Alan Colmes Busts Dale Robertson on Racist Photo

It’s true. The liberal radio host (formerly of “Hannity and”) posts a Jan. 7 radio interview with Dale Robertson in which the Tea Party activist defended his use of the slogan “taxpayer = niggar” on a sign. (The interview was conducted three days after I posted a photo of the sign.)

COLMES: What do you mean by the word “NIGGAR?” What is that?

ROBERTSON: I don’t know, what does it mean to you?

COLMES: That’s what?

ROBERTSON: What does it mean to you?

COLMES: I don’t know, I didn’t write it. I’ve never seen that word before. What’s NIGGAR?

ROBERTSON: Well, I just don’t agree with what Congress is doing to the American people.

COLMES: But why that word?

ROBERTSON: Really the proper word is “slave.”

COLMES: You said “Congress is the slaveowner, taxpayer is the NIGGAR.”

ROBERTSON: Well, Ron Dellums actually coined that word.

It looks increasingly like Robertson wasted Tommy Christopher’s time by claiming, out of the blue, that the photo was forged.

Isn't this where Breitbart offers $10000 to anyone who can 'prove' the photo is genuine, then refuses to acknowledge any & all verification?

Dave, why are folks always trying to diss you? Like you don't have shit to back up what you say – e.g., this teabagger and the firebagger, Jane Hamster! Don't they know you're a real journalist, that's why you're goin' to The Washington Post! Headin' for the big times, you registered republican you!
