Bette Midler praises IRS for targeting conservative groups: ‘I LOVE THE IRS!!!’

The Internal Revenue Service has apologized for targeting groups with “tea party” or “patriot” in their names.

An inspector general’s report scheduled to be released later this week reportedly says the IRS also targeted groups that criticized the government and sought to educate Americans about the U.S. Constitution.

And if that weren’t bad enough, the IRS reportedly released conservative groups’ confidential information to the “independent” (that is, liberal) news organization ProPublica.

But Bette Midler sees no reason for concern. No reason at all.

She took to Twitter last night to announce (in all caps) that she thinks what the IRS did is just great, because in her view political organizations are not legitimate 501(c)(4)s.

And if a conservative administration targeted liberal 501(c)(4) organizations like Organizing for Action, that would be just fine, right Bette?

    Good. I like when the left openly touts their own corruption and love of fascism for everybody to see clearly. Read and reread that tweet, people. “I LOVE THE IRS!!!” That’s your government and the types that support it, cheering on bureaucrats that abuse their power.

    • Cat2727

      You are correct — the empty heart and arrogant disregard from these Hollywood types is showcased by Twitter.

    • Craig Jacobs

      People can be such morons. Will she still love the IRS if an ultra conservative administration were to use the IRS to investigate liberal and progressive groups? The use of federal administrations to target any political group is a very very bad thing. The idea tht if your team is in charge then it’s all good is disgusting. Ah well, nothing to see here, back to your telescreens.

      • jeanbean14

        Good point. But the likelihood of an actually conservative administration doing this is really slim.

    More and more this is looking like 1934 Germany. The media and the entertainment industry praised, supported and covered for the Nazis too. Then when the Nazi gained total and complete control they attacked and shut them down. We now see this administration attacking the Associated Press,,,can’t wait to see what the Trolls in Hollywood will say when the Taxes and Controls hit them. But by that time America will be so far gone it won’t matter.

    • Selma Birch

      You would think that Bette being Jewish would make her think before she supports the same NAZI SOCIALIST PARTY that tried to exterminate her entire race, If the first mega socialist leader Hitler had his way she wouldn’t be here to support this current Hitler follower Obama!!! She wins the award for being stupid unto death!!!

  • radjahshelduck

    One wonders if Ms. Midler understands that it is the government itself that defines what a non-profit organization is. It’s like saying “How could someone as young as 35 possibly have the wisdom to be the President?” when it’s right there in the Constitution that a person can be President at that age.

  • indyted

    Hey Bette, what happens to conservatives today WILL happen to you tomorrow. Happy with that?? It may have already happened……..ask the AP.

And yes we all know that Obama is the First person to hold the Office in D.C., that is a Marxist. You won’t answer this will you…
    When all a human being does is associate its self with is money and socializing and they’ve never so much as sweated a days work, yet goes around trying to say they didn’t say this and gives no explanation to the people about why …

    Why would Obama write “White Folks Greed” in one of his autobiographies?
    Taken from his book and in his own words: “Dreams From My Father” page 158 of 235 PDF Form:
    “It is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more food in a day
    than most residents of Port-au-Prince see in a year,
    where white folks’ greed runs a world in need,
    apartheid in one hemisphere, apathy in another hemisphere…

    hmmm…I won’t pretend to be an expert on tax law, but I don’t see how Organizing For Action is NOT a political organization. The emails I receive every day are prompting political activity and seeking to achieve the president’s agenda of gun control, tax increases, implementation of Obamacare, etc. If OFA is a legit 501c4, then almost any group doing what what we’ve seen the tea party groups do over the last few years shouldn’t even get a 2nd look.

    • OLLPOH

      Scott Heckman here is a good resource for leftist 501c4,
      http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/summary.asp?object=Organization&category=
      the part that Obama wants everyone to think, and we repeat “Think” is that this is inappropriate and not illegal. And he is Not party to any of this, even though he is traceable to it. Remember he stated yesterday that, “If this is really going on then it needs to be fully investigated and corrected/fixed”… Like, he was totally unaware of his politicking minions don’t exist or were Not in on any of this, as I am President, see I look Presidential and Focus on me, and it just so happened that there was a George Bush person at the IRS, so it must have been because of that person associated with Bush. See, I Am The Almighty “The Fixer”.
      He has been traced down to have had/and does have associations to George Soros, Bill Ayers, Henry Louis Gates, etc. And believes because they have big $$$, and are for his Little People or his HaveNot-ters, and they’ve been to Law Schools, then he thinks he’s UnTouchable… It is Marxism, CronyCaptilism, Fascism.

  • George Murrey

    According to Bette, if you are a conservative group you should pay your “fair share.” But, if you belong to any lib group you get a pass. So, I’m thinking she belongs to one of these groups, maybe more than one, she gets a pass. Nice try Bette, if it’s good for the goose, it’s good for the gander. But, the real law says all, unfortunately the libs as well, groups that file for non tax status gets it.

This moron can’t see a time when exactly what she says she likes could work in reverse against her — if she, and other liberals COULD see that second-order level, they would oppose this government corruption and overreach with every fiber of their being. Sadly, they’re simply a waste of oxygen at this point.

    Twitter is the great equalizer and allows sane individual to see the self absorb spew their nonsense unfiltered.

  • Shaun Dudash

    I think Bette is pretty confused. 1. tea party and conservative organizations do not promote general welfare. They promote the concept that you have a larger tax base by crating jobs and decreasing the number of people on general welfare. 2. If the IRS were investigating non-profits that promote general welfare Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, Eric Holder, many of your liberal Hollywood friends and much of the Democrat party would be investigated for wrong doing as a non-profit. I have a suspicion that many would be caught too.

    Bette Midler lives so high in the clouds she’s not in the least concerned about spitting in the face of a large section of her used to be fans, or the fact that she’s spewing a facist point of view. I wonder if she supported the IRS when Nixon used them against people? She didn’t, so she’s proven herself to be a partisan, left wing extremist hypocrite talking through her arse. I guess she thinks MoveOn.org and all the rest promote the general welfare? Truth is, she doesn’t have half a clue what she’s talking about. It is mind twisting to realize just how clueless and stupidly ignorant she is. Stunning really.

  • kobrien674

    P,S. Did anyone really think Midler could sing. Her pitch was horrible and she could hardly carry a tune. She was liked because she was funny in her self deprication. She was just considered a 3 stooges type. Funny and stupid. Now she’s just stupid.

    I would say boycott Bette Midler but she’s already been tossed on the scrap heap some years ago. Another inconsequential former celeb looking to re-ignite something by saying stupid things.

  • Cat2727

    Another demonstration of the raw contempt and utter loathing these Hollywood elitist airheads have not only for the Constitution and Bill of Rights upon which this nation was founded, but for human beings who they consider “lower” than themselves, the little guy that thinks differently than themselves.
    Never a fan anyway…

    This is not surprising about the IRS. I have seen corrupt government officials and have had to deal with them first hand. If you don’t agree with the corruptness of government, then they will target you. http://www.redbackpack.info

    I don’t know, Bette, why don’t you ask MoveOn, the Tides Foundation, and the NAACP? Apparently, they’ve figured out to make an end-run around the law, so they could probably answer your question with all their years of experience.

    Given the not-too-distant history of commie hunting in Hollywood, you’d think Ms. Midler would have a little more perspective on government singling out particular groups for illegal attention.

    But Ms. Midler may not have much perspective to work with.

      Oh, the McCarthy scare was just a feint because it target Hollywood. They are more than happy to engage in McCarthyism. In fact, they want to seize control of all branches of government with the expressed (oh how they have expressed it) intention of engaging in McCarthyism against their enemies (read enemies of all that is good).

    So, Bette is so far to the left that when the IRS apologizes, she’s saying that they have nothing to apologize for?

    Note to the Bette: Ask yourself the same question (“HOW CAN A POLITICAL ORGANIZATION BE CALLED A NON-PROFIT THAT PROMOTES GENERAL WELFARE??”) about Media Matters.

    midler is a singer, actress, and entertainer…she’s not a politician nor in any position of political power. her political opinions may be of some interest to her family, friends, and fans but why is her every utterance splashed across twitchy on a daily basis ?? this obsession with her tweets is getting kinda creepy.

  • Guest

    The NAACP is overtly and actively a component of the Democrat Party,
    how long before the IRS reconsiders that organization’s tax exempt status.

  • 1SkepticalChick

    Ummmmm…ACORN?

  • http://www.facebook.com/richard.jefferies.96 Richard Jefferies

    Yeah, don’t believe those silly voices that say the government out to get you. And as the Twitchy writer said, this would be totally cool under the Bush administration, right? No, it would not, but true believing, myrmidon zealots like Bette thank all Liberal group ARE in the best interest of everyone, while all conservative groups ARE NOT, and only it for selfish reasons; not like her who lives in who-knows-how-much per night Penthouse suites counting all her millions. So in her cognitive dissonance addled brain she would view the IRS going after ACORN or Planned Parenthood as an attack against decent people. In short, she’s a stupid hypocrite.

  • maisy

    We aready know liberals favor lawlessness…..but they can afford private security.
    Do they always have to display how pathetically stupid and antiAmerican they really are?

  • Stranded in Sonoma

    How can a political organization be called a non-profit that promotes the general welfare?

    Would someone please explain to me exactly what that means? How the hell does the general welfare have anything to do with non-profit status? Does she mean that because you want to help EVERYONE you can’t be non-profit? So you have to be locked into the specific welfare of a liberal grievance group to be non-profit? What a schmuck!

    Insurance companies are in the business of reducing given risks and transferring them, for a price. Non-profit advocacy groups are in the business of maximizing fears from given risks, in order to attract the donations that keep them going. Yet because the latter’s income is not called by the dreaded word ‘profit,’ they are considered to be doing something more noble.

    — Thomas Sowell

    Get a clue, Ms. Midler. Better yet, get a brain so the clue has a place to reside.

    So, according to bette, all those liberal organizations that are politically motivated and promote welfare should have their tax-exempt status removed. I agree.

    I love twitter! It gives us such a great window to the souls (rather lack there of) of the Hollywood elite so we know whose movies and plays not to attend, whose music, videos, and books not to buy, and whose television shows not to watch and whose sponsors to boycott. Keep it coming!

    Let me get this straight. Bette Midler, a Jew, loves the fact that the IRS is using Gestapo tactics on conservative groups?

    • Mark81150

      and Jewish pro Israel groups too.. seems the Obama Palestinian loving advisers have an issue with Jews supporting Israel..

      Every lunatic fringe hate group that Obama surrounds himself with seems to have an enemies list to persecute… But Bette’s fine with that..
