Nonsequitur: The IRS Doesn’t Like the Constitution
September 24, 2014
According the to the Treasury Inspector General’s report, Inappropriate Criteria Were Used to Identify Tax-Exempt Applications for Review”, the IRS was targeting …
“Political action type organizations involved in limiting/expanding government, educating on the constitution and bill of rights, social economic reform/movement” (pp. 30, 38)
I suppose you could argue that involvement with limiting/expanding government or social economic reform may have roots in political advocacy. But educating on the Constitution and Bill of Rights is not political advocacy.
We require school children to have a basic understanding of the Constitution. We require individuals seeking naturalization to have a basic understanding of the Constitution. And it is assumed that we want American voters to understand the constitutional basis for their voting.
But the IRS apparently doesn’t want citizens to understand their Constitutional rights, at least under this administration.
