Remember Adam Kokesh? They nabbed him, see below:
May 23, 2013. Philadelphia. The Iraq War vet and former Marine who is organizing the July 4 armed march on Washington was arrested by federal authorities Saturday. Radio personality and civil rights activist Adam Kokesh was taken into custody while leading a marijuana reform rally complete with a group smoke-out. Authorities aren’t commenting. But Kokesh’s supporters suspect the arrest was related to the upcoming July 4 gun rally, not Saturday’s pot protest.
One week ago, Whiteout Press predicted Adam Kokesh’s arrest by federal authorities. Saturday, it happened. Image courtesy of Examiner.com.
There are a number of factors regarding Saturday’s arrest of libertarian and Constitutional activist Adam Kokesh that are raising eyebrows among impartial observers. Federal officials first would only say that he was arrested for resisting arrest. That position alone was causing an outcry among supporters. By its definition, anyone who’s charged with resisting arrest had to have been arrested for something else to begin with. Finally, federal authorities confirmed that Kokesh is being held on a charge of felony assault on a police officer.
We need better Government, but we do not need left-wing whack a doodles, posing as people on our side, making the Tea Party movement looking like idiots. Here’s hope that keep that nutjob locked up for a very long time.
A reminder about this whack job from 2006 via Michelle Malkin:
Before there was a nationwide, grass-roots Tea Party movement, there was another nationwide, grass-roots movement that brought thousands of Americans to Washington, D.C. They called themselves the “Gathering of Eagles.” I covered two massive, GoE rallies against the Soros-funded, anti-war Left in March 2007 and September 2007. GOE activists continue to expose the transnational progressives, anti-military bullies, and phonies who operate under the “peace” banner.
One of the groups that GOE dogged was Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) — whose members have included bomb-threat bullies and death-threat nutballs who threatened to assassinate me, fake Army vet Jesse MacBeth, and another prominent member who smeared the Young America’s Foundation by faking an anti-Muslim hate flyer and smeared David Horowitz with similar race-card playing flyers, then weaseled out of the attacks by claiming they were “satire.”
The last two incidents involved an IVAW member named Adam Kokesh. He marched in uniform in mock patrols for the anti-war movement, paraded around holding an upside-down American flag (see Jonn Lilyea for more), was arrested for defacing signs, and traveled to Germany to urge soldiers to abandon their posts and seek aid and comfort with his anti-war minions.
Kokesh, believe it or not, is now running as a Republican candidate for Congress in New Mexico. And, believe it or not, he is getting positive exposure on at least one Fox News show. He has the backing of Ron Paul, the Republican Liberty Caucus, and the 9/12 Project.
He is an anti-war smear merchant in GOP clothing. Spread the word.
Another from 2007 from This ain’t hell blog. I am not quoting that one; I will simply say this, Adam Kokesh is not a Tea party person, he is not a Conservative, he is not a Republican, he is not a libertarian. He is, in fact, a left-wing, anti-war whack job and should be purged from our ranks.
