Two weeks ago, I did a post on radio host and Iraq war veteran Adam Kokesh’s plan to lead an armed march on Washington, D.C., this July 4, Independence Day, to put government on notice that we won’t be intimidated.
In a Ron Paul rally on September 2, 2008, Kokesh had made evident his political views when he declared that “While it is our responsibility now to resist tyranny civilly, while we still can, there may come a time when we will say to the powers that be, be it with your blood or ours we have come to water the tree of liberty … who will stand with me?”
True to his words, on May 5, 2013, Kokesh launched the planned armed march as a group on Facebook, the “Open Carry March on Washington.” He hoped to get 1,000 supporters to march into the nation’s capital with loaded rifles.
TPTB are seeing to it that the march will not happen.
As reported by Natural News, three days ago, on May 19, 2013, police dragged Adam Kokesh from a “Smoke Down Prohibition” protest in Philadelphia and charged him with “resisting arrest,” which Kokesh denies. This YouTube video of the arrest shows Adam Kokesh clearly NOT resisting, holding his hands up in a surrender posture and trying to maintain his balance while a gang of police drag him away from the event.
Kokesh can’t organize the planned armed march from jail. No doubt, the authorities will hold Kokesh until July 4 is past and gone.
Welcome to the Soft Tyranny of Obama’s America.
Update (May 27, 2013):
Adam Kokesh has been released from jail. He’s now calling for marches on all 50 state capitals. See my post “Kokesh released from jail….”
