Not that it matters–because he has no chance in hell–but Herman Cain recently did a whole contrition to Islam session to usher in Ramadan. When I first pointed out the highly ignorant Cain’s 180 flip-flop on Islam and appointing Muslim cabinet members, I got excoriated and attacked by mindless, blind Cain bots, claiming that no, he didn’t really flip-flop in favor of Muslims, that he didn’t say that. Maybe they’ll come up with some other moronic excuse for his latest BS at a mosque. But it’s clear this guy is clueless, has no principles, and is just a fame-seeker, who knew he’d be another also-ran as a liberal, so he chose the other side. If this is your Tea Party “hero,” you know where you can shove him.
Praise allah: Two Out of Three Herman Cains Agree Islam is Good
Note that the ADAMS Center mosque is noted for its extremism beyond the extremism of other mosques. It, like almost all mosques, openly supports HAMAS and Hezbollah, but is known for the fact that its imam refused to condemn the 9/11 attacks when asked by the press to do so. And it’s known for its direct ties to Al-Qaeda. A major financier and past chairman of the mosque, Ahmed Totonji, is a defendant in the lawsuit by 9/11 victims’ relatives and was a founder and officer of several Virginia Muslim organizations raided by U.S. Customs for financing and money-laundering over $1.2 billion to Al-Qaeda.
Yup, Herman Cain . . . a real national security conservative! You just can’t trust this fraud.
Herman Cain hosted a quiet meeting with a small group of Muslim leaders on Wednesday in an effort to rebuild relations frayed by his comments about not wanting to appoint Muslims to government posts and blocking the construction of mosques.
Cain’s campaign announced plans to convene the outreach meeting this week, but refused to provide details even after the meeting, which was held at the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS) Center in Sterling, Va.
ADAMS Center board member Robert Marro told POLITICO that the presidential hopeful met with a handful of Muslim leaders then toured the facility, which serves 6,000 families at eight branches in Northern Virginia and Washington. . . .
In a statement sent to reporters following the meeting, Cain apologized for causing offense to Muslims, but didn’t renounce his earlier comments.
“While I stand by my opposition to the interference of shariah law into the American legal system, I remain humble and contrite for any statements I have made that might have caused offense to Muslim Americans and their friends,” Cain said. “I am truly sorry for any comments that may have betrayed my commitment to the U.S. Constitution and the freedom of religion guaranteed by it. Muslims, like all Americans, have the right to practice their faith freely and peacefully.”
Marro said Cain’s statement was “as close to a heartfelt and sincere apology that I’ve seen from any politician anywhere.” . . .
Imam Mohamed Magid, the executive director, invited Cain to attend a Friday prayer service and be introduced to the congregation.
If Islamo-pandering Cain were liberal, he’d be just another Black liberal who loves Islam, and no one would pay him any attention. If he were a White conservative, it would be the same thing. (And if you think a White pizza chain founder would have the chances–including affirmative action minority set-asides, loans, and preferences–that Cain got to make Godfather Pizza a success, you are an ignoramus.) The main problem here is that Cain is embraced by far too many conservatives and was given a talk show on the sole basis of his skin color and politics. That’s why he’s running. He knows he has no chance of ever reaching the White House. He wants more speaking engagements and TV and radio gigs.
I used to think Cain was just a harmless dummy and a fraud who got where he is on the basis of complexion. Now, I know he’s a dummy and a fraud who got where he is on the basis of complexion.
But he’s a little more harmful than I originally imagined. And a lot dumber.
