The self-described “anarcho-Communist” who worked as a campaign organizer for 2020 Democratic presidential contender Sen. Bernie Sanders was arrested in the days before a revealing undercover video of him was released.
Iowa state police arrested Kyle Jurek, 38, in Polk County, charging him with violation of probation, possession of drug paraphernalia, failure to provide proof of financial liability, as well as operating while intoxicated — his second offense.
He was arrested previously in September for possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of a prescription drug, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Jurek is at the heart of undercover journalism group Project Veritas’s latest sting targeting 2020 Democrat candidates.
He was videoed arguing that gulags were beneficial for the Soviet Union to hold political prisoners and suggesting they could be used to re-educate supporters of President Donald Trump and billionaires.
“In Nazi Germany, after the fall of the Nazi Party, there was a sh*t-ton of the populace that was f**king Nazified,” says Jurek.
“Germany had to spend billions of dollars re-educating their f**king people to not be Nazis,” Jurek continues.
“We’re probably going to have to do the same f*king thing here. That’s kind of what all Bernie’s whole f**king like, ‘hey, free education for everybody’ because we’re going to have to teach you to not be a f**king Nazi.”
He continued his rant against billionaires.
“[The] greatest way to break a f**king billionaire of their privilege and their idea that they’re superior, go and break rocks for 12 hours a day. You’re now a working class person, and you’re going to f**king learn what the means, right?” he adds.
In still another portion of the video, Jurek claims that if Sanders does not win the Democratic presidential nomination at the party’s convention in Milwaukee, the city will “burn” and police officers “beaten.”
“If Bernie doesn’t get the nomination or it goes to a second round at the DNC convention, f**king Milwaukee will burn,” Jurek is seen saying. “It’ll start in Milwaukee and then when the police push back on that, other cities will f**king [explode].
“The cops are going to be the ones f**king beaten in Milwaukee,” he added.
