22 Rant: The Media, the Establishment, and the death of a good man


With Herman Cain suspending his campaign yesterday due to baseless allegations and lies on his character, we had just witnessed the death of America. I say that because it was the media and the establishment, folks like Karl Rove, Charles Krauthammer, Bill O’Reilly, Keith Olbermann, Al Sharpton, and Tavis Smiley among others, who had torn down a decent man by listening to the allegations of “women” (and I use that term loosely) like Sharon Bialek and Ginger White who claimed that Herman Cain either sexually harassed or had an affair with them. IF the media were to have done their research on these “ladies” they would have found their claims to be baseless.

For instance, Ginger White had said that during the “affair” Herman Cain took her to a Mike Tyson fight, which is TOTALLY UNTRUE because Tyson last fought in 1997 against Evander Holyfield (aka “The Bite of the Century” where Tyson bit Holyfield’s ear twice) and was suspended due to his actions. Also, Herman Cain was battling STAGE 4 CANCER. Now I do not know much about Cancer, but from I had heard, Stage 4 means you are right at death’s door. So there is no way that he could have had time to have an affair while he was doing chemotherapy. Also, his wife had health problems and so Herman Cain would not travel 30 miles from his home to the WSB studios in Atlanta when he was doing his radio show so Herman had broadcast the show right from his office close to home. (hat tip to Neal Boortz for that little bit of knowledge about Herman’s radio show)

Another thing that has me upset about this is the fact that the media had focused on these “allegations” because of the time frame in which they had taken place in. It seems odd to me that ALL of these allegations took place during Herman’s three years as head of the National Restaurant Association. Out of 45 PLUS years of business experience that Herman Cain has, working at the Department of the Navy, Godfather’s Pizza, Coca Cola, Pillsbury, the Federal Reserve bank of Kansas City, and Cox Media, the Blamestream Media decided to focus on those 3 years like a laser. If they really did their homework, they would have looked at the ENTIRE body of work and asked people who worked with him there and asked if he was like that. But the media did not because they wanted to choose our candidate for us. Well I hope the media is happy because now we are stuck with 4 more years of Obama and as such America died yesterday.
