QUESTION ASKED: Is the Anti-Trump ‘Resistance’ the New Tea Party?

It’s hard to say. Although I can say that the aftermath of the recent “Resistance” protest ended with violence and arson, and that the typical Tea Party protest ended with the grounds tidier than when the protestors arrived.

UPDATE: As an early and enthusiastic Tea Party supporter (and occasional speaker, too) I thought the mocking tone of my “hard to say” would have been obvious. Judging by the comments, it wasn’t — and for that I apologize.

Just to be clear then, the answer to The Atlantic’s cringeworthy question is a disdainful “No.”
