The IRS 'Tax-Exempt' War on Conservative America Is Real and the Hypocrisy Is Dangerous


While Joe Biden’s laughably-named “Inflation Reduction Act” earmarks $80 billion for 87,000 additional IRS agents, raising fears that the influx of new agents will lead to increased audits of everyday Americans, the embattled agency’s targeting of conservative organizations, primarily 501(c)(3) status conservative non-profits, continues — while blatantly ignoring “tax-exempt” status of radical leftist organizations.


Enter: Black Lives Matter.

As reported by Front Page Magazine, the militant BLM Movement continues to battle lawsuits and accusations over tens of millions of dollars in retained assets. After raising $90 million, the racist hate group’s previous IRS filing shows it still retained $42 million in its coffers. The real story, noted Front Page Mag, is why a hate group known for inciting terrorism against America while flouting financial regulations was ever an IRS-approved tax-exempt “non-profit” in the first place. Great question. However, we all know the answer, as well as other answers to the troubling actions and inactions of America’s tax-collection service.

In this case, the answers are detailed in the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s latest pamphlet, Internal Radical Service written by Horowitz and Discover the Networks mastermind, John Perazzo.

From BLM to Zuckerbucks, Internal Radical Service exposes the leftist corruption and the selective enforcement by the IRS that enabled the hijacking of the tax code. While conservative organizations face relentless IRS investigations, radical leftist operations like Black Lives Matter are allowed to freely operate while dodging any consequences for even the worst abuses.

While American communities were burning, police officers were being murdered, and innocent people beaten in the streets, the IRS remained uninterested in the convoluted mechanisms through which the race riots were being funded and the race rioters were being enabled.


At issue? “White supremacy,” “systemic racism,” “inherent white racism,” and “black lives matter” more than white lives or any other lives, as George Orwell’s 1984 “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others” barndoor quotation suggested. That is the unacknowledged mindset of the IRS.

Horowitz and Perazzo wrote in Internal Radical Service:

Throughout the mayhem and criminal violence orchestrated by Black Lives Matter, the I.R.S and its commissioner, Charles Rettig, watched from afar and did nothing to prevent taxpayer monies from being used to bail out those Black Lives Matter thugs who had been arrested for breaking the law.

Tax code regulations specifically state that “exempt purposes may generally be equated with the public good, and violations of law are the antithesis of the public good,” as noted by Front Page Mag: “They clearly lay out that, ‘violation of constitutionally valid laws is inconsistent with exemption under IRC 501(c)(3)’ and that ‘planned activities that violate laws are not in furtherance of a charitable purpose.’”

Yet, despite ongoing BLM-related violence — exploiting the death of George Floyd to justify months of burning, looting, indiscriminate gunfire, and death — and the refusal of racist BLM leaders to condemn the violence or call for an end to the rioting, Internal Radical Service lays bare how the IRS failed to take action against BLM sponsors and enablers, and after the worst of the violence had ended, actually granted Black Lives Matter non-profit status, thus qualifying the hate group as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization. This is insane — and it could not be more obscenely blatant and wrong.


Via the pamphlet:

That newly conferred tax-exempt status made it legally necessary for BLM to submit an annual filing to the IRS known as Form 990, disclosing information about its donors and expenditures. But BLM submitted no such forms in either 2020 or 2021.

And as Front Page Mag noted, this is the same IRS that has targeted conservative non-profits while failing to hold Black Lives Matter accountable — even when millions were funneled to the family of its “trained Marxist” co-founder, Patrisse Cullors.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and ‘Zuckerbucks’

The IRS’s special treatment of Black Lives Matter and Patrisse Cullors extended to Mark Zuckerberg and others, as well. Horowitz and Perazzo delved into how the Facebook CEO funneled hundreds of millions of “Zuckerbucks” into the 2020 election to help the Democrats — with zero IRS red flags waved.

All these millions of Zuckerberg dollars, underwritten by American taxpayers, drew no attention from I.R.S. Commissioner Charles Rettig or the I.R.S. investigating teams whose responsibility it was to see that taxpayer-supported operations like the Zuckerberg ‘charities’ were not intervening in American election campaigns.

Finally, as Horrowitz wrote in the pamphlet’s introduction, in total we’re talking about a vast multi-billion-dollar network.


The existence of this multi-billion-dollar network of culture-shaping institutions and activists, beginning with the corruption of America’s universities and schools and their conversion into indoctrination and recruitment centers for anti-capitalist and anti-American causes, explains how the American spectrum has shifted away from the founding principles of the nation, transformed the Democrat Party, and led to the crises we face.

As I wrote in the headline, this stuff is real — and on a grander scale than most Americans realize. It is wrong and it must be stopped.
