Skip to comments.Donna Brazile: No conspiracy here, IRS targeted liberals, too
Posted on 06/22/2014 6:40:17 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
Brazile, who did not respond to an email, said the IRS was "looking at everybody" including liberal groups and progressive groups. Yes, some progressive groups did have their tax-exempt status applications flagged as the IRS reviewed whether nonprofit groups were engaging in political activities.
But it wasnt to the same degree as tea party and other conservative groups, nor did it result in the same actions. The list targeting tea party groups resulted in delayed processing that in some cases lasted almost three years and inquiries into their donors. Further, the inspector general found tea party groups were systematically singled out as part of an office-wide effort, while progressive groups were not.
Weighing all of this, we rate Braziles comments Half True.

I have not heard of ONE far left group being targeted by the IRS..Brazile is full of poo..one day karma is gonna be a well, ya know..and leftists won’t like when they get targeted instead of Conservatives..then you will hear them crying
Yeah, but they were smiling at some and frowning at others. All depends on the party, pal.
One thing Obama has going, the commissars stay loyal. No leaks. no deep throat. Would be funny though if the technician who records all oval office conversations suddenly got religion.
The IRS targeting liberal groups was DEBUNKED you lefty sweathog!
So she won't be the least bit displeased when President Cruz returns the favor when he's in office.
You are about as truthful as Obama!
I like the look and the sound of that!
President Cruz Yes there may yet be HOPE....real hope, for our Republic!
She has utterly zero basis for making such a comment. None, zero.
Isn’t Brazile the one who started the rumor back in the day that H.W. Bush was messing around with a secretary or some such rot?
Another Marxist mouthpuss speaks.
Has she been hanging out with the tree again?
.... I believe what Donna Brazile said is 100% accurate ..... there was in fact 3 or 4 Democrat groups out of the 450 or so incidents of IRS targeting. So she is therefore technically correct .... but fundamentally wrong. She can however technically claim that the targeting was Bipartisan in scope..... and that is how the State Controlled Media will report it to the masses and spin it as nothing but a partisan GOP witch hunt.
So Brazile’s argument is that since the IRS abused its power with both sides, that it’s fine and dandy that they melted down the evidence, obstructed investigations, lied to Congress, and are still stonewalling.
As long as the IRS is impartial tyranny, then the US is ok with it. Is that right MS. Brazile?
I may be mis-remembering, but my recollection of "The Crucible" by Arthur Miller -- about the Salem Witch Trials of 1692 sort of went that way.
Young girls would be "possessed " by witches and accuse neighbors of sorcery. The judge pretty much said, "If they accuse you, you must be guilty. The girls wouldn't lie about a thing like that."
Things proceeded like that for awhile and then the girls accuse the judge's wife. Things changed real quick. All of a sudden it became: "These girls are liars. I know my wife isn't a witch. All the accused people in jail should be freed. These girls are monsters."
It would be nice if some Obama insider suddenly realized: "These people are a threat to me. I'm going to spill the beans."
They have a very deep bench when it comes to people that can be relied upon to roll out in front of the camera and lie with conviction. No matter how big the lie or how damaging it is to the country.
Name five, Donna.
If this were true, the hard drive would miraculously reconstruct itself.
The lies will eventually run into the light of truth. Karma is rarely instant but it does show up eventually.
“ZERO Liberal Groups Targeted By IRS” (05/18/2013)
If the libs /Dildocrats could produce an organization or a face
appearing at a congressional hearing they would in a zerObama
minute. They can’t so they won’t. Sit down and shut the F up, Odonna,
This talking farm animal is nothing but what she is, a a piece of sh!t.
Ok Donna, show us the emails and prove it.
Could be getting hot in the kitchen
well they had one.. but since it was so long ago and the agents hard drive crashed and was shredded... Oh and they over wrote the backup tapes too...
So there was a list, but we don’t have it any more.
Even if it was true (doubtful) what in hell makes it right? NOTHING!
It is interesting what is starting to come out. The revelations about Hillary being against the Bengahzi cover-up, etc. I have a feeling that the floodgates on the Obahma Administrations corruption are just starting to open.
It is just a matter of time that someone who received one of the missing IRS emails leaks it to the press or someone over at NSA pulls a Snowden and leaks some of the emails.
Publish the e-mails then.....
Returning to some old vomit.
She had a list, but it was lost when her laptop crashed.
There were many many Leftist traitors who were blocked from filing as non-profits, and if the daily, weekly, monthly and annual backups, the servers, the tapes and the paper hard copies that federal laws demands be kept, hadn't been accidentally teleported into a black hole, she could prove it.
Ignore the huge column of toxic smoke behind her...
Ok so IF the IRS targeted liberals as well, whey were the IRS targeting anyone in the first place?
Why is the IRS the thug gang of government?
Who did they target other than non liberals?
IF we has Americans in the house, they would defund the punks in the IRS until they come clean.
but I digress.
She lies good for a big fat ugly woman.
They targeted a couple of liberal groups just so they could say they targeted both sides. It was calculated.
The simple fact is tea party groups ARE political. The government could have gotten away with simply saying “You are a political activist group and therefore are not entitled to tax exempt status.” And that would have been that. But they wanted to go a lot further. They wanted to shut them down and thus kill free speech.
Does she have the e-mails to back that up?
This old hag was instrumental in ManBearPig’s um, “election.”
Beware the old Brazilisk. It haveth a forked tongue.
Don’t want no mo’
No big fat woman
Just like courts target women in divorce too... if they are outright drug addled terrorists for children, that is.
So the Ds are recycling their lies? The my-computer-crashed-and-I-threw-it-away story isnt working?
It wasnt nice to send out Donna B and have her look stupid.
‘The IRS targeting liberal groups was DEBUNKED you lefty sweathog!”
The problem is, this doesn’t actually matter. The truth DOES NOT MATTER. The perception of what is the truth DOES matter, and they are VERY good at manipulating this.
Yep. Liberal writer EJ Dione repeated the same garbage on Meet the Press.
