Bette Midler already sent her thanks to the IRS for targeting conservative groups, but in the two days since, we’ve learned a little more about what was going on. Even President Obama claimed that Americans should be angry about the IRS singling out groups for harassment and intimidation on an ideological basis, but Midler can’t contain her glee.

It’s OK that the IRS was delaying approval of groups with “patriot” on their applications while demanding reading lists, Facebook posts and children’s names, because the Tea Party promotes hate. Can you believe some of those tea-baggers were caught criticizing how the country is run? When is Obama going to put AttackWatch.com back up anyway?

    Sigh…. this is why most celebs should not tweet. Just exposes their ignorance. Just sing, dance, and act, and leave the real World to we adults, Bette.

        Unlike some conservatives who think the world is 6,000 years old, women’s bodies have a way of “shutting down” procreation in the event of a rape, and global warming is a “U.N. hoax.” They’re on top of everything. Oh, yeah, I almost forgot — gun control causes people to turn into homosexuals. I forgot which genius right-winger came out with that one last week, but you can look it up.

        • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

          Actually, no one thinks the world is 6,000 years old.. If you believe we believe that then you are absolutely ignorant. Todd Akin who said that the woman’s body shuts down in case of rape was turned against because none of us believe that. One person probably said that thing about gun control and gays, but that is just one person. Would you like me to pull out some gems that have been said by Lefties and claim your whole party believes them? I could find a heap from Biden and Obama alone. 😉 I mean you all of you Lefties believe there’s 57 states in the U.S. right?

        At least most on the left have enough collective brain cells to agree the world is more than 6,000 years old, and no: Jesus did not walk with the dinosaurs. I wouldn’t confuse intelligence with honesty on this issue. Just because she speaks what she things doesn’t make her stupid.

            This is sad that I know this, but through reading on the net I have come to realize too many people are under the impression that “thing” & “think” are the same word; And apparently “there” can also be used in place of “their” & “they’re”… “are” for “our” and “then” for “than”… I’ll stop there.

    ‘Hating’ the haters who have an opinion that differs from yours? Not an auspicious start…

    • debw777

      Who does the Tea Party hate? Cause I missed that memo.

      • Metro135

        Well, let’s see. Since they started to boo a gay veteran who dared to ask a question during one of the Republican primary debates, I think that’s a good place to start.

        • http://www.GONINERS.com/ Kristine

          Wait, just so I’m clear: “Booing” means “hate” in your world? Damn. I remember when booing something meant you just didn’t like what someone was saying or you disagreed with what they said. No one made the giant leap to “hate”.

          Sort of like everything that has to do with anyone who isn’t white, is “racist”.

          I find it endlessly fascinating that any “side” in politics thinks themselves and their “side” free of ethical hypocrisies.

          How does making a leap from “boo” to “hate” help anything?

          In fact, how does rambling about Republicans allegedly believing the world is 6k years old, Jesus walked with dinosaurs, and that gun control makes people gay, help anything? How is that not massive ignorance, profiling, and arrogance, therefore hypocrisy?

          If that’s true about Republicans then it follows that it must be true that Democrats are all environmental terrorists who burn people’s homes and spike trees in order to murder people and destroy property.

          Why is there such a huge divide and lack of solutions in this country? Just look at the crap all of you spew. ALL of you.

          I think it’s funny you say that. (Edit: I just wanted to point out that I really did laugh at your comment. Out loud.) Since these women are celebrities who survive on their fame and the publicity they manage to generate, I believe I can safely say that I know FAR MORE about them than they do about me. So it doesn’t make a hill of beans’ difference to me that they don’t like me. They are completely free to feel however they choose about me or any other topic. That doesn’t mean I must agree with them, and as a conservative, I don’t, which is what makes people like Bette so irate that they resort to tweeting about how much we “hate.”

      “Fascism :A system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator, stringent socioeconomic controls, suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism

      So let’s see, according to Bush, “I’m the Decider.” Wasn’t that the phrase he used? Yep, that’s it. Socioeconomic controls: subsidies to oil companies making record profits. Lying us into a war mainly for the benefit of those aforementioned oil companies, because that’s all they really wanted out of Iraq. Oh, and of course Halliburton also made a fortune out of it. Just a coincidence that Cheney was once an executive there I guess. Remember the statement “if you’re not with us you’re against us?” The Patriot Act, which allowed the government to read your emails? Sounds like suppression of the opposition through censorship to me. Then there were all the bogus “terror alerts” before the 2004 election, which ended, mysteriously, soon afterward. Nothing like a little “terror” to stir things up. Or the thugs who threw people who dared protest the war out of Bush campaign stops during the 2004 election.

    MIDLER IS OLD, STUPID. Seriously stupid. She’s gone from amusing gay bathhouse chanteuse sensation via Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy teetering on platform shoes, buoyed by bawdy ‘tit’ jokes that tickled Johnny Carson’s fancy to old guard, progressive, over the top liberal Commiewood hack. What else can you say? What you can do is ignore her films, books, DVD’s, etc. She’s a traitor to her countrymen if she feels an elected President who took the oath of office to protect America and her assests (Us!) has the right to resort to punitive (Sequester) and anti-American, tyrannical behavior (HIS use of the IRS to target Consevatives, sping on the AP) with impunity. She’s obviously a stupid woman who has not studied history and she’s Jewish so that makes her doubly stupid. And she hasn’t studied where her party began and where it has now ended up.

    As an actress she may have inadvertently grown into the greatest role she could have ever hoped for, one she’s searched for all her life considering her despicable off the wall remarks about those fellow Americans who have made her wealthy and who just happen to disagree with her skewed vision for America and her willingness to turn her back on her party’s corruption. Especially considering that as a very wealthy woman, whatever mistakes she endorses, will never effect her own life one iota. She’ll never need to live on ‘ObamaCare.’ Her baby’s neck won’ t be snipped by a lunatic or yanked out of her at some abortion mill that her party has given ‘respectability’ to by association, funded and which lurks as the most dangerous obstacle of the unborn with the pleasantly benign name: Family Planning. She’s ready for the role that will finally deliver the Oscar to her mantlepiece: THE NANCY PELOSI STORY: DIMENTIA UNLEASHED

    On what planet to members of he TEA party hate,Bette? It stands for Taxed Enough Already and as far as I know welcomes anyone who is opposed to big government and wants to see the constitution upheld. Try not getting your news from Colbert and Stewart.

    Poor, Bette. Obviously, she has her facts skewed. The one good thing about twitter is that it allows sane individuals to experience first hand the self absorbed who truly have no understanding of the issues facing law abiding citizens. We must thank her though for making it easy to walk past her next project without plunking down our hard earned dollars so that she can demean and degrade those who have helped her acquire the cushy life!

    Perhaps the IRS should overtax the rich in the entertainment industry. Unlike the Tea Party, they can actually spare the cash. I also seem to recall about 99% of them claiming to be the 99% last year and wanting to be taxed more… and then looking the other way when Hollywood got a huge tax-break in the last fiscal cliff deal.

  • Derelictus

    What exactly has the Tea Party ever done that would constitute “hate”? Campaigning for lower taxes and the right to bear arms? Having the occasional genuine anti-Semite wander into their midst (compare to OWS, where anti-Semitic conspiracy theory views were essentially required to join in on the marches)? Liberals confound me.

  • Bill in California

    Bette Midler is stupid. 90% of “progressive” groups are all about HATE. Hate against white people, hate against the wealthy, hate against men, hate against religion, hate against responsibility and accountability, hate against hard work, and hate against reality.

    • unknown

      Regarding your “hate against religion” entry, it should be changed to hate against Christianity.

        Oh Democrats hate Judaism too. Well, those not of the Jewish faith, that is. That’s why they’re against Israel.

    Again. Why is it OK in the liberal mindset for government to lie, cheat and steal as long as it’s a Democrat that does it?

    If the IRS attacked Media Matters, OFA, Planned Parenthood, George Soros because of their politics, the meltdown would be EPIC.

    Your hypocrisy is staggering.

  • Canadian in USA

  • http://twitter.com/IMHO_SaysMe Robin

    I think it’s clear now that Ms Midler is depraved and one of those ‘extreme fanatics’–a minority and who hates America!

    • Womyn2me

      Which minority is Bette Midler?

      • http://twitter.com/IMHO_SaysMe Robin

        extreme fanatic…she is way off and out there on this issue and she subscribes to putting chains on Americans wanting to exercise their constitutional rights. She claims to be an avid reader, but yet seems to have her head deep in the sandbox regarding this white house scandal. Why do liberals spew such hate all the time? When things are going their way, they still have to be so hateful and when things fall apart in their world, their hatred is even more vile-against their fellow Americans. I am not much younger than Ms Midler and I enjoyed her singing and humor in the past. But not so much anymore.
        She is entitled to her opinion as am I and all Americans. She is mean-spirited; not funny. She has squandered her once gifted voice; now she sounds insanely ugly. She looks down on us who think and live differently from her-yet she valued our money paid for her work. Why she thinks it is kind, right and smart to alienate a portion of the American public is beyond me! Maybe she is just so full of hate, she can no longer contain it.

    IRS stalled conservative groups, but gave speedy approval to Obama foundation
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/irs-stalled-conservative-groups-but-gave-speedy-approval-to-obama-foundation/2013/05/16/90c53e8a-be57-11e2-89c9-3be8095fe767_story.html

    The 34 days the IRS’s Cincinnati office took to process the foundation’s application stands in contrast to the waits of several months — and sometimes longer than a year — that several conservative groups say they experienced with the same office. Obama has apologized, saying Americans have a right to be angry that the office improperly targeted conservative groups for extra scrutiny.

  • CherDash

    If it’s OK for the IRS to target haters, Hollywood is a perfect place for them to look. Plenty of haters in Hollyweird, they hate anyone who doesn’t agree with them.

  • DesertSun59

    I’m elated that the IRS targeted them. They’re fronting Koch money anyway. These so-called Tea Party groups are doing nothing other than funneling millions of their dollars in donations to stop our government from being effective, leaving us with a barely functional government as a result.

    I call shenanigans on Teatards. They’re attempting to force anarchy on us all because of their ignorance and paranoia about reality.

      The Obama government does not need anyone’s help to be ineffective. It’s doing just fine on that front all by itself. :)

      Isn’t there an equivalent to Godwin’s Law wherein the first person to mention the Koch brothers is deemed to be a loser?

      The government is NOT effective. It needs to be reformed and made smaller (trillions of $$ would be saved). Are you on drugs? Wait don’t answer that. I have my answer.

    These liberal actors, singers, and otherwise-employed entertainers think that if they believe it and say it, then it (whatever “it” is) must be true. When people disagree, they pitch a fit and holler-tweet (a nod to Bette’s ALL-CAPS) that the dissenters are “hating.” Well, I say that all their carrying on equates to a two-year-old’s tantrum in the middle of a grocery store when he doesn’t get candy. Come on, Bette. Quit banging your head on the floor, dear. Put on your big girl panties and realize that you aren’t at the center of the universe.

    Can anyone out there find a quote from the Tea Party that mentioned anything about hating anyone?

  • Guest

    Wow, for people who claim to hate ‘hating’ there seems to be a hell of a lot of hating and trolling happening against Bette! And the only reason for it, you don’t agree with her opinion. You say how much of a has-been she is and how she is so irrelevant and yet the comments on here are coming thick and fast and to be honest are vile. Doesn’t quite make sense if she is so ‘irrelevent’ I thought America was the land of free speech. Which apparently it is unless you don’t agree with whats been said.

    Shocked and appalled by this site! More to the point disapointed in a country I looked up to.

    I am so tired of really arrogant people who really don;t have a clue. the Tea party was only about a couple things-not leaving our kids with unpayable debt for really stupid things and making sure our elected leaders do their jobs. Where the “hate” comes in-well who knows. Crazy people out there willing to lie and believe lies and it is getting weirder and weirder.
