Adam Kokesh marched alone to D.C., July 4, with shotgun

Rate this post

Remember Adam Kokesh?

He’s an anti-war activist and non-combat veteran of the Iraq War. In May 2013, Kokesh called for armed marches by Americans on Washington, D.C. and on all 50 state capitals across the United States. (See “Who is Adam Kokesh? – the man calling for an armed American revolution.”)

Whatever we may think of Adam Kokesh — and there are some good reasons to be skeptical and wary about him — the man has cojones.

Today, on the 237th anniversary of the first July 4th Independence Day, Kokesh marched, alone, to Washington, D.C., armed with a large shotgun.

Adam Kokesh

As recounted by Clash Daily:

[…] Adam Kokesh [stood] on a busy Washington DC street with the silhouette of the Capitol building behind him. I could hear lots of traffic in the background, and Adam was holding a large, twelve gauge pump shotgun about chest level. And then he spoke while loading the shotgun one round at a time.

“We will not be silent!

We will not obey!

We will not allow the government to destroy our humanity!

We are the final American revolution!

See you next Independence Day!”

Wow! In my last article I made the following statement: “Adam Kokesh has balls you could shoot through a cannon, and I have to respect that. He believes vehemently in his cause and is willing to go to prison for it.”

Apparently I was right on that one. Anyone who would load up right there on Freedom Plaza between the White House and the Capitol definitely has balls. And then just to remove all doubt he posted it on YouTube!

[…] I recall asking Adam this question in our last interview: “Are you concerned that other people won’t show up to stand beside you?”

Adam’s response was immediate and sure. “No. I’ll stand alone.”

And I’ll be darned if he didn’t go ahead and do it. Adam Kokesh marched armed on Washington DC all by himself. No one else put themselves in jeopardy. No one else stuck their head on the chopping block. It was just Adam Kokesh.

[…] It will be interesting to see what comes of Adam now. Will the feds hunt him down and arrest him … again? I’m not sure, but it will be fun to watch. Whether you’re for Adam and his methods or against him, one thing you have to admit:  The man does have flair.

But then again, perhaps the federal government has too much on its plate already to be bothered with one little man like Adam Kokesh. I remember asking Adam this question: “How can I no longer fear the government?”

His answer was immediate. “Stand up and make yourself more trouble than you’re worth. The federal government is a paper tiger, and without our consent they are powerless.”

Well, he’s definitely made plenty of trouble for the federal government and now the ball is in their court. […] Adam Kokesh … my hat is off to you. You are quite possibly the only man in Washington DC right now who keeps his promises.

Adam Kokesh is right. Look at what just happened in Egypt.

The Egyptian people had had enough of the Obama-supported Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood. They assembled by the tens of thousands in Cairo, demanding that Morsi step down. Morsi refused, the military overthrew him, and the people won — at least for now….

  1. Sorry, but have to consider….green screen.

    Not everything is what it seems. Especially for someone in the biz Adam is in.

  2. Along the lines of #41’s thought . It might be easy to have big brass ones when you know in advance YOU will not be bothered ! Just a random thought ………

  3. As previously stated on this blog site… Agent Provocateur, end of story!

  4. There is no way I will trust this guy. Our shadow government is drooling for a chance to declare martial law. And due to the honorable behavior of most conservatives, they need people like Mr. Kokesh to create a fake revolution. No trust. No way.

    • Good point, TD, Locke Enlode, and japoa. I’ll believe Kokesh actually went to D.C. if we get independent eyewitness report(s) and a video of him taken by an independent source.

      • Just think about it . If a policeman would have seen him do this ; this guy would be in the slammer in a N.Y. minute . Granted , the cops can’t be everywhere all the time but that close to the capital , Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm…….Just another random thought !

        Hope everybody had a good 4th …

      • Thanks Dr. Eowyn,
        It will be interesting to learn more about Mr. Kokesh.

        And on Egypt, the success of the citizens and military certainly made me think about America.

    • TD
      I totally agree with you my friend, Kokesh is all over the landscape when it comes to his true motives/allegiances.

  5. I was sincerely hoping that 1wanderingtruthseeker actually went to film. (Dr. E, why did you remove all those exchanges with her?) But then, she may have been waiting where Adam said he would be starting the “march” – cause he ain’t there in this video. He said: “we will muster at the National Cemetery & at noon we will step off to march across the Memorial Bridge, down Independence Avenue, around the Capitol, the Supreme Court, & the White House, then down Constitution Avenue to peacefully return to Virginia across the Memorial Bridge”.

    It would be very odd that NOBODY else was there to record, yes?

    Maybe they were all waiting at the Arlington Cemetery parking lot.

    • (Dr. E, why did you remove all those exchanges with her?)

      Because she was foul and vicious, and I do not relish seeing her hate on FOTM.

      • Dr. Eowyn,

        I was just asking about it – not “dictating” you should or shouldn’t have done anything.

        You might be upset that I don’t accept Kokesh’s claims wholesale. But I don’t. I’m not accusing you. He works with video production folks. He has access. I don’t believe everything from CNN, FOX or MSNBC either (you’ve probably seen Anderson Cooper’s disappearing nose at the Pozner “funeral” when working on the Sandy Hook stuff). Here’s another example of Kokesh’s put-on three weeks ago from another source:

        So he didn’t have intention of actually smoking marijuana at the marijuana smoking protest – HE JUST WANTED TO LOOK LIKE IT. Note once again, he is on federal property and another bogus arrest.

        I think Bobby forced his hand. He had to put up or shut up.

        Now consider he has been filming this movie (starring for the first time!! *riiiight*): (second post down)

        The only other video you can find as of now on the freedom plaza video is of a couple news reports – which of course are using Adam’s footage and saying “police are investigating its authenticity” before doing anything about it.

        I believe nothing ever happens to adam for loading that shotgun in DC with real shells. Even if he did, it can’t be proven from that video. By design.

  6. I know enough about chroma ‘aka green screen’ that it is not. Just saying….

  7. The voice crying in the wilderness………………………………
    Amen to Mr Kokesh Walk on water my brother………..
    The force be with you and all that good stuff.
    Onward Christian soldiers…………………wake up you lot!
    Smell the coffee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
