There is one difference between then and now that could alter that trajectory. The Tea Party was driven largely by hostility to former President Obama.

Yes. It was driven "largely" by hostility to former President Obama. Largely by that. As in, about 55 percent of the "movement" was hostile to President Obama. The other 45 percent were hostile to the fact that a Black man was the president of the United States.

No, that's unfair. It was probably only about 40 percent who made up that latter group. Of the remaining five percent, four percent were Republican shills being financed by the Koch brothers to ensure that the Tea Party functioned in theory as a "grassroots arm" of the Republican Party but in reality as their their setpiece. The last sliver were Fox News executives and on-air personalities.

The TEA Party DID set a precedent, that you could create a movement, wholecloth, from a few advertisements on Fox News. And the concept was Sofa King popular with grifters, that Donnie couldn't help himself but get in there, and put a whole new grifty spin to it.

Not that the TEA Party bullsh*t didn't have fantastic grift opportunities, between Saint Sarah and her Fabulous Warehoused Book Tour, to Hannity's Freedom Concerts with a 95% service fee, and another 90% surcharge on the remainder for processing the disbursement of funds to selected 'families' of service members who might have gotten near a overseas posting.

But everyone knew that. They just keep shifting the chairs around, and it's the same grifters who keep tucking dollar bills from the pockets of the gullible and weak minded. At least when it was just free range grifters the money went to trips to Vegas and into the thongs of working girls and used car salesmen. The current model just cuts out the little guys from the table, and the competition for shucking rubes is getting brutal.

The Republican party learned a long time ago that voters don't really want to give everything to the wealthy.
Every decade they come up with a new "Contract with America" type thing to act like they are turning towards the voters.
Meanwhile Democrats continue with "There is nothing we can do " and "Wall Street knows what's best for you".

That is the reason Republicans stay strong.

They share the same 30% of the country that lost it's damn mind at a black guy being president and a lot of the same unfounded bullshiat about birth certificates and claiming Obama was a secret muslim became the break from reality that moved onto qanon idiocy.

Mostly though we weren't as a society ready for instant global communication that would feed off of people's fears and desire for validation of whatever was in their heads.

Wrong.... Dead farking wrong. Lazy ass article.

Most of the Tea Partiers were people in their 50's and 70's. The old Neo-cons who would show up at Ws rally with Purple Hearts on their band-aids, who were funded by Koch and large Republican donors. Who then appointed a GOP agent to run things who spent them dry, took any remaining cash that wasn't donated to GOP donors and went home leaving MANY, MANY Tea party organizations on the hook for hundreds of thousands of dollars. They were bilked, and played for the suckers they always were. They are now in their 60's-80's.

MAGA plays to a MUCH younger, angrier crowd, 30's-50's. Guys and gals who saw their entire generation return from Iraq and Afghanistan in wheel chairs and missing limbs while their jobs evaporated and homes foreclosed on. They blame democrats, rightly so for the jobs, they blame democrats rightly so for failing to change Washington and the politics in this country. They see their resources as threatened by globalist corporatocracy, that took their jobs to Mexico and China, they are racist and xenophobic out of fear of losing the resources they feel they have earned and kept by working hard and grinding out for a pay check. This is why racism has become not only a GOP party plank, it has become acceptable in Republican circles to blame the minorities coming to steal their hoarded goods for the coming collapse of a government incapable of running and meeting demands to a climate crisis that a majority of them also believe in. But also one that keeps trying to take their wealth and resources to give to the minorities who they feel are undeserving. That root of racism that has run deep in this country is inflamed like an abscessed tooth. Because the right wing fans the flames to keep their base engaged and outraged and angry.

This isn't just an astroturfed grass roots thing. They feel empowered by Trump. They feel justified by Trump for being racist and letting them blame minorities. Look at the number of small Donations Trumps PAC has gotten. That's money collected from true believers by hook or by crook. The old guard GOP would have gotten rid of Trump and the Trumpers in congress long before the election result challenges looked like egg on their face. They are no longer in control of the monster they created. All they can do is feed it enough blood and hope it doesn't come for them.

I'm thinking more like 60% hostile to a Black President, of which less than half would even bother to try to cover up their racism by rationalizing that it wasn't about his race but HIM, personally, if you know what I mean

Back when the tea party was a big deal, there were a group of guys in my town (never saw any women) that were all in. 100%, head first, that's all I can talk about all in. They would meet at the community room at the library. My wife and I would "just happen" to be at the library shortly before their meeting would start. And let me tell you it was way past awesome and into the realm of incredibly awesome. They would come in wearing their 3 corner hats and yes with tea bags dangling. A lot of the hats were home made out of cheap walmart cowboy hats glued and stapled to make like a 3 corner hat. Some would come in wearing shorts but with real high white socks. And carrying flags on poles. American and rebel flags. After their meeting would start we could hear the pledge of allegiance then they would be singing the star bangled banner and other "patriotic" songs.
I really really wish I had some photos.

mudesi: Teabaggers.  They're called teabaggers.  That's what they called themselves when they first started this bullshiat and that's what they shall forever be.

Fark the media for sanitizing it after they realized the sexual double entendre.

mudesi's absolutely right, but it's even worse than that. They knew what it meant! They chose it for that very reason! I last posted about this (with considerable receipts) a little over a year ago. As I said then, yes, they bloody well did too call themselves "Teabaggers" (or, more properly, "Operation Teabag" for the movement but "Teabaggers" to refer to the members) on the very day of their founding. And yes, they knew what the term meant and chose it for that very reason! Vulgar innnuendo and all.

Prove it, you say? Okay. The following is from something I've posted several times before on Fark and elsewhere over the years:

Please stop calling them the Tea Party. They are not entitled to that name. It was already taken when their immediate founder called for their formation on Wall Street on February 19, 2009, and when they were actually formed as a "grassroots" movement on FreeRepublic on February 20. That name had been taken for years before then.

Ron Paul's supporters (no, I'm not one) were doing Tea Party reenactments and using that name to describe themselves in 2007, and even in 1987 when he ran for President the first time. While they, too, fundamentally misunderstand the nature of the real historical Boston Tea Party (as in 180° diametric opposite of the real history as recorded by actual participants thereof), they are the first group to call themselves that in modern times, and so are the only ones entitled to the name.

We need something else to call them. But what? Fortunately, their own founders provided the perfect name.

You've seen this famous David Weigel photo of the Teabaggers holding their infamous sign at the first Teabagger protest on February 27, 2009, right?
Fark user imageView Full Size
Everyone focuses on the large writing in big bold RED and BLACK block lettering, but look at the much smaller handwriting in Green ink in the lower right corner of not only that sign, but all the signs held by that group of protestors.

One week prior to that protest, the very same people in that photo started and posted in this Freeper thread, where they not only invented the term (and started the Tea Party movement, right in that very thread!), but did so knowing full well what it meant! Even after being repeatedly warned by their own as to its sexually charged slang slur meaning (beginning with the comment that was the very first one in that thread, the second post overall therein, less than 1½ minutes after it started!), they decided to use it because of that meaning thinking that it would be applied to their enemies instead of themselves! (While it doesn't say much about the use of the term, this thread from five days later verifies their plans regarding that protest scheduled for that very weekend.)

Seriously. Read that first-linked Freeper thread (the one I boldfaced in the previous paragraph) and see for yourself that they really did know full well what the term meant a week to the day before that first-ever Teabagger protest with that infamous sign. Marvel at the "Barney Frank" and "69%" jokes. Gawk at the comments with animated .GIFs and even embedded YouTube videos of emojis and video games characters actually performing the teabagging act. There was a photo no longer visible showing two Asian guys in a motorboat canoe, with one wearing tighty-whities and his rear end aimed straight at the camera as he was starting the motor. And more. Yes, they absolutely, positively did know exactly what it meant. That's why they chose it!

All this was months before Rachel Maddow or Anderson Cooper first used the term against them! Also before Maddow or Anderson or anyone else in the "liberal" media called them that, Fox News used the term congratulating them!
Fark user imageView Full Size

Here's what They of the Short Memory had to say about Maddow's use thereof, only about 1½ months after the first linked thread in the above post.
Not a full year ― only about 10¼ months ― from the original thread, and lo, they're incensed about NPR's use of it.
Before that month is out, they're even more upset about the AP using it.

Oh, one more thing about that photo using that explicit language: note that these fine upstanding morally upright evangelical Christian citizens had an impressionable teenaged boy holding that particular sign!

After I posted this info on another Fark thread years ago, Farker Sgt Otter pointed this out:
Then Andrew Breitbart himself tried to "reclaim" the Teabagger label as a badge of honor. Of course, when people were still snickering, Breitbart.com starting screeching about how those awful liberals were using a homophobic slur against the Tea Party, just a few months later.

I'm saying there is enough blame to go around for either side. This is their justification for fully embracing the racist roots and institute fascism they have embraced, that has been fanned by republicans to get out the votes, to invite the white supremacist theories, and basis of their policies exacerbated by Liberal policies until it's a raging fire it is now.

If you can't accept Democrats responsibility, and only want to blame republicans, that says more about your tribal mentality than your application of critical thinking. If you refuse to say these specific policies enacted and signed in to law by a democratic president have harmed Americans for the corporate donor beneficiaries of these policies, there's nothing more I can tell you.

You don't get to say republicans are party before country, while adopting the same position.

Yet you only blamed one side for the economic problems you brought up.  You only ever bring up one side in your complaints.  That's why this current act isn't fooling anyone: it's not new, or interesting, it's just the same old tired dance we've seen before.  It was wrong then, and it's still wrong now.

Post an article about the help republicans have given to this country and I'll make a list a mile long about everything they have done to not only actively harm this country, but how they have undermined the values this country was founded on and any minuscule of help and advancement republicans have done for this country has a lot to answer for.
