Salon's Michael Lind: "Local Notables," Tea Party Demographics, and the "Newest Right"

The Tea Party

Michael Lind's article at Salon is linked below.

Michael Lind: Here's the "Newest Right," the Tea Party

"But right now most conservative white local notables in the South and elsewhere in the country don’t want black and Latino support. They would rather disenfranchise blacks and Latinos than compete for their votes. And they would rather dismantle the federal government than surrender their local power and privilege.
The political strategy of the Newest Right, then, is simply a new strategy for the very old, chiefly-Southern Jefferson-Jackson right."
