Matt Taibbi’s Tea Party Article for Rolling Stone



Matt Taibbi, the acclaimed Rolling Stone writer, authored a seminal article on the Tea Party last month. With the election in the rear view and the Conservative agenda barreling toward us, it is important for every anti-Tea Partier to understand the peculiarities of the Right’s new faction. Read the entire article HERE. Below, some killer quotes…

“The Tea Party today is being pitched in the media as this great threat to the GOP; in reality, the Tea Party is the GOP. What few elements of the movement aren’t yet under the control of the Republican Party soon will be, and even if a few genuine Tea Party candidates sneak through, it’s only a matter of time before the uprising as a whole gets castrated, just like every grass-roots movement does in this country.”

“It would be inaccurate to say the Tea Partiers are racists. What they are, in truth, are narcissists. They’re completely blind to how offensive the very nature of their rhetoric is to the rest of the country.”

“They want desperately to believe in the one-size-fits-all, no-government theology of Rand Paul because it’s so easy to understand. At times, their desire to withdraw from the brutally complex global economic system that is an irrevocable fact of our modern life and get back to a simpler world that no longer exists is so intense, it breaks your heart.”
