Lefty Blogger Uses Photo Of Sarah Palin Effigy Being Hanged As Example Of Right-Wing Hate

How does she he! manage to do that, you ask? By using a wide shot, and saying that it’s Nancy Pelosi:

Conservatives remember very well that the hanging Sarah Palin effigy was done as a Halloween prank during the ’08 election as the media reluctantly cluck clucked, Sarah Palin effigy: a Halloween trick gone too far? Ya think?

He also uses pictures of the Fred Phelps clan (Democrats),

and a few semi-over the line tea party signs as examples of right wing hate. Weak tea compared to Bush era protest signs.

The koolaid must be strong for this one.

The name of his blog, ironically enough is The Conservative Lie. You can go tell him hey, but don’t count on your comment appearing. Mine didn’t.

UPDATE:

The Conservative Lie blog has been shamed into taking the pic down, citing, “a mistake”.

Yes, it’s understandable in this current right-wing Kristallnacht we’re living through, to mistake a  a very real Palin effigy, for a non-existent, completely made-up Pelosi one. It happens!

UPDATE II:

It looks like our hero, who’s working so feverishly to expose conservative hate has replaced the bogus Palin pic with yet another bogus pic. Remember this sweetheart?

The Tea Party movement in Houston has been on to “tea party founder” Dale Robertson since February of last year. Pajama’s Media reported:

He has been described as a fake, a con artist, and worse by frustrated tea party groups across the land. Houston’s, in particular, is so upset at being associated with the man that they sent out the following press release:

1. He is NOT a member of our Leadership team.

2. He owns a website with which we have never been affiliated.

3. He has never been a part of organizing any of the Tea Party rallies in the Houston area, or any other area that we can find.

4. We addressed some issues involving him back in April. Here it is on our website, where Mr. Robertson himself comments: http://houstontps.org/?p=318

5. We do not choose to associate with people that use his type of disgusting language.

Robertson and his publicist encourage the MSM to consider it a mere squabble between various factions involved in the tea party movement. But quick research on the internet shows that no one in the actual tea party movement wants anything to do with the man.

Needless to say, left-wing sites have been repeatedly drawing attention to him as an example of racism in the tea party.

From the post linked to above:

Something Fishy

Friday, April 17, 2009

One Dale Robertson has purchased DBA names for, among other things, Houston Tea Party, Texas Tea Party, Houston, TX Tea Party, and on and on.  But what really interests me is the next page:

He’s also purchased Houston 912 Project, The 912 Project, We Surround You Houston, We Surround Them Houston, and on and on.

A pattern begins to emerge, one of a man bent on either controlling the names available for current movements in Harris County, or on extorting money from the leaders of these grassroots movements.  Apparently we irritated him when we registered the name Houston Tea Party SOCIETY, because he didn’t think to get that one.  I hear he is offering to sell the rights to the names to leaders of these movements.So, purportedly a self-described member of a movement that’s against sleazy opportunistic politicians is presenting himself as a sleazy opportunistic non-politician?

Personally, I think that’s a great capitalist idea, and I wish him luck with that.

Dang that koolaid must taste good!

UPDATE:

More fishiness:

The Mudville Gazette is on the case of  the lone gunmen. Who are these miscreants?

The photographer of the offending sign above, Greyhawk was able to discover, is a man named Cameron Brenchley:

Cameron isn’t as mysterious as the subjects of his photos. A quick Google search reveals he’s a New Media Specialist for the U.S. House of Representatives, meaning that – among other things – he conducts blog outreach on behalf of the good folks who were inside the Capitol debating that bill. That’s excellent news – even though he declared via his Twitter Feed that a different sign was the “Best tea-bag sign of day,” any employee of the House of Representatives (and former US Air Force Staff Sergeant) will certainly recognize their responsibility to expose (and neutralize) the threat conveyed in those signs beyond the blogosphere – so that’s no doubt been taken care of.

The striped shirt guy does bare a minor resemblance to Dale Robertson, but I’ve decided upon closer inspection that they’re not the same guy. Commenters at the Mudville Gazette noted a “union thug” look to the guys. Whomever they are, their sign constitutes a threat, and they should be persona non gratae at any tea party.

Now that conservatives have started using the same tactics that the libs have used for decades, the libs are terrified.

    FRC: Deranged Video Threats Part of a “Clear Pattern of Intimidation” From Gay Activists
    Submitted by Kyle on March 31, 2010 – 8:31am
    Earlier this week, a man named Norman Leboon was arrested for posting a video threatening to kill Rep. Eric Cantor and it was soon revealed that Leboon had made some 2,000 videos that contained pseudo-religious incantations with random warnings and threats, including videos that targeted President Obama, Vice President Biden, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid as well as threats against judges, David Duke, and even against the movie “Babe.”

    So it seems pretty clear to everyone that Leboon’s myriad of threats were most likely driven by some sort of mental illness … everyone, that is, except the Family Research Council which claims that Leboon’s threat against Cantor is part of a “clear pattern of intimidation that comes from many homosexual activists”:

    1. The diff betwn me & Faux News – I don’t put the word “News” in the title. If they changed the name to Fox Propaganda I’d have no problem.
    2. Registering as a democrat doesn’t make you liberal. Sure Phelps is a dem, but he’s another righty. Libs support gay rights. Same with robinson, he may not be a legitimate Tea bagger, buy he’s a righty too. BTW, nobody but you guys thinks the pic of robinson is a fraud. Kick em out as fast as you can, they keep showing up at your rallies for some reason. Could it be because you guys favor some of the same things?
    3. My post wasn’t about Tea Party specificaly. It’s about the violent rhetoric coming from the right establishment. You showing a few pics of nudist does not equal the same thing. Now, if you can show me a a legitimate news channel, talk radio host with an audience of more than 2 spouting liberal hate, you might have a point.
    4. You guys sure did take this personally. I wonder why that is. Methinks the Teabaggers doth protest too much.
    5. There ARE hundreds of examples of what I’m talking about. Of course they aren’t all from Tea Party groups. You obviously didn’t read the post, or you have problems with reading comprehension. Besides, don’t you think my post is big enough already? Is there something wrong with your own search engines? Does it only work for right wing nutso stuff?

    Sure Phelps is a dem, but he’s another righty

    Really? Wasn’t the left generally against the Iraq War? Aren’t they against war in general…just like the Phelps clan?
    What evidence do you have to support your claim that they’re “righty”? Their disgusting homophobia? The worst gay bashing I’ve ever seen comes from the left. You might ask Andrew Breitbart about that.

    Yup – Leboon is a loon. No question. I wouldn’t normally waste any time talking about his political affiliation. But you haven’t been so discriminating in your ugly smears of the Right, so piss off. He’s yours. As is Major Hasan. And John Bedell.

    Registering as a democrat doesn’t make you liberal.

    It certainly doesn’t make you a conservative. And look how finely you split hairs now – all sorts of gradations when you talk about your side, but none for the Right. He had a choice to decide which political party best represented his own warped views. Phelps is anti-military, anti-Semitic, and anti-most other religions. Perfect for your side.

    Your attempt to pin him on the Right is exemplary of your dishonesty. Note that we don’t normally try to pin him on the Left – he’s just a disgusting aberration that will hopefully be sued into oblivion. But if you’re going to try to place him in one party or the other, he’s undeniably yours. So your photos are a fine example of Left-Wing hate.

    Libs support gay rights.

    As do many conservatives. Me, for instance. We have gays within the party, as well. It is a mistake to equate the fundamentalist Christian faction of the GOP voting bloc with the entire bloc: they are only a third of the party.

    BTW, nobody but you guys thinks the pic of robinson is a fraud.

    No one thinks the picture is a fraud. We think Robinson is a fraud. Robinson showed up with that sign and was asked to leave as a result. Somehow you’ve convoluted that into meaning that the people who asked him to leave supported racism.

    Could it be because you guys favor some of the same things?

    Of course it could. Smaller government, reduced government control in the marketplace, lower taxes, strong economy, preservation of individual rights, and specifically the prevention of the cost-increasing, industry-destroying, individual right-comprimising health care reform bill.

    Now, if you can show me a a legitimate news channel, talk radio host with an audience of more than 2 spouting liberal hate, you might have a point.

    MSNBC: Olbermann & Schultz. It’s just a matter of time for Ratigan and Maddow. Air America w/Randi Rhodes.

    4. You guys sure did take this personally. I wonder why that is. Methinks the Teabaggers doth protest too much.

    Use that term again, jerk, and I’ll start modding your comments. I know libs have built up an entire little mythos about how Tea Partiers brought that term upon themselves, but it’s nonsense. The bottom line is that Tea Partiers have been asking for libs to stop using it for over a year, but somehow libs feel that seeing on one sign at one rally preempts those requests.

    Of course they aren’t all from Tea Party groups.

    You told us the “new Right” was typified by Fox News, talk radio, and the Tea Party. Then you showed a bunch of signs, many of them not from the Right at all. But since conservatives don’t have many rallies, and Fox and talk radio don’t have rallies, we are left to assume that all of your signs have come from legitimate members of the Tea Parties at Tea Party protests.

    Which, of course, they don’t.

    But go ahead and clarify it for us – where did all the signs you posted come from?

    As I understand and use the term, a fundamentalist Christian is one who takes the Bible (and the Old Testament in particular) as the literal word of God, rather than as parables and metaphors. This is the group most likely to find homosexuality unacceptable without qualification, based on the reading of certain passages in the Bible.

    I see from a scan of Wikipedia that I should distinguish between “fundamentalists” and “literalists.” My bad.

    But if the larger point is that a preponderance of Christians are opposed to gay rights, then I’ll have to up my % to something like 50 or 60 of GOP voters. Perhaps this is why my suggestion that the GOP needs to come to an overt accommodation with homosexuals received an unexpectedly hostile reception at AoSHQ.
