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.
How could her head explode? There’s nothing but stale air inside.
What a sweat-hog!
Why that would be as bad as a group that receives tax funds endorsing Obama for president. Oh wait that already happened with Planned Parenthood.
Listening to Bette Midler is a waste of time.
Who would want to hear the words of an over-the-hill, talentless cow.
Just another stupid hollywood bi#@%.
I agree that while they “facists” and “Marxists” are on their high horse and champion tyranny I hope they continue to out themselves. When the economy collapses and the dollar collapses, we will see what they say then, when they suddenly have accidents.
Well, now we know Midler is an idiot. These fools can get away with saying anything. Part of America’s long decline.
75 years ago, Bette Midler in Germany would have cheered, “I love that they’re sending Jews to the camps”!
Okay then.... Top 5!!!!!!!
I wonder what her reaction would be if one of her favorite MARXISTS groups had been targeted.
You know, MoveOn.org, Media Matters, “Green” groups, Environmentalist wackos, PETA, and on and on and on.
I wonder what she “forgot” to declare on her tax return?
So apparently she does not believe in “NEVER AGAIN” but rather “AS LONG AS IT’S NOT ME”.
This tweeting twit is twisted. Here is a dumb ARS who loves the IRS.
I think she’s missing singing and carrying on at the gay bathhouses where she so firmly denied she ever did. Oh, the old days Bette. Who would have thought it would get to this point?
Be careful attributing malice to what most likely can be explained as stupidity.
The stupid cow is a Jew. Doesn’t she know that those fascist thugs were also going after Jews?
Bette Middling: fat, ugly, brassy ... and now with 50% more hypocrisy!
But don’t you DARE call her a fascist.
These people cannot wait to have death camps all over America for Christians and conservatives
Dems never truly think anything through....or they are just not capable of any common sense????
The GOPe might just continue attacking conservative groups too
Hey Bette... Do you know how many leftist groups are non-profits? The IRS should look deeply into MOTHER JONES for example.
