Racists of the Left Fear, Attack Herman Cain

By Proof

Despicable doesn't even begin to describe this (via Hot Air):

In the immortal words of Megatron in Transformers: The Movie, Herman Cain’s speech at CPAC really is bad comedy. As you know, I find black garbage pail kids black conservatives fascinating not because of what they believe, but rather because of how they entertain and perform for their White Conservative masters.

When race minstrelsy was America’s most popular form of mass entertainment, black actors would often have to pretend to be white men, who then in turn would put on the cork to play the role of the “black” coon, Sambo, or Jumping Jim Crow. Adding insult to injury, in a truly perverse and twisted example of the power of American white supremacy black vaudevillians would often pretend to be white in order to denigrate black people for the pleasures of the white gaze. …

In total, CPAC is a carnival and a roadshow for reactionary Conservatives. It is only fitting that in the great tradition of the freak show, the human zoo, the boardwalk, and the great midway world’s fairs of the 19th and 20th centuries, that there is a Borneo man, a Venus Hottentot or a tribe of cannibals from deepest darkest Africa or Papua New Guinea on display. For CPAC and the White Conservative imagination, Herman Cain and his black and brown kin are that featured attraction.

We always need a monkey in the window, for he/she reminds us of our humanity while simultaneously reinforcing a sense of our own superiority. Sadly, there are always folks who are willing to play that role because it pays so well.

"Monkey in the window"? A scum sucking liberal writing for the site "AlterNet", which I shall not link to here, trots out every racist slur they can imagine and then projects them onto conservatives. To me, this much vitriol* must be genuine and heartfelt, not imagined. This may be due in part, because they have an "alternate" reality in which black is white, right is wrong and intolerance is tolerance.

When it comes to race relations in America, and matters of racial prejudice:
The Leftie doth protest too much, methinks.

  1. Now people can see the Left for the disingenuous worms that they actually are- simply appalling, the same type of slurs they lied about the TEA Party shouting on the Capitol steps!

    Like Ann Coulter said, if you want to know what the Left's up to, just look at the latest thing they're accusing YOU of lol- it's true, too

  2. OT,

    Over at LR you said you grew up in the emerald triangle. I was a denizen of Redway, Whitethorn, Briceland.

    Do I know your parents or grand parents?

    Leave a reply here: any post.

  3. I think this is just more of that "new civility" I keep hearing about.

  4. RR: I hear you. Some of the leftie trolls I run into have more projection than a multiplex!

    Dean: Civility on the Left has always been either a mask, or a sign that they were out of power.

    A liberal with power is one nasty creature.

  5. Between this and the many things that have happened to Clarence Thomas, it just doesn't get any more vile. How the msm can void talking about this, I don't know. Herman Cain is such a decent man. It's a crying shame.

  6. These vile comments about Mr. Cain are the type of leftist diatribe that seeks to volatize honest discussion and contributes nothing to the betterment of America.

  7. It's the "new civility" don'tcha know?

  8. Check out this short video compilation highlighting some of the differences in worldview between Mr. Cain and President Obama and his administration. Clearly Mr. Cain advocates for an empowerment society and Mr. Obama advocates for victimhood and entitlements, in exchange for votes. When Herman Cain debates Obama on race, my sense is that Mr. Cain will take the president to the woodshed.
