I don’t think Herman Cain realizes that he is costing the 2012 Presidential elections as he jokes about Latino immigrant deadly fences. We all know the outrage we would hear if anyone made any jokes about the Jewish community and the Hitler camps. Equally heinous would be any jokes and remarks made of slave lynchings and hangings, therefore, the Latino community will NOT support any candidate who has a history of demonizing the immigrants. The worst GOP Candidates ever so are are Herman Cain and Mitt Romney. Looks like their strategy to ditch the Latin vote in order to gain Anglo voters might work.
Herman Cain visited the State of Arizona and he refused to apologize for his electric fence remark today.
According to the Phoenix New Times:
“I don’t like to offend anyone…however, I don’t apologize for using a combination of a fence. And it might be electrified — I’m not walking away from that….” <snip>
“Why are they going after you? What about me? We’re both unorthodox, right,” Arpaio butted in during Cain’s press conference. “I have illegal immigrants in the hot tents. I have them on chain-gangs, why are you concerned with what he said?”
It’s not a “who treats immigrants the shittiest” contest, Joe.

On a different note, Latino Activist, Santiago James Chavez, created a cartoon expressing his sentiments with regard to Cain’s atrocious remarks which advocated deadly electric fences against Latin immigrants. You can see the video here.
