Liberals Learn From Terrorists

Byron York of the NRO has a must read article on People for the American Way (PFAW), a liberal group that has played a major role in the attacks on a number of President Bush's judicial nominations in recent years. It appears that this group has two "wings":

1. People for the American Way Foundation, which is a 501(c)(3) organization- which means that it is a fully tax-exempt charity forbidden from doing any lobbying, its contributions are tax deductible

2. PFAW itself, which is a 501(c)(4) organization- which while tax exempt, contributions to it are not tax deductible, because it engages in political lobbying

The numerous corporate donations the PFAW has received is from the 501(c) wing. The donors are not made aware of the true nature of this organization. They were made to believe that they were contributing to a foundation that is a "nonprofit, nonpartisan civil rights and constitutional liberties organization that promotes the values that sustain a free and diverse society".

Interestingly, this is how Hamas & Hezbollah operates too. They too have a social services wing, which collects the donations & does social work that promotes their ideology. This wing covertly supports the militant wing, by helping it recruit potential suicide bombers & creating favorable public opinion, as well as providing financial resources.

How does that saying go....Birds of a feather, flock together.

NB: I've reposted this, for some reason Blogger had failed to save my edits.
