Far-left Senator Bernie Sanders clammed-up this week as pro-democracy protests swept Cuba; publicly blaming the US embargo for the ongoing plight of the local citizens.
All people have the right to protest and to live in a democratic society. I call on the Cuban government to respect opposition rights and refrain from violence. It’s also long past time to end the unilateral U.S. embargo on Cuba, which has only hurt, not helped, the Cuban people.

Sadly for Sanders, the self-described ‘Democrat Socialist’ has a long, recorded history of praising the Castro Regime.
Here are just a few examples:
“We’re very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba but, you know, it’s unfair to simply say everything is bad,” Sanders said in a “60 Minutes” interview in 2020. “You know? When Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program. Is that a bad thing? Even though Fidel Castro did it?”
“I remember, for some reason or another, being very excited when [former Cuban dictator] Fidel Castro made the revolution in Cuba,” he said, while speaking at the University of Vermont in 1986. “I was a kid … and it just seemed right and appropriate that poor people were rising up against rather ugly rich people.”
“For the first time in my adult life, what I was seeing is the Democrats and Republicans … clearly that there really wasn’t a whole lot of difference between the two,” added Bernie when describing the presidential debate between John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon.

AGAIN!? Bernie Defends Communist China, Says Regime ‘Reduced Extreme Poverty in Last 50 Years’
Far-left Senator Bernie Sanders double-down on his praise for brutal communist governments during a Fox News Town Hall event this week; saying China has helped “reduce extreme poverty” over the last fifty years.
“Many experts look at that moment on 60 Minutes when you talked about Fidel Castro’s literacy program as a turning point in this race. Do you regret saying what you said at that time?” asked the Fox News moderators.
“No,” Sanders fired-back. “Look, I have spent my entire life fighting for working people and fighting for democracy.”
“So if you look at a country like China, for example, is China a democracy? Of course, it’s not a democracy. It is an authoritarian country and Xi is taking it in a bad direction but what can we say about China in the last 50 years?” asked Sanders.
“Would anybody in their right mind deny that extreme poverty in China has been reduced? Can anyone deny that? Of course not,” Sanders concluded.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders stunned viewers across the country Sunday when he publicly praised Cuban dictator Fidel Castro; saying he implemented a “massive literacy program” in the island-nation once he “came into office.”
Sanders was speaking with 60 Minutes’ Anderson Cooper when he was asked if he stood-by comments he made years earlier praising the socialist revolutionary.
“He educated their kids, gave them healthcare, totally transformed the society,” said Sanders decades ago.
“We’re very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba. But you know, it’s unfair to simply say everything is bad! When Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program. Is that a bad thing? Even though Fidel Castro did it?” Sanders asked Cooper.
