NAACP Chairman: The Tea Party is our Taliban
Scandal Fever has hit Capital Hill and the investigation into the IRS unfairly targeting Tea Party groups is one of the hottest. Julian Bond, Chairman Emeritus of the NAACP had some very cold words on the matter:
I mean, here are a group of people who are admittedly racist, who are overtly political, who tried as best they can to harm President Obama in every way they can, ... They are the Taliban wing of American politics and we all ought to be a little worried about them." - Julian Bond
"Truth hurts," according to Bond.
While Bond doesn't feel that the there was any wrong doing by the IRS, it will be up investigators to discover the truth. Only time will tell if this is the big moment before President Obama reveals that this whole time he was a patriot-shaming, constitution-hating, African-born-socialist.
