Tea Partiers have been relatively quiet in regards to protests recently, but the IRS scandal has once again fired them up- as protests are now organized nationwide Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at IRS offices around the country.

The Tea Party Patriots website describes the demonstrations:

"On behalf of Tea Party Patriot groups, 9/12, liberty activists, and the American people, we are calling for anyone and everyone to protest the IRS' complete abuse of power on Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at noon local time."

"All tea party patriot groups have received from the IRS in the past year and a half are corrosive and deceitful cover-ups and contradictions," said Tea Party Patriots cofounder Jenny Beth Martin.

"The damage the IRS has caused may be immeasurable," Martin said, adding, "Tea Party Patriots has not backed down, and we will keep fighting."

The website also includes a downloadable protest toolkit for those who wish to attend.

"The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is out of control and we need to stand up and let them know that we will not take their intimidation tactics!," says the site.
