A march on Washington with loaded rifles
Salon ^ | May 3, 2013 | Alex Seitz-Wald

Libertarian activist and radio host Adam Kokesh is hoping to get 1,000 people to march on Washington on July 4 — armed with loaded rifles. The plan, launched with a Facebook group today, is to gather on the Virginia side of the Potomac, where gun laws are lax, and then march across the bridge with loaded rifles slung over their shoulders into the District, where openly carrying weapons is generally prohibited.

“This will be a non-violent event,” the Facebook group warns, “unless the government chooses to make it violent.” Already, over 200 people have said they’ll attend the march. Here’s the message:

On the morning of July 4, 2013, Independence Day, we will muster at the National Cemetery & at noon we will step off to march across the Memorial Bridge, down Independence Avenue, around the Capitol, the Supreme Court, & the White House, then peacefully return to Virginia across the Memorial Bridge. This is an act of civil disobedience, not a permitted event. We will march with rifles loaded & slung across our backs to put the government on notice that we will not be intimidated & cower in submission to tyranny. We are marching to mark the high water mark of government & to turn the tide. This will be a non-violent event, unless the government chooses to make it violent. Should we meet physical resistance, we will peacefully turn back, having shown that free people are not welcome in Washington, & returning with the resolve that the politicians, bureaucrats, & enforcers of the federal government will not be welcome in the land of the free.

Kokesh is a former Marine who was discharged in 2007 after violating the military’s code against engaging in political activity while in uniform. Kokesh was highly active in the antiwar movement....

If we ever do this for real, it won't be merely 1,000 people and we won't turn back. Sounds like Mr. Kokesh is a Lefty trying to give Barry and Eric a present on a silver platter to me.

Kokesh is a traitor punk and we should avoid any antics he plans.

Hitler infiltrated both the communists and the Nazis at the orders of his superiors in the German Army, if I recall my history correctly. He had many Bolsheviks shot after a short “Soviet” revolution was crushed.

Sounds like this guy is trying his best to get a bunch of people arrested or shot as they muster up! Just fuel for zero’s gun grabbing agenda.

The biggest threat would be DC's own homegrown irregular militia ~ they shoot white people for fun.

Second would be the fellows guarding the air defense missile batteries ~ not going to talk about where they are at the moment, but you cross any bridge from Virginia into DC you'll be real close to one, and you don't want to do that.

The Feds will just close the bridge. LOL Sounds like they’ve been advised by Barack 0bama; They’ve tipped off the enemy by announcing their plans in advance.

Kokesh was highly active in the antiwar movement after serving in Iraq, participating in numerous protests and getting arrested on occasion.

Salon magazine dabbling in false-flag agitprop. "Let's you and he fight." Sorry, folks, if this one really does go hot the proggies at Salon will be participants, not spectators.

This sounds staged to frame the “bitter clingers” crowd as hostile law breakers.

If I'm going to converse with a turd blossom, I'd rather go outside and ask the droppings of my half Chihuahua/half Jack Russell (known as a JackChi) Apollo.

My 2 cents: that many loaded weapons all in one crowded place would be an open invitation for a deliberate provocation by the “gun-grabbers” or pro-dictatorship forces (or at least unfortunate accidents). I’d suggest leaving the bullets OUT of the rifles.
