    With few exceptions they didn't deny them, they slow walked them.

    Plus, while they were waiting they were allowed to operate as charitable organizations until the final approval/denial was issued.

    That was the media moment.

    But a full blown, fully formed national group of organizations didn’t suddenly materialize just because of a remark on cable TV. That’s what they told you.

    But look into any of the larger tea party organizations and you won’t have to look far before you find the connections between them an right wing public relations firms, conservative lawyers, DC political marketing organizations, and in at least one case I know of, outright pocket-the-contributions fraud.

    Not that it matters.

    Not long after the first anniversary of Mr Santelli’s remarks, tea party websites were already going dark and the money had dried up.

    And, right wingers may not like the fact that people had little trouble spotting the latent racism in much of it, but the fact that the Tea Party was 99% Republican and 95% white spoke volumes.

    Indeed, it’s the same mob that bought Sarah Palin and Donald Trump.

    They didn’t deny a single one, they didn’t slow walk them either.

    The IRS had noticed that a “spontaneous” avalanche of new applications for “social welfare” organizations began to flood the IRS in 2008-9.

    Funny thing, they all wanted to be classified under the heretofore obscure part of the IRS Code.

    501c(4).

    This allowed them to collect unlimited cash from donors, without having to tell anyone where the money came from.

    Which is a very useful thing when you’re conning the Limbaughloonies into believing that all this sudden money actually came from the “grass roots”.

    Like most protests they lost steam. Protesting is pointless. Nobody cares about it.

    Like all conservative movements, it was a fraud from the start.
    “I believe that If we're successful in this election, when we're successful in this election, that the fever may break [for Republicans]” - Obama, 2012

    ”Republicans ‘know better’, ‘will change after Trump’...” - Joe Biden, 2019

    You were on DP in the Obama years, so you know the right wingers on here and in the broader right wing bubble kept harping about weakest recovery on record, etc. blah blah, Obama economic policies suck! Then Trump takes over and the same trends that have been in place for YEARS are evidence of a "thriving!!!" economy. And it doesn't piss me off at all. I'm glad of it.

    Would have "thrived" more if Obama had blown up the deficit $200B a year like the GOP did with the tax cuts, since deficits are short term stimulus. But regardless, I'm happy for the economy being good, I just worry what happens when we throw out a big fiscal boost at full employment and are running $trillion deficits when the economy is about as good as it gets. When it goes into recession, what happens? MORE TAX CUTS?

    Your ignorance about the TEA party is not shocking. Of COURSE you think the TEA party was only about democrats and Obama. Which only proves how little you know about the origins of the TEA party. But then...you DO see what you want to see.
    I didn't say it was "only" about Democrats and Obama. You quoted my comment - why misrepresent what I said?
