U.S. Park Police and Washington, D.C. Police are investigating a video posted by gun rights activist Adam Kokesh in which the former U.S. Marine and Iraq veteran is seen loading shells into a pump-action shotgun and promising a “final American Revolution” by “next Independence Day.” According to Talking Points Memo, the video was posted Thursday to Kokesh’s YouTube account.
The clip, called “Open Carry March on DC a Success,” showed Kokesh standing in a black “Goodfellas”-style jacket and no tie in what appears to be Washington, D.C.’s Freedom Plaza, where carrying a loaded firearm is illegal.
“We will not be silent,” Kokesh said, looking slightly wild-eyed and punctuating each phrase with another shell loaded into the gun’s chamber.
“We will not obey. We will not allow our government to destroy our humanity. We are the final American Revolution. See you next Independence Day.”
Kokesh, a Ron Paul 2012 supporter and 9/11 “truther” was forced to call off a planned armed march on Washington in May of this year. He and other gun rights activists planned to march across the Memorial Bridge from Virginia into Washington, D.C. carrying weapons that are against the law in the nation’s capitol.
You guys remember this Kokesh guy right?
He was the moron who encouraged his radio listeners to march on Washington D.C. with loaded rifles slung across their shoulders, and then later backed out when he realized he might actually get shot or arrested.
Just WHO in the hell would be impressed with that dramatic cocking of the shotgun? It looks like somebody has been watching too many Steven Seagal movies.
I am guessing that if he has any following at all it is made up of twelve year old boys.
I know we make a lot of jokes about gun nuts and their penis size, but I swear I have never seen a more obvious case of over compensation in my life.
