The Tea Party Movement of 2009 eas an reaction the Democratic Party and the Presidency of Barrack Obama. Which ushered in a movement and aspiring leadership within the Republican Party. That in the end gave a platform to the likes of President Donald J. Trump that thrives on these populist and racists acts.
That President Trump is soon over, but his “Trumpism” and his theories will live on. This man will try to thrive on it and get monetary gains on it too. That is what he does. This is his next racket. Where he uses the political platform and his “legacy” to build on the “America First” and the MAGA crowds. To find ways to make himself viable. Create narratives and even use fiction to gain momentum.
That is why they are still forging the narrative of a stolen election. Continuing with endless law-suits that ends with nothing. The Trump Administration is trying to configure ways to earn funds, build a organization and find backers. Which will give them funds and capital post-Presidency. Since, the President needs it with defaulting debt, criminal cases and lack of good lawyers to carry the pending trials after the loss of “Executive Privilege” and leverage of the White House.
This is why Trump will build on the nostalgia, the ideals of White AmeriKKKa and the “forgotten classes” of society. Where he can bring middle America and sprint into the White Supremacy and ideologies, where he still resembles their “dear leader”. That is why his tried every trick in the book to overturn an election. Just to ensure the safe space and legitimacy. Where he could still earn profits of his public office.
Trump is just using these avenues as he thrives on hate and racism. If he didn’t, he wouldn’t associate or defend these people. The man wouldn’t have ushered in these Executive Orders and made the policies as brutal during his term. As he would like ICE Agents to raid homes like the Gestapo and put kids in cages for profiteering companies to build makeshift camps for refugees and asylum-seekers. However, that is what has been done and that is why his favoured by racist within the Republic.
The ones who would like and endure a split of the Republic. To go back to the Confederacy and break the Union. So, that Trump could run the split Republic and be their sole-candidate. Be the Tin-Pot Dictator of the Republican South and rule the rural parts of America. Where he got the support. As that is the saving grace. They would enjoy to be run by a con, a scammer and liar-in-chief. That is their guy, because he deliver their racist backwards agenda.
This is why Trump is more dangerous than the Tea Party Movement. This is the extension and the hard-core base. The Qanon and armed militias trusting blindly in their “dear leader” and ride or die attitude, which even ends up in violent attacks on State Houses and threats of coup d’etat. Just like the ones that went after the Governor in Michigan. And the trying to seal the case with the Texas Attorney General petition to the Supreme Court. This is all using the powers and their stations to destroy Democracy from within and the Republican Party plays into it.
They are all following Trump and being led by his motives. His selfish and narrow-minded acts, which only serves him and his purpose. This man will feed into anything to possibly gain. Create fake culture-wars and spin all sort of conspiracy. It will be lizard-people, pizza-gates and whatnot. Without any proof and Alex Jones will play on the strings. Rush Limbaugh will sing his songs too. All of the Presidents Men will join in.
Therefore, the reactionary Tea Party Movement gave the world the likes of Ted Cruz, Matt Gaetz and Sarah Palin. However, what Trump will bring is much more. It will be even more fierce. If he will get a new party or a new movement. If he will bring a new TV station, which is more direct and insincere compared to Fox News. God knows, but if the Tea Party was a clue to 2020 and 2021.
Surely, that will be nothing compared to the masses that will join in the MAGA and “Stop The Steal” and whatnot now. These folks will be off the hinges and have no pity. These folks will not even conceal it and they have proven that. They have been allowed to thrive during this Presidency and will be much bigger danger in 2021 when Biden gets in-office.
Biden have to rule while these groups and while Trump vile them-up. There will be reactions and will be merciless means. Yes, the rallies and speeches now seems like rambling incoherent nonsense. However, that will not stop them. These folks will continue to battle, to confront and find means to get a return.
Trump will use this support for monetary gains and to be relevant. He will boost this as much as possible and use this as a stepping stone. Because, he needs some leafs of hope to cling-on too. Not that its anything good or positive for America as whole. Nevertheless, when has that ever been the case with this man? Never, right?
So, he just continues the negative spiral and wants to thrive on it. The GOP is playing along and letting him do so. We still don’t know the effects or if these will continue all through. However, the Tea Party built a momentum and made people’s careers. Why shouldn’t Trump do the same now. As he has been the President and can usher in his own. Even if it is despicable and disgusting as it gets. Because, there is where he has his base.
He will build something along the lines of Charles Lindberg and his America First Committee (AFC). That is where Trump belongs, the “alt-right” and white supremacists will all cling-on to that. This is his ball-park and where he can thrive. Be their leader and their patron.
That is how things seems and the lame-duck President is playing along to it. Especially, when its reported that he invited the “Proud Boys” to the White House. That says it all. He wants to find his space and get a pay-off like he always does. That is his motivation and his means to an end. There is nothing beautiful or sincere in this. Only a political bargain for his future. Which most likely is a weird and straight up knock-off of the Tea Party Movement with some sort of sprinkles of hate and racism. Peace.
