IRS Targeted Conservative Groups, Tea Party, Patriots & Non-Profit Groups that Criticized the Obama Government and Sought to Educate Americans About the U.S. Constitution
If it looks like an enemies list, walks like an enemies list and talks like an enemies list … guess what America, IT’S AN ENEMIES LIST.
How bad is the recent revelations that the IRS purposely and willfully targeted Conservative groups like the Tea Party and organizations with “tae party” or “patriot” in their name? Even the not so-conservative Washington Post is coming out swinging against the Internal Revenue Service and the Obama Administration. The IRS tried to preempt the damning news on Friday that the they were targeting conservative groups, in an effort to get ahead of the story that was going to be much, much worse. Thus, the so-called IRS apology that they had been doing this since 2012 was pretty much BS as it was only the tip of the iceberg. We then found out that high ranking IRS officials knew since 2011. We are now finding out that the IRS targeted Conservative non-profits that dared used their First Amendment rights if an organization criticize the Obama government or dared sought to educate Americans on the United States Constitution. HUH? This is still America, isn’t it? Sorry, but even the liberals have an issue with this as it looks extremely “Nixonian”.
At various points over the past two years, Internal Revenue Service officials singled out for scrutiny not only groups with “tea party” or “patriot” in their names but also nonprofit groups that criticized the government and sought to educate Americans about the U.S. Constitution, according to documents in an audit conducted by the agency’s inspector general.
The documents, obtained by The Washington Post from a congressional aide with knowledge of the findings, show that the IRS field office in charge of evaluating applications for tax-exempt status decided to focus on groups making statements that “criticize how the country is being run” and those that were involved in educating Americans “on the Constitution and Bill of Rights.”
AMERICA … THE IRS WAS TARGETING THOSE THAT WOULD DARE EDUCATE OTHERS ON THE US CONSTITUTION!!! WHAT THE HELL HAS THIS COUNTRY BECOME UNDER PRESIDENT BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA? HOW’S THAT FOR SOME HOPE AND CHANGE.
The IRS tried to preempt this PR nightmare with a half-hearted apology and stated, do not worry though, even though we only targeted Conservative organizations like the Tea Party, it was not motivated by politics or political bias. How can anyone say this with a straight face? The single most feared government agency acting like the “Gestapo” to intimidate those that are against the current administration and we are supposed to believe that it was not political. Really? Just curious, how many non-profits with “progressive” were targeted? Ah, nearly none.
Folks on the LEFT and the RIGHT are concerned over this situation with the IRS. As Susan Collins, the Republican Senator from Maine stated on CNN over the weekend, “This is truly outrageous. And it contributes to the profound distrust that the American people have in government.” She also stated, ”And I think that it’s very disappointing that the president hasn’t personally condemned this and spoken out.” Michigan Rep. Mike Rogers told “Fox News Sunday.” “I don’t care if you’re a conservative, a liberal, a Democrat or a Republican, this should send a chill up your spine. It needs to have a full investigation.”
Just how bad is it when the WAPO says, You Betcha the IRS should be investigated?
It’s just a coincidence that all this started just after the 2010 midterm elections when the Tea Party became a major player and inflicted a “shellacking” on the Democrat party and Barack Obama. Coincidence indeed. Also, most TRANSPARENT presidency is history, eh? But there is nothing politically motivated about any of this.
