Herman Cain’s pastor is a supporter of Malcolm X…That can’t be Wright
This should be interesting.
Uncle Tom Conservative Herman Cain has positioned himself to the top of the polls as a Republican presidential candidate. The same Herman Cain that said African Americans were “brainwashed” into voting Democratic. Someone should ask Mr. Cain if he believes his church has been brainwashed as well.
Cain is an associate minister at the Antioch Baptist Church North, which is a liberal megachurch that is led by Rev. C.M. Alexander – who cites Malcolm X as one of his influences. Interesting indeed.
Remember when the right wing were up in arms about Barack Obama’s former pastor Jeremiah Wright? When people who mastered the art of common sense tried to explain to the neoconservatives that they should pay attention to the candidate and not what his pastor says, they ignored the simple logic.
Chances are the neo-cons will ignore this as long as nobody calls Cain out on it. They will do their best Sgt. Schultz impersonation. Which is actually the right thing to do, but they will do it for all the wrong reasons. They’re lucky the left typically overlooks ridiculous stuff like this. If it is brought up, it will be because another Republican presidential candidate becomes desperate.
U.S. Marine Sergeant defends Occupy Wall Street protestors
When someone sticks their neck out on the line for innocent people, they instantly gain my respect. During an Occupy Wall Street protest in New York, one person did just that.
Last night at Occupy Wall Street in Times Square, Marine Sergeant Shamar Thomas boldly defended the occupiers. Sergeant Thomas calmly asked the NYPD why they aren’t protecting the peaceful protestors. The NYPD ignored his questions and continued telling protesters to leave the sidewalk otherwise “they’d get hurt.”
Then, in an epic scene, Thomas approached the line of NYPD officers who held their batons.
While many Occupy Wall Street demonstrators had been arrested for merely crossing the street, he exclaimed, “These are U.S. citizens peacefully protesting! These are the people you are supposed to protect!” The 10-15 NYPD officers he addressed dared not to touch him.
Sergeant Thomas continued denouncing the NYPD’s actions shouting, “This isn’t a war zone! I’ve served overseas, that’s a war zone! Get rid of your batons and helmets!”
After five minutes of severely and loudly criticizing the NYPD, the Sergeant walked away leaving the scorned officers behind. The few people who were there applauded and cheered.
I love the fact that the NYPD were scared shitless. The Occupy Wall Street protesters are fed up. They are what the Tea Party should be. Fighting against corporate greed and it’s evil influence, instead of raising a stink because a Black man is in the White House. I’d be surprised if most Teabaggers even knew the importance of these Occupy Wall Street protests.
God bless Marine Sergeant Shamar Thomas and the Occupy Wall Street movement.
