Libertarian presidential candidate Adam Kokesh spoke out today at the "Straight Pride Parade" in a stunt that left him with his microphone muted and a mixed response among the crowd.
Kokesh, a marine veteran who hopes to abolish the entire federal government, used the stage to condemn the entire "culture war" in the United States. He says that the rich and powerful manipulate citizens to fight eachother rather than the state.
A few lines were booed, such as one claiming that police are the enemy, rather than the "Straight Pride Parade" or "antifa."
To him, the fighting is "less productive than masturbating."
The mic was eventually cut as he revealed a "free hugs" T-shirt and gave hugs to the crowd. A police officer declined a hug afterward.
