I mean his 9-9-9 tax plan was a viable SimCity strategy and he quoted Pokemon the Movie 2000 when he ended his campaign. Even in death he lives on as a meme, so why shouldn't his Twitter still be active postmortem.

I’ll co-sign to this. Your life as an influential political figure, CEO, father, sibling…all his money, didn’t mean shit in the end. His death meant nothing to the people that surrounded him. They all moved on after a tots and pears from their Facebook page. Sad. Bigly sad.

Your life as an influential political figure, CEO, father, sibling…all his money, didn’t mean shit in the end.

Imagine! You managed to achieve all that - and all you will have left on this planet is a joke; an award for weapon-grade stupidity; and a cautionary tale for generations to come: 'Don't be a HermanCain'! 'Goodness me, what a HermanCain!' "I thought you two were going steady - what happened? Ohlordy, she was such a HermanCain, it was insufferable!'

Imagine THAT as your legacy.

I always assumed he was using some sort of social media management software. A couple I used to know had a business running a bakery. They had one of those social media management programs. They planned their marketing campaigns months and months in advance, planned all the events for the coming quarter, and loaded it all in the software. It would then chug away in the background promoting the business without them having to mess with it.

Welllll, they had an EXPLOSIVE marriage breakup. In the midst of that drama, the business was closed and liquidated. The email addresses connected with the account were terminated when the web hosting account was closed.

So, their social media accounts posted happy couple vacation pictures promoting a business that no longer existed for several months while they were plowing through an extremely acrimonious divorce proceeding.

30

u/hello-this-is-gary Jul 30 '22

Yeah this far more likely the correct answer.

Lots of folks forget that you can schedule posts on most social media platforms.

Heck, twitter actually offers a surprisingly simple scheduler system already baked into their website. So you don't even need to bother getting a third-party program.

His team probably set all his tweets for that day a couple weeks in advance and forgot to turn it off. Which resulted in the magnificent beyond the grave gaff we got.

13

u/MortgageSome Jul 31 '22

It tells you a lot though doesn't it? That there were multiple people involved in maintaining an illusion, and part of the messaging of that illusion was to remind people of the "dangers" of vaccinating.

It just kind of reinforces the idea that there's a gigantic propaganda machine behind it all. We should be concerned that there is someone actively paying for the propaganda machine to run. Whoever is behind it doesn't have anyone's best interests at heart.

I do firmly believe it is the GOP.

u/rockidr4 Jul 30 '22 Gold To The Stars Awesome Answer

I think for the older ones it was growing up in constant fear of the waves of communists all at the ready to slit their throats, and being told that the only solution was constant vigilance and deference to authority figures. Their ability to think critically and thereby make their own decisions is not only stunted, it's been burned from them. They are a massive voting block who do as they are told. Who don't see politics as a sophisticated and nuanced spectrum. There's only the good guys that you vote for, and the bad guys who are worse. And when the good guys do something bad that's just evidence that the bad guys must be up to something worse. And if the bad guys win? That means those waves of communists all waiting for their opportunity to strike will come crashing down upon us to rape our daughters and murder our wives.

And when the Soviet Union fell, they just transfered all that anxiety to Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Iraq, and Iran. And because their view of the political world is not nuanced, because the communists lost, that meant their replacers were good. They don't see Vladimir Putin as the threat to world peace that he is because he's head of Russia, not the soviet union.

These are the types of people to whom social welfare programs and secret police organizations are indistinguishable. They've been told so many times that communism is the worst thing that's ever happened that they can't possibly fathom that the problem with Stalin wasn't that he wanted to provide for the proletariat, it's that he wanted to kill 3.5 million (possibly more) Ukrainians for a mixture of personal reasons and wanting to cede that land to political allies. To this group, expanding medicaid and having every single us citizen's phone lines tapped share a causal relationship.

So what solution do they offer? Sign the patriot act and let the government tap all our phones so they can find the terrorists who want to steal our freedoms. Drive trucks into sikh temples to make sure the terrorists know to live in terror. Shoot children in historically black churches for being antichristian communists. Again. Their political model isn't nuanced. If they don't do these things, they think the other, much worse, side will win

u/dweckl Jul 30 '22

If we had to get together and craft a few perfect representations of the Republican Party, this guy would be one of them.

Herman was raised dirt poor in a racist South. His dad had to work three job, at times. Herman was lucky, though, because he was born with a gift - he was reasonably intelligent, though more of a hard worker, and could do well in school.

Despite all he grew up around, he was never able to stop and appreciate that some people, like his father, we just trapped in a system. A racist, capitalist, misinformation system where people routinely voted against their interests.

He also was deeply, DEEPLY religious. He developed a focus on rigid individualism, and he was a Baptist, so he was plagued by ideology. And seemingly by a lack of empathy. Lots of rumors and accusations by many women of sexual harassment.

He was in bed with people who were insanely racist, and promoted their agendas.

Consistent with his rugged individualism, his attraction to dogma and rigid ideology, Herman didn't see a need to wear masks at mass gatherings during covid. He opposed mask mandates.

He opposed universal health care, government works programs, taxes on wealthy, etc. He was a media darling because he was black and worked hard to become successful, not because he had any really original ideas.

And he certainly did not become successful because of the ideas he espoused. If he just told people to work hard, fine, he had the credentials to say that. The rest of what he spouted was ignorant, anti-data, anti-science nonsense. And, of course, it eventually got him killed.

Also, sadly the right always likes to bring up a very small number of POC, who are also Republican, that have done well for themselves and their families, and extrapolate that anyone can become successful through hard work, and that those who remain poor just don't work hard enough. The truth is that it is a combination of many things, including luck, that make people highly successful, regardless of color.

The average person opposes it because it's painted as a commie socialist thing and they are outright racist. The rich oppose it because the American medical system is a trillion dollar industry scam.

Far too many Americans are willing to die to make others rich. That is NOT an exaggeration.

Remember, the point of this award is the death and disability don’t need to happen. Masks, distancing, isolation, and vaccinations could have saved hundreds of thousands of Americans.

Check it out: Herman Cain Award has its own Wikipedia page! So lovely that for the rest of time searching for “Herman Cain” will cause that to pop up as a suggestion.

u/Moose_is_optional Jul 30 '22

This guy had the most poetic death of any politician in recent memory. Not only is there the obvious irony of dying of covid after bragging about attending a rally and not masking up, he was already a huge meme candidate before he died, and in death he created the biggest meme of them all.

u/DrFugg Jul 30 '22

Thank you Herman Cain, thanks for your contribution to the decline of society, and for showing the world that the GOP only really cares for it's minority politicians insofar as they can use them to spout bullshit. If hell is real, i hope you feel like dedicating your lives to people who hate you on a fundamental level was worth it.

"The media worked very hard to scare people out of attending the Trump campaign rally last Saturday night in Tulsa."

"Yes, there were some empty seats in the nosebleed sections, but 16,000 people in the COVID-19 era is pretty impressive," he said/died.

Herman Cain and went.

Mad love to everyone on this sub who provides all the GOLDEN content. And last but not least thanks to Herman for being so dumb. May he be remembered for what garbage he was and for bringing so many of his haters together. Tonight I shall pour one out for his memory. F you Herman

About 2 months ago I got COVID, but didn’t realize it. For one day I was really really tired and a bit mentally out of it, but then I was fine. A few days later my girlfriend told me to get tested because she had to in order to see her newborn niece, and she tested positive. We are both triple vaxxed, both had it, and neither of us had any issues. Thank you modern medicine.

Remember that he was running around sick spreading the virus knowingly , and the people who gave it to him were doing the same thing . If each person who was sick spread it to 10 people and 1 in ten died, it stands to reason that these idiots were knowing killing each other and innocents TO OWN THE LIBS.

Never forget to stupid callousness of these assholes .
