The Internal Revenue Service has apologized for targeting groups with tea party or patriot in their names.
An inspector generals report scheduled to be released later this week reportedly says the IRS also targeted groups that criticized the government and sought to educate Americans about the U.S. Constitution.
And if that werent bad enough, the IRS reportedly released conservative groups confidential information to the independent (that is, liberal) news organization ProPublica.
But Bette Midler sees no reason for concern. No reason at all.
She took to Twitter last night to announce (in all caps) that she thinks what the IRS did is just great, because in her view political organizations are not legitimate 501(c)(4)s.
And if a conservative administration targeted liberal 501(c)(4) organizations like Organizing for Action, that would be just fine, right Bette?
These fascists are the enemies of equal protection.
That knife has two edges Bette.
Politics and cheating go a bit hand in hand but, this is beyond the pale.
No way you would feel the same if they had their focus on your team.
They should be absolutely non-partisan
These idiots don’t realize that they are enabling tyranny to eat the last.
She just set herself up for similar treatment when the worm turns. What a maroon!
I have always thought that she was the fugliest performer in show business. Now she is showing she is the dumbest too. That knife cuts both ways bitch.
A local radio station has a blog , a couple of guys praising IRS for targeting Tea Party. Incredible hatred for other people.
> These fascists are the enemies of equal protection.
Until the blade is turned against them. Just another liberal performer that wants some attention because her career is in the dump. Milder can expect to lose a large audience over this but It’s not like she has much of one to begin with. The gays seem to love her. Probably because she looks like a transvestite and thats on her good days.
Is she still alive? I thought she folded in on herself years ago...
I wonder how Bette would feel if the IRS looked more closely into her tax returns when she was a “musician” working in the San Fran bath houses?
I’m thinking there was probably a bit of, um undisclosed earnings here and there.
These are the people the GOPe are scared of, batcrazy leftists!
I’m glad these wackos hate Conservatives hope they all out themselves.
“HOW CAN A POLITICAL ORGANIZATION BE CALLED NON-PROFIT THAT PROMOTES THE GENERAL WELFARE”
I don’t know Bette, why don’t you call George Soros and ask him how Media Matters qualifies?
i could see her saying, in early 1940s, arent those brown shirts awesome.
Oh, come on. You haven't forgotten Babs Streisand faxing hand scrawled notes to Tom Daschle's office and spelling his name wrong on them, have you?
She also thought Krystallnacht was one big party!
Surely she owns a pressure cooker or two. That’s probably her next “statement”.
I suppose that’s one way to get on the IRS honor roll.
