IRS Apologizes for Harassing Rightwing Charity Organizations

Last year, leading up to the 2012 election, the IRS conducted a relentless witch hunt against rightwing hate groups charity organizations that were trying to influence the election.  If the IRS discovered that these groups were political rather than charitable, the groups would lose their tax-exempt status.

According to a few harebrained IRS employees, if an organization has the words “Patriot” or “Tea Party” in its name, this organization might not actually be a charity group.

What???  Oh come on, how paranoid can you get?!?

The liberal media has spent the past year demonizing these poor Tea Party groups, and then the IRS started terrorizing them.  And now the IRS has admitted it was wrong.  As it turns out, these secretive organizations that donated hundreds of millions of dollars in anonymous political contributions — charity groups are not required to disclose their donors — really ARE charitable organizations after all.

And just what is so far fetched about that?  What, a word like “Patriot” or “Tea Party” is supposed to be some sort of “red flag” or something???

I happen to know that Patriots For Guns has an incredible outreach program for troubled youth.  And God only knows where thousands of inner city residents would be today, were it not for the Impeach Obama! soup kitchen.

If you — or any loved ones — are in danger of losing your home, please be aware that Obamacare Gonna Kill Your Grandma operates a homeless shelter near you.

Those are just three of the countless thousands of patriotic charity groups who have been persecuted by Obama’s thugs.  And don’t forget Nazi Skinheads for Better Textbooks, the Queer-Bashers R Us job training clinic — well, the list goes on and on.

Darrell Issa and Mitch McConnell have already promised to hold thorough investigations into this unconscionable witch hunt by the IRS.  Of course we all know that Barack Hussein Obama is the evil mastermind, but we should at least go through the motions of staging an impartial investigation.

My heart goes out especially to Karl Rove, whose many good works among the sick and the poor are well known. I mean, there have been any number of times when he's been exposed to a pack of those takers and didn't even sneer, much less kick any of them out of his way. And when the Scouts did a food drive, I heard he donated a whole can of minced turnips.

Let's get real. If those tea party and "patriot" organizations aren't running political operations, they have nothing to fear from the IRS. If I'm not mistaken there was some grousing about this months ago, and it came to nothing except that some lower-level IRS people were told not to do that, unfortunately.

What's going on now is that Republicans are trying their best to distract from their scorched-earth obstruction and complete lack of accomplishment on the economy, jobs, a budget compromise, infrastructure, climate change or anything but hacking away at women's fundamental human rights, and bitching and moaning about Obamacare. They are now trying to create the appearance of scandal with a perfect storm of Benghazi bloviating and crap like this.

BTW, Erik, this is the same IRS that, during the Bush years, was ordered to lay off the top few percenters and concentrate on all those tax-dodging and cheating folks trying to get by on a bit better than minimum wage incomes.

Erik: Yup, same people. They have zero principles of any kind; all they care about is destroying the "enemy" at any cost.

SW: You're right about tea party groups having nothing to fear if they have nothing to hide. I think all organization applying for tax-exempt status should be "burdened" with questions and forms to fill out. It's the IRS' job to make sure an organization won't be engaging in political activity at the public's expense.
