Bigot of the Week Award: October 7, Herman Cain

7 Oct

Herman Cain Number 1 Bigot of the Week

Those of you who follow TSM will remember that we called out Herman Cain’s bigoted behavior before, when he expressed his blatantly Islamophobic comments. I’m sure it comes as no big surprise that Cain’s bigotry proves pervasively pernicious.  Cain appeared on The View to deride the LGBT community and stated he wants to reinstate DADT and that being gay is a choice:

Well, you show me the science that says that it’s not and I could be persuaded…Right now It’s my opinion against the opinions of others who feel differently. That’s just a difference of opinion.

I wonder when our Cain decided to be heterosexual?  What made him chose heterosexuality? Perhaps he just has not met the right man yet?  His homophobic comments certainly earn him this week’s BWA. How sad that as a black man, he is unable to see the intersections of oppression.  Click here if you wish to see the video of him.

    He has definitely earned the title this week! I have chosen him as my next Sunday Slam. He has said a few things this week to do with gay people and poor people that I need to address.
