Tea Party Founder Racist and Stupid

Tea Party Founder Racist and Stupid

There are 740 comments on the dscriber.com story from Jan 4, 2010, titled Tea Party Founder Racist and Stupid. In it, dscriber.com reports that:

Dale Robertson, who claims to be the "president and founder" of the Tea Party might not be able to spell very well, but he sure knows how to offend. Robertson owns TeaParty.org, an online clearinghouse for conservative rhetoric that aims to turn America away from the alleged brink of socialism. As the Tea Party gears up for a "national strike" on January 20 to protest the one-year anniversary of Barack Obama's inauguration as president, a photo of Robertson on the Houston Tea Party's website taken nearly a year ago highlights some controversial views on race. Robertson holds a sign reading, “Congress = Slaveowner, Taxpayer = Niggar.”

The fact that he is there with a sign that has a misspelled racial insult is the entire story. Its not irrellevant.
Robertson isnt an "A-hole in the mix"...he is the TEA PARTY FOUNDER, and he turned out to be exactly what we expected him to be! he is racist and uneducated!
What I find the funniest about the tea parties is that they are supposedly fighting tax increases, when the FACT is that white trash like robertson will get a tax CUT under Obama.
I also love hearing foolish righties complain that their 2009 taxes went up because of Obama. the tax code for 2009 was signed in the year prior, as all are, By Bush. The lies and stupidity are simply hillarious!
Mister,

Let's start by saying I forgot more than you'll ever know. That being said, the difference between you and I is that you wear your emotions on your sleeve and truly hate your opponents. I'll give you a piece of advice. Don't get emotional, it interferes with your reasoning and judgement in dealing with your opponents.

By the way, the Bush tax decreases sunset 12/31/10. At that time, all tax brackets revert to what they were including for the lowest bracket taxpayers. Their taxes will increase by 50%.(from 10% to 15% of taxable income). The government is so strapped for cash they don't give a rat's ass where they get the money from, including the working poor.

Maybe I've been living under a rock, but I don't remember when T.E.A.(which stood for,Taxed Enough Already) got hijacked by this idiot and turned into a synonym for racism. I think that this guy is a plant by progressives to derail the reformist movement. It was started to recall in a symbolic manner the The Boston Tea Party. In which Americans protested the crushing, unrepresented, and unfair taxes that were being levied by the British Empire on all goods. Kind of like the tax situation that we find ourselves in now.
I have to go now. I need time to get my head around the fact that I just had to explain that to my fellow countrymen.

What the heck...

This is commonplace. One jerk through his or her actions brings discredit to a group with a reasonable and legitimate purpose. Combine that with another group of idiots who reason from the specific to the general (i.e.- there is one a-hole in the group so it follows the entire group is a bunch of a-holes) and you have the purpose for this thread.

Are there people who are ignorant racists that feel they are taxed too much and that their government is not responsive? Certainly! However, most people are not racists and DO have a legitimate concern.

What the jackass was trying to say in his moronic manner is that he feels like a slave to the government. What he said was racist, what he was trying to say wasn't. He obviously wasn't bright enough to realize that some people would seize ONLY on his misspelled racial slur, make a big deal about it all the while ignoring the intent of the what he was trying to say.

Anybody who has been married or otherwise involved with a person for a long time has undoubtedly said the following......."listen to what I'm trying to tell you, not how I'm saying it" Sometimes people try to make their point in the some of the most effed-up ways.

There are NO EXCUSES for expressing oneself in a racist and disrespectful manner.

That being said.....It's all well and good for people to protest what they are unhappy about. I am certain, as you say, that there are well intentioned people out there who are passionate about their causes and have every right to come out and say so. Why does it have to involve personal attacks against a man's race, religion or family? As someone pointed out earlier all it takes is a few and then a "mob mentality" takes over. It becomes easier for people to think it's OK to attack using racial epithets especially when it is a so-called "leader" who doing it. Unless you've lived under a rock for the last 18 months, you've no doubt seen and heard it during the campaign and after the election. Yes, people are angry, but that does not excuse such behavior.

Bottom line....stick to protesting the issues. As for the "theories" that the racists among the teabaggers are "plants," that's highly unlikely (not impossible, but not common place). I have personally seen intelligent people turn into whiny racists at the mere mention of Obama's policies. Despite Republican/Conservative denial...racism is at play here.

NO EXCUSES.

You'll get no argument from me.....there are NO EXCUSES.....PERIOD. I have a very low level of tolerance for that shit but at the same time realize are stupid people out there. They say things first then think about what they say. That's why it's important for EVERY group or company or organization to police itself to prevent itself from disrepute by a one or a few idiots.

I will disagree with you about the use of "plants" to make a target group look bad. That's been done forever. We all know it's being done, but tons of people fall for this sort of thing every time its tried.

It's just like negative campaigning.....we hate it, but IT IS effective. Just another thing in the long lists of paradoxes associated with human behavior.

Your purposeful ignorance is just astounding.

This is not simply a case of One jerk through his or her actions bringing discredit to a group with a reasonable and legitimate purpose. THIS IS THE GROUP'S FOUNDER.

Now if the GROUP FOUNDER is in the front line OF HIS OWN RALLY with a sign containg STUPID MISSPELLED RACIAL INSULTS, then you have to conclude that this is part of the reason HIS GROUP exists.

The point is that Robertson has shown himself to be exactly who we all thought he was!

7 He would get a little brighter if instead of being on here or other forums 24/7 He did some studying before he opened his mouth. It would help him alot if he knew something more then how to spell.
He Just might not look like such a fool.

Are you retarded or what? When the tax cut ends the marginal bottom tax bracket goes from 10% of taxable income to 15% of taxable income......

That means if a person is paying $2000/year in federal income tax they now will be paying $3000/year in federal income tax.........or $83/month MORE!!!! A heck of a lot of money is you're a low income worker.

Guys like you are so damned worried about what the other guy is paying but you're too damned stupid to figure out your pocket is being picked by the same guys who are jacking you on the "rich".

You're obviously the victim of a public school education.....learn simple grade school mathematics and stop listening to political BS artists.

.....and yes, I forgot more than you know. Your posts are damning evidence of that.

So who got any money from Obama's stimulus. NOBODY!

Who's taxes are going to be lower. Nobody.

Obama is fucking liberals up the ass and they like it. The guy is a naive, inexperienced clown and it shows.

Look for an ass kicking of a lifetime this Novermber.

The Democrats will have their asses handed to them. FACT!

Remember Obama saying that the healthcare bill would be on C-SPAN and posted on the internet. The guy is a fucking LIAR!

Transparency my ass and we're all sick of that word nuanced. We never used that word before teh Magic Negro came into office.

It means that when Obama says something, each liberal will give their own opinion to what the Messiah loser is saying. What bullshit.

The naive fool is coddling Muslim terrorists. Has Obama's apologies done anyting for our country?

No, they see this as weakness and so do I.

YOU SUCK OBAMA!

How's that global warming coming and that January closing of Gitmo you dumbass fool.

Why do liberals get their panties in a bunch if someone has a typo.

Who cares? It's about the content. Are we all getting paid or graded on this? No, so who cares?

Maybe you should give Obama speaking lessons for all his stuttering and stammering. I laugh my ass of when Obama does that, Letterman too.

Your content deserves an F. Since when is it acceptable to use the "f" word on these pages? It just exposes you for the unsophisticated nutjob that we all know you are.

Awwwe, Ive made the little guy mad. Nice try Pansy!

The 10% tax bracket is capped (for 2009) at 16,700 for married, 8,500 for single. There is NO WAY POSSIBLE for anyone in that bracket to pay $2000. In fact when you add in tax credits, they will pay NOTHING whenther their bracket is 10% or 15%. The LARGEST icrease they could possibly see is $46 for single, and $83 for married filing jointly. And then they get it back in tax credits. You really are bad at this debating stuff!

DO your homework before calling people retarded little guy!

Now lets see if you are bright enough to follow, Under obama the MIDDLE TAX BRACKETS ARE LOWERED while the top tax brackets get an increase. This isnt rocket science son! If you mke less than $250k, you get a TAX CUT in 2010!
