There’s something in the water over at Camp Bernie, it seems.
Maybe it’s the radical Vermont Senator’s constant talk of “revolution”, or perhaps it’s the sense of revenge his followers feel after being cheated out of the 2016 nomination by Hillary Clinton and the DNC; whatever it may be, there are more than a few of the democratic socialists’ supporters who’ve gone off the deep end.
Back in 2017, it was a former Bernie Sanders campaign worker named James T. Hodgkinson who opened fire on the GOP charity baseball team in Virginia, nearly killing House Rep. Steve Scalise.
Then, just a few days ago, Project Veritas released an undercover video of Kyle Jurek, a field organizer for the the Bernie 2020 campaign, insinuating that the Senator’s followers would react violently should Sanders be jilted again in 2020. Jurek even went on to say that police officers would be targeted specifically during the hypothetical battle.
Now, another Project Veritas video has been released, showing yet another Bernie Bro resorting to violent rhetoric.
The scene begins with a man identified by Project Veritas as Martin Weissgerber, a field organizer in South Carolina, claiming that he is following numerous accounts on Twitter calling for French-style Yellow Vest protests to take place in the U.S. and says he stands ready to help make it happen. “If Bernie was to lose, I would like to see Yellow Vest protests here, stateside,” the Project Veritas journalist says to Weissgerber.
“I’m already following on Twitter, following numerous groups around the country that are ready to organize Yellow Vest protests. I’m ready.”
And here’s where it gets spooky.
“I’m ready to start tearing brings up and start fighting,” the Sanders staffer continues. “I’m no cap bro. I’ll straight up get armed, I want to learn how to shoot, and go train.”
“Guillotine the rich,” he adds.
Then, in an eerie callback to the propaganda being spouted by the aforementioned Jurek:
“What will help is when we send all the Republicans to the re-education camps,” he says. “Can you imagine Mitch McConnell? Lindsey Graham?”
“The gulags were founded as re-education camps,” he explains in another cut. “People came from America to work on the Belomorkanal, the Soviet project, for the communist project. It’s a beautiful thing.”
No wonder the Democratic Deep State has it out for Sanders.
