Filing Taxes Could Be Free and Simple. But H&R Block and… — ProPublica
Reminder that this conspiracy theory sounding shit is 100% legit

Journalists Spread Conspiracy Theory That DHS Document Contains Secret Nazi Code
This is the Jack Chick of liberalism

I mean DHS and ICE are evil but you don’t have to become literally Alex Jones to oppose them 🙄
