Adam Kokesh; not feeling the hope

| January 23, 2009

The other day, in DuPont Circle at the Shoe Bush protest, the day before the Inauguration, I saw Adam Kokesh, poster child for everything that’s wrong with IVAW, threaten that he was throwing a combat boot at the 30-foot blow-up doll of George Bush on that day, but that he was saving the other boot for Obama. The threat to Obama comes at the end of this six minute video;

Not waiting for Obama to screw up, Kokesh named Obama a potential war criminal on his website;

But the whole reason I video’d Kokesh was to catch him calling himself “Sergeant Kokesh”. To his credit, he has stopped that. Below is Kokesh’s DD214 which proves what I’ve been saying the last few years; he’s not a sergeant.


So that puts that issue to rest.

Along with his DD214, the Records Center sent the evidence against Kokesh that the Marine Corps used to downgrade his discharge at the hearing he was forced to attend when he was trolling the National Mall in his uniform pretending to be on patrol in Iraq (not that he ever went on patrol in Iraq). I found the evidence to be quite satisfying since it was an article in the Washington Post with pictures – the same article I used to prove his guilt.

I’m guessing the article is included with his records so that if he ever tries to upgrade his discharge, the evidence for the denial still exists.

    Anonypuss, did you even make it to the third grade before you dropped out of school and started drawing welfare? And were your Mother/Aunt and Father/Uncle still brother and sister after their divorce?

    It’s always interesting to try to intepret the illiterate scribblings of someone who usually writes in texting instead of English. Texting is not an actual language; it’s an alphabetical shorthand. Unfortunately, it makes the user look like what he usually is, like this Anonymous person: functionally illiterate and only able to communicate in run-on sentences and verbal diarrhea, with poor or no grammatical sensibility and no concept of punctuation, spelling or vocabulary.

    Oh, yeah, my degree is a 4-year BA in Modern Languages (French, Spanish and German) from a midwestern university, with a minor in Fine Art and a 3.50 overall average on a 4.0 basis. I made the Dean’s List (scholastic honors) every semester, and I finished my degree in 3.5 years instead of 4 by taking extra credit hours and going to summer school, just so I could be in the Navy.

    Oh, yeah – while I’m at it, you really should ask for a refund, anonymousie. You were ripped off but good, sport.

    It’s just a shame they promised you’d have a job guaranteed when you got that piece of paper, isn’t it?

    How’s life in the garbage collection business these day?

    Oh, anonymousie didn’t know it’s cool to be a whore, so it isn’t an insult.

    I’m right up there with the (gag me) Kardashians and Paris Hilton, the dingbat.

    Sed fraudulentus anonymousie est.

    Gee, even decades after high school, I still speak Latin.

    Futue te ipsum, anonyrat.

    Hey, what happened to the “interior decorator” @58 that just vanished? I didn’t send a shot at myself….

    OldSargeUSAR: the spam filter sometimes takes a while to find and remove spam. Your call, but IMO it’s generally best to not not waste the time replying if something looks like spam. It sometime doesn’t stick around very long.

  10. OldSargeUSAR says:

    @60 – Ok, thanks for the explanation. My spam filter wasn’t working. Didn’t recognize it.

    I actually never had a problem with Adam Kokesh until recently. He seems to have gone off the deep end. I saw an interview he did with Dakota Myer where he was honestly just a jerk to the guy, and some of his recent interviews are just down right disrespectful. I actually lost a lot of respect for the guy. He seems to throw the fact that he saw minor combat in Iraq as credentials. Yes, I actually know guys who where in his civil affairs unit and they said they saw minor combat. “we only saw one actual engagement and we where driving in a humvee.” Adam is a douche.
