Are You a Secret Member of the Tea Party?

o are you a secret member of the Tea Party and don't know it? Here's how to find out, and in the process discover what the Tea Party is really about. Is the mainstream media really telling the truth about the Tea Party?

Start with Rick Santelli's famous February 2009 rant on CNBC after Obama and the Congressional democrats passed the $1 trillion bailout bill and promised to pay for bad mortgages. This rant is what began catalyzing Americans into launching the true grass-roots Tea Party (4:37):

Then watch Glenn Reynolds (of INSTAPUNDIT.COM and PJTV.COM) interview the young Cincinnati Tea Party organizers to see how the Tea Party ACTUALLY got started (9:07):

And here's Bill Whittle and Andrew Klavan with some initial perspectives on what the Tea Party actually is in February 2010 at the first Tea Party Convention in Nashville (starts at about 1 minute into the video):
