Troofers: We Started the Tea Party Movement
Pointing to this video:
Of course, invoking the Boston Tea Party is centuries old, while Troofers memories get fuzzy about when it actually was that Brad Pitt dumped Jennifer Anniston for Angelina Jolie. For example, does anybody remember the "tea-bag revolt" of 1988? Quoting from the book The Elephant in the Room (page 59):
In 1988 the House of Representatives voted to increase its pay by 51 percent, to $135,000 from $89,500; a talk show host in Detroit, Roy Fox, launched a "tea-bag revolt" (the anniversary of the Boston Tea Party was coming up), where citizens sent tea bags to Congress as a protest, demanding that the pay hike be repealed. The protest worked, and as organizers dumped 160,000 tea bags in front of the White House, Congress withdrew the pay raise."
