Bloggings: Which is a greater disqualification for the presidency - unproven sexual harassment allegations, taking money from the Koch brothers, or advocating mass killing of immigrants? Take your pick. By Roger Algase

Rate this Entry

Herman Cain's clownish, grotesque candidacy for the highest office in the land may have crashed in flames on Holloween, when obviously inconsistent statements that he made about an apparent settlement of alleged sexual harassment claims some 15 or 20 years ago came to the surface. Cynics, or perhaps realists, are already seeing the long hand of Karl Rove.


Rove, evidently, unlike the great majority of Republicans who seem to be answering the pollsters, actually wants his party to win next year's presidential election. Therefore, Cain had to go. The Republicans already have a big enough problem with other ludicrous, obviously unfit presidential candidates. No one should minimize the seriousness of sexual harassment as a disqualification to be president of the United States, though even without this issue, Cain would already be disqualified because of the money he has reportedly taken from the Koch brothers.


But, even if it were certain that Cain had made inappropriate statements or suggestions to two anonymous women and then tried to cover this up, something which is very far from having been proven as of this writing, we have to ask which is more serious: using inappropriate language toward women, or calling for the electrocution of thousands of women - and men -  trying to enter the United States to escape poverty and drug cartel terror, and then passing it off as a joke.


Both are horrible. But judging from the headlines, the former is more serious in today's America. That says something about our society. Not something good.

    I don't know what is worse, the clowns who are running for President from the GoP, or the clown that is currently holding the office.

    I just saw the statistic that in the first six months of fiscal year 2011, the Obama Administration has Deported 46,000 mothers and fathers of U.S. Citizen children.

    So much for ending the destruction of families to deportation.

    I also read that the ACLU has recently filed a lawsuit claiming 200 reports of sexual abuse of immigrant detainees in immigration detention. This report comes almost exactly two years to the day that the Obama administration announced their "ambitious plan to repair the immigration detention system."

    Another broken promise.

    Add this to this Administration's disproportionately higher rate of deportations of Hispanics, coupled with systemic racial profiling of Hispanics through Secure Communities, and you are looking at the worst record in history when it comes to immigrant rights.

    The bottom line is that neither party could give a rat's *** about immigrants and immigration reform.

    It is time for immigration reform activists to back a third party Presidential candidate to send a message to Washington:

    No reform, no vote.

    Rewarding President Obama with our vote sends the wrong message to Washington. That message is that the Hispanic/reform vote can be taken for granted, and our issues ignored. This message yields the end result of a knife in the back in the voting booth.

    Fool me once: shame on you. Fool me twice: shame on me.

    Reform activists need to start acting like the NRA, and put all of our efforts towards supporting immigration reform candidates, while actively campaigning against those who oppose the issue.

    I put President Obama in the later category, as his and his administration's actions speak much more bluntly than his empty reform rhetoric.

    I entirely agree. It makes no sense to vote for Obama, because he is actually doing what the Republicans are only talking about. His only appeal to the immigrant vote is one of fear, that the Republicans would be even worse. Yes, they would be worse, but what is already happening is so bad that it is only marginally more tolerable that what we would get from Republican/Tea Party anti-Latino, anti-Asian lunatics like Bachmann, Cain, et al. Many are criticizing Obama for an anatomical deficiency which I have referred to before. But now immigrant rights advocates need to grow the same equipment that Obama lacks - a backbone, of course.?




    A backbone means a third party. What are the immigrant rights organizations waiting for? Obamas missing anatomical equipment to come into place? They will be waiting for ever.

    Thank you, Matthew,


    I really appreciate your blogs too. Obama badly needs someone to hold his feet to the fire (since he does have a pair of those, at least). No one is doing this better than you!
