Skip to comments.IRS gives free pass to famous Obama leftist group

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 thats 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.

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.
They are not even pretending any more.
Why doesn’t someone file suit against this blatant bias?
Like the stupid party will do anything about it?
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.
The Chicago Mob moved to DC in Jan 2009.
Anybody acting surprised at this is dull witted.
we could have stopped this back in 2012 but some just couldn't vote for a Mormon or for a decent man with some conservative good points...
nope...we had to ensure the dictatorship continues, and at this point, don't ever think it will end...
Thanks smoothsailing. Ignore the snarky misdirected comments in the topic, all.
” 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.
“we could have stopped this back in 2012 but some just couldn’t vote for a Mormon or for a decent man with some conservative good points...”
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.
