Michelle Malkin: Tea Party update: Revolution is brewing
The people participating in these Tea Parties understand the purpose of the Boston Tea Party and the American Revolution.
One irony here is that Barack Obama completely misunderstands the purpose of the Boston Tea Party and the American Revolution.
But my journey is part of a larger journey – one shared by all who’ve ever sought to apply the values of their faith to our society. It’s a journey that takes us back to our nation’s founding, when none other than a UCC church inspired the Boston Tea Party and helped bring an Empire to its knees.

Our founders fought for independence from a tyrannical and oppressive government in favor of freedom and recognition of our God-given (“endowed by their Creator”) inalienable rights.
But instead of understanding that, Obama thinks it was about bringing “an Empire to its knees”.
Our Founders didn’t fight to bring the British Empire to its knees. We didn’t care what they did anywhere else in the world. It wasn’t about ending the British Empire, it was about declaring our independence from it. It wasn’t about destroying an existing government, it was about breaking free and creating a new one.
So, why does Obama think it was about bringing an Empire to its knees? Because he is a Marxist.
Our country’s founding Revolution exalted the ideals of equality, justice, and democracy, of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all. Marxists have long hailed its progressive significance… The Communist Party today upholds the continuing struggle to realize these ideals. The revolutionary democratic traditions of the United States call for radical change… With Marxism-Leninism guiding our actions, the Communist Party strives to build the broadest unity against global capitalist imperialism now headed by U.S. imperialism, for immediate gains and reforms that benefit working people, and for a progressive democratization of the government, the economy, and society of our country on the road to and after winning socialism.
And what comes after socialism? Communism. They are, after all, the Communist Party USA.
