More about Adam KokeshSubmitted by richtrix on Thu, 06/30/2011 - 12:08
I wrote this as a comment on this article/video and some of the comments on this thread: http://trevorloudon.com/2011/06/adam-kokesh-paid-russian-age...
Thought it was maybe worth posting here. I'm sure I'll get some flack for it.
As much as it pains me I think the evidence is compelling. Think about who funded the anti war movement on the left in the 1960-70s. Now that movement has been castrated by and anti-war candidate who is now a pro-war president. The only viable anti-war party now lies in the Ron Paul movement. The Russian’s don’t like it at all that we are at their back door in nations they trade with frequently. Think about how the Russians have gone to bat for Iran among others. I like Adam. He even read an article I wrote on the air during his show. But here are the facts. His livelihood depends on the government. Not only that, a foreign government and not just a foreign government, but the Russian one. Home of the KGB and Pravda, the originators of social change through media and demoralization. He admits to this openly that he is an employee of the Russian government. Therefore, no matter what you think of him personally, his message really cannot be trusted and anything he does should be watched closely. Just stop and think for a moment the scope of the problem if he is a paid agent/agitator. His power within the liberty movement grows by the day. Most would never suspect he could some day betray us. What if one of the most popular and famous leaders of the liberty movement were to be agent sent in to defuse or distract the movement? Do you not think that this would be a worthy goal of those who seek to undo us? Think about Kokesh. His rise to fame has been meteoric in the movement. A congressional run, several public incidents involving his arrest, a quaint radioshow for less than a year and now a lucrative TV show. All within 3 years. Now his fame is approaching Ron Paul’s who has been around for 40 years practicing what he preaches. Peter Schiff is more famous, has a better record and he doesn't have his own TV show and he has had a radio show for years and years.
I have a friend who posted something on Kokesh’s FB page asking, quite innocently, some questions about all of this. His post got removed and he was BANNED from ever posting there again. He then made a fake facebook page and went back and posted another questioning article or statement and tried his best to be as innocent and just curious, not malicious, in the post. Once again, deleted and BANNED. So we can dance at the Jefferson Memorial but you cannot have free speech on Adam's FB page? Interesting indeed. I am not saying he should be made public enemy of our movement. I’m just saying consider not trusting him. You don’t know him, he has only a short public record of rhetoric and has been surprisingly successful in a very short time (not to mention he is funded by one of the largest Marxist regimes in the world, btw, yes Russians are still Marxists). Leave the jury in the chambers for a while. There is no harm in that. Make him earn your trust over a longer time scale, do not just hand it over blindly. There are bad folks out there who have conned intelligent people out of their entire life’s earnings because the thought never even crossed their mind that the con artist was not who he said he was.
