This article does talk about some of the bigots in the movement however that is not what it is based on or in the majority there are bad apples in every movement. At its core the Tea Party is not a racist movement, but is an American political movement that advocates strict adherence to the United States Constitution, reducing U.S. government spending and taxes, and reduction of the U.S. national debt and federal budget deficit.
Sending me a link to a credible source would provide more validation to your argument (just for future reference). And I'm aware of the Tea Party's goals for eliminating a larger government (similar to the Republican party) and bigot doesn't necessarily mean you're a racist: it's definition transcends to multiple categories of someone being completely close minded. A majority of activates in the Tea Party believe this to be a Christian Nation, have accused Obama of being a Muslim, and--along with the Republican Party--have told multiple people that Obama is a socialist. And you assuming I get my information solely from TV can be said about you believing everything you see on the internet.
