Jacks – who works as a trainer, mentor and protest leader at Our Revolution demonstrations – even outlined a plan for a violent response in case President Donald Trump is re-elected: “I’m gonna be in my garage, right next to my gun safe all night long … because this is how seriously I take this stuff.
He even suggested several ways to “change this country … with violence,” such as randomly murdering billionaires and so-called “Nazis,” stabbing people and burying them someplace and beheading people using guillotines. These methods of killing gave power to “populist uprisings,” he added.
Jacks even spoke of Antifa and how it took inspiration from abolitionist John Brown, who led the failed raid at the Harpers Ferry armory in Virginia and was subsequently hanged for it. He commented that the actions by Antifa were similar to the slave uprising Brown organized. (Related: Trump to designate Antifa, KKK as terrorist organizations as part of “platinum plan” for Blacks.)
Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe remarked: “Jacks represents the radical wing of the Democratic Party in Colorado--he is someone most Americans should be afraid of.” Jacks had already deleted his Twitter account ever since Project Veritas posted the footage.
The Project Veritas video also recorded Jacks' opinion towards moderate Democrats.
“Half of the struggle that I have isn’t with Republicans, it isn't with the right-wing. It's with ... moderates in the Democratic Party, with all these people that are just scared of Trump,” he said.
Despite his qualms towards “moderate” Democrats, Jacks expressed assurance that Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden will cooperate with his radical agenda – lest Biden faces protests from the left. Jacks added that as long as “there’s progressive legislation … across [Biden’s] desk” and Biden had “a functioning signing hand,” radical leftists can “occupy his house” and pressure him to sign.
The Our Revolution chairman even challenged Biden: “He wants to veto Medicare for All, let him veto it! He’s never leaving [the White House] again without protest. If he does veto, [there] will be mass protests in the streets.”
The previous four years of protests have just been practice for something bigger, according to Jacks: “The left is already geared up. We’ve been practicing for four years against somebody who doesn’t listen. Now, we’re going to go up against Democrats … who fold all the time.”
Other radical leftist groups have been preparing to stage an “uprising” if Trump gets re-elected for a second term. Far-left group ShutDownDC published a guide to stopping a potential “coup” by Trump – to prevent the incumbent president “from stealing the election and remaining in office.”
The guide urged people to unleash “sustained disruptive movements all over the country;” any other move would “only ensure more power for the violent white supremacist machine that is the Trump administration and its supporters.”
However, the president has promised to put down any Nov. 3 uprisings by invoking the Insurrection Act. Trump told Fox News host Jeanine Pirro back in September: “We’ll put them down very quickly if they do that. We just send in, and we do it very easy. I’d rather not do that because there’s no reason for it, but if we had to, we’d do that and put it down within minutes.”
