The Tea Party fades away with hardly a whimper.

Where have all the tea partiers gone, long time passing? Where have all the tea partiers gone, long time ago?

Courtesy of Yahoo News:

The Republican newcomers stunned Washington back in 2010 when they seized the House majority with bold promises to cut taxes and spending and to roll back what many viewed as Barack Obama’s presidential overreach.

But don’t call them tea party Republicans any more.

Eight years later, the House Tea Party Caucus is long gone. So, too, are almost half the 87 new House Republicans elected in the biggest GOP wave since the 1920s.

Some, including current Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and White House budget director Mick Mulvaney, joined the executive branch. Others slipped back to private life. Several are senators.

Now, with control of the House again at stake this fall and just three dozen of them seeking re-election, the tea party revolt shows the limits of riding a campaign wave into the reality of governing.

Rep. Austin Scott, R-Ga., who was president of that freshman class, objects to the tea party brand that he says was slapped on the group by the media and the Obama administration. It’s a label some lawmakers now would rather forget.

“We weren’t who you all said we were,” Scott said.

Yes, they were.

They were EXACTLY who we said they were. 

Racist assholes hiding behind an anti-big government camouflage so that they could undermine and attack the first black President. 

And now that they have obtained their greatest objective, to destroy the government from within by putting the most unqualified person in the country into the White House., they scatter like cockroaches with shame on their faces and fear in their hearts at what they have created.

    1994>”This is how Rwandan local radio incited the Hutus to violence (an act against international law):
    ‘You have to kill the Tutsis, they’re cockroaches.’
    ‘All those who are listening, rise so we can fight for our Rwanda. Fight with the weapons you have at your disposal: those who have arrows, with arrows, those who have spears, with spears. We must all fight.’
    ‘We must all fight the Tutsis. We must finish with them, exterminate them, sweep them from the whole country. There must be no refuge for them.’
    ‘They must be exterminated. There is no other way.’
    Does hearing instructions via the media make them harder to ignore?

    This is how a war correspondent saw the Rwandan genocide in retrospect: ‘Scratch below the surface of this genocide and you will find not a simple issue of tribal hatreds but a complex web of politics, economics, history, psychology, and a struggle for identity. What happened in Rwanda was the result of cynical manipulation by powerful political and military leaders. Faced with the choice of sharing their power with the Rwandan Patriotic Front, they chose to vilify the RPF’s main support group, the Tutsis. The authorities told the Hutus that the Tutsis planned to take their land. They summoned up memories of the colonial days when the Tutsi overlordship had guaranteed second-class citizenship for the Hutus. “Remember your shame. Remember how they humiliated us. Be proud of your Hutu blood.” Intellectuals were recruited into the cause of creating a pan-Hutu consciousness, and they travelled the country spreading the propaganda of hate. “Mercy is a sign of weakness. Show them any mercy and they will make slaves of you again.” There were powerful echoes of Hitler’s Germany and the demonisation of the Jews….What kind of man can kill a child? A man not born to hate but who has learned hatred. A man like you or me.’
    What do you think?”

    WATCH: Kentucky valedictorian tricks his Trump-loving classmates into cheering for Obama

    A high school valedictorian in Louisville, Kentucky last week pulled the bait-and-switch on his classmates during his graduation speech, letting the audience celebrate a quote from “Donald J. Trump,” before admitting to the crowd those words actually belonged to Barack Obama.

    “This is the part of my speech where I share some inspirational quotes I found on Google,” Bell County high school student Bill Bowling said in his speech. “‘Don’t just get involved. Fight for your seat at the table. Better yet, fight for a seat at the head of the table.’—Donald J. Trump.”

    As the crowd began to cheer, Bowling added: “Just kidding. That was Barack Obama.”

    “The crowd erupted in applause and before they could even finish clapping I said I was kidding and the applause quickly died,” Bowling explained

    Asked about his speech, Bowling told USA Today he chose to use the quote because he “just thought it was a really good quote.”

    “Most people wouldn’t like it if I used it, so thought I’d use Donald Trump’s name,” Bowling said. “It is southeastern Kentucky after all.”

    “Backing down in the face of presidential recalcitrance would not only reward Trump but also tell future presidents that they can evade the ordinary demands of the law as long as they have the stomach to bully and delay,” she writes. “Mueller shouldn’t let that happen. He has waited long enough.”

    Publishers are ‘backing off’ Don Jr.’s book because they worry ‘he might be charged’: Fox report

    …The Fox Business reporter said that he had spoken to multiple publishers that shared the same concerns.

    “They are questioning him as he’s peddling his book about the Mueller probe, worried about whether he might in fact be charged,” Gasparino said. “Put all that together and you’ve got people backing off this thing. Significant publishers.”

    According to Gasparino, publishers have been grilling Trump’s son about his meeting with Russians in Trump Tower during the 2016 campaign.

    “He comes away essentially flabbergasted, saying, ‘I can’t believe they’re still looking at this, I never had time to collude,’” he added. “So he is having difficulty convincing publishers on what he wants to pitch, as one person called it, a ‘defense of daddy.’”

    Those Tea Party members merely changed their tricorn hats in for MAGA red hats. Still racists; still getting their information from FAUX News. They will someday be viewed in the same light as the so-called “Good Germans” who supported the Third Reich.

    The Koch brothers did their damage with the Tea Party. And that Tea Party mentality persists today – poisoning local governments as well as the US government where senators and representatives deny the reality of climate change, vote against health care, and work to dissolve all that has been good in this country. They’re still at it. We have a change in November to reduce their numbers. We must rise to the challenge.

      YES, Beaglemom, they are still here. I am not a pessimist, I just watch and listen.
      President Obama did not destroy this country, THEY have.

    OH, Queen Heifer does not look like THAT anymore! Have you seen her lately?
    You GO, $arah, but you really need to invest in that upper lip overbite action.
    What’s a nip and tuck? You’re ALL that.
    So much for growing old gracefully! 🙂

    Donny Jr wrote a book? Hell he needed Daaaaaaaddddy to write a note to the press coverignup the Russia collusion meeting because he was too dumb to compose it himself.

    She’s no heifer anymore either – she’s a burger cow. Doesn’t prodcue enough to keep her around. Too old and tough and dried out for any prime cuts or even stew meat, so it’s just the grinder for some cutter /canner grade burger.

    THE PARTY OF
    “ANTHROPOMORPHIC GOD AS GASEOUS VERTEBRATE”

    “The Dunleavy ads feature a manufactured Hammond quote spliced together from an appearance on public television in Alaska in 1993.

    “To me it would be asinine frankly to reduce dividends. You’re putting the whole burden on Alaskans and only Alaskans,” the ad quotes the bolo-tie-wearing Hammond as saying.

    But that’s not what Hammond said.

    About 45 seconds of the interview—everything Hammond said between those two sentences—was cut out. That was the part in which Hammond said he would raise taxes and user fees instead of cutting dividends.”
    “What Hammond actually said in the 1993 TV appearance was this:

    “To me it would be asinine frankly to reduce dividends and thereby impose a head tax on Alaskans and only Alaskans without at least first imposing such a thing as an income tax, extracting revenues from people who come up here.””

    “He said he had asked the following question at four economic summits: “Would anybody tell me whenever it makes more sense to cap dividends than it would be to again, ratchet up an income tax or a wage tax or whatever in equivalency and thereby put the tax load on those who can best afford it and have it shared by non-residents? Otherwise you’re putting the whole burden on Alaskans and only Alaskans.”

    This was all part of a panel discussion on state issues that included Gov. Wally Hickel, who was in office at the time, and former Govs. Keith Miller, Bill Sheffield, Steve Cowper and Hammond. Thanks to the University of Alaska Fairbanks, the discussion is available online.” “The ad is accurate to the extent that Hammond opposed cutting dividends. But it is asinine to exclude the tax talk.”
