As ThinkProgress has documented, the lobbyist-run Americans for Prosperity (AFP) has been instrumental in orchestrating the Tea Party movement. The group coordinated “grassroots” protests around the country and provided organizations and communications support to the Tea Parties. AFP staffers are also regular presence at Tea Party rallies. The man behind AFP is David Koch, who is one of the richest men in the world thanks to his oil, chemicals, and manufacturing conglomerate Koch Industries.
As I have said over and over, while I think many people at these “tea” parties have a reason to be upset with government, the yare mislead and misinformed as to why they are there. If not for the bankrolling by Koch industries and their own “news” channel the “tea” parties would of died out long ago.
Ok let the ..”yea but george soros” choir begin…
