Sometime in February, about 1,000 people gather in St. Louis to protest the economic crash and the election of Barack Obama. They call themselves the Tea Party and claim to be a grassroots movement against big government, taxes, and the national debt. They are not.
The Tea Party (or Tea Party Patriots) is the result of combined influence operations by the Council for National Policy, the State Policy Network, Americans for Prosperity, the Sam Adams Alliance, the Franklin Center for Government and Public Integrity, and the Koch brothers (Koch Industries).
Over time, the Tea Party’s messaging grows more and more racist, with their targeted villain alternating between big government and the president himself. One of the organizers of this movement is Amy Kremer, who later becomes the face of Women for America First / Women for Trump.
The Tea Party becomes so prominent in state and national politics across the country that when I asked a Trump supporter to explain the group to me, they just said “it’s another name for the GOP, right?”
Donald Trump was not the first criminal elected to public office, and he won’t be the last. It’s up to US to hold them accountable.
