Herman Cain is not offended by the sad short-sightedness of Morgan Freemans hate

Hotair posted this video with the headline Video: Guy who you’ve loved in every role he’s ever played hates your guts

The video and following comes from Newsbusters:

Is that what it shows, or does it show that people – not just those in the Tea Party – have lost faith in this President?

Obama’s poll numbers continue to sink. This includes amongst reliably Democratic supporters such as Jews and African-Americans?

Have Jews and African-Americans suddenly become black haters?

The reality is that more and more people – even some in the media, perish the thought – are coming to the conclusion that Barack Obama was totally unqualified for the job as president, and that his performance in the past 32 months proves it.

What folks like Freeman don’t get is that there’s nothing racist about such feelings, and to make such an accusation is, well, racist.

Unfortunately, such accusations are destined to get louder and more frequent as we near Election Day and the chances for a second Obama victory based on nothing but hope, change, and ether continue to diminish.

Actor Alan Cumming, also on Piers Morgan charged the Tea Party with ‘Homophobia and Racism’, as is common among those outside the Tea Party who don’t know anything about it other than they don’t like it because they disagree with it’s objective of smaller government and lower taxes.

When Tea Party candidate Hermain Cain won the Florida straw poll, he was asked by Neil Covuto about Morgan Freemans slur against his group:

NEIL CAVUTO: Morgan Freeman, the actor, has been very critical of Tea Parties, and said that what they’re doing is racist based, and going after and unseating Obama has at its underpinnings racism. I’m paraphrasing here, but what do you make of that argument?

HERMAN CAIN: Well, first of all, I doubt if Morgan Freeman, with all due respect, who is a great actor, has he ever been to a Tea Party? Most of the people that are criticizing the Tea Parties, Neil, about having a racist element, they have never been to a Tea Party.

CAVUTO: But wait a minute, wait a minute. He has played, wait, wait, wait. He has played a President of the United States.

CAIN: Oh. Great, yeah, in a movie. This is real life out here on the campaign trail, man. This is not a movie.

CAVUTO: So, are you offended by that?

CAIN: No, I’m not offended by it. I just, I just think that it is sad that they’re so short-sighted in really understanding what the whole Tea Party citizen movement is all about. I’m not offended by it, because it doesn’t slow down my momentum. It doesn’t slow down the reaction that I get from people. They know that I bring my message from the heart and the head, and they’re responding to it. So, name calling is something that’s going to continue in this because they don’t know how to stop this movement. And this movement is making a big difference in politics, because a lot of the traditional Democrats are moving to the center or moving over to vote for conservatives. They’re taking another look at a Herman Cain.

BEHOLD! The face of the ANGRY TEA PARTY, responding to the ugliest most vicious charge of hate there is by beginning with “with all due respect”, complimenting the excellence achieved in the accusers craft and going on to essentially say “I believe you are misinformed”.

    I agree with freeman. Obama was qualified and still is the best. You all will rather tie his hands and watch america go down and sacrifice the USA, just to make Obama look bad.
