shame on ewe for getting your 'facts' from msm 'news' sites for idjit sheeple

ewe'r BS 'news' site claims it began in 2009 (actually 2007) and it doesn't even mention Ron Paul
If ewe'd done as I've always suggested truth searchers do and google the topic name with 'Infowars' one will get the Real scoop
Here's the REAL history of it ewe idjit
Tea Party Co-Founder: Concept Has Been Hijacked By False Left/Right Paradigm http://www.prisonplanet.com/tea-party-co-foun...
^"Constitutionalist grass roots activist Chad Peace was part of the original team of people who organised Boston Tea Party re-enactment protests in 50 different cities in late 2007, in support of Congressman Ron Paulís presidential campaign.
The protests became extremely popular, and continued throughout 2008 and into 2009, prompting thousands of people to engage in peaceful political protest."
and according to Wiki
The Tea Party's most-noted national figures include Republican politicians Ron Paul, his son Rand Paul, Sarah Palin, Dick Armey, Eric Cantor and Michele Bachmann. The elder Paul is described by some as the "intellectual godfather" of the movement.
The theme of the Boston Tea Party, an iconic event in American history, has long been used by anti-tax protesters. It was part of Tax Day protests held throughout the 1990s and earlier.
More recently, the anniversary of the original Boston Tea Party was commemorated on December 16, 2007, by Republican Congressman Ron Paul supporters who held a "Boston tea-party event" in 2007 which was a fundraiser for the Ron Paul 2008 Presidential Campaign which advocated an end to fiat money and the Federal Reserve System, disengaging from foreign entanglements in Iraq and Afghanistan, and upholding States' rights. <----*
the other wiki,'RationalWiki' also has the same truth:
"The first use of the Tea Party iconography started in 2007 during Ron Paul's presidential campaign.
"Rand Paul, who gave a speech at the first tea party event held in December of 2007 and who subsequently endorsed by other Tea Party groups, won the Super Tuesday GOP Senate primary in Kentucky.
