“Herman Cain is probably well liked by some of the Republicans because it hides the racist elements of the Republican party. … People like Karl Rove liked to keep the racism very covert. And so Herman Cain provides this great opportunity say you can say ‘Look, this is not a racist, anti-immigrant, anti-female, anti-gay movement. Look we have a black man.'”
It’s all clever subterfuge, like when global warming tries to trick us with snowstorms in October.
I wonder how many blacks like the way liberal elite types condescendingly lump them in with homosexuals.
“One of the things about Herman Cain is, I think that he makes that white Republican base of the party feel okay, feel like they are not racist because they can like this guy. And I think they like him because they think he’s a black man who knows his place.”
The Republican base — denounced by Finney as “white,” which is meant as an insult when coming from white liberals — needs to trick itself into believing it isn’t racist because it is racist, as Herman Cain’s popularity proves.
If even supporting black candidates is evidence of racism, what could conservatives do to prove they aren’t racist? Only one thing: reject their belief in the value of the individual and embrace leftist herd ideology. Racism no longer means anything other than “counter to liberalism.”
