This, if nothing else, will be interesting to watch.
I posted a few weeks back about this armed march on Washington, D.C. that was planned by ‘good soldier’ and U.S. Iraq War vet, Adam Kokesh:
Internet radio host and former RT presenter Adam Kokesh is hoping to get 1,000 people to march on Washington, D.C. this coming July 4 – armed with loaded rifles. Their plan is to gather on the Virginia side of the Potomac, then march across the bridge with loaded rifles slung over their shoulders.
Some developments since then:
Adam Kokesh is cancelling his planned July 4 armed march on Washington, D.C., and instead calling for a march on all 50 state capitols with the goal of overthrowing the federal government.
Kokesh, a former host for Russian state-sponsored RT television who now hosts an internet radio show, told conspiracy theorist radio host Pete Santilli that it was time to “escalate our tactics” before cancelling the Washington march and urging supporters to march on their state capitol instead.
In a statement that paraphrases V’s ‘chat with the nation’ in the movie V for Vendetta, Kokesh called for “A new American revolution”, saying that it is:
“…long overdue. This revolution has been brewing in the hearts and minds of the people for many years, but this Independence Day, it shall take a new form as the American Revolutionary Army will march on each state capital to demand that the governors of these 50 states immediately initiate the process of an orderly dissolution of the federal government through secession and reclamation of federally held property. Should one whole year from this July 4th pass while the crimes of this government are allowed to continue, we may have passed the point at which non-violent revolution becomes impossible… we will see you on the front lines of freedom on July 4th, 2013 for this, The Final American Revolution.“
If you’ve listened to our SOTT Talk Radio show on 9/11, you’ll remember Pete Santilli as Dr. Judy Wood’s ‘handler’, who called in right as the show began in an apparent attempt to stir up shit.
On May 18th, Kokesh was arrested at a ‘legalize pot rally’ in Philadelphia, before being released after his felony charges were reduced to citations.
I guess there’s nothing like a bit of controversy to give your ‘movement’ some legs.
There has been a fairly transparent effort, especially since 9/11, to agitate those few Americans who see their government’s crimes into responding with violence. I’m all for seeing the toxic concentration of power in D.C. broken up, but I also know that the Feds will be just licking their chops at the prospect of shooting down any attempted armed takeover of State capitols.
