Tea Party Leader Dale Robertson Ousted for N-Word Sign

Tea Party Leader Dale Robertson Ousted for N-Word Sign

Posted: 01/06/2010 09:03 AM EST

A leader in the Obama-despising conservative organization known as the Tea Party was reportedly ousted after sporting a placard at a Houston rally last year that read: “Congress = Slaveowner, Taxpayer = Niggar.”

 Dale Robertson, was kicked out of the Tea Party Society after the controversy over the sign, Josh Parker, of the Houston branch of the Tea Party Society, told The Washington Independent newspaper.

Robertson, a Tea Party activist, operated TeaParty.org. A photo of him holding the “Niggar” sign at a Feb. 27, 2009 Tea Party in Houston surfaced recently.

 Many of the protestors who have turned out at the Tea Party rallies across the United States have carried racially insensitive signs. Some of them have portrayed President Obama as a Nazi, clown, bone-in-the-nose African native and murderer.

 Organizers of the Tea Party events have denied that racism has fueled their opposition to Obama and his policies.
