hammer_and_sickle2Come on in, comrades.  The borscht is nice and cold, and our repressive government’s office of confiscation will punish any wealthy Kulaks who refuse to bow down to the will of the proletariat.

News broke last week that a draft inspector general report confirmed that the IRS was specifically targeting conservative groups for audits, and the regime responded to it in textbook totalitarian fashion.

The whole issue was attributed to a few rogue agents in Cincinnati, and people were told to move along.  There’s nothing to see here.

It was conveniently overlooked that the Cincinnati-based IRS unit wasn’t some podunk little department.  It was the one responsible for overseeing the applications for tax exempt status, and this wasn’t some minor problem.

The U.S. government is using its powers to stifle free speech to prevent political opposition, and that terrifies me.

These IRS agents graduated from singling out groups that used terms like Tea Party or Patriot in their names to any that mentioned issues as broad as government debt or criticized how the government was being run.

What’s the next step?  Was there going to be a knock on the door in the middle of the night?  Will armed guards whisk you off to a nice Gulag in the wilderness?

Laugh all you want but this same scenario has played out from Russia to China to Cambodia.  And contrary to your mom’s lies, you’re not special.
