Why is the Tea Party silent over Trump’s proposed Tax increases, his abandoning our allies and his lending comfort to our enemies?

Friends -A friend posed the question: Where are the Tea party Republicans? Where are these self-proclaimed patriots? Where is their outrage over Trump? 

Why aren’t Tea Party Republicans speaking out, Against Trumps proposed tax increases? Against Trumps cozying up with our longtime enemy, Russia? Against Trump stupidly releasing our allies intel to the Russians? Against Trump turning his back on our longtime allies?  
Why are these Tea Party self-proclaimed super patriots silent now?  First, The Tea Party  Republicans were with us for precisely 8 years. Those 8 years began the day President Obama took office and ended the day he left office. They were never truly against the Federal Government, or taxes. They were against having a black man in the White House. This was evidenced at their early rallies wherein they displayed openly racist signs. The moment President Obama left office, the Tea Party fell silent. 
If the self-proclaimed super patriotic Tea Party supporters were at all patriotic they would be vocally opposing Trump. If the Tea Party stood for anything they would Be loudly speaking out – Against Trumps proposed tax increases;Against Trumps cozying up with our longtime enemy, Russia; Against Trump stupidly releasing our allies intel to the Russians; and Against Trump turning his back on our longtime allies. 

The Tea party Republicans are mute on all fronts regarding Trump. The Tea Party’s continued silence verifies what many of us already knew: the Tea party was motivated far more by racism than by patriotism.
