Whom Do Democrat Progressives Hate The Most? Ask An IG

J Russell George, Treasury Inspector
 General for Tax Administration
 by Bill Smith: While there could be numerous possibilities for "whom progressive democrats hate," it appears that the answer in regard to the "whom do they hate the most" is reserved for former democrats who became conservative, constitutional liberty minded Republicans.

It also seems that the roots of the KKK, founded by democrats, still runs deep in the bowels of the democratic party. A few names of black conservatives who have experienced vitriol by democrats in their past  are Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, former UN Ambassador, former HUD Undersecretary  and conservative writer J. Ken Blackwell, former welfare mom and conservative spokesperson Star Parker, retired Lt. Col and former U.S. Representative Allen West (R-FL), former OU Quarterback and former U.S. Representative J.C. Watts (R-OK), conservative speaker, radio show host and former candidate for the Republican presidential nomination Herman Cain, and current U.S Senator Tim Scott (R-SC).

While the these individuals are not discussed below, They were mentioned because their experiences shed light on the democrat reactions to the recent report on the IRS by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration.  Today, the Washington Post reported that "Two House Democrats on Thursday called for an investigation of a federal auditor who accused the Internal Revenue Service of gross mismanagement and targeting advocacy groups for extra scrutiny based on their names and policy positions. Reps. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) and Matt Cartwright (D-PN.) on Wednesday filed a complaint with a special watchdog council questioning the independence of Treasury Department inspector general J. Russell George.

"The congressmen, both of whom serve as top Democrats on House oversight committees, said George produced a “fundamentally flawed performance audit” that was “incomplete” and “outright misleading.” They also alleged that he held briefings with Republican members of the House Oversight Committee without the knowledge of Democrats on the panel. . . .

"The inspector general’s report, released in May, said the IRS “used inappropriate criteria that identified for review Tea Party and other organizations applying for tax-exempt status.” Earlier that month, then-IRS official Lois Lerner alluded to the findings when she acknowledged in response to a planted question that the agency had targeted groups with “tea party” and “patriot” in their names."

Obviously, the two House Democrats on the Oversight Committee are not happy with the report of the Inspector Generals office and are determined to tarnish the inspector general by using words like "outright misleading."   This tempest in the teapot is also  stirred by House Oversight Committee member Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD).

It is indeed interesting that the Obama administration has "moved on" and directed the "Treasury Department to draft a new guideline to distinguish what types of political activities disqualify groups from tax-exempt status." This means that they are proposing IRS Rules that codify the actions and  procedures  which have already been found to be  offensive to freedom of speech, and potentially unconstitutional.

Also, note that President Obama has failed to nominate individuals for l various other government agencies Inspector General positions. The people would have been providing audit reports to their agency and to Congress.

Who is Treasury Inspector General J. Russell George? of importance to this article, he was a Democrat who became a  Republican. Also, Mr. George is a conservative black Republican serving in the Obama administration and he is protected by his appointment as an  inspector general.

In a July, 2013  the Washington Post reported, that "Treasury inspector general J. Russell George . . .  [was] a Democrat before becoming a Republican.

"The IRS watchdog, a former staffer for Sen. Bob Dole who was appointed to his current position by President George W. Bush, told the House Oversight committee that he was a page for the 1980 Democratic National Convention and that he was a founder of the Howard University College Democrats during his time at the school. 'I saw the light and joined Bob Dole’s staff during college,' George said.

"David Hayes, one of George’s classmates at Howard University who now clerks for a federal judge in Buffalo, confirmed in an interview with the Washington Post that George helped found the Democratic club."

It is quite obvious that the Obama administration is not happy about the facts uncovered at the Internal Revenue Service and reported by the IG.   Instead of acknowledging the problem and committing to correcting the situation,  they opt to attack both the report and the messenger.    And, based on the history of the democratic party, their vitriol and contempt is increased by the fact that J. Russell George is a black conservative who left the Democrat Party to become a Republican.

I salute Mr. J. Russell George for doing right by his position and authority to report on what  happened at the IRS regarding denial of tax exemption status to conservative organizations and other issues..  Also, it is  long overdue for Democrats to stop their extreme prejudice against blacks who leave the Democrat Party.
Bill Smith is editor of the ARRA News Service - Historical note: It was the Republican Party that opposed slavery and wrote both civil rights bills which were opposed by democrats.

Question asked by Paul Ross and posted on the WP article:
Why has it taken so long for the FBI to even question the groups who were targeted by the IRS? So far the majority of the groups have not even been questioned by the FBI to gather any facts about why they think they were targeted.

Holder is trying to slow walk the investigation until the statute of limitations expires.
