Tea Party's racist Christian supremicist ties documented

via Tim Wise

"For those who still refuse to believe that the Tea Party movement is thoroughly infested with racists, white nationalists, Christian supremacists and assorted extremists — and who cleave to the lie that they are only protesting “big government,” taxes and deficits – this report completely demolishes any legitimacy to the latter, sanguine view. Put together for the NAACP by veteran researchers and experts on the far-right (full disclosure: I know both authors and consider them friends), it demonstrates the connections to overt bigots clearly. Even if most hangers-on and followers of the movement are not motivated by racism, the movement’s core is about white nationalism, and it is this core that determines the direction of the movement, not some elderly grandma from Scottsdale."

The report is actually pretty long and detailed but the gist is that the founders and leaders of the Tea Party movement are bigots, Holocaust deniers and Christian dominionists  (big shock, I know).
