MSNBC on IRS Scandal : THIS IS TYRANNY...

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough tore into the federal government over the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative groups.

In addition to calling the admitted actions “mind-boggling,” the personality highlighted the assertion that “this government is using the Internal Revenue Service to target people with whom they disagree.” Others, like co-host Willie Geist, jumped in to say that the collective actions constitute ”tyranny.”

“When it comes to political speech, it’s sacrosanct. Our founding fathers meant for it to be sacrosanct,” Scarborough said, going on the lambaste the IRS. “Liberal and conservative Supreme Courts alike do not allow the government to tread on political speech. There is a wall around that, and the wall has been knocked down by the IRS for several years now.”

Geist mirrored these sentiments, as did other “Morning Joe” panelists and co-hosts. While he noted that other claims about the government coming after guns have been overblown, the threat to free-speech posed by the IRS in this instance, in Geist’s view, is a true government-led assault.

“There’s been many overblown claims of tyranny and abuse of power from the government over the last few years. We’ve heard those. We’re coming for your guns — that kind of thing,” he said. “This is tyranny. If this is the government, a nonpartisan agency coming after specific groups, this time it’s real.”

Scarborough also called for Obama to “fire people” and to come out condemning the “unspeakable” actions of the IRS in the harshest terms possible. Rather than sitting back and ignoring the scandal, he implored the president to demand answers.

Watch the segment, below:

In light of recent developments, you'd think he would stop spending his time attacking the people who turned out to be correct and start attacking the corruption in DC.
Let me guess.... not a regular watcher?

Looks to me like he just admitted he views his job as that of a partisan shill.
And I’m sure his crowd laughed it up in approval.

That's honestly what it sounds like he was saying. Maybe he was being ironic or something. Humor doesn't always come through in print.

It's amazing how many careers were self-destructed after blindly following Obamugabe.

Exactly.

And as you noted, the crowd adores his admission.

There is simply no hope for this country. We have passed over the tipping point, and there is nothing left to grab onto to try and save ourselves...

Out of everything related to this issue, I'm most surprised by the number of Craig Kilborn fanboys in this thread.

You are one of the few people on the planet who insists that Stewart is not funny. His enormous ratings speaks for itself.

What has Kilborn done since leaving TDS? I know he was on late night for a time but completely lost track of him years ago. So it seems to me that it was the writing that made the show and Kilborn was just a face that was good at reading the teleprompter. Much like our POTUS.

His viewers consider the COMEDY CHANNEL a "most trusted news source", so I don't much care what they like.
