It appears that the IRS may be starting its own armed militia.
Recent IRS recruitment videos have been making the rounds on social media.
The content of those videos is a little bit disturbing.
They show potential IRS agents armed with guns as they make arrests.
Thomas Massie shared videos and images on Twitter.
One video shows students posing as “Special IRS agents” and arresting a man for tax evasion.
“We’re the IRS. You’re under arrest. You’re going to jail buddy.” says one of the students pretending to be an agent in the video.
This is a mockery to all Americans.
It looks like larpers role-playing…

The IRS deleted a job posting from their website just last week, which required their agents to carry guns and use “deadly force.”
Seems like interesting timing…
Yahoo News reported on the deleted job post:
The IRS deleted a job posting Wednesday seeking a Special Agent “willing to use deadly force” for its law enforcement division, Criminal Investigation (CI). The deletion came amid renewed scrutiny of the IRS in response to a Democrat-backed spending bill that would double the size of the agency.
“As a Special Agent you will combine your accounting skills with law enforcement skills to investigate financial crimes,” the job advertisement read.
“No matter what the source, all income earned, both legal and illegal, has the potential of becoming involved in crimes which fall within the investigative jurisdiction of the IRS Criminal Investigation. Because of the expertise required to conduct these complex financial investigations, IRS Special Agents are considered the premier financial investigators for the Federal government,” the job posting continued.
The IRS is hiring new special agents!
Requirements include working min “50 hours per week, which may include irregular hours, and be on-call 24/7, including holidays and weekends” and “Carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force, if necessary.”https://t.co/uvwbrAkIit pic.twitter.com/z0aVX6uoMr

If the IRS had nothing to hide, why would they delete the job posting from their website that required their agents to carry guns and use deadly force?

Social media users are rightfully disturbed by this:
Why THE FUCK does the IRS have guns? pic.twitter.com/3aTYZS7ehz

The IRS has never pointed a gun at a billionaire or his employees, so why does the IRS need 87,000 new agents, AR-15’s, and 5 million rounds of ammunition?
They’re not gunning for billionaires or their bank accounts.

If progressives won't trust teachers to have guns to protect our kids, why do they trust IRS accountants to have them?

Based on the lack of gun safety in these photos it appears the IRS is training agents to shoot each other https://t.co/banxgTiui1
