The Tea Party--also indicative of middle class bourgeois capitalism

Because it's not all people acting against their class interests---there have to be people who are receptive to it, and guess what, the mix of Christianity, rancid patriotism, anti-statism, and capitalism that typified the tea party movement also represents the mindset of many lower level and possibly mid level managers at small and medium sized businesses---the kind of morons who read nothing but pop-management theory and spout off about the virtues of the free market all the time.

So in a way, the Tea Party wasn't simply an aberration but part of what the U.S. encourages to a certain extent. If you echo the belief in Christianity, saluting the flag, and pro-business beliefs of your superiors, you can get ahead fast in certain places.
