Project Veritas, in a report accompanying its latest hidden camera reveal, alleged that a prominent member of a partner organization to Colorado’s Democratic Party is an Antifa militant who supports using violence for political ends.

“We have Jacks on tape saying: ‘I will knock people down the stairs as long as they don’t die to make this happen’ and ‘When I look at everything, I mean again, I believe there is absolutely justified violence in all sorts of circumstances,’” said Project Veritas journalist James O’Keefe, referring to Kristopher Jacks, Weld County chair of Our Revolution, a leftist organization that supports the Green New Deal and other progressive initiatives and says in its bylaws that it is seeking “to bring about a peaceful political revolution.”

Yet, according to the recordings, Jacks is heard making remarks that could be construed as supportive of using—or threatening to use—political violence.

“We don’t have to actually cut heads. We just have to say that we’re willing to cut off heads,” Jacks said.

“If you want to do some Versailles [expletive]. If you want to do some Antifa [expletive]. You really want to change this country that way, with violence, there’s only one way to do it. You gotta get people that are close to billionaires and start just, random billionaires start turning up dead. And nobody knows what the [expletive] is going on. Nobody knows. Nope, I don’t know. They just turned up dead. And just three or four of ‘em is all it’s going to take,” Jacks is heard saying in the recordings.

“It’s going to take a strategic hit against the .1 percent that’s in charge, cause that’s who it is. Killing random Nazis in the street, random [expletive] bootlickers,” Jacks told an undercover Project Veritas journalist.

“I am going to do everything morally acceptable to win. I will lie. I will cheat. I will steal. Because that’s morally acceptable in this political environment,” Jacks said, according to the recordings.

The Denver Police Department is investigating the tapes, according to O'Keefe.

Our Revolution Weld County Colorado did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Epoch Times.

The release of the hidden camera recordings comes amid a tense run-up to November’s presidential election, with radical activists clashing in the streets and President Donald Trump unveiling a plan to prosecute Antifa, as well as the KKK, as terrorist organizations.
