Footage obtained by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas shows a field organizer for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign claiming that “f**king Milwaukee will burn” if Bernie Sanders fails to obtain the 2020 Democratic Party nomination.
“If Bernie doesn’t get the nomination or it goes to a second round at the DNC convention, f**king Milwaukee will burn,” Jurek muses.
“It’ll start in Milwaukee and then when they f**king, when the police push back on that, other cities will just f**king [explode].”
In another video, Jurek says, “Be ready to be in Milwaukee for the DNC Convention, that’s all I’m gonna say.”
When asked about what will happen in Des Moines, Iowa, Jurek replies, “We’re gonna make 1978 look like a f**king Girl Scout f**king cookout.”
“Remember what happened when McGovern got f**ked in Chicago in 1978? Riots. F**king people getting beaten by the cops,” Jurek continues. “The cops are the ones that are gonna get f**king beaten in Milwaukee. They’re gonna call up the National Guard for that s**t. I can promise you that.”

Many Sanders supporters are fearful that the DNC will sabotage his campaign to protect their corporate donors and neoliberal special interests, but with no electoral options to combat the DNC’s confusing delegate system, there is speculation that that they will seek other, more violent, means to secure his nomination.
