The more we learn about the IRS corruption scandal, the clearer it becomes that the IRS was indeed targeting conservatives for attack.
Most recently we’ve learned of some of Lois Lerner’s email correspondence where she makes it abundantly clear how she feels about conservatives.
The Daily Caller hits the high points (or low points if you will) of the emails for us…
“So we don’t need to worry about teRroists [sic]. It’s our own crazies that will take us down,” Lerner wrote in a Nov. 9, 2012 email exchange with an IRS colleague.
Lerner’s email mocking conservative “crazies” came at the end of an exchange with an unnamed colleague.
“Well, you should hear the whacko wing of the GOP. The US is through; too many foreigners sucking the teat; time to hunker down, buy ammo and food, and prepare for the end. The right wing radio shows are scary to listen to,” wrote Lerner’s correspondent.
“Great. Maybe we are through if there are that many assholes,” replied Lerner in the email, though the pejorative was redacted in the email provided by Camp.
In his letter, Camp reminds Holder of other possible biases displayed by Lerner. In response to a news article about the pro-Obama non-profit Organizing for Action, Lerner wrote to another colleague, “Oh – maybe I can get the DC office job!”
It is getting increasingly difficult for the Democrats and their friends in the media to defend the IRS, but they continue to try.
At some point America will likely just tune out the entire debacle and decide that the IRS is corrupt and so to is the media.
Clearly, the IRS targeted conservatives. Clearly, it wasn’t just some low-level hacks in Cincinnati. Clearly something bigger was going on. Lois Lerner was one of the most important people at the IRS and she seems heavily involved in this corrupt, mean spirited and highly un-American scandal. Liberals should be just us angry as conservatives that the government could (and would) be used to silence opposition from the minority party. Yesterday, conservatives were in the minority… tomorrow it could be liberals who find themselves in the minority.
Lois Lerner is a criminal, but she wasn’t the only one at the IRS persecuting conservatives. It’s time for liberals to work with conservatives to bring the lawbreakers and the thoroughly anti-American IRS workers who would persecute innocent Americans to justice.
