NPR is a real haven for the Left and at times the very far Left, so it shouldn’t surprise to hear one NPR commentator mischaracterize the Tea Party movement’s aims as well as try to distance them from the actual goals of the first Tea Party from where the movement draws its name.
It was about tyranny, yes it was about being taxed unfairly, and no, the modern day version of the same name is not organized just to combat high taxes, but to send a message that today’s government does not reflect the will of the people. That is tyranny. NPR gets it all wrong of course. But the flavor of the story coming from Newsy.com is refreshing, it offers a balance and lets you decide. Cool. KGS
