It’s 2010′s Hottest Tea Party Leader, Dale Robertson!

by Jim Newell

“Dale Robertson, a Tea Party activist who operates TeaParty.org, is getting stung for an old photo — taken at the Feb. 27, 2009 Tea Party in Houston — in which he holds a sign reading ‘Congress = Slaveowner, Taxpayer = Niggar.’ After the ResistNet listerv promoted ‘Liberty Concerts’ to be held by TeaParty.org, a source passed on this photo of Robertson…” WHAT? IT’S JUST AN EXPRESSION. (Keep in mind that the president of TeaParty.org, which will put on this year’s ‘Freedom Concerts,’ would be essentially the most important figure on the American Right.)

Maybe he just left off the “d”

Way Cool Larry January 4, 2010 at 1:31 pm

He just forgot to write out the rest — it was supposed to be: Taxpayer = niggardly with our money, Congress, please!

Carrie_Okie January 4, 2010 at 1:32 pm

Couldn’t spell “Morans.”

queeraselvis v 2.0 January 4, 2010 at 1:33 pm

This, from the same person who spells “dictionary” with a (silent) k, and “moron” with an a.

Mahousu January 4, 2010 at 1:33 pm

Wait – it’s on a sheet of paper taped onto the bottom of his sign. Is it covering up something worse?

freakishlystrong January 4, 2010 at 1:33 pm

Racist Teabaggar = Moran.

SmutBoffin January 4, 2010 at 1:33 pm

Just to remind everybody, the whole tea Party thing is not about racism. Never crossed their minds.

Apparently the original spelling was even more off, if the cut/paste job for niggar is any indication.

That sign was obviously Photoshopped to make Mr. Robertson look ignorant.

In the original, the “N” word was correctly spelled.

Dale is the founder of TeaParty.org, the group who produced the “I Guess I’m A Racist” video advertisement last year.

Can’t make this shit up.

Also, on their website, they deplore the fact that the gubmint is spending money on such things as minority prostate cancer research, and installation of handicap access and a sprinkler system at a community club in NY. Shit, some of us aren’t even handicapped….and a lot of folks don’t have no goddam prostate! Fend for yo’ self, libtards!

Oh hey, here is a possible explanation from the “About Us” section of Mr. Dale’s teabagger site:

“Dale was an inspirational player in one of the most successful High School sport teams. His history included facing down ethnic gang members while protecting the innocent and the U.S. flag.”

Apparently he had to defend the Flag against some Ethnics who were bent on destroying the U.S., which is why he is a Hero. (Sorry, just love his Random capitalization thing.) Also, being Inspirational in High School.

RoscoePColtraine January 4, 2010 at 3:06 pm

Oh, fuck. It gets better. On his About Us page, Dale has graced us with a “Word From The Founder,” in which he rambles on about how great he is, begining in the third person, sometimes forgetting (oops!) and slipping into first person, but always going back to the third person when a really poignant, laudative statement is to be made about himself.

It’s the hallmark of a crappy, do-it-yourself website I’ve come to notice. Craptastic.

[url]This is too much.[/url]

[i]Dale Robertson is a man of courage and conviction, a rare commodity in today’s topsy-turvy world…

Initially Dale served his nation first as a U.S. Marine. After completing his duties with the Corps, he reenlisted into the U.S. Navy and became a U.S. Naval Officer. During his distinguished time of service, Dale’s Battle Group was first to the scene on 9/11 as well as first to launch an offensive in Afghanistan. He was stationed on the USS Sacramento which was the life blood of the Battle Group. He faithfully served our nation with Honor and Integrity, retiring after 22 years.

Dale Roberson’s [/i][sic] [i]academic background includes extended training in theology, as well as excelling in the field of Engineering at Southwest College, San Diego, California. He went on to earn a second degree in Political Science at the University of Washington, Seattle, Washington. [/i]
