Boston Tea Party - Tea Party protests - Netflix

The Tea Party protests were a series of well-funded protests throughout the United States that began in early 2009. The paid protests were part of the larger political Tea Party movement. Among other events, protests were held on: February 27, 2009, to protest the Troubled Assets Relief Program (TARP) U.S. financial system bailouts signed by President George W. Bush in October 2008, and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 stimulus legislation signed by President Barack Obama; April 15, 2009, to coincide with the annual U.S. deadline for submitting tax returns, known as Tax Day; July 4, 2009, to coincide with Independence Day; September 12, 2009, to coincide with the anniversary of the day after the September 11 attacks; November 5, 2009, in Washington, D.C. to protest health insurance reform; March 14–21, 2010, in D.C. during the final week of debate on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Most Tea Party activities have since been focused on opposing efforts of the Obama Administration, and on recruiting, nominating, and supporting candidates for state and national elections. The name “Tea Party” is a reference to the Boston Tea Party, whose principal aim was to protest taxation without representation. Tea Party protests evoked images, slogans and themes from the American Revolution, such as tri-corner hats and yellow Gadsden “Don't Tread on Me” flags. The letters T-E-A have been used by some protesters to form the backronym “Taxed Enough Already”. Commentators promoted Tax Day events on various blogs, Twitter, and Facebook, while the Fox News Channel regularly featured televised programming leading into and promoting various protest activities. Reaction to the tea parties included counter-protests expressing support for the Obama administration, and dismissive or mocking media coverage of both the events and their promoters.

April 15, 2009 is said to have been the day that had the largest number of tea party demonstrations reportedly in more than 750 cities. Estimates of protesters and locations varied. The Christian Science Monitor reported on the difficulties of calculating a cumulative turnout and said some estimates state that over half a million Americans participated in the protests, noting, “experts say the counting itself often becomes politicized as authorities, organizers, and attendees often come up with dramatically different counts.” Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform, estimated that at least 268,000 attended in over 200 cities. Statistician Nate Silver, manager of FiveThirtyEight.com, has said that a cumulative crowd size estimate from credible sources was of 311,460 attendees in 346 cities, which accounted for all capitols and major cities little noticeable or no reliable media coverage in other protests could have contributed to a lower number of attendees and locations. The largest event, in Atlanta, drew between an estimated 7,000 to 15,000 protestors. Some of the gatherings drew only dozens. On April 15, 2009, a Tea Party protest outside the White House was moved after a box of tea bags was hurled over the White House fence. Police sealed off the area and evacuated some people. The Secret Service brought out a bomb-detecting robot, which determined the package was not a threat. Approximately one thousand people had demonstrated, several waved placards saying “Stop Big Government” and “Taxation is Piracy”.
