The IRS Scandal
Judaism and the "Liberal" Religion
The atrocities committed by the Internal
Revenue Service by attempting to inhibit freedom of expression and the right to
freely engage in political activity unfortunately
devolves upon several Jewish or formerly Jewish employees of the government.
This has come about as so many Jews have become fanatic “liberals”, a
philosophy akin to fascism (No, not Nazism).
It takes little knowledge of the
American Jewish community to recognize that a majority of the descendants of the
eastern European Jews have converted from Judaism to liberalism.
This is not an exaggeration. Consider
that sociologists view religion to have two functions. The first is to bind
people together in common traditions and common ethics. The Latin origin of the
word religion is Res Ligare or the thing that binds. The words “league” as
well as “ligament” are derived from that Latin origin. The Roman author
Marcus Cicero in his book “De Natura Deorum” or “On the Nature of the
Gods” writes that the word religion may also be derived from relegere or “to
read again,” inasmuch as religious folks read the same tracts again and again.
Now it is evident that “liberals”
are associated with one another in political organizations of many kinds which
have in common some fundamental liberal beliefs similar to religious beliefs.
Just as Torah true Jews believe that only kosher food may be eaten, so liberals
believe that a vast government ought to rule every aspect of our lives. Just as
Jews generally believe that adultery is a serious offense, so liberals believe
that the individual is unimportant and that bureaucrats have the right to
dictate to all of us. It is held liberal to suppress opinions not in agreement
with liberal views, even as Judaism insists that all opinions must be heard and
expressed, as is visible by reading the Talmud (If you don’t know what the
Talmud is, ask a rabbi).
When we look at the names of the would
be dictators within the IRS, we are appalled to read the names of Douglas
Shulman, Steve Miller, Lois Lerner, and a host of others of Jewish descent, if
This should not be surprising to
anyone who has followed American politics over the years. Jews foolishly have
supported all those who, contrary to Thomas Jefferson’s (third president of
the U.S.) warning that that government is best which governs the least, have
subscribed to the opposite.
Yet, Jewish history proves that the
Jewish community is worst off in any overbearing government and is best situated
in a land whose government is restrained and observes the tenets (tenare=to
hold) of democracy.
The IRS bosses have admitted that they
targeted so called “conservative” organizations seeking tax exempt status by
delaying their applications for years, by asking all-intrusive questions
concerning individual political and even religious beliefs, and by using the
power of the IRS to punish the use of the First Amendment to the U.S.
Consider “Z Street.” That is a
Zionist organization which defends the right of Israel to disagree with the
Obama administration concerning Jewish “settlements” and other issues.
Therefore the IRS has refused to give “Z Street” tax exempt status and even
went so far as to accuse “Z Street” of being a terrorist organization. The
IRS admitted that such tax exempt status would not be accorded any organization
which contradicts administration policies.
“Z Street” has succeeded in gaining an opportunity to put an end to this flagrant violation of the Constitution. On July 2, 2013, “Z Street” will be given a hearing in the federal district court in the District of Columbia concerning “viewpoint discrimination.”
Meanwhile the Congress of the United States is investigating the conduct of the IRS, which is unfortunately administered by so many Jewish sounding named executives.
The lesson is clear. The Jewish community has grossly failed to support its own interests by constantly voting and supporting dictatorial ideologues and their anti-Jewish friends, including the majority of Democrats, who have repeatedly told the Gallup poll that they do not support the right of Israel to exist.
Let us hope that the members of Congress now investigating the IRS put an end to the Obama administration's undemocratic tactics, thereby saving the Jewish community from itself.
