Racist Tea Party Leader Can’t Spell the N-Word

January 4, 2010

(ChattahBox)—-It comes as no surprise to see tea party members carrying offensive, bigoted or racist signs. During the 9/12 DC march there was plenty of bigotry, racial animus and problems with spelling and grammar. And since the teapartiers starting crashing lawmakers’ town hall meetings we have witnessed ugliness, violence and a disturbing mob mentality. As the tea party movement funded and backed, by various astroturf corporate lobbying groups, such as Dick Armey’s Freedom Works, Our Country Deserves Better PAC and Americans for Prosperity, seeks to become more politically mainstream, members are trying to scrub their racist backgrounds. But Dale Robertson, a Tea Party activist who runs TeaParty.org can’t hide from his racism and his problems with the English language. Robertson misspelled the N-word on a sign he carried at a Houston tea party rally.

According to the Washington Independent, the photo of Robertson and his misspelled N-word sign turned up, after the ResistNet listserv promoted “Liberty Concerts” sponsored by Robertson’s group TeaParty.org. He carried the sign reading, “Congress = Slaveowner, Taxpayer = Niggar” at a tea party rally held in Houston on Feb. 27, 2009.

And apparently, Robertson was booted from the Houston rally along with his offensive sign.

    Is it me or is it ironic that this article talks about the bad spelling of Tea Party protesters and yet in the last paragraph it says:
    “ResistNet listerv promoted Liberty Concerts”
    What is a “listerv”?

    According tothe Oxford English Dictionary, the ignorant racist may have a correct variation of the spelling on his sign.

    OED definition:

    “Nigger (‘nIg∂(r)), Also niggar. [Alteration of NEGER. Cf. Also NIGER and NIGRE.]

    1. a. A Negro. (Colloq. And usu. contemptuous.) Except in Black English vernacular, where it remains common, now virtually restricted to contexts of deliberate and contemptuous ethnic abuse. b. Loosely or incorrectly applied to members of other dark-skinned races. c. to work like a nigger, to work exceptionally hard. orig. U.S.”

    Shame on the Washington Independant for not using a quality dictionary when vetting stories about the use of hateful words on paper placards!

    Strange times. The endemic hatred and intolerance in the American populance has begun to raise its head on every corner. This so called “Christian” nation simply sublimnated its racism in the 1960’s and became most clever at malice.

    The Tea Parties of the times are criminal in nature and should be vigorously opposed.

    I hate to say this but this idot holding this sign lives in Stafford, Texas and I live in Stafford, Texas. As a Black 50 year old female having lived in this area for the past 30 years I have to say only recently have I begun to see signs of racism. I guess the people have been racist the entire time however, they were undercover. Apparently this Tea Party business has given these people the “balls” to come out in the open. I hope they don’t push it too far because Black people will only take so much before things will get heated up. I am willing to bet my next paycheck this guy would not take this sign to Martin Luther King Dr. just down the road in southeast Houston, Texas.

    One, the sign compared Congress to slaveowners and taxpayers to slaves. Calling them “niggar” was definitely stupid and offensive, but given the actual message of the sign it’s fairly up in the air as to whether the sign was actually inciting hatred towards or being derogatory of black people. My father used to use the word nigger but in his lexicon it basically meant “stupid, ghetto-attitude, low-class” and he applied it pretty equally to the stupid and low-class people he met regardless of the color of their skin. PC? Heck, no. Foolish? Definitely. But racist? Hardly.

    Finally, the fact that by your own report, the rest of the tea partiers booted him out of the protest should adequately prove that whether the message was intended to be derogatory or not, the majority of the crowd was not behind it.
