Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry says “no one was fundamentally harmed” by the IRS’s targeting of Obama-unapproved applicants for tax-exempt status. (Go to 4:00 of the video to skip the preceding lies.)

Elsewhere, detestable Bill Maher inquires: “Is it unreasonable [for IRS] to target an anti-tax group?”

Good lord.

I’ve discussed the case of Frank VanderSloot, a wealthy businessman minding his own business preferring Romney to Obama when the Obama campaign attacked him for being a wealthy discredit-worthy Romney supporter. VanderSloot’s operations were forthwith audited by several government agencies.

VanderSloot is a big fish. Catherine Engelbrecht is not.

Engelbrecht is one of many right-leaning applicants for tax-exempt status forced to deal with endless intrusive questions, the ostensible result of innocent mismanagement by harried low-level IRS clerks. Her two political organizations are True the Vote, which combats voter fraud, and King Street Patriots, a discussion group.

As soon as Engelbrecht applied for tax-exempt status, the FBI began investigating King Street Patriots. Then the IRS audited the couple’s tax returns. Then the agency began its rounds of grilling about True the Vote and King Street Patriots. Then the ATF audited the machine shop. Then OSHA came.

“No one was fundamentally harmed”? Do we need corpses?

Reports about the IRS’s special targeting of non-liberal applications for tax-exempt status indicate that many folks gave up on forming their organizations. Other attempts have been delayed for years. Such time-wasting, money-wasting, action-stopping obstructionism makes it harder to pursue one’s mission during the run-up to a national election, nyet?

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

    actually, Harris was completely wrong.

    All Americans were fundamentally harmed by the actions of the IRS.

    No one is fundamentally harmed when a cross is burned on their lawn, but that doesn’t legitimize doing it.
    No one is fundamentally harmed when they are intimidated away from a voting booth, when they are prohibited from speaking in public, or when they are held without bail. Soft tyranny is still tyranny.

    Doug says it best. Every freedom-loving American was harmed by the violation of the civil rights of others by the IRS.

    Frankly, I think I was audited by the IRS simply because I’ve provided my email to a Tea Party group.
