There’s A Gulag Or Guillotine In Your Future If Bernie Wins

Martin Weissgerber Project Veritas
Just in case you thought the threats against conservatives and Republicans by Bernie Sanders Iowa field organizer Kyle Jurek we discussed in our article “Bernie’s Gulag Archipelago” were the one off rantings of a guy with a drug problem, our friend James O’Keefe and his team at Project Veritas have captured another Sanders campaign employee saying the same thing.

A Bernie Sanders South Carolina field organizer, Martin Weissgerber, was also caught on camera by Project Veritas advocating violence against Sanders’ political opponents.

“I’ll straight up- I’ll straight up get armed,” Weissgerber said, according to the video. “I want to learn how to shoot, and go train. I’m ready for the f**king revolution, bro. I’m telling you. Guillotine the rich.”

Editors Note: Looking at the photos and video of Monday’s Second Amendment Rally and Lobby Day in Richmond, Virginia we suspect Mr. Weissgerber is pretty far behind the curve in his plans to get ready for the “f**king revolution” by getting armed and getting trained to shoot, but every revolution needs its cannon fodder.

“What will help is when we send all the Republicans to the reeducation camps,” the Sanders field organizer said on video. “Can you imagine Mitch McConnell? Lindsey Graham?”

And Weissgerber wasn’t going to be satisfied with just locking up a few Republican elected officials. “Let’s force them (billionaires) to build roads… rebuild our roads, rebuild our dams, rebuild our bridges. Let’s force them to do that,” he said.

In arguing for the benefits of “reeducation camps” Mr. Weissgerber is also infected with the same warped Leftist view of 20th century history that Mr. Jurek regurgitated in the previous Project Veritas video, arguing contra to Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and other survivors of the Soviet Gulags, that Gulags were not death camps.

“The Gulags were founded as reeducation camps,” Weissgerber said on the tape. “The first gulag that was opened; have you heard about Belomorkanal?”

Alexander Solzhenitsyn called Naftaly Frenkel, Belomorkanal’s chief manager of construction, “The "Demon of the Archipelago,” so yes, I had heard of the Belomorkanal.

Here’s how explained the significance of Belomorkanal, to clarify Mr. Weissgerber’s meaning, beyond its name being shared with a brand of Russian cigarettes:

Belomorkanal's historical significance lies in the fact that it was the first time the labor force was exclusively prisoners. By the standards of the rule of law they were innocent people, especially the peasants, the so-called kulaks in collectivization deprived of their farms and driven into a work camp. In addition to individual clergy and other "class enemies", as representatives of the pre-revolutionary intelligentsia were among the political prisoners - mostly engineers and economists, who, starting with the "Shakhty case" in 1928, sentenced on false charges of sabotage as the wreckers.

The writers at went on to say of the inauguration of the Belomorkanal:

[The inauguration of the Belomorkanal] was held August 2, 1933 - six months after the early completion of the first five-year plan and in anticipation of XVII Party Congress, the "Congress of Victors" in January 1934. It was necessary to conquer the two enemies. One enemy was the nature of the Russian North, which was standing in the way of a grand construction project. Another enemy was the pre-revolutionary past, as it continued to live in the minds of the prisoners. Victory over this past allegorically was portrayed as construction of the canal, which became a symbol of revolutionary change.

How does one conquer the pre-revolutionary past, since it continued to live in the minds of the prisoners?

By killing them of course.

The historian Yury Dmitriev—from the Karelian Commission on the rehabilitation of former political prisoners under Stalinism—in 2015 took photographer and writer Oleg Klimov into the forest near the Belomorkanal, searching for Stalin’s hitherto unknown burial grounds from the 1930s.

Klimov wrote that along the canal there are scores of them, many of which have not yet been identified. “It's the purpose of my life as a person and as a historian to look for the tortured and executed, but a whole lifetime still isn’t enough. Now, from archival documents I can confirm and point out the pits and ditches where Chekists buried around 86,000 people,” Dmitriev told him.

The monthly mortality rate of prisoners reached 14 percent (for the entire period of the Belomorkanal’s construction, between 100,000 and 200,000 people died or were shot.) “We have to take everything from the prisoner in the first three months. After that, we don’t need him,” Naftaly Frenkel explained in secret directives documented by Kilmov.

Sanders staffers Weissgerber and Jurek were raised and educated in our universities as communist revolutionaries. They aren’t two isolated kooks, they, like thousands of others, learned this stuff at home and at university. They are part of a growing and dangerous group who participate in the intolerance, intimidation and threats coming from the Left, and especially from the Socialists behind Bernie Sanders and Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and the  other members of “the Squad.”

It would be great if Bernie Sanders repudiated the comments of Jurek and Weissgerber, but we don’t expect him to because he knows that’s what it would take to impose socialism on America.

Bernie Sanders’ silence aside, it is time for the Democratic Party to repudiate these thugs or admit that blocking traffic, riots, assaulting Trump supporters and harassing conservatives on campus are just pre-revolutionary steps in their bid to remake America in the image of the Belomorkanal and the Stalinist Soviet Union that Jurek and Weissgerber celebrated in their candid remarks to Project Veritas.
