Libertarian gun activist Adam Kokesh is angry — well, more angry than normal. Recently Jerad and Amanda Miller, two married “patriot activists” who, inspired by the idea that the Bundy Ranch standoff may finally spur on another American Revolution, attempted to spark the coming battle by viciously executing two police officers in a Las Vegas Cici’s Pizza, have been victims of a liberal media blame game that is seeking to demonize these patriots.
The Millers draped Gadsden flags over the officers and, with a swastika pin, affixed a note declaring the attack to be the beginning of the “Revolution” before stripping them of their weapons and ammunition. The couple moved across the street to Walmart, where they were engaged by a “good guy with a gun” who paid the ultimate price for his belief that his firearm made him invincible. After Jerad was shot and killed by police, Amanda took her own life.
However, these two were not insane murderers, according to Kokesh. In fact, it was not murder at all. Kokesh claims that Jerad and Amanda Miller saved lives because those officers were likely to kill people in the future.
Kokesh, who was convicted on weapons charges for carrying a loaded shotgun through downtown Washington, D.C., railed against the Southern Poverty Law Center for correctly pointing out that the Millers were inspired by his lunatic ravings. “You’re not going to get away with it this time USA Today and SPLC,” Kokesh said. He claimed that “authority has become a homicidal institution against freedom,” which led to the shooters’ actions. You know, to preserve freedumb and stuff.
“Let’s say someone is going around stabbing people, like just stabbing people,” he said. “It’s not murder to kill someone in that situation. And has been pointed out about the Vegas shooting, when you have police officers that are going around and doing violent things all day long, and then they take a break for lunch, well, it doesn’t mean all of the sudden they’re innocent or they’re being peaceful because they’re taking a break from all of their other anti-freedom, rights-violating violence.”
“Think of how many lives might have been saved by this incident. How many people would these cops have killed had they not been killed?” he asked. “We can only hope that some of the officers in America are listening — if you care about your own safety — to understand that you are hurting people, and you can only push them so far before they hit a breaking point.”
Kokesh said that blaming the Millers was “kind of like blaming the victim.”
“And they want to say that I’m the guy that has some responsibility for this, that they need to associate me with the Millers. And there is an association, there is. Yeah. There is certainly something to be learned from this connection,” Kokesh said. “Violence begets violence. Turning to the institution of government to deal with these problems, an institution that is based on violence is guaranteed to make the problem worse.”
