Funny how people who constantly complain that taxes aren’t high enough for “the rich” don’t seem to be able to pay their own.
From Jillian Kay Melchior at the National Review: “MSNBC’s Touré Has the Taxman on His Case.”
Touré Neblett, co-host of MSNBC’s The Cycle, owes more than $59,000 in taxes, according to public records reviewed by National Review.
In September 2013, New York issued a state tax warrant to Neblett and his wife, Rita Nakouzi, for $46,862.68. Six months later, the state issued an additional warrant to the couple for $12,849.87.
In January 2014, Neblett tweeted, “Regressive taxation & tax-avoidance & union crushing & the financial corruption of legislation has fueled inequality more than hard work.” In 2012, he also criticized Republican politicians, saying they were “all afraid to vote for a modest tax increase of people who can totally afford it.”
MSNBC’s hosts and guests regularly call for higher taxes on the rich, condemning wealthy individuals and corporations who don’t pay their taxes or make use of loopholes. But recent reports, as well as records reviewed by National Review, show that at least four high-profile MSNBC on-air personalities have tax liens or warrants filed against them.
Imagine if hosts at FoxNews—or the Koch brothers—were in trouble for not paying their “fair share” when it comes to taxes. Imagine they resisted and resisted until the Feds actually had to come after them with liens and seizures.
Why is it not 10,000 times more of a news story when hosts at MSNBC—and Warren Buffett, and John Kerry—and others who incessantly lecture the rest of us about the need to worship government, and to pay that “fair share,” are caught not paying what they owe to the Leviathan?
No one has to chase or lecture me to fill out my checks to Church—I do it gladly and freely, because it supports people and causes I believe in—so why does it seem to be so hard for Liberals to do the same in paying for their religion?
By the way, Al Sharpton gets invited to the White House all the time, even though he owes millions in taxes. The only place I’d be invited if I owed that much is a jail cell! (Which is where Sharpton belongs, after helping to destroy Ferguson, MO, over a bunch of lies. He got his donation and extortion checks… the city burned and he obviously doesn’t care.)
