Breitbart.com and CSPAN are covering the Tea Party IRS, and Immigration rallies in Washington with live blogs and video. Despite the early start on a day in the middle of the week, a couple hundred activists attended the beginning of the event and more are coming by the hour. It is a sign of growing anxiety in the grass-roots over the Senate amnesty legislation.
“Border security, Rule of Law Members of Congress are unlikely to get a full debate inside the halls of Congress,” King said. “So we are taking the debate outside it’s halls.”
Thousands of Americans are also arriving in Washington, D.C.a mass “Audit the IRS” rally to protest the IRS’s targeting of Tea Party and conservative groups. The Tea Party Patriots, a group targeted by the IRS, organized the rally.
Tea Partiers and conservatives who were targeted will speak at the rally along with prominent conservative legislators like Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Rand Paul (R-KY), Mike Lee (R-UT) and Reps. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Michele Bachmann (R-MN). Breitbart News executive chairman Stephen K. Bannon and Breitbart’s Sonnie Johnson will also speak at the rally.
