Conservative Organization Urges IRS to Deprive Mark Zuckerberg of Tax Exemptions for 2020 Election Grants
Center to Renew America (CRA) filed a complaint with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) calling on the agency to reject personal tax exemptions for Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan. The group called attention to the couple’s funding of grant programs to assist municipalities in paying for carrying out the operational aspects of the 2020 general election.
In a second complaint, the Center to Renew America (CRA) called for the revocation of tax exemptions for three Zuckerberg-financed non-profits: the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL), the Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR), and the National Vote at Home Institute (NVAHI).
The complaints made allegations that the Zuckerbergs and the three organizations injected nearly $500 million into the 2020 election process with the aim of favoring then-presidential candidate Joe Biden and other Democrats during that election cycle.
CTCL distributed approximately $350 million in grants to local election departments. These election departments were tasked with conducting safe elections during the first year of the Wuhan virus pandemic.
“Mark Zuckerberg, through various non-profit organizations, contributed hundreds of millions of dollars towards efforts to rig the 2020 election,” the CRA declared in a tweet that it published on September 22. “Today, we filed TWO formal IRS complaints against Zuckerberg to call him on this ILLEGAL activity.”
According to Steven Kovac of The Epoch Times, CTCL dismissed similar claims from conservative organizations back in December 2021 by describing them as “disinformation.” It claimed in its final report on the 2020 Wuhan virus pandemic response grant that “partisan considerations played no role in the availability or awarding of funding.”
According to the report, roughly 2,500 election departments across 49 states obtained grants ranging from $5,000 to $19 million.
Conservatives have long accused the Zuckerbergs and the three organizations they help bankroll of funneling millions of dollars in grant money to areas that lean Democratic.
The conservative organizations assert that the majority of the NGO money was allocated towards voter registration drives and get-out-the-vote campaigns in the large cities of several critical battleground states, as opposed to the public health purposes that these organizations ostensibly promoted.
Per statistics published by CTCL, the city of Detroit — a safe Democratic jurisdiction — received over $3.5 million in grant money as the 2020 presidential election approached. By contrast, Republican jurisdictions only received $5,000 in grants or a big fat zero in grants.
Kovac observed the following:
Data from CTCL’s report demonstrates that in Michigan the top nine Democrat strongholds of Detroit, Flint, Pontiac, Lansing, Saginaw, Ann Arbor, Muskegon, Kalamazoo, and Benton Harbor received a combined $6.4 million in CTCL grant funding, representing 86 percent of the $7.4 million in grants distributed in Michigan.
In addition, the CTCL report outlined this and similar situations that took place in other states stating: “As their program needs changed during the pandemic, many larger urban areas, for example, required capital-intense investments to count a large volume of absentee and mail ballots in a short period of time.”
It’s clear that Big Tech and its magnates are hostile entities that must be brought to heel. These are oligarchical interest groups that labor to dispossess Americans and help the political class realize a globalist vision for America.
Politics is all about the friend/enemy distinction. Big Tech clearly falls in the latter part, and therefore, it must be clamped down if we want to continue having a coherent nation.
