Tea Party leader convicted of raping daughter

It's more crickets from the pop-up media, as yet another of the Tea Party's high fliers goes down in disgrace.

Charles Dyer - a Tea Party leader in Oklahoma who is also a member of the far-right Oath Keepers - has now been convicted of raping his own daughter. A jury has recommended a sentence of 30 years.

Throughout the trial, right-wing organizations supported Dyer, claiming he was the victim of government persecution. Dyer himself has threatened violence against cops and court officials.

It turns out though that Dyer had woes even before the Tea Party got off the ground. Back in 2006, he was arrested for stealing a grenade launcher from the military.

What does it say about the Tea Party when so many of its followers were determined to assist a man who raped his own daughter? And what does it say about those in The Media who continue to support the Tea Party?
