Project Veritas just exposed another progressive operative that has embraced the violent tactics of far-leftist groups like Antifa. The watchdog organization recently caught a high-ranking member in a leftist group in Colorado who had some disturbing things to say about political violence.
Project Veritas founder James O’ Keefe stated that Kristopher Jacks, Weld County chair of Our Revolution, was caught on tape, explaining that he supports the use of violence to further the progressive agenda. “We Have Jacks on tape saying: ‘I will knock people down the stairs as long as they don’t die to make this happen’ and ‘ When I look at everything, I mean again, I believe there is absolutely justified violence in all sorts of circumstances,” said Keefe.
Our Revolution is a progressive organization that promotes various left-wing causes and legislation like the Green New Deal. Its bylaws state that it seeks “to bring about a peaceful political revolution.”
On the recording, Jacks makes comments supportive of threatening — or engaging in — political violence. “We don’t have to actually cut heads. We just have to say that we’re willing to cut off heads,” the activist declared. He continued:
“If you want to do some Versailles [expletive]. If you want to do some Antifa [expletive]. 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 [expletive] is 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.”
“It’s going to take a strategic hit against the .1 percent that’s in charged, cause that’s who it is,” Jacks added. “Killing random Nazis in the street, random [expletive] bootlickers.”
Jacks kept on in this vein, stating that “I am going to do everything morally acceptable to win. I will lie. I will cheat. I will steal. Because that’s morally acceptable in this political environment.”
O’ Keefe indicated that the Denver Police Department is investigating the tapes.”
Jacks’ comments come amid heightened racial and political tensions and nationwide civil unrest in the country’s major cities. He is not the only Democrat who has expressed solidarity with groups like Antifa.
In Portland, Sarah Iannarone, who is running for mayor, openly aligned herself with the Antifa movement. In a 2019 tweet, she said, “To those who say Antifa are violent thugs: I am not a violent thug and I am Antifa. I am Antifa because the Red Hats are coming after brown & black people, after Jews, after queer & trans people, and more. They are coming after our democracy.”
The candidate has also supported the supposed Black Lives Matter protests, many of which have devolved into violence. “My daughter was in the streets last night driven by anti-racist conviction. She is not an agitator nor an opportunist and she should not fear for her safety at the hands of Portland Police,” she wrote in a May 31 tweet.
But in an interview with a local news station, Iannarone said, “We need to understand these protests are part of a healthy democracy. Peaceful protests, in my opinion, might not necessarily be moving the conversation forward.”
It is no surprise that many on the far left support the use of political violence to achieve their goals. These folks know that most Americans, on the left and right, don’t buy into their Marxist ideas, so they have to try forcing them on the rest of the populace. Their ultimate aim is to completely tear down the government and then rebuild the nation in their image. Unfortunately, many Democratic politicians who run the cities in which these people operate seem unwilling to stop their destructive antics.
