In the latest Project Veritas sting video, Kyle Jurek, the self-proclaimed anarcho-communist Soviet Gulag fan who is a field organizer for the Bernie Sanders Campaign in Iowa, admits that he was recently arrested for “weed” after knocking on doors for the campaign. Jurek told the Veritas reporter that the Sanders Iowa field director quickly bailed him out.
Anonymous tipsters from within the Sanders Campaign in Iowa have since told Project Veritas that they are concerned about Jurek’s behavior and fear that he could be a threat to the president.
As American Greatness reported on Tuesday, Jurek was arrested on January 7 in Saylor Township, Iowa, for operating while intoxicated (second offense), possession of drug paraphernalia, failure to provide proof of financial liability, and violation of probation.
Project Veritas founder and president James O’Keefe wonders if the bail money came from Sanders’ campaign coffers.
Jurek was caught on camera describing his arrest to the Project Veritas undercover journalist.
“I got busted for weed by the f*cking police,” he said, adding that he was still going through “that process.”
“Went to f*cking jail. The whole G*d-damned thing. F*cking right after we got done knocking on doors one night in Urbandale,” he continued.
Jurek said that as he was heading out to buy some more “weed,” the police stopped him.
“Like the cop met me at the intersection and I went through and he turned and f*cking pulled me over. And then like immediately he’s like, ‘why does it smell like weed?
Jurek indicated that he answered, “I don’t know, I don’t know what you’re talking about. And uhhh, [he] f*cking pulled me out of the car, searched my car, found my weed, found my grinder, found my bowl, found my kief, took me to jail.
Jurek said he was there for four to five hours before he was bailed out.
He said he made his first phone call to fellow field organizer Danielle (Hirano).
“Then Luke answered the phone, Luke’s one of the RFD (Regional Field Director), he’s the RFD for, like, West Des Moines area,” Jurek explained. “Luke answered, he’s like, ‘don’t say another word,’ he’s like ‘we already processed you bail. Just sit tight.’”
In Project Veritas’ previous two videos, Jurek describes the Soviet-run Gulag system as something leftists in the United States should aspire to.
“Actually, the Gulags were a lot better than the like the CIA has told us,” Jurek says in Part One. “Like people were actually paid a living wage in the Gulags, they had conjugal visits in the Gulags. Gulags were actually meant for reeducation,” he explained.
“I feel as though there needs to be reeducation for a significant portion of out society,” Jurek says in Part Two. He pointed out that a gulag system for dissidents would be better than “putting them against the wall.” But he wasn’t necessarily against that either.
“If people are going to fight back against the revolution,” they need to be “eliminated,” he said.
Jurek speculated on tape that Sanders was just “masquerading” as a Democrat Socialist and was, in reality, closer to him on the ideological spectrum.
O’Keefe reports that since their reports were published, Project Veritas has received several anonymous tips from people who know Jurek.
One from a campaign staffer, who says Sanders Iowa State Director Misty Rebik knew of Jurek’s radicalism and should have never hired him.
Even more disturbing is a tip from people who know Jurek personally. They say Jurek is dangerous and becoming more radicalized. They worry he might try to assassinate President Trump. Our General Counsel has reported this information to the US Secret Service.
The Bernie Sanders campaign has not yet to make a statement on this matter, but several Sanders Iowa campaign staffers locked their Twitter accounts following the first exposé.
O’Keefe appeared on conservative commentator Dana Loesch’s radio show on Thursday to discuss his shocking exposé on the Sanders campaign in Iowa. Incredibly, Jurek is still working for the Sanders campaign in Iowa, according to O’Keefe.
He promised that another bombshell would be coming out soon.
