(Slay News) – 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.’”
The IRS is hiring new special agents!

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.

Why are Biden and Democrats asking for billions of dollars to hire 87,000 new IRS agents? Why are they asking these 87,000 new agents to be armed and prepared to US deadly force? Why did the FBI raid Trumps home yet lose Hunter Biden’s laptop? Does that spell GESTAPO?

One year ago, the FBI used the Patriot Act to spy on parents.
Three days ago, Democrats voted to hire 87,000 new IRS agents.
Two days ago, the FBI raided President Trump’s home.
And one day ago, the FBI confiscated @RepScottPerry’s phone.

The Democrats are anti-guns… unless it's guns for their new IRS agents who are authorized to use deadly force.
