Adam Kokesh - A Reply to the Naysayers

To all the naysayers ...

If “the enemy” is running the government does it really matter what Kokesh does? If the intent is to disarm, won’t they do it anyway?

Don’t we need some galvanizing moment to awaken the sleeping masses and at least try and fight for our country? Wouldn’t an outright gun ban be the best thing for the pro constitution faction? Would that not cause perhaps millions to stop talking and start acting?

Have we not sat here doing nothing while every action of our government attempt to create a legal justification for enslaving us? Are you afraid that this battle for our nation might not be won with a pen and that we may need to actually get our from behind our computer and do something?

Do you expect us to be so silly as to judge Kokesh by some label (jew) and not his actions? I see one man doing something I imagine he thinks could trigger a wider awakening and putting his ass on the line and another simply throwing shit at him while asking we do nothing because the evil people running the country might do some evil to us if we try and stop them.

Thanks to the Hill Hermit

Boiling frog as the doc would

The problem

is things are not so black and white between liberty and tyranny for us Americans. This isn't China.

Everyone that reads this site has a heightened knowledge of how far toward tyranny we're leaning, for example, the TSA, non-violent drug use sentences, economic tyranny of being forced to use unconstitutional devaluing dollars as legal tender, etc.

Unfortunately we're now in the minority of the country's population even though our numbers are growing.

I agree there needs to be some galvanizing thing, but I think it can be a variety of things. A gun ban would be one, because that's crossing an unforgivable line. You say nothing is being done, but we did get the recent anti-gun rights laws defeated to Obama's dismay. I think the key event waking everyone up will be a dollar crash. Once that happens we can no longer afford to maintain our empire, or meet all the entitlement promises the government has made. Everyone will see the Constitution was right about gold and silver after all.

Have to disagree

"I think the key event waking everyone up will be a dollar crash. Once that happens we can no longer afford to maintain our empire, or meet all the entitlement promises the government has made. Everyone will see the Constitution was right about gold and silver after all."

I wish that were true but a more likely scenario will be that the masses being woefully ignorant of the Constitution will accept what ever new scheme they are offered to "Save" them from the dire straights so many will be in when it collapses...

I don't

think so.

I think you're underestimating how many people are preparing to use gold and silver. Look how many states, like Utah for example, that passed laws, or are in the process, to recognize gold and silver as legal tender for trade.

The govt. can't just come up with some new currency like magic. It doesn't work like that, just ask Argentina.

People will start trading gold/silver again, just watch, and many will also trade cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, which no government can stop.

agreed

One look at Craigslist shows that an increasing number of people are moving toward gold and silver...though not necessarily moving away from the FRN (gotta pay the bills, after all...).

There are even a few car dealerships in my area that now accept precious metals...including my brother/myself. :D

Well said!

Perhaps one of the biggest risks Adam is taking is putting his ass on the line and the cowards who whine about what he is doing will not step up to fight for freedom when the time comes. If he has any significant error in judgment it might be thinking he will get enough people to wake up and do the right thing!

My problem isn't that he's jewish, or a spitting image of Lenin, etc...but rather that he is 1. ex pysop officer, 2. worked for the Russian state, 3. seems to do whatever he can to be obnoxious while "representing" the liberty movement. (causing a scene at the Jefferson Memorial, smoking DMT, etc.

Alex Jones is

AJ, although usually full of it, serves a useful purpose. He presents "counter myth" which creates bandwidth for the discovery of truth in the shadow of the government licensed corporate media.

Alex Jones$

Do you despitse capitalism ?

Making money by voluntary exchange is bad? No one is perfect certainly not AJ, but I am stunned at how many fail to realize the void that would be left without his radio show.

His documentaries, that I have always been able to see for FREE, is the only place I have seen the eugenics programs put into the public discourse. That's right 13 years ago he over reacted to something and I should ignore everything from him for evermore. That is a brilliant line of thinking. Oh wait that isn't thinking that is refusing to think.

He gives important guests a platform. INFORWARS does influence the dialogue now. This is great. So many just hate it I must say I am puzzled.

Liberty = Responsibility

Dude you are supposed to

Dude you are supposed to write Poe's law posts in purple now, didnt you get the memo?

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

Blah Ha Ha Ha!!!!!

OK

"or a spitting image of Lenin"

Ok that is really stupid and does not warrant a response

"1. ex pysop officer"

How did Marine Corps liasons between military operations and civilian population become a psyop?

"2. worked for the Russian state"

He did not work for the Russian state. He work for Russia Today which happens to be publicly funded by the government of the Russian Federation. That does not constitute being Vladimir Putin's lapdog. Let's face it... it was an opportunity and he took it.

"3. seems to do whatever he can to be obnoxious while "representing" the liberty movement. (causing a scene at the Jefferson Memorial, smoking DMT, etc."

I suppose some people thought that Rosa Parks and MLK were being obnoxious too while those same people professed to be for civil rights I'm sure. Maybe he is being mischaracterized. Maybe we could say that he is walking the line of legality to challenge the moral basis of his actions and to provoke a reaction from the establishment. And why does he have to be representing any movement? Are you LOOKING to collectivize a movement of individuals??? God I hope not.

"(Also the fact that phony "Arabs run Hollywood" and "George Soros promotes weed because he wants to "dumb the public down," and "Russia just launched nukes" (on NYE2k) Alex Jone$ is all gaga over him stinks as well."

So you are holding Adam accountable for Alex Jones. OK... got it. Makes perfect sense.

Couldn't have said it better

Adam is out there sticking his nut sack out for the rights of every liberty loving individual (whether he is liked or not). I don't understand how some people can have such a personal disdain for Adam that they are completely, unapologetically oblivious to the position he has put himself in for the benefit of others who favor liberty.

Its cool, has'nt changed my

Its cool, has'nt changed my opinion one iota, so far, as im sure it is the same with others, until kokesh shows himself to be this person they claim him to be, unquestionably, they can keep on talking to the brick wall on the subject of turning away from a fellow human being, who happens to be named adam kokesh

edit: just to note, to the original poster, up to you if you wanna change it or not, but i was expecting a "reply" FROM kokesh, going by that title, a little misleading......as im sure alot are actually waiting to hear from him

Many Thanks

Liberty Dictates ...

Liberty dictates we must be responsible for our actions and inactions - After re reading it and thinking about ( how things are in the news cycle all of us wanting to know what is going on with Mr. Kokesh ) the title was misleading thank you for ( tactfully ) showing me my error.
