FIRST THEY CAME FOR THE NON-PROFITS: ACLU slams Obama administration’s new IRS rules restricting nonprofit groups
ACLU said that the new “rule,” which is comprised of many different provisions, open the door to more of the kind of politically-motivated IRS targeting that snared conservative groups between 2010 and 2012.
ACLU also stated its “serious concerns with the rule… from a First Amendment perspective,” saying that “the proposed rule threatens to discourage or sterilize an enormous amount of political discourse in America,” and noted that even the ACLU Foundation’s activities would be negatively impacted.
Punish Silence your enemies.
