Bette Midler thanks IRS for targeting Tea Party groups
examiner ^ | 5/17/13 | Joe Newby

Posted on 05/27/2013 9:32:04 AM PDT by Nachum

Since news broke that the IRS targeted conservative organizations due to their political views, some on the left have celebrated the actions. The latest to do so is Bette Midler, who took to Twitter Thursday to thank the IRS for going after the small government movement, Twitchy reported.

"The IRS overtaxing The Tea Party? I never thought I'd say this to the IRS - THANK YOU! THANK YOU FOR DENYING 501C-4 to any group who hates," she wrote.

Some of her followers expressed support for her position.

I guess Ms. Midler would be sinign a different tune if it were say, Gay groups being targeted. You don’t need a brain to sing well.

THANK YOU THANK YOU paying public for not wasting one more hard earned dime on anything this liberal slut sings or acts in.

She accuses us of hating, but who is the hater here? Seems to me if she wants to make accusations she better look in the mirror first. My deepest apologies to the mirror!

But it won’t.

This is the bureaucratic branch of government. It is all leftist, it is unelected and it does what it does on auto pilot.

“The next Republican president should have the IRS audit her! (Just joking!)”

The IRS is designed to be abusive. Because you can never control who is running things and what their agenda is, we need to replace it with a sales tax. (Actually, when the government can produce money by clicking a mouse (quantitative easing) then why have taxes at all?)

Went to see her in concert. My wife wanted to see her. In truth I liked some of her music.

I’d say she spend about one third of the program assuring us she loved homosexuals, wanted everyone else to love homosexuals, and basically doing a public service propaganda effort.

Folks, I’m not in favor of homosexuality. I am willing to let folks life the life they want. I am a friendly person, and I don’t single homosexuals out for anything less than that. I don’t want to see homosexuals mistreated. On the other hand, I want our children left alone. Don’t try to sell me on it. If I pay for a concert ticket, then I want to see a concert. Don’t you dare try to sell me on anything else. PERIOD!

I would not wish no one to be pulled through a key hole inspection and harassment from the IRS. She can speak loudly because her president would not be directing his enemies list of liberals, now would he. Yes, she's a nut. And reminds me of the joker and she's even not funny, just hateful and dumb.

Fools like Midler (and a huge percentage of the Hollyweird vermin) are all for collectivism so long as you do not 'collect' a large amount of their wealth to give to the 'little people' who are their fans.

Leftists are natural hypocrits.

No. That would be logical. She's also a far left lib...and libs do not use logic.

This old gal just needs to stick to singing and put her tweets to rest. She's becoming the geriatric version of Amanda Bynes.

“Well, you made a long journey from Milan to Minsk, Rochelle, Rochelle. You never stopped hoping; now you’re in the Pinsk, Rochelle, Rochelle. When the naysayers nay you picked up your pace. You said nothing’s going to stop me so get out of my face. I’m having adventures all over the place, Rochelle, ROCHELLE!”

Listen to Nachum, Bette. You know he is correct.

Bette you Baccus, Schumer, Franken, Waters, et. al. must know you are laying the ground work for something terrible. [Use your imagination]

Methinks even your low information voters know what you are doing. They just don't yet know the consequences.

Just in case you or your voters are obtuse, the ground work you are laying will make CWI look like a walk in the park on a warm spring day.

People who applaud the use of the government to go after groups they do not like are the ones that complain the loudest when their own group is targeted. It is obvious they really do not believe in a free society, but one ruled by people like them. Democracy, in any of it’s forms, are not what Midler and her ilk prefer.

Here are her educational credentials which give her etiquette for publicly, divinely, opining on the state of our governmental corruption, which, at this point is biblical, thanks to people listening to her and her circle:

She was raised in Aiea, HI, and attended Radford High School, in Honolulu.[6] She was voted “Most Talkative” in the 1961 school Hoss Election, and in her Senior Year (Class of 1963), “Most Dramatic”.[7] Midler majored in drama at the University of Hawaii, but left after three semesters.[8] She earned money in the 1966 film Hawaii as an extra,[5] playing an uncredited seasick passenger named Miss David Buff.

Oh, and she has a smile surgically installed on her face which would otherwise show her severe hatred af all things good in this country that she has the freedom to leave any time she wants.

This is exactly the mindset that many in Germany had in the 1930s when the National Socialists went after the Jews. I’m wondering how long it’ll be before the first extermination of a conservative takes place. Or has it already...

I am puzzled as to where they get the idea that the Tea Party “hates.” Hates the destruction of the Constitution? Hates excessive taxation? Hates big government?

So I just opened my itunes music list and I deleted all my Midler songs. A grand total of 4. 3 of the songs are covered by other artists in my music library so no huge loss. Normally I ignore rants and raves of the loony artist crowd but occasionally they go over the line in my mind and this instance was such a case. I am not consistent in this nor do I care to be. Still have Streisand and Springsteen and a bunch of other loonies in there but they may go at some point too. If the level of negativity rises to such a level in listening to certain artists that there is no longer enjoyment then its bye bye. Bette just reached her best before date with me. It might have happened when she said some vile stuff about W a few years ago but that didn’t do it at the time but this did.

Tea Party folks are Taxed Enough Already, and I don’t see where their so called hatred stems from, other than from the misleading Press reports. Its the Press, who love to portray them as redneck KKK Nazis. Propagandists love hollow minded people, they are so easy to persuade and Bette Midler is no Rocket Scientist. LOL, I bet she just loves Palin too. Show me your love Bette.

I really believe she is that stupid.

She, like other celebs, live in a society that is separate from normal daily life. They are an echo chamber for any kind of nonsense that comes along. Since they are removed from the real world, they have lost the ability to filter the BS from the truth. Had anyone actually the guts to check the facts, they would be first appalled at the truth then ostracized for being different. If they accept the reeducation they are welcomed back in the fold and get the good jobs. If they hold to the truth, they are shunned, mocked and overlooked for good jobs.

Laura Ingraham said it so succinctly: “Shut up and sing!”

Slightly tangential to your comment - I took my mom to a concert featuring a couple of 60’s singers (Chad & Jeremy). All we wanted to do was hear some old tunes.

These two klowns came out and immediately launched into lengthy ramblings instead of playing their music. It wasn’t hard to see that they were totally infatuated with themselves (does anyone even remember them?!).

After an intermission they came back on and started talking politics (this was right before the 2012 election) and mostly slamming Romney and anyone right of center. At one point I got irritated and shouted out “Shut up and sing!” - to which I was resoundingly booed by the audience.

Later I apologized to my Mom for embarrassing her in public, to which she replied, “Nonsense, someone needed to tell them to shut the hell up!”
