Sound the alarm!

"A Political firestorm is inevitable as the Tea Party is quietly targeted for capture!" Tea Party leader Dale Robertson warned in a statement on his site on Thursday.

Robertson cautioned Tea Partiers to be wary, because Sarah Palin, headliner of the recent National Tea Party Convention, represents a threat "to the heart of the Tea Party:"

"I am sending an alarm to the Tea Party membership! Be alert to turncoats and deceivers being herded into the Tea Party by usurpers from the weakened Republican Party for the sole purpose of capturing our populist movement," Robertson said.

  • More from Robertson's letter, which is posted on his Tea Party site:

    "Sarah Palin's well delivered speech and her attractive demeanor is little more than a veneer for her less attractive political philosophy. She seems more like a duck out of water among true Conservative Constitutionalists. Palin demonstrates her NeoCon flippant viewpoint and her naivete as she seems envious of the swelled numbers of Patriots pledging their allegiance, to of all things, AMERICA and not to a kool-aid ridden political dinosaur.

    Sarah Palin is not dense or erroneous in her view of the Tea Party, just the opposite. She represents a growing insider's attack to the heart of the Tea Party. Very much like a wolf in sheep's clothing entering in at the gate as an ally, but for all intents and purposes there to seize and capture, not only one or two stray sheep, but the whole flock!"

  • As Talking Points Memo notes, Robertson's disenchantment with the GOP seems to be a rather recent development. Only last month, he complained to a reporter that his attempts to contact the RNC to discuss cooperative action were ignored.

    Robertson also isn't the first person to point out the Tea Party's vulnerability to hijacking. Manyexpressed outrage at the concept of this month's for-profit, corporate-sponsored National Tea Party Convention in Nashville where Sarah Palin delivered a keynote speech.

  • Trippy--

    As usual, your posts come across as condescending! "You Teaparty people?!" Not exactly the way you go about generating a serious question that you want serious answers from!

    And by the way...I don't subscribe to the nonsensical ramblings of ONE person! Dale Robertson, does NOT speak for me!

    Let me guess, you go this from DailyKos, or similar "high brow" liberal website, right?! LOL

  • LoriKeet, Would you have preferred she said You TeaPart(iers)? No matter what you all are referred to as a whole you freak out. You dont like the terms Neo-Conservative, Right wingers, etc. And are you claiming to be a Tea Partier now?

  • I'm no teapartier but am fascinated with Sarah Palin as she seems to be lazy, disinterested and uneducated. How did she ever find herself in this position? I'll bet she pinches herself all day long. The sad side is maybe she has to sell herself in order to support her family. Maybe her husband is that worthless. She wouldn't be the first wife and mom to have to do so. I don't think she's a threat to anybody. She's more like a cardboard cutout with a shrill voice.
