Storyline

After Barack Obama swept to power promising a new era of hope and change, the emergence of a citizens protest movement called the Tea Party threatened to derail his agenda. Was this uprising the epitome of grassroots democracy? Or was it an example of "astroturfing" - the creation of fake grassroots groups, designed to put corporate messages in the mouths of seemingly independent citizens? Written by Anonymous

Wonderful, enlightening documentary.
15 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

This documentary goes inside the Tea Party political movement and addresses the ethically decayed roots of its movement. It gives great insight as to the propaganda pushed by the corporations backing these "grassroots" movements of the Tea Party and its scare tactics regarding many of the laws proposed that would make the earth and its people much safer and healthier. Wonderfully enlightening, especially for those of us wondering why the Tea Partiers hold the beliefs they do. I particularly enjoyed the information regarding the source of many of the donations-- the Koch brothers-- and what companies they have their fingers dipped into without appearing to. I'll be certain to look at that even closer later to avoid supporting their dreams of destroying the planet and individual rights.
