Power Line has the details on this bizarre and obviously racial attack on Herman Cain. The AlterNet blogger, “Chauncey DeVega,” calls Cain a “minstrel” and a “garbage pail kid” in addition to calling him a “monkey,” and just to make sure to hit all the bases, adds that during his CPAC speech, Cain was performing for his “masters.”
Cain, former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza and former chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank in Kansas City, responds on his facebook page.
The Revs. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton remain silent so far. As does the NAACP. And AlterNet hasn’t seen fit to send the post down the memory hole. Yet.
Not that that would do them any good, what with it being so easy to capture screen shots and all. While the post remains up, take a good look. It’s a racist attack on a good man, pure and simple.
