Editor: William Dwight McKissic, Sr is a voice of conscience for the SBC on race related matters. This post is one of the more political posts you will see on SBC Voices, but I think that more than politics is at stake here. I appreciate our brother’s contribution.
The liberal media, conservative Republicans who support rival candidates and African American civil rights leaders who strongly support the Democratic Party and liberal causes, have unwittingly formed an unholy trinity to defeat and destroy the presidential aspirations of Herman Cain. The purpose of this article is not intended to endorse Herman Cain for president; but rather to defend Mr. Cain against the scurrilous, scandalous and shameful attacks on his character.
An allegation and formal complaint is not a conviction. A settlement is not an admission of guilt, but an acknowledgement that the parties involved have brought the “disputed” matter to an agreed upon closure without any admission of guilt or liability. There has not been one shred of evidence made available to the public with regard to the sexual harassment allegations leveled against Mr. Cain that suggest he’s guilty. The National Restaurant Association has granted the anonymous accuser(s) and her lawyer the right to tell her story, but they declined.
WHERE IS THE BEEF?
Why are these charges being brought to the public’s attention at this point? The answer is obvious. Mr. Cain has thus far done the impossible. Who would have ever thought that an American Black conservative would be leading the pack for the Republican nomination for president of the United States within a year of the election? No one. That, my friends, is why these charges are being leveled against Mr. Cain. Who has the most to lose if Mr. Cain succeeds? The liberal media, rival candidates, and the Black liberal democratic civil rights community.
The election of Herman Cain as president of the United States of America would change the political, social and economic landscape in America like nothing we’ve seen before. Therefore, he’s a threat like none other to the established order. In Herman Cain, we find the reincarnation and fusion of three great men. His candidacy is causing such a stir and a buzz because he could be the second coming of John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Ronald Wilson Reagan all wrapped into one. In my lifetime, these three men impacted the political, social, racial and economic landscape like none other. Cain has the populist appeal and tax cutting philosophy of Kennedy. He has the rock-solid conservative values and principles of Reagan. And, he has the racial sensitivity and inclusion/empowerment agenda for minorities and the poor as Martin Luther King, Jr. America has never seen a presidential candidate with all these qualities in one package. Cain has the potential to bring America together like none other. Therefore, this unholy trinity is unleashing everything within their power to stop him.
I’ve never seen the media report as many as three anonymous allegations of sexual harassment, and not only fail to give us names, pictures, interviews, etc., of these accusers. They even fail to provide any specifics or details related to these charges. No other presidential candidate has been treated like this in my lifetime. Why Herman Cain? Names, pictures, and specifics, have been given with every other politician that I can recall who faced a sex scandal. I repeat: Herman Cain is the only one that I know who has to endure a mirage of news reports about sexual harassment without any supporting evidence.
Where is the NAACP in defense of Herman Cain? Where are Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton in defense of Herman Cain? Where are the liberals who love to support oppressed minorities in defense of Herman Cain? These entities and individuals are losing credibility, because they are proving to be only interested in defending and advancing Black liberals, not Blacks who are independent thinkers. Is the NAACP the National Association for the Advancement of Liberal Colored People or the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People–period?
I never thought I’d live to see the day when Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter and other conservative commentators would defend a Black man who is being falsely accused, while the NAACP, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton remain silent or partner in the unholy trinity.
My voice is minor and marginal, compared to the voices that capture the media’s attention with regard to these matters. Nevertheless, I can’t sit idly by and watch this decent, honorable Baptist minister and businessman under attack, and I say nothing. Therefore, in the spirit of John the Baptist, I’ve decided to be a voice crying in the wilderness appealing to this unholy trinity as it relates to the sexual harassment charges—LEAVE HERMAN CAIN ALONE! STOP THE MADNESS! CEASE AND DESIST THE PRACTICE OF A DOUBLE STANDARD! Cease this media lynching. And the only Uncle Tom’s and sellouts that I’ve seen in this campaign are those who are African American that are aiding and abetting this lynching. The one candidate that the liberal media, Black liberal Democratic leaders, and even other Republican candidates fear the most at this point is Herman Cain. And that, my friends, is the basis for this attack.
Make no mistake about it; the liberal media quoting the anonymous sources is racist and wrong on this matter—specifically, Politico. If credible evidence comes forth that suggests Mr. Cain is guilty, I will immediately post an apology; and I will repent; Mr. Cain would need to do the same as well.
With regard to Sharon Bialek, the fourth accuser, I find her story less than credible for the following reasons: (1) She waited 12 years to tell her story; (2) The story she described if accurate would constitute a crime. Why didn’t she report it to the law when it occurred? She appears to be a pawn of the unholy trinity, seeking to deny this American Black Conservative from winning the nomination for president. Since the anonymous charges did not stick to Mr. Cain, she offers herself as a “sacrificial lamb” that stands to gain fame and fortune from her alleged dalliance with Mr. Cain. What we’re seeing is truly a high-tech lynching, akin to the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and for the exact same reason. (3) Where is the “blue dress”? She provided no evidence to her claim to truth.
If Mr. Cain wins, the liberal Democratic stronghold on the Black vote will be broken for a long-long time. This is the reason the liberals are trying to defeat Mr. Cain.
