Since the video's release, the Democratic Party and various non-profit groups purged the individuals caught on the tapes released by James O'Keefe, who directed the undercover operation.
Upon reviewing their history, these ringleaders appear at other Trump events with 'protests', but some of them go even further back in the history of progressive movements.
The history of these 'activists' points to a pattern of the Democratic Party subverting popular movements and turning them into party attack dogs.
Hunt described the night that Minter secretly directed their bus to avoid the Democratic National Convention after the group protested the Republican National Convention just a week earlier.
"Upon learning this, the Occupiers revolted against Aaron Minter, and he was forced to re-route one bus to the DNC. However, Mr. Minter further betrayed Occupy principles at the Democratic Convention when he got on CNN and falsely claimed, 'A lot of our people are not interested in protesting Obama'," Hunt wrote in 2013.
The Occupy activist connected Minter's treacherous activities all the way to an agenda directed by the White House itself.
"Aaron Minter is part of a small ring of well-connected people who repeatedly exploit the Occupy movement to promote events for partisan political purposes. He meets regularly with White House officials to plan astroturf events like 'Occupy the NRA'," Hunt wrote.
"I urge all participants of grassroots political groups to keep on the lookout for these types of organizations and individuals. If you expose them, you can ensure the survival and prosperity of the movement you've worked hard to build," Hunt warned.
"Before you knew it, the whole country was talking about the prison industrial complex, the environment, the tax and income inequality, our democracy being sold to the highest bidder, the housing crisis, the jobs crisis, you know, the trillion dollar in student debt that we have right now," Minter said in the interview.
"And frankly, if that conversation hadn't changed, Obama doesn't have a prayer in hell um..if it's simply about the deficit," Minter concluded.
On April 4, 2012, police took Aaron Minter and Jeffrey Brewer into custody, charging them for criminal mischief, making graffiti and possession of graffiti instruments.
Going by Aaron Black, Minter already held a record of prior arrests for burglary and menacing before he decided to slap Occupy decals on subway seats. The 'activist' was also arrested during an Occupy Wall Street demonstration later in 2012.
The "progressive stack" represented one of the tactics used to shift the attention of the movement inwards. An Occupier captured the moment that 'leaders' forced fellow protesters to adopt the new policy.
"In New York, they use something called a 'progressive stack', which means if you have your name on a list and you come from a traditionally marginalized background, race, gender, ethnicity um..anything that's traditionally marginalized, you get bumped up the list."
When other members disagreed, the speakers quickly silenced all dissent, which contradicted the founding principles of OWS.
"When we talk about privilege, we're talking about access to educational power, okay?" another 'lead speaker' chimed in.
"You have privilege over other people at different levels, or you may have less privilege than other people, um depending on who you are," he continued.
"Yes, we may all be marginalized, but some of us are far more marginalized than others," the 'protest leader' said, unironically quoting Animal Farm.
MSNBC credited Ja’Mal Green, a Black Lives Matter leader, as the originator of efforts to shut down Trump's rally, but we learned how Aaron Minter worked through surrogates, like Green, in the Project Veritas video.
"If I’m in there coordinating with all the troops on the ground and sort of playing the field general but they are the ones talking to the cameras, then it’s actually people. But if we send out press advisories with DNC on them and Clinton campaign it just doesn’t have that same effect," Minter said about tactics used in Chicago.
In August 8, 2015, Black Lives Matter activists, Marissa Johnson and Mara Jacqueline Willaford, suddenly shut down a Bernie Sanders rally a few moments after he appeared onstage in Seattle.
Aaron Minter was also spotted at a BLM protest targeting Scott Walker just two days earlier.
It's important to note that BLM has never shut down a Hillary Clinton rally despite her infamous "super predator" comments.
In the recent DNC leaks, DNC officials vetted BLM activists as potential "surrogates" for upcoming events.
"Hey team, can we please vet DeRay Mckesson ... to act as a surrogate for us at a young professional event possibly featuring the Chair?" party official Jordan Vaughn asked.
The DNC and Clinton campaign later accused Sanders supporters of violence during the Nevada Democratic Convention, where Senator Barbara Boxer taunted Bernie voters into an outrage.
“So the Chicago protest when they shut all that, that was us,” Minter said.
“It was more him [Bob Creamer] than me, but none of this is supposed to come back to us, because we want it coming from people, we don’t want it to come from the party."
In the video, Bob Creamer described how he monitored all Trump and Pence campaign events for the DNC.
“Wherever Trump and Pence are going to be, we have events and we have a whole team across the country that does that both consultants and people from the Democratic Party,” Creamer said.
In the DNC leaks, Wikileaks released an email with Luis Miranda corresponding with Creamer about Trump's campaign events.
The DNC Communications Director discussed "plans for Trump appearance at NRA Convention Friday" in a message entitled "Trump Rapid Response/Bracketing Call."
Over the past seven years, Bob Creamer visited the White House 342 times, personally meeting with President Obama on 47 of these occasions.
The Democracy Partners website describes Aaron Minter as an "associate" that "spear-headed" the Occupy movement in Zuccotti Park. Records show Bob Creamer meeting with Obama during Minter's embedded activities within the OWS movement.
Both People for Bernie and MoveOn admitted to playing a significant role in organizing the demonstrations in Chicago. Since then, People for Bernie has been converted into a propaganda arm of the Clinton campaign.
“Anyone who supports Jill Stein and the Greens is sexist and racist,” a People for Bernie organizer recently said about the transition. “We are stronger together with Hillary.”
While describing itself as a grassroots progressive group, MoveOn.org represents one of the "astroturf" groups that Brendan Hunt warned fellow Occupiers about.
Billionaire financier, George Soros originally donated $1.46 million to set up the organization, which markets itself to college students.
Soros funds a worldwide network of 'activist' groups, such as People for the American Way, where Scott Foval worked at one point.
Scott Foval openly admitted to working “directly with the DNC and the [Clinton] campaign both" as national field director for Americans United for Change.
“The [Clinton] campaign pays DNC, DNC pays Democracy Partners, Democracy Partners pays the Foval Group, The Foval Group goes and executes the shit," Foval said.
Once connected to other incidents, the revelations of the Project Veritas videos expose a longstanding operation by the DNC to warp progressive movements in order "to bring them to heel" as Hillary would say.
In addition to demonizing Trump, the Democratic Party clearly relied on professional agitators, like Minter, to foster outrageous behavior from the regressive left, which diminished popular movements within the voter base.
The violence at Trump rallies originated from instigated attacks directed by the Clinton campaign, which then coordinated with the media to demonize the "deplorables."
On February 13, 2016, Hillary Clinton criticized the rhetoric of Bernie Sanders while giving a speech at a campaign stop in Nevada.
"If we broke up the big banks tomorrow would that end racism? Would that end sexism? Would that end discrimination against the LGBT community? Would that make people feel more welcoming to immigrants overnight?"
The crowd answered each question with a resounding no.
