‘DC Anti-Fascist Coalition’ Talked About Ruining Inauguration Event With Butyric Acid


An undercover video from conservative provocateur James O'Keefe shows a self-described "anti-fascist coalition" planning to sabotage an alt-right inauguration party with butyric acid bombs.

O'Keefe said the first installment of the hidden camera series is an "investigation into the groups and organizations that seek to cause havoc and violence at the Trump inauguration in D.C."

O'Keefe's activist group, Project Veritas, began its investigation after the election when it received tips about radical groups planning to derail the inauguration. The group ultimately discovered several far-left groups "coming together under the #DISRUPTJ20 umbrella," O'Keefe said.

The first video focuses on a group that calls itself the "D.C. Anti-Fascist Coalition." The hidden camera captures Colin Dunn, Luke Kuhn, and Scott Green discussing aggressive and illegal activism.

"If you try to close us down we will look for your house, we will burn it," Kuhn said in the video.

Green claimed he wanted to ruin the evening of those attending the DeploraBall, a gala hosted by controversial alt-right activists. Kahn agreed with Green, saying, "Yeah, if you had … a pint of butyric acid, I don't care how big the building is, its closing."

Butyric acid, which "is very efficient" and "very, very smelly," would force attendees of the DeploraBall to evacuate the whole building, Green said.

O'Keefe said he contacted law enforcement to inform them of the group's inauguration plans.
