    at the time these things happened.  Anything that had 'Patriot', 'Tea Party', 9/12, and several other telltale markers was virtually certain to be an organization dedicated to the political ouster of the President.  It wasn't subtle, it wasn't that the country suddenly knew an urge to educate and minister to the citizenry.  It was oligarch-fueled astro-turf masquerading as grass roots to take as many Democrats off the field as possible.

    Small wonder that these groups were identified as deserving of more than a quick pass before we started handing out the 'tax-exempt' stickers.

    The proof is in the results.  Not one organization was stopped from receiving the designation.  If this really was 'ideological filtering', why did the ideologs get approved?  Nothing to see here other than Americans trying to do their jobs.

    I happen to be a male.  It's an accident of birth, and it's not my fault, but I decided to go with it.  When I apply for free contraceptives, it's not targeting or ideological filtering when they ask my sex, it's just common sense given the facts that apply.

      Approximately 30 of the groups withdrew their applications, and so did not receive a determination.
