Rep. Jim McDermott(D-WA) Blames Tea Party for IRS Corruption, Tyranny!
By John W. Lillpop
Most sane people, occasionally including President Barack Obama, other leading Democrats, as well as the incoming director of the IRS, all agree that the ongoing targeting scandal involving the IRS vendetta against conservative organizations was an unmitigated outrage, perhaps unconstitutional and or illegal, definitely un-American, and in need of urgent remedial action to assure there is no repeat.
Mind you, the operative words are SANE people.
On the other hand, you have the likes of Rep. Jim McDermott, far- left loon from Washington state, who has dedicated his miserable life to lowering the bar on expectations for ethics and fairness from government agencies.
At a House Committee hearing on IRS misconduct, Rep. McDermott used his bullying mouth in a failed attempt to shift the blame for the IRS crimes to the victims, those conservative organizations with the audacity to use terms like “Patriot” and “Tea Party” in their applications for tax exempt status.
McDermott’s pitiful slobbering on behalf of the fund-raising wing of the DNC—the IRS—was an embarrassment, not only to the good people of Washington, but to each and every American who has been in the clutches of uncontrolled tyranny such as that practiced by an out-of-control IRS.
As reported at the reference, McDermott chased common sense and intellectual honesty from the Hill with inane comments like this:
“Each of your groups is highly political,” the congressman said. “From opposing the President’s healthcare reform, to abortion restrictions, to gay marriage, you’re all entrenched in some of the most controversial political issues in this country – and with your applications you are asking the American public to pay for that work. Many of you host and endorse candidates. The line between permitted political activity and non-permitted political activity can be very fine, and it’s important that tax payers know which side you fall on.”
The obvious rejoinder is to ask the bloated Representative how in the hell it was that a Barack Obama family member was able to apply for, and receive, tax-free status within 30 days? Or how it was that the Lois Lerner gangsters did not target liberal organizations “entrenched in controversial political issues”?
Luck of the draw, Representative McDermott?
With any luck at all, the good people of Washington state will come to their collective senses in November 2014, Representative, and send you to retire in much deserved misery!
