The Continuing Fallout Of The Murder Of The TEA Party

12 July 2019 @ 16:30

I have written here a good number of times about what I think motivates Donald Trump.

Over at The Other McCain, Long-Time Friend-In-The-Ether Smitty has posted some damn fine observations:

…both Obama’s election and the Tea Party uprising of 2009 are key to understanding 2016.

…Trump clearly knew how to win an election, even if he wasn’t burdened with the details of the Byzantine train wreck that is the U.S. government.

…Trump appears to have a “Forrest Gump” touch for failing upward, but his success is more due to pure savvy than deus ex machina.

In the Tea Party case, Trump was nowhere to be seen in 2009, yet I’m confident that the bulk of Tea Partiers voted Trump,,,,

I share Smitty’s confidence, as well.

However, I also believe that, if the TEA Party hadn’t been KIA’d by the Leftist [Obama and the Congress] national government and various Leftist-controlled State Governments while the GOP Establishment stood by in a Silence born of their Useful Idiocy, the 2016 Elections on the Republican side may have gone a different way.

The Destruction of the TEA Party organizations using the Massive Power of the Government, disillusioned many and robbed the conservatives and Classical Liberals who supported it of effective operative organs of Resistance of the Despots running the government.

When the history of these times is written — and if it is written by Honest Men — then the Murder of the TEA Party will loom large over that Narrative…for it’s consequences are, it seems, Grave for the future of Freedom And Ordered Liberty.

    The Tea Party was murdered by the media and leftists, but the GOPe just stood by and watched (sort of like the corrupt “Nobles” in Braveheart). But the Tea Party supporters did not go away, they just shifted to Trump when he showed up.

      I actually think the GOPe were the primary killers. Naming names: Bush (all of ’em). Rove, Ryan, Mc Cain, Romney. If you need names of more liberal GOP “leaders” ask; I have a list of over 200 far left GOp datg back to ’89!

      Some of us, Evi, didn’t jump on the Trump Bandwagon.

    Who do you think voted for President Trump

      Not me. My mantra was #NoCaesars or, to put it another way: No Hillary / No Trump.

    The Tea-Party is not an organization; it’s a message; that says, “we’re here and we vote, and with our last breath we will still believe (In God and His Son Jesus Christ and the freedoms He gave us in America).”

    It’s good that, like a vapor the Tea-Party vanished. I watched in the beginning as the movement began to see a creeping in of no-goodnicks, trying to gain an advantage and turn us into another Swamp monster. The usual suspects began to come into our midst and “help” us to be what they thought we needed; It was a typical vulture fest, hosted by the devious, self-seeking scoundrels in government, white supremacists, and other nefarious groups (even fake Democrats disguised as conservatives). But they failed because the Tea-Party is still active in the hearts of millions.

    Though the Tea-Party movement might seem to be gone in a material way; remember so are Boehner and Ryan; the enemies of the Tea-Party; who told the Tea-Party winning candidates to SIT DOWN and SHUT UP after we gave them the House and Senate. Those derelicts are gone but the conservative movement isn’t. But only with God’s help can we stop the destruction of our nation by the left.

    If the GOPe didn’t administer the coup de grace, they pointed and told the left, “hit it here.”
