Students at the University of Colorado – Boulder (UCB) signed an enormous thank you card to the Internal Revenue Service for its apparent harassment of conservative groups during the lead-up to President Obama’s reelection.

In the viral video, posted on YouTube Tuesday, conservative pundit Caleb Bonham asked students to sign the large card that read “Thank you IRS! Tea Party Deserves it!”

“I’m asking people if they want to sign my board thanking the IRS for targeting conservative tea party and religious organizations,” Bonham explained in the video.

Several students enthusiastically added signatures and personal messages.

“Yes, totally,” responded one student. “I read about that. I thought it was pretty funny that the IRS was doing the right thing but the wrong thing at the same time.”

“I love discrimination,” chimed in another student.

Bonham told Campus Reform on Wednesday he was “very surprised” he was able to attain so many signatures on the card.

“I was kind of hoping people would look at my card and laugh, but not endorse it,” he said. “That was not the case.”

Bonham added that he filmed the video “to demonstrate how desperately conservative, limited government values are needed, especially among our youth.”

At the time of publication, the video had 14,466 views.
