[WATCH] People sign “Thank you IRS” card for targeting Tea Party groups

Thank You IRS Card YouTube May 2013As one conservative pundit found out, not all Americans are angry with the Internal Revenue Service for improperly targeting conservative groups. In fact, some are so thankful that they’re willing to sign their name on a thank you card to the agency.

Caleb Bonham, a conservative pundit, filmed a YouTube video of several people at Colorado University in Boulder signing a “Thank You IRS!” card to see what they really thought about the scandal.

Bonham was not only able to get people to sign the card, but many of them also adamantly agreed that the “Tea Party deserved” to be placed under extra scrutiny or have non-profit applications be held up. 

“I think this is pretty rad,” one man said of the IRS’s unfair targeting of Tea Party groups.

One person even though it was a “fake scandal” and that it made sense to prosecute the groups.

“I thought it was pretty funny,” another woman says in the video. “The IRS was actually like doing the right thing but the wrong thing at the same time.”

Several high-ranking officials have apologized for the agency’s actions, and the head of the department overseeing non-profit agencies, Lois Lerner, was placed on administrative leave with pay last week for refusing to resign in light of the scandal.

Bonham’s video was sponsored by The Centennial Institute, a think tank based out of Colorado Christian University, to help promote their 2013 Western Conservative Summit.

Watch people thank the IRS below.

    Well, thank you for creating a list of Liberals/unAmericans. Can’t wait for these idiots to get targeted.

    What bothers me is that when those socialists get their agenda completely implemented and it takes the whole damn country down (see: “Soviet Union”), it’s going to pull the rest of us down into the abyss with it.

  3. Beverly says:

    It saddens me there are so many ignorant people in this country. They are happy a powerful government agency is abusing it’s power and violating the law when they target people for what they represent or what political party they support? I’d love to know whether the signers who are so against the Tea Party have ever attended a Tea Party rally. I would bet the only information they have comes from liberal professors and the liberal media, that are merely carrying water for the current administration and pushing a the progressive socialist agenda.

      Tragically, there really are people who are so lame that they’re not willing to grow up and make their own decisions. They’re just happy as clams to stay babies under the care of the nanny state. Of course, when the nanny state goes broke and there isn’t any welfare left, they’ll be the first ones to riot in the streets and burn down their own homes.
