Herman Cain: Thank God My Arab Doctor Wasn’t Muslim!

22 November 2011 General 8 Comments Email This Post Email This Post

In case it wasn’t obvious already, Herman Cain’s brief outreach to the Muslim community to atone for his unending list of inflammatory statements is definitely over.

Visiting a Jesus-themed amusement park in Orlando, Cain gave a moving speech to visitors after the daily reenactment of the crucifixion about his experience battling colon cancer. But per Yahoo’s Chris Moody, things got awkward once the topic turned to his choice of physician:

He did have a slight worry at one point during the chemotherapy process when he discovered that one of the surgeon’s name was “Dr. Abdallah.”

“I said to his physician assistant, I said, ‘That sounds foreign-not that I had anything against foreign doctors-but it sounded too foreign,” Cain tells the audience. “She said, ‘He’s from Lebanon.’ Oh, Lebanon! My mind immediately started thinking, wait a minute, maybe his religious persuasion is different than mine! She could see the look on my face and she said, ‘Don’t worry, Mr. Cain, he’s a Christian from Lebanon.'”

“Hallelujah!” Cain says. “Thank God!”

The crowd laughs uneasily.

This isn’t a new story: Cain told it repeatedly this Spring, playing it up for Christian audiences especially. But since that time Cain made a brief – apparently abortive – attempt to apologize to Muslim leaders for his bigoted statements and refocus his campaign on the economy. Looks like that stretch is over.

  1. Way to go Mr. Cain, just one more step this way to the cliff from which you will plummet away from any chance to become a real leader of the diverse American public, plummet downward to obscurity due to your stupid, bigotted remarks and attitudes. Your defeat is by your own hands or mouth I should say!!

  2. This person is Racist to the bone. I thought there were laws against hatred incitement. If this is not, then I guess what is it.
    Anyway I really wish this racist stupid person carries on with this behavior and even gets elected, then I hope that all the middle eastern rich oil countries pull their $$ out of the american banks, and only then he would realize what his filthy mouth did! I am sure it stinks as soon as he opens it!

  3. Herman Cain is a xenophobic idiot, who among other things is famous for sexual harassing numerous women and being involved in an Enron style corruption fiasco at a company he once worked at called Aquila. Also Herman Cain is pretty much the living embodiment of Uncle Ruckus lol; that is an Uncle Tom!

  4. instead of worrying about his doctor’s religious belief, how about being faithful to your wife?? Respect women and stop your sexual scandals???? He’s such a JACKASS!!!!

  5. I dont kno whether to belive the scandals but i laugh at the fact that he thinks his doctors religion will interfere with his treatment. Hes a doctor! Chill!

  6. Go do the dishes at the restaurants.

  7. Definition of an UNCLE TOM: fanatical tap-dancing for the benefit of massa and saying what HE wants to hear as a method of advancement.

    I really hope Buster Rhymes, Dave Chappelle, Muhammad Ali, Jermaine Jackson, Kareem Abdul-Jabar, Shaquille O’Neal, Rasheed Wallace, Ice Cube, and MN. Rep. Keith Ellison weren’t listening… they aren’t Arabs mind you but the “thank God” comment might hurt a few feelings…y’know?

    Heck even Stepin Fetchit is Muslim!!!

  8. I have to say this, but Herman Cain is the Real Life Uncle Ruckus. Because when you hear the way he talks, especially about how he is “proud” to know the Koch Brothers, you will know what I mean. If anyone reads this, don’t call me a racist, because I am stating the facts, because the facts are not racist.

Have your say!
