Herman Cain versus the established idealogue

CHICAGO, October 12, 2011—Herman Cain cannot be President. Herman Cain puts the fear of God into establishment politicians of both the Republican and Democratic parties and the Black establishment. 

They fear him becuase he is telling all the people what they want to hear. And the people are believing him.

Afraid of Herman Cain are the political consultants - Karl Rove, David Axelrod, James Carville. These consultants are all cut from the same cloth,  or mold.  They share the same DNA.  They are not good or evil, legitimate or criminal.  Their job is to insure their clients, or parties, get elected and reelected by any means possible.    

They all agree on one thing.  At the end of the day, after all the money is spent, the attack ads run, and the little dirty tricksters are sent to their beds, elections are won by the candidate who appeals to the hopes and aspirations of the voters, while allaying their fears and anxieties. 

Which is why the establishment must all work together in perfect harmony to destroy destroy Herman Cain.

Some of the mud being slung is that Herman Cain is not Black enough, he is not part of the so called Black experience, he is an Uncle Tom, a racist, and all the other detestable insults that people of the narrative can come up with.  

The problem is that Cain is not part of the Black conditioning.  He is not brainwashed.  Cain is not a child of the entitlement class, he was not part of the movement.  He is not a liberal. 

Cain did not grow up poor.  He did not live on welfare.  He is not now, nor has he ever been, some wild eyed loud mouth with one fist up and one hand out.  He was not a preacher or entertainer.  All those people turned into professional protesters, ministers, politicians, and media darlings. And their victims still live in multi-generational poverty. 

Instead Herman Cain worked his way through school.  He played by the rules, worked hard, and made a success out of himself.  He embodies the dream and promise that anyone, even from humble beginnings, can achieve in America. 

Anyone with self determination, self initiative, persistence and a good solid work ethic can succeed.   

That is not the propaganda the Mighty Wurlitzer puts out. The are pulling out the guns, even dragging Harry Belafonte out to denigrate Cain. Then they brought in a professional race expert, Janeane Garofolo, who is known for, ah, er, eh, em, something or other. What we do know is that she is a rabid, as in foaming at the mouth, liberal and she called Republicans who backed Cain racists.  

Though I am confused by how that can be? Racist against white people? Who are the republicans supporting Cain racist against?  People that have mixed white/black heritage?

The fact is that Cain supporters are not racists, they are Americans.  Americans that understand what Herman Cain represents.

So Herman Cain is scaring the Republicans. Why? Because he is not part of the political establishment.  He is an outsider.  He did not come up through the ranks and pay his dues.  He is not of the party.  And he is getting way too popular and too big for his britches. 

Cain is not smooth, suave, debonair, and glib like Mitt Romney, who is a scion of a political family and a former governor.  He is not handsome, hard charging Texan governor, like Perry or, like Gingrich, an intellectual that has been Speaker of the House, or even Ron Paul, the cranky old guy with wild ideas, who paid his dues in the House.  

Nor is he a pretty congresswoman who paid her dues. And they ask “How dare he run for president?   “

To the Democrats Cain is a real threat.  As a business man who lived with the results, he can show how their policies, since 1965, have destroyed the economy.  He can prove they will continue to destroy the economy.  He knows how the tax structure and regulatory system are doing more harm than good. 

Herman Cain has real life experience that allows him to articulate how the liberal agendas punish growth and the creation of business value. 

Cain is the American Dream and for those that wish to destroy that he is frightening.  Cain came up through the ranks, climbed the corporate ladder, and was a witness to the history of government policy failures along the way.   

Cain is a businessman.  Eek!  He is not a politician.  Eek. Eek.  He is not a professional protester.  He is an apostate when it comes to victimhood.  Eek. Eek. Eek.  He must have cooties or something.  Eek.  Eek.  Eek. Eek.  Run for your lives. 

For the pundits, the liberals and the consultants, Herman Cain must be destroyed before he has a chance to appeal to the hopes and aspirations of the voters.  Before he can allay their fears and anxieties. 

Before he can give them hope and faith.  

Cain must be taken down and out before he turns his popularity into the only things that matter.  The three “Ms”- mass appeal, momentum and money. 

The anti-Cain narrative being promoted by his detractors demonstrates that the modern day promise of America is false.  If you work hard, play by the rules, and achieve something, you are not necessarily allowed to go further. 

You must be part of the government establishment, no matter your ideology or views. Even though our Constitutional framers were not previously governmental ideologues. They were farmers, printers, bankers, silversmiths — the business men that built the original thirteen colonies. 

If the narrative no longer says anyone can rise to be president of the United States; If our popular theory says that only those who are part of the restricted “Inside the Beltway” club are eligible, what does it say about America?  About the American dream?

It would mean something is very wrong in America.
