Tom MacArthurs town-hall meeting should have been uneventful. It was May and MacArthur, a Republican congressman, had come home to New Jersey to talk to constituents, having won re-election with a hefty majority less than a year earlier. Normally, at such an event, he might have expected to field a couple of dozen idiosyncratic questions, trot out some polite replies, wrap up after an hour or so, and go home for an easy nights sleep.
But it didnt quite pan out like that.
Six days earlier, the House of Representatives had voted to pass the American Health Care Act, which was predicted to leave millions of Americans without health insurance. MacArthur had written the amendment that had revived the bill, after an earlier version failed to garner enough support. Now, nearly a thousand furious protesters carrying mock-ups of their would-be gravestones were outside the town-hall venue to greet him. The few allowed inside spent five full hours savaging him.

The difference being that the Tea Party movement loves America and its constitution. It chose to exercise political power through the vote....and will continue the o do so.
These little teerps at Quartz and those like them are commies and useful idiots. They use violence and lies. They will lose
Just like they were going to have their own talk radio network.
Their healthcare has already been stolen from them and they're just too ignorant to realize it. The thief was the usurper Barak Hussein Obama and his democrappy party.
LOL... Yeah that went real well. There were probably about 12 people total listening at the end of all that.
“Tax Everyone Absolutely”?
Whatever happened to the astroturf Coffee Party?
Pink Pussies, Antifata, Black Lives Matters, Indivisibles, Planned Parenthood...
“Just like they were going to have their own talk radio network”
Duplicity of effort. NPR was already in place.
That must be the melding of antifa and blm....
The left’s version of a TEA party is Antifa which is a criminal organization so they are no threat.
