Probably pulled him in to give him his next assignment.

“Okay, Adam, your next protest will be here, and here’s your script...”

The WaPost comment section is mostly full of trolls, but one lucid poster mentioned that Kokesh might be challenging the DC government and Park Police over the law that allows loaded firearms in national parks.

So, it's OK that he's a political prisoner? This doesn't trouble you because you don't like some of his opinions?

Kokesh is a lying nutcase leftie code pinko agent provocateur. Read up on him for 10 minutes and you know exactly what the little turd is. A self centered little idiot too.

I don’t give a crap about him one way or the other. He works for the other side anyway. His whole “march on DC” was to be an agent provocateur, in cahoots with leftists schmucks.

My “don’t give a damn” meter on Kokesh is at 110%.

The only trouble his “march” was trying to cause was to get names for the gov but fortunately none or few were tricked by his stupid theatrical ploy. He’s also in it for himself and getting his precious name in lights.

I have no sympathy for him whatsoever.

Do some reading about him. He’s hung out with Code Pinko and other leftist commie pukes. He’s a raving nutcase lefto/”libertarian”/liar/self promoter/agent provocateur.

Read for 10 minutes or less and you’ll know everything you need to know.

So, I guess if we don't like someone, the SWAT team + helicopters should storm his neighborhood and throw him in federal prison on trumped up charges. After all, he's not one of US.

Why not just drone him?

He wants to poke a hornet’s nest hoping to see his name in lights, and wanted to get a whole lot of other people on board so the fedgov could get their names, and I’m supposed to feel sorry for him?

Has nothing to do with “us”. Has everything to do with he got precisely what he wanted - he was determined to get arrested, get his name on the news, and he got what he wanted! You want me to cry for him?

My comments about the out of control tyrannical fedgov are all over FR so you can forget about thinking I’m a Big Nanny State fan.

He’s not a conservative, he’s not a constitutionalist, he’s not sane, he’s not truthful, and he’s in it for himself alone, and his ideology and agenda suck.

End of story.

Randy Weaver wasn’t a jerk, I know the history. Koresh was a jerk apparently boinking at least one 13 yr old girl but if they had evidence they should have (and could have) arrested him. Of course what the gov did was a terrible crime. But comparing Kokesh’s arrest which he arranged himself for publicity it sheer idiocy on your part.

You need to learn to thing rationally. Until you do, you are very boring.

About Kokesh? Let him get donations for a lawyer, he’s probably got the begging bowl out already.

As far as the rest of us who are not raving nutter agent provocateurs, we should learn from what they’re doing in Egypt.

Possibly. There's even been some suggestion that he didn't have (let alone load) the shotgun in Freedom Plaza, but used cheap blue-screen video-editing software to make it appear that he did.

But even so, him having a stash of 'shrooms changes things a bit. Really dumb idea for someone who is poking a bear with a sharp stick. His roommate apparently said that they were expecting to get raided.

I’ve got more or less the same situation.

Just read that Kokesh had dope type mushrooms in his residence. Surprise, surprise! /NOT

Do you know that to be a fact or is that just a guess?

I don,t know anything about him my self but the liberal media has made every one from Goldwater to Palin look like a nut case.

I also thought the guy in charge of the Waco compound was a nut but he gave the Government no reason to murder him and his group.

The second amendment does not exclude nut cases.

When Kokesh first announced his big gun totin’ march on deecee inviting others to join him, I read links posted on the threads. Took me a while to read up but it was clear he is what I said he is. Do your homework and then you’ll know the truth about him. It wasn’t the liberal msm I read, either, I don’t sully my mind with that crap. If you want to know the truth, you have to do your research or read what other people have found. Do a search using Kokesh’ name on FR and see the other articles and the links people posted. There were many different sources, none of them liberal msm junk.

He’s a raving nutter agent provocateur associated with communist organizations and ultra leftist crap like Code Pink.

From the WaPo link above, so they knew they would get “raided” and kept the mushrooms around. Total nutcases.


and took him into custody on a charge of being in possession of hallucinogenic mushrooms while also having a gun, authorities said.

“We were expecting this. We were expecting the government to raid our house,” Darrell Young, Kokesh’s roommate...


I did a little search just now out of curiosity, since he’s a decent looking fellow and not old and he lives with a man. He’s totally pro-homo agenda and has a youtube titles “I could be gay”

Ah, just funnin’ with you.

It would be interesting if quilting was a hobby of his.

Under the influence of mushrooms, he’d probably make interesting quilts. With his “room mate”.

You disgust me.

You’re just as much a bigot as you think Weaver is.

The fact is that Weaver isn’t a bigot, he just has some views that I don’t share. He’s an honorable, and generous man.

I’m not saying you aren’t, but I’ve never heard of him calling you a jerk.

I can only assume that you are one or more of the below:

1. Very, very young and just graduated from off color comic books/computer games. Or maybe not graduated.

2. Smoke weed and/or eat (or whatever they do with) mushrooms, just like your hero Kokesh.

3. Are a libertarian who believes in a fantasy utopia that appeals to numbers 1 and 2 - a fantasy world where all vice is legal, fine and dandy and all the Evil Bigots who don’t like the homo agenda are dead and/or imprisoned. Funny thing about utopias - any that managed to get implemented all result directly in Hell on earth.
