Leader of July 4 armed march on D.C. arrested

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.

The next day, Kokesh was charged with felony assault of a federal officer and is held without bail. (Source)

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….”

All the more reason that “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”.

Many believe Kokesh to be a fraud, a dangerous schill.

Mr. Kokesh is a shill, at best, and much much worse. His radio show was on RT – Russia Today. HELLO!?! Any one out there with any sense (common or otherwise) would see him for what he is … the modern day version of John Kerry and his dispicable display of treason, all for the cause; and that cause is NOT for the Liberty and Freedom provided in the Constitution but what his “handlers” tell him from the FSB.

Two of my sons are Marines, and the mere mention of his name and his ilk are enough to bring on a tirade of contempt and threats of extreme prejudice because these Benedict Arnold’s hide behind the American flag and their military service to advance an alternative agenda, all in the name of Liberty and Freedom? Simply serpents serving Satan and the cause of evil, in my opinion and many others. Also, think on it for a nanosecond… 1000 OPENLY ARMED men descending on DC, the no gun zone of the Western World and he’s just gonna walkl right up… Read more »

What are the rest of you going to do? I support Adam and the march. If turns bad it will be the government slaughtering it’s citizens. Stand and be counted. Are you going to ask, pretty please, mat we have our rights back? Peaceful protest ends with police beatings shootings and prepper spraying. MLK, Kent State, OWS, freedom riders, etc

The video clearly shows the police grabbing him, manhandling him and arresting him while he was speaking. You cannot arrest someone only for resisting arrest. What was the first charge for which you were arresting them that they resisted? You may be next. He may be crazy but that does not mean they aren’t trying to shut him up for criticizing Obama.

Number 41. I am going to the march. I do not own a gun. I will come armed with my camera because if this get any media attention it will be screwed with and spliced. This is standing up for your rights. Not just the second amendment, but all of our rights. People want to say this is madness, but our country was founded by the brave minutemen that fired the “shot heard around the world.” We, as me and the rest owe our very lives and the right to be here. These very real men that stood and took… Read more »

oh yeah,and if you want go back and listen to the information he gives about the march he wants. Not just for you but all of us.What are you going to do when the military and/or police kills these people? Say, well, they were just doing their jobs. Like the SS explained in the Nazi trials, “but I was just following orders.” A lot of you don’t like him because he smokes pot. IT’S JUST A PLANT and if you want to get upset because it is your Christian faith, I suggest you going back and read all about what… Read more »

Why would Adam put himself in a position to be arrested a month and a half before his big “F-You, Government” march? And for such small potatoes as the Smoke Down Prohibition? I’m no strategic genius, but even I would know enough to lie low before an announced offense…unless, of course, it were to serve some purpose.

Maybe Kokesh is just another “crisis actor?”

I had no idea what a tool this guy is. While I stick by the original quote (‘The tree of liberty sometimes has to be watered with the blood of despots and patriots’), I certanly don’t want to be associated with ANYONE associated with the POS or his minions.
