SPOTLIGHT: ILLINOIS ORGY—ROME CONNECTION premieres Monday, Sept. 20 after Catholic Info Hour at 7 PM ET
DENVER (ChurchMilitant.com) - A conservative watchdog group is exposing more radical plans from the Left, including political intimidation and threats of violence.
Project Veritas released a series of videos this week showing Kristopher Jacks, a member of the Colorado Democratic Party Executive and Central Committees and chair of Our Revolution Weld County — an unofficial extension of the Bernie Sanders campaign — threatening to use any means necessary to prevent the re-election of President Trump.
An undercover video issued Tuesday shows Jacks vowing to employ dishonest — even criminal — acts to prevent Trump from recapturing the White House in November.
"I will lie. I will cheat. I will steal," the Democratic operative declared. "Because that's morally acceptable in this political environment. Absolutely. We are pirates on a pirate ship."
Jacks said he admires "the Right" for its "strong, violent rhetoric." He then assessed the strength of the Left.
"I think they [conservatives] underestimate how many people on the Left are organized, trained, armed and ready to go should they decide to do their sh*t," said Jacks. "And I think all it will take is our numbers and a reminder that yeah, there's a reason you guys feared the communists more than you feared the Nazis."
Should Trump win, Jacks said he is prepared.
"I'm gonna be in my garage — right next to my gun safe, all night long, on the 3rd — because that is how seriously I take this stuff," he warned.
Jacks revealed that he's given thought to the use of violence, including assassinations, with Amazon founder Jeff Bezos at the top of his proposed hit list. Jacks said in the video:
If you want to do some Versailles sh*t. If you want to do some Antifa sh*t. You really want to change this country that way, with violence, there's only one way to do it. You gotta get people that are close to billionaires and start just, random billionaires start turning up dead. And nobody knows what the f**k's going on. Nobody knows. Nope, I don't know. They just turned up dead. And just three or four of 'em is all it's going to take. All it's going to take is a pattern of I don't know, I don't know man. I don't know what happened. Just showed up that way. I walked in. That's how it was. That's the only way that's, you do that to three or four people enough to say that this is a pattern, and this is why — draw a dollar sign on their desk or whatever you do, that's what it's going to take. It's going to take a strategic hit against the .1% that's in charge, cause that's who it is. Killing random Nazis in the street, random f**king bootlickers.
Journalist: But like who are those like three or four billionaires right now that [would be killed] if it went to that?
Jacks: Doesn't matter.
Journalist: Doesn't matter who?
Jacks: Doesn't matter who ... I mean Bezos at the top of the list.
With regard to the use of fear tactics, Jacks pointed out that it isn't necessary to actually behead an opponent. All that is needed, he suggested, is the threat:
Populist uprisings have power because we used to kill people. We used to hang people from gas stations. We used to cut off their heads. We don't have to actually cut heads. We just have to say that we're willing to cut off heads. You know what I'm saying? Nobody wants a slicey boi [guillotine]. Nobody wants one of those.
On Wednesday, Project Veritas founder James O'Keefe caught up with Jacks and pressed him to explain his earlier comments.
When asked why he thinks it's morally acceptable to lie, cheat and steal, Jacks responded: "I will lie to people who lie to us. I will cheat people who cheat us."
"Well, how do you cheat?" O'Keefe asked. "What type of cheating are we going to be doing in this election?"
"I ... I can't answer that question," Jacks replied.
O'Keefe pressed on. "Why the obsession with guillotines?" he queried.
"It is a readily known symbol for anybody who has been in any sort of political and revolutionary time," Jacks answered, adding, "I stand by everything I said."
Project Veritas' video exposé comes on the heels of other Democratic operatives' post-election plans to disrupt civil society.
This week, for example, leftist group ShutDownDC issued a blueprint for revolution titled "Stopping the Coup," which lays out plans to bring America to a halt politically and economically in the event of a Trump victory.
Church Militant contacted Our Revolution, the Nebraska Democratic Party and the Colorado Democratic Party for comment. As of press time, none of these organizations responded.
