Libertarian Calls For Overthrow Of The US Government! Sedition?

Facts are stubborn things!

Other facts related to efforts to slow the proliferation of guns across the nation include the irrefutable.
Ninety-one percent of survey respondents indicate a desire for background checks for gun purposes.  
The US Government (Obama Administration) hasn't uttered one word or offered syllable that indicates a desire to "take your guns."  
Some gun facts websites are a bit dated, but the sites offer perspective on the extent and scope of gun ownership and related data. This link provides critical perspective as we consider people who boldly practice sedition against the US government and the American people.

Hover over the dots or use the search tool in the top-left corner of the map to go to a specific location. (Zoom in to see the Aurora shooting, located close to other massacres in Colorado, and to see other proximate shootings in Milwaukee, Seattle, and elsewhere.)

Some posit the problem with rising deaths by gun is a matter of a people problem vs a gun problem. I agree with those opinions and remain a gun owner.  However, it is irrefutable the nut case who attacked Congresswoman Gifford, the Tucson Arizona mall shooting, could not have perpetrated the extent of his killing with knife or a bludgeoning weapon. He, factually, could not have killed the nine year old during his spree killing if he only possessed a 9 shot clip for his pistol. 

The data speaks for itself and a dangerous and developing scenario as many of the nations guns are owned by people who are influence susceptible regarding their weapons. They may also comprise a large group of people who are mentally inclined to take action based on their susceptibility to propaganda and effective demagogues.  

It is unfortunate, but many of those people are politically and socially inclined to the conservative Right. I include many libertarians in the grouping as I strongly feel a libertarian is no more than a conservative who may for some reason not care to be called a conservative. 

You are probably aware of one gun-totting anarchist libertarian, Adam Kokesh, called for full-armed protest march on Washington DC. The protest event scheduled for this July 4th has been cancelled. However, it could be useful to reviews how sedition thrives in the United States. 

The Progressive Influence introduces Adam Kokesh. 

Kokesh's Facebook Page announcement of his ill-fated event.  First, review the nonsense insanity of his (false) 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. We are marching to mark the high water mark of government & to turn the tide. This will be a non-violent event, unless the government chooses to make it violent. Should we meet physical resistance, we will peacefully turn back, having shown that free people are not welcome in Washington, & returning with the resolve that the politicians, bureaucrats, & enforcers of the federal government will not be welcome in the land of the free."

  • Washington, District of Columbia
  • When a government has repeatedly and deliberately failed to follow its own laws, violated the fundamental human rights of its citizens, threatened the sanctity of a free press, created institutions intended to eliminate privacy of communication, waged war at the behest of special interests that threatens the public safety, killed hundreds of children with drone strikes, imprisoned and destroyed the lives of countless individuals for victimless crimes, stifled economic opportunity to maintain the dominance of the financial elite, stolen from the people through an absurd system of taxation and inflation, sold future generations into debt slavery, and abused its power to suppress political opposition, it is unfit to exist and it becomes the duty of the people to alter or abolish that government by whatever means necessary to secure liberty and ensure peace. 

    A new American revolution 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 pass from this July 4th while the crimes of this government are allowed to continue, we may have passed the point at which non-violent revolution becomes impossible. The time to sit idly by has passed, to remain neutral is to be complicit, just doing your job is not an excuse, and the line in the sand has been drawn between we the people, and the criminals in Washington, DC. While some timid souls will say that it is too early, that we can solve this problem through democratic means provided by government, that current levels of taxation are reasonable for the services provided, and that the crimes of this government are merely a tolerable nuisance; it may already be too late. While there is risk in drastic action, the greater danger lies in allowing this government to continue unchallenged. So if you are content with the status quo, stay home, get fat, watch the fireworks from a safe distance, and allow this Independence Day to pass like any other. But if you see as we see, and feel as we feel, we will see you on the front lines of freedom on July 4th 2013 for this: The Final American Revolution.
The libertarian radio host declared "The Final American Revolution." It looks like Kokesh's march on Washington DC has been cancelled with the anarchist libertarian exhorting complete overthrow of the US Government. We remind you of the definition linked above: sedition.

Think Progress posted a piece on May 29, that sums-up Kokesh and his false revolution.

After the Occupy Wall Street movement was squashed (at least physically removed from public habitation) via efforts of law enforcement including the FBI, is it possible the FBI and the Justice Department are as proactive in dealing with people like Kokesh?  

If we are to believe his choice of words Kokesh is an obvious threat to the cohesiveness and sanctity of the nation.  He is a danger not because of the seriousness of his demagoguery  he is dangerous related to kooks who actually believe and adhere to his demagoguery. 

If you have read this piece to this point, I have a question. Did you actually believe that Kokesh and his invisible army would actually perpetrate the march?  Another key point, sponsors who sponsor his radio show (if he has sponsors) should take action against his sedition. There is such a thing as enabling. Moreover, there is such a thing as culpability which is far more indicting and damaging for sponsors.

If you planned to attend the protest march, you should probably check status of Kokesh's false event before journeying Washington DC. Of course, after you check-in your firearm (with local police)  you could visit some the Smithsonian, the Capital Building and the White House.  Well, not really, the "sequester' has caused cancellation of White House tours until further notice.
