Just like I thought from the beginning, the July 4th “armed march” in DC was a publicity stunt by activist Adam Kokesh, to garner attention to himself, as the country was forced to take a step back

(INTELLIHUB) — Activist become non-activist, Adam Kokesh, hyped up the country as he announced in early May that he would indeed be leading an armed march on Washington. However, it looks like Kokesh just couldn’t muster up the balls to do it, as the armed march has now been cancelled.
Was this set up to fail from the beginning?
In fact an excerpt from Kokesh’s personal website read, “On the morning of July 4, 2013, Independence Day, we will muster at the National Cemetery & at noon we will step off to march across the Memorial Bridge, down Independence Avenue, around the Capitol, the Supreme Court, & the White House, then down Constitution Avenue to peacefully return to Virginia across the Memorial Bridge. This is an act of civil disobedience, not a permitted event. We will march with rifles loaded & slung across our backs to put the government on notice that we will not be intimidated & cower in submission to tyranny.” In my opinion backing out doesn’t look like mustering.
In the beginning Kokesh started out by preaching how, “This event is civil disobedience because we will be violating and/or attempting to violate various regulations that have been used to curtail freedom of speech and freedom of self-defense, however, this is in response to the DC Police refusing to follow the law of the Constitution. They have been in violation of court order and the law by continuing to enforce statures that have been ruled unconstitutional. This is one in a long train of abuses, but a government that cannot be trusted to follow its own rules cannot be trusted, and we cannot allow this lawlessness to continue. We must stop this criminal government!”. However, the fact now remains that he will do nothing about it, every claim he said means nothing, and was backed up by nothing.
Once again the American people have been defeated, and have been made to look like cowards because of activists biting off more than they can chew. The government pushed us back even further now, showing all Americans that they are still slaves, and that they simply will not march in Washington armed.
Kokesh ought think twice about carrying out his next planned event if he wants anyone to take him seriously. As of now the country has taken a step backwards.
After all, the people of Temple Texas had no problem doing what Kokesh talked about, as this past weekend they conducted an armed march.
