Stop The Lynching

By L. Brent Bozell III | October 31, 2011 | 12:35pm EDT

The media’s personal attacks on Herman Cain are the next round of animosity toward black conservatives.

Sadly, Herman Cain’s predictions have come true. In May, he stated that he was "ready for the same high-tech lynching that [Clarence Thomas] went through -- for the good of this country."

That's what Politico is doing with its unsubstantiated and thoroughly hypocritical hit piece against him. Anyone in the press that gives this story oxygen is equally hypocritical.

In the eyes of the liberal media, Herman Cain is just another uppity black American who has had the audacity to leave the liberal plantation. So they must destroy him, just as they tried destroying Clarence Thomas.

The richest irony here is that the same media that refused to cover evidence of an alleged rape by a state attorney general who became president now are running stories based on unnamed sources, about offenses that aren’t a fraction as grave.

But, one was a liberal Democrat, the other a conservative Republican -- hence the double standard.

Consider the source: Ken Vogel of Politico used to work for the George Soros-funded Center for Public Integrity in Washington and has been involved in numerous attacks on conservatives. There is no hiding a liberal agenda when considering Ken Vogel’s work, and this latest smear attempt on Cain is further proof.

The liberal media need to wake up and deal with the fact that successful, black Americans can be conservative. They are going insane realizing he might one day be President, too."

Editor's Note: Herman Cain is both the former National Chairman for the MRC's Business & Media Institute, and a personal friend of the president of the MRC.
