Bernie Campaign Calls Police On Reporters For Asking Questions About His Staff Talking About Killing People
The Daily wire ^ | January 23, 2020 | Ryan Saavedra

Posted on 01/23/2020 3:12:05 PM PST by Hojczyk

Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign in South Carolina contacted law enforcement officials on Thursday after undercover journalists with James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas pressed the campaign to answer questions about violent remarks made by a paid Sanders campaign staffer.

The move by the Sanders campaign to call the police on reporters for asking them tough questions comes after Project Veritas released video earlier this week that allegedly showed Sanders field organizer Martin Weissgerber saying he wanted to kill wealthy people and throw Republicans into camps.

The police officer who responded told Project Veritas, “They said they are going to have no comment. If you try to make contact with them, it’s no comment … it’s one of those things where they wish he hadn’t said that, but they’re standing by him.”

Bernie called the Staatspolizei.

Wants Project Veritas deported to the Gulags

Schnell!

Very strange approach considering his family were Nazi victims of the same tyranny he now espouses

All they’ve done is to draw more attention to the screwballs running his campaign teams. Police are not there to be ‘sicced’ on the average person asking legitimate questions.
Why are you so afraid to be questioned?
Now, we really want to know more!

All of Burnie's (🔥) supporters are either autistic (like Greta), mentally deranged, or demon possessed. BLOAT folks! They actually believe what they say.

23 Jan: Washington Times: Bernie Sanders’ campaign in South Carolina calls cops on Project Veritas
‘It’s one of those things where they wish he hadn’t said that, but they’re still standing by him’
by Valerie Richardson
Deputy Police Chief Scott Deckard confirmed that the department responded to calls from the Sanders field office twice on Tuesday, the same day the video featuring a man identified as field organizer Martin Weissgerber was released.
“Both of the calls were regarding individuals allegedly following employees and allegedly threatening employees,” Deputy Chief Deckard said in an email.

In a discussion in the parking lot outside the Sanders office in North Charleston, the officer suggested that the Project Veritas crew could be violating state law, saying, “I don’t know if you’ve brushed yourself up on harassment and stalking in South Carolina.”...
The Sanders camp has not commented publicly on the undercover sting, but Sanders state director Missy Rebik tweeted last week that Iowans “don’t care about political gossip” after the release of a video featuring radical pro-gulag comments from another Sanders field organizer, Kyle Jurek…

20 Jan: Tennessee Star: Sanders’ Field Organizer Kyle Jurek Bailed Out After Arrest, Still No Comment from Campaign Over ‘Gulag’ Rants Caught on Camera
by Debra Heine
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...

From “They’re Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Ha!”:

“Well you just wait, they’ll find you yet,
“And when they do, they’ll put you in the ASPCA,
“You mangy mutt!”

This jurek sounds like a real piece of garbage and I’d love to see someone give him a beating on TV.

pay per view would be nice.

After all, he’s essentially calling for our DEATHS

Most of this will play well with the Democrat base, but he might have slipped up with the limp-wristed gay gesture when he was laughing about Lyndsey Graham and Mitch McConnell probably not surviving the camps.

Project Veritas has this Sander's wild-eyed campaign chieftain on tape:
says he's going to "get armed," and has plans to "guillotine the rich."
