In recent weeks, Democrats, increasingly desperate to paint the IRS scandal, in Barack Obama’s own words, as “phony”, have repeated the claim that the IRS targeted BOTH conservative and liberal groups seeking tax exempt status. That claim is a lie – and a just released report from NPR (of all places) proves it…
IRS scoreboard: 100 percent of “targeted” liberal groups were approved, conservatives languished
…A House Ways and Means Committee staff analysis of the applications of 111 conservative and progressive groups applying for tax exempt status found conservative applicants faced, “more questions, more denials, more delays,” says committee Chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich. That is, when the IRS sent groups letters asking for further information, conservative groups were asked more questions — on average, three times more. All of the groups with “progressive” in their name were ultimately approved, while only 46 percent of conservative groups won approval. Others are still waiting for an answer or gave up.
Right-leaning groups were asked triple the number of questions (like this, and this), and ended up getting shot down more than half the time. Lefty organizations skated by with fewer inquiries and were all approved. Let’s examine the raw numbers:
Look at that chart again reader. Look how at how much scrutiny Tea Party and Patriot affiliated groups were subjected to, and how little comparable scrutiny liberal groups were given. The numbers don’t lie – though Democrats do. They continue to try and wash the IRS scandal away with the ridiculous claim that all groups were treated the same. They weren’t, and therein we find the frightening foundations of this very real scandal. The Obama administration orchestrated a massive and powerful campaign of intimidation against the Tea Party to help ensure election victory in 2012. This campaign was born from the Tea Party’s impressive display of political power during the 2010 Midterm Election as Republicans swept the vast majority of Congressional races and took back the House of Representatives, thus removing Nancy Pelosi as Speaker.
It is a blatant abuse of Big Government power – the likes of which only appear to be increasing at breakneck speed as a desperate Barack Obama and his investors hope to secure further victory during the 2014 Midterm Elections to allow the Obama White House little to no resistance regarding what it hopes to force down the necks of the American people in the last two years of the Obama administration.
Please share the above graphic with all you know reader, particular those who continue to parrot the claim that the IRS treated all groups the same. That is simply not the case – not by a long shot. The IRS, the same organization Barack Obama intends to have control over your healthcare, was harassing and intimidating Americans based on nothing more than political affiliation. Regardless of whether or not you voted for Barack Obama, or call yourself Republican, Democrat, or other – that kind of tyranny should scare the hell out of all of us. -UM
