Herman Cain Backs off on Anti-Islam Comments!

Back in late March possible presidential candidate Herman Cain (Georgia, U.S.), stated that he would not bring any Muslims into his cabinet. This interview can be seen by clicking HERE. Today Cain does an a 180 on us and clearly lies about what he did say in the past interview. How disappointing.

Hat tip to Amber Rose.

Herman Cain: Muslim comments ‘misconstrued’

Herman Cain wants to correct the record: He would consider a Muslim for his cabinet or as a federal judge if he’s elected president.

Cain’s clarification comes two months after he initially said he wouldn’t have any Muslim appointees, stoking controversy and criticism from a leading Muslim advocacy group.

“That statement is not what I said. It has been misconstrued,” Cain told Glenn Beck on his radio show Tuesday.

Asked in March if he would consider putting a Muslim in a top position, the Atlanta businessman told the liberal blog Think Progress he wouldn’t.

“And here’s why: There’s this creeping attempt, there’s this attempt to gradually ease Sharia law and the Muslim faith into our government.”

In the appearance on Beck’s radio show, Cain admitted that he responded to the question hastily.

“I immediately said – without thinking – ‘No, I would not be comfortable,’” he said. “I did not say that I would not have them in my cabinet. If you look at my career, I have hired good people regardless of race, religion, sex gender, orientation and this kind of thing.”

Mr. Cain I must say, I just watched your original interview twice, and you are a terrible liar. It is clear what you said, and you should have stuck to that!

Side note: This reminds me of when the NY Daily News contacted me about an interview that was supposed to be about a proposed Mosque in Brooklyn. However when they called me most of the interview was about comments I made on this site. Instead of backing down and making excuses for what I said, I told them I know what I said and I am sticking to it. They never did run the interview. The moral of the story is: It is more important to stay true to yourself, than to try and please everybody. Stick to your principals my friends!

    Yes, it is time for our politicians to use “deceit” the way a mooslum uses deceit. First off, we must stop mooslum immigration to this country NOW, then we simply deny them any political power through a conscious but unspoken understanding that the majority of us realize: they do not want to be American, they want to be mooslum and pisslam is a totalitarian, supremacist ideology that has not place in the free world. Do not acknowledge them as we go about securing our borders and passing new immigration legislation. A country that admits people into it whose political philosophy says they want to kill you and they have killed many of you already, has no place in America. Deny them. Minimize their community impact everywhere. Educate Americans about what their unholy book says and their cultural customs and waring nature of their ideology. But in the meantime, let it be a stealth castration.

    He may have backpedaled, but we know where his heart is. Cain loves this country and its heritage. God bless him.

    How do you know when a politician is lying? Look to see if their mouth is moving. Typical politician, pander and side step so as not to make a voting block mad. That’s why I’m voting for Ron Paul

      Ron Paul thinks Islam is no threat to America.

        Ron Paul is too liberal for America at this time. I also believe he supports Palestine. Some of you like that, I don’t.

    Cain, don’t be ashamed to say the truth.

    The truth is what the world needs right now, desperately, and I don’t want muslims in the American Government.

    Good bye Cain, was nice knowing you!

    Maybe Grover Norquist had a little chat with Cain.

      Don’t you mean Grover Norquist and Chris Christy? He protects and hires them also.

        I believe that Grover is married to a muslim, if I am not mistaken.

    Is there no one who will stand up for this country and say that Islam is evil? I am beginning to wonder.

    • May 26, 2011 at 12:50 am

      We must educate the candidates and disrespectfully demand that they tell and stick with the truth about Islam.

      We need to set up a pledge page, perhaps on Facebook, where members of the Electorate can swear that they will not vote for any candidate who does not recognize Islam as the enemy and condemn it, naming the five critical elements which make Islam intolerable.

      I wrote a statement today on a conservative site, that I had changed my mind on Herman Cain because he said he would hire muslims to be in his administration. I also said that I tolerate muslims about as much as they tolerate Christians and Jews. Needless to say, it was deleted. I guess that is hate speech these days. Was I wrong?

        To assert that Muslims do not tolerate Christians and Jews is not unfair . . . if you are a non-Muslim.
        But if you are a Muslim, you would take great offense. Muslims have called Christians and Jews ingrates because they allow them to live with certain conditions.
        Pay the jizyah.
        Wear the zunnar.
        Accept the rape and humiliation on a daily basis.
        Y’know. Those conditions.
        Now, the infidels who are not Jews or Christians don’t even have the right to live.
        So, in Muslim eyes, you should be grateful for the little bit of space you do get.
        Your statement is not unfair at all.
        In fact, in light of history, it makes perfect sense.
        So all I can say is that the choice of the site to delete your comment comes from a twisted, stupid commitment to the “unity in diversity” multiculturalism, or it comes from an unspoken commitment to Islam.
        Either way, it’s anti-democratic and dishonest.
        I’m glad you’re here.

        And Muslims DO NOT tolerate Christians and Jews.
        They accuse Jews of being stubborn and stupid.
        They accuse Christians of polytheism.
        End of story.
        No.
        The assertion that Islam tolerates “people of the book” is a lie.
        The only book, and the only people they tolerate is the Koran and themselves.

        In that order, of course.
        Because in Muslim eyes, one page of the Koran is worth the blood of thousands.
        History proves it again and again.

    That didn’t take long. Will we have a Geert Wilders in America stand up and tell the truth? Not optimistic about that.

    Anyone without intellectual perspicuity has no place leading a country at the cabinet level. A devotee of the Koran is short of the needed brain cells. Islam calls for the killing of those who refuse to be subjugated. Islam is not a religion as much as it is a culture in itself. Their goal is the subjugation of the USA. Let’s encourage them to go to any of the 58 countries that are already in their grasp.

    Once again a politician capitulates to Islam. What is so wrong with telling the truth? Why are Politicians so worried about what Muslims have to say? Someone please grow a set!

    From what I’ve seen of Allen West, he is very anti-Islam. Maybe one of your readers could comment if he has made any specific statements about having Muslims in government.

    • Nancy Robertshaw

      I would be surprised if Allen West agrees with having Muslims in our government. Please don’t disappont me Congressman West!

          Thank you. I must say that I get so mad when I see people turn PC when it comes to Islam.

    • May 26, 2011 at 12:53 am

      I do not have knowledge of any such statement, but he is on record, in writing that he is “not opposed to Islam”, which has been “hijacked by extremists”.

      He wrote that in response to four traitors in clerical colars who bitched him out for telling the truth about Islam.

    He may have been threatened, or his family in some way, so it`s hard to be judgemental!
    He was so outspoken in what he said so something`s rattled him badly to force this climbdown!

    We should never judge a man from what they say about him, rather listen to his words.

    http://youtu.be/w5uHEZQfCpg

    Of all the Candidates I have heard so far he is the only questioned about a Muslim appointment.

    I think people shouldn’t overreach conclusions and listen to his affirmation about his stance on Muslims in his Cabinet.

    It is really sad that some are over killing through our own personal fears, the only Conservative candidate that had the moral “cojones” to publicly affirm his zealousness in affirming his dislikes and objection against Sharia Law, and Muslims who profess it and impose it to the world.

    He has gone almost ‘ad infinitum’ to assure this, yet people jump to conclusions and call the person a liar, just because some undue unscrupulous press tactics, a ‘stonewalling’ that wouldn’t occur, had the man be so precise about his conviction.

      I called him a liar, because he did lie when he said I never said that. I want politicians like Geert Wilders who NEVER back off.
