The Tea Party Is Going Global

Anyone who has actually been involved in the mechanics of politics knows that polls are used more to push opinion, thus they are called Push Polls, than they are used to actually accurately gauge voter opinion. A prime example was the degradation of the 1960's silent majority by polling firms that couldn't find them and today we are witnessing the very same as "pollsters" point to the unpopular and dwindling Tea Party movement. They do this in an attempt to push opinion against the movement for a simple reason, they are scared to death of the Tea Party.

A good article looks at the growing and increasingly popular movement around the world.

The Global Tea Party and Its Enemies

The Global Tea Party thus extends from the United States to China, leaving its footprint in the Middle East.  You can even see it in Europe, most recently in the Netherlands, where the lynchpin of the current government—Geert Wilders, an outspoken Christian—has called for a reassertion of traditional Dutch values, denounced the excessive toleration of reactionary, intolerant Islamism, and convinced his countrymen to require immigrants to learn Dutch and learn, and abide by, the rules and ideals of their new society.  His recent speech in Berlin  sounds very familiar to anyone familiar with Tea Party passions.

So when we hear the leaders of the American Establishment declare war on the tea partiers, we would do well to remember that such movements are deeply imbedded in our national DNA, that those Establishment types owe their own status to such a movement, that the dreams of the tea partiers are shared not only by millions of American voters, but by freedom-seeking peoples in some very unexpected places, and that it is no accident to discover that a global movement in the name of freedom coincides with a global Great Awakening, with roots in America and its unique revolutionary tradition.

Yep, China. I wonder if members of the Tea Party-like movement there are called stupid fat white old people that are anti-science by intellectual elitists pining for the return of Mao Tse-Tung like such American heavyweights like Nancy Pelosi, Andre Carson and Richard Trumka.
