Herman Cain Says Obama Won Because America Has a “Severe Ignorance Problem”

by Yvette Carnell

During an appearance on The O’Reilly Factor, failed presidential candidate and Fox News contributor Herman Cain threw fresh meat toHerman Cain2 Fox’s right wing base, asserting that Obama voters are ignorant. In Cain’s mind, President Obama won reelection because voters were just too stupid to know any better. Cain even took it a step further, saying  that America’s choice of Obama is indicative of a “severe ignorance  problem.”

O’Reilly scoffed at the notion. “Oh come on,” he said. “You think after that long, long campaign that you and all the other Republican hopefuls engaged in, and that [former Republican presidential candidate Mitt] Romney has a billion dollars to spend on his advertising, and you’re still telling me that the American people are misled? I mean, how dumb are we?”

“Yes Bill,” Cain replied. “We are that dumb. Keep in mind, not everybody. Remember, he got 51 percent of the popular vote. So when you say all of America, no… We have a severe ignorance problem with the people who are so mesmerized by his popularity that they are not looking at the facts.”

“Martin Luther King Jr. said 50 years ago in 1963 something that is so appropriate to today,” he concluded. “There is nothing more dangerous than serious ignorance, and that’s what we have and he gets away with it with the help of establishment media.”

This is really the worst sort of playing to the base because it only serves to inflame both sides of the political spectrum, and does nothing to advance any authentic policy discussion. Throw away conversations like these are the real reason why conservatives are so comfortable with calling liberals Libtards, and why some liberals waste no time mocking conservatives as Tea Baggers. And all Cain is doing here is adding his own personal pound of animosity to that horde mentality. It’s anti-intellectual, but it makes for good TeeVee and the folks on right eat it up. And isn’t that what political punditry is really all about?

  4. As and african american i am so ashamed of Herman Cain and also Ms Cain. I seriouly pray for you and the stupid way you talk and think. I never had any intention of voting for you for our president. When i first saw you, I could already tell you were not a honest man. I truely believe you were unfaithful to your wife. I feel very sorry for her there is not enough money in this world worth not having your spouse be faithful and loving to you As for me and my house and friend you will see us watching or listening to your bull I am ashame of you!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Herman “999” Cain defines ignorance in the dictionary where his picture is located next to the word!!! After being publicly outed by his paramour any self res[pecting decent person would take the low road, but not this big blk country Maryland Farmer!!!! ‘Uncle Tom reporting to work “Boss”‘!!!

  6. That’s why negroes (as we were called at the time) like you stood back and let Dr.King and other brave black and white people take the hostile and racist treatment of a devilish people while you stood back. Just like negroes like you who slide in to America’s progress(integration0 for blacks you show what an African president said of black Americans. “Black Americans are clones of white people” and it showed greatly as you Mr.Cain chased the skirts of as many white woman as you could and now you think you are one of them because of your 999.

  7. NOW, THAT IS THE POT CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK.

  8. My Father and Mother told us as kids never say someting bad about a person if you can’t say something good, let just say I didn’t alawys listen. Herman Cain remind me of the “House N!%*#$” that would do or say whatever Master wanted to here, basically we are NOTHING to him that ignorance Blacks, Latinos Whites, Asians, American Indians etc, Mr. Cain to 2 word for you SUCK IT…

  9. HERMAN CAIN IS A TOTAL LOOSE WILD DOG THAT NEEDS TO BE TAME AND DOMESTICATED TO BE KEPT IN A SPECIAL PLENITIENTARY FOR EXHIBITION FOR GENERATION OF BLACK CHILDREN TO SEE THE FOOL KEEPING THE ‘GATE’ CLOSE ON THEM

  10. I think Malcolm X, Frantz Fanon, E Evers, Walter Rodney, Lumumba and other well-meaning Black exponents would be terrified and turning in their graves that “Home Negros” is not only mental dysfunctional but deep disease that need a special vacine for the cure. Herman Mcain is going through a process of total mental and personality disorder. May God save us from group of Human beings with brain of a lizard.

  13. Mr. Cain is “projecting” in psychological terms. When someone projects, he accuses another person of doing or saying what he, himself, is doing or saying. Now that Mr. Cain has a job with Faux Noise, he has to earn his keep by trashing President Obama. If Cain can do that regularly, he will keep his job. Modern day Uncle Tom.

  15. I WAS IGNORANT OF HOW IGNORANT you really are Mr.Cain,Thank God for IGNORANCE–its where the TRUTH comes from. PEACE!!!!

  16. It really saddens me when people, especially Blacks suffer from self-hatred. They always do or say anything against their race to please the white man, Period. I’ve never understood this. I don’t care about the politics of it but as we know, people like HC makes for trash tv, such as Faux News and others of the closed-minded ilk.

  17. While I respect Mr. Cain’s right to his “ignorant” opinions, I’m more disturbed that this type of talk on Faux News is what they love. They love when Blacks insult or criticize this President. No president will ever please all the people, however, saying that those who voted for President Obama are ignorant is very harsh and not an intelligent thing for him to say. I’m not even going to touch how he didn’t understand the context of Dr. Martin Luther King’s statement. Sad!!

  18. Yes it’s called the GOP.

  19. Yes it’s called the GOP.

  20. This dude reminds of Samuel Jackson when he played the “Uncle Tom” funny as hell. Ha,ha,ha; I would not pay this dude any attention. He is one of the field negroes that they utilized as slave drivers on plantations. “Massa sick, us sick, too.” He stated Dr. King’s words in a faulty manner. Sadly, there are many other Hermaine Caines that really set Black people very far behind. However, we as people must work together and strive for excellent in our communities that are dying each day.

  21. ICDATRUTHSIMETIMES

    Do people realize that Herman ” uncle ruckus” Cain grew up in the segregated south ( Georgia) and has witnessed Jim Crow and lynchings by whites by yet he rides the koch brother’s nuts like a rodeo bull! ( sorry about that) but how can someone as bought and paid for
    as he is (see anything on you tube) call someone ignorant?

  22. Herman Cain is neo-slave –“a Yes Sir.” to rich White Republicans. Look what Herman Cain called us – brain washed with low IQs – that included his wife Gloria. In fact Cain disavowed being African-American. He claimed his ancestors came from England. All his friends are rich republicans such as Koch Brothers. Last year he thought he was accepted by Republican as GOP nominee. They let him down- revealing he was groping white women. Remember Allen West. He preferred Blacks on cotton or tobacco plantations than being free to choose our destiny. Last election he lost. Now he is coming to his senses. Republicans have distanced themselves from West. Don’t forget Michael Steele. Republicans cajoled him to defeat Obama in 2008. So Steele talked bad about candidate Obama. When Obama won the election Republicans dumped Steele as unwanted. Now he wants to turn democrat. But Steele had abandoned Blacks and President Obama. Cain, like many dumb Blacks, is hypocrite-Cain would love to sell a fellow Black as slave to a rich republican. God will punish Cain.

  23. Herman Hawkins Jr.

    If anyone is ignorant, it is Cain himself. The people knew exactly who they were voting for and why. Cain and his fellow tea baggers need to respect that.

  24. Not worth repling to. Such a joker, such a nut. I just prayer that the normal people would outweigh the racist. God hears and answer prayers. Dumb Her brown nosed his way to the top. He is such a nut. I hate to own the fact that ther are any more black men like him left.

  25. “Yes Bill,” Cain replied. “We are that dumb…” Is Cain saying he voted for Obama, too?

  26. Herman know those Republicans don’t care for him,he’s after the money an the recognition! He’s going to say exactly what they want him to say! He is the REAL LIVE Stephen! He could have played himself in DEJANGO! They are showing Herman for what he is. Thank GOD some of us can see it!

  27. He is entitled to his opinion!

    I think people voted for the President again because they had hope!

    Now, I didn’t vote for him a 2nd time because I distrust him! I criticized this President the same way I criticized the former President, for me he didn’t stack up! I’m a capitalist and have learn to go for the dollar rather than the continuous helping hand! Because Romney loss it hasn’t slowed me down, neither has President Obama’s tax increase that he said we wouldn’t get.

    Don’t get me wrong I like the President, I just feel he has no idea what makes a business grow or that the government can’t run without business, (that’s where the government gets it’s tax money from) no business no tax, no social programs!

    • I like President Baraka Obama because I like to hear it said. {President Barake Obama}

      I take issuer with your notion that businesses can’t grow if they pay high taxes, and that somehow leads to no money for social programs. I say, Businesses don’t heir because they have lower taxes rates. They grow because people have a demand for their products and services, when they have money. Then and only then will they heir and have enough money for their taxes.

  28. This Dude is so out of touch he doesn’t realize that if he were a Democrat,he would be called an Angry Black Man by the Republican Party..

  29. Why do you think fox hire these Jokers who have been kicked to the Curb by Intelligent Voters,they need this Crap from these Losers to help boost their Ratings,Cain still doesn’t realize it was his own Party that exposed his Cheating ways,and he has the nerves to call someone Ignorant.

  30. HermanCain who? Uncle Tom ignorant a..hole. He could not represent my dog.lolol,
    And the white trailor park thrash he lied. About from Georgia, if I had been married to him I would have dumped his ugly ass and took his ass to the bank. he can kiss Obama s ass.

  31. Herman Cain is a uncle Tom who is playing to the white man to be elevated. if anyone is ignorant its him. He needs to take his pizza selling stupidity back to where he came from. Obama is an Attorney who is a politician and he too smart for the establishment of Republicans. Herman Cain is a jealous fool.

  32. Listen to Cain and you will immediately know who is ignorant. Cain is only wanting The Tea Party to like him and the only way he can get them to do this is to say what he thinks they want to hear.

    I listened to him speak and he is a total joke. He made some money but, making money does not make you intelligent nor does it merit him being our President. We would have been a joke if Cain were in office. Noone would take The US serious. Then he would have to have someone tell him what to do because he has no ideal.

    I bet his parent’s are ashame of him.
