Lyda Loudon, 17 founded Tea Party Youth at age 14, she said on the Palin Update with Kevin Scholla. She is a public speaker and edits Reality Times. Loudon said she is working alongside our parents and grandparents to restore our country, and consistently tries to get her friends involved. She was bullied for being a conservative and said being a political activist is much tougher. Loudon said she has a thick skin. The daughter of Dr. Gina Loudon, adviser to American Grizzlies United, and John Loudon a Senator and former Representative Lyda has a solid political background. The Loudons were on Celebrity Wife Swap prior to Bristol Palin being on the show.
Genesis of Tea Party Youth
Loudon’s Tea Party Youth was born in St. Louis where the family once lived. “It founded me, more than I founded it,” she said. Loudon said she relates very well to millennials like Bristol, Willow, and Piper Palin. Loudon’s goal is to educate her contemporaries on civic responsibility. She said “closed-mindedness, which is admired and glorified” is her biggest challenge. Loudon has had run-ins with liberal teachers implementing revisionist curricula. But many of her peers who listened went on to start chapters of Tea Party Youth or found their own organizations.
She said more than politics, the culture war is going to make or break conservative success. Loudon is heavily focused on infiltrating pop culture as Gov. Palin directed us to do. She said, film, TV, and radio are the key places where indoctrination occurs.
Loudon said she enjoyed being on Wife Swap, but her parents were attacked – including death threats – for every line on the show.
Tea Party Youth is planning a major “celebration of freedom” event in Florida. She is also working on a film industry project, is a writer and student. She already has college credits. Loudon can followed on Twitter at @teapartyyouth and @lydaloudon
