IRS: Tax-exempt organizations aren't allowed to protest or picket??

Examples of the abuse of power by IRS agents seeking to hamstring conservative organizations seeking tax-exempt status keep leaking past the media's defense shield.

In one of the newest examples the service demanded that as a condition of receiving that status, one pro-life group had to promise that it would not  "picket/protest or organize groups to picket or protest outside of Planned Parenthood."

'Cuz ya see,citizen, tax-exempt groups aren't permitted to do any protesting.  For example, you never see "Organizing for America" protesting or pushing a favorite Democrat policy, right?

The agent who made that demand went on to detail how that assurance to happen:   She demanded that every member of the board sign a letter swearing under penalty of perjury that they would not picket or protest Planned Parenthood.

Do you think the IRS made the same demand of Organizing for America?  Or of any other Democrat-supporting group?

Oh, but believe us, citizen, none of the IRS's grilling was politically motivated.

Not. A.  Bit.
