Liberals are not messing around.
The left wants to silence all its critics.
And you won’t believe what criminal act a top Fox News host just got accused of committing.
“Fox and Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade slammed the IRS for a job posting where one of the requirements was a willingness to carry a firearm and use “deadly force if necessary.”
“Before the IRS took it down yesterday, there was a posting on their website that listed the job requirements for a special agent’s position. The major duties require agents to ‘carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force, if necessary,’” Kilmeade stated.
On the heels of the FBI raiding Donald Trump’s property Kilmeade worried that Joe Biden was now weaponizing tax collection against the left’s political enemies.
“A little like James Bond, but instead of hunting down evil maniacs, these agents hunt down and kill middle-class taxpayers that don’t pay enough?” Kilmeade told viewers. “It’s Joe Biden’s new army.”
These comments outraged MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough.
Scarborough dipped into the left’s well-worn playbook to accuse Kilmeade of inciting violence against IRS agents ranting:
I know this all sounds melodramatic until you have the head of the FBI [Chris Wray] saying we’re facing unprecedented threats. People that I know, people I’ve known my entire life are texting me and talking about replacing the U.S. government. Talking about civil war. And you go, ‘What’s wrong with you?’
They say, the IRS agents are coming with AR-15s and they’re coming to our doors and they’re going to kill us. Or they’re saying the FBI is coming to raid our house and take our guns away from us.
These are the lies that have been spread not by — this is what’s so disturbing — not by back benchers. These lies have been spread by Chuck Grassley, by Kevin McCarthy, by top news hosts at Fox News. This is not Infowars. This is mainstream, pro-Trump rhetoric. And they are deliberately trying to get Americans to a position of where they’ll do harm to IRS agents.
After the FBI raided Donald Trump’s home FBI Director Christopher Wray tried to cast the Bureau as the true victim of the event.
Wray warned that the real danger to the country was not the Biden administration using the FBI to raid the home of the opposition leader, but the fact that some Americans were mad at the FBI.
Scarborough picked up on those talking points accusing Kilmeade and other Republicans of inciting criminal violence against the federal government.
“Can you imagine Chuck Grassley talking about the IRS having a ‘strike force,’ quote, ‘that goes in with AR-15s already loaded, ready to shoot some small-business people,’” Scarborough said. “A top Fox News host saying that the IRS is coming to, quote, ‘hunt down and kill middle-class taxpayers.’ IRS coming to hunt down and kill middle-class taxpayers.”
