Not Satire: IRS Issues Guidance That Thieves and Looters Must Report Stolen Property as Income on Tax Return
As we spent the better part of 2021 in America watching our Republic crumble through unconstitutional mandates on every level of government, police have been too busy arresting the unvaccinated and the unmasked to deal with actual crimes. This is why we’ve seen a massive increase in homicides, thefts, and lootings around the nation.
Of these thefts and lootings, California has been among the worst as police resources — those who haven’t been fired due to vaccination status — have been unable to keep up with the mobs ransacking stores into closure.
As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work. Much of our work, particularly as it revolves around a biblical worldview on social and cultural issues, isn’t even allowed to be shared on social media anymore.

Don’t worry, though, the federal government has it under control. The IRS will now require looters to report the stolen property as income on their tax returns. This is serious; it is not satire. The following is directly from the IRS website:
Stolen property. If you steal property, you must report its fair market value in your income in the year you steal it unless you return it to its rightful owner in the same year.
Sure, that should solve the problem. Because, you know, criminals who steal property are also honest and will definitely do this without giving it a second thought.
It should really irk the public how dumb the world has become. Seriously, only a leftist would come up with something so asinine. Let’s not worry about arresting them while they’re looting the stores. Let’s not worry about investigating video evidence, hunting these people down, and bringing them to justice in order to uphold a peaceful and civilized society. No, let’s just require them to report their stolen goods as income.
