Tea Party leader gives epic testimony before Congress

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

How is Becky Gerritson not on the front of every paper in America? If this was any other movement, the testimony this week given by a local Tea Party leader who was targeted by the IRS would be everywhere. She gave such a solid, emotional & brave remarks that spoke truth to power.

“I’m not here as a serf or a vassal,” Gerritson said tearing up. “I’m not begging my lords for mercy. I’m a born-free American woman, wife, mother, and citizen. And I’m telling my government that you’ve forgotten your place.”

WATCH:

“If this was any other cause, that woman would be on the front page of every paper, lead every newscast, and she would be the icon of this movement,” Glenn said.

  • JohnAbramson

    Oh boo frickin’ hoo. They approved her tax exempt status and she didn’t like the way they did it. That certainly warranted her crocodile tears. C’mon that was BS testimony. She was persecuted because of the crackpot image the Tea Party has and it’s radical stance against taxes. The majority of the groups, 2/3rds were approved for tax exempt status, and you still whine about it. If it was a liberal group, (and there were liberal groups targeted as well,), you would sure want them checked thoroughly. I don’t understand the fake crying and emotion though.She got what she wanted and still felt a need to complain. Aren’t you guys supposed to be against free stuff from the govt? While all those other groups continue to pay their taxes, she gets off. You are sending a bad signal to America, with this one.

    Thank goodness it was possible “still” that this lady was able to be heard. Surely many members of the Congress did not want this to be seen and they hope she will fade from our memories. Not all of the “networks” wanted to cary this and many didn’t, I’m sure.  The shame of our GOVERNMENT is great!  Now, what will our elected representatives do, if any thing?

  • http://www.facebook.com/DriverDave79 Dave Roberts

    Mr Abramson, I would challenge you to name even ONE liberal group who received similar scrutiny (i.e., over-bearing and invasive questionnaires that were in their very content, ILLEGAL), which I would also find abhorent.  The fact is that our government has, as Ms Gerritson so eloquently pointed out, lost its way.  While there are many government workers who faithfully execute their assigned duties, it is evident that there is a growing cadre of workers who feel entitled and empowered to make the lives of ordinary citizens into a living hell … just because they happen to not agree with their own political beliefs.  Tea Party and Patriot groups are asking NOTHING in the way of funding from the government; only the right to exist in a tax exempt status.  The same status enjoyed by the ACLU, Media Matters, and a host of other organizations.  If you don’t feel we deserve that status, then I hope you would agree that the entire 501(c) statute should be reviewed/repealed.

    Honestly, there are so many holes in your comment that it doesn’t even warrant a response. So this isn’t as much a response to the indvidual above (who goes by John) as much as it is a rebuttal to the statist beliefs that give rise to this ignorance.

    Free stuff from the gov’t? That’s the problem with leftist socialist zealotry. Progressive socialists will say whatever comes to mind so long as it pushes your backwards agenda forward.
     
    I submit that the new motto for all leftists should be “Truth and reality be damned”. Although it is a bit ironic, given the left’s so-called proclivity for science and reason; it is quite a fitting slogan for the left indeed.And since when did taxation WITH representation become radical? Comments such as the one’s made by the misguided individual above are nothing more than a reflection of what happens when we allow folks to get away with saying up is down and down is up.

    No! Up is up, down is down and you are flatout wrong. What you lower rung lefties don’t realize is that IF the elite leftwing establishment gets their way…you’ll learn that all of the things you thought they cared about were nothing more than a ploy to gain power – your leaders could care less about the things you hold dear and the moment you cease to be useful to them they could care less about you.Don’t believe me ask Jeremiah Wright or anyone else whose ever been thrown under the bus after out lasting their usefulness…Get your mind right lefties!

    “Free stuff from the government”???  That’s bribery to keep quiet about their criminal and unconstitutional activities!  Obama’s agenda is to get everyone to depend on government for everything, which is pretty much how the Soviets lived.  And guess what happened in the end.  The Soviet Union collapsed!  Socialism (which is just a step short of communism) has never worked and history is evidence of that.  Government is running rampant like a wildfire; if we don’t control it, soon it will be too big for us to deal with.

    Yes Benin… well said. I watched the entire meeting and believe me, the hair on my neck is still standing. I don’t care what party you are part of, THIS IS SCARY for ALL OF US. If ONE man and his crew can do this to entire groups of people, THIS puts us all back about two hundred years and back into serfdom. FREEDOM isn’t for any group… it is for all, and the 1st amendment isn’t negotiable for anyone…..IT IS A RIGHT. Thomas Jefferson purposely put this first.! If this president can do this to his competition, just imagine what a true and scary zealot could do with that power.!!!!! The IRS needs to be NEUTERED, pure and simple. It is a service agency, not a separate army for a commander to use. Time to take notice and action from all who can.

    You know it’s funny…I was thinking something very similar re: serfdom. B/c here’s the thing…F.A. Hayek got it right…History tells us that the majority of leftist movements lead to serfdom or outright slavery. That being said you’re spot on. 

    However, one thing we’ve got to remember is that its not just one man doing all of this (although we’ve certainly seen an acceleration on his watch). Leftism is a doctrine that emanates not just from the Oval Office but also from:- Public Schools
    - Unions
    - Pop Culture
    - Political Correctness
    - The Mainstream Media
    - And etc.

    I said all that to say that although the president must be held accountable, our main focus should be on fighting leftism. If we don’t, my fear is that we could soon end up with politicians that make Barry look like Kindercare.

    John, “She was persecuted because of the crackpot image the Tea Party has and it’s radical stance against taxes. ”

    And where exactly did you get the idea the Tea Party is “crackpot?”

    Possibly from a media that has absconded their duty to keep the people informed?
    A meidia so corrupt and one sided that 87% support the murder of babies in the womb and 94% have voted democrat in ever election for the last 40 plus years?

    You don’t think there might be some of that attitude bleeding over into their reporting?

    IF they are truly guilty of treason, which I too believe they are, then they should ALL suffer the penalty for committing treason which is death. Yes, I actually said they should die “if found guilty for the act of treason”. That has always been the penalty for treason. However, we are a long way from anyone in this government, especially Republicans, actually having the courage to bring ANY of them up on charges. So this is really all moot.

  • JIM

    Excellent reply, especially the leftist part. I really have no problem with the left as long as it isn’t in the bleachers out past “Left Field” since different views are what makes this country great.  The history of Progressivism as it has become over the years is far too close to the WWII brand of ideals that had to be stopped the hard way. It isn’t so much the one man effect that worries me, as the precedence of the laws and mandates his admisnistration is installing. Listening to all the references of how Bush did the same “Targeting” to a few organizations in his terms gave me the BIG epiphany of “LEGACY”…. Getting even for what one idiot does, is like shooting yourself in the foot.
         What one person does, creates reactions, and if the law and precendence is already accepted here, and the next guy is more of a zealot, installs more plays to get even for the last, then we finally get to the real idiot who wants to get even for what he sees as years of oppression and we have a whole new Holocaust to play with. The secret is to NOT GET EVEN,  the secret is to STOP making it possible for anyone in government to have this kind of latitude to do as he wants with NO consequences.
        Benghazzi was worse than the IRS thing for me, mainly because I’m a Vet and have a deep reverence for my Brothers in arms. The only thing is that has been allowed to vanish by cover-ups and vanishing people with accountability for it all. The IRS travesty is one that will stay on the front burner for awhile until somebody gets prosecuted, then the dam will rupture. That’s what happened to Nixon, and most likely the same will have to happen here……. hence the NEED for Holder to stay in the interference position. I have never in my life seen anyone who falls on his sword with more eloquence.
        Oby OWES that guy a LOT, with a large LOT on that end. Watch for him to interfere here as well as he did with the other scandals. Just like executive privilege was given to protect him on Fast and Furious. The whole fiasco is credited to one principle…. this government is way too strong and completely out of control. Time to start over COMPLETELY as it once was with the constitution as it was intended, and yet keep the progress we have made in human rights and relations and then remember that when it is all done, we all heve one common factor, and that is being FREE AMERICANS.
        PS: good to see someone like you in here that cares.

Germany, Russia, Italy, and finally the European block all understand what power-hungry people can do with the right amount of power at their fingertips.!

    She brought me to tears. I sit here and wonder why the hell someone in Congress has not started impeachment proceedings. How much more are we supposed to stomach. How much? Are we to stand idly by and watch the corrosion of our country? Won’t our elected officials hear us? Do they hear us? I guess not. My father said he is glad he will be dead before we completely self destruct. He did not fight in Korea for this. I did not defend our country in the Navy for this. I am so disgusted and terribly exhausted from worry of what is happening.

    How long did the NAACP have to wait for its 501-c-4 status? I don’t object to Tea Party groups being rejected for 501-c-4 status. The problem is the IRS has not made a decision on that, for 2, some cases 3 years. They’re stuck in limbo and being asked extremely probing questions this whole time. They face legal and financial jeopardy, because they don’t know whether they’re running afoul of the law or not. The IRS has not told them. That’s what’s unacceptable.

    Secondly, a group opposing gay marriage allegedly had its donor list leaked to an opposition group, and the Huffington Post, by the IRS. They are now suing, and if their charge sticks, whoever did this inside the government faces a felony charge. Something stinks about all this, and it’s not, “Boo-hoo, I’m being scrutinized.” The IRS is not doing its job, and possibly acting criminally. This is what should cause us concern.

    Maybe just maybe putting “Abolish the IRS” on your application for Tax exempt status as part of your platform was not the brightest thing to do ?

    Liberal groups did not stand in front of a microphone and shout “Abolish the IRS”

    It amazes me when they take poll, they do it in a place like New York. Polls that tells the government that people really don’t care what they are doing. Well in a liberal city I can see that. But if those congressman she sat before only knew that she didn’t only represent Wetumpka, and Alabama, and to what resolve we have to FORCE THE GOVERNMENT IN ITS PLACE, the government would be the one very afraid. At some point being nice and petitions stop and it has to go to the next level. I am so proud how eloquent and direct she spoke for us. If it had been me I’m not sure I could have reframed from using explicit adjectives when that Dem starting blaming it on her for getting harassed . Whether they know it or not, they have been warned!!!
