IRS-Gate Bares The Ugly, Ugly Face Of The Fringe Left

'Anyway, I will be more than happy and proud of Obama if he was behind the IRS targeting these anti USA “conservative” groups. They all need to be investigated.'

Get this through your bloody head:



From the Articles of Impeachment for Richard Nixon (prepared, in part, by one Hillary Rodham):

Article 2:

Using the powers of the office of President of the United States, Richard M. Nixon, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in disregard of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has repeatedly engaged in conduct violating the constitutional rights of citizens, impairing the due and proper administration of justice and the conduct of lawful inquiries, or contravening the laws governing agencies of the executive branch and the purposed of these agencies.

This conduct has included one or more of the following:

Section 1:

He has, acting personally and through his subordinates and agents, endeavoured to obtain from the Internal Revenue Service, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, confidential information contained in income tax returns for purposed not authorized by law, and to cause, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, income tax audits or other income tax investigations to be initiated or conducted in a discriminatory manner.


OTOH, if you’re right, it will KILL Democrats in 2014…and THAT will serve YOU right.

'You must really think I give a f@$k. As long as Obama is doing all he can to investigate and rid America off these anti USA tea party groups, I am fine.'

I guess that would include sending all of us to gas chambers, too, eh?

Your whole ‘I love America and civil liberties’ schtick is a bunch of crap.

First, they came for the Tea Partiers,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Tea Partier.

Then, they came for the ‘Patriots,’
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a ‘Patriot.’

Then they came for the supporters of Israel,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a supporter of Israel.

Then, they came for lovers of the Second Amendment,

and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a lover of the Second Amendment.

Then, they came for the lovers of the First Amendment,

and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a lover of the First Amendment.

Then they came for me,
and there was no one left to speak for me.

Sucks to be ‘me,’ eh, Hal?

'And the tea party is not anti Obama correct?'

'So what if it is 'anti-Obama'?  That's not the test.  By the way, being 'anti-Obama' does not make one 'anti-USA.'

Do you remember this?

'I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration, somehow you’re not patriotic.'

- Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, Democratic Party Jefferson-Jackson-Bailey Day fund-raising dinner, Connecticut, 28 April 2003

I guess it's not unpatriotic when a Progressive does it.  It's strange.  That's what the Left says about Fascism, too!

'Why the heck did Obama fire this guy? This is the part of Obama that pisses me off.'

You just don’t get it, do you?

The IRS has violated Federal law and the civil rights of Americans. Mr Miller is going to be named in a civil rights suit.

You and your ilk’s cries for ‘fairness’ and ‘a level playing field’ are nothing but BULLSHIT.

You are also part of a very small minority of Americans…

* 57% Want IRS Offenders Jailed or Fired

* Just 16% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the IRS investigations of these groups were a coincidence

* 57% think the investigations were politically motivated

* 55% think it is at least somewhat likely that President Obama or his top aides were aware that Tea Party and other conservative groups were targeted by the IRS

If I were you, I’d stop applauding or trying to make excuses and start condemning the behaviour because the American people are not buying it. Such is only making the MAJORITY of Americans believe that Obama and/or his top aides were behind it.

Ron Radosh, a former Communist, describes people like HAL to a ‘t’:

All this is par for the course for those who grew up in the 1960s and recall the advice about freedom of speech given by the philosopher-king of the Marxist Left, the late Herbert Marcuse.

Back in those heady days, Marcuse developed the theory of “repressive tolerance.” As he explained, tolerance of the speech of those who are fascist or conservative is not acceptable for a democratic society. To liberate tolerance means “intolerance against movements from the Right and toleration of movements from the Left.” This gobbledygook, remember, was viewed by serious intellectuals as brilliant. Marcuse explained his reasoning in these words:

Surely, no government can be expected to foster its own subversion, but in a democracy such a right is vested in the people (i.e. in the majority of the people). This means that the ways should not be blocked on which a subversive majority could develop, and blocked if they are by organized repression and indoctrination, their reopening may require apparently undemocratic means. They would include the withdrawal of toleration of speech and assembly from groups and movements which promote aggressive policies, armament, chauvinism, discrimination on the grounds of race and religion, or which oppose the extension of public services, social security, medical care, etc.

Get that last point? If you criticize Obama Care, by Marcuse’s logic, you are what the Soviets called “an enemy of the people,” and the full power of government should be put into place to stop you. And were he still with us, he would be penning an op-ed praising the IRS for its clever action in denying conservative groups non-profit status.

Who would make that judgment? Perhaps it would be the people’s courts, the revolutionary assemblies, or the left-wing professoriate, which is acting on behalf of the people before they realize their duty to develop revolutionary consciousness.

Let me end on a serious note. The IRS personnel are probably not smart enough to read or even know about Herbert Marcuse. But they have acted in a way he would have been proud of, having obtained an understanding of how to act against conservatives all on their own. And, it seems, they have an unknowing ally who lives in the executive mansion on Pennsylvania Avenue.

Keep fighting your 'War on Women,' too.  It's so attractive...

'Once again I applaud the president and the attorney general for finally having the guts to investigate this anti American media outfit.
