The neo-Nazi scourge of today’s Democrat Party and Al Franken
The Daily Caller’s 05/17/13 report, “Flashback: Schumer, Franken urged IRS to target tea party in 2012,” exposes the moral bankruptcy of the left, as those leaders demanded an expansion of the current administration’s on-going anti-democratic efforts. Al Franken, Chuck Schumer, and other liberal Democrats penned a letter on March 12, 2012, calling on the IRS to cap the amount of political spending by groups they deemed masquerading as “social welfare organizations.” The group stated that the lack of clarity in the IRS rules allowed some political groups to improperly claim 501(c) 4 status, thereby allowing donors to these groups to wrongfully claim tax deductions for their contributions. The administration’s previous actions, coupled with this group of liberal demands, casts a dark shadow over the Constitutional freedoms guaranteed by our Republic.
This not so subtle attack on the First Amendment rights of those directly opposing the liberal political stance has received little blow-back from the American people. They dutifully accept this fait accompli and the defenses mounted by the Administration’s pliant propaganda ministry, aka, the Mainstream Media. The American people, to this point, have allowed the President, and his minions, to martial the focus of numerous governmental entities, like the FBI, IRS, OSHA, and others, against the opposition. In this case, the poster children for this modern-day liberal Democrat Nazi overreach are the conservative group, ‘True the Vote’, as well as the Gibson Guitar company.
‘True the Vote’ is a group organized to root out voter fraud. The couple who organized the group found themselves the subject of 18 repeated government contacts and investigations by agencies, which included the FBI, IRS, OSHA, and others. The ATF, during one visit, forced the couple to open their gun safe and then recorded all firearm serial numbers. These multiple bureaucratic attacks occurred immediately following their applying for non-profit status in 2010. Prior to filing for non-profit status, the couple had no involvement with any federal entity, other than filing and paying taxes. To this day, the government refuses to address their petition for non-profit status.
Gibson Guitar Company experienced trouble from the federal government in 2011 after its CEO donated money to the Republican Party. Much of the wood the company uses to build guitars was seized, the government claiming their wood purchased from India and Madagascar to be illegal. Gibson proved the allegations baseless. Meanwhile, the CEO of CF Martin and Company, a top Gibson competitor gave handsomely to the liberal democratic coffers. There were no repercussions, even though the Martin Company uses woods in the guitar building process which are identical to woods used by Gibson. Martin and Company received zero penalties, while Gibson spent several hundred thousand dollars in defense, and was forced into paying fifty thousand dollars to a natural resource mitigation fund.
These crass political machinations of the liberal Democrat Party march the country inexorably toward a tyranny never before seen between our shores. Unfortunately, the current liberal Democrat Party assaults the fabric of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, which gave birth to and supports a 200 plus year old democracy. The next election will be telling, as the voters choose to extend this neo-Nazi grip on the country by electing Franken and his ilk, or whether they reject him, his cohorts and their socialist policies. We hope the converse will be true, that voters stand up and vote for those upholding the freedoms and rights espoused and ensconced in the Constitution of our Republic.
