Our good friend Doug Mainwaring has penned a very thorough piece at American Thinker listing many of the possible cheerleaders who egged-on the IRS in its targeting of conservative and (we have just learned) pro-Israel groups.
Where in the world did “Low level IRS employees” get the idea that Tea Party, Patriot, Constitution, and Small Government groups should be harassed?
Read on for the stunning answer(s) as Mainwaring piles up the evidence. Then here is the wrap-up:
Let’s review the possibilities: President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi; Former DNC Head Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Senator John McCain, Rep. Mike Doyle (D-PA), Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO); New York City’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg; USA Today’s DeWayne Wickham; MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews; ABC’s Brian Ross and George Stephanopoulos; The New York Times’ Frank Rich, Maureen Dowd,* Nicholas Kristof and Thomas Friedman; The Washington Post’s Richard Cohen, Dana Millbank, and Eugene Robinson; and the Editors of the Wall Street Journal.
And these are just the tip of the iceberg, the fountainhead of the fabricated cascade of false information meant to destroy the Tea Party movement, Patriot, Constitution and Small Government groups.
The IRS’s mistreatment of these groups is evidence of our Political Aristocracy becoming unglued, unhinged and unstable. It is evidence of the fragility of their grip on both Washington and the Nation.
I don’t know about you, but are you getting a sense that something is coming unglued—exactly how and why is not yet clear.
* Just a little point of interest, Maureen Dowd is my husband’s first cousin and when the Tea Party movement got underway and she was writing critically about us, I wrote to her to invite her to meet some real Tea Party people. She never answered my e-mail.
