Undercover Video: Anti-Fascist Group Plans to Shut Down Inauguration with Acid

"Just f*** it up."

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas went undercover once again and uncovered a plot by activists to use nearly any means necessary to disrupt and ultimately shut down the inauguration proceedings for Donald Trump. 

In the first video of the series, DC Anti-Fascist Coalition members are captured suggesting the use of butyric acid released in the HVAC system of the National Press Club where a “Deploraball” event is scheduled for the night before. The two men, Luke Kuhn and Colin Dunn, talk about rigging the acid to deploy through the air vents which would evacuate the entire building due to the smell. Dunn also ponders a way to make all the sprinklers in the fire alarm system to go off at once. 

Another member, Scott Green, suggests doing something that “would ruin the evening, ruin their outfits or otherwise make it impossible to continue with their plans.” These meetings took place inside Comet Ping Pong pizza parlor in Washington D.C., the location of the Pizzagate controversy of late. 

An e-mail that was sent to Veritas’s undercover journalists indicated the planned reconnaissance mission of the National Press Club building “went pretty well” and made them feel “confident we can accomplish our objective with no negative consequences for our side, nor any collateral damage.”

In other meeting locations, activists talked about how “it would be really interesting if we could stop them from having the Deploraball at all.” Others said, “Be prepared to make the inauguration a giant clusterf***.” There were also calls for complete disruption of the inauguration itself, “just f*** it up” so that it can’t go on.

O’Keefe notes the anti-terrorism law these plans violate:

D.C. Code 22-3571.01(6).

It shall be unlawful for anyone to willfully or knowingly, with the intent of intimidating or frightening people, causing panic or civil unrest…

Because of the dangerous tactics discussed in these planned protests — after all, these aren’t peaceful protests protected by First Amendment speech — O’Keefe turned over all of the video evidence to the authorities before he released the footage online. A federal investigation has begun.
