Herman Cain caught joking about Anita Hill

Herman Cain has said that he takes sexual harassment allegations “seriously” — but he wasn’t so serious when he was caught on tape Thursday yucking it up over alleged harassment victim Anita Hill.

Fox News was the first to air video of Cain getting a big belly laugh as a supporter was joking about Hill, a woman who claimed that she had been sexually harassed by Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas while he supervised her at the Department of Education and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in the 1980s.

“He spoke about … such matters as women having sex with animals and films showing group sex or rape scenes,” Hill testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee in 1991. She said Thomas had on several occasions described “his own sexual prowess.”

At least four women have also accused Cain of sexual harassment during his time as head of the National Restaurant Association. Like Thomas before him, Cain has completely denied any wrongdoing, but claimed to ABC News, “I have taken [the allegations] seriously.”

Defenders of Cain have even gone as far as to refer to the scandal as a “high-tech lynching,” a term first coined during Thomas’ Supreme Court confirmation.

At a campaign event in Kalamazoo, Michigan Thursday, Cain couldn’t contain his laughter at a supporter’s joke about Hill.

“Did you hear the latest news today?” the supporter asked. “Anita Hill is going to …,” but the rest of the joke was inaudible.

Cain doubled over in laughter for a moment and finally raised up his arms, asking with a grin, “Is she going to endorse me?”

The Cain campaign quickly dismissed the controversy.

“It was a joke,” Cain spokesman J.D. Gordon told The New York Times, adding that the candidate was only “repeating what a supporter said.”

At the CNBC Republican presidential debate Wednesday, the former CEO had referred to Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), the most powerful woman in the U.S. Congress, as “Princess Nancy.”

All of this may leave some voters wondering about Cain’s esteem for women, but he has dismissed those concerns.

“I have been a professional. I respect women,” he declared at a tele-townhall event last week.

Update: Cain responded Friday by saying the remarks about Hill were not “intended to be an insult.”

“We walked into this room and someone said that – one of my supporters said, ‘Anita Hill was trying to contact you’ and my response was, ‘Is she going to endorse me?’” the candidate told journalist Fred Dicker. “He said it in a humorous way. I gave a humorous response.”

“It was in no way intended to be an insult to Anita Hill or anybody else.”

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why/

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent
false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material. Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
