I've written a lot about my feelings of what the Tea Party fake movement really is. I've been frustrated that I haven't been able to do the subject justice. Others have done better.
Perhaps the best documentary on how fake the Tea Party movement actually is, that retains sympathy for the honest aspirations of frustrated people drawn into that web, is The Billionaires' Tea Party, by Australian documentarian, Taki Oldham. Here he is, being interviewed by David Pakman about his work on fake grassroots movements:
And here is his hour-long documentary in HD video. It is very well done.
I recommend that you give it time to load in full screen, as the HD quality and superb editing shows and plays best that way:
Oldham's prediction that the Tea Party's billionaires will be at least a big a force in 2012 as they were in 2010 warrants close scrutiny.
Will our media be on the Koch Brothers' side or yours?
I'm not optimistic.
