If you have seen the movie 9 to 5, you recognize the stream of adjectives, as they aptly described Franklin Hart. How sad that 31 years later and 20 years after the Anita Hill/Clarence Thomas hearings, we see a black Republican running for President who has said explicitly that he will make sure no Muslim holds a place in American government, that us gays “chose” to be gay, and now we have learned that he sexually harassed several women and paid them not to come out and expose him. To sum up Cain’s response to the allegations of sexual harassment: “But what about all of the women I did not sexually harass? Why don’t we focus on them?” Really? Really? That is your response?
What alarms me is the current state of misogyny and that we have learned nothing from history. Apparently, it is okay to sexually harass a woman and still go on to become an incompetent bigoted Supreme Court Justice with no ethics. Are we to presume that a man guilty of discrimination against Muslims, the LGBT community, and even calling Black people racist if they don’t support him–is this Presidential material? If so, sign me up to move out of the United States.
Our Rachel Maddow does a marvelous job of exposing Herman Cain for the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical, bigot that he is. Click here to see the video of Maddow.
Take Action: In this huge ball of Crazy known as the Republican Presidential candidates, get accurate information–which means turn off Faux News. Read up on the sexual harassment allegations on Herman Cain or his bigoted statements that alienate much of the 99% of Americans, but let’s face it–the current crap, I mean crop of Republican Presidential candidates are all working exclusively for the 1% of Americans.
