Fellow Black Conservative Thanks Herman Cain
I wish to thank Herman Cain for his courageous decision to run for president as a conservative Republican. I am sure he anticipated opposition from the left. But no one could have possibly anticipated the current level of intense hatred and vitriolic desire to politically tie a rope around his neck and drag his bludgeoned black carcass through the streets in the mud. Wow! Lord help us.
I thank Cain because his decision to run is much bigger than he is. At a time when something has gone terribly wrong in the black community (70% black high school dropout rate and 73% out-of-wedlock births), black youths need to see a man such as Cain -- one of character and self reliance.
Cain's remarkable life story equals a nuclear bomb of truth being thrown into the black community. His success derails the "you cannot succeed without us and our programs" rhetoric Democrats have been selling to blacks for the past 50 years. Desperate and frantic, the Democrats' clarion call to their minions and the liberal media is, politically, Herman Cain must be eliminated!
Channel-surfing, I was stunned, shocked, and outraged. The same white liberal pundits who, without a shred of evidence, declared the Tea Party racist were all over TV ravenously "high-tech lynching" Herman Cain, a black man, for being a conservative republican. These pious, self-proclaimed most tolerant among us viciously attacked Cain in every way, from his character to his intellect. It was shameful, and it made me extremely angry.
The Tea Party has grown tremendously -- not only in numbers, but in depth -- over the past two and half years. Tried and true liberal media "hit" tactics no longer work. We began as fragmented bands of frustrated citizens fearful of the direction in which Obama and company is taking our country. Today, the Tea Party has developed into numerous organized groups, an army of patriots -- well prepared, well-informed, and ready for political battle.
Along with our earned political sophistication comes total awareness of the pathetically transparent attempt to knock Cain out of the presidential race via ridiculously weak charges of sexual harassment. Again, displaying their arrogance and shameful hypocrisy, the same people who are attacking Cain rallied around their beloved poster child of "proven" sexual harassment, Bill Clinton.
Efforts to destroy Cain are proving fruitless, as evidenced by the rise in financial contributions to his presidential campaign.
Please forgive me for presuming to speak for the Christians in our Tea Party family when I say to our brother Cain that we are praying for you. I personally believe and offer this scripture to you: "No weapon formed against you shall prosper."
These knucklehead liberal political hacks and their media are stuck in the past. They erroneously still believe they set the rules, can successfully "take out" our candidates, and can anoint their own candidates for us. They are mistaken. There's a new, John Wayne0style sheriff in town called the Tea Party -- kickin' butt and takin' names.
Herman Cain, bottom line: we, your Tea Party family have got your back! Hang in there and keep the faith. Millions are behind your efforts 100%.
Allow me to make myself perfectly clear. I am not suggesting that the Tea Party has formally endorsed Cain as our presidential nominee. I simply wish to comfort Cain with the knowledge that judging from the character of the patriots I have met at rallies across America on five national Tea Party Express bus tours, we firmly stand in solidarity with him, our brother patriot, against a vile, "sold-out to liberalism and socialism" liberal media and Democratic Party.
In conclusion, I encourage Cain, my fellow black conservative patriot brother: "Run, Herman, run!"
