    What was the main idea behind the TEA party? Was there any violence at any of their marches?
    How does it compare to the current protests against Trump?

      There was very little violence at those rallies. In fact, I think the media overplays the Tea Party factor.  If they were so influential, why did Obama win a second term?  I'm no Tea Party guy, but they were pretty harmless.

      If you listen to some of the analysts on CNN, they talk about the Tea Party like it was a band of crazies storming the White House.  It was just a normal reaction to a downturn in the economy and overall frustration in D.C.  If waving the American flag and demanding action from your government is "radical," then we're all in trouble.

        I'm sorry but I have to disagree. The TEA had tremendous influence after the mid term election of 2010. The Democrats lost seats a the majority ever since. The only exception was the 2012 election where Obama won but his party lost seats... It happened again jn 2014 and now 2016...
        Obama was popular among his constituents and won many black votes who did not turn out for Hillary.
        The whole Conservative shift in Washington despite the objection of McConnel and Ryan is due to TEA party candidates that support a reduced deficit and taxes ans spending...
        You are corrent about the non violence marches and how the media try to demonize the TEA party... more fake news exposed.

    So not only has the Tea Party prevailed since  2010 ,silently in the wings and  so effectively electing Trump ?  But the entire Obama phenomenon can not be  easily  duplicated  , without the 90% black vote that elected him , Democrats have no  ,- I REPEAT NO- , chance for the relatively far ,distant future !

    Prove me wrong - The new ultra- left is  D.O.A.
