EXCLUSIVE: Adam Kokesh Calls For Armed March on DC - VIDEO

EXCLUSIVE: Adam Kokesh Calls For Armed March on DC - VIDEO


May 6, 2013

Radio host and political activist Adam Kokesh joined Alex Jones on his nationally syndicated radio show Monday to discuss what his planned armed march aims to peacefully accomplish:

In a Facebook event post, Kokesh stated that “this is an act of civil disobedience,” but stresses, “This will be a non-violent event, unless the government chooses to make it violent.”

It's hard to believe anyone could be this stupid or is it that AK is what I have thought he
was all along - CO - and I don't mean "conscientious objector."

This is absolute worst event that has been been planned by a "supposed" libertarian, 2nd Amendment loving activist.

There are so many things wrong with this I don't know where to start - seriously - so I will just post one. This could start a civil war - a planned and advertised march to DC with loaded - or even UNloaded - firearms? It is beyond insane. it will just take one person to get to lose their head...

AK - you are an embarrassment and and more importantly - DANGEROUS to ANYONE who supports the 2nd Amendment.

Ron Paul is My President

One event is not going to do squat, even if national

If this is such a good idea then start a local one in your own town or city by organizing such an event, let it catch on first before going regional, then national.

Going straight to DC is a mistake and only plays into their hands.

They WILL respond to it like an invasion. Nice going Adam.


What about

that list of county sheriffs who pledged to protect 2A that was on here not too long ago? That could be a start.

I agree that bottom-up would be a better option, since there's a far smaller chance of it being infiltrated to make others look crazy/violent/et cetera. It'd also mean more individual control over the general direction of the event.

Plus, it'd be odd having a bunch of people who are (generally speaking) against centralization gathering in one place. ;)

Oh, the irony!

"Plus, it'd be odd having a bunch of people who are (generally speaking) against centralization gathering in one place. ;)"

Centralizing anything is usually the beginning of something bad!


Agreed. This fight is going

Agreed. This fight is going to have to be from the ground up. We need to focus on electing Constitutional Sheriffs and local representatives that have the balls to tell the Feds to fuck off. We need to stick to the framework of the Republic, that is their weakness because it is harder for them to influence from the top once we get a foothold. Look at CO an WA, the DEA basically has their hands tied because the local authorities wont let them raid peoples homes over Cannabis.

Going to DC with guns will only provide fodder for the media to have a field day demonizing "Anti-government racist gun nuts" and even provide an opportunity for agent provocateurs that others have mentioned.

That being said, I had a hard ass scout master growing up that was talking to one of the kids mom's once about the government. She mentioned that we should write a letter to Congress and he immediately replied "What? Fuck that- grab your guns and go to Washington!"

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.


One one hand, should an armed protest happen, the rest of the U.S. will see once and for all just what the thugs in DC think of the so-called freest people in the world, and no amount of media spin can change it IMO.

OTOH, it could lead to a LOT of needless bloodshed.

...though OTOH, it may prevent more bloodshed down the line. I mean, *something* has to give here. Leaving well-informed, often snarky comments on the internet and generally pointing out the obvious will only accomplish so much.

Still, why not organize a tax protest first? A *lot* of people could get behind that!

BUT, on the oth...oh, well it seems I'm fresh out of hands. I knew I shouldn't have gotten rid of that octopus...

I think

Adam is just testing the waters to see just how serious people are about a protest march to DC. Can you imagine if 100,0000+ did sign up?

Cyril's picture

If 100,000 would sign up

If 100,000 would sign up to show off their guns and pride of their 2A rights, that'd mean A MILLION would have signed up to just march and speak out loud using their 1A's.

I am still impatiently waiting for that day, People, before too late.

I posted several times on here on how important I think it is.

How do I find

How many have signed up?

Seriously. Don't get me wrong:

Seriously. Don't get me wrong:

I like Adam very much. Or I appreciate very much all his efforts to speak out your/our rights. And just like AJ, I could not care less about his flaws. We all have ours. But he cares. And AJ cares.

However, on this one, I find this hazardous. It's not just about the gov't. We ought to think also of all the potential mobs, liberal idiots who may find a great opportunity to provoke trouble.

Personally, I wish we could show up en masse and very loud exercising something even more powerful:

the first Amendment.

I wish we could be hundreds of thousands overwhelming the traffic, the cops, and shoppers by our mere SPEAKING OUT about what's going on.

The power of our word for liberty could punch the statists even harder than showing off metal as we're not afraid to exercise our 2nd A. rights, rightfully.

We could do, I think, more damage against the lie and the plunder by focusing on using our 1st, biggest weapon, before showing off our 2nd.

Just IMO.

This is just plain STUPID

Armed, not armed. Giving up if confronted, getting arrested. Having your "weapons" confiscated. Another point: What happens when agents provocateur start shooting at the police? I can see the MSM now calling for the confiscation of all Veterans guns across the nation.

WTH is Adam thinking (or not)?
BTW, I proudly marched on D.C. with my other vets - in a peaceful show of solidarity for fallen soldiers (many from suicide), and I would do that again. But this is lunacy, and I'm even more suspicious that ever of (thrown RP under the bus and endorse GJ) Kokesh.

"Government is the entertainment division of the military-industrial complex". - Frank Zappa

I say either THIS is our "image"...

...or...running Liberty candidates, and exposing the GOP's hostile contempt for us, Ron Paul, our founders original intent, and their very own historical platform espousing limited government+less regulation+less taxation+Judeo-Christian social values will be our image.

I want nothing to do with Christian-mocking ignoramuses who have never personally studied the faith & seminary training of our founders and framers that is clearly BEHIND our Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights.

This is emotion, this is anger, this communicates a THREAT of vengeance by "the movement"...vengeance is the Lord's, and He will deal with the civil magistrates who have openly violated His Law Order; who among us is communicating His STANDARDS of righteousness and authority over the civil magistrate? Is this idea of a Creator, and His Order of the family, the government, the church a message now?

This is how we got here...the breakdown of His order, open rebellion against His order...

No way Ron Paul or Rand Paul think this STUNT is wise, or helpful...when such energy and emotion and patriotic fervor could be channeled and employed by other "leaders" in the movement who want to help Liberty candidates TAKE seats in representative government.

The fool, the insane, has said in his heart...there is NO God! Consider well WHOM you align yourself with, for credibility's sake!

RonPaulSwede approves this message!

This is long overdue, this should have been done long time ago. If Adam can gather 100.000+ we are talking a serious business.
I don´t really understand why people are against this, the Goverment takes one right after another and people are scared something might happen? If you don´t do anything soon you will need a homeland security person to hold hands with when crossing the streets.

So you have

Some advice from a Johnny Cash




Not a good idea

I'm bothered by the emotional appeal Adam is making, and also by his anti-government rhetoric. Not just anti-our current government rhetoric, but the anti-all government rhetoric. To pull off a march like this, there has to be massive public support. I think there is arguably enough support out there from people who want to protect our 2A rights to consider doing a march like this. I don't, however, think there are many people out there willing to scrap government entirely. If I thought this march was a good idea, I would say keep it to the concept of protecting 2A rights.

As far as the emotional side of this, I'm bothered by Adam insinuating that those who have legitimate concerns about the event being co-opted and false flagged are cowards who don't want to do anything. We are just coming off Sandy Hook and Boston, which have stoked public opinion against gun ownership. If anything goes wrong with this march, this will seal the deal for govt. to start grabbing guns and have the public chant "USA, USA" as they do it.

There have been lots of marches on DC for lots of things, and the press spins them or underreports or doesn't report about them at all. How effective would a march on DC really be to sway public opinion, when the press is far from libertarian?

Something *does* need to be done to counteract the vilification of gun owners. I just don't think this is it, and it has the potential for go very wrong instead.

Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle. Mary, Our Mother, protect us under your mantle.

He said he will be coordinating with law enforcement

SO if that's the case, that's GREAT! Then I'm okay with it. And he said he will inspect all the guns to make sure they are not loaded. WATCH THE VIDEO. Ok, sounds ok!

Then How Will They Be Armed Pray Tell?

They are either armed or they are not...I heard him tell Alex Jones that they will be armed..

here's the FULL interview:


one should watch this following Lew Rockwell interview BEFORE watching the Kokesh segment. It's from the same day, preceding Adam's interview; it puts the discussion into a more complete context as AJ asks Kokesh to address very legitimate concerns that Lew raised:


Predictions in due Time...

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul

I think

that this is a good idea. Think of the Impact this would have and the statement this would make.

WE, the citizens of the United States of America, and the free peoples of the WORLD, have a GOD-GIVEN Right to Self-Defense. This PEACEFUL demonstration of Open-Carry will show that free citizens are responsible to make the choice of gun-ownership themselves. We do NOT need you to grant US any authority for OUR rights. You, The Federal Leviathan we call the United States Government, are the SERVENTS, and WE are the MASTERS.

Provocateurs be warned: You are more then welcome to participate, but KNOW that this is a PEACEFUL DEMONSTRATION. Look around you, before you attempt to incite violence. You will be surrounded by FREE and PEACEFUL citizens, who will not think twice about dropping your ass. You have been warned.

How to Handle POLICE STATE Encounters

Freedom Of Choice Is As American As Apple Pie !

Unlike VietNam and Korea this march is for volunteers only, noone is forced to march.

58,000 died in VietNam and most of them were DRAFTEES ! A draftee is someone who is conscripted {Forced} mostly against their will to become a soldier.

Ron Paul himself has said he would have been drafted into the army if he hadn't have joined the U.S. Air Force, during VietNam.

And why did those brave young men die in Korea and VietNam ?

Answer: They all took the mandatory military oath to protect the U.S. Constitution, the very foundation of our country, from ALL enemies foreign AND domestic.


“This will be a non-violent event

[REGARDLESS WHETHER] the government chooses to make it violent."

If you are going to do this, under no circumstance, NO CIRCUMSTANCE, are you to use your fire arms or fight back, not for ANY reason. Ingrain that into the heads of anyone willing to march with you that any reaction to any force used against them is not acceptable and not an option. Ensure that they know they are putting their life on the line by accepting to join this peaceful march. Make them swear or affirm they will not retaliate against any force or any instigation used against them. Make them sign peace pledges and contracts. Make them have no doubt in their mind that any use of force by them is unacceptable. If you are arrested you are arrested. If you are assaulted you are assaulted. Any injustices will be recorded, do not take justice or even self defense into your hands. If you are choosing to make a statement with this march, don't let that message be lost by falling into any trap.

In this way if someone in your march does act out you and everyone will know they are not part of your march. They are plants, agent provocateurs and a false flag. It will be screamed from the house tops. Do not use force even if it means your lives. Otherwise you will be set up and you will fail. Be careful. Be wise.

Adam, please don't get set up

Adam, please don't get set up bro...I've disagreed with you before, but I still love you as a former Marine. You've got guts, but you know how they work in this game of chess.

They are itching at the trigger to label you and every American who believes in the right to defend themselves as some kind of lunatic right winger.

If some kind of IED goes off during the march, who do you think they're going to blame it on?

An armed march on Washington sounds great on the surface, but if you're not super careful (videotape everything!) they're going to use it as an opportunity to take away our 1st Amendment rights next.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

I'd like to know where everyone's reasoning is..

This Aint going to happen. You guys really think in The District of Criminals err i mean Columbia where the Federal Reserve is located. They are going to let people march over that bridge with loaded semi auto's? SURE you Libertarians are all about peace and Ending The Fed, well let only you guys come in with Loaded Rifles. Everyone else will just have to be excluded. Anyone who's been to DC KNOWS that city is on Lock down.Case in point This march aint going to happen.

His name is Edward Snowden

What is Capitalism?

how about

Adam gets a digital audio clip of obummer's statement (that he refers to) and blast that through a bull horn. I would enjoy that.
