The GOP Is Trying To Convince Americans The IRS Is Coming To Kill Them

Apparently not content to stop the paranoia-fueled violence working their way on the Capitol and FBI agents, Republicans would now like to convince people that the number-crunchers in the IRS are going to knock on the doors of the middle class and murder them. Huh. Taxes not paid. The $80 billion in additional funding will result from the Internal Revenue Service received as part of the Inflation Reduction Act. Yes, I wish we were kidding. No, incredibly, we are not.

Appears to have been created as a reaction to the raid Donald TrumpHouse, for which the GOP has no legitimate defense, Republican lawmakers and officials launched a strategy of intimidation last Monday. senator blonde frame deliberately asked: “After today’s raid on March Lago, what do you think the Left plans to use those 87,000 new IRS agents to do?” Indiana Representative Jim Banks warning His followers: “If the FBI could raid the home of a former US president, imagine what 87,000 more IRS agents would do to you.” Richard Grenell, Trump’s former Acting Director of National Intelligence tweeted: “FBI raids Trump’s home and Democrats vote to add 87,000 new IRS agents to go after Americans. Wake up, America.”

Naturally, the madness escalated from there. in an appearance on Thursday Fox and Friends, senator Chuck Grassley Asked, “Will they have a strike force ready to shoot down some small-businessman in Iowa with preloaded AK15s?” later that night, to fill Tucker Carlson, Brian Kilmeade told his audience:

Responding to utterly ridiculous claims, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee ron wyden said in Statement On Friday that “incendiary conspiracy theories Republicans are pushing about armed IRS agents who are increasingly dangerous and out of control. Highly placed Republicans, including the former chairman of the finance committee, are saying shockingly irresponsible. Social Given the crap we already see on the media, it is very easy to imagine that people use these conspiracy theories as justifications for violence against public servants and their families.”

Republicans, who insist they are the party of “law and order,” have intensified their attacks on law enforcement agents since Trump’s Palm Beach home was raided last week. Representative Paul Gossar called upon the Americans to “destroy the fbi.” Representative Marjorie Taylor Green claimed that the agents who were merely doing their job were only “engaging in the behavior observed in”communist country, not the United States, FBI agents have Allegedly Death threats against him saw an increase. On Thursday, an armed man attempted to break into a Cincinnati FBI office in what appears to be set off From attacks of authority on the Bureau. (The man, Ricky Schiffer, was later executed by police.)

So yes, it would be great if the GOP could avoid claiming that IRS agents are coming after people with AK15s.
