When the Civil War ended, and after Republican President Abraham Lincoln liberated the slaves in the south, Democrats initiated Jim Crow laws to punish blacks. Democrats discriminated against blacks. In fact, the KKK, was founded as the the terrorist wing of the Democrat Party.

The Ku Klux Klan assassinated many Republicans including Republican Representative James M. Hinds (December 5, 1833—October 22, 1868) of Little Rock. Hinds represented Arkansas in the United States Congress from June 24, 1868 through October 22, 1868.

Despite the facts…
Corrupt Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) accused the Tea Party of being the same group of “White Crackers” who fought against Civil Rights.
TPM reported:

In an interview with the Daily Beast published Friday, Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) suggested Tea Partiers are the “same group” who fought for segregation during the Civil Rights movement.

“It is the same group we faced in the South with those white crackers and the dogs and the police. They didn’t care about how they looked,” Rangel said.

Because of this, Rangel said the Tea Party could be defeated using the same tactics employed against Jim Crow.

Lois Lerner, the controversial director of the tax-exempt organizations division at the Internal Revenue Service, has a long sordid history of targeting conservatives.

Under the direction of Lois Lerner, the Federal Election Commission sued the Christian Coalition in the 1990s. She harassed the Christian Coalition for three election cycles. Eventually, she lost her case. At one point Lerner even asked a targeted conservative if Pat Robertson prayed over him. (Sound familiar?)

n 1996, while at the FEC, Lois Lerner harassed Republican Senate candidate Al Salvi and made him this outrageous offer, “Promise me you will never run for office again, and we’ll drop this case.” One of Lerner’s minions even asked Salvi to fork over $200,000 with his promise not to run again.

In May Lois Lerner refused to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. She pleaded the Fifth.

Now this…
E-mails Suggest Collusion Between FEC, IRS to Target Conservative Groups Documentation suggests that Lois Lerner and the IRS unlawfully shared confidential tax information with the FEC.

Today Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) and Oversight Subcommittee Chairman Charles Boustany Jr., M.D. (R-LA) sent a letter to IRS chief Danny Werfel demanding communications between the IRS and FEC from 2008 to 2012. The GOP leaders accuse the IRS of colluding with the FEC against conservatives.

Capitol Hill police are trying to block activists attending Wednesday’s “Audit the IRS” rally from also attending a nearly day-long press conference on immigration, hosted by Reps. Steve King and Louie Gohmert. The IRS rally is on the west side of the Capitol, while the immigration event is on the east side. Organizers for the IRS event were told by Hill police that “your people” can only assemble on the west side. Organizers were told to remove the activists from the immigration event.

Capitol Hill police left a voicemail for Kevin Mooneyhan, Deputy Executive Director of Tea Party Patriots, saying that “your people” only are permitted to assemble for the event on the west side of the Capitol. The activists’ presence at the immigration event on the east side, supposedly violates the terms of the Tea Party’s permit. Mooneyhan was instructed to move any activists who planned on attending the Tea Party rally away from the immigration event.

Keep in mind, the immigration event is hosted by sitting members of Congress. The notion that citizens can’t attend an event featuring duly elected Representatives in a public space is absurd.

“The Capitol police are violating our rights to assembly and association,” Mooneyhan told Breitbart News. “How does our permit limit the rights of individuals to attend public events. It’s intimidation.”

What: Audit the IRS Rally
When: Wednesday, June 19, 2013 from Noon – 2pm
Where: West Lawn of the US Capitol

The time has come for men and women of integrity, with an unwavering commitment to freedom and the Constitution in their hearts, to come together once again, en masse, to show the ruling class in DC that their long train of abuses has come to an end.

Join Tea Party Patriots and many others for an Audit the IRS rally on the west lawn of the Capitol in Washington, DC on Wednesday, June 19, 2013 at high noon.

The members of the ruling class, from both parties, are outing themselves in the wake of scandal after scandal, as they seek to do damage control and circle the wagons around each other. That foul stench emanating from Washington, DC is the fear they have of losing their power. For four years, the tea party movement has been sounding the alarm that big government is out of control in every way, in every department, in every agency, in every branch of government, and in every party.

Which scandal gets under your skin the most?

Is it Fast and Furious? Is it Benghazi? What about the State Department covering up misconduct and halting investigations? The NSA spying on innocent Americans.

What about the IRS targeting, discriminating against, and oppressing the speech of conservative and tea party groups? Or perhaps the IRS illegally leaking confidential donor information of conservative groups to their political opponents? Or maybe it’s the fact that the IRS spent $50 million in two years on conferences, parties, and really awful parody videos for their employees? Could it be the IRS stealing millions of private medical records? Or was it when the federal government asked American citizens for the content of their prayers.
