully by Planned Parenthood–since they would ensure the benighted peoples would never rise in power). As a college history teacher, my students are constantly amazed at the ugly history of the democrat party, but it's history that can't be denied no matter how hard the left tries. No amount of name-calling by BSNBC or dem polititicians can or will ever change these facts. That so many blacks are still working on such a racist plantation of ideas is the greatest irony in American politics today.

        your correct, however since the civil rights movement of the 60's the solid south went to and remain in the rebuttian party. This was confirmed under rayguns and bush 41 southern strategy.

  • angel

    Only an idiot would bring up the subject if you are a democrat. I have played that game with some on the Left and immediately they distance themselves from the subject knowing full well that they are going to get hit in the face with the proverbial 2 x 4 of reality. I always ask them to make a list of Republicans who were racists and I would make a list of Democrats. The smart ones avoid the whole thing. The democrats were not only racists they were genocidal against the blacks. Enter Margaret Sanger she spoke of sterilizing those she designated as "unfit," a plan she said would be the "salvation of American civilization. She hated the Catholics for opposing abortion. She opposed JFK election and bowed to leave the country if he was elected. It is not just the democrats but the Left who is racist and destructive. I could go on and on.

    • Questions

      See my above comment. Democrat and liberal are not synonymous. By the way, Margaret Sanger late in life was a good friend of Barry Goldwater and heavily influenced him on abortion. This, too, is a fact. Yes, Margaret Sanger: Republican.

      • Poppakap

        This is an absolute lie without ANY basis in fact. You can not provide a single legitimate source to support your heinous assertion. Not one.

        That you insist on splitting hairs between dems and libs is laughable in the face of evidence. That's much like libs saying, "communism didn't fail, it just wasn't implemented correctly.." If you are going to engage adults in conversation, then behave like one and provide evidence that is easily verifiable. Otherwise, take a hike and leave the discussion to others.

        You sound like you belong to the Janine Garofolo school of rhetoric; throw out any crazy old sh#t, say it repeatedly, and see how many people will listen and/or agree before being socially ostracized by rational folk, then blame the rational for not accepting your views due to racism (of course; that's when you know conservatives have won the argument).

        Here's the final point; MS would NEVER have associated with the GOP due to its high concentration of religious peoples. She HATED religion and fought against it with every fiber of her being. She especially hated Catholics due to the church's stance against contraception. Catholic AND Protestant organizations rallied together to fight against her American Birth Control League every time it attempted to change legislation. No, she had no affiliation with the GOP, but found herself embraced by the liberal wing of the democrat party and is considered a saint to those on the left that think Planned Parenthood is doing American society an invaluable service. What American libs like MS have done is perpetuated a black genocide in this country that is supported and enforced by legions of useful idiots like you who know next to nothing about history or willingly ignore it to suit your ideological goals.

        • StephenD

          Poppakap, I welcome reading your post. I would tell you only that I take issue with letting the Left define the terms. I see nothing LIBERAL about touting a totalitarian system of government. I see nothing PROGRESSIVE in going backward. I believe in personal freedom and individual responsibility. To me, THIS is LIBERAL. I hate that we let them hi-jack the term. PLANNED PARENTHOOD is all about perpetuating UNPLANNED PARENTHOOD. They call it CHOICE…(when the child presents no threat to the mom) I call it MURDER. I hope you see my point. I bet you could conduct an entire class on this topic.

          Here's the thing about Communism/Socialism: Brilliant professors of the left realize they are smarter.

          - Hitler was insane. Obviously he couldn't implement it correctly
          - Stalin was insane. Obviously he couldn't implement it correctly
          - Lenin was insane. etc.
          - Mao, etc.

          Obviously the people who tried socialism/communism weren't up to the standards of out all so smart professors.

          They believe it will work under their guidance.

          Of course they ignore the basic fact that human nature makes socialism/communism impossible.

    Plessy vrs Ferguson. Ferguson was the Democratic AG of Louisiana. The one no vote on the Supreme court was a guy named Harlin, a Republican.
    Does anyone believe the 5000 lynchings in the south were perpetrated by packs of rogue Republicans? Why did FDR block the anti-lynching legislation (proposed by Republicans) in 1937/38? As Angel (above) said, one could go on and on.

    • Questions

      Dixiecrats of decades ago were Democrats, but they were NOT liberals. They had nothing to do with the anti-white Democrats of today — like Barack Obama.

  • kafir4life

    Democrats don't like the idea of the descendents of slaves being their president (or women either). That's why they selected a halfrican-American (thanks Rush) whose father was not descended from slaves, and whose mother is white (remember the racist Harry Reid? "Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) referred to President Barack Obama as “light skinned” and “with no Negro dialect” in private conversations during the 2008 presidential campaign.").

    It has been learned tho' that Obama's family has been involved in immigration and jobs issues for generations. In fact, Obama's great-great-great-great-grat Grandfather assisted Herman Cain's family and Michelle (my belle) Obama's family immigrate to the new world, and assisted them in finding employment when they arrived. B-Rock is just carrying on the family tradition.

  • theleastthreat

    I believe even Castro gets a pass on his racial views by the Left. Or was it Che?

  • Truthteller

    A brief primer on American History: First of all, the 'eye-opening' information that Flynn presents on Wilson is presented in 'left-wing' history books that the Right has tried to discount (except when it serves narrow interests, like this article). Second, in the 1930s there was the first of two primary shifts in party membership, when Blacks abandoned the 'party of Lincoln' for FDR's experiment. This epochal shift was completed in the 1960s (beginning with Goldwater, and perfected by Nixon), in the push to 'win the South.' In that decade, conservative Whites abandoned the Democrats (partly b/c of LBJ's Civil Rights platform) and joined the Republican Party en masse. So Flynn is right in the narrow sense, that the 'Solid South' before and after slavery was Democratic (DUH! every history book will tell you this), but he's wrong about what that has to tell us about the present party affiliation, or policy positions. It's either ignorance on his part, or more likely, misleading lies designed to fool the gullible. Your choice.

    • MKS

      Dig a little deeper. As mentioned, in 1964, a higher percentage of Republicans voted for equal rights legislation than did Democrats. Republicans oppose, however, Great Society give-away programs – the compulsory "help the poor" promises that have basically destroyed families and the economy. The FDR economic Experiment was a failure with a long fuse, and the LBJ economic experiment was a tragedy.

      Many black citizens do not recognize that they have suffered as a result of these power-grabbing experiments in semi-socialism by Democrats. When they do recognize it, prepare for a seismic political shift. Herman Cain may just be the cutting edge of that shift.

      • davidhorowtiz

        LBJ was responsible for the largest set of Civil Rights legislation in history. And by give-away programs I assume you include Medicare/Medicaid? Programs that the Tea Party loves to love. Programs that provide assistance to single mothers hardly 'destroy the family.' And the alternative to FDR was Hoover, hardly a model for success. Smoot-Hawley was passed during the Hoover administration – the biggest example of protectionism that the Right abhors. The fact is, there is no stable 'Republican' or 'Democratic' party over a hundred or more period. Horowitz, when he shows subtlety, admits this, by his claim that radicals 'hijacked the Democratic Party in the 60s.' (A wrong assessment, but one that points to the instability of party affiliation over time.)

        • mlcblog

          this is really weird of you to use david's name….

          the only point I am going to talk about here is to refute your parenthetical comment that the hijacking of the Democratic party is a wrong assessment.

          You are simply incorrect. I was privy to conversations by some of the commies who engineered the takeover strategy and saw it first-hand, as I was involved in rabble-rsousing myself back in the day. Perhaps you are ignorant of this, but it sounds more like you just don't want it to be true.

    "Even membership in the most vile racist organization was no impediment to leadership in the Democratic Party. In 1924, the Democratic National Convention refused to repudiate the Ku Klux Klan in an infamous vote."

    The KKK may have been considered the "most vile racist organization" in 1924, but truth be told, Islam and its vile Muslim hordes have always been the most vile and most racist monstrosities to have ever infected the Earth.

    Why I will NEVER be a DemocRAT

    Planned parenthood AND the DemocRAT Party ARE 
    INHERENTLY RACIST in their continued attempt at BLACK GENOCIDE. 

    They are, and always will use abortion to accomplish this. 

    So much the better as far as they are concerned, 
    if they can get black women to do this themselves voluntarily. 

    "the damage being wrought by government programs 
    targeted at blacks and the poor",…

    ARE BEING DONE ON PROPOSE with the express intent
     of Black Genocide as the ultimate goal.

    ie Melanin IS THE issue.

    The removal of it in particular.

    This is why I WILL NEVER SUPORT the DemocRAT Party.

    It is too bad they along with the LAME-STREAM media 
    have been able to con the black population into believing other wise. 
    But hopefully the con is starting to show. 

    And people ARE starting to wake up to it.

    The DemocRATs use one of the OLDEST leftist tricks, 
    and PLAY THE RACE card AGAIN.

    Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson along with Barry are AWARE, 
    but will play along for the power they THINK they are allowed to have.

    I DO NOT suport abortion, and this IS Planned Parenthoods charter, 
    regardless of their claim otherwise.

    Abraham Lincoln was the FIRST Republican to run for president,
    and won in 1860.

    The Republican Party was created in 1854 to combat the threat of slavery's 
    extension to the territories, and to promote more vigorous modernization of the economy. 

    Before that it was the Whigs and the Democrat Party.

    The Democrat Party was the party of the SLAVE OWNERS.

    And It hasn't changed ANY since then.

    • Questions

      And slave owners were liberal?

      • Truthteller

        Apparently, by his logic. And by logic, I mean half-baked insane rant. Also, Lincoln was the 2nd Republican to run for president, but who's counting?

  • StephenD

    I believe the reason Black Americans are predominantly associated with the Democratic Party is that these are the folks that promise to care for them. Reality at this point doesn't matter. Take a look; for the last 40+ yrs. the likes of Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, et al, have convinced folks that they are representing their best interests. It is the “Rich White Man holding them down." Really? Any thinking person can se that these folks grow rich while the beleaguered neighborhoods they supposedly speak for are none the better for them being "on their side." The Party that perpetuates dependent living rather than independent lives cannot possibly be in anyone's best interest.

  • RAS

    When I look at Herman Cain I see a real American that can put his hand on the Bible and honestly swear allegiance to our Constitution and the freedom and liberty that it guarantees. The Left can make no such claim with the majority of its would be leaders. Comprised of corrupt power brokers, supported by an army of guilt ridden "Lily White" Liberals who follow blindly the foolish belief that wealth must be redistributed to put "things right," the Left continues to keep the majority of Black Americans impoverished and misinformed. I share no such guilt having grown up in a poor, racially-mixed neighborhood. I have experienced racial hatred first hand and have long since moved beyond it and the games the Left use to divide us. Herman Cain for President; a real leader, with vast experience and talent. And by the way, I believe that he is black.

    • Questions

      So why do blacks vote 95% or more Democrat? Did someone brainwash them? Or is it that they vote their interests — affirmative action, reparations, expanding welfare state, ghetto lotttery lawsuits? Thing Democrats like.

      • Poppakap

        They vote what they think are their interests. But this problem isn't limited to blacks, just amplified by them due to the intergenerational poverty and other social pathologies indemic to black communities. Russians supported communism, and they are white.

        Unfortunately, most people have limited critical thinking skills and can't see beyond tomorrow. So they clamor for those ideas that promise something for nothing today. Blacks vote for democrats for the same reason so many Americans live with unsustainable credit card debt; instant gratification. It has taken many years to clearly see how leftist policies have destroyed the black family. But the evidence is now undeniable. Dems ruled the federal power structure in the US for over 40 years while black neighborhoods rotted. The dems answer? Double down on the policies, again and again and again. It is painfully sad. That is why blacks in increasing numbers are considering the promise of limited government and individual liberty; it won them freedom originally, and it can do it again. The process will take time, but conservatives aren't alarmed; it took 70 years for blacks to embrace the left, and it may take that much time for them to return to their true political roots. But it will happen.

    When citizens have the power to vote for the redistribution of wealth and they are the recipients of that wealth, they will vote that way 100% of the time. No philosophical waxing about this side of history or that, or what’s right or wrong will sway that immoral compass. It’s institutionalized theft, plain and simple. And the Democrats know this every time they send the mobs out to lynch a black conservative. How else do you explain conservative Michael Steele’s loss to a pathetic, no record of results white Democrat in a largely black district? The Democrat pledged to keep the public assistance flowing and that

    message was heard more loudly than the one of personal responsibility and self reliance that Steele expressed.

Forget this bogeyman of "liberal racism" (when was the last time a KKK member was in the Democrats — 40 years ago?), and focus on the real problem: the gradual surrender of whites' will to protect their own.

    Nothing is more threatening to guilty white liberals than a black person who wanders off the liberal plantation and finally figures out that he can do just fine on his own, without his condescending white liberal overseers and their family destroying policies.

    Therefore…….Herman Cain must be destoyed, at all costs!!

    The Race Industry must be preserved, at all costs!!

    You would think he would understand it, Daniel, because it's called HISTORY. You can try to say this is about liberals not liking Herman Cain. But considering I'm no liberal, and sure as hell am not a conservative, you clearly don't get it.

    I speak to the substance of Cain's comments. They are beyond ignorant and have no basis of fact. When did that fact have to be seen through an ideological prism?

    • jasonz

      they are not ignorant at all. its very clear who has the black community by the short and curlies and it aint the repubs. look at the black dem districts and you see, you want to talk about HISTORY then IGNORE all of it or split hairs to the point of lunacy. the black dem leadership preaches NOTHING but contempt for America, Contempt for capitialism, and contempt for anyone who dares to seperate them from theit precious welfare and victim ideology. you want to argure that neither side is perfect..ok ill agree with you. but to try and compare the racism of dems to the lil bit of repubs is laughable. the black culture is based on the perpetuation of victimhood, race baiting, class warfare and self pity. look at any dem run district to proove my point. look at history to figure out that the racism jackson and sharpton perpetuatuate is a figment of their imagination designed for self engrandizing and power grabs.

    An observation from New Zealand: me thinks the Democrats are a very worried bunch of losers. Go Herman, the world's economics could do with a decent dose of practicality. He would most certainly get my vote if I were an American.

  • bernard ross

    blacks are not genetically disposed to democrats, welfare, or big government. this has been a transitional period from slavery through segretion through racism where protection and livelihood were sought from govt. However, times are changing and free independent black Americans that do not want their lives taken care of by the govt(hence the term plantation) will gravitate more and more to a changing republican party that welcomes independent people of like minds. the more blacks become independent the less they will want to rely on govt for handouts. However, this is not to say that cpitalism is king and socialism is dead: both are dead because neither can distribute fairly the production gains of technology.

    You know its pretty sickening that some people are not voting for candidates based on their qualifications, their honor and integrity, and their experience. Cain has alot of experience in Business and Finance and quite frankly he does have alot of Common sense, (Not Political Ideas.) I don't care what nationality people are as long as they are honest and promote healthy policies that actually help people. The Government is supposed to work for the people, but the Democrats would rather sacrifice prosperity, jobs, security, and morality rather than admit they are wrong on their policies. And yes, The Black People have been Brainwashed into a pattern of thinking and thats why they stay in poverty. Mr. Cain shows he is a smart man that worked his hind tail off to get where he is today! Kudos to him!

  • James Emerson

    this post gets history all wrong, and if you excuse the pun, is a white-wash of History. It was "Democrats" who voted for Jim Crow or Civil Rights acts. It was Southerners, regardless of party. The entire Democratic Party OUTSIDE the South voted for the Civil Rights act, the LONE Republican Senator in the South (John Tower of Texas) also voted against the Civil Rights Act. It was after the Civil Rights Act that politicians of the South became Republicans (See Black & Black The Rise of Southern Republicans and Society in the South). There is no other reason that the leader of the Dixiecrats, Strom Thurmond, became a Republican in 1964 and President Johnson said, after the vote, "we (the Democratic Party) lost the South for a generation."
    The Democrats are not the racists, liberals are not the racists, the conservative Southerners were the racists that still perpetuate a divided America into the 21st Century.

    • tagalog

      Well that analysis certainly explains the existence of the Solid South!

    • trickyblain

      Bingo. It's pretty simple, actually. But folks here are predisposed to making things up to fit with preprogrammed pseudo-ideology (Democrats = Bad | Republicans = Good.

      Beats having to understand American history.

    Palin's out so it's Cain for me and my family.

    No one else will do-no more establishment RINO'S-hopefully Obama, Jarrett, Holder et al wings will begin to melt-

    • mlcblog

      You are so right. Cain is the only true conservative.

  • jasonz

    the reasong the vote dem is simple. the dems NEVER gave up on slavery. they just expanded and refined it. why just have families own black when you can own everyone as a govt official? And why force people into slavery? when you do that the slave tries to escape. you have poor work and revolts. Insteas give the slave a few shiny trinkets, tell them that they are not enslaved but owed and being 'supported'. tell them that food, shelter etc is a right and give them the worst of it. this way you turn a slave into a pet. a slave revolts, a slave wants freedom. a pet not only does not want freedom, but loves their masters, defends their owners and will bite any 'racists' who dare give them their freedom. so to all the feisty blacks voting dem…"sit (on your ass), stay(in the getto), beg(for your welfare), riot(and destroy your own neighborhoods and people), protest(for more enslavement from the govt), vote (democrat)…good doggy!"

    Margaret Sanger “More children from the fit, less from the unfit–that is the

    chief aim of birth control”–Birth Control Review,May1919,p.12.

    The Census Bureau reported in 1974 that the decline in fertility in the U.S. was

    most pronounced among Blacks, American Indians, and Mexican Americans.

    Michael Schwartz, “Bringing the Sexual Revolution Home: Planned Parenthood’s

    ‘PP’s Five -Year Plan’ “, America, Feb 18, 1978.

    Over 70% of black families were intact till Uncle Sam came to rescue.

    Look at the destruction of black families now, after Uncle Sam’s handouts.

    See Star Parkers book, Uncle Sam’s Plantation, a book most blacks

    enamored with Obamaitis prefer to ignore.

    Star Parker like Cain, Ben Carson, & Clarence Thomas and others

    who have had the mental strength to leave the plantation, against

    all odds.

    My hats off to them.

      Oh, thank God. I thought the demise of the Black family had to do with rayguns war on drugs. Well, that and the greater percent of Blacks being given longer sentances than their White counterparts.

      Wow, talk about a partys failure to admit policy failure.

  • Jim

    The Republican Party Elders along with the media tried to obscure Mr Cain as much as possible. He is not the grey beards choice. Mit Romney is.
    Unfortunately Mit has had a record as a destroyer of jobs for cash in return; which enabled Ted Kennedy to defeat Mit.

    This record of Mits will not lie fallow during the campaign if MIT wins the nomination.
    Jobs are a very sensitive subject these days.

    Mr Cain speaks a language little heard recently.I think it's called" common sense". The public has heard the sweet sound and they know it is like the sound of distant trumpets calling them join together for new beginning and a restoration of reason.

    • Dennis X

      I don't think they really want romney , but he's the only one who could win.

  • sandykramer

    Methinks the onerous spirit of Anita Hill still walks our nation's pathways. The thought of a black, conservative Republican, is anathema to the the liberal mindset.

  • Questions

    Why should we whites be so concerned about doing things for blacks? How about doing a few things right by whites for a change — like protection from flash mobs?

  • Truthteller

    According to all the figures that Horowitz quotes, the answer is a definitive yes.

  • Poppakap

    We aren't concerned about doing things for blacks specifically, but for all Americans. However, the divide and conquer strategy so eloquently elevated by leftist politicians is part and parcel of the democratic platform. Blacks often ask, "what are you going to do for the black community?" because they've been taught to ask that by the left.

    What the hell does our discussion have to do with flash mobs anyway? Do you understand what non sequitur or extra-topical mean? One of the dumbest things I've heard uttered by a troll in days…

  • Questions

    Here's the issue: The Democrats are, and have been for decades, the party of anti-white activism. It is the logical home of the blacks. And there is no way that nominating Herman Cain will change that — any more than nominating Alan Keyes for U.S. senator from Illinois changed that in 2004. You remember that race. Keyes was our "best black." And his opponent was Barack Obama.

  • Questions

    Blacks are not "victims" of the Left. They are victimizers of whites. And, yes, flash mobs and similar maladies have everything to do with this. Who's dumb again?
