Lerner Email Exchange Mocked Talk Radio Hosts, Callers

From the UK’s Daily Mail:

Emails reveal IRS official Lois Lerner called conservatives ‘crazies’ and ‘a**holes’ as

By David Martosko | 30 July 2014

Former senior IRS official Lois Lerner had deeply held political biases while she was in a position of authority, according to Republican lawmakers who unveiled emails on Wednesday showing her referring to conservatives as ‘crazies’ and ‘a**holes.’

Michigan Rep. Dave Camp, who chairs the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, wrote to Attorney General Eric Holder to demand what he called ‘a serious investigation’ – something he said has been lacking… He told the attorney general on Wednesday that the newly disclosed email correspondence ‘shows Ms. Lerner’s mistreatment of conservative groups was driven by her personal hostility toward conservatives.’

Clearly, Mr. Camp is one of the crazy assholes Ms. Lerner was talking about.

The November 9, 2012 email exchange with an unnamed colleague – the person’s name was redacted in the copy Camp’s staff released publicly – took place while Lerner was in the United Kingdom.

‘Overheard some ladies talking about American[s] today,’ Lerner wrote. ‘According to them we’ve bankrupted ourselves and a[re] through. We’ll never be able to pay off our debt and are going down the tubes.’ …

The conversation turned ugly when Lerner’s writing companion let loose first on conservatives.

‘Well, you should hear the whacko wing of the GOP,’ the person replied. ‘The US is through; too many foreigners sucking the teat; time to hunker down, buy ammo and food, and prepare for the end.’

‘The right wing radio shows are scary to listen to.’ ‘Great,’ Lerner wrote back. ‘Maybe we are through if there are that many a**holes.’

‘And I’m talking about the hosts of the shows,’ came the reply. ‘The callers are rabid.’ …

It’s very peculiar that our media guardians haven’t pounced on this attack on rightwing talk radio. It’s right up their street.

In the final message of the exchange, Lerner wrote that ‘we don’t need to worry about [illegal] alien terrorists. It’s our own crazies that will take us down.’ …

To be fair, Ms. Lerner may have just been repeating what she has heard from Messrs. Obama and Biden and other top Democrats. All of whom have called conservatives terrorists in one way or the other.
