Spot on analysis of the Tea Parties from Andrew Yeoman at AltRight.
What’s most surprised me about the Tea Party phenomenon is the vitriolic manner in which prominent social commentators have attacked the protestors. Noam Chomsky, for instance, recently dismissed the Tea Party as a “fascist” movement. Though unlike the current President in office, the Tea Party isn’t demanding more government control over healthcare, the economy, and our daily lives.
Politically speaking, it would be far wiser for libertarian-minded and antiwar people to get behind the Tea Party. Same for Left wing anarchists who — despite what they call themselves — are against the Tea Party’s call for less taxes and less government.
At any rate, the best thing the Tea Party has done has been to provoke the “culture warriors” of the Establishment to show their true partisan colors. Eventually, Tea Party activists will notice who is consistently on their side and who is against them.
