After libertarian loon Adam Kokesh posted a video of himself loading a shotgun in Freedom Plaza, just blocks from the White House, police arrested him and searched his home last night — and discovered guns and hallucinogenic mushrooms.
Police searched the Northern Virginia home of activist Adam Kokesh Tuesday evening and took him into custody on for allegedly being in possession of hallucinogenic mushroom while also having a gun, authorities said.
Kokesh, a former Marine, was held overnight at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center, charged with possession of schedule I or II drugs while in possession of a firearm, said Lt. Steve Elbert, a spokesman for the Fairfax County Sheriff’s Office.
A heavily armed libertarian whacked out on ‘shrooms. What could possibly go wrong?
The movie “Idiocracy” looks more and more prophetic.
Hi, I’m Ted Nugent. I have nine children from seven women, and I’m running for president.”
Nugent takes a sip of water, having delivered his potential slogan.
“Yeah, I’m thinking about it.”
We were in a conference room at the Hyatt Regency in San Antonio, where Nugent was an hour away from giving a speech to an association of entrepreneurs. It was a political gig; Nugent was to hail (without script) the power of capitalism, self-sufficiency and grit.
He would talk about guns, of course. (He always talks about guns. Indeed, the meeting room he had requested before his speech was not for a meeting, but for a gunsmith to come repair one of Nugent’s many machine guns. The weapon then lay in pieces amid the neatly arranged hotel notepads, pens and full water glasses.) But the venue called for the all-purpose conservative Ted Nugent, the one increasingly in demand on a range of issues.
And the one who says he is increasingly interested in running for office.
I don’t think these wingnuts have considered the possible consequences of arming up a bunch of women with free shotguns and then coming at them with transvaginal ultrasound wands: Houston Gun Group Fights ‘War on Women’ by Handing Out Free Shotguns.
The Armed Citizen Project recently began handing out free shotguns to 50 residents of a Houston, Texas neighborhood. Like the name suggests, the group wants a maximum number of armed residents in cities with higher crime rates, once applicants complete a firearms course and background check. Founder Kyle Coplen’s goal is to spread to 15 cities, although a gun giveaway is already underway in Tucson, Arizona — the site of a mass shooting two years ago.
Beyond encouraging residents with minimal training to fight crime themselves, Coplen wants to provide guns specifically for “vulnerable women.” The Armed Citizen Project website says this is, “Fighting the war on women, one free shotgun at a time.”
Following up on our story from last night about the ricin-laced letters sent to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a similar threatening letter has been intercepted on its way to President Obama: Third Letter Sent to President Obama, Similar to NY Mayor Ricin Letters: Officials.
The letter, first reported by NBC 4 New York, is being tested for ricin. It was received Wednesday at an off-site facility, and did not reach the White House, according to the Secret Service. …
The text of that mailing was identical to the letters sent to the mayor and his gun group, which threatened: “what’s in this letter is nothing compared to what I’ve got planned for you,” police and law enforcement sources said.
One letter was discovered at City Hall’s mail sorting facility at 100 Gold St. on Friday, a law enforcement source told NBC 4 New York. It appeared to contain a pink, oily substance when a mail worker came across it and was immediately flagged as suspicious.
An initial field test didn’t bring up any sign of ricin, a source said. But more preliminary testing Wednesday showed the letter tested positive for ricin. An identical letter containing ricin was sent to the Mayors Against Illegal Guns headquarters in Washington, D.C. and was opened on Monday, police said. …
According to law enforcement sources, the three similar threatening letters were postmarked May 20 in Shreveport, La. and sent without a return address or signature. Sources said the NYPD tried to pull fingerprints off the letter discovered at the city’s mail sorting site, but nothing usable was found. Authorities also plan to check for any possible DNA.
It wasn’t known if any viable forensic evidence was discovered on the letters sent to Washington or the White House. All three mailings read in part: “You will have to kill me and my family before you get my guns. Anyone wants to come to my house will get shot in the face. The right to bear arms is my constitutional God given right and I will exercise that right till the day I die.”
President Obama said in Mexico City yesterday that he wants to “keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people,” sending American Family Association spokesloon Bryan Fischer into a feverish paranoid fantasy in which Obama’s jack-booted thugs burst into the homes of Christians, grab their guns, and label them as terrorists.
(Insert sound of cuckoo clock.)
Fischer said that Obama is “setting up the stage to take guns away from evangelicals” and classify them as terrorists: “‘You believe in Jesus Christ?’ ‘Yes I certainly do sir.’ ‘Give me your gun, we’re coming into your house and taking your guns, you’re dangerous, you’re a threat you’re an extremist, you’re a terrorist threat, we can’t let you have a gun.’”
Last February LGF author Coracle posted a Page that got quite a bit of notice, titled Zombie Night at the Shooting Range, an event featuring a realistic, “bleeding” target that looked an awful lot like a zombie version of Barack Obama.
Har de har.
At the time, we had a few people who doubted that this was really supposed to be an effigy of the President. Well, the manufacturer of this lovely item showed up at the NRA convention in Houston this weekend and removed all doubt.
In fact, it was so bleeding obvious that the NRA had a rare attack of scruples and asked Zombie Industries to remove it from their exhibit. Buzzfeed reports: National Rifle Association Bans Bleeding ‘Obama’ Target, Others Remain.
“Someone from the NRA came by and asked us to remove it” a Zombie Industries booth worker told BuzzFeed in hushed tones. “They thought it looked too much like President Obama.”
When asked if the Obama likeness was intentional the worker said, “Let’s just say I gave my Republican father one for Christmas.”
“They are just scared some liberal reporter will come by and start bitching” another booth worker said to men gathered around the booth. “But ya know, he does look very familiar.”
