The tea party’s silence on Trump shows their hypocrisy and true goal: the advancement of white people

The rise of the tea party was, according to their rhetoric, a response rising taxes and a government that had grown too big, too corrupt, and too bloated. Their very “freedom” was at stake, they claimed, because regulations, what the rest of us call “protections”, were strangling our collective American Dream. Donald Trump was never a tea party candidate. That […]

UPDATED x2: Number of people at pro-ACA rally in Jackson, Michigan: 400+, number of media mentions: ZERO

UPDATED x2: Number of people at pro-ACA rally in Jackson, Michigan: 400+, number of media mentions: ZERO

Back in 2009 when the Affordable Care Act was being debated, all it took was for three or four tea partiers to gather with anti-Obamacare signs on a street corner and they got all sorts of publicity. Now that the tables have turned, that sort of publicity appears hard to come by, at least in Michigan’s 7th Congressional District. This […]

What you can actually do to resist Trump

What you can actually do to resist Trump

How to Tea Party like it’s 2009 If you’re not a member of the electoral college, you’re probably wondering what you can do to resist the coming of the least qualified, most unpopular president of our — or likely any American’s — lifetime. Since most of us aren’t professional pundits but play them on the internet, we spend much of […]

The GOP’s own rules are forcing it into an internal civil war

The GOP’s own rules are forcing it into an internal civil war

There are a lot of recriminations being aimed at the Republican Party these days about allowing a narcissistic, sexist bigot to be their presidential nominee. But there was little they could do once Trump began his march toward the primary. After spending decades laying the groundwork for his faux populist candidacy, demonizing liberals, Democrats, immigrants, women, and all the other […]

Tea party charter school leader admits becoming a cyber school was simply a way to get chartered

Tea party charter school leader admits becoming a cyber school was simply a way to get chartered

I wrote my first piece about the Livingston Christian Academy, now called the Livingston Classical Academy (LCA), back in December of 2014. Since then, the group – which hopes to open a school with a curriculum steeped in tea party ideology and right-wing principles – was sent packing by Brighton schools. However, after shopping around, LCA ended up landing a […]

To the tea party activists who blew up the Republican Party, welcome to your worst nightmare: President Hillary Clinton

To the tea party activists who blew up the Republican Party, welcome to your worst nightmare: President Hillary Clinton

The Detroit News recently published an article highlighting two Michigan tea party activists who are working on a “Dump Trump” campaign to deny Donald J. Trump the Republican nomination for president by changing the rules of the Republican convention. One of them is Wendy Day, a Howell-based tea partier who is best known, at least to me, as the woman […]

With 11 months left in Obama’s term, Michigan 7th District Republicans vote ask Tim Walberg to intro articles of impeachment

President Obama now has less than a year left in his final term in office. But that hasn’t stopped the drumbeat of calls for his impeachment among the most fervent haters of the country’s first African American POTUS. This past week, the Michigan 7th Congressional District Republicans passed a resolution asking Congressman Tim Walberg to introduce articles of impeachment. In […]

Denied by Brighton schools, group shops its tea party charter school to Whitmore Lake schools

You have to give the group headed up by rabid tea partier Pasquale Battaglia credit; they are persistent. After having their request to charter their tea party charter school denied by Brighton Public Schools, they have turned their attention now to Whitmore Lake Public Schools. The WLPS voted on October 26th to put out a call soliciting a cyber charter […]

Allegan County tea party chair triples down on “Michigan Republicans are far worse than Islamic terrorists” insanity

Allegan County tea party chair triples down on “Michigan Republicans are far worse than Islamic terrorists” insanity

A few days ago I wrote about Stephen Young, the chair of the Allegan County Tea Party. Allegan County is the home base for former State House Rep. (I love saying that) Cindy Gamrat and Young has been Gamrat’s staunchest and most vocal supporter. Young was so outraged at Gamrat being thrown out of the legislature that he went on […]

Allegan County Tea Party head: Ouster of Cindy Gamrat the same as 9/11 attacks, Michigan Republicans worse than terrorist jihadists

Allegan County Tea Party head: Ouster of Cindy Gamrat the same as 9/11 attacks, Michigan Republicans worse than terrorist jihadists

Cindy Gamrat got elected in Allegan County largely because there is such an active tea party presence there. Her over the top politics are so in-sync with this group that even her lying and philandering weren’t enough for her to lose their support. In fact, the head of the Allegan County Tea Party, Stephen Young, told WZZM, “The question now […]

Courser/Gamrat: The Truth Will/Should/Maybe Set You Free

Courser/Gamrat: The Truth Will/Should/Maybe Set You Free

I wrote the following on my Facebook page yesterday: “This is more than just an outrage. It is more than just two tea party zealots forcing their ill-conceived and obsessive behavior and “ideas” upon the unwashed and uneducated who have followed them with gusto and hearty resolve. This is more than just about hypocrisy and plain stupidity. “What it is […]
