As many of you know, Herman Cain offered a keynote address last weekend at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, D.C. The live televised broadcast has since become an Internet sensation, with thousands of Americans hearing the inspiring words of one of America's most beloved leaders. Ed Morrissey of "Hot Air" noted that the speech was so touching that it even moved some attendees to tears.
Sadly, Mr. Cain's message regarding the dignity of the individual and the necessity of returning to the glory of the American Dream seemed to be ignored by those on the Left attempting to use racism to spew their hate across the Internet. One particularly offensive response came from AlterNet, a progressive liberal blog funded by liberal special interests, such as the George Soros-linked Tides Foundation, that boasts more than 2.3 million unique visitors each month. The remarks are too deplorable to repeat here, but we urge you to read them for yourself.
Just some of the many slurs used included "monkey," "black Garbage Pail Kid" and "minstrel."
Indeed, their behavior indicates their fear of the growing grassroots movement in support of Mr. Cain while he prayerfully considers a run for the White House. They fear his independence, his resolve and his beliefs. They resent OUR independence, OUR resolve and OUR beliefs.
Won't you join Andrew Breitbart, Niger Innis and other patriots who have demanded that AlterNet condemn these remarks, remove this vitriolic content and issue an apology to those offended by the piece? Won't you stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Mr. Cain, as he has done for all Americans time and time again, against these vile and vicious attacks?
Your generosity of a donation of $10, $25, $50, $100 or any amount you can afford makes all the difference as Mr. Cain continues to measure support for a potential run for President. Your strong showing of support will send a message that these ruthless personal attacks will not be tolerated. We will not be intimidated.
