The Tea Party Vs. The People

The St. Louis tea party and their associates like Chip Gerdes of Quincy, Illinois have been disturbingly obsessed lately with the local group MORE (Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment). Naturally, they go through their usual routine of claiming that MORE is a secret plot to take over the United States, but the real reason they hate MORE is because MORE has the audacity to challenge bad corporate actors like Bank of America who are scamming homeowners in St. Louis and across the country.

Charles Jaco had a nice report on this that riffed off of a meeting organized by MORE:

When they first started, the tea party claimed to stand up for the working guy. Now, they are proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that they were formed for the sole purpose of defending corporate abuses of power.

  1. In the face of hundreds of thousands of people marching all over the nation (including over 4,000 here in St. Louis), standing strong for the preservation of the middle class and against corporate greed, the local TeaPublicans seem to be feeling threatened and irrelevant. Their astroturf is wearing thin.
