Houston Teabagger Depicts Obama as a Pimp in Fundraising Email
January 28, 2010
(ChattahBox)—-Since the surprising victory of teapartier-backed Republican Scott Brown in the Massachusetts special election to fill the late Ted Kennedy’s U.S. Senate seat; the conventional wisdom among media pundits is that the tea party movement can no longer be ignored. And the teapartiers themselves are scolding the mainstream media for unfairly portraying their movement, as made up of racist and bigoted fringe groups. But here’s the thing; many of the tea party members behave like extreme right-wing racists and bigots. A recent case in point, is Dale Robertson, founder of the Houston-based TeaParty.org. You may remember Dale and his problem with spelling the N-word, as he was photographed holding a sign at a tea party event comparing a taxpayer to a “niggar.”
Now, ole Dale is at it again, as he stirs up some good old fashioned racism in a recent fund-raising email, which depicts President Obama as a stereotypical black pimp. Obama’s image is photoshopped with a pencil-thin mustache, wearing an oversized zebra-striped fedora trimmed with white fur, a garish purple band and a black feather. Stay classy Dale.
The offensive email, obtained by Talking Points Memo is entitled, “Obama Pimping Obama-Care, One Last Time!”
The fundraising appeal announces that health care reform is still in danger of being passed by Democrats, despite the recent senate win of Scott Brown in Massachusetts. The email asks members to send anti-healthcare reform faxes to Congress, and to send cash donations to TeaParty.org.
The email also contains a rallying call from Dale Robertson: “I am greatly encouraged with the progress of the Tea Party, but our work has just begun!”
