We're talking disenfranchisement

Tyler, TX (KETK) — The liberal media loves to use the word “disenfranchised.”
They love to drag in out during redistricting battles of other time they seem or deem a group of people are getting a raw deal.
Here is one dictionary definition of the word “disenfranchised” – “To deprive (a business concern, etc.) of some privilege or right.”
How about another?
.”To deprive (a person) of the right to vote or other rights of citizenship.”
Like participating in the political process.
This week, we learned that is exactly what this administration and their strong arm, the IRS, has been doing to conservatives.
You usually hear the term applied to those who support the left.
But, so far during the IRS mess, I have not heard this term uttered by the always worried and insulted press.
So far, we have learned about more that 500 conservative groups applying for a tax exempt status were either given impossible homework assignments to apply or were just told no.
Some of the cases have not been resolved, which also means no.
It was also done during a primary election year.
All these folks trying to get involved in the electoral process were told no.
Where is their justice?
The president said yesterday this was an easy fix.
No, it's not.
His political enemies were shut out of the process by him.
This is serious, very serious.
And having a staged firing of a bureaucratic wonk, who was on his way out of the IRS, does not close the book on this sorry chapter of American history.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
