I'm just asking 'cause I just saw some people on YT at Jefferson Memorial getting arrested,bodyslammed & cuffed . Somehow this Kokesh person is involved & he's a Iraqi war vet.
Your input & opinions please!
Most will say they don’t like him.
The gal who got arrested is a Code Pink foolidiot. Medea Somethingorother. Anyway, that’s what I read.
Kokesh is a first class anti-war kook. Google him and you’ll see that he is nothing but a smear merchant.
He is bad news. Basically working for the other side.
Didn’t he run for Congress and now running again and endorsed by Ron Paul?
Kokesh has a program on the Russian equivalent of al-Jazeera, called RT (Russia Today). He’s paid by Russia.
No sympathy from me for anybody doing “mob flashes” in DC. You need a permit to hold up signs at a corner to protest anti-war kooks. Why should they be able to do as they please?
Here’s a fair representation, by a Geo. Wash. student paper: http://media.www.gwhatchet.com/media/storage/paper332/news/2007/04/30/News/Fighting.On.The.Battlefield.Of.Policy.Graduate.Student.Attacks.Bushs.Iraq.War.St-2888004.shtml
An anti-war Code Pinko traitor punk. Besides bailing on his fellow soldiers in Iraq, one of his other claims to fame is being busted for posting fake anti-Muslim posters to try to smear people on the right.
Not only that, he was a troll here for a while back when he was on trial seeking sympathy. Instead, he was reamed a new one by all the old soldiers and Marines here. It was an epic zot.
Pinging RaceBannon, he knows a lot about this punk.
Yes. Even nutjobs are embarrassed by Koresh.
Koresh? Must have been a freudian slip.
Some more info. He is now a paid shill of Putin on one of his propaganda outlets.
All you could possibly want to know is at thisainthell.us.
Close enough for government work.
Adam Kokesh was a leader in the Iraq Veterans Against War, a group formed with the assistance of the old Vietnam Veterans Against the War and other leftist groups to drum up anti-US "war crimes" agitprop. That didn't work out well, so Kokesh pretended he was really some sort of libertarian Republican and ran for a Congressional seat in New Mexico. This irritated a number of veterans, including former SEAL Larry Bailey, who was at the time the leader of the group Gathering of Eagles. Larry penned an open letter that nailed Kokesh to the wall, and he was wiped out in the GOP primary.
Little has been heard from him since.
I recall he was involved with anti-war protests with Code Pink that involved literally spitting at some Gold Star moms (moms who lost children in the war). I cannot imagine what it would take to stoop that low, and yet Kokesh was endorsed by Ron Paul and I have yet to hear whether Paul has repudiated his association with Kokesh. Judge Napolitano was also a big Kokesh fan, and I am unaware of any change there either. It was the (L)ibertarian group-think that holds these associations together, I believe. And it can be ever so strong. I have been treated badly by liberals in some contexts, but the single most vitriolic thrashing I ever got was for complaining about a FB group called Liberty Candidates (I think - its late and I’m flying on naught but fumes) that had a money bomb thing that included Kokesh. You wouldn’t believe the incivility to which I was subjected for suggesting they could do better than hangin out with Kokesh. Amazing.
