DHS attends several Tea Party protests of IRS, armed police photographed at St Louis event

On Tuesday, demonstrations took place at IRS offices nationwide as various Tea Party groups protested being targeted by the agency. Monitoring the protests, however, were armed agents of the Department of Homeland Security.

Tea Party-led IRS protests in states like Missouri, Florida, Illinois and Indiana with armed “police” being photographed at the St. Louis rally by Gateway Pundit writer Jim Hoft.

Hoft noted that 300 people were in attendance.

“Many of our 300 tea party folks were approached immediately by Homeland Security and told they could not be on federal property. My lawyer told me as long as I didn’t block passage we were OK. Many Homeland Security trucks and a helicopter above us scared many patriots so most of group went to public side walk to rally,” an unnamed Tea Party activist told Hoft.

A report at BizPac Review said the DHS also made an appearance at a Tea Party protest in Florida.

“Under the watchful eye of Homeland Security — yes, they were present — protestors carried signs that read ‘We Do Not Consent to Tyranny,’ ‘Abolish the IRS’ and ‘Don’t Target me Bro!,’ making it clear they do not condone the use of the IRS as a political weapon,” Tom Tillison wrote.

According to reports, the Tea Party protests concluded without incident.

  1. […] Secretary Janet Napolitano sent out the goon squad to “monitor” Tea Party protests in Missouri, Florida, Indiana and […]

  2. AS AVERAGE CITIZENS, WE MUST DEPEND ON THE MEDIA TO PROVIDE RELIABLE INFORMATION ON PUBLIC POLICY AND GOVERNMENT. AFTER THE NOVEMBER ELECTION, JOURNALISTS STATED MOST VOTERS CONSIDER THE Tea Party TO BE “OUT-OF-STEP” IN THIS “CHANGING DEMOGRAPHY.” YES – CONSERVATIVES WILL GAIN SEATS IN 2014; BUT, IF Tea Party CONTINUES TO SHOW ITS FACE, 2016 IS LOST.
