TeaParty.org Founder Misspells His Own Hate


TeaParty.org, one of the self-proclaimed leaders of the vocal and active conservative Tea Party movement, was founded by a man named Dale Robertson. Robertson lays claim to the original idea for staging Tea Parties, one that was later taken up by much more widely known advocates like Glenn Beck. This week Robertson is getting flak for a photograph of him from back in February in Houston that has just turned up, where he’s carrying a sign that reads: “Congress = Slaveowner, Taxpayer = Niggar.” We don’t even know how to react to that, other than to say sic, and, well, sick.
