Skip to comments.IRS Apology for Tea Party Racists? Any other group called for govt's demise, GOP would have a fit

The confederacy of dunces that makes up the Republican Party leadership and Fox News want you to believe that liberal operatives at the IRS abused power -- for political purposes -- by scrutinizing conservative Tea Party affiliates applying for tax-exempt 501(c)(4) status. What has been missed in the mainstream debate on the topic is the fact that the Tea Party should have been scrutinized. Race, money, political power and extremist ideology are the smoking guns -- and it's time to follow the money trail.
President Obama chose to get ahead of the scandal, saying that targeting of conservative groups was "inexcusable." Heads are already rolling after the official inspector general's report, which forced the acting IRS commissioner to resign. Analysis on the political left and center has proven equally appeasing of GOP critics, with many liberals buying into Republican talking points. But what is being ignored is a critical truth that, from its inception, the Tea Party movement has resembled an activist organization driven by white supremacist ideology -- its sole organizing purpose being to oppose the nation's first African-American president.
What is different about the Tea Party (as opposed to more blatant radicals) is that it morphed into a pseudo-policy force whose expressed concerns were excessive government spending and debt. This gave it legitimacy among the Beltway chattering classes and, as such, the Tea Party is a well-oiled, well-funded machine that has now been surreptitiously co-opted by the Republican establishment and used to swift-boat the president on every issue from the debt ceiling to sequestration to judicial and Cabinet appointments and the jobs bill.
What does this have to do with the IRS?
If the majority of Tea Party members had been Muslim....

Yeah, they went there.....
So was this clown among the bloggers of the reich who had a quiet meeting with Obama today?
Probably didn’t need to meet with him. Sounds like he has the talking points down better than Jay Carney.
Oh, thanks, Pal. I needed a good laugh.
He has a mid- level job sewn up in the Politboro...
TEA Party called for the government’s demise? News to me.
Wyck off, Williams.
I’d suggest Edward Wyckoff Williams google “Julius Streicher”. Different races, same thought process.
I guess one should not be surprised when a lying piece of garbage, lies.
Now I understand Yahoo’s acquisition of Tumblr...
Yup! That’s him. A racist bigot. What a puddle of puke.
There he goes again, trying to establish moral equivalency between a group which exists to protect the constitution and an assortment of groups trying to subvert it in favor of all powerful government without our constitutional limitations.
Real brave gestapo people we have among the IRS /sarc
You think that was funny?
Economically, Could Obama Be Americas Best President?
Exactly. They don’t need to meet to get talking points because they are connected with the democrat hive mind. This stuff has been pounded into their brains from Head Start onward. The same 20 or so talking points over and over assembled to fit any scenario in summation notation.
They are like the Formics.
Where's the barf alert?
No room. I had to shorten the headline quite a bit as it is.
Sorry if I’m borrowing somebody else’s thunder, but:
The oath I took was to the Constitution, not the government.
The Constitution empowers the people to change the government. That is not possible unless the people are permitted to express displeasure of the government, which may include calling for its demise. A$$hat.
I won’t get into the discussion of entitlements, corrupt Congress & federal employees and how that impedes due process...(stating the obvious in present company)
I hear most of the reporters at THE ROOT are pedophiles.
What a freak.
This has to be a product of public schools and affirmative action.
‘racist’...that’s rich coming from a professional @ being black.
what is being ignored is a critical truth that, from its inception, the Tea Party movement has resembled an activist organization driven by white supremacist ideology -- its sole organizing purpose being to oppose the nation's first African-American president.He says nothing about the TEA Party, because he doesnt - wouldnt - actually know anybody who would associate with it. He is talking about a negative image of himself, just with white and black reversed.
Williams, do you have ANY proof, beyond your own assertion, to back up such an outrageous claim?
He has a right to his opinion, and everyone else is racist.
