Will we be tricked into blaming Edward Snowden when we should be mad at Washington? A massive domestic spying program that taxpayers funded and didn’t know much about is awkward to explain in this era of transparency and cries out for Washington to play the blame game. If the subterfuge works we will end up forgetting about our government’s failure to keep us in the loop on its snooping and will only remember the larger than life perpetrator.
What’s so special about the IRS? Other agencies of our federal bureaucracy have done at least as much damage as they carry out Democratic Washington’s ongoing attack on conservatives.
Barack Obama’s Cabinet has done its part to influence bad policy decisions (see: Cabinet Members Should Be Held Accountable). First term members went out of their way to stop conservative Americans dead in their tracks.
Stop acting surprised that the IRS punished conservative groups. Don’t feign outrage. When John Boehner talks about jail, who is he kidding? No one is going to jail. No one is going to be impeached. The White House has been nothing but candid about how it views the Tea Party and conservative groups in general. As the scandal broke, the president was still issuing threats and using the Tea Party as a symbol of everything wrong with America, an excuse to appease liberals with class warfare over wealth and taxes (see: Anti-American Tax Plan Teaches Tyranny, Not Fairness).
Do you spend time thinking about what your friends do in bed? Are you preoccupied with the sexual proclivities of your co-workers? Probably not. Why, then, is announcing one’s sexual preference worthy of a pat on the back from the president and first lady when it comes from a celebrity? Congratulating someone for revealing they are gay seems a lot like telling someone you are proud they are African American.
