Fox News and Judge Andrew Napolitano Shill for IVAW Traitor Adam Kokesh - Again
Thursday, March 4, 2010 | Kristinn

Posted on 03/04/2010 11:45:52 AM PST by kristinn

Fox News and Judge Andrew Napolitano are shamelessly promoting a wartime traitor, Adam Kokesh of the communist front group Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW), as a Republican candidate for Congress.

For the second time in recent months, Judge Napolitano has had Kokesh on his Fox News show, Freedom Watch, for a softball interview about Kokesh's Republican primary bid to represent New Mexico's 3rd District in the U.S. House of Representatives.

There is no mention by Napolitano about Kokesh's involvement with terrorist supporting groups like IVAW and Code Pink, nor did Napolitano mention Kokesh's repeated disciplinary actions in the Marines that resulted in him being demoted from sergeant to corporal and from an honorable discharge to a general discharge.

Napolitano did not bring up Kokesh personally urging U.S. troops on a base in Germany to desert the military and lay down their arms.

In another era, Kokesh would have faced a firing squad or the hangman's noose for his actions in Germany. But we live in a more progressive era where traitors are heroes and heroes are the ones persecuted.

America's veterans and military families have come to expect such promotions of treasonous people by others in the media. Coming from Fox News, this is a deep betrayal.

Fox and Napolitano are either guilty of gross journalistic malpractice by not researching Kokesh's history, or they are willfully witholding that information from their viewers.

Given Fox's disgraceful history of promoting Code Pink, the latter is quite possible.

Kokesh on Napolitano's Freedom Watch March 1, 2010. Third screen down.


May, 2007, Adam Kokesh urges U.S. troops at a base in Anspach, Germany to quit the military: "If any of you should decide to leave the Army while in Germany and throw down your arms, the people of Ansbach will support you and do our best to provide you with aid, comfort, and sanctuary."

Kokesh has been endorsed by Ron Paul, of course.

Let me guess, Napolitano also didn’t bring up Kokesh’s putting up racist posters on a college campus that falsely claimed they were from a Conservative student group that Kokesh had no relation to.

You know, I really want to like the Judge, he is pretty rational on a lot of things and sound on economics, but then he bends over backwards to these neo-hippies.

Had someone been able to talk them into it we sure as hell don't want them in there anyway.

ummm- Nepolitano is great on Constitutional rights - but he IS a libertarian - supports R. Paul = too far out on the radical rim.

Beck still has some growing up to do...he's libertarian leaning too - but I think he needs to look at that a bit deeper.

In the meantime, he's providing an invaluable window behind the scenes of the radical usurpers of our country

WE need not to knee jerk blanket condemn, on one issue, those who are valuable to exposing the evil afoot in this country - it's a 'baby-bathwater' thing

Watched the interview at Freedom Watch. It was apparent that the Judge had no idea who he was talking to and not a clue concerning his background.

Is Iraq Veterans Against the War Executive Director Racist? You Be The Judge

Posted on Thursday, October 11, 2007 10:21:46 PM by Doctor Raoul

Earlier this week, a group of radical left wing students at George Washington University, led by Adam Kokesh as reported by the GW Hatchet
"Graduate student Adam Kokesh is the de-facto leader of the group. A veteran of the Iraq War and a member of Iraq Veterans Against the War... fraudulently concocted a flyer intended to smear the GWU Chapter of Young America's Foundation as racist.

Their main racist smear against YAF in their bogus flyer was the illustration of an Arab man in robes meant to be perceived as threatening.

Here's an illustration from an Adam Kokesh article on the Iraq Veterans Against the War website. It's a photo of someone (most likely Kokesh) as an Arab man in robes meant to be perceived as threatening.

Is the Executive Director of the Iraq Veterans Against the War a racist?

Is there any difference between how Adam Kokesh says a racist would view an Arab male and the way Adam Kokesh views an Arab male?

Compare and contrast and you be the judge.

Yep I have watched Fox this Am Shocked at the sudden leftie turn it has taken.
Even Megyn has take a stance against the seals being unjustly accused of “cruely” slapping a vicious murderer.

Even when the Congressmen told her of the AQ book that tells the terrorist if you get caught claim abuse.

I guess FOX wants to go the way of abccbsnbcmsnbccn etc.

“Even Megyn...”

It’s all just a show. Just enough to stop you from freaking out & realizing you have no representation.

Take a big jump to realize that & not turn back.

Never thought I would vote for a Democrat but if this guy got the GOP nomination where I live, I would.

Just take Ron Paul's advice from the last Presidential election and vote against the "Republican/Democrat duopoly". It seems this particular election is as good as any other to put his advice into practice. :->

I sure would like to hear from a supporter of his why they trust him to carry forward the values they claim he stands for, versus, say, just quitting when it gets to hard like he did in the Marines.

This sick piece probably cheered when Hasan gunned down all those soliders, too.

Fox News isn’t the conservative/right-leaning/fair minded news source every one touts them to be. Sure they give folks like Hannity and Beck shows, but they are top heavy with middle ground-too-scared-to-step-on-any-toes hosts.

It’s a shame because I think they are the outlet that can completely derail Obama...but they don’t have the sack to do it. As long as O’Reilly, Shep, Juan Williams and all the talking heads stay there, we’ll see more of this.

They claim to be Republicans of the “Taft” mold- funny considering that Taft was secretary of war under Roosevelt when he oversaw the invasion of Cuba (to establish an orderly government) in the early 1900s and was appointed temporary Governor of Cuba (I believe they would label that interventionism now).

This is discouraging news kristinn.

Referring back to WOBBLY BOB's noteworthy comment from the Veterans For Congress:

  I’ll vote Conservative 1st,veteran 2nd.

I think it's great many Vets are running for office. But as you correctly said WOBBLY BOB, we need Conservative Vets.

Beck’s very chummy with the Judge, and his affinity for RuPaul is the single biggest strike against him in my book (and I’m a big Beck fan).

I don’t understand the logic of these “libertarians”. You leave the Republican Party because it’s been co-opted by progressives (it has been to a large extent), and you leave it for a fringe party that’s been hijacked by truthers, antisemites, pot cultists and anti-military zealots... a party that even if you managed to wrestle it back from the leftist infiltrators, couldn’t make an electoral impact on its best day. Leave the party worth saving for one that isn’t. Brilliant.

Cut-Off-Your-Nose-to-Spite-Your-Face Libertarians. Idiocy in its purest form.

Andrew Napolitano

"..Politics

Napolitano describes himself as a pro-life libertarian. He splits his time living in Manhattan and Sussex County, New Jersey.

Professor Murray Sabrin and blogger Lew Rockwell mentioned Napolitano as a possible vice presidential running mate for Republican Ron Paul during the 2008 presidential election.[1].."
