IRS gives free pass to famous Obama leftist group

IRS GIVES FREE PASS TO FAMOUS OBAMA LEFTIST GROUP

But strips tax-exempt status from small conservative nonprofit

Garth Kant

WASHINGTON — A stunning example of IRS political activity and liberal bias is sitting in plain view for all the world to see, following an investigation by WND.

The IRS has just stripped a small, obscure, conservative nonprofit of its tax-exempt status for two alleged rule violations a decade ago, while taking a hands-off approach to a famous leftist website that’s well-financed by billionaire George Soros and other liberals and has engaged in more egregious practices for years, and on a much vaster scale.

On Monday, USA Today published an IRS document confirming that in February the IRS revoked the tax-exempt status for the Patrick Henry Center for Individual Liberty, a small, conservative group founded in 1997 and based in Manassas, Va. The group had operated for years as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. The center advertises itself as “committed to fostering, promoting, and advocating the restoration of Liberty as the primary object of American society.”

...........

The liberal behemoth Media Matters is also a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization. It claims on its website to be a “progressive research and information center dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media.”

Media Matters operates freely as a tax-exempt organization without any apparent interference from the IRS, while its website has literally thousands of highly partisan political articles on public display, virtually all of them advocating extremely liberal positions.

EXEMPT Issa and his corrupt EXEMPT Committee
will send a letter or whine, as usual.

The EXEMPT will do Anything except enforcing the Law.

Why, that goes against everything the IRS stands for!

Can’t have none of that!

No wonder they lost their exempt status.

Why doesn’t someone file suit against this blatant bias?

And it is in the open. Despots in the past hired thugs to beat up opponents in the streets. The democrat version is to conduct unrestricted lawfare on enemies. It is cleaner, leaves no outward marks, but is just as effective in destroying their lives.

Elections won't cure what ails our republic.

But getting rid of tax exempt foundations would really help.

The law does not apply to rich, well connected leftists, or in this case NAZI sympathizers.

” Despots in the past hired thugs to beat up opponents in the streets.”

That’s next. Hence the militarization of all the various alphabet agencies.

No such decent man was running. Just a liar who did horrid dishonest attack ads against conservatives, then lied about it, and when corned, weaseled.

Not sure how his religious is relevant to anything.
