Leftwing racism: Alternet's racist screed against Herman Cain

A few days ago I told you that 2012 was going to be brutal and that I wondered how Herman Cain would react to the wild attacks from the left that were sure to come.  

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 kids black 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.

In an odd way they did him a favor. He is getting a great deal of attention over this vile display of the "tolerant" left.

In another odd way, their attacks on him exposes them for what they truly are. Just like all the attacks on Palin, this one shows that the left is only hiding behind a veneer of tolerance and compassion.

Part of the reason I'm supporting Cain is because I think he's one of the few potential candidates who's exhibited the stones to call people out on crap like this.

If he does decide to run, I don't think you'll have to worry about him "bringing his own ugly." The Left had better think twice before trying this sort of crap again. Not only is the electorate in no mood for it...I don't think Cain is sort of man who's just going to roll over and take it.

That Alternet post was written by a BLACK blogger.

The left going after him is monumentally stupid. He was awesome at CPAC. Man after my own heart.

Forget wild, these attacks are well planned out and executed. Why do you think Palin's negatives are so high? Because she is dangerous to the left and must be eliminated as a serious political threat. Cain is in the same boat, pay attention because you will probably be able to match their attacks to 'Rules for Radicals'. This is just the beginning, because he, like you, has left the plantation, he must be totally destroyed. Think Anita Hill on steroids.
