The Washington Times has apparently decided that Dale Robertson is a credible spokesman for the Tea Party movement. The cynic in me hopes, for the Times‘ sake, that they are merely using Robertson as a scourge on the legitimate Tea Partiers.
The Times could have gotten some credit for reaching out to the growing Tea Party movement, if only the paper had done its research. Or any research. Or if one of the grizzled pencils toiling diligently in the layers of scrupulous fact-checkers and editing-editors-who-edit had typed “Dale Robertson Tea Party” into a search box somewhere.
Because you see, the fatuous Dale Robertson is a well-known opportunity fraud, a fellow who likes to exaggerate his own accomplishments. In that he often fails, not because his statements are false, but more typically because they are vacuous. The guy thinks he’s smarter than he is.
He’s also a burgeoning racialist who has been asked not be involved with the Tea Party movement. Over and over again. We thought he had the idea.
And yet, who can deny that Mr. Robertson is the “founder” of teaparty.org? Pardon my underwhelmed response. To be “founder” of a URL means one registered the name. That has nothing at all to do with protesting governmental expansion, and everything to do with being a domain squatter and opportunity fraud.
The Tea Party movement began in February, 2009 in response to the bank bailouts, car maker takeovers, and most especially the Porkulus. It may actually have been developing even before the 2008 elections, but it got its name from Rick Santelli’s famed rant on CNBC, .The name may have been used prior to that. If Robertson was the first, he was doing it all alone. That’s not a movement, that’s a random act of futility.
The Tea Party movement also recognizes no founder, no leader. Each local chapter or group (and there is not even a regular term for them, other than “Tea Party”) has one or more leaders, usually the people who decided to do something. And it has come to be understood in the movement that we want it this way.
But Mr. Robertson holds himself out as the founder and leader of the movement.
And that is ironically the surest way to tell Mr. Robertson is a fake, and the Washington Times too credulous by half.
