No longer "taxed enough already," now it's "I hate Mexicans" and "I hate Muslims."

Next phase is "Kill Mexicans and Muslims "

There are Tea Party types infiltrated into all levels of government now. There's really no need for a so called grass roots movement anymore.

It was never about libertarianism. It was always about hate for Obama and anyone with a slightly brown complexion. They hated socialism because Fox News told them Obama was a socialist, even if he was far from it.

Oh man. If for some reason it is Harris, they'll lose their god damn minds. Deficits will matter, lies and decorum will matter. It'll be a shiatshow of epic proportions. At least until the next one.

(My vote is for Warren no matter how much they biatch about it. But would vote for Harris in the general if she makes it there, which is unlikely. This country is again on the precipice of finally electing a female president but I doubt that there are enough ready for a non-white woman as prez just yet)

Rally speakers yesterday made no mention of the blooming national debt under the Trump administration, massive spending bills passed by GOP-controlled Congressional bodies, or the fact that the Trump administration has offered huge subsidies to American farmers.

I thought their whole reason for being was to combat excessive spending and debt.  Have the Tea Party Patriots lied to me?

The TeaDerpers don't have that blah man to fuel their stupid anymore, so they have no idea what to do.
Proof that all this bullshattery was never really about taxes... same as their whining about the national deficit and debt. So long as there's the right white male republican in the oval office they DGAF, even when that white republican is set to push the deficit past $1 TRILLION (with a T) dollars this year, and whose total budget deficits could be almost DOUBLE that of his blah predecessor.

Watch what happens when a D takes over... especially if it's a female D or a person of color. The moron patrol will be lining up in their hoverrounds again.

One trillion dollars = $1,000,000,000,000.00, or one thousand billion.

In other news, abolitionist groups don't get many attendees at their rallies in 2019, either.

Point I'm going for: When you've accomplished all of your goals it kind of puts a damper on further activism.

The Tea Party won. We have Trump.

Yeah that sweet Koch money will start to flow again and they will want taxes cut and the deficit paid! Because you can fix the budget like a household budget, all social programs cut and an increase in military spending.

The Tea Party has become irrelevant.  These people who were the fringe, are now mainstream Republicans.

"We're not going anywhere. We're here to tell the President of the United States, 'Stand strong, keep on the fight, [and] we back you, because you stand between us and them,'" Mark Levin, a prominent conservative political commentator and the headline rally speaker, said during his speech.

i love tthat this assclown doesn't mention that this president's pet project was to rock the deficit in order to benefit a minority of the population. If I ever hear one of you f*ckgadgets tell me about fiscal responsibility again, I'm bringing out my disturbingly large collection of pitchforks

They claimed TEA stood for Taxed Enough Already.  When it was pointed out we were in an era of very low taxation, they backpedaled to saying they were concerned about spending.  Now with Trump spending like a coked-up Lindsay Lohan, it's generic COMMUNISM! SOCIALISM! BROWN PEOPLE!  MILLENIALS!

Good to hear that this sect of the Fascist Party is on the out.


Funny thing is there was never really a Tea Party, the politicians that were voted in were all Republicans that had voted to increase the National Deficit. These people were so gullible and desperate for a Party to go to only to find out there was no party.
 
2019-09-21 07:22:33 AM  
The Tea Party accomplished its mission:  rebrand and radicalize the Republican Party after they trashed their image and the country during the Dubya era.

Dave The Slushy: It was never about libertarianism. It was always about hate for Obama and anyone with a slightly brown complexion. They hated socialism because Fox News told them Obama was a socialist, even if he was far from it.


It was also about the GOP wanting revenge on Bill Clinton for beating Reagan's successor. Since they couldn't take out Hillary, Obama was next. It didn't hurt that it was an opportunity to tell racists that Obama was proof that their country was being taken away.

Every tea party leader embezzled a shiat load of donated money. Now that the black guy won and the racist is President, people would rather buy maga hats than donate to pretend they are taxed enough already.

That lack of mind set always makes me laugh. If you are worried about participation trophies, then here is an idea....TALK TO YOUR F'ING KIDS ABOUT IT! No, it's just easier to biatch about it.

Black guy ain't president anymore, and current president can shiat on the constitution all he wants and they couldn't care less. I think that about sums it up. Their movement was never about what they claimed it to be.

I would normally question a person who spent their limited funds on firearms over something with a more profitable return.
However that assumes living in a civilized society, which I am starting to doubt the US can be considered anymore sadly. Your choice in investment may end up being smarter than mine.

Hmmmm. It's almost as though the whole "Tea Party" was a bullshiat AstroTurf GOP GOTV campaign consisting of thinly veiled racism and a heaping dose of disingenuous concern for the deficit to keep Republicans in the fold following the predictable results of 8 years of Republicans running the show.
