23. There is no answer to your challenge because the "singled out" meme is without evidence

We would have to know how all the groups were treated to glean evidence of anyone being "singled out" as you correctly argued.

I have noticed these things as well and asked similar questions about information regarding the bulk of those flagged, yet I've only heard replies speaking of how a minority that were "outraged" were handled. Of course we need to know the same specifics regarding the majority of those targeted, yet they will not even talk about the majority, only baggers (who lets face it play the victim from dusk to dawn as a matter of habit).

Another Duer noticed oddly that it appeared that of the minority (The Tea Party Patriots) that were taking to their fainting couches over being singled out, 82% turned out to have substantial political components that required further review, so the targeting was functionally effective even if they were identified through "inappropriate" criteria (i.e., based on their name). Unfortunately what was not effective as you have pointed out, was the enforcement of the rules as not a single one of that 82% lost their tax exempt status. Some liberal groups that they refused to discuss details about did lose their exempt status, so who was singled out and who was held above the rules in the end?

I Can't say as they only talk about the teflon baggers and disclose no such information regarding the majority on the list.
