a member of a dying political protest movement created because a Black man was elected U.S. President, 

The Tea Party was not created because of Barrack Obama. Such an assertion completely misunderstands the origins. The movement was a reaction to government bailouts started under Bush. Fiscal conservatism (managing deficits and avoiding big government policies/bailouts) was the driving force. It continued into the Obama years because he pursued those same policies.
