Today the House Ways and Means Committee held its fifth Congressional Hearing on the targeting of Conservative groups in the United States by the Internal Revenue Service. We heard from representatives of Conservative groups who were subjected to huge delays and invasive questions on their applications for non-profit status. This is an ongoing investigation that Sister Patriot has been following closely, but in today’s hearing, a few things stood out to me.
I would first like to bestow the “AssHat of the Day” Award upon Congressman Jim McDermott (D-WA) for being a douche canoe. The Congressman basically blamed the Conservative groups for being attacked. If they hadn’t utilized the system and applied for tax exempt status, they never would’ve been harassed. Silly Tea Party people. It’s kind of like someone blaming a rape victim for being raped. Very narrow-minded thinking from the so-called “progressive” side of the aisle.
McDermott goes on to ask, “You wouldn’t want “an organization promoting taxpayer-funding of abortions” to get this tax break, would you?” Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t at least part of Planned Parenthood a 501c3/501c4?? I guess he forgot that part.
Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) spoke to reason and defended the victims of IRS harassment. His Patriotic and wise remarks are yet another painful reminder that this brilliant man *could* have been our Vice President right now, instead of Jumpin’ Joe “Whoopee Cushions” Biden. But, I digress…
For me, the most poignant moment came from the emotional testimony of Becky Gerritson, President of the Wetumpka Tea Party in Alabama. Becky is a true Sister Patriot, speaking up for what is RIGHT. I applaud her courage and her devotion to this country. If you haven’t heard her testimony yet, I urge you to watch the below video.
Today’s hearing adds to the mounting evidence that our freedoms are fading fast. Conservatives are being targeted, the war on Christianity is raging and the Constitution is being ignored. Wake up America. To those that are awake, please keep speaking up. ~~Sister Patriot
