The IRS encourages tin-foil-behatted conspiracy theorists by targeting the Tea Party and other conservative groups. (6:47)

SITE COULD USE A SIDE BOB

SECTION.

(LAUGHTER)

BUT HERE'S THE THING: WHY BOTHER

FIGHTING, O'REILLY?

IT DOESN'T MATTER.

IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE TO ARGUE

WITH HIM BECAUSE FACTS DON'T

MATTER TO THAT SIDE IN THEIR

PARANOID FEVERED DREAM IT IS

STATE DEPARTMENT AND THE C.I.A.

CHANGING TALKING POINTS IS

IRREFUTABLE EVIDENCE OBAMA LEFT

PEOPLE TO DIE SO HE COULD SWING

OHIO.

DESPITE THERE BEING NO SHRED OF

EVIDENCE TO VALIDATE THEIR

FULL-BLOWN RIGHT WING

PERSECUTION VICTIMIZATION

COMPLEX.

>> THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE

ADMITTED TODAY THAT SOME OF ITS

EMPLOYEES TARGETED CONSERVATIVE

POLITICAL GROUPS FOR EXTRA

SCRUTINY IN VIOLATION OF ITS OWN

POLICY AND DESPITE ITS EARLIER

DENIALS.

>> Jon: MOTHER (BLEEP)!

(LAUGHTER)

SON OF A BITCH!

NO!

MOTHER (BLEEP)!

(LAUGHTER)

WHAT?

WHAT DID YOU DO?

(LAUGHTER)

>> IN THE SPRING OF 2010, JUST

AS THE TEA PARTY MOVEMENT WAS

GAINING STEAM, A GROUP OF I.R.S.

SPECIALISTS WERE TOLD TO FOCUS

ON ORGANIZATIONS WITH "POLITICAL

SOUNDING NAMES SEEKING

TAX-EXEMPT STATUS."

>> Jon: POLITICAL SOUNDING

NAMES!

THAT COULD BE ANYBODY!

POLITICAL SOUNDING NAMES.

THAT'S NOT RIGHT WING.

IT COULD BE HIPPIES FOR CHANGE

OR OCCUPY RALPH NADER.

(LAUGHTER)

I MEAN, NOT NECESSARILY JUST

RIGHT WING.

>> GROUPS WITH NAMES LIKE "WE

THE PEOPLE" OR "TAKE BACK THE

COUNTRY."

>> Jon: OKAY, THAT'S RIGHT

WING.

>> SPECIALISTS WERE TOLD TO BE

ON THE LOOKOUT FOR TEA PARTY

APPLICATIONS.

ALONG WITH GROUPS WHOSE MISSION

WAS TO EDUCATE ABOUT THE

CONSTITUTION.

>> Jon: OH, OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

IN THEIR DEFENSE, THERE IS A

GOOD REASON WHY PEOPLE USING THE

I.R.S. TO CRACK DOWN ON

POLITICAL ENEMIES WOULD NOT WANT

AMERICANS EDUCATED ABOUT THE

CONSTITUTION.

(LAUGHTER)

AND WHILE THE TAX-EXEMPT STATUS

THAT ALL POLITICAL GROUPS GET IS

KIND OF BULL (BLEEP), IT'S BULL

(BLEEP) THAT SHOULD AT LEAST BE

GRANTED FAIRLY AND EQUITABLY,

SPREAD AROUND EVENLY, IF YOU

WILL.

SO UNLIKE MUCH OF THE BENGHAZI

INQUIRY, THIS SEEMS LIKE A

GENUINE SCANDAL.

SO EXPLANATION, PLEASE, LET'S

SAY FROM THE INDIVIDUAL WHO

OVERSEES TAX-EXEMPT

ORGANIZATIONS FOR THE I.R.S.

>> THEY USED NAMES LIKE "TEA

PARTY" OR "PATRIOTS," AND THEY

SELECTED CASES SIMPLY BECAUSE

THE APPLICATION HAD THOSE NAMES

IN THE TITLE.

THAT WAS WRONG.

THE I.R.S. WOULD LIKE TO

APOLOGIZE FOR THAT.

>> Jon: OH, OKAY, THANK YOU.

I APPRECIATE -- WAIT A MINUTE!

(LAUGHTER)

I DIDN'T REALIZE APOLOGIES WERE

SUFFICIENT IN I.R.S.-RELATED

ISSUES.

(LAUGHTER)

HOLD ON ONE MINUTE.

I -- I BET --

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

I BET IF I'M NOT MISTAKE THAN

RIGHT NOW WESLEY SNIPES FEELS

LIKE A REAL AS (BLEEP).

(LAUGHTER)

WAIT, ALL I HAD TO SAY WAS "I'M

SORRY"?

INSTEAD OF "ALWAYS BET ON

BLACK"?

AND SINCE WE'RE TALKING ABOUT

THIS.

YOU KNOW HOW ON MY TAXES I PUT

DOWN I HAVE THAT A FARM?

ACTUALLY, I HAD A SALAD.

(LAUGHTER)

SO -- SORRY.

(LAUGHTER)

BUT DON'T WORRY, IT GETS

FUNNIER.

>> I SAID THAT ABOUT A QUARTER

OF THE CASES THAT WERE SELECTED

FOR FULL DEVELOPMENT HAD EITHER

"TEA PARTY" OR "PATRIOT" IN

THEIR NAME.

>> OKAY, SORRY, THANK YOU FOR

THE CLARIFICATION BUT THAT WOULD

BE A QUARTER OF THE 300, THEN.

SO WE'RE TALKING 75 OR SO?

>> THAT'S CORRECT.

IS THAT A QUARTER?

>> YES.

>> THANK YOU, I'M NOT GOOD AT

MATH.

(LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE)

>> Jon: THAT'S A GOOD ONE,

LADY WHO WORKS AT THE PLACE THAT

CALCULATE'S PEOPLE'S TAXES.

WELL, CONGRATULATIONS, PRESIDENT

BARACK OBAMA.

CONSPIRACY THEORISTS WHO

GENERALLY CAN SURVIVE?

AN AEROBIC ENVIRONMENTS HAVE

JUST HAD AN ALGAE BLOOM DROPPED

ON THEIR (BLEEP)ING HEADS.

THUS REMOVING THE LAST ARROW IN

YOUR PRO-GOVERNANCE QUIVER.

SKEPTICISM ABOUT YOUR OPPONENTS,

GUN CONTROL, WHY CAN'T WE HAVE

BACKGROUND CHECKS?

>> I BELIEVE IT WOULD PUT US

INEXORABLY ON THE PATH TO A

NATIONAL GUN REGISTRY.

>> Jon: OH, RIGHT, A NATIONAL

GUN REGISTRY, THE GOVERNMENT IS

GOING TO OVERREACH AND THERE'S

GOING TO BE A REGISTRY AND THE

GOVERNMENT'S EVEN CAPABLE OF

THAT KIND OF OVERREACH AND

THEY'RE GOING TO TAKE YOUR GUNS

AWAY FROM YOU.

>> THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE

ADMITTED TODAY THAT SOME OF ITS

EMPLOYEES TARGETED CONSERVATIVE

POLITICAL GROUPS.

>> Jon: MOTHER (BLEEP)S!

(LAUGHTER)

THIS THIS HAS IN ONE SEISMIC

MOMENT SHIFTED THE BURDEN OF

PROOF FROM THE TINFOIL BEHATTED

TO THE GOVERNMENT.

THE V.A. CLAIMS BACKLOG AND THE

BOUNCED CHECK FORECLOSURE

CLUSTER (BLEEP) HAD ALREADY

GIVEN GOVERNMENT COMPETENCE

FETISHISTS FITS.

(LAUGHTER)

GOVERNMENT COMPETENCE FETISHIST

FITS.

(LAUGHTER)

AND NOW THIS.

IN A FEW SHORT WEEKS, YOU'VE

MANAGED TO SHOW THAT WHEN THE

GOVERNMENT WANTS TO DO GOOD

THINGS, YOUR MANAGERIAL

COMPETENCE FALLS SOMEWHERE

BETWEEN DAVID BRENT AND A CAT

CHASING A LASER POINTER.

(LAUGHTER)

BUT WHEN GOVERNMENT WANTS TO

FLEX ITS MORE MALEVOLENT MUSCLES

YOU'RE (BLEEP)ING IRON MAN!

YOU KNOW WHAT?

I'M SORRY.

I'M SORRY.

I'M OVERREACTING.

I STILL BELIEVE-- I REALLY DO--

THAT GOOD GOVERNMENT HAS THE

POWER TO IMPROVE PEOPLE'S LIVES

AND THAT THE PEOPLE HAVE THE

POWER TO RESTRAIN ITS EXCESSES.

I FORGET THAT SOMETIMES AND I'M

-- I'M SORRY.

IT'S GOING TO BE OKAY AND -- OUR

FORM OF GOVERNMENT IS BIGGER

THAN JUST THESE ISSUES.

THIS STORM WILL PASS.

IT'S JUST -- REALLY?

RIGHT NOW?

>> ALL RIGHT, WE'RE JUST GETTING

INTO THIS INTO THE SITUATION

ROOM CALLING IT A "MASSIVE AND

UNPRECEDENTED INTRUSION" THE

ASSOCIATED PERES NOW SAYING THE

JUSTICE DEPARTMENT SECRETLY

OBTAINED TWO MONTHS OF PHONE

RECORDS OF ITS REPORTERS AND

EDITORS.

>> Jon: MOTHER (BLEEP).

(LAUGHTER)

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
