Washington Post ^ | Thursday, May 30, 2013 4:06 PM | Peter Hermann

The activist who threatened to lead an armed march on Washington July 4 has canceled the event but is urging people to converge on the 50 state capitals to protest gun regulations, according to a recent appearance on an Internet talk show.

“Please don’t come to Washington, D.C.,” Adam Kokesh, an Iraq war veteran, urged in an interview on the Pete Santilli Show. “Appeal on a state level. We shouldn’t be begging the government to change. We should be hoping they respect our rights.”

In the interview, which was first reported by the Media Matters web site, Kokesh said a friend is coordinating the state protests and it was unclear whether people are being urged to come armed. …

Michiganders are free to go to our state capitol armed anyway.

Democrat panties get pretty wadded up over it but that's just icing on the cake.

The CIA would call him an Agent Provocateur.

You’re right. It was a set-up, just begging for an “incident” to happen for the anti-2nd Amendment crowd.

False flag fail.

I suggested Agent Provocateur, but I think False Flag is a better description.

If it was a false flag and canceled, that means the gov’t isn’t so sure they’d win.. Yet.

"He’s an Obama plant". The CIA would call him an Agent Provocateur.

Correct to both. Do a keyword search on Kokesh to view the warnings about this person.

The city of DC has their own laws as all cities do. I’m not going to go out of my way to violate them and I’m certainly not interested in moving there to change them.

They can wallow in their own mess.

Great pics. That would be a really bad, bad place to wrap yourself in a bed sheet and yell “Allahu Akbar” at the top of your lungs. Bet you wouldn’t get a chance to say it twice.

Given this guy’s background, it was inevitable. Nobody is going to back a false flag plant.

I kinda like the alliteration aspect with the word “fail” too.

The other term makes me think of a certain album by Foreigner . . .

Kokesh aside (yeah, we all know he’s a loose cannon), that Americans of any political stripe should fear exercising their Constitutional Rights in DC is a disgrace.

I doubt that was in play here.

Should a legitimate organizer undertake this, it would materialize.

Kokesh is a 9-11 truther and peacenik wackjob. No conservative should be taking anything this guy has to say seriously. I Kokesh he has some support from the paultard/Infowars types, but that’s about it.

Those three armed Israelis are giving a bad case of the heebie-jeebies to that muzzie-looking character at the extreme left of the photo.

You march in DC with a weapon you are being a pawn in the governments hands.

Yes, Heaven forbid Americans should exercise a Constitutional Right in Washington DC, when the Government supposedly constrained by the same Constitution "outlaws" such Right.

Be good sheeple and stay home, watch some American Idol and forget about those faded words scrolled on parchment buried away in a vault.

“....Be good sheeple and stay home, watch some American Idol and forget about those faded words scrolled on parchment buried away in a vault.”
*****************************************************************
If folks who show good judgment and stay away from idiotic agent provocateurs such as Kokesh are "sheeple" then I hope these good FReepers continue to be “sheeple”. These “sheeple” can then continue the long slog of successfully reacquiring our full 2nd amendment rights using tactics and strategies that are based upon good judgment and move us forward instead of potentially setting up back. By the way, I'm proudly one of these "sheeple".
