4 Reasons The Anti-Trump Resistance Won’t Win Like The Tea Party Did

Not likely to win hearts and minds.

For all the similarities of situation and tactics, there are several reasons why ‘the Resistance’ is unlikely to succeed as the Tea Party did.

In the wake of the 2008 election, Democrats had won the presidency. They held 59 Senate seats and a 76-person majority in congress. There was talk of a permanent Democratic majority, and the GOP appeared to be in complete, powerless disarray. In response, a grassroots protest movement emerged. Considered more or less a joke at first, the Tea Party would change the face of American politics. And just eight years later, it would help restore Republican political power.

Now, as Democrats face the dark political wilderness, they too have launched a protest movement, loosely referred to as “The Resistance.”

    Start with little things. The Tea Party was famous for picking up any garbage at their rallies. They did it because it was right.

      Yes, totally the opposite of any gathering of progressives.

    The Tea Party didn’t change hearts and minds. Ted Cruz would have lost against Hilalry Clinton. And that’s the primary reason The Resistance will achieve nothing.

    Look at those faces, they reely got the sadz.

    I especially agree on point 1. Internet SJWs are frequently known to get into huge internet slap fights over “privilege” and “oppression”, and they are little different in real life. They are so obsessed with their identity politics that they will drop everything and fight over who is the most “oppressed” amongst them.
