Did the momentum from Donald Trump suck up all of the energy from the so-called Tea Party movement? They were all we could talk about for a few years, but I haven’t heard anything from them after 2014. According to Wikipedia (I just checked), their numbers have been declining since 2010. Interesting.
The dynamic with the teabaggers and Trump supporters are pretty similar. They both claim to support an unobjectionable cause (Tax reform! Making America Great Again!), but both are basically fronts for right-wing nationalism. The teabaggers were slightly more covert about this, but they were also leaderless (if you don’t count Glenn Beck or AFP).
We aren’t exactly progressing as a society, are we?
