House Democrats call for stripping tax-exempt status from 60 ‘hate groups’
Washington Examiner ^ | September 19, 2019 | Nihal Krishan

Posted on 09/20/2019 4:27:11 AM PDT by gattaca

House Democrats on the Ways and Means Committee said on Thursday that over 60 alleged hate groups, mostly socially conservative organizations, anti-immigration entities, and religious groups should be stripped of their tax-exempt status.

(5/5): These remarks are vile and only work to perpetuate hate crimes and stir division. There is no reason the U.S. government should continue to subsidize groups like these – Ways & Means Dems are shining a light on this issue today.

— Ways & Means Committee (@WaysMeansCmte) September 19, 2019 Some of the bigger organizations on the list include the fundamentalist Protestant group American Family Association, which opposes gay rights, the anti-immigration organization Federation for American Immigration Reform, the conservative think tank the Center for Security Policy, and the socially conservative group the Family Research Council. The groups were designated as "hate groups" by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a group that itself is controversial and whose founder was fired this year for misconduct.

The Ways and Means Oversight Subcommittee held a hearing Thursday focused on “How The Tax Code Subsidizes Hate,” at which Democrats said they were concerned about the government subsidizing groups that millions of Americans would find abhorrent and Republicans said they feared that First Amendment rights could be infringed ending some groups' tax-exempt status.

The subcommittee heard from multiple victims of mass shootings, who shared their stories and asked the congressmen to take legislative action to eliminate the tax benefits given to nonprofit groups that may proliferate hate and discrimination.

No legislation has been proposed at the moment.

Typical of today's social-media Democrats. The last thing they want is a standup vote on specific legislation.

I got a way better idea, stripe tax exempt status from all organizations. Just eliminate the status altogether and tax not-for-profits on retained earnings or net assets - no exceptions.

They are changing the definition of “hate” to mean “any opposition”. They have a long-term strategy stirring up enough hate in their base to lead to violence against their opponents.

They are also projecting that “all hate is bad”. That is an anti-Christian attitude. “The fear of the Lord is to HATE evil.” (Pro 8:13) and “You who love the Lord, HATE evil!” (Psalm 97:10) The “Hate has no place here” signs really mean “God has no place here.”

But we take hope. “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first.” (John 15:18)

This move means Obama’s hand is still in the till. Read on.

Obama Declares War On ‘Extremism’ – Are You An ‘Extremist’
FR Posted 1/13/15 by seekandfind

Obama compiled a list of 72 types of Americans that are considered to be “extremists” or “potential terrorists” in official U.S. government documents. This list will really give you a good idea of what Barack Obama means when he uses the word “extremist”. Each of these 72 items is linked (at web site). As you can see, this list potentially includes most of the country…


<><>Those that talk about “individual liberties,” that advocate for states’ rights, that want “to make the world a better place,” that are interested in “defeating the Communists”

Those that believe “that the interests of one’s own nation are separate from the interests of other nations or the common interest of all nations.”

<><>Anyone opposed to Agenda 21, anyone concerned about FEMA camps, that “fears impending gun control or weapons confiscations,” the militia movement, sovereign citizen movement, that “don’t think they should have to pay taxes”

<><> Anyone that “complains about bias,” that “believes in government conspiracies, that “is frustrated with mainstream ideologies,” that “visits extremist websites/blogs,” that “establishes website/blog to display extremist views,” that “attends rallies for extremist causes,” that “exhibits extreme religious intolerance,” that is personally connected with a grievance,” that “suddenly acquires weapons,” that “organizes protests inspired by extremist ideology”

<><> “Militia or unorganized militia,” “General right-wing extremist,” Citizens that have “bumper stickers” that are patriotic or anti-U.N., those that refer to an “Army of God,” that are “fiercely nationalistic (as opposed to universal and international in orientation),” that are “anti-global,” that are “suspicious of centralized federal authority,” that “revere individual liberty,” that “believe in conspiracy theories”

<><>Those that have “a belief that one’s personal and/or national ‘way of life’ is under attack,” that possess “a belief in the need to be prepared for an attack either by participating in paramilitary preparations and training or survivalism,” that would “impose strict religious tenets or laws on society (fundamentalists)” that would “insert religion into the political sphere,” that would “seek to politicize religion,” that have “supported political movements for autonomy.”

<><>Anyone that is “anti-abortion.”
<><>Anyone that is “Rightwing” including “Returning veterans,” those concerned about “illegal immigration,” those that “believe in the right to bear arms,” anyone that is engaged in “ammunition stockpiling”

<><> Those that believe in “end times” prophecies, including Evangelical Christians.

The mask hasn’t slipped, it is OFF.
Essentially all opposition to the Democrat agenda is called a “Hate group.” Like every other socialist country all opposition is outlawed. Lefty is working towards a dictatorship: Total and utter control.

Do not be fooled. This may be our last vote between freedom and tyranny. Thank God for Trump. He may be our last hope.

Again, like Obama, they are trying to get the law - via the tax code - to choose which American opinions are “legal” or not.

The rats are trying to goad Trump into doing something stupid so they can impeach him. That’s all this is.
