Skip to comments.Adam Kokesh: An anti-war smear merchant in “Republican” clothing
Posted on 03/11/2010 9:55:02 AM PST by mnehring
Before there was a nationwide, grass-roots Tea Party movement, there was another nationwide, grass-roots movement that brought thousands of Americans to Washington, D.C. They called themselves the Gathering of Eagles. I covered two massive, GoE rallies against the Soros-funded, anti-war Left in March 2007 and September 2007. GOE activists continue to expose the transnational progressives, anti-military bullies, and phonies who operate under the peace banner.
One of the groups that GOE dogged was Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) whose members have included bomb-threat bullies and death-threat nutballs who threatened to assassinate me, fake Army vet Jesse MacBeth, and another prominent member who smeared the Young Americas Foundation by faking an anti-Muslim hate flyer and smeared David Horowitz with similar race-card playing flyers, then weaseled out of the attacks by claiming they were satire.
The last two incidents involved an IVAW member named Adam Kokesh. He marched in uniform in mock patrols for the anti-war movement, paraded around holding an upside-down American flag (see Jonn Lilyea for more), was arrested for defacing signs, and traveled to Germany to urge soldiers to abandon their posts and seek aid and comfort with his anti-war minions.
Kokesh, believe it or not, is now running as a Republican candidate for Congress in New Mexico. And, believe it or not, he is getting positive exposure on at least one Fox News show. He has the backing of Ron Paul, the Republican Liberty Caucus, and the 9/12 Project.
The New Mexico Republican Party has its head in the sand. If you have friends and family in New Mexico, make sure they know who the real Adam Kokesh is.
He is an anti-war smear merchant in GOP clothing. Spread the word.
This is weird.
I was trying to post this same story from MM site.
Was having trouble, so I quit and reopened
and here was this post.
Mainly wanted to keep this vermin on our front page news and ask about the dishonorable discharge mentioned somewhere?
Post often, since the lamestreet media seem to pass on some stories.
I’d like to hear what the Ron Paulbots have to say about this. He’s their candidate. Do they approve of having a candidate like this? Their hero Ron Paul does...
ANSWER was founded by Workers World Party and former VP under LBJ, Ramsey Clark's International Action Center. ANSWER is now officially under the control of Party For Socialism and Liberation, although the PSL leadership are all former WWP leaders. WWP openly states that they are members of the international communist movement. Their latest "peace" group is called "Troops Out Now".
From Workers World Party:
"Dear Comrade Kim Jong Il...
With his leadership [Kim Il Sung], the Korean people defeated the Japanese colonial occupation and soon after brought about the first defeat of the U.S. imperialist military machine. ...
Workers World Party values our close, comradely relations with the Workers Party of Korea very highly. We are proud to have known Kim Il Sung as a great leader and a comrade in the international communist movement. ..."
With comradely solidarity, Sam Marcy Chairperson, Workers World Party" (1994):

Note: the page (on the Workers World Party website) with this photo has recently been removed.
But here's other evidence of his speaking at the event:
"Among the many speakers were elected representativesU.S. Rep. Charles Rangel and New York City Council members Charles Barron and Margarita Lopezwho have bucked their party to come out against the war. Barron has also introduced a Troops Out Now resolution in the City Council."--Workers World Party
Workers World Party: From Harlem to mayors mansion, marchers say, ''Bring the troops home now!'
It’s still early in the day for the avg. paulbot...

Code Pink 'Bundles' for Barack, 4/14/2008
"The co-founder of the radical anti-war group Code Pink [Jodie Evans] has bundled more than $50,000 for Sen. Barack Obamas presidential campaign, and pro-troops groups are demanding that he return the money."
Code Pink's Jodie Evans embraces Jane Fonda
New Mexico Ping.
A hideous traitor whatever his current label
I’ve noticed that his signs around town are still not cleaned up . . . what an eyesore.
PLEASE PING THE NEW MEXICO FREEPERS WITH THIS

Kokesh or Paul?
I've not seen any Kokesh signs. Isn't our primary in June? Or is this from the 2008 election?
He was just on the ballot in San Juan County a week or so ago.
Kokesh was just on our ballot a week or so ago.
Was that for a local election? I don't remember seeing him on the ballot for anything here.
Here being Rio Rancho in Sandoval County.
I thought it was for congresscritter rep for this region/district.
will ask the GOP lady when she comes for her class.
Kokesh is running for rep as the Gop Candidate—worse than the current DIMRAT incumbant, evidently.
