...and one of the most shameful things that happened was the occasional praise of the Tea Party by leftists

It happened here and there. Glenn Beck was given backhanded praise as well. Yet these were the people bringing guns to demonstrations protesting the supposedly socialist policies of Obama. They would have shot down anarchists rather than join with them, yet some folks praised them for their ability to 'speak to the people'. Rancid right wing populism intersected in some folks' minds with the anti-elitist strain of punk rock culture.
