Libertarian Pundit Adam Kokesh Defends Las Vegas Shooters
Railing against the Southern Poverty Law Center and USA Today for acknowledging how the Millers were influenced by Kokesh, the host swore vengeance, saying that the SPLC and USA Today are “not going to get away with it this time.”
He also argued that because America’s political institutions — including the police — have become “homicidal … against freedom,” it was wrong to see the Millers’ unprovoked killing spree as acts of murder rather than self-defense.
“Let’s say someone is going around stabbing people, like, just stabbing people,” Kokesh said. “It’s not murder to kill someone in that situation. And [as] 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,” he continued…
Ultimately calling the attack an example of “not necessarily unjustified violence,” Kokesh insinuated that the Millers’ killing spree was the government’s fault.
