Again, there’s that long-running joke that we don’t have a secret police force or an American version of the Schutzstaffel because the Internal Revenue Service exists. Of all agencies in the government, this one probably has the most accurate and up-to-date files on every taxpayer, which is no surprise. It was seen as the most hated agency in America for legitimate purposes, though the FBI and DOJ might have supplanted them given the recent raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago.
Still, the IRS becoming secret police might no longer be a joke. The page was taken down for problematic copy regarding the special agent positions, but screenshots were taken. It read fine regarding the hours, being open to working on weekends, and other rudimentary line items of federal employment. Where most people’s eyes fell out of their sockets should have occurred when it also said that one must be comfortable carrying a firearm and, if necessary, use deadly force.
