Thom Hartmann discovers the untold story of the first Boston Tea Party!!
In London, Thom Hartmann found and bought the only first-person account of the 1773 Boston Tea Party in existence.
George R. T. Hewes coined the phrase, 'the Boston Tea Party' and authored the history of the party that led to the American colonists' overthrow of the East India Company puppets, their British colonial rulers.
The original tea party was caused by the granting of corporate tax cuts to the biggest corporation in the world, the East India Company. The rulers of the colonies wanted to kill their indigenous colonial competition who were also trying to sell tea against the wishes of the global mega-corporation.
The American experiment in democracy was the result of that revolution.
Time to wake today's tea partiers up from their nightmare and America's with the real story, it's great!
There is a horrifically rich irony in the fact that this word is getting out by way of Russia Today, rather than American commercial media.
What's wrong with this picture?! Nothing, I think, since ePluribusMedia was born of the effort to short-circuit and overthrow the existing order, that of media controlled by the interests of the monied corporations.
Sounds like Thomas Jefferson to me!
Pass it on!
