A Note from Mel on the Tea Party Movement and Why We Need to Know about the Origins of Christian Fundamentalism in the US to Understand It

Too many Americans think the Tea-Party appeared from nowhere like Athena from the head of Zeus, fully grown and armed for battle. In fact, the Tea-Party and other contemporary rightwing political movements have their roots in the rise of fundamentalist Christianity in the 1970s (where Holy Terror begins). To understand what's happening now is to understand what happened then.

Even a primary founder of the Tea-Party, Karl Denninger, has condemned the movement for "being hijacked by the very people it was protesting and is now obsessed with guns, gays and God." What better pitchman could we have than a Tea-Party founder who recognizes that the old religious right is back disguised as something new.

Karl Rove and the fundamentalist Christian right did not disappear when Obama's Democrats took power. They've just waited patiently in the wings determined to force their theocracy upon us. I can't believe how quickly they've recovered power. They're back and until we see exactly where they came from we cannot begin to know where they are taking us.
