On Tuesday morning, Project Veritas released a series of videos from inside Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign for president, showing staffers make bizarre claims and calls for violence inside the United States both if Sanders wins the presidency and if he loses.
The first video released by Project Veritas on James O’Keefe’s Twitter account shows an overview of the series of videos that would be released throughout the day.
In the video, Sanders campaign staff make unsettling claims about what will happen if President Donald Trump is reelected, if Sanders is not the Democrat Party’s nominee for president, and what a potential Sanders administration would offer to those who previously supported President Trump.
A Project Veritas journalist asked one campaign staffer, “So if Trump gets reelected, what?”
The staffer, identified by Project Veritas as Kyle Jurek, responded, “F*cking cities burn.”
Another journalist asked a staffer, “Do you think that some of these, like, MAGA people could be ‘re-educated?'”
Jurek responded, “We gotta try. So like, in Nazi Germany, after the fall of the Nazi party, there was a sh*t ton of the populace that was f*cking Nazi-fied.”
“Germany had to spend billions of dollars re-educating their f*cking people to not be Nazis,” Jurek continued. “We’re probably going to have to do the same f*cking thing here.”
Jurek explained that this is why Sanders is offering free education as one of his campaign promises.
“There’s a reason Joseph Stalin had gulags, right,” continued Jurek. “And, actually, gulags were a lot better than what the CIA has told us.”
He continued, “The greatest way to break a f*cking billionaire of their, like, privilege and 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 learn what that means.”

In another recorded conversation, Jurek promised violence at the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin if Sanders does not win the Democratic nomination.
“If Bernie doesn’t get the nomination or if it goes to a second round at the DNC convention, f*cking Milwaukee will burn,” said Jurek.
“It’ll start in Milwaukee,” Jurek continued, “And when the police push back on that, other cities will just” explode.
“The cops are going to be the ones that are getting f*cking beaten in Milwaukee.”
Jurek went on to explain his views on free speech, suggesting that violence should be used if someone’s ideas do not meet his approval.
“If your speech is calling for the elimination of people based on race or gender, or religious, like, for whatever reason, like things that people can’t change,” said Jurek, “Then you should expect a f*cking violent reaction.”
“And you deserve a violent reaction.”
