Cain is the Real Thing (He has his roots in the core American and African-American experience)
American Thinker ^ | 10/28/2011 | James Lewis

Posted on 10/28/2011 7:49:55 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Al Sharpton said the other day that Herman Cain is not a real African-American, a little slander that the nasty left took up with its usual sadistic glee. But Herman Cain is one of the few real African-Americans in politics today. Cain has his roots in the core American and African-American experience over the centuries. Cain is real.

Obama has no roots. He can't be blamed for the fact that he's a Hawaiian-Indonesian-Kenyan-college campus blend. Obama has rarely (if ever) even lived in a black neighborhood. The white half of his family comes from Kansas and the black half comes straight from Kenya. Obama's only consistency in life has been the radical left, which is where his real loyalties seem to lie. Herman Cain has real roots, not ghostwritten, made-up, far-left fantasies.

There's a reason why Obama called his autobiography Dreams from My Father. In his adult life Obama never met his Kenyan father; Obama Sr. is a pure fantasy object in Obama's life. He met him only once as a child. All he has is dreams.

You can feel Cain's realness in your bones. You don't even have to look at his spectacular resume. He's a guy we could be proud of at the helm of state. His very being and achievements are an answer to all the left's phony moaning about this country. What the left hates about this country is its spectacular success, not its times of failure.

We'll have plenty of opportunity to debate Cain's political positions, his 9-9-9 proposal (it's not a fixed plan yet, certainly not legislation, but it's a clear signal of his political philosophy, which is what we can look for at this point in the race).

Just wish Fox would give him a little more support. Chris Wallace was down playing his campaign this AM on Fox and Friends, only giving positive support to Romney and Perry.

There is no such thing as an African American. Cain is an American.

“Al Sharpton said the other day that Herman Cain is not a real African-American,”

Why, because he left the nanny state plantation? Cain is a real as one can get. Jesse and Al are besides themselves, they know if more blacks see Cains’ realism, they will lose their base.

Cain is a descendant of African slaves.

0bamao is a descendent of African slave TRADERS.

Cain knows what it’s like to work your way through college, to have a real work-a-day job with real responsibilities.

0bamao was a pampered protege and companion of known communists, never worked an honest day in his life.

Cain pulled himself up from the bootstraps to become CEO of a nation-wide corporation, directly responsible for the jobs of thousands of employees, all of whom that have been interviewed speak very highly of him. He has presented innovative genius in his corporate life, and he speaks from the heart, without notes.

0bamao was a “community organizer”, a socialist activist, and his career, if that’s what you can call it, has been nothing but political. He is narcissistic and arrogant. People mistake his cleverness for intelligence. He cannot give a speech without a teleprompter.

Obama has no roots.

Actually, Obama has deep roots in the slave trading part of the business. Slavery started in about the 8th century with the discovery of coffee in Kenya and an alliance between Muslim Arabs and Somali and Kenyan tribes to enslave their rivals to meet the demand for domestication of the crop.

Obama's tribe was the last to give up slave trading when the British were finally forced to colonize Kenya at the end of the 19th century to put an end to the practice. The Mau-mau and all opposition to British colonization originated from his tribe which resented being toppled from this top spot which they had enjoyed for more than 11 centuries.

As an amateur genealogist, I have looked into Obama's claimed African roots and something even more curious is evident-- the paternal lines go back generations; the maternal lines stop after a generation or two. One of the perks of slave trading was that you got first pick of the women for your multiple wives and concubines. I know enough about Arab Muslim culture to understand the importance of genealogical records. Many of them brag that they can trace their roots back to Abraham and Adam. When a maternal line disappears so easily, it is usually because the origin was unknown as would be the case for a captured slave pressed into being a wife or concubine.

A open letter to Herman Cain Supporters,

What is it with you Cain People? Isn’t it clear by now that your candidate is just Mitt’s stalking horse?

Sure he is up in all the polls, but those polls mean nothing. Besides PMS-NBC and The New York Slimes says Cain is just a poor Minstrel putting on a show for Redneck Racist Terrorist that make up the ‘Teabagger’ party.

Face it there is little difference between the Cain and Mitt, why Cain even supported Mitt in 2008!

Have you Cain people no shame? Does/nt it embarrassed you you that your candidate is little more that Mitt’s errand boy? Everyone knows that even should Cain win with 51% of the delegates he will just turn them over to Mitt.

Clearly you are embarrassing yourself and the Republican Party with your support of a man who is blatantly using the nominating process to sell books and get a nice cushy job on Fox.

How can you take Cain seriously? The man has no money? How can he run a serious campaign when he has no slush fund to pay bribes and hush money from? Why expect any day now Cain will have to start delivering pizzas just to make ends meet.

Sure Cain has a plan, but it’s not a prefect plan and yes its easy to understand and yet you don’t understand that’s part of what is wrong with Cain’s plan! Mitt has shown that a good tax plan can not be printed on anything less than whole forest worth of paper. And that we don’t need to understand a plan, because we will be told what’s in it by our high dollar accountants once its past.

Lastly I must ask you do you Cain supporters know that Cain has horns and a tail?

For the good of the party and the country please help us get Cain out of the race and allow the only person that can beat Barack Obama, (Fill in this Blank) to win the nomination.

If you doubt any of the claims I have stated just grab the nearest Perry or Paul supporter and they will be more than willing to verify all including the horns and tail thing.

You've made another excellent point. Among thousands of former employees, not one has yet come forward to "Anita Hill" Herman Cain. You would think the MSM could find one. They may yet find one malcontent among thousands. You know when they do, he or she will be on the MSM 24/7 to try and exact revenge no matter how trivial the connection.

Meanwhile, former supporters of Obama who have gone sour on him have become non stories.

What a stupid thing to say. Cain was born and raised in the United States; his parents were born and raised in the United States. They have no "African-American experience".

As Cain says, he is a "black American", not an "African-American".

Why? The media loves Herman Cain right now. He is still widely considered unelectable, and he is helping keep any other conservatives from gaining ground.

There HAVE been quotes from former Godfather's pizza workers and executives questioning the narrative, but they are NOT being given national news prominence.

Now, once Cain is our nominee, or is the only conservative left standing against Romney, do you think the media will still refrain from covering these people? Or finding more people?

Do you think they won't be highlighting how he made his fortune by laying off regular folks from their jobs?

Cain would be better off if they WERE covering that now, because he could answer it, and it would be old news.

We saw what the media did to Palin. Remember all the "she isn't experienced enough"? Remember how they brutally attacked her for every minor perceived misstatement? Cain has made bad policy statements worse than any gaffe Palin ever committed, and he's been given a pass by the MSM -- but don't expect that do continue. They haven't BEGUN to attack Cain like they attacked Palin, or how they attacked Perry. The only other candidate who has gotten such good treatment is Romney.

I don't like people trying to label me. African- American is socially acceptable for some people, but I am not some people."

Romney's media blood bath is just ahead if he gets the nomination. And that's a big if.

The won't bludgeon him over his Obama-lite positions (which they largely agree with); they will bludgeon him over religion to such an extent that it will make all the Mormon-hating trolls who slither all over this forum look like the rank amateurs which they are.

Thank you onyx. They only use African, Hispanic American or whatever to further racial discord. It’s so silly. I don’t give a hoot if they are pink with purple polka dots. Are they American and can they lead this country in the right direction?

I guess that's the problem with Cain -- no matter what you think he said, he's also got a quote saying something else.

Cain: I prefer Black American:

“I prefer black American,” Cain told NBC’s Meet the Press. “My roots go back through slavery in this country. Yes, they came from Africa, but the roots of my heritage are in the United States of America. So I consider myself a black American.”
This is the quote I was referencing; he doesn't like being called an "African-American", he said he considered himself a "black American".

So who cares that some otehr time he said something different. Or are we only allowed to use the quotes YOU like?

I don’t always disagree. But I didn’t think quoting Cain would be disagreeable. It’s been a while since I got attacked for using the wrong quote from a candidate.
