TN IRS Victim: DC GOP Plays 'Tee Ball' While Dems Play 'Hardball'
The president of the Chattanooga Tea Party, who was targeted by the IRS, said establishment Republicans in Washington, D.C. are playing "Tee Ball" while Democrats are playing "hardball."
Speaking on "The David Webb Show" on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125 on Tuesday, West said when people like him complained to Members of Congress about being targeted by the IRS, 12 Republican senators ultimately wrote the IRS letters, but did not do anything when they did not get responses from the agency.
"Put down the plastic bats and pick up the [real] wood bats [to play hardball], or sit down and let others take a swing," he said.
West said it took over three years for his group to get tax-exempt status, and he emphasized that the IRS's targeting of conservatives was another example of the Obama administration "punishing" its enemies and "rewarding friends."
"The CEO of the company sets the tone," West said of President Barack Obama. "He runs the agencies directly or indirectly."
He said bureaucrats "hear his voice and actions," and they will either "align" with his agenda or "be out in the cold."
West said he would urge Republicans in Washington, D.C. to stop playing "Tee Ball" with ruthless Democrats when he speaks at the mass "Audit the IRS" rally in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday.
