    This is why these idiots can't be taken seriously. If you have to resort to wearing a mask to hide your identity, all it shows is that you are nothing but a bunch of lazy cowards. Can you imagine Thomas Jefferson, Sam Adams, et al wearing masks? HA! Cowards all of them.

    Was there a True Indian Disguise?

    On many illustrations of the Tea Party, both contemporary and historic, the group of patriots on the ships is shown wearing large feathered headdresses. Other illustrations show only moderate Indian disguise. So how did patriots actually masked their identity?

    Making a full Indian headdress takes considerable amount of time and materials. Traditionally, such attire was reserved only for the most powerful and influential among the tribe, which made them difficult to come by even at the time when the Tea Party occurred. Besides the majority of the Tea Party 116 participants appeared to have a short notice of the planned operation, which made it even less likely that they had time to prepare elaborate costumes.

    But their faces were not obscured. Same with the modern Tea Party. Yes, many dress up as Founders or Uncle Sam but none cover their faces.

    You know what? I've seen some of their faces. I prefer the masks be left on.
