Herman Cain: 'Stupid people are ruining America'

While speaking at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s “Road to Majority” conference in Washington, D.C. on Friday, former GOP presidential candidate and Godfather's Pizza CEO Herman Cain minced no words when he told the crowd that "stupid people are ruining America," the Daily Caller reported. He also had some choice words for the so-called "mainstream media," blaming what we call the "Democrat-media complex" for keeping Americans uninformed.

“The mainstream media is complicit in the cover-up and in the denial and in the overlooking of information for the American people,” he said. “Most people don’t even know we are in as bad a condition as we are in.”

“Because you’re not gonna hear it on the 6 o’clock news or the 7 o’clock news that only 58 percent of registered voters voted in the last presidential election,” he added. “The mainstream media said, ‘A record!’ What about the 42 percent that stayed home?”

“I’ve even heard people say, ‘Well, I don’t vote because I don’t know what’s going on,” he said. “And I say ‘Good!’ Stupid people are ruining America, and I’m glad some of them stay home!”

The audience applauded and laughed. Cain, however, wasn't finished, and said liberals don't like facts because they can't handle them.

“The solution is real simple folks,” he continued. “Those of us that are informed have got to out-vote the stupid people!”

“And," he added, "you have got to become ambassadors of intelligence, ambassadors of information. So number one, stay informed!”

"A first grader would solve problems a lot smarter than this administration," Cain said. "I'm not saying that to be insulting."

Cain also blasted Obamacare, telling the crowd that when he is asked about it, he says "it sucks."

Predictably, the left-wing hate machine roared to life, with one post at the far-left Crooks and Liars calling Cain's supporters "stupid." Another far-left website called Cain a "teabagger" and falsely claimed he was referring to his audience.

Video of Cain's comments can be seen above.
