Nothing says patriotic like good old-fashioned Fascism, at least according to the president of the Greater Fort Bend County Tea Party, James Ives. As reported by the Texas Tribune, Mr. Ivesí title before he joined the Tea party was quite different: the director of propaganda for the American Fascist Party (AFP). When confronted with this information, he wisely did not deny, but what he did say was far more revealing:
"From my point of view, it was all pro-Constitution, pro-America.
I never did anything. There really werenít enough people involved to be a gathering, let alone a rally. It was basically a scattering of people across the continent just complaining."
