Richard Blaine: I read the report. It demonstrates a clear bias towards certain policy positions which is in violation of IRS standards. The scandal is that the Congress has been investigating these allegations since 2011 and the IRS has consistently denied it. The cover up is more incriminating than the original mistake.


I wondered how long it would take an official internal investigation released to the public to be called "a coverup."

Doctor Funkenstein: Eh, it's bullshiat that the baggers were singled out and it sounds like the IRS will rightfully pay for it and get their act together. That said, the tea party members and supporters can still go suck shiat from a giraffe's dick for being the destructive, ignorant assholes that they are.


I'm pretty sure that's not how Giraffes work.

Witty_Retort: cman: Its OK that Tea Party groups were targeted because hey they denied a liberal group tax exepmt

With the 25% retraction rate, it seems to have been a goo targeting.
The moral of the story is that 0 TEA Party groups were denied their exemption.

Bukkake?

FarkedOver: mistrmind: Well Obama is creating a larger and larger government. So big that he himself can no longer control it. In that case, it begs the question, how strong he is as a leader? (Answer: Not very, if at all). Also it's strange that this was taking place during the election year and specifically against those that are his enemies. It reeks of McCarthyism.

Then we can go back to how during his campaign he promised "transparency" in his administration yet we have a constant barrage of cover ups for "Fast and Furious" and Benghazi.

Are you really comparing Tea Party members to people that were persecuted by McCarthy?  Wow.....


The comparison to Senator McCarthy's actions is sufficient to identify the post as a "troll". Actual Tea Party members would not associate McCarthyism with unjust persecution, as they believe Senator McCarthy to be an unfairly maligned hero who fought to protect the United States of America from a very real and encroaching communist menace.

This. I am never for profiling, but it looks like things are being taken care of properly. I do love the delicious irony of the Teabaggers applying for welfare queen status. If you're tax exempt do you get an Obama phone?

xanadian: cman: Will this finally shut people up and make them admit that the IRS farked up?

Yes, but the IRS is governed by the Department of the Treasury, which is led by the Secretary of the Treasury, who has President Obama as his boss.

Some people have the mentality that because Obama is the "captain of his ship," that he must bear the brunt of any wrongdoing by his subordinates.  It's like Star Trek 6 all over again.

ShadowKamui: Fascism is fascism regardless of if its wearing a red or a blue shirt. Cheering on the deliberate harassment of your political enemies and assuming free speech only means speech you like are not exactly ideals of a democracy


I'll admit that the profiling doesn't bother me. We have an actual, honest-to-god Tea Party caucus in Congress.

Why WOULDN"T the IRS single those out for investigation into whether or not they were created for political purpose? I wouldn't expect "Liberal PAC to elect Democrats" to be approved without some additional scrutiny either.

As someone said in one of the other threads, this was like driving through a DUI checkpoint while smoking a hand rolled tobacco cigarette in a car covered in pro-weed bumper stickers, and then acting indignant because the cop leaned in to take a really deep sniff before waving you through.

clkeagle: A Dark Evil Omen: You know who else gave minor additional scrutiny to 501 applications before accepting them, thus not only allowing the groups to carry on with their operations but also granting them tax-exempt status?

The, uh, previous manager assigned to that Cincinnati office? And the one before that? And the one before that?


That's right, Hitler! Mike Hitler, the previous manager assigned to that office.

Can you name one group that was denied tax-exempt status in all of this? One? And can you please explain why that is fascism?

Don't you dare joke about that.

Interestingly, the only group that saw its status denied (for 10 of its chapters) was Emerge America, which works to elect Democratic women to office.

This is Obama's Waterloo!
