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.
