Adam Kokesh under fire on Glenn Beck's 9/12 site (updated)

Liberty candidates are under fire on all fronts. Even from groups that claim to be for liberty and the Constitution.

On the main page of the 9/12 Project's website, and again in its New Mexico forum are topics named "A Traitor in Sheep's clothing trying to deceive the Voters"

This is a hit piece on Adam Kokesh and needs to be slapped down. The thread on the New Mexico is worse than the one on the front page, but they both need to be countered.

Update: For those that want to see what the attack is before going to the site, here it is.

-----------------------------------
We are writing to you to express our grave concerns about Adam Kokesh, who is aspiring to become the Republican nominee for US Congress from New Mexico’s 3rd district. Mr. Kokesh has an extensive, and well-documented history of affiliations with radical leftist groups. In concert with these groups he has engaged in numerous anti-America and anti-military demonstrations and protests. Moreover, Mr. Kokesh does not appear to have any personal qualifications that would recommend him for serious consideration as a candidate for the Republican Party. He has a significant history suggestive of poor character and judgment, and he has notable incidents of direct activism against Republican office holders.

Affiliations with radical leftist groups
Mr. Kokesh joined the Iraq Veterans Against War (IVAW) in February 2007, at which time he was 25 years old. The IVAW was formed by the Vietnam Veterans Against War (VVAW), the now infamous group, formed by John Kerry in 1970, and responsible for the fraudulent maligning of our Vietnam veterans at the Winter Soldier Conference in 1971.

It will be recalled that John Kerry now stands exposed as having repeated false accusations from that conference, during Congressional testimony in 1971. Similar to the VVAW, the IVAW is a virulently anti-military, anti-America group. It holds the view that our country is an imperialistic and expansionistic “One World Order” government, and that our military is but a tool of this government. Further, they believe that our soldiers are little more than marauders and murderers who, in the words of John Kerry, behave “in a fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan”.

Mr. Kokesh was active in the IVAW from 2007 to 2009, at which time he announced his candidacy for Republican Congressman from New Mexico. There are no indications that he has revoked his affiliations with the IVAW. As an active member of the IVAW, Mr. Kokesh was involved in numerous anti-military, and by explicit extension, anti-Bush/Republican activities and actions. While executing these actions, Mr. Kokesh knowingly and gladly, made common cause with a wide array of other well-known, radical anti-America and communist groups. The list of these other groups includes, but is by no means limited to, the following:

SDS
Code Pink
A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition
United for Justice and Peace
Communist Party of America
Muslim Brotherhood
Black Panthers

In cooperation with the above-named groups and the IVAW, Mr. Kokesh: participated in multiple anti-war demonstrations in Washington DC, and other cites throughout the country; organized and incited violent demonstrations at military recruiting stations; participated in an initiative to encourage active duty soldiers to desert their military post; organized and participated in a Winter Soldier Conference 2, an effort designed to malign and undercut the moral of our soldiers who were fighting and dying on the battlefield. Even a most cursory search of the Internet will yield a plethora of documents attesting to the veracity of these assertions.

Personal character questions, and anti-Republican Party activities

Apart from his considerable radical leftist affiliations and activities, there many concerns about Mr. Kokesh’s general personal qualifications for congressman; and we have specific concerns about the appropriateness of his being considered for being a Republican congressman. Mr. Kokesh has no history of personal accomplishments or achievement, yet he does have a notable history of poor judgment and illegal behavior. Moreover, he has no history of supporting the Republican Party, and in fact has been actively unsupportive and undermining of the Party.

Mr. Kokesh’s personal accomplishments and achievements appear to be limited to his having served in the Marine Corps from 1999 until 2006, and his political activism with the IVAW from 2007 until 2009. His MC service was basically unremarkable, in terms of citations, medals, and commendations, and it was ultimately marked by a demotion in his discharge rank, from Sergeant to Corporal, and a downgrading of his discharge status from honorable to general. Mr. Kokesh’s tenure with the IVAW has been noted above and need not be repeated here.

There are no indications that Mr. Kokesh has ever maintained any private sector employment, and unless otherwise proven, it might be assumed that his ‘work’ with the IVAW was financed through contributions to that organization, finances that often originated in leftist organizations such as MoveOn.org. Other than an undergraduate degree in Psychology, there are no indications that Mr. Kokesh has achieved any academic standing that might, given his young age and his otherwise lack of general accomplishments, recommend him for serious consideration for Congress.

There are numbers of incidents in Mr. Kokesh’s personal life that suggest that he employs poor judgment, and that he has trouble coping with stress. Examples of his poor judgment include the following: he smuggled a gun home from Iraq, and then was apprehended when he bought it onto a college campus; he has incited protestors to engage in violent actions against military recruiting stations, and; he incited unrest on a college campus by hanging racist poster around the campus, and signed the posters as being a member of the college conservative Republican organization.

Given the above, it is our position that Mr. Kokesh is in no way qualified to represent the Republican Party in Congress. In fact, if his history is any indicator of his future performance, it is most likely that he will behave in a manner that is antithetical to the positions and values of the Republican Party. In our view, a Kokesh candidacy will at best, precipitate much conflict within the Republican Party, and, at worst, invite derision from outside of the party.

Like you, we are interested in maintaining the integrity of the Republican Party. We understand that this is a time when the party leadership is striving to reconcile disparate ideas within the party, and to clarify its unified voice. A Kokesh candidacy would be completely at odds with those strivings and ideals.

Each year I try to find a phrase I can label the #1 oxymoron of

that year. Even though it is easrly, I feel assured that my choice forthe oxymoron of the year 2010 absolutely must be:

"integrity of the Republican Party"

Always remember:

You guys need to check it out

It has been pretty hot and heavy over there. Some clowns who don't have anything in their vocabulary except four-letter words and stupid pictures spouting off with nothing substantial behind it. Someone posted a picture of someone who was supposed to be Adam but there was no way it was.

Check it out and get in the fray. I would love to know who this Suzanne is and what organization she is behind. She definitely is not a true Conservative.

I was a member of the 912 project for a whopping 1 1/2 days before getting banned! LOL The moderator didn't like me fighting back agaisnt this Suzanne Wolf, who is also a member of the Patrotic Resistance.

I was also banned from Patriotic Resistance as well. They actually have come along way, but didn't like me promoting Alex Jones and poo pooing Faux News.

Hey Dpers

Look how good it worked at CPAC
The Largest group on beck's 912 site should be Ron Paul

It's very telling

how the neocons support the troops when they are following orders killing brown people, but when they come home and speak out they call them traitors. I bet anything Hannity & Beck's kids won't be serving in the military.

Bump and does anyone know how

Bump and does anyone know how to find out who the owner of this blog or website is? This Suzanne Wolf who appears attacking on the 912 Project under the Thread of A Sheep in Wolves clothing is quite something. I could not verify her listed city and state on the 912 project or Patriotic Resistance website.

The DP is proof that the grassroots support for Ron Paul and his peaceful message of individual liberty is large, real, and not going away!

Ron Paul group

There is now a Ron Paul group on that site.

There are a few posts defending Adam now

There are a few posts defending Adam now, but there could be more.

I made it through the gauntlet

to be subsribed to that horrible site. Replied to the thread in the first link, but the second one is hopeless. Just NeoCons gunning for any cadidate who doesn't salute and goose step with the military brass.

LOL

We are now in the "then they fight you" stage.

It is so easy to see our enemies now.

Next stage, We Win!

People like that are just evil and I pray that Adam will be vindicated.

Oh, they are describing themselves again?

"A Traitor in Sheep's clothing trying to deceive the Voters"
Sounds exactly like what Beck and his group are doing.

Ya know, it's been a long time Communist ploy to accuse others of what they are doing themselves.
I think that this is an example of that.

Start the mantra, "Glenn Beck is a Progressive".
That oughtta start their pants on fire.

There's an old adage, "It's hard to attack when you're constantly on the defensive".
Put them there.

Its a good place to wake the Glenn Beck crowd out of their neocon slumber.

Many are awake, but many are still groggy and need the full wake up call.

reedr3v's picture

they are very discriminatory, not a

freedom site; first you have to fill out a questionnaire stating if you agree with their "principles." then you have to tell them something about yourself, then they decide if you're worthy to join their NeoCon band. We'll see if they accept me.
