Meet David Roper. David is the guy who held up the “Thanks Tea-Tards” sign earlier today at an OFA rally. And he’s pretty damn proud of it:

According to him, the sign was just “a joke”:

Hilarious, right? But let him be clear: he’s not affiliated with OFA. He was just there for the party:

Be that as it may, he was nevertheless seen among OFA protesters, which, by lapdog media logic, makes him their spokesman. We’re still waiting for OFA to denounce him. We’re sure it’ll be any day now.



Roper deleted the tweet containing the photo of him making the sign. Unfortunately, he’s still responsible for being a bonehead. He owns that sign:

Meanwhile, OFA has reportedly responded. From Politico:

After reporters tweeted photos of a sign that read “Thanks Tea-Tards,” OFA headquarters in Chicago contacted Ruiz and asked her to have it removed, she said.

An OFA official said “we neither support nor approve of the inappropriate language in a sign… today.”

    Unbelievable … He’s proud to be so stupid.

    • Steve Fischer

      most liberals count stupidity as a virtue. they couldn’t be liberals otherwise.

      • QueenB ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        I don’t know if it is actual stupidity in all cases, but more an issue of cognitive dissonance. The cognitive dissonance required to be a democrat is why I am no longer a democrat.

          Best decision of your life.

        • Vincent Ardolino

          I also woke up from my Democratic coma in ’09. Thank God!

        PT Barnum was right!!There is a SUCKER born every minute!!

        And yet whoever made this meme doesn’t know how to spell “catastrophes”.

  • BlahBlah

    David is 12 and they made the sign in the Crayons n Finger Paints class in the after school program?

    • thedumbblonde

      It’s a woman painting the signs for him, so I can think of 2 scenarios:
      1-He lives with mommy and she’s painting for him (and likely still cutting the crusts off his sandwiches).
      2-It’s his wife/GF and she’s painting for him (and likely still cutting the crusts off his sandwiches}.

      • QueenB ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        BUT – that wife/GF is a strong, independent woman because she believes in the right to kill your child at any point up until birth (and maybe a bit after if she REALLY wants to go to the party), that is cutting his crusts off. You know, to be fair and whatnot.

  • Kentucky Conservatarian

    When you live a life of lies, its far too easy to hate those telling the truth. It appears that this person is one that lives a life of lies and hates the truth being told by the tea-party

    • Jeremy

      He said it well.

  • Steve__Jacobson

    So his contribution to the sign was holding it up?

    • ObamaFail

      Libs think doing something that takes zero effort is the peak of human perfection.

      • cajun_2

        And they think that the government’s purpose is to reward them for being “perfect”.

  • Mr_Wrestling_XIII

    Well, at least it isn’t something homophobic like “teabaggers” or “Kochsuckers”. It was just offensive to the mentally handicap… *sigh*

    • Terry

      With his other sign, he shows he’s insensitive to ppl with a psychological disorder. Or… he just hates tea.

  • QueenB ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Well David Roper, you may CLAIM to not be a part of OFA, but we all know if a sign shows up at a rally, the sign is SERIOUS and is 100% indicative of ALL people at the rally. As such, you have finally exposed (as if Obama’s Special Olympics “quip” wasn’t enough) ALL democrats, specifically and especially people who support Obama, as completely biased against people with mental deficiencies, to the point of hating them.

  • Right Wired ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Everyone who voted for Osama Bin Biden is part of OFA.

    • QueenB ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      And let us not forget, the first to confuse Obama and Osama was none other than good ‘ol Teddy Kennedy.

  • ObamaFail

    I wouldn’t be too thrilled if I was him. He’s exposing himself as a full-blown moron. Blaming the Tea Party on Harry Reid shutting down the government and blaming the Tea Party for Obama working with real terrorists faster than he will Republicans.

    • leftwingthom

      What “real terrorists”?

      • Vincent Ardolino

        I have been asking myself that same question now for several months. It sure does look like America is the terrorist now. At least the Obama regime is. Thats why he calls TeaParty people the terrorist. To him Constitutionally armed TeaParty people are the most dangerous threat his admin has ever faced

        • leftwingthom

          I don’t think he has a problem with the fact that they’re armed. Plenty of Democrats who voted for him are also armed. I don’t know where this myth that Obama tried to take away people’s personal firearms came from, he actually extended gun rights to include right to carry in private parks. What’s terroristic (probably not a word, but sue me) about the baggers is they may be armed with guns, but they’re not armed with the truth. In fact, they actively defy it. They take a radical, fringe ideology and use it to hijack the government for personal gain, as we just saw with this disaster that was the shutdown. That is what terrorists do. Thankfully, It was non-violent…..this time.

  • Arkuy The Great

    So, of course, Roper is representative of everyone on his side of the ideological divide. They are all intentionally insulting to those they disagree with, hold people with cognitive disabilities in contemptuous disregard and are absolutely indignant about there being any legitimate opinions besides their own.

    I.E. they are bunch of high-school sophomores. Right, got it.

  • Well Done

    He is today’s douche.

  • Jeff McCabe

    How much longer must we live under the tyranny of those demanding constitutional and fiscally sound government?!? Lead us away from that Dave!

  • stuckinIL4now

    Oh pullleeeezzz–that’s not even original. We all have been using terms like libtards and libturds around Twitchy and other sites for as long as I can remember. What rock has this Obumuh shilling OFA dumbas* been hiding under, and for how long?

  • Richo

    This is absolutely horrible. What did the cognitively challenged do to deserve to be lumped in with the lot of you tea party thugs?

    • cajun_2

      He actually knew how to get to DC?

  • rssllue

    His wit is so sharp that he might just be able to slice through warmed up butter with it. Barely.
