In the second hour, I discussed my article, Joel Skousen adds his voice to those questioning Adam Kokesh’s planned armed July 4th march on Washington.

Adam KokeshHere are some highlights from Joel Skousen’s May 10, 2013 World Affairs Brief on Adam Kokesh’s planned armed July 4th march on Washington, D.C. (emphasis mine):

There are smart ways to organize a demonstration at the nation’s capitol to gain public support against government tyranny and then there are moves that are really unwise. In my personal opinion, Adam Kokesh’s proposed armed march of several thousand volunteer protestors into Washington DC is not smart and potentially will get all future right wing demonstrations in favor of the Second Amendment banned as “prone to violence.”

I’ve never liked Adam Kokesh’s style—sitting before the mike in black tank top, shaved but bearded head, and always talking tough. It’s a militaristic style that attracts ex-military hot heads to the movement, and this latest gambit has that same uncareful style.

It’s not that simple. When you openly violate a law about weapons, the police have little choice but to intervene—and they will. To make it worse, in his interview with Alex Jones, Kokesh spoke dangerous language when he said, “This is an armed revolt against the American government.”

You just can’t go around saying things like that even if the right to revolution is guaranteed by the Declaration of Independence. It is a serious step not to be taken for “light or transient” reasons and must have wide public support backed by a long list of grievances. It’s easy enough for constitutional conservatives and libertarians to produce such a list of technical violations, but they are not easily visible or provable to the common person.

The government’s current and future plans for taking away liberty are carefully masked by a myriad of executive orders, and hidden memos—sealed under the cover of National Security—hardly the stuff needed to rally the world around us. Kokesh and his brash statements show he hasn’t thought this out very well and appears to be heading for trouble.

While I would agree that no jurisdiction should be able to ban open carry under the Second Amendment, hinting at an armed confrontation is not the way to go about getting those laws changed. My objection to this act of “civil disobedience” proposed by Kokesh is that it’s not going to help gain support for second amendment rights or motivate any official in DC to feel more comfortable about changing the law.

It may be empowering to the macho types who want to make a dramatic public statement, but most people will merely see it as a stupid violation of DC law and approve of police action to arrest them. Few will see this as standing up against something unjust, and it may assist government in further demonizing pro-gun people as extremists. It may even prompt more states to ban open carry.

For another prominent voice in the alternative media who has questioned Kokesh’s planned armed march, see my article, “He’s either on the other side or he’s not very bright:” Dr. Stan Monteith on Adam Kokesh and his planned armed July 4th March on Washington.

“Grandpa Liberty”, Dr. Stan Monteith, a 50-year veteran researcher of alternative information suppressed by the mass media, and radio broadcaster since 1993, said (at 42:43) on the May 8, 2013 episode of Radio Liberty in response to a caller’s question about Adam Kokesh‘s planned armed July 4th march on Washington, D.C. (emphasis mine):

I think that he could not do more harm to the conservative movement. If he wants to have a march on Washington, fine. If he wants to have an armed march on Washington, he’s laying this thing open for a confrontation, and that’s the last thing we want to do. What we want to do is educate people. We don’t want an armed confrontation. I think that certainly he’s either on the other side or he’s not very bright.
