Bernie Staffers Lock Twitter Accounts After Bombshell Project Veritas Revelations
Campaign directors go private as undercover video goes viral
Two of Bernie Sanders presidential campaign directors scrambled to lock their Twitter accounts following the undercover video released on Tuesday by Project Veritas revealing bombshell revelations about their boss's election policies.
The video shows a "top-tier organizer," saying "Milwaukee will burn" if Sanders fails to win the Democratic nomination.
In James O’Keefe’s video, which was posted on Tuesday, Bernie's Iowa Field Organizer Kyle Jurek advocates using violence against those who
exercise their free speech rights.
He also admits that Sanders free education policies are really all about mass indoctrination.
The undercover Project Veritas journalists are seen questioning Jurek as he repeatedly advocates violence and extremism.
Jurek also adds that supporters of President Donald Trump should be re-educated and declares that “f***ing cities burn” if he re-elected.
"There’s a reason Joseph Stalin had gulags, right?” Jurek says.
“And actually, gulags were a lot better than what the CIA has told us that they were."
"Like, people were actually paid a living wage in gulags, they had conjugal visits in gulags, gulags were actually meant for like re-education.”
The staffer also talks about violence against police in the event of Sander's loss.
“The cops are gonna be the ones that are getting f***ing beaten in Milwaukee,” he warns.

Looks like Kyle Jurek has worked with Iowa Co Field Director @brookew_adams and the Sanders Campaign called Kyle a "top-tier organizer."— James O'Keefe (@JamesOKeefeIII) January 14, 2020
Looks like the @BernieSanders campaign has already implemented SOVIET style censorship and deleted their praise of this man. #Expose2020 pic.twitter.com/Om0QFWsM84
Below is a partial transcript of the conversation:
Journalist: So if Trump gets re-elected, what?
Jurek: F***ing cities burn.J
Journalist: Do you even think that some of these like, MAGA people could be “re-educated?”
Jurek: I mean, we gotta try, so like, in Nazi Germany after the fall of the Nazi party there was s**t ton of the populace that was f***ing Nazified. Germany had to spend billions of dollars re-educating their f***ing people to not be Nazis. Like, we’re probably going to have to do the same f***ing thing here. That’s kind of what Bernie’s whole f***ing like, “hey, free education for everybody!” because we’re going to have to teach you to not be a f***ing Nazi. … There’s a reason Joseph Stalin had gulags, right? And actually, gulags were a lot better than what the CIA has told us that they were. Like, people were actually paid a living wage in gulags, they had conjugal visits in gulags, gulags were actually meant for like re-education. … Greatest way to break f***ing billionaire of their like privilege and the idea that they’re superior, go out and break rocks for 12 hours a day. You’re now a working-class person and you’re going to f***ing learn what that means, right?
Amid the Project Veritas Expose, Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts accused Sanders of telling her he did not think a woman could win the presidency.
According to The New York Times, Sanders denied making the remark earlier on Monday and accused the Warren campaign staff of “lying” about it, in a statement intended to refute a news report by CNN that relied on anonymous sources.
Sanders alleged remark risks alienating many Democrats, and Ms. Warren said on the record that he did make the comment.
Last year, some of Sanders 2020 campaign staffers quit over the "poverty wages" they're receiving.
Sanders has pledged he would institute a $15-per-hour minimum wage for American workers if he wins the White House next year.
Unionized workers on Sanders’ own campaign, however, say they wish he would start now -- by practicing what he preaches and paying a higher wage to them.
The staffers voiced their grievances in a letter to Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir, claiming they “cannot be expected to build the largest grassroots organizing program in American history while making poverty wages,” according to the Washington Post.
