The power to tax is the power to destroy. Beta O’Rourke just invoked that taxation power to threaten every church, college, or charity – any institution – which does not toe what should be now be known as the KGBT Line.
“K” is close enough to “L” for government work.
That’s the work which should be governed by the First Amendment:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”
But Progressivism is a religion. It’s being established in order to suppress freedom of conscience and freedom of speech. The press is complicit.
The grievances of tiny, vocal minorities – fashionably high in the victimhood competence hierarchy – are being mooted as Federal government policy.
So. A nine year old child was abused in order to abuse the Constitution.
The Progressive audience applauded.
