Consider this a sample of the ugly that the left is going to bring against Herman Cain.
Power Line: On Friday, AlterNet--you know, the organization that "confront[s] the failures of corporate media, as well as the vitriol and disinformation of right wing media, especially 'hate talk' media"--published a vile attack on conservative businessman Herman Cain, who was the last speaker at CPAC:
In the immortal words of Megatron in Transformers: The Movie, Herman Cain's speech at CPAC really is bad comedy. As you know, I find
black garbage pail kidsblack conservatives fascinating not because of what they believe, but rather because of how they entertain and perform for their White Conservative masters. ...Instead, Herman Cain's shtick is a version of race minstrelsy where he performs "authentic negritude" as wish fulfillment for White Conservative fantasies. ...
We always need a monkey in the window, for he/she reminds us of our humanity while simultaneously reinforcing a sense of our own superiority. Sadly, there are always folks who are willing to play that role because it pays so well.Although I read some lefty sites, Alertnet was unknown to me, so I checked out their mission statement. Here is what they claim:
AlterNet is an award-winning news magazine and online community that creates original journalism and amplifies the best of hundreds of other independent media sources. AlterNet’s aim is to inspire action and advocacy on the environment, human rights and civil liberties, social justice, media, health care issues, and more. Since its inception in 1998, AlterNet.org has grown dramatically to keep pace with the public demand for independent news. We provide free online content to millions of readers, serving as a reliable filter, keeping our vast audience well-informed and engaged, helping them to navigate a culture of information overload and providing an alternative to the commercial media onslaught. Our aim is to stimulate, inform, and instigate.I'd hate to think about what kind of action Alternet is advocating by publishing racist screeds.
I have mentioned many times before that liberals get away with their racism, because black liberals simply do not hold them accountable. Black liberals will riot in the streets over blatant racist remarks from the right, however the very same blacks find their mouths full of excuses when white liberals expose their blatant racism.
The sad truth is that just like Joe Biden, Bill Clinton and Harry Reid, Alternet will pay no price for their racism.
If Herman Cain is preparing to run, he had better get ready to bring some ugly of his own, because it will only get worse.
