Racial Politics “Returns” with Cain Allegations

In News on November 12, 2011 at 5:28 pm

Unlike other Presidential candidates, Herman Cain, former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, is unafraid to do whatever it takes to win, whether it’s make illogical statements, insensitive statements (such as instead of marching, protestors should just “go get a job”), and so forth. So it wasn’t a stunner when Cain said that three allegations of sexual harassment filed against him were tantamount to a “high tech lynching.”

If this charming term sounds familiar to you, it’s because Clarence “Uncle” Thomas used the same term when allegations of sexual harassment were made against him as well twenty or so years ago.

Now, obviously, everyone has a right (if not a civic and/or moral duty) to file a complaint when one feels or is sexually harassed; so what Cain is essentially doing, is trying to distract attention away from the allegations and those individuals making the claims. If one person claiming sexual harassment could be exaggerating things, statistically speaking how likely is it that all three women are over reacting or just imagining things or just trying to attack poor Herman Cain?

In my humble opinion, there has to be some meat on them bones if three women are complaining about the same thing during the same period of time and all three were paid to keep quiet, and that race has nothing to do with the issue. Acting like a responsible and mature adult man has everything to do with it, and keeping fidelity and faith with your wife.

But, hey, if Herman wants to claim electronic “lynching” somehow or imply that everybody is out to get him, in order to deflect attention away from the three allegations of inappropriate conduct, that is his right as well.

Ultimately, this has to come down to potential voters being able to discern nonsense from sense. Let’s all cross our fingers on that one.

Here’s the link to Herman Cain’s claims:
