3. Of course. Same people in many cases, same personality

types born in newer generations. The tea partiers were a John Birch redux, as is most of the populist trumpster movement with its nationalism, racism, conspiracism, religious underpinnings, fear and resentment of change, etc. Instead of Russia as the great enemy that must be defeated, though, they're focused mainly inward on American liberals/Democrats.

No accident. Divide and conquer the electorate has been working very well for their handlers.

4. The John Birch Society's fingerprints have been all over the Tea Party movement from the beginning.

They never went away, they just morphed into the Heritage Foundation, the National Review, Freedom Works, Judicial Watch, the Cato Institute, et al.
