Told Ya: Dhimmi Herman Cain Does Ramadan Contrition @Al-Qaeda Mosque

By Debbie Schlussel

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.

It is clear now, if there was any real question before, that Herman Cain is a fake. As for contrition over offending Muslims, it is more than grotesque. They are offended if you do not grovel in front of them and endure their atrocious acts without complaint. Mr. Cain is rather like a prisoner or slave apologizing to his guard/overseer for not accepting his whipping cheerfully. In the case of a prisoner or slave, this obsequiousness is understandable. But, in Mr. Cain’s case it is entirely voluntary and unnecessary, and thus renders him contemptible and vile.

    I am really disappointed in Herman Cain.

    Mallory on August 7, 2011 at 3:23 am

First of all, Debbie, I’m glad you didn’t write a column on this blog about the “debt-ceiling”, to be honest with you and everybody who comments here, I happen to be very bad at mathematics. When I was in school I always hated doing math, because I sucked at it (even though I pass all of my math courses when I was in school many years ago), and if someone is talking about numbers and money way too much, I get very bored and fall asleep. So thank goodness Debbie that you didn’t write a article about the debt-ceiling (even though its important).

Now to Mr. Cain, I remember you wrote an article about Herman Cain three months ago on his “180” about islam. At first I agreed with Cain on taking islam to the task and calling them out, have you notice ever since he got more and more national attention, he hasn’t mentioned one word about the rist of “islamofascism”. And I would assume you would get some pro-Cain emails in your inbox from his supporters, and I hope his supporters would comeback here and read the whole page from start to finish and wake up see who exactly this dude is.

Also Debbie, I also think his PR-men advised him to hold that small meeting with muslims at the ADAMS Center yesterday? And I also think his PR-men whispered into his ear(s) and told Mr. Cain to “tone down the rhetoric about islam and muslims, you don’t want to alienate muslims in this country and lose their vote in the primaries next year”? That could’ve been a possiblity from his PR-men to tell him to not be too tough on muslims?

“A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

    With regard to the debt ceiling, we’ve just taken on $2 trillion dollars of additional debt. Any one who thinks spending will go down significantly in an election year is dreaming. No politician is going to go on the record to cut any one’s benefits. I’m expecting a silent tax increase – they just won’t call it one. It was all theatrics in Washington and people have heard it all before.

    NormanF on August 4, 2011 at 2:57 pm

    Actually, the Muslim electorate is still quite miniscule in the country as a whole. Also, the people who would be offended by anti-Islamic remarks would be infinitesimal in a Republican Primary, and also quite small in the general electorate. In addition, Islamists are not all that interested in Republicans in any event. If Mr. Cain thinks this repositioning is critical for his campaign, he is indeed a fool.

    Worry01 on August 4, 2011 at 3:54 pm

Cain should by now be taken as seriously as NY gubernatorial candidate Jimmy McMillan of the “Rent is Too Damn High” party. He should stick to the pizza business.

Raymond in DC on August 4, 2011 at 2:21 pm

Sound like Cain got some islamic contributions he couldn’t resist. ( godfather pun intended).
Conservatives are supposed to be rooted in their beliefs, unlike liberals who swing like a leaf in the wind. It goes to show that he wasn’t one after all.
Not that there’s nothing wrong with that…..

Gino on August 4, 2011 at 2:36 pm

He’s never going to get the nomination. The anti-Obama he ain’t. And he’s too pretentious a guy to be President. Obama should have taught the country a lesson in electing someone President who has zero skills and qualifications to lead the country. Conservatives don’t need a clone of Obama to win the White House in 2012.

NormanF on August 4, 2011 at 2:52 pm

I have a hunch Cain is out of his league when it comes to dealing with a fifth column, national security, and offers too good to refuse. He may be a success in his own world, but in the leader-of-your-country domain he indicates he’ll bend with the wind when he shouldn’t. There ARE occasions to bend (some other issues)…..but dealing with National Security, treason, and aggressive political ideology masquerading as religion are not on that list.

Not Ovenready on August 4, 2011 at 2:53 pm

I’m a little confused, did this guy start Godfathers Pizza, or was he it’s one time CEO?

sgtvinnie16 on August 4, 2011 at 3:02 pm

This is the kind of thing that causes the uninformed to write off politics altogether. Sooo much b.s.

samurai on August 4, 2011 at 3:30 pm

I will be the first to admit that I was wrong about Herman Cain, and that his major flip-flop on one of the most important issues of our time means that he should be relegated to the political dust-bin. Although I think that Debbie’s analysis of Cain’s business skills are skewed based on this issue, and that Cain is, in fact, light-years more experienced than nearly all candidates in the presidential field, the flip-flop on the Islam issue is too egregious and revealing of Cain’s unreliable politics.

Unfortunately, there are NO candidates running out there now that have the experience, principles, convictions, and leadership necessary to turn America around. My first choice for a presidential candidate would have been Mike Pence, as he has a proven record demonstrating the requisite experience, principles, convictions, and leadership. But, alas, he has said that he doesn’t want to pursue the presidency at this time.

Ralph Adamo on August 4, 2011 at 3:42 pm

Will he channel Obama in saying that the Muslim call to prayer is “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.” source: February 27th, Barack Hussein Obama speaking to Kristof of The New York Times). We shall soon find out…

pats on August 4, 2011 at 4:18 pm

Ugh. This sucks and is painful, but the truth often is.

I know enough to know that he needs to be scrutinized as DS has done and since her first post on his back-swing, I have NOT given any more $$ to his campaign and I have not opened the e-mails I get from the campaign.

Very sad. We need someone strong and knowledgeable.

Cain is NOT it.

Skunky on August 4, 2011 at 7:45 pm

Well he shot my hopes down. Now I have no one to support in running against Obama.

But I’m not suprised by this, because the republican party is rigging this entire election to mke sure Obama wins.

Squirrel3D on August 4, 2011 at 9:44 pm

When he had his own show on WSB radio, he would time and again strike me as a voice that keeps repeating the same primitive obvious points over and over, while avoiding any confrontation with multiple lefty callers to the show. Invariably they would find “common ground” and Cain would stress (to their mutual delight and my dismay) that they are on the same side. Could not listen to this boredom and intellectual torture any longer.

Yanik on August 5, 2011 at 12:04 am

I had considered supporting Herman Cain at one point but decided to wait (I still am waiting as to who I will support) until the field was set. Am I GLAD I did! Cain’s flip-flop on Muslims is just too egregious for me to support him. It goes to show that he is easily malleable, something we DON’T need in a President. We need a President that WILL NOT KISS MUSLIM @$$ and bow down to them when they get offended. ANY decision a rational person, much less a president, makes WILL offend SOMEONE. I hope and pray that we elect someone that is a stout conservative and that their words and deeds are CONSISTENT.

Jon on August 5, 2011 at 1:38 am

Gosh he’s both humble AND contrite. My dictionary defines CONTRITE as: broken in spirit by a sense of guilt; HUMBLE as low in position or condition. Gee maybe Herm should consider converting to Islam so that he can maybe rise a bit in esteem in the eyes of the rather miniscule number of Muslim voters in the country. If he is so willing to neuter himself before some unknown bunch of “Muslim Leaders” (huh?) I don’t think he belongs in the White House.

kenny komodo on August 5, 2011 at 5:38 am

I’m beginning to think Palin is going to be good Presidential candidate. As someone said recently…if Palin were dropped off in the Alaska wilderness she’d find her way home wearing a new Bear fur coat. If Obama were dropped there, we’d find him in a fetal position, sucking a thumb and crying for his mommy!
She’s one tough cookie!

Ladysmith008 on August 5, 2011 at 3:06 pm

What is with these sheeps in wolves clothing?

Everyone is such a liar. Its demoralizing

Haley on August 5, 2011 at 3:55 pm

I think when Debbie did an earlier post on Cain was after a debate in which he confessed total ignorance on the “right of return” issue. I guess when you’re totally ignorant of something, then don’t bother getting educated about it, you just go right on stepping in the same pile of $hit over and over again.

CornCoLeo on August 5, 2011 at 4:02 pm

Hopefully Perry gets in (I know that every one has baggage) however with such a thing that Cain has done is unforgiveable in the political arena what will he change next??? I actually liked the guy because at least in the beginning he sounded good I just hope Perry does not make the same mistake (oh I hear that obama bin binden does not eat lunch right now medical condition or some such)

Jonathan Gartner on August 5, 2011 at 4:46 pm

Well.. I, for one, was fooled. I liked HC until I read DS’s first article on him. And I hadn’t heard anything about this “Muslim apology” until just now.. Thanks DS..

PDMac60 on August 5, 2011 at 6:14 pm

well, let me get out my mental list of potential candidates to draw a line through… let’s seeeeeee… scrolling down… there it is… cain, herman… drawing line through it now… annnnnnnd. done.

thanks debbie.

howardroark on August 5, 2011 at 7:08 pm

Amazingly, those that bothered to do their homework are finding more and more of these truths that I’ve stated since the beginning. Most politicians today are corrupt, and while I watch people rally behind many of them, the undercurrent of what they say, how they pose themselves, and their direct interaction with their “opposition” leaves no real room for guessing where they might be — because they show all their cards from the start, or very early on!

Cain is perfectly in line with Mitt, Perry, and Christie in this fact… all of who have nearly as “unique” approaches to their stances as does Ron Paul. They’re all more progressive minds that pose to be the “Anti-Obama” while perpetuating the very same problems in their actions and statements that continue to waver or ignore the Constitutional restrictions and boundaries of what they should be doing, by way of “interpretational differences” that the People “just don’t understand…”

…and so this nation continues: an embarrassment to what the Founders stood for in not only their War for Independence, but throughout their everyday lives as well!

Mark aka 'Rokrevthin'/'Rojgiean' on August 5, 2011 at 11:08 pm

Ms. Schlussel,

Your hit piece on Herman Cain is either proof of your ignorance or your hatred of the man. Let me be clear – YOU ARE IN ERROR MADAM! I challenge you to contact the Cain campaign and get the straight scoop. Otherwise, you are helping to spread a A PACK OF LIES.

It’s odd the full details of the meeting including photos were published on Cain’s Facebook page and Twitter account, and the campaign released a detailed statement disclosing the meetimg. The matter has been fully aired, but was apparently drowned out in the media echo chamber. I sincerely hope you will do the honorable thing and actually attempt to square these claims with the record and then publish your findings.

Scott Ballinger on August 6, 2011 at 12:07 am

Rick Perry is the real deal and the answer to getting that Muslim now in office out of office !!

Larry Knight on August 17, 2011 at 10:05 am

Perry isn’t the “real deal.” He’s a bigger fraud than Obama. In the past three years, he raised Texas transfer and privilege taxes on businesses by more than 10,000% (100x). Our trucking firm’s Texas taxes went from $250 a year to almost $25,000 a year. Perry is a heavy taxer and is no friend of interstate commerce. Texas employment improved in spite of Perry, not because of him, and came about through isolationist policies that chased away out-of-state based businesses.

Hardy Workingman on August 17, 2011 at 10:35 am

Are you kidding me? You’re the only one who gets onto phony conservatives like Palin, but Cain is not a phony, and he’s not dumb or got where he is because of his complexion.

T: Making a pandering visit to the Al-Qaeda mosque is either very dumb or very sinister. Take your pick. If he were White, he’d be a nobody. Allen West is a different story. He’s the real deal. DS
