When Tea Parties Attack


This video from a tax day Tea Party in South Carolina is making the rounds on the Internet. Republican Congressman Gresham Barrett voted for the bailout bill, and hoo-boy that did not go over well when he tried to speak. I won’t describe the video any further, just see for yourself. He gets points for persistence, at least.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
