Good video, Prof., but the wrong one.
I get the impression that Mr. Levin is not placated by the nonsense “apology” from the IRS…
I also think we need popcorn for the next act.
The key point is what is going to be done about the IRS thuggery? Already, it has been announced that there will be no punishment. That carries the clear implication that the acts have the approval of the chain of command. And if something has the factual approval of the chain of command; it will be repeated by subordinates regardless of PR statements. In fact, the refusal to name names raises the possibility that those employees were rewarded/promoted for their actions.
Congressman Issa has said that there will be an investigation. But the power does not reside solely with him. Speaker Boehner has worked in the past to impede the Fast and Furious investigation and the Benghazi investigation because he did not want to put pressure on the White House. Until solid evidence of a real investigation comes about, it has to be assumed that this will be stifled by the Institutional Republican leadership as well.
One key point. Now that it is revealed, if there is no effective punishment, IRS misconduct becomes the new accepted norm. And it reinforces the ongoing acceptance of lawbreaking by the administration as the way business is done. Which changes both the relationship between the State and citizen/subjects and the legitimacy of the government.
You are not being paranoid, they are out to get us…
Reparations for discrimination are as appropriate here as with the USDA. How about Pigford III, where every white male Tea Party type gets $50K?
Hey! How about us Chinese TEA Party members? I promise that I am an enemy of the regime. And if the lawsuit is via 42 USC 1983, it covers both individual and institutional damages. I want to see Buraq’s Bureaucrats’ starving in the streets with their families.

May have penned this in prior comments BUT, this entire Barry administration must be frog marched out of D.C.
THEN: The above action is to be considered as A last warning IRS, you are next in the frog march thingy!
I don’t think my opinion of someone has ever changed nearly as much as have my feelings about Mark Levin.
He’s gone from “hysterical, obnoxious blowhard” in my mind to “absolute Mensch.”
What can I say? He hasn’t changed … but he’s grown on me.
If you come to see that a screeching schtick is sincerely heartfelt, it not only becomes palatable, but, like kimchee, you actually start to desire the sour spice. ***
*** This does not apply to the sincerely heartfelt schtick of MSNBC talking heads. Lunacy renders it nothing more than the equivalent of the post-kimchee bad breath.
I think this is the rare occasion that brings both liberals and conservatives together…
..in agreement that somebody in the IRS needs to be fired!
-conservatives, for the IRS using the full force of the federal government to target political opponents.
-liberals, for admitting it!
We have a Chicago politician as president. Why is this a surprise? This is how politics works in Chicago. It’s unlikely to be the end of the story.
Mark Levin is the de facto LEADER of conservatism in America – nobody else comes close.
