Although their financial resources were minimal, the Tea party types presented a
real threat to the Obama thugocracy by their ability to organize. Organizing is
a double edged concept, isn't it?The Tea party groups had to be
singled out, marginalized and destroyed, per the Alinsky "Rule for
Radicals" strategy. And Obama's forces of evil did so. Maybe he did
not explicitly order it, but there is no doubt he condoned, and even applauded
it.The intimidation power of the IRS can never be doubted, and its
use in that way is more vile than the open intimidation of the KGB or other
totalitarian police states.This incident is a low point in modern
American history, worse than Watergate, or anything that Clinton did. It may
not be impeachable, but only because it was not provably done at Obama's
orders.If ever there was proof that we must rein in the potentially
abusive power of government to preserve our freedom, this is it.I
hope the Tea Party people will be brave enough to reorganize and take back our
country from the thugocracy in the next elections.
It's funny that DN should mention Watergate in the above post. Nixon of
course never came to trial by the Senate, but was, in fact, accused of using the
IRS as a club against his many "enemies". As for the IRS, it does have
considerable power given to it to prevent assets from being hidden tax-free in
places like the Cayman Islands. But comparing it to the old KGB is at least bad
hyperbole. As for the "thugocracy", please may we be spared from rule by
Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann and Mike Lee.
"rare displays of overtly partisan activities"That
conclusion can only be reached if one uses an extremely narrow definition of
Mike Lee accompanied by Ted Cruz, Michele Bachmann, and Rand Paul. Oh, Utah,
what have you done?
marky, so if nixon did it, it's ok for your boy to use the irs too?
thoughtful and civil. BTW, Harry is really terrific.
