Tea Party: Don’t Group Us with Wall Street Protesters

By    |   Friday, 07 Oct 2011 01:00 PM

The rise of the Occupy Wall Street protests has drawn some media comparisons with the beginnings of the tea party movement. But tea party leaders are having none of it, Politico reports.

Those making noise on Wall Street “don’t even know why they’re out there protesting,” Amy Kremer, chairwoman of the Tea Party Express told the news service. “I don’t think it’s the left’s answer to the tea party movement, and there are a lot of people there that don’t support Barack Obama. I think they’re just unhappy people that don’t know really what they want.”

The tea party has advanced beyond Occupy Wall Street’s antics, Kremer said. “The tea party movement has matured, and we have learned that having a rally, it’s great, it attracts people. But it doesn’t affect change just because you’re out on the lawn for 20 days and 20 nights.”
