Message to Herman Cain

The greeting on your website says, "we are looking forward to hearing from you", but I'm not sure you will be looking forward to hearing from me, Mr. Cain.

I saw on the Internet that you called the President a liar. I deplore what you are doing and the things you are saying about the President in order to gain favor with these greedy, thieving, selfish, Republicans. How dare you call President Obama a liar. You are a pathetic, obviously brainwashed Black man who has lost his way and his mind. You have had opportunity and a smattering of privilege in America that has made you forget your roots. I despise people like you and Clarence Thomas, and you both have Georgia roots.

What is it with you Black men from the south who grow up in an oppressed environment and end up siding with the oppressor? The recent case of Troy Davis in Georgia is an excellent example of the present day oppression and legal lynching that still takes place in that state and in this country. The political party that you praise so highly is presently enacting laws to suppress the Black vote, the student vote, and many elderly voters across this entire country. Yet, you choose to stand with people who display such obscene and un-American behavior. You would throw Black people (including the President of the U.S.) and others under the bus to curry favor with these non-caring and hedonistic people.

You were there when your Republican cohorts cheered about the death penalty which disproportionately affects Black men and women in this country - some of whom have been proven to be innocent. You should be ashamed to stand with these people and yet, you appear to be proud of such an association.

Yes, President Obama does believe in fairness and sharing the responsibility of the tax burden, it is not socialism nor is it class warfare, and he is not a liar for saying it. That kind of rhetoric from you and those with whom you identify is nothing more than a weak defense for the greedy and despicable philosophy that you choose to embrace.

You had the unmitigated gall to tell Wolf Blitzer on CNN that two thirds of African American people are brainwashed and incapable of thinking for themselves. You are surely touched in the head. The millions of us who are capable of thinking for ourselves - we know who is really brainwashed - you - brainwashed whiter than snow.

Do you really think those people with whom you stand on the debating platform really respect you and see you as their equal? They as well as others see you as a joke and a person who is engaging in buffoonery. A Republican majority House and Senate would never pass your "so-called" 999 plan. They would never deem it in their best interest. Besides, there are many who believe your plan is a coded message from Satan. If you flip the numbers they become the 666 plan.

You will never be President of this country, and I thank God for that. I must say, you certainly live up to your last name. Just as Cain in the Bible so blatantly slew his brother, you are equally willing to do the same politically and economically to millions of Black and middle class citizens of this country. Such behavior is extremely ugly, and need I remind you, Mr. Cain, that God does not like ugly.

P.S. If it wasn't for the fact that I'm having a nice day, I would tell you what I really think about you.

NOTE: I don't know who originally wrote this 'Message to Herman Cain' ... but it expresses my thoughts about the candidate perfectly! -- Villager

I have no problem with blacks who hold conservative values. However, I cannot understand why they would vote Republican. We've seen blacks like Herman Cain before and they seem to be creeping up more in the age of Obama. When Cain's white supporters are done with him, they'll discard him quicker than you can say "9-9-9"! As bad as I think Cain and his rhetoric are, Allen West is even worse to me!

By the way, did you hear the comments made by black conservative activist Apostle Claver? I wrote about them here:

I +1 this post. Earlier you asked " What is it with you Black men from the south who grow up in an oppressed environment and end up siding with the oppressor? " The same can be asked of kidnapped children that sympathize with their kidnappers (stockholm syndrome). Result of Post Traumatic Slavery Disorder?

You should actually send this to him!

@Malcolm...I believe you are distinguishing for the readership between conservative viewpoints and the agenda of the Republican Party. The two are confusing to some and there are others that have blurred boundaries.

Apostle Claver & Allen West are nightmares who've become reality intruders and their comments would indicate that they are suffering from PTSD or something far sinister.

The evangelical right wing movement has attracted a number of black folks whose religiosity has
overwhelmed their political sensibilities. Their comments would indicate that they would support a theocracy. Frightening!!!

This letter was posted on another blog as well and is so on point.

THANK YOU so much, Bro. Villager for posting this!!!

YES; it IS on point!!!

Villager said...

Malcolm - I also don't understand how any African American can be supportive of the Republican platform. I've yet to see any Republican candidate at national or state level with any amount of empathy towards the issues that impact the African American community.

Also ... thanks for the link to your blog. I think that Claver went over the line with his remarks. He seemed to be living in a previous era and wasn't much relevant with today's issues or politics.

Asad - Asante sana for the +1 share!

Carolyn - The 'open letter to Cain' came to me as one of those mass email forwards from a friend. The beauty of having a blog is that you can post something for posterity rather than use mass email for distribution.

CC-Groovy - Share with others as you deem fit!

Great post Villager, I don't agree with many decisions made by President Obama related to his political appointments. Particularly his advisors, Treasury and Education Secretaries. I'm particularly disappointed with the Presidents decision to open the doors of Treasury to Wall Street and Banks, under the notion of they are too big to fail. However, there is no way on God's earth that I would vote for any of the Republican candidates. Cain would never get my vote, so at this point I would somewhat reluctantly, support President Obama for a second term. I have voted the lesser of the two evils many times, so I'm going to vote the lesser, again.

Screw HermanCain and the rest of the damn Republicans. Herman Cain hates himself and black people. He is a negro that is out of his mind...

Villager said...

AAP - I appreciate your perspective on both Cain and Obama. I'm curious as to why you don't like Arne Duncan, Department of Education secretary? I'm thinking that he's been effective in getting more money for the Education Department...

Villager said...

All - I guess that Herman Cain is having some second thoughts about running for President now. I wonder if his staff has called the staff of Jesse Jackson or John Edwards to figure out what worked and didn't work in their sex scandal situations when they ran for President?

Carolyn Moon said...

Cain wouldn't want to consort with the enemy by calling on these two for advice. Bro. Villager..have you any additional information on Mondo Frazier? He's supposedly has a book about to be published in re: to the President which is another effort to get him out of office. Interesting tidbits are that he MAY have spied for the CIA while attending Columbia University. He's a nervous wreck and COULD be addicted to benzos and he's back to chain smoking. e.g. yelling at staff and throwing temper tantrums. Also, that there are ex-CIA operatives traveling the globe accumulating documents and in my opinion fraudulent information to undermine his re-election efforts.

I know this has nothing to do with Cain, however, I wanted to make sure that you are aware of it in case you hadn't been informed. Where does the soul of a black man goes to rest. (Randall Robinson cited this in one of his books)

Carolyn Moon said...

Correction on the Mondo book. It's out now...

Villager said...

Carolyn - I've not heard of Mondo or his book. I'll check it out...
