Skip to comments.The Tea Party Took Its Name Based On an Act of Deception (You've got to see this)

In the past few primary elections the Tea Party has won some and lost some. Lately it's been more "lost some" than "won some."
Several months ago I wrote that the Tea Party was founded on an act of impersonation based on an act of deception. They named themselves and patterned themselves after a bunch of so-called Boston Patriots who decided to rebel over a tax on tea by sneaking aboard a vessel that had received a shipment of tea and dumping the tea into the Boston Harbor. In order to conceal this criminal act from the authorities they dressed themselves up as Mohawk Indians hoping to transfer the blame to the Indian people.
The so-called Patriots who committed this criminal action were too cowardly to stand up and be counted as the heroes they envisioned themselves to be, but instead sought to deceive the authorities by shifting the blame upon the Mohawk and if believed, this act of cowardice could have been deadly to the local Indians.
When a group of Republicans decided they would shake up the Republican Party by forming themselves into the Tea Party, an ultra-conservative wing of the Republican Party, they decided to take a page from the history books and breathe new life into it by taking an extreme stance against federal spending and taxes. The Tea Party brought out its share of wing nuts as supporters and candidates with Sarah Palin of Alaska grabbing the brass ring.
Since they were new and fresh-faced they did manage to get some of their candidates elected and this set the traditional Republican Party back on its heels. They didn't know what to do with the newcomers who were vocal, rude and uncompromising. They also proved to be extreme obstructionists....

He doesn’t even know it’s the TEA party. He thinks it’s the Tea Party.
They actually begin by ATTACKING the Boston Tea Party. let me find a picture of this idiot.
Hey chief, I got some wampum to trade...Deal?
I’ve sometimes mused about this. How would palefaces, in that day (there weren’t even very good mirrors yet), manage to disguise themselves effectively as Indians rather than appearing as obviously in costume? Maybe they wanted to project the image of being “wild as Indians” instead of actually effecting a disguise — i.e. something as obvious as blackface would be?
So is this a Cowboy or is this an Injun?
That picture screams “lover of ward Churchill.”
Since the Left have no ideas of their own all they can do is cast innuendos at those they can’t debate in the arena of ideas.
Rumor has it that the raid on the ship was pulled-off by the Masons, who were mostly the influential men of the city.
Taxed Enough Already
Not a clue to the fact that it’s a MOVEMENT, not a PARTY? No idea who Rick Santelli is, or what he said on the exchange floor?
You just can’t fix stupid....
And D-day was in large part an act of deception. It was pathetic and evil in its conception. And we should give todays’ adherents of Adolf Hitler another chance to reconstitute the Nazi party and let them have back all of Europe.
It’s only fair, for the children.
These people cannot be serious. or Sane.
That’s close to the sense I was getting. That they were as native as the Indians.
Not every paleface reference to Indians is uncomplimentary, liberal fretting notwithstanding. The existing reservation system is probably suboptimal for tribes who would rather be roaming around in vast wildernesses, but it is a compromise.
The writer seems to miss the fact that there is really no such thing as ‘The Tea Party’, so the stated circumstances behind its ‘founding’ are equally imaginary.
That stated, I’m a fervent supporter of Tea Party values and principles as we know them, and not as mischaracterized and smeared by libs, progressives, Dems and dimwits who believe every pejorative hurled by the alphabet networks and other ‘mainstream’ media outlets.
They “painted” their faces with soot to not stand out in the moonlight. Indians also painted their faces for other reasons. Hence this raid was done “Indian-style”, and over time people believed they dressed as actual Indians (but not really).
TEA Party is more a meme than a formal organization.
Native American Journalists Ass. LOL! That’s funny. I don’t care who you are, that’s funny right there. I didn’t know we had one of those.
We must really be over the target. Party on TEA.
Is the left deliberately letting it slip that they hate this country from its founding? They're not attacking a particular philosophy or political point of view but the very roots of America at this stage.
We've been saying this from day one and now they don't even make much effort to hide it.
I still have my home-made sign saying just that.
Unbelievably stupid author.....why let history or facts get in the way of a good polemic? bleeech
...and that's what really scares the crap out of these Leftists. It's a decentralized, self-organizing force. It cannot be destroyed.
Leftists hate a lot of things and love little, if anything.
They’re Injuns. But that’s not a bad thing in itself. They’re Injuns with feathers up their rear, so to speak.
Over 5,000 colonists participated in the fateful meetings at Old South Meeting House that decided the fate of the tea in December of 1773, but only about 100 to 150 men actually boarded the ships to destroy the tea. Participants in the destruction of the tea swore themselves to secrecy and did not acknowledge each other when aboard the ship. Had the men’s names become known to British authorities, they would have been arrested and punished. Even years later, some retained secrecy for fear of lawsuits by the British East India Company.

Yup. That's Pure Native alright!
He’s a cretin
I thought it to be ironic, that Indians are calling themselves “cowboys”.
Maybe you never played cowboys and Indians as a kid.
War whoops of laughter all around! American Indians are the silliest of the politically correct.
A clear indication that they fear the evolution of a new right wing movement that will wipe the Obamanauts off the map...google UKIP and Stephen Harper...both leaders have, or are raising a new conservative political movement from the ashes. The lefties are pooping their panties. The western democracies are rejecting social democracy
Did he mention Khloe Kardashian wearing an Indian Headdress?
Sorry about that. I’m reading this on my phone and didn’t see “Cowboys”. I just went back and scrolled over to see it.
So called patriots.
I guess the author must be quoting Howard Zinn or some other Commie scholar.
Self identified Native American J-Ass.
I’ve been looking at starting the Ambidextrous Journalists Association of America.
I think most writers type with both hands.
So applying that reasoning, every institution named after a signer of the Declaration of Independence is promoting treason.
The author is an idiot.
The American Indian was the symbol of America. Now one would envision Uncle Same as the symbol of the United States but back then it was the American Indian.
The Sons of Liberty knew exactly what they were doing and wanted the British to know it was them. Everyone in the damned city of Boston knew who did this.
Nope. It's the Tea Party. It was founded by Rick Santelli on 19 February 2009:
"We're thinking of having Chicago Tea Party in July. All you capitalists who want to show up at Lake Michigan, I'm going to start organizing ... I'm thinking of dumping in some derivative securities."
Do progressives really think Liz Warren successfully passes off as an Indian ? In a costume she would look hysterical, as all those former Europeans throwing the Tea overboard looked.
Hey now we had a Muslim who pretended to be Christian and said we’d have a transparent government if he got elected so I don’t see the big deal about people disguising themselves to throw tea overboard when they were told they’d have to pay taxes on it against their will just because Britain wanted to tax it simply to make more $$$ just because they said so.
