Audit The IRS Rally Expected To Be Biggest Tea Party Protest Since 2010

0 Shares

 

Mainstream media is, thus far, characteristically mum on coverage of the event— but what is expected to be the largest gathering of Tea Party activists since 2010 will converge on Washington D.C. Tuesday in protest of the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservatives.

The event, dubbed the Audit the IRS Rally, will occur from noon until 2 p.m. on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol.

Tea Party Patriots, the event organizers, have lined up an inclusive group of conservative speakers to address attendees, among those who will be present: Glenn Beck, Senator Mike Lee, Representative Michele Bachmann, Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Rand Paul, Jenny Beth Martin, Representative Steve King, Representative Dave Camp, Representative Louie Gohmert, Representative Jim Jordan, Representative Tim Huelskamp, Representative Jim Bridenstine, Representative John Fleming, Representative Tom Graves, Representative Tom Price, Representative Mike Kelly, Representative Matt Salmon, Tea Party Leaders, Dana Loesch, Steve Bannon, Sonnie Johnson, Jim Hoft, Niger Innis and Andrew Marcus.

The organization cites a speech given by Becky Gerritson of Wetumpka Tea Party in testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee as an example of the spirit behind the rally.

She told lawmakers earlier this month:

We are patriotic Americans. We peacefully assemble. We petition our government. We exercise our right to free speech and we don’t understand why our government tried to stop us. We aren’t here as serfs or vassals. We’re not begging our lords for mercy. We are born free American citizens and we’re telling our government that you’ve forgotten your place. It’s not your responsibility to look out for our well being and monitor our speech. It’s not your right to assert an agenda. The post that you occupy exists to preserve American liberty. You’ve sworn to perform that duty and you have faltered.

    I guess the reason the mainstream media and normal people do not care about this rally is:
    1) Not one conservative group was denied tax exempt status even though none of these groups had any business being subsidized by my tax dollars
    2) Not one conservative group complained of being “persecuted” by the IRS as a result of this “extra scrutiny”
    3) Full transcripts of the hearings were released by the Democrats where the person that was in charge in the OH branch had no reason to believe the WH was involved in any way
    4) the Head of the OH IRS branch where this scandal originated from is a 21 year conservative Republican and the head of the IRS at the time this was going on was an appointee from Bush, a conservative.
    So… much ado about nothing except for the fact that these overtly political groups got tax exempt status when they shouldn’t have.

      If you took your head out of your butt maybe you wouls see the truth.

      • Dave

        Lol… A conservative trying to talk about “truth”… Thats rich

        • garygerke

          Dave……you are truly a liberal troll paid by the demoratic party to continue the lies.

          • Dave

            Sure Gary… Sure…

            Where there ANY groups DENIED 501 status? No…

            Did any group make ANY claim of harrassment by the IRS? NO…

            Were there a shortage to conservative political groups on TV, Radio or Print media for Romney/Conservative positions? Absolutely not… their ads outnumbered liberal ads by FAR.

            Wah wah wah….Do you want cheese to go with your whine?

            But I am sure you support these overtly political groups being subsidized by your tax dollars because you are an easily led conservative robot with little ability to engage in critical thinking.

            The only people that believe the BS are people like you. The real issue should be the fact that these groups got tax exempt status in the first place but that seems to be lost on you. I keep forgetting big money in the political process is embraced by conservatives.

            Dave,
            Groups were denied 501 status via delay. They had to wait 27 to 36 months to get approval while liberal groups were given a fast track.
            Suppose we just delay giving amnesty to illegal aliens indefinitely rather than outright deny it.
            Look up the word “objectivity” in the dictionary. It means seeing the world the way it really is, not the way you want it to be to defend your argument.

          • Frank Kahn

            It is an extremely blatant liberal misconception that these groups were seeking to be subsidized by the tax payer. There is no rational reasoning that can be put forth to accommodate such a claim.

            These groups were targeted for their political ideologies, not because of their true purpose.

            It is simply, your opinion, that none of these groups deserved tax exempt status. Identically organized, liberal, groups were granted this status without the extreme questioning and delays.

            The purpose of these groups, both liberal and conservative, is to hide the identity of the benefactors (contributors). It allows massive donations to flow without paying taxes on the money, however, it also eliminates the ability of the benefactor to claim tax deductions for charitable donation. So, even though the organization saves tax expenses, the government loses nothing.

            If nobody gets a tax break for the donation, then no tax revenue is lost.

            The liberal organizations benefited from this system, so why do you object to the conservatives taking advantage of the same?

          I may have used the wrong word, I think FACTS is a better one you people never let them get in the way of a lie.

      Ben Franklin once said; “A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins”.

      Dave, Government tyranny is all around us, the Federal Government is out of control in almost every aspect of American life, you are not immune, it will not pass you in the night. Your liberty is at stake, it’s not about liberal or conservative, it’s about America for which it stands.

      Dave, Do you think “Bagdad Bob” actually believed the rhetoric spilling out of his mouth as he “objectively” covered the American invasion in Iraq? Do you really believe the rhetoric spilling out of your mouth?

  • SOCIALISM-MUST-GO!

    No, they should have rejected his voice!

    The IRS political intimidation impacted donations and therefore the election. The IRS and NSA use information as a weapon to coerce people to break laws and ignore the Constitution. Trust us. This is an easy path to follow. (you been watching too much Perry Mason)
    Just like collecting data and monitoring communications saved, what’s that again? Fill in the blanks of whatever you can make up. You see trust is not an outfall of Fast & Furious, Bhengazi, and a very long list of other behavioral problems.
