Herman Cain Urges Uninformed Voters To Stay Home: ‘Stupid People Are Ruining America!’

Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain lambasted low-information voters who still participate in elections, urging them to stay home and declaring that “stupid people are ruining America!”

Cain spoke at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s “Road to Majority” conference in Washington, D.C. Friday, insisting that the conservative audience “stay informed” in order to push back against liberalism’s broad dominance in government and media.

“The mainstream media is complicit in the cover-up and in the denial and in the overlooking of information for the American people,” the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO explained. “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,” Cain said. “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 continued. “And I say ‘Good!’ Stupid people are ruining America, and I’m glad some of them stay home!”

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