IRS Seeking Agents ‘Willing to Use Deadly Force’

Democrat President Joe Biden’s Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has provoked a fierce backlash after it emerged that the federal agency is seeking agents who are “willing to use deadly force.”

On Wednesday, the IRS posted a job description for new special agents.

The ad included a note that a “key requirement” of the job is being “legally allowed to carry a firearm,” Fox Business reported.

Moreover, “major duties” required applicants “be willing to use deadly force, if necessary.”

Agents must also be “willing and able to participate in arrests, execution of search warrants, and other dangerous assignments.”

Following a firestorm on social media, the post was taken down for a time.

The posting later reappeared later with the words “deadly force” omitted.

The Internet is forever, however.

Filmmaker Ford Fischer shared a screenshot of the original description as it was posted and the job ad has continued to circulate online.

“The IRS is hiring new special agents!” Fischer tweeted Wednesday.

“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.’”

This job description came on the heels of news that the IRS could add as many as 87,000 new agents as part of the Inflation Reduction Act.

The measure passed the Senate last weekend and will likely sail through the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives.

This combination added to suspicions over abuse of power in government agencies, including the IRS.

The IRS has already amassed $725,000 worth of ammunition this year alone.

The news also follows the raid on President Donald Trump’s home by Joe Biden’s FBI on Monday.

It’s reasonable that the job of a special agent at the IRS requires more practical hands-on crime-fighting skills than the usual desk jockey auditing spreadsheets would.

However, the convergence of many troubling moves by the Biden administration and its bureaucracy is reason enough to warrant further scrutiny.

Moreover, the relationship between the government and the governed has fundamentally changed in recent years.

COVID-19 lockdowns and mask and vaccine mandates were a huge infringement of the public’s freedoms.

Americans are rightfully wary.

Perhaps it’s simply that the IRS was hoping to entice new applicants by playing up the law-enforcement aspect of the job with a sexy-sounding job description.

Nevertheless, times like these demand vigilance against tyranny.
