A member of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign is vowing there will be violent repercussions and even death to those who oppose the candidate.
An explosive new video from Project Veritas features disturbing comments from Kyle Jurek, a Sanders campaign staffer working out of the Iowa office who is calling for cities to “burn” if President Donald Trump is reelected.
**Warning for vulgar language**
The leftist campaign field organizer, who has reportedly been paid about $10,000 since he began his role with the Sanders campaign, declared that “fascists” supporting Trump and those opposed to the socialist cause “deserve a violent reaction.”
“So if Trump gets re-elected, what—” an undercover journalist for Project Veritas Action Fund asked Jurek, in one of the recorded segments.
“F**king cities burn,” he replied. “Whatever it takes.”
He went on to express his extreme views about free speech and its “repercussions.”
“And that’s why they’re like ‘oh, Anti-Fascists are violent,’ it’s because we’re willing to go above and beyond what the law says is acceptable,” he said. “Like oh free speech, yeah, they try to be like ‘oh you’re against free speech’ and no, we’re not against free speech, we’re against hate speech. And if your free speech is something that these people shouldn’t exist, then I don’t give a f**k if it’s free speech or not, you don’t need… free speech has repercussions.”
Jurek continued to expound on his take on free speech rights which are guaranteed by the First Amendment.
“Yeah there are consequences to your f**king actions, right? And if your speech is calling for people to be eliminated on the base of race, gender, religious… like for whatever reason, things that people can’t change, then you should expect a f**kin’ violent reaction. And you deserve a violent reaction. Because that’s just an unacceptable thing. It’s not acceptable,” he told the Project Veritas journalist.
“The only thing that fascists understand is violence. So, the only way you can confront them is with violence,” he said.
The recordings span over several months as the undercover reporter spoke with the Sanders staffer who was clear that even Democrats opposed to the Vermont senator will face violent reactions.
“If Bernie doesn’t get the nomination or it goes to a second round at the DNC Convention, f**king Milwaukee will burn. It’ll start in Milwaukee and when police push back on that, then other cities will just f**king -” he said, making a gesture with his hands expressing an explosion.
“I’m ready to throw down now. I don’t want to wait and have to wait for f**king DNC,” Jurek said, referring to the Democratic National Committee and the July convention set to be held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He made it clear that Democratic candidates, the liberal media and even moderates would not be immune from the coming “revolution” he is speaking of within the party.
“The billionaire class. The f**king media, pundits. Walk into that MSNBC studios, drag those motherf**kers out by their hair and light them on fire in the streets,” he said, adding that liberal Democrats should “get the f**king wall first” and be placed in Gulags or be put to death.
“What are we going to do with those people that resist the change?” the undercover journalist asked Jurek in one clip.
“Well, I’ll tell you what in Cuba, what did they do to reactionaries?” the staffer asked.
“They shot them on a beach,” the reporter responded.
Jurek began nodding and, laughing, said, “You want to fight against the revolution, you’re going to die for it, motherf**ker!”
He lashed out at supporters of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, expressing his frustration over how the Massachusetts Democrat is at times compared to Sanders.
“Yeah, like we’re not on the same team guys. Like you know, like I know you guys like to say like, ‘Hey, Warren’s just like Bernie but a woman.’ But guess what? We’re not on the same team,” he declared.
Jurek did have one criticism of his candidate.
“Bernie’s a bad judge of character, so like he has like, uh, (Jeff) Weaver who is his like, one of his like campaign, like senior advisors, uh, is a s**ty f**king human. But he likes him. You know, Bernie likes him,” Jurek said.
“Bernie’s, you know, he’s 78 years old, he’s like set in his ways. You know, if that’s one weakness that Bernie has it’s he’s a bad judge of character with some people. Like he loves Elizabeth, like he’s friends with Elizabeth Warren,” he continued. “What can you do? I mean Bernie has started opening up lines of attack against Warren. But he keeps it policy-based.”
He criticized those who are supporting Warren, or any other candidate, based on gender.
“So like you’re okay with a woman if she has worse policies? Like, just because she’s a woman, because she has a vagina, that’s why you’re going to vote for her,” he said. “The world is on fire, this is an emergency situation, and you’re hung up on vaginas.”
Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe told viewers to stay tuned for the next video installment to be released featuring Jurek.
“Is Kyle Jurek the true but hidden face of the Sanders campaign?” O’Keefe asked at end of the video, wondering if the 2020 hopeful’s campaign would “fire” Jurek or claim he is a “lone wolf” who does not represent the Sanders’ views.
“In our next release,” O’Keefe promised, “you will hear Jurek say some of the most shocking and disturbing totalitarian aspirations ever spoken during a presidential campaign.”
