Adam Kokesh, certified — and certifiable — gun fetishist, was one of the people who inspired Jared and Amanda Miller to go on their shooting spree in Las Vegas last week. And while he rails against the media for pointing that out, he also says it was okay for them to go out and shoot police officers.
“You’re not going to get away with it this time USA Today and SPLC,” Kokesh insisted, arguing that the shooters had acted because “authority has become a homicidal institution against freedom.”
Kokesh asserted that the slaying of the two officers was not “murder” because police are likely to kill people.
“Let’s say someone is going around stabbing people, like just stabbing people,” he opined. “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 argued that blaming Jerad and Amanda Miller was “kind of like blaming the victim,” adding that they could have been thinking about the time his home was raided after he posted the video of himself loading a shotgun in downtown D.C.
Yeah, he totally didn’t do or say anything related to the shooting, but he clearly wishes he had.
