The news that former presidential candidate Herman Cain joined Fox News as a contributor last month got some negative reviews from media pundits and one writer believes the criticism of Mr. Cain is racist and comparable to the violence inflicted on African-American protesters during the Civil Rights movement. In an article that appeared Friday on “Big Journalism,” the media section of the conservative web network started by the late Andrew Breitbart, writer John Nolte compared members of the “media establishment” who have criticized Mr. Cain to infamous Alabama lawman Eugene “Bull” Connor, who notoriously ordered fire hoses and police dogs to be used against anti-Jim Crow protesters.

“No one is claiming Herman Cain is perfect, but there is no question he is currently being singled out as the sexualized clownish idiot based solely on the color of his skin. This is what the left and elite media always do to those who ‘don’t know their place,'” Mr. Nolte wrote. “In the segregated South, racist whites (almost all of them Democrats) used the exact same tactics to keep blacks from obtaining political power. The only difference is that today “Bull” Connor (another Democrat) is the media establishment, the dogs are the likes of Chuck Todd, Joe Scarborough, and Howard Kurtz, and the fire hose is The Narrative.” Continue reading “ Compares Herman Cain’s Critics to Jim Crow ‘Dog’ and ‘Fire Hose’ Attacks”

Former Republican presidential candidate blasted the New York Times on the website of his online TV network today in a column that claimed the paper put on “a white sheet and hood” by publishing an editorial that was critical of black Republicans on Wednesday. The Times article, which was written by University of Pennsylvania political science professor Adolph Reed Jr., was entitled “The Puzzle of Black Republicans” and argued “modern black Republicans have been more tokens than signs of progress.”

“It’s a shame the New York Times is such a racist newspaper,” Mr. Cain wrote in his response. Continue reading “Herman Cain Compares New York Times to the KKK”

Herman Cain: ‘Being Rich Is Cool’

Pizza magnate, former GOP presidential candidate and poet Herman Cain sent avery special email to his supporters explaining how excellent it is to be rich.” The missive was prompted by President Barack Obama’s now infamous “you didn’t build that” line, which has become a favorite target of conservatives. Mr. Cain argued the remark and the Obama campaign’s attacks on Mr. Romney’s tax returns and evolving story of his exit from Bain Capital as proof the president has a “disdain for the rich.”

“He doesn’t like you having all that money (unless you contribute it to his campaign), and he really doesn’t like you taking credit for having earned it,” wrote Mr. Cain.

As far as Mr. Cain is concerned, that argument neglects just how very awesome it is to have a lot of cash.

“What a load of crap. To listen to these people, you’d think being rich was the worst thing anyone could do,” Mr. Cain wrote. “Well I’ve got news for them: Being rich is cool.” Continue reading “Herman Cain: ‘Being Rich Is Cool’”

One Time Candidate Cain Turns Media CriticThe window in the suite on the 15th floor of the Paramount Hotel looked out over a billboard advertisement for Jesus Christ Superstar, and against the wall, CNN carried the live announcement of Rick Santorum abandoning his presidential bid.

When Herman Cain walked in a few moments after the press conference ended, and after spending another few long moments fiddling with the suite’s air conditioner—“Too much blowing air gives me a cold, my sinuses and stuff”—he immediately turned to his own decision to drop out of the race last December.

WASHINGTON — Herman Cain is exporting his “9-9-9 Plan” to the Land of the Rising Sun, but the Japanese version of Mr. Cain’s tax plan won’t be based on the number nine.

“It’s going to be 7-7-7 in Japan, because it’s revenue neutral,” Mr. Cain’s chief of staff, Mark Block, told The Politicker yesterday at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference.

In Japanese, “7-7-7” would be translated as either “Shichi-Shichi-Shichi” or “Nana-Nana-Nana.”

WASHINGTON — Herman Cain, erstwhile Republican frontrunner, former Godfather’s Pizza CEO and godfather of the “9-9-9 Plan,” stuck to his numerical schtick in his speech at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference today. He began by reciting a series of dates from the timeline of the Revolutionary War to introduce the idea that “we need another revolution in this country” to combat myriad crises facing the country; “an economic crisis,” an “energy crisis,” an “illegal immigration crisis,” a “foggy foreign policy crisis,” a “moral crisis” and “the biggest crisis we have” a “severe deficiency of leadership crisis.”

“We must outsmart the liberals. We must outsmart the stupid people that are trying to ruin America,” Mr. Cain said. “We outnumber the stupid people. Trust me, I counted them.”

Mr. Cain hewed to his numerical theme throughout his remarks including when he explained the “two reasons” he dropped out of the race after his series of sex scandals.

“There were two reasons I dropped out of the race; gutter politics and, number two, I chose to put family first,” Mr. Cain said. Continue reading “Herman Cain Does The Math: ‘We Outnumber The Stupid People’”
