Band of Thugsâ¦ Obama Administration Exposes Conservative Groupâs Tax Information Posted by Jim Hoft on Monday, September 20, 2010, 9:01 PM Band of Thugsâ You can tell this guy was an instructor in Alinsky tactics. Barack Obama taught the socialist principles of radical Saul Alinsky before becoming president. The Obama Administration is now exposing the private tax information of top conservatives. Itâs like America is suddenly run by a bunch of Marxist pigs. The Weekly Standard reported: You confront the Obama regime- you pay. Glenn Reynolds adds: Hey, next Obama will be joking about tax audits for people who disrespect him.
