Audit The IRS Rally Expected To Be Biggest Tea Party Protest Since 2010

June 18, 2013 by  

 

Mainstream media is, thus far, characteristically mum on coverage of the event— but what is expected to be the largest gathering of Tea Party activists since 2010 will converge on Washington D.C. Tuesday in protest of the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservatives.

The event, dubbed the Audit the IRS Rally, will occur from noon until 2 p.m. on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol.

 

Tea Party Patriots, the event organizers, have lined up an inclusive group of conservative speakers to address attendees, among those who will be present: Glenn Beck, Senator Mike Lee, Representative Michele Bachmann, Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Rand Paul, Jenny Beth Martin, Representative Steve King, Representative Dave Camp, Representative Louie Gohmert, Representative Jim Jordan, Representative Tim Huelskamp, Representative Jim Bridenstine, Representative John Fleming, Representative Tom Graves, Representative Tom Price, Representative Mike Kelly, Representative Matt Salmon, Tea Party Leaders, Dana Loesch, Steve Bannon, Sonnie Johnson, Jim Hoft, Niger Innis and Andrew Marcus.

The organization cites a speech given by Becky Gerritson of Wetumpka Tea Party in testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee as an example of the spirit behind the rally.

She told lawmakers earlier this month:

We are patriotic Americans. We peacefully assemble. We petition our government. We exercise our right to free speech and we don’t understand why our government tried to stop us. We aren’t here as serfs or vassals. We’re not begging our lords for mercy. We are born free American citizens and we’re telling our government that you’ve forgotten your place. It’s not your responsibility to look out for our well being and monitor our speech. It’s not your right to assert an agenda. The post that you occupy exists to preserve American liberty. You’ve sworn to perform that duty and you have faltered.
