- Most Insidious
Hmmm....Are mostly all political forums ran by the Tea Party? Most have rules that you type in English only.The kluckers and the skkkin heads have always been there. Always will be most likely. However with a Democrat in office, and a black one at that, they kept their heads down. There aren't enough of them to stop an Obama from getting elected. Even in the south, where I grew up, the worst of them are the minority. Obama was already accused of using the IRS to audit conservative 503 groups. The real klan wasn't about to stick their heads up and draw attention to themselves. The last thing they wanted was the gubmint to notice em and come lookin' round !!
Trump has for what ever reason emboldened them. They feel like they can come out of hiding and show their face with little serious repercussion. They are still a minority, its' just for what ever reason they feel like it's currently OK to crawl out form under their rocks and, like roaches in the dark, sneak out from behind the baseboards they usually cower behind.
As for the Tea Party ......

I'm going to have to take issue with the word "predominately". I'd go with somewhat and even at that it has since been pretty much proven to be fraudulent.
I'll be happy to discuss the silly notion that the Tea Party was primarily motivated by fiscal conservatism.No I don't have a link, I just want to discuss something that is periodically on my mind.
Theory: Trump brought all the racists, fascists, KKK, white supremacists out of the wood work. Don't ask me who said this specifically, but it has been said a lot.
If that is true, then how did Obama win? Where were those people to help prevent a black Democrat from winning... twice?
Wouldn't that be their go-to time to march?
I understand the Tea Party existed but that was predominately political by fiscal conservatives.
Where were these racists when the "not so fiscal conservative... racists..." like the Tea Party formed?Trump ran as a blatant racist, and it worked. It worked by allowing him to win some rust belt states that would usually go to the Democrats by the skin of his teeth.
It's not really complicated. You know what happened. You watched it with your own two eyes.
