Awesome.

Patriots across the land are protesting the IRS and its chilling abuse of power.

A local organizer, Matthew Hurtt, has more from the press release:

The Tea Party Patriots, the nation’s largest tea party organization, announced a series of protests across the country, which will take place at local IRS offices today at noon local time. The protests are in response to the IRS’s admission that the agency has engaged in systemic harassment and targeting of conservative organizations. For the past three years, the IRS has targeted Tea Party Patriots and other conservative tax-exempt organizations for additional scrutiny, and has singled these organizations out for audits and invasive reviews of their tax-exempt applications.

Haters gotta hate.

The old “rich men who like Chick-fil-A” line, huh? Taking a page right from WaPo’s book! Targeting of people by the IRS is totally fine, if they are icky old “teabaggers,” natch.

Matthew Hurtt and other Twitter users provide more pictures from on-the-scene in Washington, D.C.

Patriots are protesting at other local offices as well.

Bam! And we aren’t going to take it anymore.

Georgia’s Governor Deal joins the protest in Atlanta.

And the scandal-ridden Cincinnati office, where the targeting occurred:

This sign says it all:

        Bush never went out of his way to oppress the opposition. You libs always bring up Bush because you have no real defense for Obama. Because there is no excuse for what he is doing.

          And HE certainly didn’t go after Individual college student interns!

          Gordon, you may want to think about leaving this country if you don’t like it. I guess you are not aware that America was founded on principles of FREEDOM, LIBERTY, AND A GOD FEARING COUNTRY not GOVERNMENT FEARING COUNTRY. all conservatives are not rednecks either but you would not know since you are a sheeple.

            Dear Patricia, please re-read my comment. I tend to be a little… sarcastic.

      • lildebrarae

        Even ABC was able to show that BUSH did NOT use the IRS to target Political Enemies … let alone ‘individual college student Interns”.

          SQUIRREL!
          Even Nixon – while secretly wishing he could, wanting to do something against the left with the IRS – didn’t. Only FDR, Kennedy, Johnson, Clinton and now Zer0bama have done so.

          • Garth Haycock

            And notice from which political party are those Presidents.

          • lildebrarae

            Actually Nixon did. And it was proven not only by ABC, but by the Watergate hearings as well.

            The difference between Nixon, bush and Obama, is that only OBAMA went after individual College student interns, Jews, Christians, and Catholics.

            Sorry ……but I go by facts, no matter where they lead.

          • http://www.facebook.com/patricia.sullivan.3910 Patricia Sullivan

            Clete, none of our previous Presidents have gone nearly as far as this one, with anything! I never paid that much attention before because I didn’t need to, but I have been awake for years now. Government is full of power hungry people. We have had very few great Presidents but I think the one we have now is by far the worst in history.

          If there was this much outrage for OB when Bush was iPres, where was it THEN especially from the obviously media?? Suck it up libs, this Pres is a lazy welfare toting Socialist .He spinds his wheels doing nothing (except taking vacation an campaining) He’s here to bring the US to a new LOW and he’s succeding when he fools people like “bill”. When you don’t do your jobs you blame, blame and more blame or come up empty , I dunno, dunno, and more I dunno’s…If OB spent 10% of his time working instead of campaining even now. We wouldn’t have sequester, the fiscal cliff and other things “real leaders would have worked” at it to avoid these failing… Of course he blames others for not stepping up..And OB you were in Hawaii twice in a month, then golfing and campaiging for something you “want” You were AWOL…

        If you are unable to see the implication of the #IRS or ANY arm of the government targeting citizens, then you’re in deep trouble. This administration is targeting conservatives. Are you convinced that won’t have a ripple effect? Once its “OK” to go after one group, others will become the center of the bulls eye. The German people followed Hitler as the smoke rose from the chimneys….

        Which one?

        Bush Sr: Turning wrenches on aircraft at Howard AFB. When not helping with crowd control and evacuation of locals in Colon, Panama during ‘Just Cause’.

        Bush Jr: Keeping our allies in Australia and New Zealand and their ridiculous “Nuclear Free Zones” happy with multiple cargo runs from Andrews AFB. To Hickam to either Melbourne or Christ Church.

        Why?

        • lildebrarae

          The Bushes are history now.

          Obama is in the ‘here’ and ‘now’. And some the questions (in no particular order) we should ‘start’ to ask him (which he has refused to answer) are.

          1) Why did he allow a soldier to die of rabies, and then blame the soldier for his own death in spite of the fact the soldier reported the dog bite?

          2) Why did he and big sis put all returning vets on the DHS domestic terrorist watch list?

          3) Why did he cut our soldiers and vets military health care in half, yet give terrorists in Guatanamo a new soccer field?

          4) Why did he cut scholorship funding to our soldier’s children, yet at the same time give that same funding to illegal alien criminals?

          5) Why is he treating our marines as though they are his personal butlers?

          6) why did he and his regime work to suppress the military’s right to vote in Ohio (as well as other states)?

          7)Why did he try to court martial navy seals for doing their jobs?

          The list does go on. But as I said those are just some of the questions we should be asking now.

      It is THE LAW. Non-profit group status..PERIOD. However, it is SO BEYOND that at this point. The IRS in of itself, is in business to collect tax money and grant non-profit status to those who follow those laws.

      The IRS does not care who you are, but they do what they are told from higher ups.

      There is NO REASON for the IRS to target ANYONE, they do not make a profit nor take a loss. But lets go back in time just a bit and see who HAS targeted the conservative and Jewish groups…….and let’s see who is STUPID enough to continue to kiss the ass of the one who has NO PROBLEM targeting the press (some of the ORIGINAL ASS KISSERS) and who is in the news today for targeting their own White House ass kissing Staffers….are you sure you are safe Snooty? The AP thought they were too, the WH staffers thought so and even ol’ Jeremiah Wright came out 2 years ago and let it spill how he (ass smoocher) was stabbed in the back by the “chosen ONE”….you SURE you’re safe?
      How’s about if Bush did do this? Would you be leading the “Impeach Bush” Parade? But you accept this from Obama? Get a clue man, they are EVERYWHERE.

    Lets hope at the protests there is also a sign for Red Cross re: Oklahoma. Text REDCROSS to 90999 to send money to red cross. If and when any speeches are given even with “mic check” tell of text REDCROSS to 90999. No doubt the left will attack for having a tax protest when there is a disaster that will need tax funds to rebuild.

    • Griz2000

      Red Cross? Sorry, I’d rather give money to organizations focussed on delivering services to those in need rather than fundraising and providing nice shiny new cars for their employees to zip around in.

      As for “tax funds to rebuild”, when did it become standard operating procedure for the taxpayer to be on the hook for private citizen’s losses? Obviously, much money will be required to rebuild government property and infrastructure… But if someone decided not properly insure their house and lost it, why is it society’s job to pay?

      Before you argue that some folks are too poor to afford insurance… Well, there are some folks that are too poor to afford housing in the first place. How is replacing some person’s house any different that GIVING him one?

      Did I miss the memo where the US became a socialist state, rather than a capitalist one?

      I sympathize with what I hope your intent is, helping the needy… But you should examine your premises and your methods.

        There are actually quite a few things the Red Cross does very well. Operation BBQ Relief was there today and set up and served 5000 lunches. http://www.operationbbqrelief.org/

      • TJ

        Sending money to any organization is good. Mercury One or Salvation Army or a dozen others. Red Cross has the the system where one can send money via text from their phone in a protest line. Not that they are the best they are the only one I know of that has that always up and ready to go.

        Even if they don’t want a dime of federal help the bill in congress to send billions of dollars is already being drafted and it will be sent to someone. It would be better optics for when the left attacks that the GOP opposed the bill or want offsets, send them a photo of someone holding a sign saying Send money to someone other than government for charity, have it be Red Cross, Mercury One or Salvation Army.

      Donate to Mercury One, Samaritan’s Purse or the Salvation Army if you want your donation to actually help victims as they recover from this disaster. I no longer trust the Red Cross to know where and how to help.

      • TJ

        Mercury One does not have the Text from you phone to send money. Something one can do when they are in the protest. Red Cross has that function.

        • redheadgrl

          But Trevor, just because they make it easy to donate doesn’t mean a majority of funds are going to the victims.

          • TJ

            The left thinks all charity for something like the Oklahoma tornado comes from government. So when there is a IRS protest it might as well be a protest against the victims in OK to protest them getting any federal money to rebuild. Having a sign to donate to anyone can dampen that smear they will level if they even notice it.

            If someone has a sign saying to go to Mercury one to donate will fine but one can send a Text when they read the sign in the middle of the protest to send $10 dollars to the Red Cross is fine as well even if not all the red cross money goes there.

  • Fedup US Expatriate

    We overseas Americans also mad! IRS has been targeting us for years! Penalties for small filing errors enormous! It is Penalty abuse and bullying! IRS never told any of us about FBARs! They are waiting for us to be late and hten nail us with a 10,000 to 500,000 penalty plus criminal charges! It’s insane! Please help us protest as we are not in the US to protest with over all these abuses of power!

    • AnitaPiece

      You sound worried, Troy. You should be. Because people care, Troy. And you know it. And what you should be particularly afraid of is them figuring out that what the IRS did is typical of gov’t run by libs. Because #fascism is what big gov’t libs do.

      It’s good that the MSM is no longer able to control all the messaging on this. Because they’re people like you.

    • ObamaFail

      If Bush had done this, you libs would have been whining. And people do care. Because they are seeing the fascism that is coming from the current administration, people are seeing that innocent people are being targeted for no reason while criminals are protected by Obama.

    • roccolore

      Liberal fascists care enough to attack the Tea Party movement. Of course, Democrats give a pass to Hamas-linked CAIR, whose leadership was convicted for their role in funding terrorists in 2008.

    Libs don’t understand another reason why this is such a big issue. The women who was actually in charge of the IRS when the targeting happened is now in charge of the Obamacare stuff. So we’re worried if she’s going to do the same thing next year with Obamacare and deny Conservatives coverage when they get sick.

    • truckee22

      No violence, no pooping on cop cars, no drugs, rapes, murders or suicides. Nothing at all like a typical Occuturd rally. Oh, and no overt racism and calls for violence either, as you would have seen at your typical Occuturd rally.

I don’t recall any incidents at ANY Tea Party rallies. I seem to remember a lot of violence and crime at the Occuturd rallies, not to mention the occasional cop car turd.

I can bet that many of these people have no connection to the Tea party but are really just the ordinary American pissed at the IRS. You see, they do it to one or two groups they can do it to others. And then to hide it and say they really did not break a law? You Guest, must be working for the administration or maybe it is the IRS you work for.

    Just got back from the Atlanta rally. There were a couple of hundred people there at the peak. We need to do this again in a couple weeks, but do it after 5pm on Friday. That way those who are working can attend. We need to get the thousands of patriots that couldn’t be there to the rallies. Too many people are still asleep and we need to wake them up.

    • DixieAngel_76

      I think that many more of them probably would protest, but the IRS has succeeded with their scare tactics for a lot of people. We need to push back, and push back hard, and most of all, we need our elected people of both parties to push back.

Hold a one day trial for all of them collectively and give them all the same punishment.

    Sung to the tune of the Beatles “The Taxman”
    Lyrics by Tacoma Narrows Teaparty Member

    Let me tell you how it will be
    No exemptions for TEA Parties
    ‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah, I’m the taxman

    If you’re 9/12 or TEA Party
    You’ll get extra scrutiny
    ‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah I’m the taxman

    You must tell me what your members say,
    You must tell me what you read today
    You must tell me how you like to pray
    If you don’t tell me I’ll make you pay!

    Don’t ask me what I want it for
    If you don’t want to wait some more
    ‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah, I’m the taxman

    If you don’t think we run things fair
    Wait til we run Obamacare
    ‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah, I’m the taxman
    And you’ll live or die based on what we will say

    About 50 people showed up at high noon in Yuma to exercise their First and Second Amendment rights. A common theme among the Tea Party members was that using the machinery of government to suppress dissent and political opposition is the very essence of tyranny.

    Signs varied from “Shut Down the IRS” to “We will not be Intimidated” to “Obama IRS Tyrant!” to “Congress disregards the Constitution it’s up to us to do something”
