Federal agents "carrying weapons and attired in SWAT gear" used "violent and hostile means" to force employees out of two Gibson factories, according to Henry Juszkiewicz, CEO of Gibson Guitars.
Using the wrong kind of wood to build guitars.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) raided the guitar maker two years ago for allegedly using wood that violated an obscure, 100-year old law in...Madagascar! Since when does the DOJ go to such lengths to enforce Madagascar law? Gibson was raided. Its competitors (who also used the wood) were not.
One company supported Republican candidates and the others supported Democratic candidates.
Take a wild guess which one got the "special attention."
Apparently, the IRS isn't the only federal agency targeting conservatives. It's beginning to look like the tin-foil hat crowd is right. This administration has a bull's-eye on its political enemies.
Before you roll your eyes, consider the admittedly-inappropriate targeting of:
- Tea Party groups
- pro-life and religious groups
- pro-Israel groups
- Fox News reporter James Rosen (and his parents)
(notice the complete absence of any progressives?)
That our government agencies are employing gestapo-style tactics ought to be of concern to every American, conservative or not. Governing by intimidation, fear and strong-arming defenseless people is clearly an abuse of power we cannot accept.
A wise man once said: "Want of foresight, unwillingness to act when action would be simple and effective, lack of clear thinking, confusion of counsel until the emergency come, until self-preservation strikes its jarring gong--these are the features which constitute the endless repetition of history." --Winston Churchill
"For we know Him who said, "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," and again, "The Lord will judge His people." It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God." -- Hebrews 10:30,31
