Alinsky: 1, Herman Cain: 0

Cain has officially dropped out of the race. The Alinskyites and their modern lynching campaign won this round.

Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective.)” ~ Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals

The Wall Street Journal reports:

Herman Cain on Saturday suspended his campaign for the White House, ending an unlikely run that saw him briefly lead the Republican presidential field but falter amid accusations that he had sexually harassed several women and conducted an extramarital affair.

Mr. Cain continued to deny those allegations Saturday and said they were being perpetuated by the media and political class.

“I am suspending my presidential campaign, because of the continued distractions, the continued hurt caused on me and my family,” Mr. Cain said with his wife, Gloria, standing behind him.

He added he intended to remain an advocate in the campaign and would make an endorsement in the 2012 race.

Mr. Cain said the allegations against him had “sidetracked” his campaign and hurt his ability “to present solutions” to the American people.

Surveys have shown GOP voters abandoning Mr. Cain in recent weeks, and that his remaining supporters are mostly likely to move to candidates Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich, with Mr. Gingrich positioned to get the bigger boost.

First Palin, now Cain.

There are two possible culprits behind this take-down: 1) establishment Republicans who didn’t want a Tea Party outsider they couldn’t control, or 2) the Democrats, who can’t afford to allow conservative women or blacks to shatter their mantra that the GOP is a white man’s party.

I can believe either one.  The Establishment GOP certainly piled on the campaign to destroy Sarah Palin, and they haven’t lifted a finger to help Cain.

If it WAS the Republicans, then their selfishness just handed back Obama his favorite weapon: the race card.  Cain was a serious threat to the White House because he could have split the black vote, which Obama couldn’t afford to lose. (Palin was terrifying to the Left for the same reason threatening their supposed monopoly on the women’s vote.)

Conservatives need to expose these tactics and bring them to the voters’ awareness. There’s no reason why the average American shouldn’t be able to recognize an Alinskyite smear campaign when they see one.  The next 24 hours, THAT’s what the pundits should be harping on: making Saul Alinsky and his “Rules For Radicals” Leftist playbook household names.

These are scuzzy, underhanded tactics, and as long as Americans continue to be duped by them, the Left will be encouraged to use them.

It won’t stop with Cain. They’re already gearing up for their next target.
