Damned if you do. Damned if you don’t. If you reject the policies of President Obama, you’re a racist. If you support the policies of Herman Cain, you’re a racist. What’s a “white” person to do?
As soon as someone plays the race card, you know that they lost the debate. It’s a 5th-grader’s playground trump card to win an argument he just lost in front of his friends. He got stomped, so he yells out, “Your mother wears army boots!” Liberalism can’t stand facts, and they can’t believe that opposition or support of a candidate is based on policy considerations. Sure, there are bigots out there . . . in both parties. Keep in mind that it was the Democrats that supported Jim Crow laws in the South. Following the logic of today’s race baiters, when Democrats began to reject these laws, they were racists.
The white queen of hate, illogic, and stupidity, Janeane Garofalo, said this about Republicans who support Herman Cain for president in 2012.
People like Karl Rove liked to keep the racism very covert. And so Herman Cain provides this great opportunity say you can say ‘Look, this is not a racist, anti-immigrant, anti-female, anti-gay movement. Look we have a black man.
Karl Rove? Once again, it’s “everything is Bush’s fault” syndrome. In case you don’t know, Mr. Cain “is a businessman, a talk show host, a former executive of several multi-billion dollar companies. . . . He has for the last several years been a mainstay at Tea Party rallies all across the country and draws big, enthusiastic crowds among these conservative activists. He’s a powerful speaker and really knows how to wind up an audience. Lately he’s won several straw polls and is ranked no less than the number 3 candidate to take the Republican nomination. He is also black.”
Black comedian D.L. “Doc” Hughley has made similar comments about Cain.
Apparently, Herman Cain’s victory in the GOP Florida straw poll was too much for the liberal-minded Hughley to bear. On September 27, Hughley launched into a stream of demeaning, racially charged tweets about Cain on his Twitter account @RealDLHughley, which his loyal followers responded to in kind. You may remember Hughley’s fleeting CNN talk show was cancelled in 2009 because he said during an interview with former RNC Chairman Michael Steele “the Republican National Convention literally looks like Nazi Germany.”
Typical of liberal-minded, tolerant Democrats, there was a stream of bigoted comments to follow. Cain was compared to the “original Cream of Wheat,” “Stepin Fetchit” and the “butler in Gone with the Wind.” Do you remember when Michael Steele was running for the Senate in Maryland? They pelted him with Oreo cookies to identify him as “black on the outside and white on the inside.” Here’s how the Washington Times reported the story:
Black Democratic leaders in Maryland say that racially tinged attacks against Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele in his bid for the U.S. Senate are fair because he is a conservative Republican.
Such attacks against the first black man to win a statewide election in Maryland include pelting him with Oreo cookies during a campaign appearance, calling him an “Uncle Tom” and depicting him as a black-faced minstrel on a liberal Web log.

Delegate Salima Siler Marriott, a black Baltimore Democrat, said Mr. Steele invites comparisons to a slave who loves his cruel master or a cookie that is black on the outside and white inside because his conservative political philosophy is, in her view, anti-black.
“Because he is a conservative, he is different than most public blacks, and he is different than most people in our community,” she said. “His politics are not in the best interest of the masses of black people.”
So who’s really on the Plantation? Who’s beholden to their “masters”? Those who support the Democrat Party. If a black man attempts to escape and head for freedom, he or she will be dragged back and told to vote for their masters or else. It’s no wonder that Herman Cain said that Blacks “have been brainwashed into not being open-minded, not even considering a conservative point of view,” especially since Democrat policies have kept so many blacks in poverty as well as a lot of poor whites for more than four decades.
