Radio Host to Lead Armed March on DC July 4th ‘To Put Gov’t on Notice that We Won’t be Intimidated’

CNS News – by Gregory Gwyn-Williams, Jr.

Libertarian activist and radio host, Adam Kokesh plans to lead an armed march on Washington, D.C. this Independence Day.

Launched as a group on Facebook, the “Open Carry March on Washington” hopes to get 1,000 supporters to march into the nation’s capital with loaded rifles.  

The group plans to meet at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.  From there, they will march across the Memorial Bridge into Washington, D.C. and continue down Independence Avenue.

While Virginia permits open carry, Washington, D.C. does not issue any permit/licenses to carry a firearm.

The Facebook page states:

“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.”

The event is said to be non-violent and states that if the group is met with physical resistance, they will turn back.

“There’s a remote chance that there will be violence as there has been from government before, and I think it should be clear that if anyone involved in this event is approached respectfully by agents of the state, they will submit to arrest without resisting,” the event’s page reads.

The event is open to unarmed supporters, journalists and welcomes law enforcement officers to join.

  1. This guy is a shill that needs to be exposed, and quick. This “march” is going to do nothing but give the Marxists and their cheer-leading media exactly what they want.

  2. Henry, JD, and all running this site,
    Curious what you guys think about this?
    I know i sorta have mixed feelings about it, but know it could be really messy, interesting to hear reactions on this

    1. I don’t run FTTWR but I’ll give you the dime answer;
      Nobody except the shooter knew who fired the first shot. And he took that secret with him to the grave.

  3. Soo, it starts out calmly enough, solidarity and all that, then, when the group crosses the Potomac some provocateurs can mobilize and stir things up. It could quickly turn into a really big mess. Just somebody horsing around and trying to grab someone else’s weapon off them, or doing any sort of physical violence at all, it would make a mess and a “told you so” media event.

    And the lefty press would have a complete field-day. It’s practically a wet-dream for them, having a bunch of “gun nuts” march on DC and run into bad trouble. “You see, these gun-toting right winger nut-jobs are outright crazy, can’t be trusted with anything. They should all be committed.”

    Marching into DC locked and loaded…Well it’s ballsy alright. If it went smoothly it’d be a really exciting day. Now if you could get a million people to commit to doing it on the same day, now that would be something very very special.

  4. “The event is said to be non-violent and states that if the group is met with physical resistance, they will turn back.

    WTF is wrong with this guy. So what is the point of telling everyone that you are going to Washington D.C., locked and loaded and then tell everyone that if they meet with resistence, they will not resist, will either allow themselves to get arrested or walk back home. WHAT GODDAMN MORON WOULD DO SOMETHING SO STUPID AS THIS? What does he think to accomplish by doing this? I mean he is saying WE THE PEOPLE will not be intimidated but then at the same time, he wants everyone to run away or give up if they meet resistance. WTF!!!! Why don’t you just give your guns to the government right now. What an asshole! Kokesh is definitely a shill. Only a complete an utter moron would do what he is doing. Also, like last time with the Ron Paul march, he will get ZERO MSM coverage. This guy needs to be hit over the head. Big time. And those who follow him ought to do the same. If you are going to Washington D.C. locked and loaded, you better be ready for a fight, to meet some resistance and to exercise your second amendment. Otherwise, you are all cowards and will only help the elite make the people feel psychologically helpless and weak. If you are going to do something, do it right or don’t do it all. Protests do nothing. When the hell will these people learn? I think they enjoy getting whipped.

  5. alright this idea at first sight is the most stupid Idea I have ever heard. Gathering a thousand patriots together and marching them into D.C. to be arrested, have weapons confiscated and be placed on the banned list from purchasing weapons. Then upon deeper thought perhaps his statement about running and just dropping to your knees to be arrested could be for public denial reasons. The best case scenario for this would be that when the patriots arrive at the bridge into D.C. they are met by a force of 100 cops armed in riot gear. A cop gets neverous and begins firing rounds at the crowd then instead of running the crowd returns fire and with a barrage of rounds the cops take a few hits and retreat from the bridge back into D.C. After the battle of “whichever bridge” that would mark the shot heard around the world as the government fired the first shot and the patriots won the battle. They could then turn around and go back to virginia and disperse into the population knowing that they have mad their mark on history and perhaps will motivate various other people to join the cause.

  6. it would take at least a million people marching on get their attention,a thousand people will just be made an example of.then the government would have a reason to declare martial law and come after our guns.but I cant help but wonder when will we all stand up to all the corrupt B.S. that comes out of D.C.will it be before or after our country is completely destroyed?

  7. What I want to know is this: is Adam Kokesh another Alex Jones, that is, controlled opposition? A march with loaded rifles? Hopefully, one of the marchers is NOT on pyschotropic drugs! And I’m sure the police will be there, all right. I can see a march, but not with loaded rifles, and not posted on Facebook…

    1. Hell yeah kokesk IS another alex “traitor” jones.

      KOKESH IS A JEW AND A RABBI!!!! Read the facts!!!!

      That should answer anyone’s questions about the REAL intent for this planned event: a JEW leading a group of suckers into the district of criminals with loaded weapons, to be enticed into a likely massacre, IS one thing:

      a JEW starting a massacre of Patriots by military traitors, to be broadcast of live JEW TV, which, if this does turn out that day, will provoke a WAR that day with Patriots all over the country.

      Then the kenyan usurper called “obama” declares martial law and the war in on 100%.

      REAL bad idea. Please repost this on boards everywhere and OUT THIS FILTHY JEW AGENT PROVOCATEUR!!!

        1. jewrabbizionpunk kokesh will get a signal and know when to run out of the way before the massacre starts. Everyone else is dead.

          Then the US finally explodes in rage.

          If you are not fully prepped now – you better be – real fast.

  8. My feeling is that this march will be interrupted and overshadowed by another false flag event, and this one will be a major mofo…the shadow government traitors and Zionazis, growing more desperate to shove their agenda down our throats, are going to set off a nuke in Philadelphia around/on Independence Day. Symbolism always plays heavily in the crimes and misdeeds of the Zionazis, Masons, New World Orderists, etc, with the most recent example being the Boston bombing false flag on “tax day” to keep the sheeple from thinking about how they’re enslaved and getting fleeced, with a not-so-subtle farcical reminder that they “need” the government to keep them “safe”, followed by the police state lock-down and arrest of the patsy on Patriot’s Day, the day the American Revolution started in the city it started in, WHILE that city was basically under martial law, with citizens ordered to remain indoors while heavily militarized “law enforcement” roamed the streets and gave a clear demonstration of psychological terrorism. The Oathkeepers were scheduled to muster that day on Lexington Green for an oath renewal, something the powers-that-be and corrupt police state apparatus certainly did NOT want to see happen, not that it would have gotten any coverage from the Zio Corporate lame-stream propaganda media anyway. Watch, folks, a nuke event is coming, and my guess is Philadelphia around July 4th. The psychopathic sub-humans may hit targets in the deep South and the West coast as well, just to make absolutely sure their agenda meets minimal resistance.

  9. Listen…you want them to know you’re not intimidated?
    You want them to cease and desist?
    Quit feeding them.
    In many respects I support Mr. Kokesh’s passion and ideas, but the 2nd Amendment issues ( along with the rest of the inherent rights government is attacking) are just symptoms.
    We need to address the causality.
    What’s causing all this?
    When we come together on that, I think we’ll find they think their paychecks are guaranteed and we’d never consider cutting them off.
    As long as we keep funding them, their M.O. will never change.

    1. Exactly. To bad he does not know this WILL be the end of the jews, worldwide. The world despises israel and ziontrash.

  10. Are not all of you sick of what is being done to this country? This is not an attack on DC. This is an act of defiance. This is people trying to do something about it. We the people are under attack and it is time everyone started waking up to this. While I do fear for those who will march, I fully support this action. The events intentions are clear and well documented. If the state responds with violence, it will be on full display for all the world to see. Just the buzz from this FB event is spreading the idea of standing up to this criminal government. A lot of people are going to be waiting to see what happens. No chance of keeping it quiet. Not having it in the news will further expose their lack of credibility. However it goes down I believe this will be a victory for the resistance.

    1. Rebel, a >>>JEW<<< is organizing this, like the parasitic jews who did 911, Boston, Sandy Hoax, Tuscon etc. This will become a war that day, started by JEWS, who started WW 1 WW 2 and many more wars and murdered over 150,000,000 Victims in the last 100 years. Learn REAL history, not the LIES you were fed in commie schools and on JEWTV.

  11. I don’t know about this idea. Seems like it has bad ju-ju all over it. I also wonder how big this bridge is that they plan to cross. I don’t know as I dont live in the area. If the bridge is big enough and high enough it would be the perfect place to catch a large group of people in a crossfire. You cant go right, you cant go left, you can’t go forward and you can’t retreat…sitting ducks. If he is really going to do this, my advice to Mr. Kokesh is to cut his troop strength in half when he reaches the bridge and leave half his force behind to secure a retreat if neccesary.

  12. His march is woefully premature! The American people as a whole are not yet ready to support this action. There must be a gradual buildup of austerity, pain and suffering to reach the critical mass within the general public to warrant and support such a BOLD in-your-face march against the machine. Slow down Adam! I fear this could be the tripwire that the Federal Government is looking for to crack down on patriots and veterans. A strategic calculation is needed to assess the cost/benefit of such a march. Once you cross Memorial bridge into the District with firearms you will be arrested!

  13. I have been thinking about this proposed march, since I read it yesterday… it’s a bad idea. If you read history and learn from mistakes of the past, you will know that this is a bad idea.

    For example, in 1905 Russia leading up the Bolshevik Revolution; a day called “Bloody Sunday”:

    On January 2nd, when the bad war news swept the Empire, organized labour disturbances broke out in St. Petersburg’s huge Putilov Works. A strike was called, but because of the general situation, Father Gapon said he would settle the matters in dispute by direct appeal to the Tzar.
    The idea appealed to the majority of the workers, but the “Radicals” opposed it. However, on Sunday afternoon January 22nd, 1905, thousands of workmen, accompanied by their wives and children, formed into a procession to accompany Father Gapon to the palace gates. According to the authentic reports the procession was entirely orderly. Petitioners carried hastily made banners expressing loyalty to the “Little Father”. At the palace gates, without the slightest warning, the procession was thrown into utter confusion by a withering volley of rifle and machine gun fire. Hundreds of workers and their families were slaughtered. The square in front of the Palace was turned into a space of agonized chaos. January 22nd, 1905 has been known as “Bloody Sunday” ever since. Was Nicholas II responsible ? It is a proven fact that he was not in the Palace, or in the city, at the time. It is known that an officer of the guard ordered the troops to fire. It is quite possible he was a “Cell” carrying out the terrorist policy of his superiors. This act was the “spark” that touched the “tinder” provided by the revolutionary leaders. The “blaze” of a full scale revolution followed.
    – Pawns in the Game, by William Guy Carr
    The point I want to make is this: If someone else fires into the DC crowd as your procession of armed companions walks down the street, who do you think will be blamed? Who else will have to pay the price for your actions?

    I understand that you are anxious to make a show of force, but you will be out gunned, and you most likely will be arrested whether anything happens or not.

    Just wait. Jack boots will be arriving at your doorstep soon enough, and you can deal with them then. I admire your courage (naive as it may be) but you will not be doing your family, friends, or community any service if your ass is sitting in a gulag with “domestic terrorist” stamped on your forehead!

    The Government WANTS a revolution… let them bring it to you!

  14. There have been countless marches to DC-and nothing ever becomes of it. And when it is done on a holiday, none of the treasonous traitors are there to be affected by the show of force anyway. IMHO, this would be the gun grabbers wet dream to have a group of gun toters, more than likely infiltrated with provocateurs who would possibly fire off a few shots at just the right time, and the American sheeple will be more turned off to any advance made to guard our 2nd article. I say it would be a far better strategy to be building our defenses in our several states for the day when the Fed. Gov. does make a move on any of the states, like on Kansas for their bill just passed there. We wait for them to fire the first shot, and then the game begins. Seems like the one to shoot first, loses. And I’m not so sure if Adam Kokesh is on the up and up, just like the mouth from the south.

  15. This can not end well with the state overreacting to their paranoid delusions like they usually do. The government is a paranoid schizophrenic that the people must constantly walk on eggshells over to interact with. We put people away for this kind of thing. Government should be no exception.

  16. just like the dough boy revolt… Patton under orders from MacArthur fixed bayonets and charged on US veterans…. and that was 90 years ago or so… this will NOT end well,
    What you wouldn’t post last time? why because it wasn’t politically correct? I’ll keep trying

    1. This isn’t 90 years ago and we are not Dough Boys and those fellas back then still had a hell of a lot more freedom than we do now.
      In short, they had a choice and I did toss your other comment because I am always suspicious of defeatist talk. Personally, I think if the intent of this march is to lock and load, go forth, and then surrender, it would seem like a really stupid idea.

  17. If it goes forward, I really hope nobody with a long range rifle safely in a hide on the Virginia side decides to put a few rounds over the marcher’s heads into the cops waiting on the DC side to mess it up. I really hope that doesn’t happen. And I hope that C130 out of Martin or Langley circling overhead is just a C130 and not an AC130.

    But…facebook? Honestly, way for the feds to instantly gather everybody’s details, family info, friends, connections, etc. Even if nothing goes wrong, look for weapon forfeiture for “psychological” reasons for 100% of the participants. It’s just too tempting for the Obama admin to pass up the opportunity to make an example of lawful dissenters while pushing the gun-grab agenda.

    But a million is definitely a stronger message than 1000, or 10,000.

  18. First of all, even if this guy had 1000 of his nearest and dearest with him for this, knew them all by face, it doesn’t mean that everyone else would, and would be able to keep trouble makers out.
    Look what happened when the tea party tried marches, and gatherings, the opposition put plants in to start crap to make the tea party people look like radicals and idiots.
    To have these guns loaded, (or at least Kokesh states they are to be) and makes that fact Well known, is asking for trouble.
    Bad idea, or a set up?
    Something not right here, imo.
    And like Henry said above (paraphrase), lock, load, go forward, surrender, stupid idea.
