Chuck Schumer Calls for IRS Targeting of Tea Party ‘Extremists’ – Again!

Chuck Schumer, Fascist
The powerful Democratic Senator from New York, Chuck Schumer, has called for an aggressive campaign to target the Tea Party and other Conservatives. This isn’t the first time he has done so.
Chuck Schumer addressed the far-left, Soros-backed Center for American Progress Thursday. The Center is a think tank bordering on the lunatic fringe. Schumer’s remarks included a declaration of war on the Tea Party “elite” because he is under the misguided notion that the “elite” such as the Koch Brothers, are not in touch with the rank-and-file. He recommended changes to the electoral process and proposed cutting off funding sources by having the IRS and other government agencies target conservative groups.
Parroting Andrew Cuomo and Bill De Blasio, Schumer called the Conservatives and the Tea Party “extremists” and renewed calls for targeting against them to advance their statist agenda:
“It is clear that we will not pass anything legislatively as long as the House of Representatives is in Republican control, but there are many things that can be done administratively by the IRS and other government agencies — we must redouble those efforts immediately,” Schumer said.
The last time he insisted on this, the IRS targeted Conservatives, targeting which has gone unpunished. In fact, the IRS is planning to make it illegal for Tea Party Conservatives to ever get tax-exempt status.
In 2010 and again in 2012, Democrats told the IRS to investigate the Tea Party.
Max Baucus, Chairman of the Finance Committee, was one of those leading the investigation into the IRS targeting of conservative groups but he was one of the Democrats who insisted they be scrutinized in the first place.
Baucus wrote a letter to then-IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman dated September 28, 2010 urging the IRS to investigate nonprofit conservative groups during the Tea Party-dominated 2010 midterm elections.
In February 2012, Sen. Chuck Schumer D-N.Y., together with Sens. Al Franken, D-Minn., Michael Bennet, D-Colo., Sheldon Whitehouse. D-R.I., Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., and Tom Udall D-N.M.wrote a letter to the IRS Commissioner asking for an investigation of all these “social welfare organizations.”
“We write to inquire if the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) is investigating or intends to investigate whether groups designated as “social welfare” organizations, and thus receiving tax and other advantages under section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC), 26 U.S.C. § 501(c)(4), are improperly engaged in a substantial or even a predominant amount of campaign activity,” the letter read.
Barack Obama is undoubtedly involved in the targeting.
More truth is said in jest, listen to these comments from Barack Obama in 2009:
The extremists aren’t the Tea Party who want limited government, it’s the leftists in the Democratic Party who want uncontrolled spending, abortions to the moment of birth, and draconian restrictions on the Second Amendment.
We have $17 trillion in debt and $3 trillion dollar budgets with trillion dollar deficits every year.
Chuck Schumer, Sandanista De Blasio and King Cuomo are setting the stage for the 2014 election. Income inequality, amnesty, the faux war on women, and hatred aimed at the Tea Party, who will be targeted again, are all on the pre-election agenda. This election won’t be based on the real issues like Obamacare and foreign affairs, just invented ones.
The way they are going about it is to abuse their public office, which is nothing less than tyranny. Where are their defenders?http://www.independentsentinel.com/chuck-schumer-calls-for-irs-targeting-of-tea-party-extremists-again/
