Adam Kokesh–self-described “libertarian propagandist,” Iraq war veteran, and host of the online show Adam vs. The Man–seems to have carried out his promise to buck Washington D.C.’s gun laws and load a shotgun in the district’s Freedom Plaza during an apparent one-man July 4th protest against the government.
In a video titled, “Open Carry March on DC a Success,” posted on Kokesh’s YouTube account Thursday, the 31-year-old packs bullets into a shotgun while simultaneously reciting the last few lines of his “Final American Revolution Pledge of Resistance,” posted on his blog.
“We will not be silent, we will not obey, we will not allow our government to destroy our humanity,” says Kokesh. “We are the final American Revolution. See you next Independence Day.”
