January 29, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – The conservative investigative outlet Project Veritas has released yet another video identifying a third and fourth organizer with Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign as proponents of far-left movements who openly pine for “militancy” against their political enemies.

Mason Baird and Daniel Taylor are field organizers for the socialist candidate’s South Carolina campaign, who spoke openly with an undercover journalist about attracting “truly radical people,” including anarchists and Marxists, who are “obviously” not “outward facing” in the Sanders camp. . . . .

. . . This “militant labor movement” would be willing to “just destroy property and things like that,” but even that might have to give way to unspecified “other means” if insufficient to achieve his goals. “We don’t have to kill (landlords),” he added, “that’s my feeling; I think it’s damaging to the soul, but um, there were plenty of excesses in 1917 (the Russian Revolution) I would hope to avoid.”

Like the last two Sanders campaign staffers covered by Project Veritas, Martin Weissgerber and Kyle Jurek, Baird claims the ills of the Soviet gulags (labor prison camps) are “exaggerated” in the United States, as are the “persecution of the kulaks” – millions of whom were directly and indirectly killed, robbed, and/or driven from their homes under Joseph Stalin.

Taylor, the other South Carolina Sanders organizer, suggests the Sanders campaign was keeping the “more extreme organizations” such as the violent Antifa movement “on the back burner for now” because they “don’t want to scare people off,” but he also suggests the campaign is “mak(ing) plans for extreme action” regardless of whether Sanders wins or loses. . . .

I wish the Sanders campaign was radical. Unfortunately it’s just going to draw people like this into the electoral system. They’re wasting their time, if they were ever serious to begin with.

Yeah, these are indeed ugly times, right and left:

Racists and similar gravitate toward conservatives and the antifa and similar gravitate towards liberals.

Doesn’t mean anything except that hateful people tend to be either conservative or liberal.
