NOT REALLY ‘SOCIALISM’! Bernie Says Cuba, Soviet Union Examples of ‘Authoritarian Communism’

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.10.20

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders continued to call for his political revolution within the United States during a Town Hall event this week; saying Cuba and the Soviet Union weren’t really “socialist” societies, but examples of “authoritarian communism.”

“What happened and existed in the Soviet Union was not socialism. It was authoritarian Communism,” said Sanders. “Whether in Cuba, whether in the Soviet Union or whether in other countries was marked by totalitarianism, was marked by throwing millions of people into the Gulag.”

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.

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.

BUSTED: Video Shows Bernie Praising FIDEL CASTRO, Describes Himself as a ‘SOCIALIST’

Recently unearthed footage from 1985 shows then-Mayor Bernie Sanders describing himself as an outright “socialist” and praising Cuban Dictator Fidel Castro; saying the Latin American leader “educated the kids” and “gave them health care.”

“One of the things I think I learned on my trip, you know, as a socialist the word ‘socialism’ doesn’t frighten me […] And everybody was totally convinced that Castro was the worst guy in the world, that all the Cuban people were going to rise up in rebellion against Fidel Castro,” said Sanders.

“They forgot that he educated the kids, gave them health care, totally transformed the society. But just because Ronald Reagan dislikes these people does not mean that the people of their own nation feel the same way,” he added.

Watch the stunning admission above.
