Kokesh’s one-man open carry protest in DC

| July 4, 2013 | 33 Comments

We discussed Iraq Veterans Against the War member Adam Kokesh and his crackpot march on DC with loaded, openly carried weapons last May. Well, since the DC cops and the Park Police kind of shut down that idea from the get-go, he went all by his lonesome to Freedom Plaza, a few blocks from the White House, and loaded a shotgun. It’s here on this video;

According to WUSA9, the Park police are aware of the video;

US Park Police know about the video, says a spokesman, and they responded to Freedom Plaza to investigate. Park Police officers did not find Kokesh, or any protest going on, there.

The spokesperson said Park Police are investigating, but at this point cannot determine how the video was recorded, and if and when Kokesh may have been at Freedom Plaza with a gun.

After speaking with the USPP spokesperson, the Metropolitan Police Department released the following statement:

“The Metropolitan Police Department and US Park Police are aware that today Adam Kokesh posted a video that appears to have been taken in Freedom Plaza in Northwest, DC. We are in the process of determining the authenticity of the video.”

Thanks for making us gun owners look like crazy people, Adam. It’s almost like Kokesh is working against gun rights. I mean, it’s not like he’s pretended to be on the opposite side of an issue to make one of his pointless points.

    This character is really big with the so called fringe III percent movements. What these people simply do not understand is that their actions are doing more harm than good, even though I can agree with most of their complaints, but this IS NOT THE WAY to make any kind of political statements or Molan Labe type last stand.

  2. Green Thumb says:

    Loser.

  3. Steve says:

    Lol I thought this video was against guns, with his over the top acting,then I read the post only too see that this guy is for guns. He is just kinda perpetuating a stereotype with this video. What a tard, problem with the interweb though…every idiot has a voice now.

    It’s always DEMOCRATS being dangerous with firearms, you know?

    Look up any “mass shooting” you choose and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a Conservative or even a RINO. It’s always a Democrat or someone more likely to be one…

    Personally, I blame the parents…

  5. OWB says:

    The only point he seems to make is that he is willing to act like an idiot in public.

    Did anyone actually doubt that before seeing this video?

  6. setnaffa says:

    Look up the typical shooting in New York, Chicago, LA, St Louis, or any other big city…

    Democrats…

  7. Hayabusa says:

    Is it just me, or does he look like he just dropped a load in his Fruit of the Looms when he racks the slide and chambers a round?

  8. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    “We will not be silenced, we will not obey, we will not allow our government to destroy our humanity. We are the final, American, revolution. See you next Independence Day!”

    What a ridiculous statement. And what’s that “See you next Independence Day about? He now goes into hiding until next July? Or maybe he figures he’ll have the criminal case resolved by then–because that case surely is coming.

  10. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    @5. There doesn’t seem to have been any public around. Rather reminds me of John F. Kerry’s jungle stroll with camerman, if you know what I mean. The best thing that could happen is if forensics determines that Kokeshi superimposed himself on some footage and was never actually there. Oh the humanity! The shame! Failing that, it looks like 3-5 in the pokey. (Gee, I wonder about that pokey term now.)

  11. Ex-PH2 says:

    Are you kidding me? Quick, someone please up his dosage of meds. Please — for his own sake, before he hurts himself with one of those things!

  12. OldSargeUSAR says:

    Wasn’t this douche running for public office AS A REPUBLICAN in Arizona, or some such place?

    Asshat

  13. Country Singer says:

    @1 I think even the Oathkeepers organization has gotten rid of him. You can google it, I’m not going to link any of the offbeat sites here. But from what I’ve seen, the Threepers have figured out that Kokesh is a loon out for his own self-aggrandizement and no one else.

  14. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    @12. Yep–and, frankly, he would be no worse than most of the knuckleheads in Congress now.

  15. NHSparky says:

    It was 3rd CD in New Mexico, where even if he had managed to be the GOP nominee he’d have still lost by 40 points thanks to Santa Fe, Taos, etc.

    ASS

  17. streetsweeper says:

    @ #10: I am wondering the same thing about that video too. Plaza should have been crawling with people today because the Mall was jam packed with concert goers/fireworks crowds.

  18. B Woodman says:

    He looks SOOO grim and serious.
    Seriously, a stealth protest?
    If it’s stealth, is it a protest??

  19. S.Thomas says:

    This is all ridiculous, we have stood by long enough, we are beyond the point of just going and voting to fix a governmental system that has been completely infiltrated with NOW criminals who want you dead. Civil disobedience, then force are the only courses of recourse that remain in our hands until what was once a great republic is lost for good.
    Adam Kokesh is doing his best to do what he believes is write to save this nation, which is more than most of you could say, what have you risked, or given up lately for the cause of freedom. We have people like Kokesh going to prison, or Hastings a reporter blown up for teling the truth, or Snoden who is a hero, and a Patriot who risked his life, to tell the world what we already knew, but could not prove, as we where being lied to and told that it was just a crazy conspiracy theory. While the Government conducted thousands of criminal, and unconstitutional operations, against its own people, they are criminals who should be prosecuted immediately!!!
    To call Snowden a traitor, or spy, for reporting to his employers, the American people, seeing that he was a public servant, in a nation of the people, for the people, by the people, would be the same as prosecuting a rape victim for reporting that she was raped, while her rapist goes free.
    Meanwhile the government is conducting an all out war on the press, and any one who dares question them, with journalists turning up dead all over the place.
    Stand up now, or face the consequences!!!!!!!!

    I know its overcast so its hard to tell, but how much would bet that he did this at 6 am when no one was awake?

  22. USMCE8Ret says:

    He says his little spiel, quickly loads the shotgun, and probably got the hell outta there in a waiting car just feet away before the cops could show up.

    Loser.

  23. streetsweeper says:

    Nice try, S. Thomas. Too many of us here are familiar with and know far more about Kokesh than you think. He runs with marxist crews and little else. If you truly believe Adam has the “best interests” of this country in the fore-front of his B-B size brain, you’re sucking canal water.

  24. streetsweeper says:

    Oh yea, Snowden is a far cry from being a hero, you jackwagon. I see he’s still on the ground in Moscow as of yesterday. Last I knew, hero’s don’t run from trouble so that scores him high on the chickenshit list.

  25. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    S. Thomas. Hey, thanks for that. I’m sorry streetsweeper was so rude. Your meassage gave me pause and I spent some time contemplating it. I even reconsidered my admittedly jaundiced view of Adam and his efforts to awaken us all. Now, I can say, without any self doubt whatsoever, that you and Kokeshi can go F yourselves unconscious you common POS.

  26. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    Here’s that POS’s money line. The little [very bad word] “…what have you risked, or given up lately for the cause of freedom.” Just F you. That’s all. Just do that, will you? Thanks.

  27. OWB says:

    @ #26: My reaction to that oft repeated line is twofold. I concurrently laugh and contemplate saying, “Apparently not as much as you because I maintain my self-respect and will to live.”

  28. OIF '06-'07-'08 says:

    To S. Thomas who made a double post @20 & 21, From my initial post @1, and in response to your post @20/21, I rest my case.

    As I stated, I agree with most of the complaints voiced by the Threeper/Prepper/Oath Keeper movements, but your ways to a mean will only cause not only more harm, but also solidify the grips that the left has on this country even stronger.

    Think about it, why do you call your selves III percent?

  29. streetsweeper says:

    to 2/17 Air Cav: I streetsweeper, do hereby solemnly swear never to be rude to Mr S. Thomas again. It was an over-sight on my behalf and I request permission to stand on my head in a corner of a Huey, flying at maximum airspeed, dodging small arms fire and RPG’s. Then, I will wash and wax said Huey inside out to surpass even your most stringent inspection. Hooah!

    Dear Mr. S Thomas; Go F yourself (and Kokesh) in the ear with a frozen trout, you spineless little bastard. You mama wore combat boots that didn’t fit and lived in a run down, rat infested trailer park on the extreme south side of Columbus, Ga. Not only that but! the better part of you ended on the bedsheets. Which explains why you think so highly of Kokesh in the first place. Now, what have you done to insure your freedom lately, besides make me apologize to you for your stupid ass statements and questioning what we have done?

    To OWB: Sorry ma’am. 2/17 AC said I was being rude. As you can see I tried to rectify the situation. *crisp salute*

  30. Anonymous says:

    Right now, the DC cops and Park Police are hoping he gets eaten by an aligator or hit by a bus so they don’t have to arrest his ass and go through the nutroll that would mean if he comes back there.

  31. A Proud Infidel & Patriot says:

    Dear S. Thomas, fuck you up the ass sideways with a frozen puffer fish!!

  32. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    Dear S. Thomas,

    You are a complete fool. Continue your behavior and the Men in Black, Secret Service, FBI, and or a whole host of other fed, state, and or local LE agencies will be at your house and place of work to conduct a habious grabious on your dumb ass.

    Now, subtracting the intended satire from the aforementioned above, it is people like you and Kokesh that truly endanger or attempt to disrupt our federal republic.

    Yes federal republic, meaning nation of laws, restricted government, representatives selected by the masses, and in compliance with a constitution.

    We don’t live in a democracy where you and all you idiot friends get to vote in your parent’s garage or basement after a arduous day of playing video games and then decide (based on your vote) to create anarchy.

    I know your brain (or what is left of it after years of recreational drug use) is probably hurting because you thought you lived in a democracy … you don’t … so shit can your grand idea of violence against my country. There are several steps that must be taken before the masses “dissolve the political bonds which have connected them.” And the safeguards in our great country will most probably ensure we never dissolve our constitution. The safeguard I speak of is the election of representatives. Assuming your might be old enough to vote … why don’t you try it.

    Any questions?

    MCPO

    Street: How many times I gotta tell you DON’T EVER APOLOGIZE?? *returns salute*

    Carry on.
