What benefits there are to being a victim! The right-wing Hollywood group “Friends of Abe,” which recently bullied the IRS into giving it non-deserved tax-exempt status by playing the “victim” card while gaming the system (, is going to be partying it up at CBS Studio Center (the network’s lot in Studio City, CA) on Saturday April 19th at 7pm for an event with FNC “pundit” Greg Gutfeld. The “Friends of Abe” claim that there’s a blacklist against them in the entertainment industry, so how odd that they’re holding their shindig on the lot at CBS. Such a “blacklist!”

The event will take place at the studio commissary, “Carla’s Café,” Venue operator Jesus Hernandez confirmed this to me today (as “Friends of Abe” fancies itself a “secret” organization, the event is listed as the “Greg Gutfeld event”).

Wow, what an AMAZING blacklist! Partying it up on the lot at a major TV network. I’ll bet the Hollywood Ten wish they had been blacklisted in such style! Kudos to Friends of Abe founders Gary Sinise, Clint Eastwood, Patricia Heaton, and Kelsey Grammer for showing us what TRUE victimization really looks like.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
