Herman Cain Embraces His Inner Lawn Jockey

Used to think Hermain Cain was a serious politician. Here, he sucks up to Hannity, and embraces his inner Lawn Jockey. This one gets the first Black Jockey of the Week Award for 2011. By accepting an interview on Hannity, he lowers himself to the level of Hannity’s favorite Uncle Tom – Jesse Lee Peterson. Admittedly, the choices for publicity on Faux go from the bad to the worse – but if Cain were really serious, why wouldn’t he try to get a booking on O’Reilly or one of the other Faux shows which don’t have as a central fixture a Minstrel Show?

Come on down and get your award Herman!

  1. Sean Hannity is a piece of garbage whose political beliefs I personally find abhorrent, but I have never heard him call an African American an “Uncle Tom”, or “lawn jockey” because he disagreed with his politics.

    You on the other hand feel that it is appropriate to speak of a man as a tobacky spittin’ klansman would because he happens to be on the other political “team”.

    Why not show some tesitcular fortitude and just refer to any black man that you happen disagree with a n***er.

    It is not enough for an African American to get ahead, he or she must do it your way with your beliefs otherwise they are a “lawn jockey” or “uncle tom.”

    Your award is cute as well, maybe you could share it with Stormfront. Switch off every week, they could award it to a successful black liberal and the next week you could award it to successful black conservative. And you all will feel so superior and smug.

    Trash.

    • Bit more than politics I’m disagreeing with Mer Cain with on this one, Cap.

      You tobaky spittin new age Klansmen wouldn’t understand that.

      • “You tobaky spittin new age Klansmen wouldn’t understand that.”
        My goodness, how………….
        imbecilic

      • What? You Custer’s cavalry, sevo?

        Trying to make up in volume what you don’t have in intelligence…

  2. BTX3, I was sent here from a link. After reading your drivel I will not be back.

  3. BT, you’ve done it again.

    • BB – You will enjoy my reply to this trash over at the site they linked in from, “Reason Magazine

      Noticed your tirade on my link list.

      Yes, I post most everything that meets my basic posting rules (no profanity, etc) – even by conservatives and bigots – because I like my readers to see just how deeply twisted the new generation of white wine sippin’ arugula chewing Kluxxers like yourself are.

      So let’s clear up two things quickly. My disagreement with Mr. Cain in this case has nothing to do with “political beliefs” – it has to do with his self-association with folks like yourself.

      Of the two black Republicans elected to Congress, you will find several articles on my blog giving the same award to Alan West – but not Tim Scott. Why? Because Scott is all about business, the business of serving his community. West is about being a Lawn Jockey, attacking perceived conservative enemies such as in his ad hominum attack recently on Keith Ellison.Ergo, fronting for the white wine sipping, arugula chewing bigots like you.

      You ever want your party to get some appeal beyond the Klavern – you need to find some more Tim Scotts, and stop pretending that the Uncle Wallies with his fake numbers, Uncle Tommies (Sowell et al) – and associated lawn ornament types like Hermain Cain and Alan West represent anything except your inbred bigotry.

      • “white wine sippin’ arugula chewing Kluxxers like yourself are.”

        First of all, you must be confusing me with your intended audience who get the vicarious thrill of reading an author refer to a black man as a “lawn jockey.” All the while being safely ensconced in their own inclusive belief system.

        Or perhaps you thought that you had a witty riposte to my tobakky spittn’ comment, well you don’t sir. Your response so far is off base, and your attempt at an inflammatory insult falls flat exactly because you are so wrong.

        Sorry.

        “My disagreement with Mr. Cain in this case has nothing to do with “political beliefs” – it has to do with his self-association with folks like yourself.”

        I wasn’t aware of my having any association with Mr. Cain, or even that we had similar political thoughts. I also wasn’t aware that calling someone out who called a black guy a “lawn jockey” made one a bigot; that is news to me.

        Your poor excuse for a response shows that beyond race baiting you have no justification for your posts.

        Your third and fourth paragraphs would be funny if you weren’t so serious. Again, I am sure calling someone an “arugula chewing bigot” or saying they possessed “inbred bigotry” seemed like appropriate bon mots that strengthened your supposed argument; they didn’t.

        Actually it seems as though you are feeling defensive because someone pointed out the poor taste of your “award.” You probably thought that your award was biting commentary, gritty perhaps. In fact, it merely seems that you are seeking validation from your whooping white audience who also probably think that it is okay to call a black guy a “lawn jockey.” And really you have not given any persuasive argument or justification for your name calling other than you dislike these men’s politics.

        Take these two sentences that you wrote:

        “West is about being a Lawn Jockey, attacking perceived conservative enemies such as in his ad hominum attack recently on Keith Ellison.Ergo, fronting for the white wine sipping, arugula chewing bigots like you.”

        Res ipsa loquitur.

        Also, after ergo usually follows a evidence backed conclusion, not a childish “ad hominum(sic)” like you have provided, and previously decried.

      • First of all, you must be confusing me with your intended audience who get the vicarious thrill of reading an author refer to a black man as a “lawn jockey.”

        Since the majority of my audience is well educated , professional and business owning black folks – I find your assumption about the “vicarious nature” of the award atypical of the sort of stupid assumptions made by your ilk.

        The critique comes from a group who should be from any political movement’s standpoint – exactly the sort of people you would want to attract. Yet statistically, as education level rises the percentage of black folks who vote for, or can tolerate any association with bigots like yourself drops from 8%… to under 2% at the graduate level.

        Yet you continue to pimp lawn jockeys like the aforementioned Mr Cain, and Alan West – as well as Uncle Wallie, and the Thomas’, instead of folks who share any commonality with the vast majority of black professional or business owners.

        When a product turns off 98% of the market, moron – you don’t make it up in volume. Ergo, the role of the aforementioned Jockey suited set isn’t to attract new adherents…

        It’s to provide cover for white wine sippin’, arugula chewing bigots like yourself.

  4. Dig the irony of a bigot slinging the “Klan” paint out of the bucket without even the benefit of using a brush.

    • Quite honestly – the only difference I can see between a Klansman and a libertarian, is the libertarian wears a tie under his white robes.

      • Wow, that made no sense at all. Wouldn’t it be “wears a tie over his white robes”, because there were plenty of professional KKKers in the South — plus, you wouldn’t be able to tell if a Klansmen were wearing a tie or not under the white robes, anyways. Insult fail.

      • It was a metaphorical reference Eric.

        He got the point.

        And as to the tie UNDER the white robes – the fact you can’t see it IS the point.

      • And since we are on the subject – here is a little historical background of the KKK and folks like Mr Cain – During the 20′s -

        Headline: “Dixon Klan gives to Negro Baptist Church”. At the Sunday service, Oct. 14, at the Colored Baptist Church here, the local organization of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan presented the congregation with an envelope containing four ten dollar bills. About three weeks ago the minister of this congregation received a letter ordering him to leave the city within twelve hours and letter was signed K.K.K., which is merely another example of the false propaganda being sent out by those who oppose this American organization. … The minister responded with his thanks and assured us that it was received in the proper spirit, and would be used in the proper way. He also said if the Klan is composed of such men and holds such high principles his prayer to God is for more Klansmen.”

        Headline: “Klan visits Negro Preacher.” Sour Lake, Tx. – The Negro Methodist church was the scene of an extraordinary sensation last Sunday afternoon when several white robed Klansmen entered the building and presented the pastor with a donation of $40.00 and a message of encouragement. The visit followed the request of the pastor to Rev. Charles W. Hughes, pastor of the First Methodist church, to assist him in raising funds for religious work in the Colored community. Rev. Hughes delivered a sermon on “Money” before the dusky congregation and assisted in taking up the collection.”

        Headline: “Negro leader learns Klan is friend.” Madison, Wis. – The Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and the Negroes of Madison have buried the hatchet. This was indicated the other day by statements of Klan leaders and Rev. F.J. Peterson, pastor of the African Bethel church, who is regarded as a local leader of his race. The pastor acknowledged receipt of a donation of $25.00 made by the Klansmen. “The board of trustees of our church regards the donation as being made in good faith and has accepted it as such,” Rev. Peterson said. “It has helped to dispel natural prejudices and to encourage better feeling. …In a letter which accompanied the gift, it is declared that reports that the Ku Klux Klan is an anti-Negro organization are untrue.”

        Your limited ability to see is quite amazing. You should have it checked by a professional

  5. It’s as if you copy and pasted your last response, and then added some made up statistics to strengthen your (nonexistent)point.

    You don’t even deny that it is in poor taste to call people “lawn jockeys”, but that it is justified because you happen to think that they are “lawn jockeys.”

    Also, invoking the word “ergo” does not substantiate your premises, nor strengthen your conclusion. If you could please provide any evidence(outside of your own pre-drawn conclusions)that I am a bigot then that would be a solid first step in solidifying your argument. Of course, you would also need to verify that your “lawn jockeys” knowingly provide cover for bigots, and those you call bigots are in fact bigots.

    A tall order indeed. Especially if you have to abandon your rhetorical crutch i.e. your inane arugula comments.

    If you have something substantial to say other than your tired insults, then I would be happy to hear it.

  6. In a letter which accompanied the gift, it is declared that reports that the Ku Klux Klan is an anti-Negro organization are untrue.”

    priceless

    • The methodology of recruiting Uncle Tom’s as frontmen hasn’t changed in over 100 years, Nana.

      I believe the Tea Party bears a lot of semblance to the Second Klan.

  7. Oh I agree, the only problem baby brother imho that nothing repeats the same, racist are but a small but influential group in power. Yet the game as they say in Egypt has changed and the Tea Party is like those who say after changes, what the hell happen. The Empire is folding what comes after this is up to conscious folks and it wouldn’t be pretty in many quarters. Look at those bastards in San Domingo who are attacking Haitians for migration into their side of the island. We are animals first and human nature will never change, yet empathy raises consciousness and prosperity in the long run.
