Locked and loaded protest on D.C.?? Sounds like BAD idea ...

PostBy: SMITTY On: Tue May 21, 2013 8:52 am

Been hearing about this guy, Adam Kokesh , and his plans for an ARMED protest in D.C.. While I admire his fortitude, this sounds like a REALLY BAD idea. No good will come from this. Now is not the time, in my opinion. When the government starts kicking our doors in, maybe I'll change my mind. But for right now, this sounds REALLY f'ing dumb.

.... Also, aside from creating a highly volatile situation with the police, the optics of a hundred or so gun owners breaking guns laws in a major American city will most certainly ​hurt the pro-Second Amendment camp.

There could be no better gift to hand to gun rights opponents than to have a bunch of people get arrested for breaking established (if really bad) gun laws or, worse, getting in a shootout with the cops,” Shaw writes. “This is not the type of representation we need in this debate

^^^ THIS.

I have also read a while back that this guy has some ties to the left. That would explain alot if that's true. Michelle Malkin has the dirt on that in this Blaze story: http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/05 ... ngton-d-c/

Good call SMITTY. When some idiot comes up with something so abrasive TO the cause, you can bet money he's nothing but an instigator. Problem is, I'm fearful as to how many blind fanatics might show up for something like this and do nothing but set this 2nd amendment confrontation back to square 1. I've often said that fanaticism on either side is a real negative thing. :(

Not to worry, the police have already arrested him and I expect they'll find a way to hold him until after the planned event.

That's the last thing we need in this country is a bunch of rabble rouser's going against the government. :?

Jeff, I know you fight it tooth & nail, but there's a difference between rabble rousers & fanatical ass-holes that do more harm then good:(

I like that line in the Patriotupdate.com article:

Stupidity is not the private domain of the left.


WELL SAID.

Felony assault? That's a good one. With all the video being taken that day, I'm sure that will be easy to prove.

I predict the charges will be dropped right after the planned gun event.

Wake up folks...

This is thug goonery by our police plain and simple. He did nothing to resist arrest, and he assuredly assaulted no one. Things like this used to happen only in places like the Soviet Union. Call him stupid if you like, and if it makes you feel good and intelligent, but he is a political prisoner. Welcome to Amerika.

My not having been there leaves my opinion on the actual arrest & what ever happened during the process nothing more then speculative bull *censored* on my part. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

There are multiple videos out there from various angles.

If one were so inclined, you could almost feel like you were there. :)

My point is---feelin like & actually being are two completely different things. I think we could all agree that videos can be posted to show whatever the person taking them wants us to see---just saying

The obvious question now is: Why was he arrested in the first place?

If that's what's really happening, then this is certainly bad news. His ties to the left made me question all of that though. The left hates guns, and with their history of tactics it's not that far out of the realm of possibility that this event scheduled for the 4th was meant to "create" an excuse for the government to really crack down on the Second Amendment. With all the scandals (that we KNOW of ...) coming out of this administration, I certainly wouldn't put it past them. They let 4 of their own die, with ZERO remorse and didn't even bat an eyelash. Pretty scary how soulless they are ....

I think it would be hard to make the case that Adam Kokesh is anti gun.

I first became aware of him back in 2008 at the Freedom March in D.C.

I was standing about 10 feet from him when he made this speech. Awesome day! :)
