CHARLESTON, South Carolina - January 28, 2020 - Two more Bernie Sanders staffers have been caught on tape speaking passionately about “the revolution” they're fighting, the type of people the Sanders campaign attracts, and the need to take direct, violent action against their enemies.
"I’ve canvassed with someone who’s an anarchist, and with someone who’s a Marxist/Leninist. So we attract radical, truly radical people in the campaign. Obviously that’s not outward facing," said South Carolina field organizer, Mason Baird, who said, “We would need a federal government and a labor movement that is working together to strip power away from capitalists and preferably directing that violence towards property."
"A lot of those people (on the campaign) who do that kind of work, they're Marxist-Leninists, they're anarchists. They have more of a mind for direct action... engaging in politics outside of the electoral system," says Baird.
Another South Carolina field organizer, Daniel Taylor, said that not everybody is ready for the "crazy stuff," when it comes to direct action.
"We don't want to scare off people, so you kinda have to feel it out before you get into the crazy stuff... more, more extreme organizations and stuff like Antifa, you know you were talking about the Yellow Vests and all that; but, you know we're kinda keeping that, keeping that on the back-burner for right now."
"It's unfortunate that we have to make plans for extreme action, but like I said, they're not going to give it to us, even if Bernie is elected."
Earlier this month, two other Sanders staffers were caught extolling the virtues of throwing capitalists in literal gulags, and fighting in the revolution.
In short, Sanders is getting the Antifa vote, assuming they vote.
Will Bernie disavow these radicals within his campaign, or does he welcome them?
