Are the teabaggers confused?

According to this article, the Boston Tea Party was not a protest against high taxes; it was a protest against taxation without representation. It states the protest occurred after the price of taxed tea was reduced to undercut the price of smuggled tea. In other words, they were revolting to pay higher prices.

According to the teabaggers' website, the purpose of their movement is to reduce taxes and government spending.

Am I missing something?
