Dem strategist: Can conservatives handle the fact that Cain’s accuser is white?

posted at 8:30 pm on November 7, 2011 by Allahpundit

Via Mediaite, here’s Karen Finney adding whipped cream to what’s already been an ice-cream-sundae of a day for the left. As delicious as watching the GOP frontrunner squirm must be for them, it can always be a little more delicious by ladling on some rich, creamy racial politics. Finney’s a skilled chef too: Remember, she was the one who accused the right last week of gravitating to Cain because he’s a black man who “knows his place” (his place being, I guess, the Oval Office). Kudos to her for managing to throw an even bigger rhetorical grenade here than co-panelist Toure, who was recently given a platform by Time magazine to accuse Cain of borderline minstrelsy.

Maybe they’ve got a point, though. Clarence Thomas’s wife is white and you all know how much conservatives hate Clarence Thomas. Exit question: Before you hit play, any guesses as to whose show this exchange occurred on? You get three, and the first two don’t count.

Update: Whoops — didn’t see Bashir’s name there in the chyron. Ah well. You guessed before you even looked at the video player, didn’t you?

Actually, the question should be whether conservatives can handle a filthy-minded Dem operative with a fetish for voyeuristic fantasies.

This female is several shades of nasty, and media with morals would never put her face in front of a camera.

What a disgusting women. Conservatives aren’t going to freeze up in shock if the accusers are white! First of all they don’t assume the accusers are even telling the truth and seriously doubt it. I expect Cains poll numbers to climb white or black or blue women and I hope she goes into shock when they do.

Drives her angry because no one is pushing her head towads his cotch. Black men want the white women and white guys walk right by her like she’s invisible.

Question: Why did Cain settle? (Everyone admits he has been awful at handling this crisis)

Larry Craig settled on toe tapping in the men’s restroom which meant he was GUILTY according to the jury of public opinion.

I think Cain lost his chance at the presidency 15 years ago the moment he allowed several settlements.

I think this woman has a tingle up her leg./
Nah. Just kidding. She is a pure Democratic racist who knows what everyone else is thinking. Thinking racist thought like her own.

Cain was not in a position to decide one way or another on the settlements. As I understand the timeline, and please correct me if I’m wrong, the charges and settlements came AFTER he left the NRA and the NRA was the party that settled.

This conservative is thrilledthat the accuser is a white. Now play the race card by raising: Was this white woman feeling harassed because she was being propositioned by the boss, or because she was being propositioned by a black man? Are Democrats are trying to lynch Cain for messin’ with a white woman?

what an idiot…

cmsinaz on November 8, 2011 at 6:09 AM

She is from Chicago and represented by Allred. That about sums it up!

I wish somebody would setup President Downgrade for some embarrasment, just like this! With some nice he said she said sexual inuendo with zero witnesses.

The racial issue is only an issue to them. Can you have a bigger example of bigotry? Even their black liberals think this. Bigots.

shick on November 8, 2011 at 6:18 AM

Like I’ve said, liberals believe their own endless game of telephone as they leverage one straw man to construct another.

SERIOUSLY?! For the past 4 years we have had to endure moronic claims by Democrats that any disagreement with Obama actions or policy equates to being a ‘racist’. Obama promised that when he was elected that racism would finally left behind. The complete opposite has been true! Obama and his fellow Democrats are the biggest perpetrators and perpetuators of ‘racism’ this country has ever seen. And NOW we have to endure even MORE racist idiocy from the Left! What does the fact that one of the women who is supposed to have been sexually harrassed is white? Does the color of one’s skin make the act of sexual harrassment any more or less illegal, hurtful, and intolerable? Why bring color into the mix? Didn’t Obama say we were going to move beyond ‘color’? Does the Left REALLY believe that emphasizing the woman’s color will make a difference? It would….to a racist! Imagine if a ‘white woman’ came forward about Obama. We all KNOW the Left would immediately scream ‘racism’ / ‘racist attack’ rather than focus on the act that supposedly occurred! Once again the Left confirms what party is still REALLY hung up on ‘race’.

Uptwinkles!

Has she seen Clarence Thomas’ wife?

Hopeless Future on November 8, 2011 at 8:45 AM

At some point this race-baiting idiocy on the left is going to bite them so hard it’s going to draw blood.
Before this woman, I wsa more on the fence not sure of anything, but this chick is a plant. She was NOT AN EMPLOYEE and so no matter how she tried to paint this, it was something off hours, someting in the realm of the personal world.
Her story rings completely false to me. This is not someone that is having to face quid pro quo at work, or even the lunatic that was upset because he asked her to take care of his Tea- She in this case, had her choice to be where ever she was at, which is exactly why, even if something might have happened, there is not going to be a law suit because the judge would laugh it right out of court.

Damn, I did not even notice that.

Now I am outraged!

Seriously, I did not even notice that. Who would notice that? What kind of human being would notice that?

astonerii on November 7, 2011 at 9:34 PM

I can understand why liberals are outraged. They go to all this trouble to add a racial context to sexual harassment accusations so conservatives will recoil in disgust, and the conservatives don’t even notice the racial context.

Why, it’s almost like the conservatives aren’t racist.

Seriously, I’m very much enjoying the fact that the liberals are having to point out that the accuser is white, for fear of that point getting lost completely.

Is she saying Cain is a racist ?

borntoraisehogs on November 8, 2011 at 1:05 PM

I predicted they would do just that. Imagine if ANYONE who was EVER associated with right-of-center thought had said anything like this about a black democrat.

They know perfectly well they control this double standard. They know they will never be questioned about their blatant racism. They know they can make up whatever they want, point fingers at whomever they want, and never ever pay any price for their constant lies.

And we are letting them get away with it.

If they can make a point by highlighting race in a story they do so… even to the point, as is the case here, of projecting that the conservatives/right will have a racially motivated GTFO moment over… race.
-
Well, now that they said it… it must be true… even if it doesn’t happen.
