Newly released #IRS emails indicate Lois Lerner’s contempt for GOP

Via Fox News:

House Republicans have dug up emails from Lois Lerner in which the former IRS official refers to some in the Republican Party as “—holes” and “crazies” – an exchange they say shows her “animus” toward conservatives.

The November 2012 emails were released Wednesday by House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich., as part of his renewed call for the Justice Department to appoint a special counsel to investigate. Lerner is the ex-IRS official who led the unit accused of targeting conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status for extra scrutiny.

In the email exchange, Lerner appears to be chatting with another unidentified individual about a vacation in Great Britain. She describes how she overheard “some ladies” talking about how America is “going down the tubes.”

The person she tells this to responds that “you should hear the whacko wing of the GOP. The US is through; too many foreigners sucking the teat; time to hunker down, buy ammo and food, and prepare for the end. The right wing radio shows are scary to listen to.”

Lerner responds: “Great. Maybe we are through if there are that many —holes.”

After another email to her about how “rabid” the radio show callers are, Lerner responds: “So we don’t need to worry about alien teRrorists. (sic) It’s our own crazies that will take us down.”

The emails are being used by Camp to make the case that Lerner had a bias against conservatives – something congressional Republicans have long suggested as they push for the Justice Department to get more involved in reviewing the IRS scandal, and Lerner herself.

This is not exactly a surprising revelation, but my thought – and lemme know if you agree – is that the real “a**holes” and “crazies” out there are the ones who grossly abuse their positions of power in government in order to unlawfully target one political ideology over another.  Maybe that’s just me …

    The potential for government abuse has always been there, but with today’s political “correctness” and the implicit OK to use abuse as a weapon (think of the demonizing the administration does to ANYONE who disagrees with them) and the mental midgets with Napoleonic complexes and socialist beliefs that staff the counters of nearly every government agency at every level, and NO ONE TO STOP THEM FROM THEIR ABUSE OF THE CITIZENRY, it’s no wonder that Mr. My People refuses to appoint anyone as special prosecutor. That special prosecutor might just find that Mr. My People himself gave a verbal OK to Lois Lerner to abuse conservatives all she wanted to because he had her back. And, with morals lower than an alley cat, might have even had her backside, too.

  2. Drew the Infidel says:

    Lerner and the other communicant should seek professional help. Their exchange indicates a paranoia not unlike the Klan, preppers and random zanies all rolled into one.

    How could Lerner convince me that the Public sector is more efficient than the Private?
    Which one is more corrupt?
    Who prints money, takes out loans they NEVER will repay, and will retire early?

    @TomTB – she, of course, would argue (as her god and savior would, too) that the evil corruption of profits taken by such companies as Walmart and other Big Boxes (save Costco – they’re union!) is far more evil than anything the government under any Democrap has ever done.

    And it’s exactly the Napoleonic socialists like her at every level of government that will be our undoing, that and the government teat-suckers.
