The Tea Party — a phony “grassroots” movement that is and always has been nothing but a front for the Republican Party — showed its true colors Sunday when Amy Kremer, chair of the Tea Party Express, admitted the so-called group of independents will endorse a Republican — any Republican — for President.
“Whoever the Republican nominee is will have the support of the Tea Party movement — the entire Tea Party movement,” Kremer told Fox News Sunday.
Even Mitt Romney?
Yes, Kremer said. Even Mitt Romney.
So much for independence. So much for looking at the candidate, not the party. So much for the grassroots.
“There is no way that we are going to support a third party candidate,” Kremer told Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace. “It would split the vote and it would guarantee reelection for Obama and we need to crush Obama. We have to get him out of the White House.”
Kremer’s comments expose the Tea Party for what it is — an arm of the GOP funded by the billionaire Koch brothers and run by the GOP establishment.
It never has been a “grassroots” movement.
It never was one.
And it never will be one.
