The Billionaires’ Tea Party (DVD)

August 22, 2011

Surprisingly, it took an Australian – filmmaker Taki Oldham – to put together the documentary that exposes how the Koch brothers created the Tea Party.

Although the Tea Party member of the documentaries – ranging from demented birthers to calm pawns – view themselves as being a spontaneous uprising, “The Billionaires’ Tea Party” makes a persuasive case that this movement – saturated in corporate media coverage – was orchestrated strategically by right-wing organizations, most notably Americans for Prosperity, the chief front operation for the Kochs.

With access to Americans for Prosperity meetings and “straightforward” interviews with key figures in Americans for Prosperity, Oldham builds the case that the Tea Party was anything but a spontaneous uprising.

For those who still doubt – or need to be reminded – how a well-financed right-wing infrastructure is manipulating democracy through the use of emotional hot buttons to advance a plutocratic agenda, this is a must-see documentary.
