Why Adam Kokesh is DisingenuousSubmitted by radiofriendly on Fri, 09/21/2012 - 21:22
UPDATE: In a recent video, Adam Kokesh is expressing 'outrage' (and repeating the angle from Reason.com) at a recent comment made by Rand Paul at a Republican dinner in Iowa.
"I’m not advocating everyone go out and run around with no clothes on and smoke pot."
Adam claims that this is an insult to all libertarians. Adam, the same man who put out a video entitled: Smoking DMT is libertarian and, at least, 4 other videos showing himself engaging in illegal drug use.
You have to ask yourself, are Adam Kokesh and his followers even likely voters in a Republican primary? This has been going on for a long time and the whole line of attack seems to be based on bad sources. See: http://www.dailypaul.com/285658/rand-paul-did-not-say-that
(9/2012) Hear me out on this. Here is why Adam Kokesh is disingenuous. Adam has been on a rampage lately attacking the defunked Ron Paul campaign staff and other organizations like Campaign for Liberty and YAL.
No doubt, there are criticisms to make, but Adam has some very clear ulterior motives. I'd like you to take note of his comments at the 5:58 minute mark in his recent video: (Warning, filled with profanity) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lUNVIXrB6dw
Among other things, he opposes "making phone calls to the congressional switchboard to lobby your representatives to be 'good little oppressors.'"
Now, I get it, and it's mildly funny, but Adam is a pure anarchist at heart and most of us are not. That doesn't mean that I want to silence his voice or that we should never listen to Adam's reasoning, (I enjoyed his recent debate with the Amazing Atheist.) but it does mean that I recognize that he has an agenda that is contrary to most of the work of Dr. Paul. Auditing the Fed and Ending Foreign Aid are big projects that many organizations are working on right now. I say it's a shame for Adam to use his rhetorical skills to attempt to tear down the hard work of Ron Paul on these projects.
