‘Tea Party Envy’ and the Academic Elite

Posted on | January 14, 2011 | 4 Comments

“We’ve long seen how tea party envy has been a common theme for the Obama era . . . and in [Harvard University history professor Jill] Lepore’s interview we see the lament that academic elites have failed to tap the tea party’s populist vibrancy. And so, when people and movements find themselves failing to be on the right side of history . . . they lash out. They attack and disparage. And they engage in libelous accusations that work to destroy any efforts at civil debate they purportedly claim to champion.”
Professor Donald Douglas, American Power, “Harvard’s Jill Lepore Ties Jared Loughner to Tea Party ‘Constitution Worship’ “
