    Tea Party ‘founder’: Palin, Gingrich a ‘joke’ | Raw Story

    More after the jump. He's pissed, and I can't blame him. Though it is a reminder that the tea party was first a Libertarian movement before becoming what it is today.

    The libertarians sold out or were co-opted?
    The results of mergers often suck big time for the rank and fiile involved.

    From outside, I think it is a short-lived hype.
    Tea-Party is also a historical legend. Currently that legend is being instrumentalized, its remembrance in its original context being corrupted.
    Some things you let better untouched. One day the hype will be gone, and what will be left is, that a founding-legend of USA was mixed with gay, anti-immigrant issues of today.

    If important events in the history of my country would be instrumentalized by interest groups in today's world, this would really disturb me.

    TEA PARTY, KNOW NOTHING PARTY, these sorts of American movements feed on frustration, anger and fear.

    They also get co-opted by the parties, as we have seen happen to the formerly populist movement calling itself the TEA PARTY movement.

    What is it now?

    It's a Republicans movement.

    I'm more than willing to be 90% of the TP folks will vote R.

    Given that both parties brought us this economy, that means that these people end up as nothing but tools to the duelopoly.

    It's pretty funny to see the Fear and Hate for the Tea Party from our fellow Liberal citizens.

    Just what the hell are they afraid of? What are the People in the Tea party going to do to them, after all the Tea Party is AGAINST the GUBERMENT.

    makes you wonder:eusa_whistle:

    You "don't blame him?"

    You don't give a rat's ass about the viability of the Tea Party.

    Do Libertarians believe in interfering in the private property rights of others, in the event they turn out to want to build a mosque?

    Do they believe in interfering in the marriage rights of others, in the event they turn out to be gay?

    Do they weep and plot to bring christian prayers back to public schools?

    Hummm.....I'm thinking that's a big old "no".......

    The Tea Party does not exist to breathe life into the fringe Libertarian movement.
