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.
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!
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 FishyFriday, 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!
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.
A compare and contrast our right wing hate finding sleuth might want to check out totally ignore. After all, he won’t link to NSFW pics, so that pretty much excludes most left wing rallies.
