Julian Bond, with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, said during a Tuesday interview on MSNBC that itâ€™s only right and just that the federal government and the IRS target tea party groups.
Tea party groups are, after all, â€œovertly racistâ€ and the â€œTaliban wing of American politics,â€ Mr. Bond said, Mediaite reported. The IRS ought to look over these groupsâ€™ shoulders, he said â€” at the same time condemning former President Bush, for what he alleged was that administrationâ€™s biased push for the IRS to investigate the NAACP.
The NAACP was investigated for improper political activities in 2004 after Mr. Bond made a speech that was highly critical of Mr. Bush, Mediaite reported. The group was later cleared of any wrongdoing. But Mr. Bond hasnâ€™t forgotten, and said his group was â€œunfairly targeted,â€ Mediaite said.
He denied holding a double standard with todayâ€™s IRS targeting of tea party groups and yesteryearâ€™s IRS investigation of the NAACP.
