Adam vs. the Man activist Adam Kokesh, a Marine Corps Reserve veteran, has announced an armed march on Washington D.C. for July 4th. The event calls for protesters to carry loaded rifles slung across their backs as they march on Washington. It has been announced on Kokesh’s Facebook page.
Appearing briefly on the Alex Jones Show today, Adam Kokesh explained, “This is an armed revolt against the American government. Make no mistake about it.”
Is Adam Kokesh crazy, or courageous?
The mainstream media is already calling Kokesh “radicalized,” although such accusations carry no credibility whatsoever from a leftist media that believes anyone who even owns a gun is a possible terrorist. So I don’t pay any attention to what they call people. Most media heads are freedom-hating morons to begin with. Their voices don’t even count.
So let’s examine this from the perspective of the informed, liberty-minded kind of people who read Natural News:
On one hand, there’s no denying Adam Kokesh has a monstrous set of cajones. Announcing such an event takes a level of courage bordering on sheer insanity (for reasons I’ll outline below). But at one level, you gotta hand it to Kokesh for being willing to stand his ground on issues he believes in. If more people followed their passions and refused to be silenced bygovernment, we wouldn’t be living under a tyrannical government regime in the first place.
On the issue of gun rights, Kokesh and I agree on the principles: Americans have a sacred right to “keep and bear arms,” and yes, that even means walking down the street with an AR-15 slung over your shoulder if that’s your choice.
Doing so in Washington D.C., however, is currently a crime (because of DC’s unconstitutional gun laws), and that means Kokesh and those who join him in the march are willing to be arrested or possibly even shot for standing their ground on their beliefs.
Again, that stance is actually commendable at a philosophical level. If you’re not willing to die for liberty, you don’t really understand what liberty is. But what concerns me about this march is not the principle upon which it is being conducted… it’s the ease in which the whole thing could be turned into a government false flag event.
Is Adam Kokesh handing the government a perfect false flag event?
An armed activist march is all too easy to be hijacked by the government — which is always looking for more false flag opportunities to paint gun owners as crazy nut jobs.
All you have to do is have a dozen undercover FBI provocateurs join the march, then organize a few cops to start hassling some of those conducting the march. On queue, the undercover FBI guys — who specialize at staging false flag operations in the USA — open fire on the cops.
Get it all on video and you’ve got news footage of apparent “patriots” gunning down police in D.C.
Anderson “CIA” Cooper then uses this footage on CNN to explain why Obama has suddenly declared martial law and ordered all Americans to turn in their guns to government agents who are go door to door for “public safety” reasons, just like we saw in Boston recently. “Shelter in place!”
Voila! The perfect government false flag operation to destroy the Second Amendment. And Adam Kokesh is practically handing it to them on a silver platter, through no fault of his own. There’s no way to really have security for participating in this event… anyone can join up by just showing up with a rifle. How hard will it be for the government to place a few Adam Lanzas orJames Holmes in the marching crowd, complete with brainwashing instructions to open fire when a particular trigger event is set off?
This is exactly why Alex Jones has never led such a march. It’s far too easy for government provocateurs to hijack the march and use it to make gun owners look like crazy whack jobs (even when they aren’t).
For this reason, I have to question Adam Kokesh’s tactical thinking on this one. It’s ballsy, yes, but also far too easy to have it all blow up in your face. And to pre-announce on live national radio that your march is, “an armed revolt against the American government” is just begging to have your march targeted with an Obama-approved drone strike.
All that being said, armchair quarterbacking is a whole lot easier than hitting the street and marching for what you believe in. So despite the fact that I question the sanity of this event — and I think it might easily be turned into a government-run false flag event to make gun owners look like psychos — I still have to hand it to Kokesh for having the balls to even attempt such a show of civil disobedience.
Truth be said, if more people had the courage to do what Adams Kokesh is doing (but in different ways), we wouldn’t be occupied by this criminal government in the first place. My only concern is that this is giving the government an event that can be easily turned into a bloodbath that’s used to blame gun owners.
Needless to say, I won’t be marching on the U.S. Capitol with an AR-15. I will, however, be marching against Monsanto this May 25th, carrying a loaded protest sign.
