It should be no surprise to anyone following us that we were one of the groups targeted by the IRS. Brian Sikma at Media Trackers writes about the story here. You can see the enemies list here.
What is amazing is that virtually no local media has even contacted the RRP for any comment about the story, or even covered the story. I think this is just another example of the bias we see in the local and national media. They seek to control the flow of information and content as it suits their agenda. Take notice at how much coverage you see in local media about some questionable environmental cause. A handful of people get together to whine about something and the media is there to hype the non-story.
The government targeting individual groups because of their political views IS A STORY! No matter your political affiliation, it should scare you to death…if you have a conscience (I know that excludes many on the left). This is the kind of thing you see in the 3rd world, not a first world nation like the United States. Sadly, many will choose to look at the issue of this being about obtaining non-profit status, instead of seeing how once again the government has violated the rights of its citizens.
Take notice…if they can do it to us, they will do it to you.
